Holiday Wreaths

 Hi Everyone,

I took some time to play in the current Time Out challenge, since Anita kept tempting me with her beautiful inspiration cards.....
Here is the result:

And this is the inspiration photo:

You see I just recreated that door wreath. 
My supplies: 
wreath die and sequins dies by My Favorite Things
Happy die by Winnie & Walter
holiday sentiment by Neat&Tangled.

Did some ombre sponging on the HAPPY and covered it with glossy accents.

And then I had that beautiful shimmer paper left over from my wreath die cuts. I cut it so that I can reuse the past it would just go into a bin (and never reused....) but I am changing that - made two more cards....

The Christmas Card challenge - see picture below

The bow in the card below is also by MFT. The happy above also got some Delicata gold ink mixed in - gives it a wonderful shimmer.

Yes, Anita is a nag, isn't she (kidding)? She talked me into it, as well, but you, definitely, are going to win with this number. Good grief, it's gorgeous, as are the other two you put together. Amazing that you were able to use your scraps to such a wonderful affect. WOW!
Your wreath card is wonderful! Great way to use buttons! This would make a great entry over at Emerald Creek Dares Challenge! :)

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!

Or you can see the same thing on my photo tutorial. With mirror
