Good Friends are like Stars

Hi Everyone,

I want to show you another card with the beautiful Stampotique new release stamps.

Let me introduce you to Queenie. Ain't she sweet? I paired her up with the animal skull. Also brand new.  I colored them with Inktense. I just love that skull. I need to use it again...
The wonderful sentiment is from Quotes 2 - new release.

I added Washi tape at the bottom and a black ribbon.

Happy Stamping!

Oh Frap!

Hi Everyone,

a very quick card post for today - even shorter than my usual....

I wanted to play in a couple of challenges and that Katzelkraft monster gave me a stern look. I inked up his colleague, but had ignored him....no more!!!

The cute little coffee cups are from STAMPlorations, as is the die cut sentiment. Colored with Inktense and a white gel pen.

You want to have the monster as well?

Twofer Challenge #1

Hi Everyone,

my blogging friends started a new challenge and of course I have to play along!!!!
I am sure you all know about the TWOFER challenge - the master mind behind it is the beloved Darnell from djcardcreations.

So the idea is to take one stamp of die and make two different cards. The current theme is FEATHER.

The feather I used is from an ancient Hero Arts set. For the black card I heat embossed it in gold, added a large feather as well and colored it with Fine Tec mica water colors. The sentiment is by Papertrey. Added gold splatters and Washi tape at the bottom.

The white card is super simple as you can see. The same feather. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations and the cute little bird is another ancient stamp from a company I believe no longer exists. And to get Darnell excited it was an NBUS stamp! I did add some subtle grey shading to to feather.

Here are a bit bigger pictures.

What a FUN challenge! I am sure I'll be a regular there!

Happy Stamping!

Stampotique Roadrunner

Hi Everyone,

I have not posted much about the new Stampotique stamp release - I am so sorry! My bad....
The stamps are gorgeous - go and check them out!

As you probably can guess, that roadrunner stole my heart. Any bird pretty much does that.

The cactus row is a close second. And both are just made for each other, don't you agree?
The sentiment you can find HERE.
This is a one layer card, colored with Inktense pencils. Added white gel pen accents.

Happy Stamping!

Muse Christmas Visions #91 and CASology with Fusion

Hi Everyone,

I have a Twofer for you today.
First my MCV card:

I am not sure if you know, that Muse Christmas Visions has started for this year! Any regrets about starting too late last year with your Christmas card production? If so MCV is for you! Make a card every week and you'll be all set!

This time Kimberly Wiener is our Muse and she made a very cute card:

How did I get inspired? Well, basically with the cute animals and the peeking idea. 
let us know, what inspires you!

My supplies:
all stamps by Paper Smooches

My second card:

I wanted to get this into the CASology challenge, before it closes.

Used of the famous Katzelkraft rats and gave it a mug from CUTplorations. The sentiment is also from CUTplorations. Added some Washi tape and little punched out hearts. The rat is colored with Inktense pencils.
You can find it in the us HERE or HERE or you get them directly from France HERE

Happy Stamping!

Stamp Connection #33

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 my turn to pick the requirements:
Thank you card with embossing folder

My blogging friend Elisabeth from aufspapiergebracht send me this gorgeous embossing folder for Christmas. It is from the Renke Manufaktur - they have amazing stamping supplies - you should check them out.
Here is a detail view:

That folder is a dream and of course it needed to be made into a thank you card. The letters are by Ellen Hutson and the tree is from Neat&Tangled. Added a brad and some red thread.

I am just in love with this card. I think I need to make some more...

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!
