Muse #156

Hi Everyone,

I finally found time to play with the Muse challenge this week - I could not resist Michele's fabulous inspiration card...


......using Laura Bassen's camouflaging die cut technique - the outcome is guaranteed to please! I have done that before, so I didn't have to watch the video and its quite simple anyhow. You mask and sponge - I guess you could also use PP and them you die cut (keep those little pieces). Since I like to streamline things I die cut the thanks in fun foam, glued the card stock on it and fiddled it in.

I love how Michele used the stencil to give it more umpfh! I did not quite sponge enough for that, so I simple added some clear embossed gems.



You can see this better on the magnified picture and added some Wink of Stella and sequins. all my supplies are by Winnie & Walter.

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
