Stamp Connection #28

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 28th transatlantic get-together!

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

"tropical"

We also have a guest with us this time and it is Maike from Maikreations - her cards are cute and colorful and executed with perfection! On top of that  - they make you smile! Welcome Maike - great to have you with us!



I used the pretty Paradise stamp set from Uniko for my card. Colored it with Inktense pencils. Added a strip of my favorite PP at the bottom and of course stamped the sentiment.







Lets check out Maike's and Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Word Up Weekend with Stampotique

Hi Everyone,

Stampotique is having Word Up Weekend over at Facebook - showing cards with words on them. Thankfully pretty all my cards have words on them!


You can see, I am smitten with that majestic tree. I used it recently HERE. It is such a beautiful stamp! I stamped the birds - the are called Birdy up and water colored them with brush markers. Used a 1 inch punch  and arranged them on the tree. Took the tree stamp and stamped over them and then glued the inchies to the tree, lining up the branches. Stamped the sentiment. Added hot pink card stock as base layer.


As a reminder - the current challenge is still going for another week - its all about inchies - you don't need to use Stampotique stamps to play along. Just come and have fun!

Happy Weekend!

Guest Designing for The Heart Desires Challenge - Midpost Reminder

Hi Everyone,

 The Heart Desires challenge is still in full swing!
You probably have already seen this months' amazing mood board - it for sure will stimulate your imagination . I just love the colors. For my second card I went with the flamingos.
They are from MFT. I used watercolor to color them. 


The relax is by SSS and I used a polka dotted embossing folder - after all there are some polka dots on the mood board. Couldn't ignore those...



Added enamel dots for balance and to get more of the colors from the board.




I hope you'll find time to play along!

Happy Stamping!
