Stenciled Thank You

Hi Everyone,

this is my second post today, if you are looking for the STAMPlorations inspiration post scroll down or click HERE.

I am trying my luck with Less is More today - a real challenge for me! Neutral colors is the theme. Not my thing.....

But here we go:

I was playing again with my iStencils. This one is called WAVY STRIPES. It is brand new, I hadnot yet used it.

6x6 PTP-108 wavy stripes

You can do really cool stuff with it, shifting it  for your second stencil layer. 

To keep with the color scheme I added a Kraft stripe and sentiment (by SSS).

I am also linking up with:
Just us Girls - Thank you
Inkspirational - Thank you with something new (stencil)

And if you are wondering how I made this card -hop over to STAMPlorations and you'll find the tutorial for it.

Happy Stamping!

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
