Big Thanks

Hi Everyone,

a quick post today with a CAS card or better two, although they were not quite as simple as they look....

I started out masking off a strip on the card and sponging in pink. Added the hippo in navy blue, but to my dismay it looks almost black. Added the sentiment in grey.

Then I thought I give it another go with a lighter blue ink - same steps, except that this ink alos does not look navy. I did shift the hippo up a bit, so that I could fir two complete sentiments below it, but then I was unhappy with how it looked and added another sentiment on top.

I actually like both versions, although the first one a tad better.

My stamp supplies are: 
sentiment: CASual Fridays
hippo: Rubber Soul (ancient wood stamp)

Linking up with:

CASual Fridays - pink, navy, white
Muse - see Kay Millers fabulous card below 
(grey background stamping and colorful focal point)
CASE this Sketch - see below

Happy Stamping!

Been MIA with a flu but I've been watching your work on IG. This one made me laugh out loud...that hippo is a delight black, navy or blue. And that sentiment...I need it im my life. I may be all your ideas on this one.

Mir gefällt die Karte mit dem blauen Hippe besser, sie sieht nicht so "traurig" aus, wobei traurig nicht richtig ist. ich mag halt knallige Farben!!!

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
