Less is More #154 and Welcome to two New Members


I am happy to tell you that my blog has grown again and two new members have found their way over to my blog! I want to send a warm welcome to 
and 

Both are accomplished stampers and their blog are fun to visit - lots of inspiration to be found - hop on over, if you have time. Thanks Ladies for joining my blog. And as always, I picked a welcome picture for you:



This masterpiece can be right now found at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and is knitted by Tatyana Yanishevsky. I took the picture from the internet (usually I take my own), but the way it was hung there made it impossible to take decent pictures..... It quite amazing and was definitely worth while the trip. I hope you like it. I certainly do. So intricate, this Tigerlily, quite amazing!

But now,back to card making...

I made this for the Less is More challenge - its one layer hearts this week. 





The little hearts are stamps by Judith, the beautiful ampersand is a stencil from TCW and the  sentiment is Hero Arts You and Me. I spritzed it with glimmer mist and added glossy accents to the hearts. It was very quick to make the card, although it took me forever to come up with something I liked....

I am also adding this card to the Oozak challenge - Love
A Blog named Hero - New Year - New Stash - used my brand new stencil


Have a good night and dream about stamps.........

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
