So Suzy - Swirly Heart

 Hi Everyone,

I am back today with another card I made with those wonderful sentiment stamps So Suzy carries. this one is by Audrey Hepburn and goes along perfectly with the Swirly Heart stamp:

I masked a diagonal strip on my card base and sponged with distress inks. 

Used my Misti and stamped the swirly heart in white pigment ink

And then moved the card just a smidgen and over stamped with black ink

So you get a thin white outline and a deep black shadow.

Stamped the sentiment:

Hope you liked this!

What a vibrant and beautiful background and wow that stamp is fantastic in the black against it. Thank you for the tip on the pigment ink and the shadow effect. Stunning card!

This is beautiful!! I LOVE that diagonal distress ink feature. Makes the black POP right off the card. Really lovely design.

Hmmm, ich sehe schon, ich muss mir wirklich bald einen MISTI kaufen... Coole Technik und Layout! Schöne Farben!

Absolutely gorgeous.

Oh that is lovely. That's what the MISTI is good for - positioning where you want it. I love the brightness of the background with the starkness of the black. Xx

Wow! Audrey was one of may favorite actresses and I love this quote. Beautiful swirls over that vibrant strip of color. Love this ghosting adds such depth to a simple card.

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?
