Hi Everyone,

I finally had time to try out the faux mother of pearl technique featured over at Happy Little Stampers. I can tell you - it is fantastic! Super easy and the outcome is guaranteed to please!

Although I am not sure my card is CAS enough...but I like it!!! The butterflies are by HLS, the die cut, stitched die and sentiment are by Simon Says Stamps.
On this photo you can see the wonderful shimmer better:

Those colours and the shine from the technique is fabulous. So very pretty and looks great with the butterflies.

Ooooh. The mother of pearl technique really glows on your card. Of course, your color choices are have such an eye for design. Think it is CAS enough. White space can be any color.

Hello Cornelia, Happy Easter! Your card is so beautiful. I love the deep blue background and technique of faux Mother of Pearl, which makes the background look like marble. Butterflies make the card simply come to life.

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
