Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies August Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a card for the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge!

You may remember that card that I made with the alcohol ink background. Well I had a lot of those butterfly cut-outs. I decided to save them and turn them into a card. Not a good idea I have to say in retrospect...would have been so much easier to just ink up some card stock, cut it with the die and then glue it on to the card. But somehow I managed. Will NOT do it again that way, but with the help of Press 'n Seal anything is possible!

Added some circles, sequins and the sentiment, which I put on envelope liner paper. The stamps I used are by Happy Little Stampers (Mix Mash)

As the challenge says - ANYTHING is possible, just use your dies! 

So come on and play along - that's what you can win:

Linking up with:
Seize the Birthday - anything birthday, no topping for me
Cut it up - summertime memories (butterflies always remind me of summer )
Snippets Playground - use a snippet (only snippets on this card.....)

Well worth the extra effort and hassle as this is such a eye catching and fabulous card. You made me chuckle about doing it an easier way next time x I have been known to do it the harder way too!!! Vibrant colours which I love and that die is really special too x

Gorgeous way to use up your leftovers. It's such a happy, colorful card any recipient will love it. Thank goodness for Press & Seal, I think it's a lifesaver when you have lots of teeny, tiny bits, though, even with it, it's a pain in the butt.

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
