Stampotique March Challenge

Hi Everyone,

we at Stampotique have a new challenge, it is in its second week - the theme is "Mail Art". 

I used the Funky Town stamp for my background. I stamped half of the stamp on the left and the other half on the right of the envelope. The center house I drew by hand. The cute dogs are from the Dog Cube. As usual I colored it all with Inktense pencils. Added  a Finetec gold ball onto the top of my hand drawn house. Added white gel pen to the windows and the dogs.
The address is made up, of course. Waiting for some dog lover to mail out this card....

Stampotique Challenges run every TWO weeks......
Please remember you can use any stamps for our challenge and you are allowed to have 2 entries per challenge. From all the current months entries we will draw 2 random winners who will each win a 30.00 gift certificate on the first week of the following month.

Have fun with 
Hope to see you at the challenge!

What a fun idea for a challenge!! Your envelope would be too darn fabulous to open, Cornelia! I think it would be framed unopened as art!! Another wonderful unique take on the HOME challenge for the March HLS Cas challenge! Thanks for playing again!! Hugs, Darnell

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
