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:

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

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?
