AEI♥U Challenge – Paper Piecing

Hi, I am playing in the AEI♥U Challenge - the theme is Paper Piecing.

I pulled out one of my favorite Avery Elle sets - Rounded Diamonds and stamped on patterned paper, cutting out the same stamp at different sizes - the largest petals are the entire stamp. I just love the patterns you can create with this stamp! The sentiment is also by Avery Elle - All Squared Up

I mounted the outer parts of the petals with foam tape, gluing the inner parts to the card stock. That gives it some outward dimension, although you can not see this in the picture. Punched a little circle from the red paper and added it for balance.
I like how this turned out!

Challenge 20

Happy stamping my friends!


Was für eine tolle Idee, das Set schlummert auch in meinem Keller, dass muss wohl dringend entstaubt werden.

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
