Stamp Connection #30

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 Tanja's turn to pick the requirements:
Halloween



I took my all time favorite Stampin' up set and stamped and masked the pumpkins. I heat embossed them in clear and sponged around in purple using a die cut mask. Added the sentiment (Marta Stewart) and some ancient sticker ants. I was surprised that they still were sticky.....


I also added white Sharpie accents. I just love how this turned out!


Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!



Happy Halloween everyone!

LOVE jack-o-lanterns that look joyously evil. These two really meet that requirement and the multi-color stamping works great. You even got to use those ants. The perfect compliment to these gourds. The sentiment is perfection.
Hello Cornelia: I saw your card on the CAS on Friday challenge and I had to tell you it's amazing, love the deep, rich background for your awesome pumpkins, they look fabulous.
Love the cute ants, very sweet detail.
Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.

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....)
