Annabelle May challenge and New Member Welcome!

My membership has increased again with 5 new members! Wow - this is fantastic! I am so happy all of you joined and I am really happy that who ever joined me in the past has stuck it out with me. Thank you to all of you. You are very much appreciated! Let me welcome in the order of joining:

They all have wonderful blogs - go over and say hi and get inspired - and tell them I sent you ;)

And for all my new member I have my traditional welcome picture:

I could not resist to pick another photo from my recent visit to the Corning Museum in upstate New York. This wonderful glass bowl is by Jay Musler, a contemporary American glass artist. I think its amazing - I hope you like it!

But now back to card making.....

 I have been quite busy lately with work, so not much time for stamping.... but I wanted to make a card for this month Annabelle sketch challenge for quite a while now and I finally succeeded...

I only have one of their beautiful stamp sets, so here we go again - its called Garden Silhouettes and thankfully there are a lot of stamps on this set. I heat embossed the flower spray in clear and sponged the background. I then took the same stamp and stamped it in the same ink color again. Added some Paper Candi, colored with Copics.


I am also linking this card with the Simon Says Wednesday challenge - anything goes

Thank you so much for your welcome and the glassed image is stunning...would make a great backdrop scene with a digi image in front....your gorgeous card has the beautiful colours of peace, blue and white...when my mum died nearly three years ago every thing I bought was blue, never liked it before, and to be told it is a sign of peace and communication with your loved no wonder I love this creation.xx

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
