Steampunk with Funky Fossil Design

   Hi Everyone,

Steampunk isn't really my thing, but this new set called 
Engine Room from the latest release at Funky Fossil Designs is fun to play with. Especially for masculine cards, which can be so difficult to make......

I used a page from a dictionary and treated it with Gesso. Stamped the machinery on it and colored it. I added the Cogs and Gears dies . I used the wonderful new Patina Paper Pad for the die cuts. the sentiment is from the same set.

I hope you liked this and thanks for visiting.

Happy Stamping!

You'd never know by me that Steampunk wasn't your thing. Looks awesome on your card.

What an awesome card. I love the dictionary page idea, it goes really well as a background for the fab stamp. Hugs, Sue. x

You put the stamp, gears and paper together beautifully, Cornelia. And what a great idea to use a dictionary page for the background.

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
