Stamplorations July Challenge #9

Hello Everybody, its time again for another challenge at

you gonna love it - its STAMPS and GLITTER!

I had to play around with my new STAMPlorations stamp set 
Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments. I stamped the rose on patterned paper and colored it  with pencil. I used square Lifestyle Crafts dies to emboss and cut out he frame. I mounted the cover card stock with foam tape to give more dimension. The sentiment is from the same set. Lastly I added Stickles - you gotta need glitter here.....

Her are some close up shots to show you more detail:

Head over to the blog - we have a fabulous Guest Designer this month - I am sure you all know her  - its the amazingly talented Kimberly Wiener from Wienerhoneymooners. And of course our DT has some wonderful inspiration for you as well!

And her is the fabulous prize for this month:

(Classic Scalloped Border Petites and Tulips)

   The challenge ends July 31, the winner will be announced August 6.

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
