Play Date Cafe #174

Here is the card I made for the Playdate cafe challenge. Somehow the bluish green comes out as blue on the picture - in real life it is a little more green, but anyhow, I think its close enough for the challenge. I cut lots of 1/4 inch strips, pasted them together and cut them again diagonally into 1 inch strips. Re-taped everything together and adhered it to the white card base. Somewhat tedious process. I prefer usually quicker things, but i still like how the card looks like. The sentiment is from  Hero Arts  - Leaf Print, the flower is Memory Box Chloe Stem die.

I got sooo many lovely comments on my last blog post - thank you all! I really appreciate your comments and your time coming to my blog. 


I wanted to share some more pictures from my Texas trip. I went to the San Antonio Botanic Garden. It is very pretty. Lot of flowers were in bloom and it was a lovely warm day - not like here right now, where we got another prediction of snow, brrrr.......

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Die Arbeit hat sich gelohnt denn deine Karte sieht wirklich toll aus!
Mal was anderes, diese versetzten Streifen finde ich sehr Wirkungsvoll!

This is stunning - what a labor of love cutting all those strips! The result is so beautiful, though. Love your Botanical Garden pictures as well - my husband and I love to head there for photos. So glad you could join us for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge!

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
