So Suzy - Monochromatic Leaves

Hi Everyone,

I am up on the So Suzy blog today with a super simple card I made with those fabulous leaves from the October release!

Those are the stamps I used:

You can literally make this card in no time at all. You do not need to mask anything. I started with the black leaves. Waited for the ink to dry (had dinner in between) and then stamped the white leaves and heat embossed them. You can see the black shining through a bit - that is okay, after all they are skeleton leaves...

The card still needed something, so I took the small leaf and inked it up in grey and stamped over the other leaves. You can wipe the ink off the white embossed ones - the embossing resists it.

Added the sentiment and sequins.

Hope you liked this! 
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. 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?
