So Suzy Themes and Techniques February

    Hi Everyone,

    today's card is for the So Suzy Themes and Techniques February feature.

    Our theme is "Someone Special"
    the technique is "masking"

    My stamps:

    I die-cut myself a window from a piece of scrap paper. You could also just mask a rectangle or whatever shape you want with post-it notes, but this is easier. Taped it to my card base, so it won't slip.

    Used distress inks to sponge

    Added the sentiment - best with a MISTI, because you want a good, black impression.

    Stamped the little sprays in the same colors onto my rectangle and added sequins.

    Go and check out all those fabulous inspiration cards our talented DT made!

    How much do I love rainbows...a bunch. And they're so effective when concentrated in one are against a sea of pure white. Love the card and the sentiment is one of my favorites.

    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....)
