Stamp Connection #12

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 eleventh transatlantic get-together!

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

She picked "create your own background using small stamps".

I took  that gorgeous W&W set My Precious, which has all those pretty little gems. I stamped them onto water color card stock and heat embossed them in white. I water colored them in and water colored the background. Added the big FRIEND - die cut it twice. Once with aqua paper and once with hot pink fun foam. The precious is heat embossed in white and cut at an angle for more interest.

I also added some Wink of Stella, but it does not show on the photo.

Linking up with:

And now I have a second card to share - I did not want to make a second post today.

I had to borrow those Taylored Expression dies from my sister, since my stash is curiously devoid of  anything Taylored Expression.... All the other stamps are by Ellen Hutson. I am playing with the current Ellen Hudson mix -up challenge. The colors I got from Just Add Ink. So pretty - I always love grey and yellow together!

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Diamanten sind nicht so mein Ding (ich mag kein Bling-bling ..*lach*), aber dafür mag ich Karte Nummer zwei um so mehr. Diese Farbkombi grau-gelb ist einfach nur schön!!!
LG Gundi

ich hätte niemals gedacht, dass du sooooo viele dieser wertvollen Steinchen deine Freunde nennst *hihi*
Klasse gemacht, vor allem weil der Hintergrund nicht so ganz einheitlich erscheint.
Grau und gelb sehen immer edel aus, genau so, wie deine Karte.
Liebe Grüße

You and Tanya clearly have a good thing going. Love your blinged out background, bet is glows in real life. Clever sentiment, as well. You've picked my all time favorite color combo for the Mix-It Up challenge. And what an amazing card you've made. Sadly, I too am sans Taylored Expression products. You're so lucky to have a person who had some.

Yes I did two posts today and don't like doing that either! Such a fabulous first card, so colourful and a fantastic background with your small stamps. The card so fits the challenges but I guess that's no accident, just talent x I love the colours of yellow and grey together, so classy and so effective as is your stunning card x

Those gems positively glow against that lovely colourwash background, Cornelia ... and what a gorgeous wreath ... fabulous dimension and such a yummy colour combo! Hugs, Anita :)

Once again, you and Tanja are delighting us with your trans-Atlantic challenges! Crushing all over your gems background; a lovely way to let a friend know how precious and valued they are. So glad you shared this in the Inkspiration rock-theme gallery! Your second: oh my! Your grey/yellow is gorgeous! Marvelous Mother's Day card (and a reminder than I'd best get after creating mine!)
Dana said…
Fabulous cards!! Great idea to get together across the miles!!! Really love your stamped background and you colored it fabulously!! Thanks for playing along with us at the Pinterest Inspired Challenge!!!

Both are delightful cards and excellent takes on the challenges, Cornelia! Thank you so much for joining in on our Rerun Challenge. :-)

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
