Mondrian Valentine

I thought I give the usual Valentine's card a little modern twist - this is for art lovers.......

For the longest time I wanted to make a Mondrian card and the Keep it simple challenge finally made me do it. The theme is square. I used that cute little TAWS set called PIECES to help me out with the card:

The rest of the lines I drew in. The colored squares I stamped on card stock and cut them out. 

Lastly I cut my square "Mondrian" and mounted it on black paper to give it a nice defined edge. How would you like to have your own "Mondrian"? Just make one yourself......

I am also linking this card with the Time Out challenge - Love and/or Friendship - its a new challenge blog and is right now looking for a DT. They have some cool twists on their challenges - go over and check it out 

Addicted to CAS - LOVE - as expressed in the sentiment

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.

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
