Stamp Connection #19

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 nineteenth transatlantic get-together!

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:
 and I picked


I have to use those foil papers I bought - they are collecting dust....tsk, tsk, tsk....
I water colored my background, let it dry and foiled the sentiment on it - the stamp is by Neat&Tangled, as is the splatter. Splattered some ink on it as well and added Washi Tape

It really is easy to do. Not sure, why I don't do it more often. I love how it looks. I use some craft glue i have in my stash, not the special glue recommended. It works just fine, as you can see.

Linking up with:
Addicted to CAS - Ombre
My Time to Craft - no layers (not sure if Washi tape counts as layer...)
Craft for the Craig - two colors - pink and purple
Neat&Tangled - CAS
Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

And then I want to add few thank yous here in the order of arrival:
THANK YOU That's Crafty - I won all those fabulous, wonderful sets over at The Craft Stamper last month. They sponsored the challenge - aren't they gorgeous?

Below is Suchi's fabulous fall card - came out of the blue without any occasion! How fun is that - gave me a BIG smile!

Now this card by Conil knocked my socks off - it is SPECTACULAR!!!!! Rainbow, fab layout, CAS - it has it all!

And then a wonderful little treat from my German blogging friend Gundi from Papierelle - a little chocolate Advent calendar  - to shorten the waiting time until Christmas. How sweet! And so pretty with those little Purple onion stamps! Woot, woot - although I don't know if I can refrain from eating the whole thing at once, LOL!

So thank you all - blogland is one wonderful place and I am grateful to be a small part of it and have you as my friends!

Happy Stamping!
