STAMPlorations 5th Birthday Celebration

Hi Everyone,

do you know that STAMPlorations is celebrating it's 5th birthday? Time really flies by when you are having fun. I am so honored to have been on this DT since almost the very beginning. Now for this celebration I had to choose my 3 favorite cards to share with you. A difficult task....I easily could have chosen 30, LOL!

My first favorite: 

I made that in June 2015 (see details HERE) using the following two sets
Blooming Buds and VIGNETTE: Eclectic Florals. It was one of the few times I tried out the no line coloring technique.

My second favorite:
(see details HERE) is from August 2015.

I also used on of Deepti's sets: Lotus Love


And lastly favorite card #3 
 I choose a newer one (see details HERE)

I made this card with one of my favorite sets - Woodland Friends

In fact, I love this set so much, I decided to use it for my new projects. If coloring is not your thing, you can simply color block and use the stamps as they are. I just added some white accents.

It results in a modern, graphic look. I experimented with stamping on canvas. In this card I used cheap acrylic paint and stamped on the canvas. I did not remove the sticky back, as the canvas becomes see through and I didn't like that. I doodled the frame and added splatters.

For card #2 I used water brush pens, diluted with more water. Patience is not my strength and I stamped onto the canvas before it was completely dry. so the back ink bled a bit. But I actually liked this. Conveniently looks like shading.....

The only difference to the card above is that I heat embossed the sentiment and did not add splatters.

Of course, we want YOU to be part of the festivities!

Jane said...

Oh totally amazing! Love all these cards but the first flower one has definitely caught my eye - just sensational!

Leanne said...

Beautiful cards!

Esther Asbury said...

Such a great line up of cards! Love the mason jar of flowers and the galaxy background with woodland friends!

Rebecca Yahrling said...

Wow, I can see why you picked these as your
favorites ... all stunning! Since I don't color
much myself, I love the new ones and may try
to CASE one.

Dee Earnshaw said...

wow these cards are gorgeous - LOVE the water lilies with the black background !!!

Verna Angerhofer said...

These are all so fantastic. I love all of them.

Maura R said...

Cornelia, I have been a fan of yours for a long time - you have such an original flair for all your work and I love the drama of your backgrounds! And that first card with the no-line coloring - ooh, la, la!!

conil said...

It had to be an impossible task to pick just three of your remarkable creations...even thirty would be too little. You just continue to astound me each time you post something new. They're always gorgeous, clever and innovative. That's why you're an artist, I guess. Good to see you showcased at STAMPlorations.
For instance, stamping on that canvas for just the texture would be enough but the coloring, doodling and background work make these seem graphic and, oh so, fascinating.

Gail said...

Stunning work here! I like the no line coloring on your flowers! Lovely!

Darnell said...

I agree with your faves, Cornelia, but also agree that I wouldn't have been able to narrow my favorite cards of yours down to less than 30!! Hugs, Darnell

Anita in France said...

You chose such a lovely trio to showcase, Cornelia ... each one a masterpiece of your artistic talent! You've made those cute little critters really stand out with those canvas backgrounds ... such cool designs! Hugs, Anita :)

SHartl said...

Eeek! I love these cute critter cards!

papierelle said...

Ich dachte, ich soll hier ein Blumenkärtchen bewundern und kommentieren, aber dann kommt noch ein Kärtchen und noch eins und jedes ist auf seine Art richtig klasse gemacht!!

cm said...

Once again, you've dazzled us with your unique twists with stamps/colours that always result in something fantastic! Choosing a favourite: not possible! They're all ever so innovative (stamping on canvas and doodling...seriously clever!); so eye-catching; so inspiring...

KT Fit Kitty said...

Hello, Cornelia! These are all so gorgeous, but my favourites are the critters! Super cute! That first card with the flowers in the jar is pretty amazing though!

Arianna Barbara said...

Wow! Love your blooms and their awesome colors! Critters are totally sweet and cute!!!

Robyn Oliver said...

Cornelia - amazing, I love all your cards. The waterlilies are so striking and the flower vase is just so pretty and beautifully coloured. Your 'new woodland friends card are fantastic too - the mono tones of owl and rabbit caught my eye and that amazing sky with foxy card.

Trina P. said...

MariLynn said...
