Muse Christmas Visions #104

Hi Everyone,

last time I did not find enough time to play along with my teamie over at Muse Christmas Visions, but I couldn't let this current opportunity pass again..... 

Our current Muse is Kimberley, who made this cute card:

I don't own little girl stamps (not my thing), so I replaced her with a fox (Michaels). Went with a similar color scheme for the background (Hero Arts). Added the sentiment (Ellen Hutson).

So come and play along! You'll have lots of time, the linky list closes at 7:59 AM EST on Monday, July 23rd.

See you at MCV!

So Suzy Stamps - Leafy Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone,

again, I pulled out some of my older So Suzy stamps for this card. They are just so beautiful and need some love......

Especially that Maple Leaf - my absolute favorite!

I heat embossed it in white.

Added the Chestnut Leaf, just stamped with Versamark.

And lastly the Mini Spray, stamped in black. Added the sentiment, heat embossed in white and a little left over stripe of patterned paper. Also added a wood bird from my stash. Lastly I trimmed the Kraft paper before mounting it on a white card base.

A simple card. Hope you like it!

Happy Birthday with Katzelkraft

Hi Everyone,
It's Katzelkraft time!

For this card I used the Balloons and combined it with Cat #8. I stamped the cat and the balloons (with some masking). Used masks and added my cloudy background with a MFT stencil. I colored it with Inktense pencils. 

I hand drew the balloon strings, since I did not want to have to fiddle with the ones from the set..... Added the sentiment with stamps from my stash.

If you feel the urge to buy any Katzelkraft products, you can also order them in the US from those companies: Topflight StampsFrantic Stamper or Lost Coast Designs

Happy Stamping!

Stamp Connection #39

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 3rd Sunday of the month and this is our ninth transatlantic get-together!

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:
Paper clips

As you see, I took two paper clips and turned them into little stick figures with googly eyes. I adorned them with Impression Obsession die cuts. The sentiment is by Avery Elle. A strip of patterned paper at the bottom to ground the card.

I love them! Such a cute little pair!

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Big Fish

 Hi Everyone,

I saw the challenge at The Male Room and knew I had to play along...
 The theme is fish.

I fairly recently bought this stunning stamp from Stampscapes and made a few cards with it, that I have not yet shown. This is one of them. Sponged on photo paper, stamped and fussy cut the fish. Added white accents and the sentiment.

Trimmed the card stock and mounted on a white card base.

Happy Stamping!
