Non Christmas card with Christmas stamps

Hi Everyone,

here is a challenge just to my liking - and I have thought about this in the past, wishing somebody would offer that as a challenge - make a non Christmas card with Christmas stamps - and here it is - put on by Make the  Day Special Stamp Store! Hurrah!


I used this ancient Hero Arts set - love that one and picked that skinny bare Christmas tree. Stamped a half circle at the top of my card with Versamark and heat embossed it in white. I then masked the wedges and sponged them with distress inks in rainbow colors. 


The sentiment is from the set OWH Year Round sentiments. Also  heat embossed it in white. I die cut the card stock using the stitched square die by Simon Says Stamps, glued it onto fun foam and mounted it onto a white card base. Added the silver embroidery thread and tiny sequins. 


So how do you like that challenge theme? You can also play in this month A2z Scarpbooking Store Challenge - its CAS as a theme - you have to use a Hero Arts stamp. and if you have ANY stamping need you can custom order from the A2z scrapbooking store using Cornelia15 for a 15% discount!

Linking up with:
A Blog named Hero - rainbow colors, see photo below
Snippets Playground - use a snippet - sentiment strip
Just us Girls - color challenge -see below
CAS-ual chic - embossing
and just for the fun of it  with the A2zscrapbooking store July challenge - CAS (does not count, I'm on the DT)

Wow! I really like your creativity on this one. That line tree made a splendid starburst and really striking in the blaze of colors. Liking the little thread swirl that you've added. This is really stunning! TFS & Hugs

Oh what a clever card Cornelia! Brilliant use of the stamp - and I could have sworn your sentiment was done with Dymo tape - what a great idea to pick that typeset and then emboss using white (to be pinched by me for future use!).

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
