Smashed Congrats

Hi Everyone,

I recently won two wonderful stamp sets from Right at Home Stamps and I finally found some time to make a card with one of the sets.

I made that card for my daughter, who just got accepted into a graduate program in one of the best Universities in Munich, Germany. It was a long time dream of her to spend some time in Germany either working or now studying. She has put so much effort into achieving this and I am so happy it finally worked out for her!

I am also happy I am managing to play along with Right at Home - they are celebrating their one year birthday and have a linky party going on right now - perhaps you want to join in as well? Happy Birthday Right at Home!!!

So I took this cute alphabet banner set and stamped the letters in an orangey yellow. Cut them out an strung them With Bakers twine. Took my ink daubers and smashed them onto my card stock. Added sequins.

Happy Stamping!

Congratulations to your wonderful daughter! What an achievement! I know living in a foreign country is not easy (trust me, it's been 20 years for me but still hard!) but with great support from family, she will do great!!!

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
