HLS CAS challenge

Hi Everyone,

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Ours was very quiet - I still need to rest. However, I thought I should give card making a try :)))

I am so behind with my holiday cards, so what better than go and make some quickies. And stencilling is the way to do it!

I used Wendy Vecchi's gold embossing paste, as well as regular white one for the top star. The sentiment is by Neat&Tangled from a set I recently won. Thank you Neat&Tangled! Added some sequins. 

Little Angel

I used a stitched die from Simon Says Stamps to cut my black panel. mounted it with fun foam.

And the good news - iStencil has a big sale going on  - go and get yourself some goodies!

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
