Inky Bird

Hi Everyone,

Lost Coast Designs has a cool challenge going on right now - splash of neon. That's just up my alley! And such a good excuse to pull out my LCD stamps!

I made the background with a Prima stencil, that has triangles in multiple sizes sponging with my Hero Art neon inks. The cool bird is by Lost Coast Design - put a googly eye on him, to make him less scary (mainly did that for Carol Mayne - I did not want to scare her with my card.... ). then sentiment is from Dylusions - I heat embossed it and cut it apart.

Added a strip of PP on the side.

Happy Stamping!

Bwahahahahhaha...that googly eye is the perfect addition to "non-scare-ify" your bird! He's quite fabulous - and that's a mighty high compliment coming from the Queen of Bird Terror! Neon triangles = perfect backdrop for your feathered friend! Awesome!
(ps. Thanks for the Happy Mother's Day wishes, however, I'll have to trade them in for Happy Aunty Day Wishes..only a niece and nephew for me. No kiddos of my own. Then again, I do have my husband who, at times, is one big kid...*grin* Happy Mom's Day to you; hope you're spoiled and pampered to the nth degree!)

I do like the googly eye! Does make him a little less threatening :) Love the neon triangles behind him - really adds that bit of colour. Happy Mother's Day to you! Xx
This is it! You've made my day Cornelia.

As I was reading your post, Tom walked by and said: hey that looks like the duck from the Dawn commercial!" He is so astute - and goofy. I for one think this guy is not scary at all, and just as cute, and clever as can be!!! LOve that sentiment!

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
