Day of the Month Card Club - National Dandelion Day

Hi Everyone,

It's "National Dandelion Day" day, which is celebrated on April 5th. 
Many people consider dandelions weeds, but they are actually edible and are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and D. They are delicious in soups and salads. They also bloom early, giving bees and insects well needed nourishment after the long winter. 

The technique for this card I learned from Heindesign. It is quite simple. Tear some post it notes and mask a square. Take acrylic paint and paint stripes onto the masked area and then spread the paint with a sponge a bit so you can still see the original stripes, but not so much as to smear all the paint together. Let it dry. Dab white acrylic paint onto your stamp and stamp. Clean off the stamp immediately after use.

The sentiment is by STAMPlorations.

Now I hope you will have time to 

I am counting on you! You have until the end of the month (4/31) to do so.

This is a voting challenge - the winner will be determined by vote. Everybody can vote, even if you didn't play along. Voting starts on the first of the following month - June first. 
The 3 participants with the most votes will win. 
The winners will be showcased on the 5th of each month and the new challenge will start each month on the seventh.
And to make it more fun and appealing it would be great if you could comment on at least 3 other participants - perhaps you'll find some new friends that way. 

There is always a reason to celebrate!

Your new technique sounds so easy but you make everything sound easy, don't you. Clearly, it creates a beautiful & eye-catching backdrop for your dandelions. It really is a WOW! card.

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....)

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
