Stamp Connection #2

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 second transatlantic get-together!

Our requirements for this meet-up were:

Flowers & Watercolors

And here is my card:

I masked off a square on watercolor paper, stamped the flowers and then flicked on water color in green and yellow tones. Waited  for it to dry and then sponged lightly around the flowers to make the square stand out more. Added the sentiment. All stamps are by Unity from the set Insightful Meadows


Now aren't you curious what Tanja did - I for sure are - lets go and visit her!

I am linking up with:

Unity challenge - see below
AAA cards challenge - Springtime
Naughty or Nice - in bloom
The Artistic Stamper - Flora and Fauna
GRAB A challenge blinkie for your blog :O))

And I have a second card to share:

I made that for the A Blog named Hero challenge - embossing. The color inspiration I got from the Stamping Royalty challenge - see picture below. I heat embossed that beautiful Hero Arts Starburst Lace stamp  with WOW gold embossing powder. Added an aqua watercolor wash and also water colored a strip in the same color. The die cut is by Lil Inkers. Some gold thread.

Also playing with showCASe your style - Thank You and Shopping our Stash - Lost and found - have not used that doily stamp in years.....

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
