So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps - Bokeh Valentine

Hi Everyone,

time to think about Valentine's  Day!
I made a Bokeh background for my card.

Let me show you how I did this:

I used a Clarity Bubbles stencil and my brand new Clarity Brushes - you can get them in the store (click on the link) and started out with a light pink card base.

I brushed with various distress oxide inks

making sure I always move the stencil in a different position.

I used worn lipstick, picked raspberry and abandoned coral.

I took the Swirly Hearts stamp and my Misty and stamped it onto the upper half of my panel - I will be using the lower half for a second card.

I cut the panel in half and added the sentiment (simple Love You)- heat embossed it onto a small die cut black card stock heart. Added small strips of silver metallic Washi tape and glitter enamel dots.

Thanks for visiting!

Brilliant bokeh...never thought about using colored card and inks for bokeh but it works so well. Very satisfying. And you still have a piece for another card. I always knew your were clever.

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
