Happy Birthday Darnell!

The wonderful Darnell from djcardkreations is celebrating her birthday today! 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY you sweetheart! I wish you many more. I love seeing your new creations and your blogposts - they are a treat to read! You have inspired my at so many levels - thank you!
I am sure everyone knows Darnell - if not you better head over to her wonderful blog.....

Darnell, this is for you:


I hope you like it!



I got inspired by this weeks "Masking with die cuts" over at Make it Mondays. The super talented Erin Lincoln is showing us how to do this expertly. Its a great video to watch! So I went to "work" on this card. I diecut post it notes for masking, sponged around them and then stamped in the flowers, deliberately leaviing an off center white border around the stamps. the happy is die cut from a paint chip. All supplies are by Papertrey. Added some tiny white dots and some sprinkles of Mr. Huey.

There is a linky Party going on over at Ardyths blog Maskerade in honor fo Darnells birthday - you may want to join in!  And Bev is hosting a mega party for Darnell over at her blog Happy Dance - go over, say Hi and join in the fun!

Of course I have to link this up with another challenge...
Inkspirational - blue with white or cream

Also edited to add this card to the Wonderful Words Challenge over at Moxie Fab
and to Virginia's View challenge #5 - Die Cut

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
