Altered playing cards...

I am playing along with Claudines art corner card challenge.. Each week Claudine posts on her blog a technique to do 2 playing cards.. I am pretty much following along with what Claudine is doing, so I am not going to repeat it all and go into to much detail here. Claudine has step by step pictures and details on her blog of how she does her cards so pop on over and see her great pictured tutorial instuctions.

Week 9 
I used a stamp from Teesha Moore for the one on the left.. The stamp on the right is from Lacy Sunshine digi stamps. I just blew up the frog part of the stamp. 

 Week 10
With week 10 I had a bit of a mix up.. I did the ones above in about November last year and it's only last weekend, yes 6 months later that I thought. Oh I better finish this challenge. The posts are all still there to catch up and I did enjoy doing these cards a lot..  So I started doing them again got half way through this one and though wait think I have done this one.. Oh well think I like the second lot better than the first lot anyway. Dylusion stamps more of some Teesha Moore collage I used on these ones.

Week 11
Last year I was lucky enough to get a grab bag of mixed stamps from Teesha Moore. These stamped images where 2 of the stamps that I received. the one that says imagine that is the same stamp, stamped twice and I just turned one of them to make him look 2 eyed.  I like the other one on the planet well I thought it kind of looked like a planet.
 Week 12
This was for Thanksgiving it was a simple card week. Covered the card with cardstock and the purple is a printer copy of my art work. Cut out a butterfly and collaged that and the paper background on with Helmar Decoupage craft paste.
 Week 13
Bees I just gotta love bees.. I had these bees in my stash of papers for a while.. The big one was a magazine image that I cut out. I could not tell you what die the honeycomb is I cut that out at a friends one day to see what it was like. Just had the pieces in my stash. I used the DecoArt Media crackle glaze on the bird image inside the honeycomb.

Week 14 
Well this shows how far behind I am when I am doing Christmas cards at Easter.. These where both die cuts that I have had for ages, given to me by a friend. I don't have any snow embossing folders, thought this burst one looked ok though. Stampin'up stamp for the Merry Christmas. 

Have a great day 
Sandy :)
