STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #26

Hi Everyone - 

sorry for the late posting, but here is our new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations - don't worry  you'll have two weeks to link up:

Simple and pretty!

Here is the card I made for it:

I used  Trendy Butterflies and Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds to make the side strip, but before I stamped the butterflies I directly applied metallic ink and chalk in to the paper to get abase coloring for the strip. I like the shimmer of it. For the sentiment I went with Bloom Sketches .
Here is a closeup, where you can see that shimmer better:

I also added tiny gems to the antennae.

So, go and visit the STAMPlorations blog - great inspiration there to find and we also have a talented guest designer for this challenge - its Maria from Bulgaria, who shares a delightful card with us.

I won't be part of the challenge team any longer at STAMPlorations, so this is my last card for it, but the good news are that I will be part of the Inspirations design team and I still be be doing bi-monthly Spotlights, so this won't be the end for me!!!!

Hope to see your creations over there!

Wondered how you got that shimmer. Now I wonder what kind of ink you used for the butterflies? Coverage looks good.

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
