 Here are my cards:

I used this set:

 This set really is one of my all time favorite Joy Clair sets. Those little cats hanging on a clothe line are just too cute! I stamped them twice . colored them with water brush pens and added teh sentiment and the sun. A simple one-layer card.


Here is my second card:


The Party animal set is absolutely hilarious! I made a mask for the cow and sponged the background. Colored the cows and stamped the sentiment. Voila - another one layer card! those cows partied too much...don't you think so?


Now I hope you are going to have your own little party on this hop! Go, get a drink and enjoy!
Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Helen Gullett

Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps - Swinging Fairy

Hi Everybody,

I am playing with some old and some stamps from Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps.


My stamp supplies:

And here is my little tutorial:


I positioned the stamp in my Misti and lightly stamped it. Used an old mask for the wings (I keep all those masks, saves some time for future projects)


Sponged the background - no need to be blending accurately.


Sponged some darker green on top and stamped the vines and the beach grass.



Masked the sun and sponged a bit around it. Removed the masks.


Found it a bit drab, so I took some distress inks and added some color. Added some shimmer to the sun and the fairy wings (a bit hard to see).
Stamped the sentiment on shimmer paper and cut it apart. Added it to my card.


Very different from my usual "style". I hope that nonetheless you liked it.

Happy Stamping!

Guest Designing for Topflight Stamps Take V

Hi Everybody, 

Cornelia here today with my fifth and last post as guest designer. I had such a great time guest designing. Thank you Donna and Lisa for picking me!
I had my eyes on that gorgeous Visible Image stamp set for a while. I am so happy I could add it to my stash of treasured stamps. 


My supplies:

I first stamped the flowers and masked them. I then took a strip of Post it tape and tore it in half and masked off a strip on the left of my card. I sponged in rainbow colors. Added a bit of Stickles to the flowers and the dots around the flowers. Added the sentiment and two little gemstones.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #231 and a Farewell

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations
For me this is going to be me last inspiration post - I am stepping down from this wonderful team. I have been with STAMPlorations almost from the beginning and have been watching this company grow and prosper. It was a wonderful experience and I will miss it dearly. However work has made my life difficult and I don't know what the future will hold for me. I simply could not commit to another term.


I wanted to say thank you to Shery Russ the owner and mastermind behind STAMPlorations for all her hard work, for having faith in me, supplying me with those wonderful stamps and letting me be part of this!  Extra thanks also to Monika Skinner our hard working blog coordinator!

My stamp supplies:

Thankful for Autumn, Mixed Media Elements

I stamped the pumpkins. Masked them. Smooshed the background. Used some Mixed Media elemnt stamps to color the pumpkins. Trimmed my panel and added a thin strip of black paper. Stamped the sentiment.

Rubber Dance - Textured Mushroom and a Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

sadly this is going to be my last post as Rubber Dance DT member. Life has become too difficult for me, so I decided to step down. I have been really enjoying playing with those wonderfully interesting stamps. Susanne is a great, supportive and generous store owner. Thank you for having me on your team and having trust in my abilities!

I just had to play again with this wonderful Textured Mushroom stamp set. 


This time I decided on a black background.
I started out heat embossing the mushrooms one by one on black card stock. I used ultrafine embossing powder. Make sure you use a powder tool before you heat embowss to not have embossing powder stick where you don't want it to be.

I stamped one of the mushrooms on a scrap piece of black card stock and fuzzy cut it.


I colored the mushrooms with Prismacolor pencils


I used Gamsol for blending the colors. I added white splatters. I added the cut out mushrooms with foam tape. I trimmed the card and added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom.



You have a few more days to play along in our challenge, which goes until the end of the month. 
You'll find it in the Facebook Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge and its those three colors you see below or anything goes with Rubber Dance stamps.

Guest Designing for Topflight Stamps Take IV

Hi Everybody, 

this is my fourth post as guest designer for Topflight Stamps. I am again playing with this new product called Dots to Diamonds. It is a paper pack of 48 high quality cardstock cards with preprinted patterns, that you can adorn with gemstones or Stickles or whatever you have at hand. There are 6 different patterns in every pack. 



In addition, you can purchase those sparkly gems in every color you can imagine.

My supplies:


The rest is pretty easy. I masked the circle of my card and sponged around in rainbow colors. Added mostly gems to the dots, but also a bit of Stickles. And that was all. Can't be easier than that. LOVE all the sparkle!



I hope you liked this. See you next Thursday!

Again I have a little present for you:

If you use code FUNSTAMPING you will get 12% discount at Topflight Stamps!

I will be back next Thursday with my last inspiration!

Katzelkraft - Robot needs a Break

I took an old background from my stash. I stamped the robot and cut him with my Scan'N Cut. The coloring I did with water brush pens and Stabilo markers. The pipe is a Memory Box die - used shimmer card stock paper. I stamped the sentiment.
