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!

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
