Bubble Wrap

Hi Everyone,

I had to play with bubble wrap as part of Darnell's NBUS challenge! It was always something on my to do list, but I never got around to actually do it... Thankfully Darnell gave me the necessary push!

For both cards I used a NBUS set from Papertrey called Zappy Birthday and of course bubble wrap. For the first card I dripped alcohol ink on bubble wrap and stamped it off and for the second card I waited for it to dry. Pierced all those bubbles to flatten them out and adhered my sentiments/arrow to the plastic. 

I have a third card in the making - not sure, if I get it done before the challenge closes...

So much fun! Never thought to use bubble wrap on my cards, but very clever. I have an entire roll in my classroom, we use it for art projects all time! Adorable.

Oh brother, did you ever ace this bubble wrap challenge. It looks so terrific on your cards. Mine was a complete disaster.

Stamping with bubble wrap?!! How fun! The retro color combo with pop of magenta looks cool on the first card and the second card looks like a work of modern art! Thank you for joining at Seize the Birthday, Cornelia!

You rocked the bubble wrap art, Cornelia! How fun that you always wanted to give it a try! The comic book elements of both your cards work perfectly with the background! I love that you decorated the actual bubble wrap in your second one!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #10 and joining in the optional theme!! Hugs, Darnell

Awesome cards, love what you created with bubble wrap. I've used it to stamp texture on paper but never thought to use the wrap itself.

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
