GOLDEN OLDIE! combined with RIC#28


One of my favorite challenges is the Runway Inspired Challenge. For this challenge they picked this gorgeous dress by Carolina Herrera. What a dream of a dress! And what better stamps to use than one of my favorite little stamp sets from Hero Arts called box of dots. It came out in 2003 - long before I started stamping - I probably snatched it up on one of those stamp sales.....
This way I can also link up this card with the A blog named Hero GOLDEN OLDIE! challenge - how sweet!



Current Challenge

I stamped the dots randomly onto white card stock. Then I repeated the same on vellum and superimposed the two papers and attached them with vellum glue. The sentiment (Inkadinkadoo - Garden Flower) is stamped onto the paper, to give it a softer look. A thin silver thread on top - finito!





Before I go  tonight I wanted to thank everybody for all  the sweet comments that were left on my blog. I hope you enjoy this entry as well - good night!

Das mit dem Pergamentpapier ist eine tolle Idee und widerspiegelt genau den durchsichtigen Stoff des Kleides! Sehr clever gemacht!!

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
