Time Out DT #87, Addicted to Stamps & More #249, Happy Little Stampers CAS – July, Virginia’s Summer Blog Party

Hello … bonjour!  We have a delicious new challenge for you at Time Out this fortnight … our theme is CASE the Designer … and we get to CASE one of the amazing and super creative talents in this wonderful community … my lovely friend, Cornelia from Stempel Spass.  Cornelia’s fun, fabulous card is a little further down … here’s my take on it …  Time Out          

and here’s Cornelia’s creative cutie …

I didn’t stray too far from the original … a couple of Technique Tuesday Chickadees standing on an SSS sentiment … a stamped line from Papertrey and some die cut hugs and kisses from Winnie & Walter.  The chickadees were coloured with Zigs, coated with copious amounts of Wink of Stella and topped off with a layer of Glossy Accents each.  They’re positioned so that one can give the other a great big birthday mwah … or maybe whisper something about a surprise party!  Want to see a close up …

What will your creative imagination make of Cornelia’s card?  There’s so much to play with … the fun image, those vibrant greens, the wood slice background, that encouraging sentiment, the layout … what do you see?  Whatever it is, we’d love to see what you create in our gallery!  This time round, we’re sponsored by Happy Little Stampers who are offering a $15 GC to our winner (voted for by the DT) … and as usual, our winner will also be invited to design with us in a future challenge.  All the details are over at Time Out, along with lots of delicious inspiration from our wonderful DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Pooja from Reusing Cards & Quilling.  I’m pretty certain you’ll have come across and enjoyed visits with Cornelia and Pooja in blogland … if your haven’t (or even if you have), do go over and explore, say hello while you’re there … and enjoy every wonderful moment!

I’m playing along at …

    J’adore ! Une magnifique interprétation de la carte de Cornelia ! Le design enfantin de ces 2 oiseaux est superbe et idéal pour une carte merveilleusement CAS ! Comme toujours, un sans faute ! Je vais laisser l’inspiration venir jusqu’à moi et voir si je peux participer….Je te souhaite une très belle journée ! Bises! xx

  2. Cornelia (fun stamping)

    Awwww – one of my favorite bird stamps! They look even better with glossy accents! Thanks to you I also own this stamp, but believe it or not its NBUS….Shame on me…..Thanks for the lovely introduction – I’m blushing…..

    You know that I first saw these little chicks on your blog, and even before I’d left a comment I had to dash off and order them, lol! They are adorable and I need to pull them out more often. I love your take on Cornelia’s card. The greens just make me smile, and the shimmer, shine, and dimension from the GA is fabulous. Perfectly stamped “xo” line, and your attention to detail with the width of the sentiment and the birds’ legs is brilliant, too. What a great card!!! Hope you’re not overtired with all your “house” work, and that you’re getting some time to enjoy the summer. Missing you every single day, dear friend. Sending many hugs and smiles. xoxoxoxoxo

    Fabulous take on Cornelia’s card, Anita! I love these charming birds and your CAS design works perfectly with them…Love how you added Glossy Accents, too 🙂

    Wonderful case with your own twist Anita. Those chickadees are darling in the two green shades.

    I just want to know what that little bird is whispering in the taller bird’s ear…hope it’s a delicious secret. Yes, I know it is supposed to be a big smackarooni but made up my own story. Once again, your sweet, funny creation has caught my eye. Love that color almost as much as I love yellow. So vibrant and happy. (Sounds like a description of you.) That strip of x’s and o’xs is the perfect accent. Looks like CAS to perfection.
