Addicted To Stamps and More

I have exciting news to share with you - I am now part of the Addicted to Stamps and More DT!


It is just wonderful to be part of this fantastic team! 
This weeks challenge is themed "Make your Mark", which I interpreted as using your markers. So I pulled out almost all my Copics for this.


I used a Sizzix embossing folder and then colored in the valleys of the striped pattern. I added the black border on the left - the card needed some definition. The sentiment panel I sewed onto the card base. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations from the Subway Art Builder series - Create. I used the left over thread to string up some sequins. 

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is 


The winner will receive 5 free digis of her choice!

So come on over to the ATSM challenge blog  and get some inspiration from our wonderful DT and we hope you find time to join in the fun!

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
