Plaid Christmas

  Hi Everyone,

I am not a fan of this card, but I am showing it anyhow....should have passed on this challenge....I am not good with patterned paper, but occasionally I think I should use up all the paper I have hoarded despite my inability to use it adequately. 
those this is one of those failed attempts, LOL!
The prompt was to use plaid and I do think the paper is pretty. I added two embossed baubles (Sizzix). It's really brilliant, embossing and die cutting in one step. I did learn how to make a double bow (thanks for the internet). Added the sentiment. I also added some gilding polish to the baubles (did not really help...)

Perhaps you like this better than I do. Thanks for visiting!

Happy Stamping!

Du hast Dich aber sehr elegant aus der Affäre gezogen und obwohl Du Designpapier nicht so magst, eine sehr ansprechende Karte gebastelt.
Liebe Grüße, Flo

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

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
