Holiday Card for BIC Challenge

Over at TAWS the challenge is almost over and I had to make a card - its one of my favorite challenges. Too bad its now only once a months....

I went with the glittery leaves inspiration photo:




I used my new TAWS stamp set Tri Me. The sentiment is from the set Holiday Sparkels. I heat embossed everything with gold, silver and copper embossing powder. Added a little bell on a gold string and underlayed my embossed panel with copper metallic paper. 



Its a different kind of Holiday card, but I like the modern, clean look of it. 
I am also linking it with Stempelkueche - atypical Christmas card
Taheera's Cure for the Monday Blues challenge - I think my card fits the chandelier in the photo

I also wanted to share two  cards with you that I recently got:




The butterfly card is from my friend Maria from rieslingmama and the tree card is from my friend Susanne from Keep in Touch. So thoughtful of you to send me a card - I really appreciated that. Thank you so much, it's nice to know people think of me in times of great sadness

By the way - there is still the Black Friday sale going on at STAMPlorations:


You may want to take advantage of it!

Die erste Karte glitzert und glänzt ja wie dolle!!! Da ist man total geblendet - aber schön ist sie trotzdem oder erst gerade deshalb.
Liebe Grüße,

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
