Topflight Stamps - Chinese New Year

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day!

You didn't think I am going to ignore the Chinese Lunar year, did you? Not if it celebrates the RAT!

I am just waiting for excuses to play with my favorite Katzelkraft rat stamps, LOL! Since I needed to fit 4 of them onto my card I went with the A10 format. I also did not want to overcrowd them - they can become a bit territorial, you know...

I stamped them and masked them and sprayed the background. Colored them (Inktense). The numbers are die cuts (Papertrey).

The rat info I got of the internet and printed it from my Computer.

Here is it enlarged - it's otherwise a bit hard to read.

Here are the stamp supplies I used:

Versafine ink, Hunkydory Prism Glimmer Mist

Fantastic card for celebrating the Chinese New Year. I don't have any rats in my stash so cannot commemorate the occasion. But I do like how you have done so.

Bwahahahahaha! This is an outstanding card and so good for any occasion this year, wedding, birthday, new baby, etc. And I love how you matched the rat to the blurbs next to them. Genius idea.

There's so much to love about your card for the Chinese New Year, Cornelia! The images of the rats are so expressive and, of course, so perfectly coloured. The sentiments which you've chosen to accompany the rats down the long card are absolutely perfect. Love them---had a chuckle over them, in fact. A beautifully designed card executed to perfection. Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

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?
