The Challenge

Hi Everyone,

seriously did you think I could bypass that stunning inspiration photo from The Challenge???
No way!!!


Just took me a while to think how to convert the image into a card.
Today I figured it out. Took that fun die cut from Poppy Stamps, did some sponging and inlaid die cutting. I could not settle on a sentiment, so I left it blank, for future use.



Here is the photo:

You did not think, that I would throw out the negative die cuts and those little pieces, did you? No, of course I made a second card with it:


Here I added a little THANKS in the corner, its from CASual Fridays.

Happy Stamping!

Fabulous take on the challenge - I love the CAS design and the bright colours. I like leaving cards blank too, you never know when one might come in handy! Xx

So I thought that this challenge you will definitely not let go of :-) These colors are after your the hallmarks! I'm glad to see your unusual interpretation of the images. I was wondering how did the mixing of colors in a mixed area, but as I had read post to the end everything became clear :-) Thank you for the inspiration.
hugs,
BozenA

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
