TAWS #44 and some more Christmas cards

I am back into the swing of things with another card I made yesterday for the TAWS challenge. I used the freebies that are available on the TAWS website. Here is the inspiration photo:


And that's my card:




You gotta love this pink Christmas tree! Anyhow I loved it so much - I put three of them on my card, colored with Copics. If you mag up the inspiration photo you'll see that there is a white painted brick wall, which I mimicked with the embossing folder - Lifestyle Crafts. The ornaments and two of the trees are elevated with foam dots and I used Twine from the Twinery.

I am also linking this card with the CHNC challenge extra- anything Christmas
and the regular CHNC challenge

I also want to share with you some more Christmas cards my blogging friends surprised me with:


This lovely card is from Diane - she is from Alabama - such a cool card! she digitally creates all her images - amazing!


My friend Monika send this to me - we met last summer in Munich. Isn't it the perfect Christmas card?


I love this glittery tree that Mel sewed onto the card - how creative! I have to keep this idea stored for future use....

Thanks to all of you - so much fun to get a home made card! They are adorning my mantle - it looks so pretty!

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
