Happy Hanukkah !

Hi Everyone,

I have not played with Make it Monday in ages - time to change that! The topic is splattering, one of my favorite things to do! If you are hesitant to do it - watch the wonderful video at the Make it Monday blog from Danielle Flanders she explains it expertly!


I needed some Hanukkah cards so I pulled out the two little Papertrey sets I have and combined them. Its all heat embossed. Added the splatters and sponged some white ink around the candles and stars to give them some glow.


I know, its a bit late for that, since its starts on Sunday, but since its going on for 8 nights my cards at least will get to their destination before its over......

I am linking up with:

The Card Concept - see below, going for CAS
Muse: Christmas Visions - inspired by Chris Blagrave's wonderful card

Your Hanukkah card is truly beautiful. For the first time in my cardmaking, I have needed to create a Hanukkah card this year. I must say, examples in blogland are few and far between. Yours is a lovely design, and I thank you for telling us what supplies you used to create it.

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
