Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies in May

Hi Everyone,

guess what???
I am on the Happy Little Stampers DT for Anything Goes with Dies - a monthly challenge ( I am sure you are all familiar with the HLS challenges) run by Kylie, the sweet and talented owner of those fabulous HLS stamps and dies.
This is the first challenge and as already said its anything goes :) 
- but gotta use your dies!


So I challenged myself doing some inlaid die cutting with A Papertrey set that I got myself as a Christmas present and so far has been collecting dust....


I also did some dry embossing using a Papertrey embossing plate to give the card some texture. On the photo below you see I used shimmer card stock. The tiny sentiment is also by Papertrey


So come and play along - you can win a $15 gift certificate to get yourself some lovely HLS stamps!

Yay you! Well done for being on the DT of the HLS challenge. Love your card - I'm not a huge one for using dies, but I think I probably should more often. I love the inlaid technique on this card - perfect for a Christmas parcel. xx

Way to enter multiple challenges...wish I could do that. Anyway, can we say that not only fits the bill but the inlay is meticulously done. Adding that diagonal background is brilliant...really makes the eye focus on the present.

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
