Stamp Connection #28

Hi there,

connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Cornelia from Stempel Spass 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!

Our requirement for this meet-up was:
Tropical

We also have a special guest for you - Maike from Maikreations is joining us for this summer challenge. I already took a peek at her project ... now it's your turn.

  • cut out a Tattered Lace Torn Edge Rectangle from watercolor paper and stamp several of the smaller images from the My Favorite Things Polynesian Paradise set with Versafine (Onyx Black)
  • color the images with Faber-Castell Albrecht-Dürer Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • stamp the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps Many Mini Messages set with Versamark onto a strip of vellum and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • add a strip of burlap underneath and adhere the sentiment strip to the main panel
  • mount the panel onto a scalloped rectangle created using the My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 set and patterned paper from the Kaisercraft Island Escpape paper pad

Now make sure to hop over to see Cornelia's Creation.


Thanks for stopping by. We hope to see you again at the ...

Happy Heart ATC

Hi there,

we are starting a new Mixed Media Challenge on the Happy Little Stampers Blog and this time we would like to see some Tissue Paper on your project:


  • I created some new ATC backgrounds and I explain the process in this previous post
  • afterwards I took some leftover tissue paper from this project and glued it to the ATC using matte medium - I wanted the texture to be extra wrinkled for this reason I crumpled it up first
  • stamp the newsprint from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • use black and white acrylic paint to add some circular marks and some splatters
  • add some color to the edges using a Distress Crayon (Black Soot)
  • stamp the image from the Paper Artsy EKD03 set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) and color it with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • add some highlights and dots with a white gel pen
  • adhere the shape to the ATC and add the sentiment from the Tim Holtz Big Chat sticker set

Thanks for stopping by.

Yours,
