House of Cards February Challenge

Hi, Everybody! 

 It's time for another new challenge at House of Cards! We have a fabulous inspiration picture and we cannot wait to see what you create with it!

For the next two weeks we're asking for 


summer tones

Isn't this picture gorgeous - I am sure it will inspire you as well!

Here is what I came up with:

I used the Memory Box Woodland Branch die, which I doulbled up to make it a bit more substantial.  The blossoms I made with the Starburst punch from McGill., sponged them and added some Stickles. The sentimant is Papertrey Think Big Favorites. I took some Tim Holtz distress stains and added a bit extra color. I hope you like it and play with us at House of Cards!

Such a pretty card. Love how you turned the starbursts into flowers!

I like that you used that branch as a flower stem. I usually see it only as a branch with things hanging from it or birds sitting on it which I like a lot but it's nice to see it used differently! And those blossoms are totally cool!

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
