STAMPlorations and Time Out Challenge


STAMPlorations is the sponsor for the current Time Out Challenge, which is starting today!
The theme is Valentine's Day with the optional twist of Hearts. 

I sure used quite a few hearts here:

I started with water color paper and made a rough heart with orangy and red Brushos. Waited for it to dry...... In the meantime I took vellum in different shades white - pink, (although you can't really see the gradation in the picture) and die cut it with Lifestyle Craft dies. I then sewed the hearts to the paper. The sentiment is from the brand new Stamplorations set - Sentiment Builders: Love. I LOVE it! Lastly I threaded 4 tiny silver beads onto the loose threads.

STAMPlorations will provide 2 prizes: a $15 gift certificate (randomly chosen from all Time Out entries) and a stencil pack ($10 value; randomly chosen from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog).

You may want to visit the STAMPlorations blog to see the other fabulous cards our DT made for this challenge (and don't forget to leave a comment there....)

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
