Yellow Pig Day


Since this coincides with my weekly Katzelkraft post I thought I combine my posts to not bother you with two posts in a day.... The fun pig here in yellow is from the set Farm Animals. The background I made with an embossing folder and a stencil and the sentiment is a Dylusions set.

Ich hoffe, ich konnte Euch animieren, mitzumachen!

Die Gewinner werden am 5. des folgenden Monats vorgestellt und die neue Challenge beginnt dann am 7. des Monats.

The Back Stories With Darnell and Cornelia - #7 Genevieve


GENEVIEVE

As if the gale force winds weren’t bad enough, turning her favorite umbrella inside out and ruining her ponytail, now the skies had opened up and Genevieve was being splattered by giant white globs of God-knew-what.



Genevieve knew there was only one way to extricate herself from this yucky situation. She hated to use her super power right out in public, but she was never going to get there in time if she didn’t act now.
She stretched her arm straight out in front in a line parallel to her shoulder.
She stood with her legs slightly akimbo so the lines of her stockings were matching each other.
With her left arm, she slowly removed the belt from her raincoat and stood patiently until the lines of the coat hems were parallel with her blowing hair and her inside-out umbrella.
Keeping her breath as shallow as possible, Genevieve could feel herself being slowly lifted off the pavement. With every inch she rose, she shrunk. In seconds she was barely visible. It all happened so fast that no one noticed the little spot of red heading south, carried on the wind to save the children.

Stamp Connection #51

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 2rd Sunday of the month and this is our ninth transatlantic get-together!


This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:

 Stripes

And as you see I put stripes everywhere. I love that little Zebra from A Capella stamps - a gift from my Instagram friend Daniela from Dani's Stempelschublade



This was super easy - stamped the Zebra, added the sentiment, some Washi tape and enamel dots, trimmed the card stock and added stripes of patterned paper at the top and bottom. 






Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Rubber Dance - Fly-Fly Flowers

Hi Everyone,

I recently got this gorgeous stamp called Fly-Fly flowers from Rubber Dance. They needed to go on a card.



My stamp supplies:



And that's how I did it:

I stamped the flowers twice and cut them with my Scan'N Cut.


Added some drops of cheap Acrylic paint (from Michaels) onto thick card stock


smeared it with my fingers and let it dry.


Splattered orange acrylic paint onto my panel and let it dry again.


Glued the flowers onto the card base. I thought it needed some more pop of color, so I took an orange marker and colored the butterfly bodies with it. Looked much better. I decided to not use a sentiment. I don't think it really needs one.



Don't forget about our challenge, which goes until the end of the month. Play along, if you find time!
You'll find it in the Facebook Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge and its those three colors you see below or anything goes with Rubber Dance stamps.


Happy Rubber Dancing!

STAMPlorations Inspiration #224

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!



My stamp supplies:
preview-LayeredWatermelon
Layered Watermelon

I found this idea on Pinterest and it was too good to not re-create.... I did try to find the link to give credit to the creator of this idea, but unfortunately I could not find it anymore.  It's pretty self explanatory how I made this - I made a mask for the bites. Other than that simple stamping.
