A Pigeon Thank You

 Hi Everyone,

I got this wonderful pigeon stamp set (Gerda Steiner) for my birthday from my sister and therefore needed to make a thank you card for her.

I die cut the windows and then ran the cover plate again through my Big Shot, but only embossed the windows onto the white card base. Stamped the pigeons in the openings and colored them with Copics. Stamped the sentiment (Casual Friday) and sponged some of the windows. Adding pigeons in all of the windows I think would have been too much. Added some snow drops and some thread. Mounted it onto a black card base.

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....)
