Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps - Smooshing Distress Inks

Hi Everybody,

I created a spring like card for you today with a smooshed distress oxide ink background.

My stamp supplies:

And that's how I did this:

I took water color paper and a small acrylic block. I wet the paper and inked up the block. Smooshed it onto the paper. Repeated the process until I was happy with the result.

I took the stamps and stamped them randomly onto the background. Did some masking as you can see. I doodled the stems and the grass on the ground. Added Bakers twine. I didn't feel it needed a sentiment. Sometimes you don't need one and you can  use the card for whatever purpose you like.

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.

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
