Shades of Grey and Spotlight on Bold florals

I discovered a new challenge blog - I think its called My SCRAP-RU - its a Russian blog (don't understand a work of Russian...) and the DT is amazing! Their challenge is 50 Shades of Grey. I did not read the book - I only read the reviews on amazon and that was enough for me, but the challenge certainly appeals to me, so I HAD to play!

I used one of my new Patti Parrish stencils by iStencil - its called Pac Man infinity - alone the name makes you wanna buy it, LOL!

and since I was in a silly mood I gave it two googly eyes. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

And then I thought I can just use one of those Pac Man columns and added those tiny hearts.

And as luck will have it - 
Less is More is also having a fitting challenge I am going to link up with - its predominantly Black!

And as usual for a Tuesday - I have something else for you - my STAMPlorations Spotlight post:

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
