Make it Monday with Colour Q

Hi Everybody,

just a quick post today.....

I made a card for this weeks Make it Monday over at Papertrey, where talented Laurie Willison shows us how to use Cover Plate dies to create stencils to be used with embossing paste. I used my favorite new embossing plate from Papertrey to make this card and the colors I took from this weeks
Colour Q challenge. 

I made myself a stencil form the cover plate, smeared embossing paste over it and let it dry. I then inked it with distress inks. The die cut sentiment is Papertrey as well, the happy is by MFT as are the die cut sequins. 

Hope you like it!
I am also adding this card to Simon Says Wednesday challenge - add a little texture

Your card is so beautiful! Those colors are gorgeous the way you blended them using your fantastic stencils!

Oh, meine Güte, ist diese Karte schön! Die Farben mit dem Gold - einfach wunderbar!
Hast du den Stencil aus Plastik oder Papier geschnitten? Ich habe bei meiner lila Valentinskarte das Herz aus Plastik von einer Verpackung versucht zu schneiden und es ging nicht so gut. Weiss nicht, ob mein Cuttlebug dafür nicht geeignet ist, oder das Plastik nix war. Jedenfalls musst ich alles mit dem Exacto nachschneiden, was furchtbar hart war!

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
