Cutplorations March Challenge

Hi Everyone

its challenge time at CUTplorations again!
This time the inspiration photo gave me a not my thing I must say. Those dresses - I would not even wear them as a nightgown.... And then I made the wrong card, forgot to use a CUTplorations die... so I had to come up with something else...but I am thrilled with the result - I hope you are too and don't get discouraged in case you don't like the picture either - you can turn it into something you truly love!

Here's the inspiration photo:
image source: Stylecaster

I went with the hideous dress on the left, as you can see. Made myself a background with my cheapo acrylic colors from Michaels and added the negative upper case alphabet die cut (a left over from a previous card) with foam tape. Filled in the HI - also left overs and added the wonderful in black for more uuhmpf.

I hope you play along this month - there are prizes, of course. A random winner can pick any 2 of the word/phrase dies that you the DT used in this challenge.

You got all those glorious colors in the final the use of that negative diecut. The inspiration photo doesn't inspire me much, either. Not a floral and floating fabric kind of female myself. (Enough F's for you?). But I really think you took it in the right direction.

You might have not liked the dress...struggling to myself but I love your card. Great how you popped in the word Hi and the black wonderful sentiment down the side x

Haha - so you're not a floral print person, huh? Well your take on the inspiration photo is so bright and fun! Thanks for playing along at Fusion.
Totally amazing graphic design, Cornelia! Thank you for joining us at Paper Players!

Well, you took something you didn't care for, Cornelia, and turned it into a cool, graphic and fun card! Have to admit to laughing out loud at your descriptions ... those frocks would not be on my list of must-buys either! Hugs, Anita :)

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
