Stamp Connection # 8

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 eights transatlantic get-together!

This time it was Tanja's turn to pick the requirements:
Cute Critters + Christmas

I bought this Purple Onion stamp last year and never used it.... time to ink it up! Colored it with pencils and added some glitter to the Santa hat. The hat is from the Crazy Birds addition. It has a good size and fits all sorts of animals. The hoppy sentiment is Stampin' up and the rest is Simon Says.
Added a thin strip of PP and an enamel dot for balance.

I just wanna kiss that frog - who knows what he will turn into?

I love this Stacy Yacula stamp so much I bought it...but, sadly, never inked it. You've inspired me. going to do it, soon. Think you're addition of the Santa hat is brilliant. Such a darling card.

Lol! I love him. My little girl sat and watched The Princess and the Frog today - this made me giggle!! Beautifully coloured and such a clever idea to use the hat from the Crazy Birds. Perfect - Merry Christmas to you!! xx

Your frog is a 'prince' as he is...although, I too, want to give him a kiss, just to be sure! Love this!

Very handsome frog as far as frogs go. Actually your colouring makes him handsome as does his hat. Great card

That is really one of the better frogs and the hat is inspired. Very good. Gotta have that frog. You colored him up perfectly.

So eine witzige Weihnachtskarte! Der Accessoire-Stempel der Crazy Birds passt super zu dem Frosch. Deine Karte war mir im Link-Up für die Stempelküche-Challenge sofort aufgefallen. Leider hatte ich vor, über und nach Weihnachten so viel um die Ohren, dass ich gar nicht mehr zu Kommentieren gekommen bin. Jetzt ist die Challenge längst vorbei, aber ich freu mich trotzdem, dass du mitgemacht hast. :o) Und vielen Dank für deine lieben Kommentare auf meinem Blog.

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
