Addicted to Stamps and More #126

Its challenge time at ATSM!
And its Everybody's favorite theme- Amything Goes!


I go the idea for this card from the amazingly talented Laura Bassen, which has made a video demonstrating the technique over at Papertrey's Make it Monday. Its a worthwhile video to watch and its short....Its easy to do, but a bit time consuming, as you have to make several die-cuts and glue them together. But the result is great  -I love it!


Materials: all die cuts from Papertrey - the silver stars are the leftovers from the Papertrey snowflakes, the little trees you get from the happy sentiment - its the inside of the  letter "Y" turned upside down :)
the other sentiments are by STAMPlorations (Bloom Sketches: Daisy 2Bloom Sketches: Sunflower Artsy)

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
