Orange Flower in Green Foliage

When I saw Beverly's card (here) using the current sketch at CAS Sketches and Colours I fell in love with it! I couldn't help but CASE her card and the only reason I that kept me from using some thread is that I didn't want to downright copy her...

As you can see I was in a tropical kind of mood...

Stamps: leaf for background is an unknown, unmounted stamp
Dies: My Favorite Things (flowers, scalloped rectangle)

I spent a ridiculous amount of time looking for a way to add a sentiment and picking out one that would fit. In the end I decided to leave it like that. Not every card needs a sentiment IMHO...

Geometric Stencil x Three

I recently got this new stencil from Altenew and played around with it one evening trying out different color combos. The amazing thing is that I already made cards out of three of the backgrounds (usually they sit around here for much longer...). April is one of my biggest birthday month and these backgrounds are great for masculine cards (and geometric design loving girls, hehe). I know that they all look similar but I really loved the font of the STAMPlorations birthday die with the geometric pattern. On the last two cards the birthday die is three deep and covered in Glossy Accents.

Stamps: Altenew (Happy), WPlus9 (wishes)
Dies: STAMPlorations (Birthday)

Twofer Card Challenge #4

It is time for a new prompt at the Twofer Card Challenge and this month we would like to see:

For more details and the rules please click here.

I have to admit that I was a bit stumped with this one. My vast collection of stamps and dies is seriously lacking in the pet department. I guess I ended up being inspired by the funny stories my coworker told us about her pet bunny. He had such an distinct personality! Sadly he passed on last year but she just got an adorable little bunny girl and the cute pictures my coworker shows us makes me want to get one, too! So my cards feature the sweet bunny from Uniko:

Stamps: Uniko (bunny, sentiment), My Sentiments Exactly (dot), Stampscapes (birds)
Other: Marco's Paper (cloud paper), Punches (grass, flower)

Stamps: Uniko (bunny, sentiment), Hero Arts (background)
Dies: SSS (hearts)

Sending my Easter card to

Uniko Challenge #46 Color and Optional Twist Easter

Hope to see you in the gallery! I always learn so much from your creative takes on our prompt word!

Be well and keep in touch!
