STAMPlorations Inspiration March 9

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day at STAMPlorations

The DT girls made some beautiful cards to entice you playing with your stamps - STAMPlorations or otherwise..... 


I am playing with the set Trendy Butterflies. I inked them up with Gesso - trying the Gesso resist technique. Not sure if I am happy with it. I like my images crisp, not smudgy.... sloshed some water color around the butterflies - the resist worked only partially.....Stamped the sentiments onto watercolor paper - to have the same colored paper and colored the large word with the same colors as the watercolor background. You can see it if you look carefully....

So, if you are up for it - CASE my card or any other card and link it up over at STAMPlorations. The InLinkz gallery  will be open until the 5th of April - givse you plenty of time! One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries to win a $15 gift certificate or their choice of any 2 ARTplorations stencils.

Happy CASEing!

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
