Topflight Stamps - Pinky Inky

Hi Everyone,

I immediately fell for the inspiration picture from Inkspirational (see below) about Yayoi Kusama, a contemporary Japanese artist, who was supposed to exhibit this year at the New York Botanical Garden, but unfortunately the exhibit was cancelled, courtesy of COVID-19....

 I literally had this beautiful octopus stamp now for years and it was still waiting to be inked up....Immediately thought of it and pulled it out of hiding....


I used watercolor paper and stamped the huge octopus on it. It really is enormous! It did not quite fit on my A2 card. But most of it did. Good enough. I colored it with water colors. I used a little strip of designer paper on the side and used the same paper to heat emboss the sentiment.

From llamas to octopi...how versatile you are. Love this image, however, you must be really sad that the NY exhibition was cancelled. Remarkable coloring on this massive stamp. Must have taken you forever to finish.

Der Octupus sieht ein wenig aus wie ein Hirschkopf an einer Wand im entsprechenden Lokal!!!
Ich finde ihn lustig.

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
