Muse Christmas Visions#94

Hi Everyone,
 
I am playing along with my teamie Lindsey from Bashful Blogging at Muse Christmas Visions. She created this delicate card, that has a dreamlike quality to it. Now you know, that soft colors are simply not my strong point. But I gave it a try.....

 
Here is Lindseys wonderful card:
 
 
I basically went with the layout and the colors, but turned it into a one layer card. The stamp I used is from Hero Arts. I used my Catherine Pooler inks (the baby colors) and my Misti to create this card. The sentiment is by Mama Elephant. I added sequins and sprayed the card with Shimmer mist - hard to see here but in real life it twinkles nicely!

 
You have until Monday Morning 7:59AM to play along. Would be great if you do!!!!

Wow, Cornelia, for a person who insists that soft colours aren't her strong point, you've created a gorgeous card using some lovely soft colours. I love the way you've followed Lindsey's layout but have gone your own way. The wintry scene is stunning, especially the way those merging colours make the white silhouettes stand out. The sentiment makes me wish that the picture on my screen could show the wonderful sparkle you've added. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

You might know how much I love this card because I'm such a pastel girl. But the vibrancy of your dawn scene is really remarkable and lovely.

Such a stunning winter scene card Cornelia. Your sky has so much depth and I'd love to see how it sparkles or shimmers in the light. One layer cards are not simple to make, yet you've turned this one into a real stunner. I like the simple sentiment too. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful card with the Watercooler Wednesday All about Christmas Challenge this week.

Soft colours or bold ones, Cornelia ... you're an expert with them all! Case in point, this gorgeous scene with the frosty, shimmery pastel sky ... it's a beauty! Hugs, Anita :)

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
