Stamp Connection #43

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 my turn to pick the requirements:

Fields and Meadows



I used an ancient Stampin up stamp for the background. Did a little sponging. Added the little animals - they are from Cats on Appletrees, a German company. Made the eyes with liquid enamel and cut the apple out of red paper and heat embossed it in clear. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.






Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Watermelon Moon

Hi Everyone,

when I saw the current Male Room challenge I knew immediately I had to play along. Do you fell the same about certain themes? They just speak to you. It took me quite a while to find a "suitable" piece of art, that I knew would work for me. I had actually in the end a whole list available, but I settled for Charlie Harper. I am a huge fan of him.


I just copied his artwork....It is called Watermelon Moon

You can see, he is the better artist....but I am still pleased with it.
I used the cute racoon from a STAMPlorations set called Woodland Friends. I die cut the watermelon with circle dies and the seeds I made with an ancient Martha Stewart punch.

As you can see, I couldn't resist a pun - follow your dreams - those racoons seem to be dreaming of watermelon, ha!

So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps - New Release

Hi Everyone,

the new So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps release is here! For all you Harry Potter fans out there you will be delighted to see that we now have a lot of Harry Potter stamps for you!


Now I am not really big on Harry Potter, but I still managed to create an acceptable card I hope....
I used the Gryffindor coat of arms and the sorting hat poem that goes along with it. I colored the coat of arms with Inktense and Finetec mica watercolors. Cut it out and mounted with with foam tape onto maroon wood grain card stock (Alexandra Renke). the sentiment I heat embossed with WOW gold embossing powder. For the maroon card stock I used a stitched die to cut it in size.

Katzelkraft - The Perfect Day to be Happy

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. I hope this card makes you as happy as it made me!


I decided on the little scarf guy from the Sherlock Holmes set.

But first I stamped the umbrella from the Accessories set and masked it. Stamped little scarf guy and masked him as well. Stamped the sentiment from the Batman set (I cut it apart), too lazy for masking... I then took a Post It strip and masked the borders. Sponged with distress oxide inks. Colored the umbrella and scarf guy with Inktense and added the Waterwall
 Its again a one layer card - my favorite thing to do...


If you feel the urge to buy any Katzelkraft products, you can also order them in the US from those companies: Lost Coast DesignsTopflight Stamps or Frantic Stamper 

Happy Stamping!

Muse Christmas Visions #112

Hi Everyone,

 for the next two weeks Rebecca Yahrling is going to be your Muse at Muse Christmas Visions.




So pretty and so many ways to CASE this.



You see I went along with the CAS theme and the bird. I stenciled the background and used that new eraser technique that I learned recently from Papierelle. So easy and I love how this turns out. You may want to visit her blog, to find you how to do this. She is also having a little linky party and you can play along and win a cute little snowman stamp.
The stencil is from Neat&Tangled, the stamps are by Technique Tuesday. Instead of blue I went with red accents.


Have fun CASEing. I can't wait to see what you will come up with!

So come and play along! You'll have lots of time, the linky list closes at 7:59 AM EST on Monday, November 12th.

See you at MCV!

Here for You with Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a CAS card I made  for Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps:


I used the Peeking Cat for this card. 


I stamped it onto card stock and fussy cut it and colored it a bit.


Added the sentiment and the little paw print, that I heat embossed and die cut. Added it with foam tape. Trimmed the grey card base and adhered it to white card stock.
It is super simple to do.

Guest Designing for CAS Mix Up

Hi Everyone,

I am totally delighted to have been asked to be guest designer at the CAS Mix-Up challenge


Of course I said YES! It is such a cool challenge. The DT supplies ample information about the topic and ones can learn so much! This month topic is quite enticing - it is all about embossing folders. If you are like me, you have a huge supply of them - but rarely used.... I am so glad I had an excuse to put at least one of them in action!


The folder I used here is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I sprinkled Bushos on it and spritzed with water. I then did some embossing folder stamping. I dicut a square window into my card base using a QuicKutz square die. Added the pig (unknown company). The wonky birthday stamp is by So Suzy Stamps. I also added googly eyes to the pig, some white gel pen accents and a little dab of Stickles to the center of the flower.


I  just love how this embossing folder background turned out! Go and pull out your embossing folders - so many techniques to try with them!
