So Suzy Stamps January Blog Hop

Hi Everybody!

Welcome to the January So Suzy Stamps Design Team January Blog Hop!
Our theme is - Vellum and Baby its cold outside.
You probably arrived from the talented Martha from Stampartpapel.
Here is my card:
I also went with our January theme - Baby its cold outside and vellum.

Curious how I made this card?
I dry embossed vellum - best done in between sheets of regular paper, so it does not rip. Added the sentiment on a piece of pale blue card stock and attached the vellum to it. Added some Washi tape on top and silver embroidery thread. For some sparkle I generously added Wink of Stella to the snowflakes and extra Stickles in the center.
Perhaps you can see this better in those magnified pictures, where somehow the color totally disappeared...

I stamped the sentiment onto light blue card stock, attached teh vellum panel and added Washi tape on top as well as a silver embroidery thread.
Your next stop on the hop is Olesya - she makes the most amazing cards! You can't miss her!

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
