A Wonderful World

Hi Everyone,

as soon as I saw the Less is More challenge theme I knew I had to play.....One layer and stencils. What could be better????

I used that fabulous iStencil and did some masking, as you can see with sponging the upper half in black and the lower half with rainbow colors. Added the cute little animals - they are from Cats on Appletrees. ( I recently bought about half of their kidding).

The sentiment is from Katzelkraft, from the English Quotes (those stamps you can also get here: Topflight StampsFrantic Stamper or Lost Coast Designs)

Happy Stenciling!

I so enjoy your artwork! Finding all sorts of new ideas & companies through you...
I love how you masked the stencil and then made the design so very colorful on the bottom half. This is an amazing look and works up into a great card.

Less is More is running a stencil challenge...think this one is a sure winner for it. Your are a true stencil artist and those fantastic solid image animals are so right with your background. Totally nuts about this card.

After gasping at this gorgeous split stencilled rainbow with the bold silhouette, Cornelia ... I laughed out loud at those critters ... and especially the dog ... hope he's not diluting all that fabulous colour!! Hugs, Anita :)

I LOVE your card, Cornelia ! Love the your stencilling of the city, half in black and the other part with rainbow colours. So clever ! And those animals silhouettes are so cute and funny ! Absolutely fabulous. I had a look to the Cats on Appletrees stamps, they are all genial, I understand you splurged on half of their collection ! To bad they do not sale online. Stunning take on our challenge. Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Less is More !

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
