A2Z Scrapbooking August Challenge

Hi Everyone,

its challenge time at A2Z Scrapbooking!

For this month  we want you to use texture or embossing paste. If you don't own one and don't want to spend the money I have a recipe for you HERE. If you don't own it and want to buy one you can order it from the A2z scrapboking store.

I used gold embossing paste on dark blue card stock, using  Hero Arts stencil Deco Design. Heat embossed the daisies from the set Hello Sunshine onto thick vellum. Stamped the sentiment Year Round Sentiments. The stitched rectangle die is by SSS. Assembled it all and added gold Washi tape.


Here is a close up - you can see the glitz better:

I hope you will get a chance to join our monthly challenge.  Remember - Hero Arts Products are required.  This challenge runs though the end of the month. You have a chance to win a $25 gift card to the a2z Scrapbooking Store.

You can also custom order from the store and the best thing - if you use code Cornelia15 at checkout you receive 15% off your purchase of $25 or more (before tax and shipping) - how do you like that?  And don’t forget that we are on TwitterInstagram and Facebook.  Follow us on these different social media outlets so you won’t miss out on any fun promotions!

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....)

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
