Happy Fourth


Hello and a wonderful Friday. Today's card is created using the wonderful sketch that Heidi has prepared for us to follow on the Friday Sketcher blog. As simple as this sketch looks like.. i had really some trouble with it.
I don't know if you can see it but the paper i have used to stamp Tilda on is my newest favorite paper lol. My friend Jacque told me so much about this paper for a long time, but boy this CS is so pricey i was NOOOO iam not buying it.. i use Neenah paper.. so she sent me a full pack to play with lol.. thank you so much sweetie. Girls i tell you.. this paper is a DREAM. It kind of looks like Stampin up's Shimmery white cs.. the Copics blend like butter on it and if you cut images out it still does look so nice because the paper is thin. The sparkle of this paper is amazing.. it almost brings your images alive. I was worried with airbrushing but even with this layer of color on top of the paper it still sparkles. The Tilda with bird card was made with this card stock as well. oh... now you want to know the name of the paper right it is called Curious Iridescent Paper color "Cryogen White"

Edit: Please check out the 2009 blog hop "Cards for Heros". I was informed by Carole W. and i thought i submit this card. I do not have a personal experience with soldiers who serve the Untited States but i have the highest respect for each and anyone who serves to protect and make any country save. My uncle from my mothes side served for the Untited States in the Army. If you join the blog hop you can win many prizes sponsored by example Hero Arts ect. the first start for you to hop can be found at Cathy's fabulous blog.

  11. Aren't you festive! Do you have American citizenship? I know you've been in US for a few years, just wondered if you kept German citizenship?

    I totally know about crafting when kids allow it. The other day I had colored an image and cut my paper and then I was needed else where, so I left my unfinished card on craft table. The next day I went in to finish and my coloring was gone!! I looked for it everywhere and gave up. The next day I asked my daughter (4) if she had seen it. She ran to my son's room (2) and got it for me. the little monster liked it so much he stole it. It was the longest project I've done. lol

    Hope you have a great memorial day weekend!
    Hugs

  34. Stunning card Claudia!! Love the patriotic colours and that Tilda. I've never seen her before. I guess a trip on the magnolia site is in order.. I'm really liking all the 'older' ones I'm seeing lately... especially the Shabby Chic ones :)

    It's amazing the difference a GOOD paper can make when colouring images!!

  41. I love this patriotic card, as I love and admire all your work. Such talent!! I, too, was hoping to find a link to the new paper you are raving about in this post. I do not have Copics, so I am wondering if Prismacolor pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits or baby oil would also produce fantastic results. Have you tried it? Linda S. in NE

  45. Hi Claudi,

    Deine Karte ist wieder ein Meisterstueck geworden! Bezaubernd! Und den Cryogen White Cardstock liebe ich auch. Ist nicht billig, stimmt, aber dagegen kommt nichts an. Ich colorier mit meinen Copics generell nur darauf! Ausserdem mag ich den leichten Schimmer!

    Schoenes langes Wochenende!
