Muse combined with HOC

Hi Everyone,

I want to share a card I made for two challenges - the Muse and HOC. The Muse card is by Joan Bardee from Dear Paperlicious. Her card is so pretty and I love the non-traditional Christmas colors. It also fits nicely with the gorgeous HOC inspiration picture. So it's just natural to combine the two......




I used that gorgeous Hero Arts wreath and first heat embossed it in white and then again in pink. I die cut the Kraft panel with a stitched die by SSS. Added the sentiment - both the die and stamp are by Avery Elle. The little greenery is by Poppy Stamps. And then I added different colored pearls for more dimension and shine.



On the left is Joans' fab CAS card and on the right is the HOC inspiration picture.

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
