Rainbow Pigeons

Hi Everyone,

I got that awesome pigeon die as part of my birthday present from my sister. Naturally I had to make a thank you card.

I got inspired by a painted utility box, that I found on one of my recent trips to Hoboken, NJ. I thought it would be perfect to transform into a card:

I used a window die I had in my stash and scraps of rainbow paper - since I also wanted to play along in the current Day of the Month card club challenge. The stamps I used are from STAMPlorations and Funky Fossil Designs.

Hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting.

Happy Stamping!

Love your colourful pigeons. We had one in the corridor at work yesterday. It was very stubborn when it came to flying out of the window it had come in by. Thanks for joining us at The Alphabet Challenge. Love Dawn x

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
