So hop on over to STAMPlorations, to see what our fabulous DT has in store for you! We also have the ueber talented Sian as guest designer this months. 


At Less is More the theme is Round and Round - perhaps my card is a bit more than less, but I'm going to link it anyhow...

Its perhaps a stretch, but I am linking this up with Addicted to CAS - the theme is "Wheel" - for me it fits, using all those color wheels. Lets see what the DT thinks....

I am also linking up this card with the current Inkspirational challenge - you have to CASE
Sandie from London Days  - one of their talented DT members. So I snooped around in her flickr account (much easier than finding anything on th eblog) and came up with THIS card, that I wanted to CASE

See the similarity? I just love this card! Its so pretty!

In case you are wondering, how I made my card - I have a little tutorial for you:

My supplies: 

Wiped the colored pice of cardstock with the embossin buddy. Stamped some of the circles with Versamark, sprinkled clear embossing powder on it and heated it with a heat gun.

Sponged around the embossed areas, repeated the process with additional circles, both in the upper and lower part of the paper strip. Make sure your ink is completely dry and use that embossing  buddy!(Sorry for the blurry pictures.....)

Took some of the circles from the Holiday Artsy set and just stamped on the card with the above shown inks. Took a 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch punch and punched out additional circles of colored card stock. I trimmed the paper to 5 1/2 inches in length.

Did another round of emboss resist on the 1 inch circles, added the sentiment and assembled everything with foam tape under the large circles:

I hope you like it!

Doesn't surprise me that emboss resist is up there on the list of faves. It is just so much fun to get messy with ink. And magic too. Love the bold colors, Cornelia.

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
