Guest Designing for Topflight Stamps Take III - Zini meets Dots to Diamonds

Hi Everybody, 

this is my third post as guest designer for Topflight Stamps. I discovered a new product and I am thrilled! It's called Dots to Diamonds. It is a paper pack of 48 high quality cardstock cards with preprinted patterns, that you can adorn with gemstones or Stickles or whatever you have at hand. There are 6 different patterns in every pack. 

My supplies:

I took the dandelion pattern and did an ombre sponge. I took the Zini and colored it (him? her?) with watercolors. Somebody commented and said it looks like a sweet potato - ha ha! I can see that! I cut it out with my Scan 'N Cut. Added it to the card and then added all those gemstones. To not to use too many of those precious little stones I also added some Stickles. 

I din't want to add a sentiment. I think this card is fine without one.

I hope you liked this. See you next Thursday!

Again I have a little present for you:

I will be back next Thursday with more inspiration!

It does look like a sweet potato, even more so in the way you colored him, which, by the way, is adorable. He/she/it does not need a sentiment. Kinda love the Dots and Diamonds paper...I'm off to check it out.

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....)
