My Sweet Petunia and Crackerbox/So Suzy Blog Hop

Hi Everone,
I am delighted to be on the MISTI and Crackerblox&So Suzy Stamps blog hop!
Perhaps you came from the talented Jeanne Streiff

After all I really treasure my MISTI and rarely ever make a card without it!
I was curious about the creative corners and I am going to show you haw to use them.

Quoting from Simon Says Stamps:
These magnetic corners and positioning pieces combine to provide even more possibilities for precision stamping. Create angled designs with diagonal positions for perfectly aligned stamping, card layers, tape or embellishments. Also use as internal bumpers and additional corners for the MISTI. Magnetic corners are used to create off the edge designs, as well as opportunities for precisely layered, spotlighted or telescoped designs with no measuring. The two corners and two triangles also work in the mini MISTI. The L-ruler only works with the regular size.

And here is my card:

I put the magnetic bumper into the right hand corner and layed down the triangle. Lined up my

Made a mask with a post it note and masked the first hat,

repositioned my stamp and stamped again.

Repeated this.

Trimmed a piece of patterned paper, although in the end I decided on the black damask paper, but forgot to take a picture.....marked with pencil, where I cut the pape.

Colored the hats with Inktense pencils.

Took the Halloween sentiment stamp and cut it apart. Lined it up 

  and stamped the top half in black and the bottom half in Versamak ink and heat embossed it in white.

Added black splatters.

Oh my Cornelia, these witches hats are awesome! Love that you strayed from the traditional black witches hat to bring in these more vibrant colours and lined them up to split the card face for the sentiments. Triple spooky!

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
