STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #9

OOoops - published a day early.......well, gives you extra time to prepare....

Hi my Friends - its time for another sketch challenge at STAMPlorations! This is a fun one - you'll love it! We also have a very talented Guest Designer  - Kathy from Stamps at Play!

But first my card:


I used the VIGNETTE: Artful Flutters. I stamped the butterfly on watercolor paper, inked it up with my Kaleidocolor ink pad and spritzed it with water, before I stamped it. I let it dry and then fuzzy cut it, The sentiment is from the same set. 



The strip of newsprint paper is actually also from STAMPlorations - Shery wraps the stamps in it, when she ships them - another little bonus :)


April 7 - Sketch #9
(ends April 18; winner announced April 20)

PRIZE
The sketch challenges are sponsored by our sister shop, All About Scrapping. The winner gets to pick 3 DIGITAL products from the shop -- any combination of printable sheetsPhotoshop templates, and digital paper packs.

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
