STAMPlorations Things with Wings Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

we at STAMPlorations are having a spring blog hop featuring the new stamps and dies - you are going to love them!

 
The theme is Things with Wings - even if there are no wings on flowers....


I have two cards for you. For the first one I used those pretty trendy flower dies. I sprayed watercolor paper with Dylusion inks, let it dry and die cut a bunch of flowers. Arranged them on my card with a dark grey panel under neath. Added the word die - also brand new. I used fun foam for it.
For the grey panel I also used the stitched nesting die to give it more interest.

For my second card I used the butterfly row die and stamped it with Versamark black ink. Added watercolors and let it dry. I also used the  largest of the Stitched Nesting Dies and added the word die sentiment - love those different fonts!

I think your flowers do have wings, because they've flown straight to my heart! LOVE your bold blooms! As for your butterflies...swoon! Apologies for falling behind yet again, but this time the 'big move' is to blame! LOVE x LOVE my new house! Still so much to do, including the back-and-forth drives to deal with the townhouse. Anyway...a dynamic duo here! I'm so glad to be designing alongside you for this hop!

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
