STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

its a BIG day today at STAMPlorations! This is our 3rd annual Giving Thanks Blog Hop
It is bigger than ever!

We are showcasing the new typographia stamps. 35 designers, including 8 GDT's! You are going to have a lot of fun here!

I made two cards - this is card #1:

My materials:

I heat embossed on wood paper and ran it through my Big Shot with the nesting die. Diecut the flowers form water color paper I had previously spritzed with Dylusion inks. Assembled it all on black card stock.

Now card #2":

My materials:

Sponged the background with distress inks. Waited for them to dry completely and heat embossed in white. Stamped the flowers. Ran it through my Big Shot with the nesting die. Added Stickles.

And here comes the BEST:

Because we're doing the Giving Thanks hop this week, all our stamps, stencils, and dies are 40% off with the BIGTHANKS coupon, starting tomorrow November 15th. (Coupon could be used only once per customer/shipping address; coupon does not apply to products in the New Release and Retiring categories; coloring books; and gift certificates). But you can use my 20% off DT code STAMPGIRLCORNELIA an unlimited number of times to purchase stamps in the New Release category (and you get a freebie only if your order is at least $40).

You can choose a free word/phrase die (up to $10 value) and have it included in your order (no minimum order).

These look fabulous. I love the die cut flowers gracing the corners of the woodgrain plank.
All are gorgeous. I really love the wood background for the first one you displayed. That makes those images just pop.

Both cards are great. I suck at blending and would never attempt the second one - at least not right now... The wood theme card is gorgeous! I love the pop of color from the flowers that flank the wood. I like how you colored and sparkled the center of the flowers on the blended card and that they frame and contrast with the sentiment. Nocely done!

These are really beautiful! I love the wood background and bright flower die cuts. The distress inks are so lovely together and the outline flowers are a perfect touch.

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
