Eyelet Birthday Card

Hi, Crafting Friends

I needed a card for my daughters birthday, so what is better than combining a color challenge with something else?
That something else is the eyelet challenge over at Retro Rubber where my friend Susanne is GDT! Of course I had to play!!!!! I used the colors from this weeks Color Throwdown.


The numbers are dangling from gold threads- threaded through eyelets. The birthday die is Papertrey, as are the numbers. The happy is Paper Smooches - Sentiment sampler - my very first Paper Smooches set I bought several years ago....


We had one warm day today - 46 degrees, tomorrow night the predicted low is 1 degree - isn't that crazy???

Happy Stamping!

A fab card, sure your daughter will love it.
Glad we are not alone in the weird temp stakes.After a few days of almost double digits (9'C) we are back into negativity and ice!
Keep safe. :)

Ich denke, da wird sich deine Tochter freuen, eine sooooo schöne Karte zu bekommen.
Noch hebe ich alle gebastelten Karten auf, die ich bekomme/bekommen habe. Mal sehen, was ich damit mache, wenn es zu viele werden.
Da es heute bei uns schneit, kann es bei euch nur wärmer werden.
Liebe Grüße,
Flo

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
