Hi Everyone,

I am so honored to be guest designing for TIME OUT for the next two weeks! The challenge theme is lovely -  Inspired by Words: Friendship is Golden. So true!
I immediately knew what I wanted to make!

I die cut the "FRIEND"  - by Winnie &Walter out of thick watercolor paper and foiled the top. I did not want a straight edge to the foiling, so I used that part of the foil I had used on a previous card, giving my those jagged edges. I colored the rest of the die cut with distress inks. I used an iStencil as background, centered ti that it would line up with the "dot of the I". Added the sentiment, also Winnie &Walter  and little sequins.


Here is another view of my card - I just LOVE that gold foil!

Check out all the wonderful inspiration form their talented DT! Happy stamping - I hope to see you over at TIME OUT!

Yowza! and WOW! So clever the way you positioned that dot and using a pre-used sheet of foil is brilliant. The effect is truly stunning. Amazing, the way your mind works. May I borrow it for a few hours?

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
