STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #12

Hi my Friends, this is my second post today, for the House of Cards challenge inspiration please scroll down.
It's time for another sketch challenge at  STAMPlorations. I love this sketch (see below) - it has so many possibilities!

I used using Trendy Feathers, which I heat embossed and fuzzy cut. The sentiment is from the same set. The stitching I did with the PATCHWORK FRENZY: Graphic Squares set. The tilted panel is patterned paper. I sponged some butterscotch Adirondack ink onto the Kraft paper to make it look a tad more interesting. The Paper Candy I colored with Copics. I added some metallic copper colored thread and threaded everyting through an eyelet. 

This time Debbie from Indy's Design is joining us as guest designer - I am so glad she could join us. Debbie has created a really cute card - come on over and have a look! Besides that there are just wonderful cards from our DT to spark your Mojo!

I am also entering this card into the Snippets Playground - use a snippet (feathers)

The challenge ends May 30; the winner will be announced June 1. I hope to see you there! And don't forget to visit my

House of Cards blop post 

Thanks for coming over and have a great day!

I love your card! Your use of the feathers, and the way you embossed them is very striking. Very well cool design. I love the sketchy look of the card. One of the coolest card I've seen using feathers.

I was staring at your white panel and thinking you painted it with gesso or white paint and then distressed it -- then I read that it's patterned paper! Love those embossed feathers and how the paper brads coordinated with it!

Hi Cornelia! Love this card, those feathers are fabulous and such great stamping.

I managed to link you into the Playground (at number 30) - Mr Linky did get a bit stroppy and I had to upload your image to my laptop to get him to co-operate, but got there in the end :)

Hugs, Di 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

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
