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:
Winnie&Walter - Rerun - my Precious - being inspired by Shay's card (below)
Pinterest Inpired - see below

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!)
Hugs~c

Dana said...
