STAMPlorations December challenge

Just what you were waiting for - the new monthly challenge is starting today  at STAMPlorations!

This is recap of last years challenges and you can choose any past challenge - sketch or monthly theme.
Of course I had to make another Christmas card, using the Vignette: Christmas Block.

I used a silver metallic paper and dropped alcohol inks on it. Waited until it was dry and then stamped with Staz-on ink the sentiment on it. Popped it up with foam tape and added some silver string behind the panel. 

I used sketch #19:

Here is another picture of my card - it was a little tricky to photograph, because of the metallic paper. But it look soooooo cool in real life - wish I could show it to you...

Our challenge ends December 31; the winner will be announced January 6, 2015.

Prize: Winner receives 2 stamp sets (3" by 5") if she used STAMPlorations stamps in her entry; if not, she receives 1 stamp set. She also gets to be the guest designer for the February 2015 Challenge

Our guest designer this month is Laura Jane from  After Hours Ink and Flowers. She made a stunning card for our challenge - you gotta see that - I have been admiring it on the DT blog now for quite a while..... And as always our DT has come up with amazing cards, so hop on over and see for your self!

I am also linking my card with Stempelkueche - Untypische Weihnachtskarte = atypical Christmas Card

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

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
