Stamp Connection #45

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 I picked the requirements:
"Something new - but purchased a long time ago"
otherwise called ancient NBUS...

I have soooooo many unused stamps, it's downright embarrassing...those birds I think I bought on my very first stamp convention I went to - I think they are from Sparkle N Sprinkle, if I remember correctly. I don't think they still carry them. Finally inked up. There is nothing better than a good challenge.... even if it is my own.
The road is Washi tape and the sentiment is by Rubbernecker.
Colored with Inktense, what else...?

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Fabulous, fun and perfect for the challenge . I didn't know you could get washi tape like that. Thanks for joining The Library.

Solch ein Washi-Tape habe ich ja noch nirgends gesehen! Aber es passt hervorragend zu diesen wunderbaren Vögeln. Hoffentlich kommt kein Auto angebraust und verschreckt sie!
Wunderschön ist auch wieder diese Karte.
Liebe Grüße

Das muss Dir gar nicht peinlich sein, so geht es wohl jedem Bastler. Eine liebe Freundin sagte letztens zu mir, ich habe so viel Zeug, ich müsste 300 Jahre werden, um alles zu verbasteln und mit ihm zu basteln. Und ich sagte, 300 Jahre sind sehr eng bemessen ... ;-)
Aber irgendwie finden sie dann doch ans Licht der Welt und vielleicht sollte es so sein, denn Dein Kärtchen ist köstlich!!!

Love the humor in it, Cornelia, plus your Inktense pencil coloring is great.
marilyn said…
Great the birdies as they make me smile! We need more of that... BTW, what does NBUS stand for?
Mac Mable said…
I so laughed out loud at the sentiment and what a fun card X

You really have this avian thing down pat. After drooling over it on IG, thought I'd show my appreciation of this fabulous card on your blog. The birds are yellow, so already I was happy but the road design and that wonderful sentiment made me ecstatic.

Well ain't that the perfect washi?!? No kidding, ancient NBUS. I've got plenty! Love your take on "why'd the chicken..."
Anita in France said…
What a riot, Cornelia ... and so fun ... love the humour! Hugs, Anita :)
Kim Heggins said…

ElizStewart said…
Cornelia... I am laughing, laughing, laughing... both at your post (I can relate) and your card (which I love!).

This is amazing! Love those chickens, and paired with the road washi is genius! (insert applause here)

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
