Spooky Hollow Tree

Hi Everyone,

I simply love Halloween and my Spooky Hollow tree die from Memory Box was begging me to be used.....

I die cut the tree, sponged my background and added the two ghosts (unknown company) and the pumpkins (Michaels $1 stamp). Added some white Sharpie accents and the bats (Martha Stewart punch). This sounds quicker than it was putting it all together, but I an so happy with the result!

I did not think it needed a sentiment - it's obviously a Halloween card....

Playing along with:

Alphabet Challenge - P for pumpkin

Snark with So Suzy Stamps!

Hi Everyone,

Snarktoberfest is still going strong and So Suzy Stamps is one of the sponsors. Since So Suzy has a well stocked snark department I figured I'll make good use of it!


My So Suzy supplies: 

I don't have a tutorial - forgot to take some pictures, but there is not much to this anyhow - sprinkled some Brushos (grey) and Color Burst (fuchsia) onto Bristol paper. Sprayed it with water and waited for it to dry. Stamped the Martini Lady with my Misti and the sentiment. 


Added liquid pearls and Stickles to the earring and necklace. Added Washi tape.


Be nice ;) and have a great day - Happy Stamping!

MUSE Christmas Visions

Hi Everyone,

I just came back from a 2 week hiking vacation in Slowenia and it was absolutely gorgeous!!!! But now I finally found some time to make a card - I wanted to let you know the current MUSE Christmas Visions challenge is still on and you might want to play ;)


Our current Muse is Chris Blagrave  -she made such a darling card:


I could not resist to play along with my brand new Cats on Appletrees stamps - my daughter got them for me in Munich. I masked and sponged the background and then stmped those critters. gave them Santa hats and added water drops "snowflakes". The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamps and at the bottom I added some Washi tape.


I hope I could inspire you to play along!

Stampotique Challenge #284

Hi Everyone,

there is a new Stampotique challenge this  week - the theme is "Anything Goes". Now if that is not your favorite, then I don't know....



 I stamped the Large Bouquet onto water color paper and colored it in fall colors. Did a light water color wash around it. The sentiment is heat embossed and raised with foam tape. Added a bow and lots of Wink of Stella to the flowers, although you can't see it in the picture. And of course some splatters.

Please remember you can use any stamps for our challenge and you are allowed to have 2 entries per challenge. From all the current months entries we will draw 2 random winners who will each win a 30.00 gift certificate on the first week of the following month.

Have fun!
Hope to see you at the challenge!

Stamp Connection #30

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 Tanja's turn to pick the requirements:
Halloween



I took my all time favorite Stampin' up set and stamped and masked the pumpkins. I heat embossed them in clear and sponged around in purple using a die cut mask. Added the sentiment (Marta Stewart) and some ancient sticker ants. I was surprised that they still were sticky.....


I also added white Sharpie accents. I just love how this turned out!


Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!



Happy Halloween everyone!

Hi Everyone,
we are having another wonderful blog hop at STAMPlorations and its all about Christmas, yeahhh!!!



Shery designed all those beautiful Typographia sets. Making Christmas cards with those is a snap. They cover most of the card. all you need is a pretty background or some adornments. There is many different types of them - I just have three, but you should check out all of them used by our talented DT or go to the store.



I just added the die cut baubles - I used a sprayed water color background I had lying around to cut two of the and added them on with gold string.


Here I made a quick water color background and added stars, sequins and Washi tape.


I used the negative of the Christmas tree die cut, cut it with a circle die. Added an eyelet and some string and again Washi tape.

My STAMPlorations supplies:
