STAMPlorations CASEplorations April

Hi Everyone,

come and CASE with us here at STAMPlorations!

Our guest designer for this month is going to be the one and only Donna Mikasa. I am sure you all know her blog Three Umbrellas and if you don't - go and visit, its a real treat!

You see my CASE is pretty close. Took that pretty rose  from the set Blossom Overture, stamped it 5 times and heat embossed it in white. Water colored it. Added black splatters and a little striped PP at the bottom. The sentiment is also heat embossed in white.


Our amazing DT has made quite some amazing inspiration cards! Go and check it out!

So you want to play along? Case Donna'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!

And don't forget - there is a sale going on at STAMPlorations!

CORNELIA! Remember me?! After the blur that was March, followed by two weeks of Spring Break (only totally fabulous!), I've once again fallen in commenting (your gallery has been seen and much loved!). Catching up now! I am in AWE of your translation of Donna's card...the rainbow roses are gorgeous! I have this set and it needs some major attention; you've definitely inspired me to bring it out...

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
