Make it Monday and Cure the Monday Blues


When I saw the inspiration picture at Cure for the Monday Blues and the theme at Make it Monday I just knew I had to combine them! The fabulous Danielle Flanders made a wonderful video showing you how to to gold dipped die cuts.



It super easy - all you need is Versamark ink and gold embossing powder. You ink up a part of your die cut with Versamark and then sprinkle embossing powder on  it and heat emboss it. Looks great!
Here is a close up


All my dies are Papertrey. I did some inlaid die cut technique for the Joy. The trees are mounted on foam tape. Added gold thread.


And here is the wonderful inspiration picture:


I am also linking this with the Snippets Playground - its all snippets - except the card base....

Have a great day!

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
