STAMPlorations Inspiration #167

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

This week we are featuring Becca Cruger's stamp line Big Grins.

My stamp supplies:
preview-Buttercups & Butterflies
Buttercups and Butterflies

I stamped the flowers and wet them with a brush. Sprinkled Brushos on them, moved the color around a little bit and waited for the water to dry. Added Finetec to the center of the flowers - you can only see this on the photo below. I heat embossed the sentiment and added a scrap piece of water colored card stock between the sentiment and the card.

Throughout April all stamps, stencils and dies (excluding retiring stamps are 10% off (no coupon needed) 

Or even better use code STAMPGIRLCORNELIA

You did it in yellow and I'm here to say thank you. Definitely screams, "encouragement" card to me. And doing the flowers with Brushos really livens them up.

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
