Thanks a Ton!

Hi Everyone,

 I am playing with the Your Next Stamp challenge, combining the color and sketch challenge (see pictures below). I love their stamps - they are so cute without being cutesy. The set I am using here is called Jungle Critters 2
I am always in need of thank you cards.......

I stamped teh elephant onto shimmer paper, colored it with Copics and fuzzy cut him The eyes and toenails I accented with liquid enamel. the background I sponged onto watercolor paper using distress inks and then splattered water droplets on it. It does not show that well. I'm not sure what I did srong here - maybe its the paper???? The dark blue side strip I embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. 
On the picture below you can see the shimmer of the elephant a little better:

Added Bakers twine.

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
