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

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
