Stamp Connection #27

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's turn to pick the requirements:

Christmas in July

The skiing Santa is from Katzelkraft - isn't he fun? Gave him some water colored background and colored him with Inktense pencils. The sentiment is from the same set. Added an enamel dot for balance - wouldn't want Santa to tumble into the snow ;) I also added some Stickles - gotta add some glitter, right?


Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

BTW - Muse Christmas Visions is in full swing - we have an amazing inspiration card made by Jessica Frost Ballas from All the Sparkle - go and check it out and link up your card!

Happy Stamping!

I love this card! It's just perfect with the watercolour sky and the stark white of the card base for the snow. He's enjoying himself I can tell, flying down that hill. Just used Inktense pencils myself recently. Forgotten how much I love them! xx
Darling skiing Santa, Cornelia! Just love how you did the sky!!

Hahaha ... what a fun skiing Santa, Cornelia ... the shimmer, shine and bright colours are fabulous against all that snowy white ... and what a great sense of movement ... he sure is hurtling down that hill! Hugs, Anita :)

Yes, Christmas definitely equals glitter and no, we wouldn't want Santa to fall off the card. Honestly, this little guy is too, too, funny and cute. Love the goggles (think I told you that on IG) and his expression. Also love the background and sentiment a lot. It amazes me how you manage to make so many cards in such a little time.

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
