STAMPlorations CASEplorations March

Hi Everyone,

come and CASE with us here at STAMPlorations!

Our guest designer for this month is going to be the one and only Betsy Feldman. I am sure you all know her from Papertrey and from her blog Paper Scissors Superheroes

Here is my CASE of Betsy's card:

Looking at this side by side I should have taken a more orangey yellow....oh well, funny that your mind thinks you have it right, but reality proves it wrong :(

I just love her card - the beautiful color combination and the soft, airy feeling - that's why I choose butterflies for my card. I also wasn't sure if water coloring would work with that mask, so I decided to play it safe and sponged.

My supplies:

I just love her card - the beautiful color combination and the soft, airy feeling - that's why I choose butterflies for my card. I also wasn't sure if water coloring would work with that stencil, so I decided to play it safe and sponged.

Anita 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 Betsy'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!

I think you've nailed the colours and great idea about the soft and airy feel of Betsy's card being represented with the butterflies, fabulous job. Thank you so much for the inspiration.

Zitronenfalter gibt es im Spätfrühling. Ich hätte gerne erst mal etwas Frühling und nie mehr trübes Wetter. Das geht mir dermaßen auf den Gest, das kann sich keiner vorstellen. Deine Karte bringt etwas Licht in diese (fast) Finsternis.
Liebe Grüße

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
