GDT at The Male Room

Hi Everyone,

I am so delighted and proud to be able to be GDT at The Male Room for the next two weeks.
The theme is New Beginnings.

So, I made a New Years card. I got those fabulous pop-up numbers from my sister for Christmas. They are from My Favorite Things. I had to use them right away. Combined them with the New York silhouette die, which is also from MFT. I sponged the background with a variety of inks - mainly distress oxides.

I added black glitter paper under the numbers and a small strip on the side.

I really love how this turned out. I was contemplating adding water splatters, but in the end decided against them. I wanted to keep a clean look.

I hope to see you at The Male Room!

Happy Stamping and Happy New Year to you all!

Time Out Challenge - new beginnings

That's such a stunning sky behind the cool city silhouette, Cornelia ... and I love how those popped up numbers cast a shadow against it. Wonderful sister ... perfect gift choice! Congratulations on your GD spot with The Male Room ... and thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! I'm guessing this isn't in our gallery yet because of the time difference ... will check a little later! Hugs, Anita :)

Congratulations! You've brought a very handsome (translation: stunning!), vibrant card to your GD role! Love that sky-silhouette combination and yes, the pop-up numbers are VERY cool! Excellent gift from your sister!

Holy moley, you've been really busy. This is that sky and those numbers are just perfect. Glad you left off the spatters they'd distract from the constrast of the silhouette skyline and that incredibly gorgeous sky.
Wow! I love that sky for your city scape.

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
