Windy Day

Hi Everyone,

I really like this "Windy Day" stamp from Katzelkraft - just perfect for blustery winter weather. After all we are supposed to get some snow here on Saturday. Which will be bad, because my huge oak tree just lost all its leaves just now and I still have to get loads of them out front to be picked up....


I masked, colored with Inktense pencils and sponged. The pretty sentiment is from So Suzy Stamps. I liked this the best. Picked it from my huge supply of sentiment stamps.... Splattered white paint. Added Washi tape on the side and a bright red enamel dot for balance.


In case you fall in love with this girl and don't want to order from France - you can also get this in the US from TopFlight Stamps.

Happy Snow Day to all of you!

Herrlich!!! diese Figur mit ihrer Windstoßfrisur!!!
Gestern war es hier auch sehr windig und eklig kalt dazu. Das ging durch bis auf die Knochen.
Deine Karte erinnerte mich daran.
Liebe Grüße, Flo

Not only am I in love with this image, but I LOVE your contrast between the brights and the grey! So moody and wonderful!

Ha ... that's such a brilliant image, Cornelia ... no wonder you love it! She's so beautifully coloured and you captured the sense of all that wild wind beautifully with the background and splattering! Hugs, Anita :)

Your gray background really adds to the stormy feel of your card, Cornelia, and the bright colors of the girl speak to the uplifting sentiment.

I love this stamp and will be ordering it after the first of the year...unfortunately, my budget has been totally blown (boo hoo). In any case, the card is perfect and the sentiment...wow, anything Lauren Bacall said is right up my alley.
Good luck with the oak leaves...just finished picking up ours yesterday.

Oh my what a beautiful card. The sentiment is perfect and that wind swept girl is such a fantastic image. I like your mashup of bold colours with the moody greys of the windy day and the white splatters let you know it's not only windy but cold too! Thanks for the information on where to get the design in the states. Thanks so much for sharing your creation at the Watercooler Wednesday "Feminine" challenge this week. Love it!

Such fabulous movement on your amazing card. Great sentiment and love all the detailing of the tape, the one red dot and the splats x

Hi Cornelia! What a great card. That stamp of her blowing in the wing is great! The bright red raincoat really catches your eye. Plus the washi tape brings all the colors together.

Congratulations on the fabulous card!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
