Dianne made a beautiful "clean and simple" card using the white 80 lb. embossed panel for a card top, a Memory Box die, a sentiment stamp from Magenta and her stamp "kissing" technique on the heart that she just shared with us last week.

Marj had fun with the PoppyStamps new Small Iceland Poppy die. The die has separate parts, so you "build" the flower after die cutting and coloring. Marj cut the die with watercolor paper, then used Distress Markers to color the parts. She used the Wink of Stella clear pen over the poppy petals. Soft watercoloring was used on the background, along with Magenta cloud stamp (CL 0703 O). She added PoppyStamps Grassland Border die (825) for a nice dimensional touch. Impression Obsession's "Poppies" word is A9280.

Through the Dreamweaver Stencil blog site, I came upon Lynn Mercurio. I really liked this card design featuring one of the latest Dreamweaver stencil designs, a large feather.

I loved this card by Tobi Crawford. She has an interesting blog and it includes a separate blog option about her time in China where she is teaching. I digress. The purpose of this posting was to show how to mask and alter the look of your stamp. Since I have a niece and a few friends who are 'ga-ga' over daschunds, I just had to share this.

That's all for today. With heartfelt wishes that the snow melts soon in the northeast part of the country, I found these images of our furry friends enjoying snow.
