Watercolor Stamping with Twofers

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to play with my Local King Rubber Stamps and needed a challenge to spark my imagination....
Twofers came to the rescue - the theme is watercolor stamping.

I used watercolor markers and colored my stamp, stamped it onto glossy card stock and then die cut it. One ostrich was not enough, so I stamped him some grey companions. Added splatters just for fun and some Washi tape. The sentiment also comes with the stamp set.

Here you see better that the die cut ostrich is mounted with foam tape. I am thinking birthday card for an Australian here - I think it works even without a specific birthday sentiment, or?

Happy Stamping!

Your ostriches card makes me smile...reminds me of Sesame Street's "One of these things is not like the other' song! Such fun! Sentiment? Totally fine without!

That ostrich is not only colored beautifully, he makes me laugh because of the nutty expression. Of course, it will work for any birthday, no matter the nationality.

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
