I like to try working with seasonal stamp sets in ways that will extend it's use beyond that holiday. This set is called Spring Zen by The Project Bin and is a Spring/Easter set. I used the egg and embossed it in pewter and colored with Arteza brush markers. It reminded me a lot of cloisonne and the embossing is prettier in real life. Sometimes it is hard to capture the shine and depth in photographs.

I started with Tim Holtz distress oxide inks of Broken China and Chipped Sapphire and it looked icy so that is why I went with a winter card. Embossed this glossy panel with Sizzix 3D Snowflakes folder. Added a sentiment from Lawn Fawn (Believe in Yourself) and embellished with some Stampin' Up! rhinestone snowflake embellishments.

I have a few relatives that have birthdays during Christmas week, one on the day before and one on the day after. It's nice to make them feel even more special by sending a card in late June to celebrate the half way mark!
The die cuts are Tim Holtz Sizzix Tropical and the sentiment embossed in gold is from Birthday Girl by The Project Bin.

This uses Stampin' Up!'s Lilypad Lake and coordinating dies. Glossy card stock was brayered with three different Tim Holtz distress oxide inks and then lightly spritzed so they ran and mixed. It looked a bit like Monet's pond so I decided it needed some waterlilies. Made it into a picture with the stitched rectangle die and an acetate sheet.
