Topflight Stamps meets the Day of the Month Card Club

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day! 
And since I am pressed for time I thought I am going to combine it with the Day of the Month Card Club, which has National Bird Day as it's theme.

You have perhaps seen my bottle series. First I thought I am done after 4 cards, but everyone seems to like them. Besides I got some spice jars and a bird feeder as Christmas present from a good friend of mine, so I needed a thank you card. Basically killing three birds with one stone, so to speak....although the only thing I manage to kill is mosquitos and mice in my house....

This card is quite simple, but it took me a while to get the layout right. I wanted more bottles but it became too busy. Should have used a bigger card format for that, but I wanted to stick with what I usually do. So eventually I scaled it down to one bottle only and two birds. Did some masking and colored with watercolors and markers. For my stamp supplies see below.

Don't forget to visit the Day of the Month Card Club blog to get inspiration from the awesome DT girls and our wonderful guest designer Susan, who was voted winner  in our 21th challenge.

I am looking forward to see your creations using birds!
You have until 1/31/2021 to link up your paper art.
 See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

Die Glasflaschen haben es Dir z.Zt. angetan, aber wenigstens hast Du dieses mal niemanden darin eingesperrt ... *kicher*

Die beiden Vögel sehen toll aus. Die hast Du wieder aml hervorragend koloriert. Ob die an die Samen in der Glasflasche kommen??? Ich wünsche es ihnen, damit sie nicht verhungern in diesem merkwürdigen Winter.
Liebe Grüße

The perfect Thank You card for the gift you received. Everyone likes these bottle cards because they are made so beautifully by you. Colors are as fantastic as the composition. Once again, you've made the perfect scene.
I always have to marvel at your fantastic coloring. This is a great card design too.

Fabulous job on the masking - one of my favourite techniques (I still get that sense of excitiment when you peel away the mask and "magically" have a little scene!). Love your card!

Geniale Karte, die Vögel sind ja der Hit.

Liebe Grüße

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!

Or you can see the same thing on my photo tutorial. With mirror
