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!

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.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
