Hugs and Kisses

Hi Everyone,

I am playing in the February challenge over at Joy Clair - shades of red is the requirement! Since Valentin's Day is coming up I decided to stick with that theme:

I used on of my favorite Joy Clair stamp set for this card:
Its called Hugs and Smiles

I inked it up with various distress inks and spritzed it with water and stamped it into opposite corners. Took a piece of plastic and stamped the rest of the ink from my stamp on it, spritzed again and dabbed it in between my stamped images. Let it dry. Added the heat embossed sentiment and a die cut ampersand (Papertrey) as well as gold thread.

Linking up with:
Joy Clair - Shades of Red
AAA Cards - Love
The Paper Players - Valentine
HLS watercolor challenge - used a little die

Happy Smooshing and Spritzing!

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
