STAMPlorations - The Bee's Knees Stamps Special Release

Hi Everyone,
we have a new mini release at STAMPlorations
Shirley Bampton created two adorable owl sets

They are Big Owls and Little Owls
Here is card #1:

For this card I made a smooshed watercolor background. Stamped the owl and added white gel pen to the eyes and orange to the beaks. Splattered some.

 Here is card #2:

I stamped the owl and colored them with water brush pens. Stamped the sentiment. Used the crazy stitched die as border. Still wanted more of a border, so I sponged around the outside. Added some twine.

Of course we have prizes for our commenters: 
- ONE (1) winner of a $15 gift code

I adore owls so these new sets are a feast for my eyes. The way you've chosen to showcase them is ideal. Love the smooshed colors and those big eyed birds of the 1st card. Impressed with the coloring of that darling trio on the second. Beefing up the border was an excellent choice.

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
