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!

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!
Schaut super aus, danke dir für deine Teilnahme bei der Traumfabrik, liebe Grüße Bettina
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.

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

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
