You've never looked Younger

Hi Everyone, 

I am taking a break from making endless Christmas cards... it's kind of refreshing. I also think I probably have enough of them for this year, yeahhh! It helps, to make them all year round!

I needed a birthday card for my brother in law - he has a big one coming up. So it needs to be special!
I figured the Katzelkraft dragon is just the right thing for him......

I paired him up with a STAMPlorations sentiment - this one is just too funny! The ballons are by Avery Elle. I sponged a bit of black soot distress inks on them to make them stand out more. I did not do that for the bottom PP strip. I colored the dragon with Stabilo markers and added tiny dots of Stickles  - it does not show well in the picture. 

You think you also need that dragon and don't want to order from France? 
You can get him HERE.

Happy Stamping!

Of course a dragon counts - besides, even non-vegans might hesitate at eating one! What a fabulous card for your brother, love your colouring and the balloon numbers! And thanks for the tip on where to buy Katzelkraft outside of Europe. ;) Of course, thanks too for joining the fun at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Girl, you're on a snarky roll. Surely you know your brother well enough that he'll appreciate your humor. The addition of those puffy balloons is fantastic, personalizing the card perfectly.

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
