Dry Embossed Holly Jolly Christmas Card

 Hi Everyone,

working on increasing my Christmas card pile..... I am playing along with the 52 CCT challenge. The theme is dry embossing. 

I took an embossing folder (Mundart Stempel) and Kraft paper. Took some gold gilding polish and gave everything a gold shimmer. Wasn't happy with the outcome and took my brayer and brayered green ink onto one side of the embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot again (you will have to line it up correctly). I liked that better. Took the tired angel from the Katzelkraft Pabos series, stamped and colored him and cut him out. Die cut my favorite Santa (Dixi Craft) in black. Heat embossed the sentiment and added it with foam tape.
Lastly I added Stickles to the halo, the wings and the bottom of the dress.

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.
