A-musing Challenge

I found a new challenge! 


I am such a challenge junkie......Now usually I don't really like sketch challenges, but this one appealed to me. I also liked the way the challenge is shown - just hand drawn on a piece of paper. The challenge is by A Muse Studio.

 I thought I have several stamps from them, but then I could only find one - this one - its called open Chrysanthemum and its old (but good!) - but perhaps its not the same company - I don't know it says A Muse Artstamps on it.

Amusing Challenges

The half circle is made with a Lifestyle Crafts nesting die. I heat embossed it and colored it with Copics. The sentiment is from  Hero Arts - Leaf Print Cl395 and I used patterned paper for the background - a rarity for me, but was inspired by the patterned paper class, that I unfortunately missed....

I also linked up this card with the The Die Cut Diva's challenge - Anything Green.

Oh my, I LOVE this!! The colors are fantastic on your flower, and with the plaid. The plaid is just the right size to balance the flowers too. Well done!

(I generally avoid the sketch challenges too, but am forcing myself to embrace them now. Good for growth!)

Da bin ich ganz mit Kelly einverstanden! Die Karos auf dem Plaid gleichen sich schön mit dem Halbkreis und den Blumen aus! Schöne Farben auch!

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
