Muse Christmas Vision #49

Hi Everyone,

I am back to stimulate you to pull out your Christmas supplies and play with us at the Muse Christmas Vision!

I made a real simple card using paint chips (courtesy of Home Depot...... ;)

Used a triangle die to cut the paint chips. Added the funny face and arm - stamps by YNS (Your Next Stamp). Punched the speech bubble and added the tiny sentiment (Papertrey). I strung some gold thread with sequins and wrapped it around the front tree - needed some ornaments - after all its a Christmas Tree! I mounted it on a wood colored PP with foam tape. Dry embossed the  back panel (Papertrey)

Hope to see you at MCV!

Could you get any more clever?...I think not! What a darling concept...and with paint chips. Good way to recycle and save $$$ at the same time. The card is completely charming. I LOVE IT!!!

Was für eine geniale Idee für den Einsatz von Farbmusterstreifen! Und dein Weihnachtsbaum ist so was von niedlich. So einen hätte ich dieses Jahr auch gerne im Wohnzimmer stehen.

Das ist ja eine süße Weihnachtskarte!!!
Ich bin im Moment etwas sparsam mit dem Basteln, habe mal wieder eine Nähphase.
Liebe Grüße

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
