Birthday Giraffe

Hi Everyone,

I have to sneak in a card in between our STAMPloration blog hop.......I just made to play in some challenges. That cute giraffe was nudging me for the last few days to get inked up - I finally gave in......

Added Washi tape in the background and embossed a scrap piece of card stock with a Sizzix Embossing Folder. The giraffe is by YNS - I colored it with Copics and fuzzy cut it. The sentiment and inlaid triangle die cut is also by YNS. I mounted the Kraft panel with foam tape.

Die ist ja knuffelig, wie sie so schön keck schaut!!
Frag' sie doch mal, ob sie mit seiner Majestät spielen möchte, aber vorsichtig, sie sollte seine Majestät nicht von oben herab anschauen ..*kaputtlach*.
Herzlichst Gundi

Don't think I've ever seen a happier giraffe. Looks like he's up to something, doesn't he? Anyhoo, using the dry embossed panel really made him POP! And all the other little special embellishments are awesome. He's a charmer and a winner in my book.

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
