Pink and Purple Christmas

Hi Everyone,

now since I am not on so many DT's anymore I actually have time to play in challenges! Need more Christmas cards. 52 CCT has an  old technique for us - I had done it in the past but didn't know it has a name. It's called Josephs Coat.

I used a background stamp from Simon Says Stamps, the sentiment is Hero Arts and the die cuts are by Alexandra Renke.

And here is the winner of my little Christmas give away that I had on my blog recently:

 Big congratulations Rosi - your elf is on its merry way!

Linking up with:
52 CCT - Joseph's Coat technique
Addicted to CAS - pink and purple
Simon Says Monday challenge - something clear (clear embossed those little trees)

This is so the non-traditional colors and those downright, adorable diecuts.

Beautiful card.
Your card is so well designed. I have not done Joseph's Coat in ages. Thanks for the reminder.

Mega schön!!!! Ich habe mich mit der Technik total schwer getan, erst Versuch Nr.3 war einigermaßen brauchbar, obwohl ich alles nach Anleitung gemacht habe.
Naja, was soll's, man mus ja nicht alles können.

A beautiful smart and stylish card. The purple is unusual but gives a fabulous look for this technique. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT

Oh wow! Die sieht super aus und ganz anders als all die anderen Karten - deine Ideen sind immer grandios! Vielen Dank für's Mitspielen bei 52CCT.

I had forgotten about that technique too, Cornelia. It worked beautifully to let that pink and purple shine in your unconventional but so YOU Christmas card. Thanks for sharing it with us at Addicted to CAS.

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
