Guest Designer for Cupcake Inspirations #358

Hi Everyone,

I have a surprise for you today - I am your Cupcake Inspirations Surprise Sweetie!!!
I am sure you know this delightful challenge - they have the sweetest inspiration photos! And its no different for this challenge.

The sponsor for the challenge is Create a Smile - a German stamp company, which has fabulous sets. I actually bought a few a while ago and then never used them, tsk, tsk, tsk... But now I had a real reason to pull them out! The background I made with Brushos, the bird and balloons are colored with Copics. Some Washi tape and the heat embossed sentiment. I mounted the bird and balloons with foam tape. Added an enamel dot.

Here is the sweet Cupcake Inspiration photo:

On this photo you see that one of the Washi tapes has silver stripes, but it looks grey from head on. But the silver adds a nice touch.

Time Out - celebration with optional die or fuzzy cutting 
(did the latter for my birthday card, which I think should qualify for celebration )

Happy Stamping!

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
