More Hearts

Hi Everyone,

if you think this is a half hearted card you might be right ;), but I stamped it with all MY heart...

Its almost a layer card .... I use a Kaleidocolor ink pad. The pretty stamp is by Simon Says, as is the sentiment. The key is exact stamping. I drew a thin pencil line to make sure I line up the stamp correctly each time. Added some enamel dots.

Two More Valentine's Cards

Hi Everyone,

I have two cards today. My first one I made for this month Paper Smooches challenge - the super cute inspiration picture is below. I could think of nothing but using that fun bat - since both sloth and bats like to hang upside down....

I kept my card very CAS. Probably too CAS for those Paper Smooches folks...But I love it the way it is. Colored with Inktense pencils and a white gel pen.

My second card I made for this month Joy Clair challenge:

Of course I used my Joy Clair stamps for this - the set Love Tree and Song of Solomon, but the good news is - you don't have to! Just come and play along with us. You have until February 28th! And you could win a $25 gift certificate for the store!

Here is this month inspiration picture:

Happiest Wishes with iStencil

Hi Everyone,

are you watching the Superbowl? Well, obviously I am not. I much rather make cards ;)
I am playing in a couple of challenges with this card:

I used this iStencil 
27-00002 R SC

I sponged on it twice with the opposite colors - in between I shifted it a bit - this exaggerated the effect.

The sentiment is by Winnie  & Walter.

I am playing in the following challenges:
Pinterest Inspired - see picture below
Winnie & Walter - Create your own background
Stamping Royalty - Cards for Guys
Snippets Playground - use a snippet - black divider strip
I love Stampin' Royalty Challengesw&w_bb2ndb_challengefinal

Happy Stenciling!

Color Swirl

Hi Everyone,

here is something new - I did not wait until the last moment to make a card for one of my favorite challenges :)
From the moment I saw Taheera's inspiration picture over at Winnie & Walter I knew I had to play....

So I stared at that picture - I mean the picture in the picture and saw a swirl. And then it was easy! Do you see it, too?
Of course all my stamps are by W&W - the sentiment is from the gem set.

I like how this turned out, although I might just play again and do what Taheera did - make my "own acrylic" painting.

Do you know about W&W birthday bash??? Go and celebrate with them!

Muse #151

Hi Everyone,

I have not played with the Muse challenge in a while, even that I really wanted to play along, but tonight I finally managed to make a card for the current challenge. Michele Ferguson made this cool, graphic card and I immediately knew what die I  would use to CASE her card:

It's a  Marianne die, I used it last year a couple of times. I just love it -it reminds me about the LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana. Oops, just read this weeks requirements....

Well I am not into pop songs - no way I can guess Michele's song... can you guess mine? Actually its not a song, its a piano piece written by someone long dead. He never married, was kind of grumpy - got enough hints?

Here is Michele's fun card:

I just added some washi tape and an enamel dot.

So, not sure if I still can play along, but what the heck - this is card making and not song guessing... ;)
I'm linking it up!

I Love Roo

Hi Everyone,

as promised I'll show you one of the card I made for my little stamping get together last Saturday. That was one of the cards I designed and as luck will have it, it fits the current Less is More challenge, the theme is "down under" in honor of Kylie Purtell from Happy Little Stampers.

Now Kylie does not have a kangaroo in her sets, but Paper Smooches has one and it is just so darn cute! I colored it with Copics and fuzzy cut it. The heartbeat die is also from Paper Smooches. I cut through the heart that I sponged after I cut myself a stencil with a heart die. The stitched border die is by SSS. I mounted the panel on fun foam for some dimension.
