Stencil Fun and another card

Hi,

I recently discovered this new stencil company called i stencil and had to order a bunch. This is the first card I made with my loot....


I just love it! I actually made it for the Just us Girls challenge, but then totally forgot to write up the blog post and link it....oh well. I do like the colors and of course that stencil, its so up my alley!


The die cut is by Memory Box -  Poppy die, the sentiment is CASual Fridays and Simon Says stamps.

So I am just linking it up with CAS on Sunday - Stencil it and with Seize the Birthday - just going with the birthday theme.


My second card is for Color Throwdown  - I not often succeed in making a card for a weekly challenge, but this time it worked for me....


I used a TAWS set for this - its called Tropic Topic, stamped it and fuzzy cut it. Puddled some turqoise at the bottom. The leaves are clear embossed on the green strip.  I added the sentiment - its from Your Next Stamp.


I  used the sketch from Less is More and I am also linking this card with TAWS - they are having their birthday celebration this month!

     


See you tomorrow - if we don't drown in snow - but New York is going to be hit harder than NJ and I just love it anyhow!

And don't forget to come back later today - its going to be the first day of the STAMPlorations spotlight week!

Happy Stamping!

Die grüne Karte ist ja solo leuchtend, da braucht man fast eine Sonnenbrille, um sie anzusehen. Ich finde sie toll!!!
Auch deine zweite Karte ich mal wieder DER hit geworden.
Liebe Grüße, Flo

Übrigens: ich kann dir ein Päckchen (aus meinem Blog) schicken, allerdings muss ich dann die "goldene Kugel" entweder entfernen, was dir bestimmt nicht gefallen wird
oder sie dermaßen zusammendrücken (damit alles in einen Umschlag passt), dass sie ungenießbar wird - was dir wiederum auch nicht gefallen kann *hihi* ;-)))

Wow, Wow, and more Wow!
These are fantastic.
That first one is totally shocking and make me seasick ... in a good way.
Love it and the pop of yellow.
Equally gorgeous and striking is the flamingo one and a great take on the sketch.
Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.

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
