Addicted to Stamps and More #146


Hi Everyone,
this is my second blog post today - if you are looking for the STAMPlorations blog hop, click HERE

Its challenge time at ATSM! For the next two weeks our theme is Anything Goes - don't you just love this?




I used that wonderful Cardinal from the brand new STAMPlorations set The Birds and The Blooms and colored him with water colors. Added the branch  - by Memory Box and stamped the leaves, which are form the set Rosebuds and colored them in, too. Added splatters, what else...?

And then I added Stickles to the beak - it has to glitter somewhere...

Okay so I am on the Addicted to Stamps blog and admiring the DT work when I cam upon your cardinal card. It was so beautiful and well balanced that it took my breath away. Not kidding... Your coloring is AMAZING and the sentiment choice is perfect!! I guess what I am trying to say is this is one FANTASTIC card.

I'm a bird junkie so I've been fascinated by your bird cards...just gorgeous. Cardinals are one of my favorite birds. Sadly, in our area they're not indigenous but I sure love how you color them.

Your bright red bird, with his sparkly beak, is marvelous! He's pretty and, I imagine, rather friendly...unlike the hippo-sized scary black ones we have *grin*!

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
