STAMPlorations Inspiration Project #24

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day again at STAMPlorations

Again our wonderful DT made some beautiful cards to entice you playing with your stamps or stencils - STAMPlorations or otherwise. And perhaps I can also inspire you to play along with us!


I did the no line water coloring technique here - there a lots of youtube videos, in case you want to try this out. Its fun and almost looks like you did this all by yourself.... ;)

I used the gorgeous Blooming Buds set designed by our very own DT girl Deepti.

Big Hi for Sparkle and Shine

Hi Everyone,

trying to sneak my card in at the last minute over at Sparkle and Shine, where Winnie & Walter are sponsoring the challenge.


Its a sketch challenge - see below. Patterend paper is not my strength, so I stayed with colored card stock. Used my W&W supplies - the big Hi die and stamps from the set "True". Heat embossed the facetted circle with clear embossing powder. Added Washi tape.


I cut the "hi" twice - once using card stock and once using orange fun foam to give it some dimension. I turned the dot from the hi around, so you see the fun foam rather than the card stock. I thought it adds some fun element to the card.



1 1/2 hours before Mr. Linky expires - yeahh, I made it!

Baby Card

Hi Everyone,

one of my neighbors just had a baby girl - so I needed to make a card for her. Besides that I wanted to play in the a2z scrapbooking challenge for this month, which is all about new beginnings.



I used that cute Hero Arts Operation Write Home stamp set Lil Hoot. The ombre background on the round circle I made with another Hero Arts background stamp - I won that from their birthday bash - also got that beautiful die from my win - THANK YOU a2zscrapbooking store - you are fabulous!


I paper pieced the elephant using scrap pieces of card stock.  Used my white Sharpie for the eyes and tusk and Copic for mama elephant's toe nails - gotta have a pedicure.... The sentiment is Paper Smooches - A Little Lovin. Silver embroidery thread, Washi tape and sequins. I like it!

STAMPlorations Inspiration Project #23

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day again at STAMPlorations

Again our wonderful DT made some beautiful cards to entice you playing with your stamps or stencils - STAMPlorations or otherwise. And perhaps I can also inspire you to play along with us!

I used the large brushstroke stamp and two different blue tones - the lightest color is the second stamp off the adjacent darker one. The poinsettia I stamped on vellum and heat embossed it. I fuzzy cut it , added silver thread and sequins.

Stamp Connection #4

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 forth transatlantic get-together!

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

One Layer & Stencil

just my thing - thanks Tanja!

And here is my card:



I bet Tanja did not think of Christmas when she suggested that theme - but who knows - I am curious! But to be honest, I did not think about it right away either - it just happened.....The truth of the matter is - I wanted to play in the One Layer Christmas card challenge - green is wanted there. 


I used an iStencil for this card - its called Winter Striped Tree. Its such a beautiful stencil. I used two shades of green, but it dos not really show. Sprinkled Brushos on it and let it dry. Added the sentiment - its from my all time favorite Christmas stamp set by STAMPlorations.






Now aren't you curious what Tanja did - I for sure are - lets go and visit her!
