STAMPlorations October Challenge

Hi, its time for the new monthly challenge at STAMPlorations!
We want you to use your stamps and embossing - both heat embossing or dry embossing is just fine. I used both in my card......




I used a strip of colored paper and stamped those fun shapes from the VIGNETTE: Retro Mod Shapes on it with Versamark and heat embossed it. I then sponged the strip with slightly darker distress inks, to bring out those shapes. The banner is from the same set and the sentiment is from Bloom Sketches.
I dry embossed the back panel with a Sizzix embossing folder.

I just love those rainbow colors.

Und schon wieder ist eine Superkartevon deinem Basteltisch gehüpft!!!
Ich lerne daraus: ich muss öfter mal mit dem klaren Embossing-Pulver arbeiten. Das sieht bei dir soooo klasse aus.
Jetzt fahre ich erst mal nach Griechenland, dann bin ich wieder bei eurer Challenge dabei, versprochen!!!

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.

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
