Stamp Connection #4

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 forth transatlantic get-together!

This time it was Tanja's turn to pick the requirements :

One Layer & Stencil

just my thing - thanks Tanja!

And here is my card:

I bet Tanja did not think of Christmas when she suggested that theme - but who knows - I am curious! But to be honest, I did not think about it right away either - it just happened.....The truth of the matter is - I wanted to play in the One Layer Christmas card challenge - green is wanted there. 

I used an iStencil for this card - its called Winter Striped Tree. Its such a beautiful stencil. I used two shades of green, but it dos not really show. Sprinkled Brushos on it and let it dry. Added the sentiment - its from my all time favorite Christmas stamp set by STAMPlorations.

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

Moderne Weihnachtsbäume, das sieht richtig faszinierend aus!! Deine Karte hat ein wenig etwas von diesen Bildern mit optischer Täuschung. Wenn man auf einen bestimmten Punkt im Bild schaut, tut sich drumherum etwas ... (kann natürlich auch am Flackern meines Bildschirmes liegen .. *grins*).
LG Gundi

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
