Guest Designing for Topflight Stamps Take IV

Hi Everybody, 

this is my fourth post as guest designer for Topflight Stamps. I am again playing with this new product called Dots to Diamonds. It is a paper pack of 48 high quality cardstock cards with preprinted patterns, that you can adorn with gemstones or Stickles or whatever you have at hand. There are 6 different patterns in every pack. 



In addition, you can purchase those sparkly gems in every color you can imagine.

My supplies:


The rest is pretty easy. I masked the circle of my card and sponged around in rainbow colors. Added mostly gems to the dots, but also a bit of Stickles. And that was all. Can't be easier than that. LOVE all the sparkle!



I hope you liked this. See you next Thursday!

Again I have a little present for you:

If you use code FUNSTAMPING you will get 12% discount at Topflight Stamps!

I will be back next Thursday with my last inspiration!

Guest Designing for 52 CCT and a Give-Away

Hi Everyone,

this month seems to be GDT month for me - I hope you won't get tired of this! I have the honor to be guest designing for 52 CCT for the next two weeks. 


And the theme is - you guessed it:


I have this previously unused Stamps of Life set in my stash - it clearly needed to see some ink... I sponged the background and used a cover plate to make this "snowy" background. The elf is colored with Inktense and I cut it with my Scan'N Cut. Mounted him with foam tape. 


I am so glad I got another excuse for a Christmas card, I am soooo behind in creating a little stash....Perhaps you feel the same way and will find time to play along!

And in the spirit of Christmas I will raffle of this set (lightly used) to my blog followers who leave a comment and my Instagram followers, who will leave a comment on Instagram - leave a comment on both and it will double your chances!

Happy Stamping!

Rubber Dance - Textured Mushrooms

Hi Everyone,

it's time for my Rubber Dance post. I am lucky to get my stamps on this wonderful Textured Mushroom stamp set by Rubber Dance. 


There are so many mushrooms to choose from. I did not use them all. Unfortunately I could not download a picture form the website. Not sure why, but you can look at it through the link I provided. I colored the mushrooms with water brush pens and fuzzy cut them. The background I had in my stash. I didn't put a sentiment on it, I figured I can do that later or not use one at all.



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.

The Back Stories With Darnell and Cornelia - #9 Debra


Debra


When she agreed to be on top as the lookout, Debra didn’t realize there would be such a strong breeze that day. She hated having her ears blown back, especially since she had just been to the salon.



Now that she had managed to climb to the top of this pack of imbeciles, Debra realized that she could spin any kind of yarn she wanted to about what was happening on the other side of the fence. How would the other three know what was true?

In that moment, Debra fully understood the meaning of faith.

She had faith that Louie, Bruce, and Herbert would not let her fall and they, in turn, had faith that she would tell the truth about what she saw.

As she stared at the neighbor’s house, suddenly a shadow stepped into the light from the porch.

Guest Designing for Topflight Stamps Take III - Zini meets Dots to Diamonds

Hi Everybody, 

this is my third post as guest designer for Topflight Stamps. I discovered a new product and I am thrilled! It's called Dots to Diamonds. It is a paper pack of 48 high quality cardstock cards with preprinted patterns, that you can adorn with gemstones or Stickles or whatever you have at hand. There are 6 different patterns in every pack. 


My supplies:


I took the dandelion pattern and did an ombre sponge. I took the Zini and colored it (him? her?) with watercolors. Somebody commented and said it looks like a sweet potato - ha ha! I can see that! I cut it out with my Scan 'N Cut. Added it to the card and then added all those gemstones. To not to use too many of those precious little stones I also added some Stickles. 


I din't want to add a sentiment. I think this card is fine without one.

I hope you liked this. See you next Thursday!

Again I have a little present for you:

If you use code FUNSTAMPING you will get 12% discount at Topflight Stamps!

I will be back next Thursday with more inspiration!

Twofer #19 - Nautical

Hi Everyone,

the new Twofer challenge is out and instead of procrastinating I just went up to my  craft room and made two cards!


The theme is Nautical!


How cool! The only problem was, that I have way too many supplies I could possibly use. I settled on the big crab that I imported a while ago from Germany from the online shop Steckenpferdchen. They have some cool stuff in that store and clearly, I couldn't leave the crab there....



For this card I stamped the crab onto photo paper and added some splatters and smooshed a bit. Added the fish die cuts. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. I couldn't resist adding some googly eyes....


For my second card I stamped the crab in red tones, using and ombre ink pad from Michaels.


The thin frames are also from Steckenpferdchen. Tied a die cut fish to it and stamped the sentiment (Katzelkraft). Small googly eyes for this one.


Loving my Twofer cards!
