STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge 16


Hi, here is my second blog post for today - please scroll down for the House of Cards challenge post!
So its time again for the new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations!









The background strip I made with a Tim Holtz stencil - its called dot fade and you can also buy this in the STAMPlorations shop.  The butterflies are from the Vignette: Artful Flutters. I colored watercolor paper with distress inks and then stamped the butterflies onto it. Added a little Wink of Stella. The antennae I made with a thin wire and added Stickles to the ends. The sentiment is from the SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Happy.

And that is the sketch for this fortnight:



Go and visit the STAMPlorations blog to let our wonderful DT inspire you and also have a look at the fabulous card from our very talented Guest Designer Sue!
The challenge ends August 1; the winner will be announced August 5


I am also playing with this card in the Simon Says challenge - spots and dots (dotted background)
I am also linking this up with the July Linky Party for a chance to win a $25.00 gift card in the a2zscrapbooking Store.

I hope to see you there!

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
