Joy Clair - Hoppy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

today I show you two cards I made with my favorite March release stamp set:

I just love those frogs. Especially that goofy one with the cupcake on its head! Its just hilarious! As you can see I stamped him repeatedly , but only colored one - makes it stand out and is also less "work". Heat embossed the sentiment.

For my second card I did some sponging and masking. Added white gel pen accents. The background embossing is from Papertrey.

Have a TOADally awesome day!

Okay, that first one IS hilarious, I'm still laughing. And the second is perfect. Love the embossing on the card base. Of course, it goes without saying, they are both expertly colored.

A duo of *toad-al* awesomeness! The cupcake-sporting frog is a scream! Your sponging captivates me. Please, what's your secret to your background perfection? So impressive...

Die erste Froschkarte ließ mich schmunzeln: ein Frosch mit Schlagsahne und Kerze im Gesicht!!!!!
Die zweite ist sehr schön geworden, besonders ist dieser Embossing-Untergrund.
Einfach klasse!!!

These are both so terrific! Put a huge smile on my face. Particularly love how you just coloured one of the frogs in the first card. Well done. Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday.

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
