Stamp Connection #16

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 sixteenth transatlantic get-together!

This time it was Tanja's turn to pick the requirements:
use Brushos (or similar pigment powders)




And to make things more exciting Tanja invited Loll Thompson from Stamping with Loll to play along with us! Loll is an amazing designer I am sure you all have seen her brilliant work! Thanks Loll, for being part of our little endeavor!

So I pulled out my Brushos. Staped a background stamp (ancient Stampin' up) on water color paper and heat embossed in white. Added Brushos and spritzed with water. Let it dry. Added the sentiment (die by STAMPlorations) and the bird (die cut) and the "Happy" - also STAMPlorations.



Of course I could not resist to add a googly eye. 


Lets check out Loll's and  Tanja's artwork!

Linking up with:
CASual Friday - Time to color
Seize the Birthday - anything birthday
CAS Mix-up - see below - used water as my spray for the Brushos
Steckenpferdchen - aquarell




Happy Stamping!

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

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
