Going Grey

Hi Everyone,

I am going Grey for Sunday Stamps - could not resist their inspiration picture - see below. And I also wanted to play with this weeks  Addicted to CAS chevron challenge. And I have the perfect stamp for it, I think. The Line upon Line stamp from The Alley Way Stamps. As you all can guess - they made that one for me ;) - cool and graphic - just my thing! 

I heat embossed it in clear and die some ombre sponging with Black Soot distress ink. The sentiment is also from TAWS  - all about YOU. Added seam binding. The arrow is from my die cut scrap pile. I could not resist to add the tiny neon pink strip - a little snippet lying around on my craft table. It might disqualify me from the Sunday Stamp challenge, but I could not resist. This card need a teeny tiny bit of color....

The sequin is actually pink as well, but looks purple in the picture. Hope you like it and hopefully I will not get disqualified...

Happy Stamping!

I can see why you couldn't resist the inspiration pic. If I could have gone grey as well as your card did, I wouldn't have minded as much. Enough of that. Blown away with what you achieved here. It's a perfect CAS card and that hint of pick sets it off beautifully. "LOVE THIS CARD!", she shouted, enthusiastically.
Cornelia, you always amaze me! This is just fabulous! And oh, that pop of pink! LOVE!!!!!! Thank you for joining us at Sunday Stamps! XX

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
