Emboss Resist Christmas Card

    Hi Everyone,

working diligently on my Christmas card pile..... I am again playing along with the 52 CCT challenge. This weeks theme is emboss resist. Cool, have not done that in a while. Always good to be remined about old techniques.

I took one of my old wooden stamps (Penny Black) and stamped with Versamark. I then shifted the stamp a tiny bit downward and stamped it again with in black. Heat embossed in clear. And then I sponged around it in blue. The clear embossed Versamark part looks kind of like snow on the branches. A neat effect. I also added water splatters to create some "snow". Stamped my favorite sentiment (Mama Elephant) and added two gems. Mounted it onto a dark blue card stock paper.

I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting. 
Happy Stamping!

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....)

Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters.
