Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps - Love Swans

Hi Everybody,

I pulled out some oldies from my Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamp stash. those swans are gorgeous and didn't see much ink yet.

I made myself a rectangular mask and sponged the background. Stamped the white swan and stamped it again onto a piece of scrap card stock. Cut it out. Glued it onto the swan on the card. Used a stamp positioner to stamp the Black swan onto the card. Took a white gel pen for accents and colored the beaks. Once the ink was completely dry (next day) I heat embossed the sentiment. Added splatters.

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....)
