Cats on Appletrees

Hi Everyone,

it's that time of the year, where you need copious amounts of thank you cards... so I figured, I better get started.
This one is very quick:

I used those cute animals from Cats on Appletrees, which my daughter got me in the fall. They stack up nicely and all you need is ink that covers well. I did that with my brand new Catherine Pooler inks, but I have also done that with distress oxide ink, which works just as well. I masked them and sponged with distress oxide ink. The advantage of the Catherine Pooler ink is, that it does not react with the oxide ink and the colors stay true. Added Washi tape, the thank you (The Ton) and then I decided to use some enamel dot - bottom card - I think its better with them.

Happy Stamping!

Okay! You got me...have to have some of these critters. That pig screams, "buy me", at me everytime I see it. And using that hot pink just makes them pop! Waiting for a full review on the CP inks (kidding). Happy 2018!
That is such a cute and fun thank you card design.

Hahaha, so fun, Cornelia (in both versions) ... your stack of critters is brilliant against the swiped pink (at least you made it look wonderfully swiped even if it isn't!) ... sure to raise a smile! Happy New Year ... Bonne Année 2018! Hugs, Anita :)

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
