Rainbow Stripes

Hi Everyone,

a quick card made for Less is More - the theme is one layer stripes. Couldn't miss that....

Thankfully I visited Coni's blog to be reminded, that Mr. Linky is about to close.....So up in my craft room I went and pulled out the Impression Obsession striped background stamp, heat embossed it in white and sponged a rainbow over it. That in itself was a bit bland, so I stamped the Ellen Hutson rainbow and stars over it. The sentiment is from the same set.

Love how you've made the rainbow going down the stripes rather than across ... so clever and effective ... what a delicious, whimsical card! I'll have that Cyndi Lauper song in my head all day ... thank you! Hugs, Anita :)

**GASP** You did this in no time at all. I bow to your expertise, imagination and skill. Such a fabulous card and so quickly. Using Ellen's stamp set over those rainbow stripes is just plain brilliant. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

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.

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?
