Make it Monday #136, a school project and a give-away

Textured Stamping is featured on Make it Monday. Ashley came up with this cool technique of moving the stamp pad on the stamp or vice versa before stamping it on paper. You do need a silhouette stamp for that - don't have too many of those in my Papertrey stash....


I used the Watercolor Wonder set, the sentiment is Think Big Favorites. I used pigment inks for this - thought they would "smear" better....
Her is a close- up - you can see the texture better:

And now I want to share a school project with you that my son and I did together last week. The ideas was his, so was the design - I just helped with the details.....

The project was to make a game about cells - it work similar to Candy land. We made some action card - the yellow ones and some knowledge cards - the white ones. The aim of the game is to collect all the necessary cell organelles - the one who gets them first wins!
(Note that the board is recycled cardboard...)


Today he got his grade back
110 - whohoo!

I cut the chromosomes, the mitochondria and the vacuoles from left over rubber snippets - the rest is from various stamping companies. Isn't it cool how stamping comes in handy for so many things in life....

I am linking this up with the Snippets playground - used sooo many snippets here, but its not really a serious entry, but its a PLAYGROUND, so why not?

Wanna share in the fun and post some school projects you did with your kids on your blog of flickr? Link your projects in the comment section and I'll draw a random winner and raffle of this stamp set among the participants at the beginning of next month - same time as my blog anniversary candy:


It does not need to be a new project - just one you did with your kids for school at some time in the past - no other requirements :)

Loved your bright textured card. Looks like a very modern art piece one would see in a big museum. Well done. Also well done on the science project. What a wonderful way to teach this subject to your son. Great job to both of you, and I'm not surprised at his 110! Congratulations on a fantastic project.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
