Stamp Connection #36

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 2nd Sunday of the month and this is our ninth transatlantic get-together!

This time it was Tanja's turn to pick the requirements:
April showers bring May Flowers

Whenever I hear the word rain I think of Ryn's gorgeous water drops. Time to pull them out, I thought. Combined them with this beautiful iStencil (see below). Used Catherine Pooler inks for the stencil and Inktense for the drops. I also did some masking and light sponging. The happy die cut is from Cutplorations, the rest is Your Next Stamp.

I made this card with a friend of mine in mind, who got a recent presumptive diagnosis of lung cancer, but the biopsy showed only inflammation. Those drops are symbolizing tears of joy!

Lets not forget to check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

So soft and pretty, Cornelia ... love how you've overlaid the tears of joy on those sweet blooms! What wonderful news for your friend ... they'll be delighted with this beauty! Hugs, Anita :)

Sonnenschein und Regen sind im April an der Tagesordnung. Es fehlt nur noch der Hagelschauer - aber den brauchen wir nicht.
Auch diese Karte gefällt mir wieder sehr gut.
Liebe Grüße

*Gasp*! and WOW! You have, most definitely, outdone yourself. First of all that is one hellava design. Totally gorgeous. And I don't have enough words for the coloring. Let us just say, it is magnificent. So happy I saw this card...it is amazing.

How very gorgeous. I just love the beautiful stencil you used and the raindrops look fabulous with it. This certainly looks like April showers to me, but around here so far it is in the form of snow. Ugh!

Mac Mable said...

Great interpretation of the April Showers bring May Flowers. Fabulous layout and love how you've combined the stamping and the stencilling....Gorgeous x

I'm so glad to read this is a 'tears of joy' card, Cornelia...and how gorgeous it is! The flowers and raindrops really do capture April showers bringing May flowers. We've not yet reached the 'showers' part of Spring yet...still snowing here...
