7 Days 7 Sketches - Day 5 and 6

Looks like I might make it through all 7 days at Mel's 7 Days 7 Sketches......
This is my card for day 5:

Cut the big circle with a Lifestyle Crafts die and used a square die to cut the square. Watercolored them and taped them in. Stamped the butterflies from Stamplorations - Artful Flutters, added white accents and stamped the sentiment (ancient Memory Box set- In the Garden - CL106) around the circle

Here is another view:

Now onto day 6:

I die cut myself some stamps from fun foam, using those Lifestyle Crafts nesting dies. The smaller circles are by Hero Arts - Box of Dots (LL890). The die cut love is by Papertrey - Wet Paint. Added some enamel dots and 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
