STAMPlorations February Inspiration - Punny Cards

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day at STAMPlorations

The DT girls made some beautiful cards to entice you playing with your stamps - STAMPlorations or otherwise..... 

For this inspiration post we want you to pull out your old STAMPlorations stamps. I am using a set that I truly think is under appreciated 

I have used it in the past to create some cute animals (you can see them HERE and HERE) and I promised back then to make some more, but I never got around to do that...until now! I had so much fun, I made a whole series of it:

All you need is a punny sentiment and some googly eyes! Doodle the extremities, etc and voila you have a quick and funny CAS card!


 Semtiments by  Stampin' up (frogs), Michaels (bunny) and Technique Tuesday (crab)

Come on over to STAMPlorations and check out the Inspiration Posts. Perhaps you feel inspired to  CASE my card and link it up to the Inspiration CASE Playground. You don't need to use STAMPlorations stamps to play along; any stamps from any company are welcome, so long as your posts don't solely promote those companies.
The InLinkz gallery will be open until the 5th of the following month.
One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries to win a $15 gift certificate.

I am linking this set with Challenge up your life - one layer card
also adding this set to Flashback Friday - geometrical (those stamps are now a little over 1 year old, I ordered them before I started on the STAMPlorations DT - to have something to work with and in January I was with them for one year, yeahh!)

Cornelia, these are just sooooo innovative! I love the way your mind works!

DAS kann man also auch mit diesen Stempeln machen!!! Auf solch eine Idee muss man erst einmal kommen.
Wunderbar deine Tiere mit ihren großen Augen und den z.T. langen Armen.
LG Flo

These are really so clever, and I never would have thought to make critters out of those shapes. Great with the punny sentiments, too.

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
