Addicted to Stamps Challenge #108

Hi , 

its time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! For the next two weeks we like to see your holiday cards - any holiday for that matter, it does not need to be Christmas.



But I felt like playing around with my favorite Christmas stamp set from STAMPlorations - its called Holiday Artsy. I heat embossed it in different shades of green and then sponged around it and added some splatters. 
Here you can see it a bit better. I also added some Stickles for sparkle...


The sentiment I cut out and mounted it on chipboard. 

We have a wonderful sponsor for this challenge - its




The winner will get 3 digis!

I am also linking this card with  Wow embossing powders challenge - the theme is Monochrome.
and with Simon Says Wednesday challenge - make it sparkle - added Stickles to the stars

Just to let you know - I am on vacation now for the next two weeks and I won't be able to comment. But I still will enjoy reading yours and I sure will catch up with you once I'll be back home again.

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
