Joy Clair - Hugs and Smiles

Hi Everyone,

I am on the Joy Clair blog today with a card I made with one of the older Joy Clair sets called Hugs and Smiles:

 I got inspired by Jonsoon Hur from Rejoicing Crafts, who made THIS wonderful card, so I blatantly CASEd it.....This stamp set really lend itself to this technique. I smooshed some distress inks and then stamped with the same colors at the bottom and at the top. I spritzed the stamp with water before I stamped, to give it some softer appearance.

This is that fabulous set:

I added that cute little vase and the heat embossed sentiment  and Bakers twine.

Hope you liked this!

You're right, the stamp set does lend itself to this artsy type of card. Once more, you could do worse than CASEing Yoosun...she's remarkable. But then, so is your card...of course, the color is fabulous but I so love the design elements, too.

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
