Quick and Easy Christmas Card

Hi Everybody,

Quick and Easy Christmas Cards is the motto over at Stampotique. That is just up my alley! I got myself some brand new Stampotique stamps and had to use them!


I sponged the background with distress inks after masking off the sun? moon?  - one of them.... stamped the owls and added white snowy accents. The sentiment is a combination of Hero Arts and Winnie & Walter, which I modified.....


Its a one layer card, therefore quick and easy :)

Was für ein wunderschöner Abendhimmel! Mit ein bisschen Orange und Giftgrün im Hintergrund könnte man sogar auch eine schöne Halloween-Karte daraus machen. So gefällt sie mir aber besser. ;o)

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
