The Twinery #10

It really took me forever to come up with an idea for the Twinery challenge


I had a couple of them, but only in my head. I did not even try them out. Today I was actually making another card with watercolor paper and the block of paper I have is almost used up, but there are thin stripes, that remain. I detached them from the metal spiral and used them for this card:

I cross-stitched them together with twine - of course....

A heart embellishment and the stamps are from Hero Arts - You and Me.

I like it. It makes a strong statement, I think. It will go into my Valentine's card stash.... Never hurts, to be ahead of the game....

Oh yes, since I used snippets it will also go into the Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground - such a great way to link up your cards with left-overs and ever since I discovered this blog I have been more conscientious about my scraps...

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
