Masculine Christmas Card

  Hi Everyone,

I am playing along with the masculine challenge provided by 52 CCT. I had no idea there is such a thing as a masculine Christmas card......Got me thinking.....

 So I figured blue is masculine enough and Christmas Craft Creations has as theme blue and silver - so that's how I arrived at my colors. I used an Impression Obsession background and used my favorite shifty reindeer die as adornment. Agonized over the sentiment and in the end decided its good enough without one. Added some silver thread and silver Washi tape at the bottom.
I heat embossed the reindeer twice with silver embossing powder to get good thick coating.


I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting. 
Happy Stamping!

I love the sneaky reindeer and trees against the dark blue! It is a GREAT masculine card and it caught my eye right away in the gallery! I also think that sometimes a card is better off without a sentiment if the scene is complete without one! Thank you for sharing it with us at Christmas Craft Creations!

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
