Stamp Connection #17

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:
and I went for use cork or wood

I have this roll of cork at home and it needs to be used......
I took an iStencil and sponged in black ink and then took gold embossing paste and embossed it. let it dry. Added the birthday die cut (STAMPlorations) and die cut it in black and gold metallic paper. Added the ZAPPY (Papertrey) and two gold embellies.

I just love how this came out!

Linking up with:
613 Avenue Create Challenge #189 - Anything Goes
Task for Two Tuesday Challenge #60 - Alles neu (neuer Stencil)

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Wow! Who would have thought cork would work at all, let alone so well! I love the texture of it and with the gold sentiment it's perfect. Feels kinda Hallowe'en-y with the tree branches. Love it! xx

Oh my, the Stencil Queen has struck again. I'm having a "why-didn't-I-think-of that" moment. The gold embossing looks fabulous on the cork. Especially with the black shadowing it. Then, of course, clever you chose the perfect diecut sentiment. This one is a real WOW!.

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
