Combining AAA with LIM

Hi Everybody,

there are two challenges out there that I wanted to really play along - one is Less is More with pick a triangle and the other challenge is AAA Cards - made in minutes. 
I figured I need to combine the two.


I gathered my craft supplies - an embossing folder by Alexandra Renke, a cutting plate from Neat&Tangled, my favorite reindeer from Dixie Crafts and an already made background from my stash. I also used a Sizzix triangle die and a little star die from Lil Inkers.


Once I had my supplies making the card really only took a few minutes - way under 30 minutes. I even added a bit of sponged around my die cut trianglular tree. I did die cut the deer 3 times and glued it together - goes very fast, too.

Linking up with:
Less is More - pick a triangle
AAA Cards - made in minutes
CHNC - anything goes, option something starting with "R" (reindeer)

Cool Christmas card design. Sounds like it went together quickly too. That is my kind of card.

Simply splendid, Cornelia ... think this reindeer must be related to your tip toe-ing Santa ... and he's equally fun! Great texture and dimension! Hugs, Anita :)

Love that swag stealing reindeer and the triangle works brilliantly for a tree. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

Fabulous Christmas card, Cornelia ! This reindeer is so fun, he looks like stealing Santa's bag ! Gorgeous green background to highlight him too. I just remind you that at LIM we love to see large areas of clear and clean space with no texture, so, although I love this falling snow texture, it is may be too much to be eligible for our challenge. Anyway I DO love your card and we thank you for sharing it in the Less is More gallery. See you in January with our new challenges !

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
