Stamp Connection #40

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:

I am actually not a fan of the beach I prefer mountains. I get bored, don't like salt water and hate the sand getting into anything.... I guess I am probably pretty along out there with my views....
Nonetheless, I made a beach card.

Decided on a shaker with real sand from somewhere... The beach ball is just a punched out circle that I colored as a ball. The water I created with a an ancient sky stamp from Stampscapes. Added some "shark fins" and a ship - just cut from paper scraps.  I used an MFT stencil for the clouds. For the shaker window I used a stitched die by Simon Says Stamps.

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

toll, dass Du echten Sand für die Schüttelkarte verwendet hast und die Landschaft ist echt schön geworden

Brilliant scene, fabulous detailing, Cornelia ... love the sound of the real sand in the shaker! I guess the sharks might be another reason you're not a beach lover ... tee hee! Hugs, Anita :)

Oh wow! What a great beach card...especially from someone who is not a fan of beaches. Love that the shaker has both the sand and the beachball. Great idea to just let it roll around over that amazing seascape you created. I'm so impressed.

This is a magnificent beach scene card.

Great idea to make the shaker card and the 'sand' and the ball is a cute idea. Laughed at the shark fins too x. Creative and unique card x.

Thanks for linking up with us at the Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge...I'm not a huge fan of the beach either...I don't like getting sand in everything!

Love that you made the sand into a shaker card...did a great job on your beach scene, and the stamping of a sky stamp for you water makes it look quite natural with waves. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and please come back next Monday and see what Trouble Maker, Double Dare and Twisted Sister have up their sleeve for the next challenge.

Using sand for your shaker card was pure genius, Cornelia! Lovely coastal scene. I grew up on the Florida beaches so enjoy all things "beachy". Thank you for joining us at the Double Trouble Challenge.
