Muse Christmas Visions #93

Hi Everyone,

it is my turn,to be your muse at Muse Christmas Visions.

I made this card with a homemade stencil. I basically took a sturdy piece of paper (actually an old commercial card) and cut a slim triangle out of it and used it as a stencil. And then I stenciled and masked and masked and stenciled until I was happy with the result. The little stylized stars are by Winnie & Walter, the sentiment is from Neat & Tangled. Trimmed the card a bit and added some black card stock at the bottom.

You likey? 
I sure hope so, because I want all of you to play along!
See you at MCV!

Happy Stenciling!

Eine typische Cornelia-Karte ... ich wäre nie auf die Idee gekommen, so viele bunte Bäume zu arrangieren, aber Du kannst das und bei Dir sieht's Klasse aus.
Und dieses mal bin ich dabei!!!

Another Christmas card under your belt and what a card it all the colors you used and the new ones you achieved. Goes without saying that the the design is simply perfect. Those stars, sentiment and black strip take your stenciling to a whole different level.

Eine wundervolle farbige Weihnachtskarte ist das geworden. Klasse - denn worum muss es immer nur rot/grün sein??? Weihnachten kann ja soooooo bunt sein.

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
