Two Cards

Hi Everyone,

I have two cards today, trying to play in some challenges, one of which is soon going to end.

My first card I made for The Ton - gotta play in their first challenge! their theme is celebrate and yes they sure have a good reason to celebrate - they just had their anniversary and with all those gorgeous stamps they are selling they are going to be around for a very long time!

I used those wonderful peony dies - I just love them! They cut the glitter paper so well. I have tried cutting glitter paper before with other dies (won't mention the company) but it did not really work for me. Those cut like butter! I added the sentiment (also from The Ton) to a strip of black glitter paper and heat embossed it. added two blue gems.


I recently bought that cute Avery Elle set with the tree in the car (because I need more Christmas stamps...) and it has been waiting to get inked up! I colored it with watercolor markers  and fuzzy cut it. The background is dry embossed and the snowdrifts are by STAMPlorations. And wait - the sentiment is By Ellen Hutson, of course - gotta combine those two companies!

I am also linking up the first card with:

The Paper Players - black, white and one more color
CAS on Sunday - black, white and one more color
Curtain Call - see inspiration picture

For your blog

I am also linking up the second card with:

WOW! that peony die is gorgeous and I love the beautiful blue glitter paper you chose. Stunning layout. That cute little red car sure looks like it is struggling in all that snow. We are struggling with heat waive conditions here in Oz phew!

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
