So Suzy Friends & Family Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

welcome to the Friends & Family Blog Hop at So Suzy Stamps. 

Perhaps you arrived from the wonderfully talented Justine Hovey.

I started out heat embossing the stamp in gold.

Colored it with Inktense pencils.

Colored some more.

Added the sentiment.

Drew some lines and added some sequins.

​And what would be a blog hop without prizes? 
1st price of 25$ gift card from the store
three additional prizes of 15$ gift card from the store.

Commenting is open from April 26 to midnight April 29.
The winners will be announced on So Suzy's Blog and So Suzy's Facebook page on May 4th.
Your next stop on the hop is Donna Idlet
And here is the complete line up for the hop, in case you get lost:

Gorgeous coloring with your Inktense pencils, Cornelia! I love how you placed the birds and bloom with this lovely sentiment...such a striking design!
Dir beim Kolorieren und Gestalten deiner Karten "über die Schulter schauen" zu dürfen, finde ich immer sehr spannend.
Die Farben dieser Karte sind absolut fantastisch. geradezu paradiesisch. ;)
Aber auch der gewählte Spruch gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut.
Liebe Grüße

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
