TAWS #45


Over at TAWS they have this amazing inspiration photo -




 I was mulling over what to make for a couple of days and finally go to finish my card:



I recently ordered a whole bunch of stamp sets - couldn't resist the discount and got this adorable castle as a freebie! TAWS has the best deals out there - they are so generous!




The sentiment is a combo from two sets - Jibber Jabber and Enchanted. I stamped it with Staz-on onto that cool gold covered paper. This paper was an amazing deal I got from Michaels - $4 for a 24 sheets of different metallic papers - it was one of their Christmas paper pads. It came in so handy for this challenge! I am such a bargain shopper....

Of course I am also linking this up with the Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday
and the Snippets Playground - the castle is from left over card stock

This is such a fun card. I would have had trouble in using this digi castle, but you have aced it so well. It's wonderful with that scrumptious gold textured paper. Lucky you at getting such a great buy. Guarantee you, it wouldn't happen at our local Mike's. They just don't keep stocked up. Well, I did get some Christmas stamps after the holidays, but while I was away. Loved your card. TFS & Hugs

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
