Paper Smooches and MFT

Its a sketch challenge at Paper Smooches this week, which I somewhat loosely interpreted. I am really in love with that little gnome from the Paper Smooches - Forest Whimsy set. It just looks like a funky Santa to me and I think I will use it on many of my Christmas cards....

The sentiment is also Paper Smooches (Christmas sampler) - heat embossed in white and I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix Embossing Folder. The Santa is colored with Copics.

I am also linking this card with Addicted to Stamps and More #62 - Make Your Mark and with CHNC - Anything Christmas


The challenge over at My Favorite things is also a sketch challenge:


I recently ordered some supplies from them and now I can play! The stamps and dies I used are all MFT/Die-namics and are form the You Move Me set and the new Thank You set. The paper is by Basic Grey - isn't it made for those stamps?

I am also linking this card up with Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday with (optional) Toppings - my card has the little die cuts as toppings....

Thanks for stepping by!

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
