STAMPlorations Inspiration #51

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

I hope you have it warm and cozy, where ever you are.

My materials: 
preview-CaffeinatedChristmas   preview-web-stencil-017-CoffeeCup copy.jpeg  stmp1073.jpeg

I colored white embossing paste with distress inks and smeared it onto the stencil. While it was still wet I sprinkled glitter onto the steam. Made a little see-through baggie for my tea bag (from some left over stamp wrapping) and adorned it with the snowflakes. Sponged in some distress ink and added the sentiment and some splatters.


Linking up with:

Snippets Playground - use a snippet - tea bag
The Holiday Coffee Lovers blog hop - there are lots of awesome prizes to win (keeping my fingers crossed...)

Truly, Irish Breakfast with a dash of sugar and a little milk.:

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
