Addicted to Stamps and More #140

Hi Everyone,

Its challenge time at ATSM! For the next two weeks we have a gorgeous photo inspiration for you:


Here is my card:



I used this antiqued mirror designer paper, that I once got dirt cheap at Michaels and it needs to be used one of those days....smeared embossing paste on it, using that fun ARTPlorations Stencil - Shutters and let it dry. The rose is by STAMPlorations from the set Blossom Overture. I water colored it and fuzzy cut it and mounted it on foam tape. the sentiment is also by STAMPlorations from the new set Fond Expressions

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is

The winner will get 7 digi stamps

Here is another view of my card - its a little tricky to photograph, because of the silver surface.


Come on and play with us and check out all the fabulous card by our wonderful DT!

Linking up with 
Craft Stamper - Color
Snippets Playground - use a snippet  - the rose and the sentiment strip

Ha, das Papier habe ich auch (Geschenk von einer Freundin)! Ich habe es auch noch nie benützt... Wäre wahrscheinlich nie auf die Idee gekommen, darauf zu stencillen - danke für die Idee!

Thought you had found out how to create the distress mirror effect but it was the opposite way you used the stencil.
What can I say Cornelia love the rose too. :)

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it.
