Rubber Dance - Hoppy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I had so much fun playing around with my new Rubber Dance stamps!



My stamp supplies:

I stamped the bunny on Kraft card stock. Added the carrots with a bit of masking and colored with Inktense pencils. For the white I used white acrylic paint. Stamped the sentiment. Stamped the small carrots on scrap paper, colored them and added them to the card with some foam tape and added Nymo thread.


That rabbit would also be perfect for Easter cards.

Hope you like this.

Don't forget our challenge is still going until the end of the month. Play along, if you find time!
It runs all month long over in the Facebook Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge and its  those three colors you see below or anything goes with Rubber Dance stamps.

No photo description available.

Happy Rubber Dancing!

The Back Stories with Darnell and Cornelia - #2 Liane



LIANE
Every dozen years the Topzwellers poked their heads through the loamy soil
near the entrance to the baseball park. As Liane had turned 12 during the last
phase, it was her first time as lookout.
Nervously, she looked to her left which caused her left eyeball to pop out
of her head. It was like a turn signal or, if she wasn’t moving, like a zoom
lens.
When she saw that the target was already in place and all systems were
GO, her little arms locked into the straight position, fingers splayed, and
her underbelly turned yellow.
Keeping her position trained on the target, Liane gingerly touched each of
the others with her tail, a signal that they could emerge. She knew that
when they were all in position, this would be the greatest night of her life.

Stamp Connection #48

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

This time it was Tanja's turn to pick the requirements:
unicorn and rainbow



I first thought I have no unicorns and then I remembered, that in fact I do have one, a real fun one from AALL&Create. Time to make it see the light of the day!

I stamped it and sponged the background with pencil dust (Memory Box stencil). Used an erase, where it interfered with the unicorn. Colored the unicorn. Added the sentiment and some Washi tape as well as a left over strip of sprayed  paper.







Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Katzelkraft - Never Feed the Monkeys

Hi Everyone,

it's Katzelkraft Wednesday!

I used the Yoga Monkey from the Farm Animal set for this card. I masked him and stamped the macaroons from the set Five O'Clock on the left. I stamped the extra  macaroon on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out.  I colored everything with Inktense and added a snarky sentiment from Dylusions (Laugh till you leak). You can also get this HERE

 




Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration!

Christmas Moose with iStencil

Hi Everyone,

I need more Christmas cards, I am way behind in my production. So Jingle Belles comes to the rescue. They want to see three of something.


So I pulled out my trusty iStencil. It is called Winter Striped Tree and my new Lost Coast Design stamps


I colored the reindeer eyes with a white gel pen and added Washi tape for the sentiment. Also added 3 gems.


So there is a lot of threes here - 3 trees, 3 reindeer and 3 gems. That should make the Jingle Belles happy ;)

Day of the Month Card Club - National Dandelion Day

Hi Everyone,



It's "National Dandelion Day" day, which is celebrated on April 5th. 
Many people consider dandelions weeds, but they are actually edible and are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and D. They are delicious in soups and salads. They also bloom early, giving bees and insects well needed nourishment after the long winter. 


The technique for this card I learned from Heindesign. It is quite simple. Tear some post it notes and mask a square. Take acrylic paint and paint stripes onto the masked area and then spread the paint with a sponge a bit so you can still see the original stripes, but not so much as to smear all the paint together. Let it dry. Dab white acrylic paint onto your stamp and stamp. Clean off the stamp immediately after use.

The sentiment is by STAMPlorations.


Now I hope you will have time to 

I am counting on you! You have until the end of the month (4/31) to do so.

This is a voting challenge - the winner will be determined by vote. Everybody can vote, even if you didn't play along. Voting starts on the first of the following month - June first. 
The 3 participants with the most votes will win. 
The winners will be showcased on the 5th of each month and the new challenge will start each month on the seventh.
And to make it more fun and appealing it would be great if you could comment on at least 3 other participants - perhaps you'll find some new friends that way. 


There is always a reason to celebrate!

Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps - Chrysanthemum Birthday Wishes

Hi Everybody,
It's Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps anniversary month and that is a good reason to celebrate. And you know what that means, right? Generous discounts, a possibility to win and FREE SHIPPING! All the details are listed below.


My Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps:


I recently learned a new technique - the idea is from Hein Design and thought I share that with you here.


You take some dark card stock and mask it with Post it tape or whatever you have at hand. Take some acrylic paints and a small sponge and sponge the paint in alternating stripes onto the card stock.


Make sure the stripes overlap.


Remove the tape and wait for the paint to dry. It doesn't take long.


Use white acrylic pain, dab it onto your stamps of choice and stamp. Make sure to clean off the stamps right way with a toothbrush and water, to not have the paint dry on your stamps.

I liked it so much, I made a second card using different colors.



And here are the good news:

- Free flower stamp over a $50.00 order (after discounts)
--Free shipping over $45.00 US, $65.00 International
--Every order gets put in a drawing for a Reg. MISTI, or a Mini MISTI, or a $50.00 gift cert. at the end of the month. There will be 3 winners.
--BoBunny paper, buy 1 get 1 free
