Stamp Connection # 9

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:
stamping without stamps (excludes the sentiment)

I took my cheap acrylic paints and brayered them onto the card. Took a cork and stamped some dots. Took a little plastic cap and stamped the circles with black gesso. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations - Hope blooms.

That was fun to do and pretty fast - not counting the drying time, of course.

Linking up with:

Shopping our Stash - something new ( used my old acrylics for a for me new background technique)

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Schönen, bunten Hintergrund hast du da gemacht! Warum Stempel kaufen, wenn man Dinge hernehmen kann, die herumliegen... ;)

Love your non-stamped stamped card! The black rings emphasise the colours beautifully!
Das ist mal farbintensiv ;)) und - sowas kannst nur du so !!
Ganz liebe Grüsse Elisabeth
Deborah Frings said…
Wow! Bold, bright and just fab! I'm really impressed what you create with found objects. Great work. xx
Flo said…
Das ist ja eine Geniale Idee!!!
Eigentlich braucht man gar keine Stempel, wenn ich mir deine Karte so anschaue. Man müsste nur im Haushalt nachsehen, da scheinen sich viele Dinge zu verstecken, die man zum Stempeln zweckentfremden könnte.
Liebe Grüße

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
