CASEploration at STAMPloration #5

Hi Everyone,
this is my second post already for today - for the House of Cards post scroll down or click HERE

come and CASE with us here at STAMPlorations!

Our guest designer for this month is going to be Virginia Lu from Virginia! Virginia is amazingly creative and creates stunning cards. I am so happy CASEing this card of hers - a stunning beauty! In case you don't know Virginia (almost impossible to not know her....) - go and pay her a visit - its well worth it!

So here is my CASE of Virginia's wonderful work of art:

My supplies:

Blossom Overture 
vellum, WOW gold embossing powder, Washi tape, die cut sequins left over from another project, gold string

on your wedding day

Isn't it AMAZING? The vellum gives it such a different quality, almost like porcelain. 

We invite you to CASE with us and link it up to the CASEplorations gallery, which will be open for a whole month. Everyone is welcome to play using whatever supplies you have on hand. And oh yes, we will randomly draw one winner to win a prize, as well as highlight the best CASEs.
Sounds like FUN, right?

Linking up with:

Snippets Playground - use a snippet (houndstooth and Kraft paper)
The Artistic Stamper - summer - Roses for me are the quintessential summer flowers 
Amusing Challenges - Anything Goes
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Royal - lots of gold on my card, something Royals possess in abundance

Your case of Virginia's card is GORGEOUS!! Love the gold embossed flowers, so lovely!!
MaryH said…
Super CASE of the inspiration...I am so loving the gold embossing that shows so beautifully against the vivid colors of your flowers. The orange tones of the central roses are so complimentary to the blue-purple shades of the other flowers...brilliant blaze of glory there. Also loved the top treatment...very modern paired with the roses. Well done! TFS

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
