The Paper Players

The Paper Players have a somewhat tricky color combination this week in my humble opinion..... I concentrated on the blue and gold and kept the cantaloupe for the enamel dots....



I used the STAMPlorations set Trendy Feathers  - the sentiment is from the same set and the swirl and splot are from Papertrey Happy Trails. I masked the blue feather, before I stamped it a second time in gold. The gold is Delicata ink - I just love this ink. It so pretty in real life, the picture does not do  it justice.....

Here is the inspiration photo:

Cornelia, I think you rocked the challenge. I often do the same thing as you did, take the one color that isn't working for me and introduce it as a small element. I love the feathers and the boarder of blue. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

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
