STAMPlorations Monthly Challenge #8

This is my second post today. Please scroll down for the Simply Create Too challenge post.

Its a new monthly challenge at STAMPlorations! The theme is:

I used three STAMPlorations sets for this card: Subway Art Builders: CreateDistressed Floral SwirlsVignette Retro Mod Shapes

I inked up the little square from my all time favorite Retro Mod set, stamped it and then swooshed it side ways to get those smears. I just love how this came out! And those Subway Art builder sentiment fits perfectly - right? Nothing like padding yourself on your own shoulder.......Added the swirl stamp and some sequins.

Now hop on over to our blog and get inspired by our fabulously talented guest designer Kim from Art Keeps Me Sane and our wonderfully creative DT!

And here is our prize:
2 stamp sets of choice is STAMPlorations stamps were used, if not then one stamp set.

The challenge ends June 30; the winner will be announced July 3.

I hope to see you there! Thanks for visiting!

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
