So Suzy - Cats in a Tree

Hi Everyone, 

I made a romantic night scene using those pretty So Suzy stamps:

I started making my background first - using a punched out post-it note and sponging around in yellow. I then took grey distress ink and sponged again, but was not happy with how it looked. So I took Memento Luxe ink in grey and sponged again - this ink works like a charm - smooth and creamy, no splotches. Then I took the  Cats in a Tree stamp and stamped it with my Misti. Added the Audrey Hepburn sentiment.
It still needed something, so I figured splatters would do and I think they succeeded. You can see it as stars or perhaps snowflakes - after all winter is coming, right?

Linking up with:
AAA cards - masking
CASology - cute (cute cats in love - should work...)
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.

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....)
