Little Tangles and Male Room

I don't make a lot of masculine cards and I am not sure I succeeded with this one, but I made it for a male friend of mine - he is much younger than me, so I think its okay. I combined the sketch challenge from The Male Room with this week's 
Little Tangles challenge. 

The numbers are by Papertrey. I die cut them and underlayed them with colored paper that I also sponged a bit. The stamps are by Neat and Tangled - the set is called Everyday Circles. I love that set!

Added some black splatters. I popped up the sentiment circle with foam tape to give it some dimension.

Quick and easy and I really like it!
I am also linking this card with Seize the Birthday - anything birthday
and The Snippets Playground - use a snippet - my happy sentiment
CASology - Splatter

This is stunning, Cornelia ... such great colours and perfect precision! I think it'd be brilliant for a guy or a girl! It'd go well at CASology's Splatter challenge! Anita :)
Oh wow!.
Are you crazy? You absolutely nailed this 'guy' card.
It's amazing.

Love the numbers, splats and the stamps ... actually, what's not to like :) Thanks for your comment on the rocker cards and I've note your suggestion to put a tutorial together - I will do that just as soon as I have a bit of time for it so keep a lookout :) Elizabeth xx

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

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
