STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #13

This is my third post today - please scroll down for the House of Cards blog hop and DT call and for the Dream Valley challenge

We have a fabulous new sketch for you her at STAMPlorations! For the next two weeks, until June 13 you can play with us using this sketch:

I used the Cluster stamping technique for this card in addition to some masking. 

I started with heat embossing the THANKS in clear

I then masked first the vertical line and then the horizontal line and sponged away from the post it note. 

I then added randomly those little flowers in different colors.

I wiped off the color from the heat embossed thank you with a damp cloth and added some pearls. 

Materials: All STAMPlorations stamps: VIGNETTE-eclectic floralsSentiment Builders Thank YouHoliday Artsy. pearls

You may already know Monika our fabulous Guest Designer. And of course you have to see what our awesome DT has created, to spark your mojo!

And if that is not enough - there are prizes on offer for our sketch challenges - and if you enter both sketch challenges for June and the monthly challenge (starts Friday) you may just win these fabulous Tim Holtz stencils!

Again the challenge is open until June 13. The winner will be announced June 15.

I am adding this card to Less is More - use more than one stamp 
The colors I took from the inspiration photo at Time out Challenges

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
