Shaker Card

Hi Everyone,

is me again, this time with a Shaker card, I made for the 50th birthday of a good friend of mine.


I took my Papertrey numbers and die cut them into a shaker card. The sentiment is also by Papertrey. Added some striped paper (an envelope liner - got a lot of mileage out of this one) and an enamel dot.

STAMPlorations CASEplorations May

Hi Everyone,

come and CASE with us here at STAMPlorations!


Our guest designer for this month is the "boss" herself - Shery Russ - the owner and designer of your favorite stamps - STAMPlorations!!!. I am sure you all know her blog The One Layer Mixed Media Girl and if you don't - go and visit, its a real treat!

Now I struggle with mixed media, but I basically just copied what Shery did. Used the Daisy Dance stencil, sponged in pink. 

 Then I took the daisy stamp and inked it up with Versamark and heat embossed in yellow. Added the die cut THANK YOU - (a gift from my friend Maria Fischer - you gotta ask her about the company)  the rest of the sentiment and some sequins.

Guest Designer for Cupcake Inspirations #358

Hi Everyone,

I have a surprise for you today - I am your Cupcake Inspirations Surprise Sweetie!!!
I am sure you know this delightful challenge - they have the sweetest inspiration photos! And its no different for this challenge.



The sponsor for the challenge is Create a Smile - a German stamp company, which has fabulous sets. I actually bought a few a while ago and then never used them, tsk, tsk, tsk... But now I had a real reason to pull them out! The background I made with Brushos, the bird and balloons are colored with Copics. Some Washi tape and the heat embossed sentiment. I mounted the bird and balloons with foam tape. Added an enamel dot.

Here is the sweet Cupcake Inspiration photo:

On this photo you see that one of the Washi tapes has silver stripes, but it looks grey from head on. But the silver adds a nice touch.

A Winter and a Summer Card

Hi Everyone,

I am playing along with the weather here, which can not yet decide if its going to be warm or cold....
My first card is for this weeks Muse Christmas Vision, where my talented friend Suchi from Suchi's Cardstock is our guest designer. She made a delightful card!



Here is Suchi's card:


I went with the red and green color scheme, but exchanged the baubles for penguins (Inkadinkadoo). Sponged the sky  and added falling snow with a Simon Says stencil and embossing paste.



So how about you playing along, too? 

Linking up with:
One Layer Christmas card challenge - anything one layer Christmas
ABC Christmas Card challenge - I is for Ink (background made with distress ink)
CHNC - anything Christmas
Merry Monday - let it snow

My second card has a more summery feel and I made it after the CAS Colour and Sketches sketch.



It is actually a tricky little sketch. I played around a bit, before I was happy. But I like unusual requirements and a real challenge!
Took my favorite iStencil - I can't get enough of it and sponged in yellow and blue. The acetate butterflies I had in my stash basically forever, made  a bunch of them a long time ago with STAMPlorations stamps, and those two survived a previous card....

27-00107 R SC

The pretty sentiment is by Happy Little Stampers
