Skipping Stones Design - Funny Coffee

Hi Everyone,

I am over at the Skipping Stones Design blog today with my card, using this fun set called



There is a lot of great images in this set and really fun sentiments:

I colored the coffee cup with water brush pens and fuzzy cut it. The sentiment on the second cup is from Dandelions Dreams. I stamped the coffee rings.  I then repeatedly stamped the "Happy Birthday" as background in Versamark ink and heat embossed it. Added the "spills" with a Tim Holtz stencil.  Added a thin strip of PP on the bottom.


I hope you liked this! Thanks for visiting!
Happy Stamping!

Urban

Hi Everyone,

I like the theme at Inkspirational - its URBAN.
Time to pull out one of my iStencils....


I first sponged the background and then added the stencil - all with distress inks. 


Then I stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations). I trimmed the sides a tad and added a strip of navy blue card stock


Hope you liked this - happy stenciling!

Guest Designing for CASology

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited to have the opportunity to be GDT at CASology! What an honor!


Take a guess - what do you think the cue word is?????


You got it!

I used a YNS set for this and made myself a stencil from a die. I masked the little bomb and sponged the background. Colored the bomb with Copics and added the sentiment



I had a ton of fun to make this. I am sure you will have a lot of fun joining in!
Can't wait to see what you will create!


Happy LOUD stamping!

Stamp Connection #25

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 25th transatlantic get-together!

We also have the amazingly talented Suchi from Suchi's CardStock joining us.

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:

I choose "FIRE"



Ha, I love to play with fire!

I cut some card stock obliquely and set it on fire, to get those burnt edges. Extinguished it with water - which stains the edges brown - kind of an interesting effect.  Got rid of all the ashes and then applied glue near the edges and foiled it. Glued everything together and added the sentiment. The die cut is by CUTplorations and the little birthday is  Stamplorations - Pets. I also added brown splatters. 






 Lets visit Tanja and Suchi and leave them some love!

I hope you liked my little fire experiment!
Don't try this at home ;)

Spots and Stripes and Muse Christmas Visions

 Hi Everyone,

for the Muse Christmas Visions inspiration you need to scroll down.

I am playing along with Less is more - the challenge is just to my liking! One layer (my favorite) combined with spots and stripes - can't think of anything better!

Made two cards - quite similar. I do like my first one better


My supplies: Dotted circle by Altenew, sentiment Lil Inkers and striped star is a Simon Says die cut. I did inlaid die cutting, to make it one layer.

For my second card I just rearranged everything. I am sure opinions will vary, which one looks better....






Kimberley Wiener is our Muse this month! And I cased her card like this:


Here is Kimberley's card:

You see how I got inspired - or better how I basically copied it.....Took that elegant wreath from Uniko and heat embossed it in green. Sponged distress ink onto the wreath and added those tiny berries. Added the sentiment, some Stickles to the berries and the red yarn. Lastly I sponged a scrap piece of card stock and die cut the Memory Box bird. Mounted him with foam tape.


Hope you'll find time to play along with us this month. 
The linky list will be active until May 28th.

Happy Holiday Card Making!

Congraduations

Hi Everyone,

I got those new dies (unbranded) and have been itching to use them - just love that funky dog, or whatever it is. 


I made the background with a cube stamp from Art gone Wild (ancient). The sentiment is also on the cube. The mortar board I made with an Die-Versions die - just cut off the head that was attached.


Trimmed the card and added a contrasting piece of paper at the bottom.

Bat Mitzvah with Concord and 9th

Hi Everyone,

one of my neighbors is a big fan of my card and she ordered a Bat Mitzvah card from me. I don't do them too often, but thankfully I have some stamps at home for just this occasion.


I used my new Concord and 9th flower stamps and water color paper. Did some masking, as you can see and added the sentiment, which is a combination of Paper Smooches and Impression Obsession. The tiny stars are by Papertrey. I added some black Stickles onto the flower centers (hard to see on the picture) and some sequins.


The colors I got from this stunning mood board by
The Heart Desires - its for the current challenge and of course I am playing along! With colors like those I can't resist!
