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:


Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die.


Card for Maddy:

You may know already about Maddywho 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 card drive is going on to help her lift her spirits. I participated in the flickr Hero Arts scramble yesterday and Heidi had the idea to send her cards to Maddy. Such a good idea - she'll get mine, too:

Simon Says has this card drive, where you can link up your card.

Materials: Starburst Lace stamp heat embossed in different colors, sentiment: Hero Arts Sending Smiles Messages

Die erste Karte in grün/schwarz, mit den klaren Linien gefällt mir prima, obwohl ich gar kein Grün Fan bin!
Die leuchtenden Farben der zweiten Karte werden Maddy bestimmt gefallen und es ist eine wunderbare Geste, ihr diese Karte zu senden!

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.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
