STAMPlorations Monthly Challenge 15

Hello my friends, 

the New Year has started and we have an exciting new challenge for you, here at STAMPlorations! the theme is:

What do you think of that? Don't we always use inks when we are stamping - there is no other that got me thinking to do something different. and here is my take on it:

For this card I played with alcohol INKS, have ing them drip down on glossy card stock (by Ranger). The ink kind of seeps into the paper giving you those fuzzy margins (not happy about this, but nothing I can do about it....) - I wanted clean margins. Guess I have to hunt for different paper....but regardless I loved the way this turned out. 

Added some black strips on the side and the wonderful sentiment is by STAMPlorations -Subway Art Builders: Create. The pink twine of the side does not look quite as pink in real life - it is closer to the alcohol ink color...

For my second card I used  VIGNETTE: Eat Drink Be MerryBloom Sketches: Sunflower ArtsySentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year, stamped over splats of neon colors.

The challenge ends January 31, the winner will be announced February 2.

and now for the prizes: the

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
