Muse #88

Hi Everyone,

it has been a while that I have played at the Muse challenge - just not enough time.....I would love to play in every challenge, but that is impossible. But my talented friend Vicki Dutcher had made such a great card (you'll see it below) - I had to play along....


I bought those beautiful sequin dies from MFT a while ago and now they have their debut - I thought they are just perfect for this. The largest "sequin" I made with a punch. I used gold metallic paper.


The sentiment is by STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders: Celebrate 
, heat embossed on vellum. Added some fine gold thread for extra interest.
Here is Vicki's beauty:



Perhaps it stretching it too much, but I also thought it would fir this weeks Freshly Made Sketches sketch - I just made the central panel larger....

Dramatic, eyecatching and so fabulous, Cornelia ... your cascade of sequins is gorgeous! I'm thinking you also used the teeny tiny centre circles ... such attention to detail ... they're the perfect touch! Anita :)

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
