So Suzy Button Flowers

Hi Everyone,

I want to share a card with you I made with those pretty flowers from the new So Suzy release. If you are like me and not that good at coloring, you could try this with your flower stamps. 

I used both button flowers, there is a right and a left one.

I stamped the flowers randomly on Kraft with Versamark,

heat embossed them

and colored them with white paint and a water brush.

Added s faint grey shadow for dimension

Then I heat embossed the sentiment and underlaid it with vellum. Added it with foam tape for dimension

I still thought it need a little something. I just got those wonderful dragonfly die cuts from my blogging friend Doerthe from Flo's Habseligkeiten - one of them flew right onto the card!

I "treated" it with Stickles beforehand.

Hope you liked this!

Okay, now I have a new technique to add to my ever increasing list. The white paint really makes those lovely flowers POP on the kraft. Ususally I have trouble getting white intense enough to show up but this works like a charm. Gorgeous card.

Absolutely stunning Cornelia. The flowers look so dimensional on your card with the white on the kraft! Just beautiful!

For not being good at coloring you nailed this one, Cornelia. The soft white makes the flowers look transparent and the gray shading gives them so much dimension.

Die Libelle macht sich auf den weißen Blumen wirklich gut.
Weiß angemalt habe ich noch nie etwas, sollte ich mal probieren, auch wenn ich nicht solche tollen Stifte habe. Vielleicht geht das auch mit meinen Buntstiften, mal sehen.
Liebe Grüße

Was heißt hier "nicht gut im Kolorieren"? Die Blümchen sind doch koloriert und die sehen richtig gut aus. Ich bin ganz begeistert von der Karte! Vielen lieben Dank fürs Mitspielen bei der Stempelküche-Challenge.

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
