Anniversaries for Paper Smooches and Retrosketches


Paper Smooches is celebrating its 3rd year! Happy Birthday - I love you guys! I wish you many more - your stamps are so cute and always make me smile! Its also retrosketches challenge #100 - that is one good reason to celebrate - happy 100st challenge!!!! I hope for many more! Of course I have to play.......And the theme at Creative Friday  is Kraft - so here we go:



I made that card for a sweet little girl in Germany - the daughter of one of our former Au Pairs. She just send me a picture she made and this needs to be rewarded. I think she is going to like this card!


Materials: Paper Smooches - Chubby Chums and Sentiment sampler, Washi Tape, Twine from the Twinery, self made enamel dots.

Do you know you can make enamel dots yourself? I learned that on the Internet....from somebody I can't remember.... You take a bottle of white enamel accents and make little (or large) dots on a sheet of acetate, a craft sheet or I just used one of the plastic sleeves the clear stamps come in. Let them dry and color them with Copics or whatever marker you have. Sharpies work well too. Its a lot cheaper and you can make them the size you want. They are a little flatter than the real thing, but for mailing cards that is an advantage. I glue them on with glossy accents. 

I am also linking this card with Paper Smooches - anything goes
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - anything goes with twine or string

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
