STAMPlorations Inspiration Project #18

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day again at STAMPlorations

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


Sketched: Tulips           Bloom Sketches: Daisy 1

I used teh sketched Tulips, stamped it twice, colored the bottom panel with Brushos and a little extra help from watercolors, tore a center strip out of the top panel and glued both together. Added the heat embossed sentiment and mounted it with foam tape.

So, if you are up for it - CASE my card or any other card and link it up HERE over at STAMPlorations. The InLinkz gallery  will be open until the 5th of June - gives you plenty of time! One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries to win a $15 gift certificate or their choice of any 2 ARTplorations stencils.

Also linking up with:
Uniko Studio - Flowers
Fab 'n' Funky - Flora and Fauna
Sisterhood of Crafters - Mother's Day with a flower
Stampotique #196 - something old, something new (old stamp - new way to use it)
Traumfabrik - Secret garden
Time out challenge - grunge (torn paper)

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
