Casual Friday with Snippets

It has been ages that I played in the CASual Friday challenge - time to get back into it! I made this card "on commission" and there were very specific requirements about the colors and the scripture in front. It was kind of difficult...I thought the colors are Halloweenish and the scripture text does not really match. So I took a deep breath and approached it like I would any challenge and I actually really like the result of it.
 
 
 
I used a Sizzix Embossing Folder. The stars are cut from glitter paper with Simon Says dies. I printed the scripture text on my printer and went around the sides with blue ink to make it stand out better. Some silver thread to bring it all together.

As you can see below I made a whole bunch of them - but the one for the challenge has only
8 stars....
 
 
 
 I am also entering those cards into the Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything goes
and the Snippets playground - use a snippet

Love this fun, bright, sparkly clean design!
I love the stars Cornelia! The cards turned out great given the odd requests -- I could totally see this as a non-Christmas card -- maybe a You did it! type card.

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
