CASEing Christmas

Hi Everyone,

do you know that CASEing Christmas is now a monthly challenge???  I love those. And it also pairs up quite well with this month Memory Box challenge - Cool thoughts for warm days.
Time to get my gorgeous Memory Box dies to good use.

I also wanted to do that Perfect pearl technique again that Jennifer McGuire showed us and I wanted to do a twist on that. So I inked up my entire card with distress inks - I used three different ones, although the Perfect pearls really almost overpower the color gradient. You can see it a little bit. 

Here is that amazing CASE card by the talented Steph from One Crafty Chica:

Such an amazing card!!!!

I die cut the Frostyville Border from Memory Box using shimmer paper. I also dry embossed the die on the opposite side of the card. Added the sentiment - it is an ancient one by Magenta stamps. 

And lastly I added a thin strip pf patterned Paper for balance. 

Happy Stamping!

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
