New Members Welcome and Moxie Fab challenge

Its greet my new members time! 
Two lovely ladies have joined my blog - I want to welcome in the order of joining:

Sonja K from The Art of Stamping
Vicki from Stamp Smiles

You probably know them already, since both have an active blog and make fabulous cards! I am happy you joined me and as customary I picked a welcome picture for you. this is made by Tom Otterness, who makes fun  bronze statues, some of which can be found in New York City. This is a detail from one of his works (called Amorphophallus Titanum) in the Bronx Botanic Garden. I just love those little creatures in that gigantic plant!




I hope you like it, too!

Over at Moxie Fab the WCMD challenge got extended  - I am so happy about this, since I wanted to play - that inspiration picture is so up my alley.....geometric design - what could be better???



This is the picture:



I made my card using the Papertrey Harlequin embossing plate, which I partially ran through my Big Shot. Then I took pain chips in various colors and also ran them through the big shot. cutting those little diamonds, which I then pieced in. The wood background paper I got at this years Scrapbook Expo in NJ. 



The sentiment is by My Favorite Things. I think it fits the style of the card quite well. 

This is my last blog post that I'll write.... for the next two weeks I'll be in Israel. So forgive me, if I won't be able to comment - I'll try to catch up with you once I'll be back home.

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
