Clean and Simple Day 2

I am trying to keep up with everything.....My Clean and simple Class, some challenges, life.... - what is better as to combine some of those things? Paper smooches has this beautiful inspiration picture for their new challenge. Orange is one of my favorite colors, how can I not play?

Day 2 of the Clean and Simple class has this pretty card in it by Debby Hughes, which I would like to show you, but can't - its class property. Anyhow she reminded us that we can use our dies to emboss paper and that's how this card came to be:

And lastly this card fits the KIS challenge #6 - Dry embossing.

Thank you all for looking at my blog and leaving such uplifting comments. I enjoy them tremendously! I wish you a very nice and pleasant weekend!

Materials:  Memory Box Die - Chloe Stem, stamp: Hampton Art - Botanical, sentiment - Paper smooches - Christmas sampler. The little dots next to the sentiment are made with Stickles and Perfect Pearls.

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.

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
