Birthday Bash for Shirley

Today is Shirley Bampton's birthday and her fabulous creative friend Maria from Rieslingmama is hosting a linky party for her. Of course I wanted to join in. After all I am a BIG admirer of Shirley and we are on the STAMPlorations team together. In case you don't know, Shirley started to design her own stamps recently and I of course had to use one of hers for her card!

So,

Happy Birthday Shirley!

I hope you have a blast and have many more, 'cause I always love to see what you create! You are one awesome card maker!



I wish we could eat that cake together, but unfortunately normally the Atlantic is between us....but right now I am in Israel ...... so not really any closer....

Here is another look of my card. I used the CityGirl stamp from STAMPlorations (desigend by Shirley), masked it and sponged around in yellow. Added the envelope pattern background stamp from Hero Arts and the sentiment. Cut two thin stripes in grey and yellow and added enamel dots.

Not quite sure how I missed this AWESOME card - especially being #1. I adore how you shadowed the image and left it b&W - Very cool effect that I might just have to copy :)

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
