Thank You with Leaves

Hi Everyone,

I am taking a break from making DT cards and I am just playing with some of my neglected supplies.


I made this card with stamps and dies by Papertrey - the dies are NBUS. They have been collecting dust for at least a year - what a shame! The whole card is made from snippets - an old (dusty) water colored background, that I did not like, but thought it might be useful one day, the leave outlines - leftover strips of watercolor paper and the butterflies - again left overs from a prior card.


Of course I am playing in some challenges:

Snippets Playground - use a snippet


 

Happy Stamping!

Yay a for using your NBUS! I have the exact same thanks stamp from ME and as soon as I saw this I knew I had to visit because it's given me some ideas on what to do with it. I love the dies and that you've used lots of odds and ends that have been lying around. Perfect for the snippets playground :) xx

Oh, die ist aber schön geworden! Gut, dass du den Hintergrund abgestaubt hast, denn er sieht sehr gut so aus! Und die Schriftzüge machen sich sehr gut hinter den Blättern!

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
