Two Cards, Two Challenges

Hi Everyone,

my first card I made for the CASE this Sketch challenge - after an enthusiastic encouragement by Michele Ferguson...


after all I had the perfect sentiment for this one.... and oldie by Stampin' up. Sponged my background and added some Bokeh. The little bells are by Mama Elephant. Added lots of sequins and the little bell on that silver string. 



And since sponging is my favorite technique I will also add this to this months HLS CAS challenge - favorite technique.


The second card I made for CASology, the theme is TOY. The toy is the unicycle - I used to ride one in my former life and my son can ride one, too.


The stamps are ancient, too and is by Stamping Ground, I believe....The word life I just hand wrote in. Colored everything with Copics and added black splatters.

Inkspirational - bah humbug! Anything but Christmas

  


Are you done with your Christmas cards, yet? I think I am..... I have a few more in store, which I have not yet posted, but I think I don't need any more....




Well, no white Christmas here - its rather green....

Happy Stamping!

That ink blending/bokeh on your first card os amazing...boy, are you EVER making up for lost time. I smell a winner. Be prepared. And the second card...how the heck to you ever find a unicycle stamp let alone make card that's so much fun.

Oh, that jingle was such fun! Those crooning reindeer were such a hoot!! Your cards are gorgeous! You are quite the talented girl, aren't you? Uni cycling - for real? That is talent! Love the card in its lovely bright colours, and your handwritten addition to the sentiment is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CASology this week!

Der Stempel der ersten Karte passt wirklich hervorragend!!! Man sollte doch nicht alles, was alt ist, wegwerfen oder verschenken - es kommt immer mal der Moment, wo man diese Sachen gebrauchen kann!!!
toll gemacht: soooo einfach und sooooo wirkungsvoll.

Die zweite Karte hat mir ein Lächeln ins Gesicht gezaubert, was mir heute etwas schwer fällt, weil wir gestern bis 1 Uhr nachts bei einer Weihnachtsfeier waren und ich etwas unausgeschlafen bin.
Auch diese Karte ist wunderbar und aufrichtend!!!
Liebe 4.-Adventsgrüße,
Flo

A unicycle?? Do you think you could still do it?? I think thats brilliant as I've always wanted to give it a go. Your first card has the most beautiful blues, it caught my eye straight away and love the sentiment layout. Your second card is so perfect with the image and sentiment and would never have known you hadn't stamped the 'life'. So fabulous!!!!

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.

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
