Dynamic Duos and LIM

I got my mail today and boy there were a lot of surprises in there - about some I'll tell you later, since I don't have a lot of time right now, but I also got some more stamping supplies - yeahhh - as if I would need more ......
I had to try some of them right away - using my new STAMPlorations set 

SUBWAY ART BUILDERS: Create (this is a sneak preview of part of the set - the set will be released in May) and the VIGNETTE: Artful Flutters



The circle lines I created with a brand new stencil from Memory Box - Radio Waves - I sponged that - it was a bit tricky, because the stencil is so delicate....


The butterflies I made with a scrap piece of acetate - a leftover form some packaging, which I colored with alcohol inks and stamped the butterflies with Staz On ink. All the ink is on the backside of the butterflies to protect the colors. I added some Stickles to the bodies of the butterflies - love the sparkle... the curvy line is from Papertrey Happy Trails


Challenges:


Annis Herausforderung - use a stencil - there is a give away at Annis' challenge - go and play!

Papierelle - use a "2" - there is a blog candy to win - just found out about it.....Go over and check it out!

Snippets Playground - use a snippet -  butterflies

Do you know that Dynamic Duos is closing? I am so sad to see them go - I loved their color combinations. It was a great challenge.

Sorry that I haven't been commenting but my computer time in NYC was very limited! We had a great time the only down side was that I couldn't meet you... Glad to hear that you had fun in Colorado!

Wowsers, Cornelia, Love that stencil. Your colors made it pop. I hear you on the delicacy of some of the MB stencils (although I don't have this one yet). A couple I do have, must be handled gently or tiny joins could tear. I'm especially taken with these beautiful acetate butterflies. Great colors to light up that neon radio wave pattern. TFS & Hugs.

Rosmarie said…

Liebe Grüße Rosi
This is so striking! I love the blue & green together. So pretty!

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
