Spring is all about Renewal

Just share a winter-themed card and a revamped, springy card.  - That is the theme for the Penny Black Blog challenge - posted today and the deadline is today - no time to think or mull this over...... I decided to to CASE this card I made last December

and turn it into a spring card:

Its pretty quick and easy. I masked the sentiment strip, stamped over with the Penny Black Delicate Florals stamp, colored it with Copics and chalk ink and sponged just a tad with Adirondack lettuce ink. the sentiment is one of those $ stamps from Michaels. And since I had applied some Stickels on my winter card I did the same here:

I am also linking this up with the Anything goes challenge at Word Art Wednesday and the Simon Says A Bit O" Green challenge

Update: This card was featured on the Penny Black blog today - I am so happy about that!

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
