Monday Challenges

Hi Everyone,

no, I am not confused, I know its Wednesday, but I am playing in two challenges that have Monday in their name - Make it Monday from Papertrey and The Cure for the Monday Blues from Taheera. 

I am sure Taheera picked that inspiration picture just for me ;) - bright colors, that's just my thing! And then Betsy Veldman over at make it Monday came up with this darling idea of making confetti garlands and I had to combine the challenges.....


All the flowers are from the Papertrey set Beautiful Blooms II. I heat embossed them. The sentiment is also Papertrey - Think Big Favorites. Added a mix of homemade and bought sequins and stringed them up.



I LOVE this card! So cheerful!

I am also linking it with Flashback Friday - Got flowers
The Snippets Playground - use a snippet (sequins)

        Pixies Crafty Workshop

I have another blog post coming up today - day 3 of the STAMPlorations stamp release, so stay tuned!

I just love this card. So bright and cheerful and on black. I do love how colour pops when placed on black. It works with quilting too.

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
