STAMPlorations CASEplorations January

Hi Everyone,

come and CASE with us here at STAMPlorations!

Our guest designer for this month is going to be the amazingly creative Laura Bassen from Doublestick Heaven, who made such a wonderful card for our January release last year, that we decided to get her back and CASE her! how fun is that?

Here is my CASE of Laura's card:

My supplies:

Here is Laura's card:

So you see I basically reversed what Laura did - I colored my background with distress inks and then smeared white embossing paste over the stencil. Added the sentiment  with foam tape, some gold string and tiny sequins.

Laura made another beauty and our amazing DT has quite some inspiration to offer! Go and check it out!

So you want to play along? Case Laura's card  (this is a change from the prior rules) and link it up HERE - you have the whole month to join in! And of course - there are prizes to win!

Linking up with:
A Place to Start - first creation of 2016

Starting off 2016 with a bang, I see. Amazing color and the reverse stencilling is so effective. This is one awesome CASE. I'd say, you nailed it. Kudos.

Thanks for entering the challenge at A Place To Start. You are a woman of your word! :D)

Your CASE is fabulous, Cornelia! It is always challenging to CASE a project and find imaginative ways to let your own creativity shine through, while maintaining an essence of the original design. I think you have done a masterful job of both! Your technique is flawless! This is a WOW project!

Our challenge this week at A Place To Start is: Case This Card. Would love to see your interpretation.

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

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
