House of Cards January Challenge

Hi everyone,

House of Cards is having a new challenge to start 2015 right with a gorgeous inspiration photo for you!

glittered (blues)

Alternatively if you don't like the colors you may just use glitter, or you can combine them as I did:

I did inlaid die-cuts and stamped the sentiment on it. Since it did not stamp well on the glitter paper I heat embossed it in glittery black. The speech bubble is also heat embossed - in silver and mounted with foam tape.

Materials: Papertrey Die, Stamplorations - Sentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year,  Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings

Now THAT'S a use for the PTI die that I really like! This is such a cool New Year's card, Cornelia, and I love the colors! It would work for a birthday card, too, wouldn't it? I have that die and have used it once I think, so I appreciate this idea!! Thank you so much for joining in my NBUS Challenge #3!! I wish you all the best in the new year!! Hugs, Darnell

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
