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.

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
