Cure for the Monday Blues, Curtain Call and Hello to all my New Members!

 It has been a while since my last new member welcome and I have now 5 new members who joined my blog! You make me happy! Thank you so much for joining and a BIG thank you also to my long term members who are still with me!

Welcome my new followers in the order of joining:

Kate from Just Kate
Klaudiya Ray from Handmade by Kaudiya
Carla - sorry, could not find a link, but will happily add one....

And here is your welcome picture:

I discovered this on a recent visit in New York City - its called Seed 54 and is by Haresh Lalvani. Its fascinating to look at. If you are interested you can also watch this youtube video

And if you have time, you may visit my "newbies" and say hello - they have wonderfully creative blogs, full of  amazing inspiration!

 And now back to card making:
I finally managed to  make a card for the Cure for the Monday Blues - fabulous inspiration picture this week! And as luck will have it Curtain Call also has a similar picture, but its anything goes - so one card for two challenges!

I bought that filmstrip die from Poppy  dies a while ago and I immediately thought of it when I saw the inspiration picture. I added those cute Pandas from Mama Elephant Pandamonium, which I fuzzy cut. All the other stamps are from the same set as well.

Added some glossy accents to the hearts and lanterns and liquid enamel to the Panda eyes.
I hope you like it!

I am also adding this card to the Snippets Playground - add a snippet - this card is snippets only...

Hi Cornelia, Been MIA from here for a while, but I did give a shoutout today on your fab light box idea. This is such a cute card, and love the way you've used the filmstrip. I would not have had a clue (got a TH die that is a NBUS for the same reason). Love the bright blue background and your peeking teddies. Delightful. Great to see this in the Playground. TFS &Hugs

This could not be a better take on the inspiration photo! Using the filmstrip die for the shelves was genius - definitely a match made in Heaven with those adorable pandas and pops of colour!! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!

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
