Subway Art Christmas Card and Happy Thanksgiving!

At 613 Ave Create the theme is Subway Art - and what better stamp to use than STAMPlorations for that?  I made Christmas card, using the Vignette: Christmas Block, altough STAMPlorations has quite a few subway art stamps, including a beautiful set in the latest release.

I first stamped the sentiment onto a silver metallic paper and heat embossed it. I then dropped alcohol inks on it. I popped up this panel onto another silver metallic paper, using thin foam tape. The background I used the same stamp and stamped it repetitively onto white card stock, although it looks grey in the picture - not sure why....

Here are some more photos with different angles - its kind of tricky to photograph, because of the reflection. 

I am also linking my card with Stempelkueche - Untypische Weihnachtskarte = atypical Christmas Card
and with Uniko Studio - Anything goes and a sketch
Less is More - anything Christmassy, although this is not really a CAS card....
 Simon Says challenge - Anything Goes
Time Out challenge - embossing with the optional twist of sparkle (heat embossed my sentiment)


And let me not forget this - HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of you. I am grateful that you choose to support my blog with all your wonderful comments - they keep me going and brighten my day!

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

You may want to take advantage of it!

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.

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
