Make my Monday

Make My Monday has this beautiful inspiration photo, to entice us to play in their challenge. You guessed it - I could not resist. Anything on black always just pops - I love that.


I got this beautiful Memory Box die from my blogging friend Sylvie in Gibraltar as part of a give-away I was lucky to win. So that's my first time using it. I colored it with Copics. The sentiment I white embossed - it is from Inkadinkadoo. The butterflies is a Martha Stewart punch.



The card is very different, from what I usually make - I hope you like it!
I linked this card also up with the Simon Says Anything goes challenge.

And in case you don't - perhaps you'll like my cave pictures from my Texas trip. The cave is called "Cave Without A Name. In a naming contest (1940) a young boy suggested that the cave "was too beautiful to have a name". He won the contest and received a 250 dollar cash prize, which was a huge amount of money back then.



The cave was well worth a visit - stunningly beautiful formations.

Auch bei dieser Karte zeigts du wieder viel Geschmack! Ich finde nämlich, dass so eine dunkle Karte ger nicht leicht zu machen ist. Mit diesen zarten, filigranen Stanzteilen hast du ihr ein sehr legeres Aussehen verliehen! Alle Achtung!!
Ich persönlich, hätte mich da sehr schwer getan!

So, jetzt wünsche ich dir und deiner Familie noch ein schönes Osterfest und hoffe dass dein Päckchen bald ankommt! Es ist schon seit 2 Wochen auf der Reise, aber soviel ich gehört habe, kann das bis zu 4-5 Wochen dauern... und ich dachte mir, du bekommst es noch vor Ostern :-(

Ganz liebe Grüße
Rosi

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
