Shades of Grey at CASual Fridays

It shades of  grey at CASual Fridays. I like grey. 

I die cut the rectangles with Dienamics dies and sponged the inside twice in the center, the larger rectangle only once to create different shades of grey. I went around the borders with a white pen, to give it more definition. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations - the new MOM subway art builders set. I heat embossed it. Right now you can get all MOM sets in the prerelease sale for 30% off!

Well, that is something to consider, with Mothers Day coming up soon!

The flowers are from the Stamplorations set Eclectic Florals. I colored the inside with chalks and markers and then fuzzy cut them and added little pearls in the center

Other challenges:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes with pearls
CAS on Sunday - Color me pretty
Pan Pastels - Frame it!
Snippets Playground - use a snippet (flowers made from snippets)

I also love grey at the moment! Who would have thought as I am usually a big fan of bright colors... The colorful flowers on the shades of grey look great! I also want to play in this challenge - isn't it great that we have 3 weeks now? It works for me!

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
