Make It Monday #151 and Curtain call

Betsy Feldman shows us a cool technique on this weeks Make It Monday. She calls it "Drop Shadow Die Cuts". Its simple, yet effective. I had to try it.....



Looks cool right? All die cuts and stamps are Papertrey, except the "happy" - that's from Paper Smooches. 

I am also playing in the Curtain call challenge this week. The delicious inspiration photo is below.




Guess what the centers of my flowers are.........


......you got it! 
Mini Marshmallows


I am also linking this card with:
Creative Friday -  Kraft
Snippets Playground  - everything die cut is made with snippets

And just to show you the snow we had 2 days ago - now imagine that with an additional layer of perhaps 6 inches of heavy, wet snow followed by icy rain.......


Stay warm!

Love your card. Marshmallows?? :)

The snow and ice just keep on coming, don't they?? Winter is not letting up here in Ohio, either. More snow on the way this weekend. Stay warm and safe!

Das sieht aber richtig gut aus bei euch. Hier ist alles braun und grau. so überhaupt nicht winterlich. Schade. Hoffentlich kommt das nicht erst im März oder gar April!!!! Da möchte ich dann doch schon Frühling haben. Zum Glück kann das niemand beeinflussen.

That drop shadow technique looks cool! Have to try that! And marshmallows??? Too funny!
We got about 10in of glittery, powdery snow! Fortunately no icy rain so far!
Stay safe!

Very cute card! I think we have a break from the snow for a few days.....until mid-week! My poor bush branches too are so heavy from the snow and ice.

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
