Cute Monster Card

I really splurged with all those recent sales going on lately and treated myself among some other purchases to some new stamps from Your Next Stamp. They have some really cute stamp sets and I had to have their Monster birthday set.....and it arrived just in time to get a card in for their current challenge. I went with the sketch (see below), but there is also a color challenge. I just could not see myself making a monster in pink, powder blue, grey and green..... besides that I need yet another birthday card for a little boy.

I colored that cute little monster with pencils, fuzzy cut it and adhered it with foam tape. Her is another view of this card. The background paper is rainbow paper from Germany. Sadly you can't buy this in the US. 

I am also linking my card with Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday
and with Simon Says Wednesday challenge - something new (brand new stamp set)

See ya tomorrow and happy stamping!

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
