Stamp Connection #29

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 29th transatlantic get-together!

This time we have the wonderful TaeEun joining us as a guest. I am sure you already know her beautiful creations that she shares on her Rainbow in November Blog.

Our requirement for this meet-up was:
"decorate the back of your card"

... and this is what the card looks like when folded open

  • apply Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke) through the UmWowStudio Wheat stencil not only on the front but also on the back of the cardbase
  • glue a strip of patterned paper to the left side of the whole cardbase
  • from this step onwards I'll be only working on the front of the card
  • add some splatters with Distress Paint (Cracked Pistachio)
  • stamp the little dragon from the Sweet Stamp Shop Dragon set with Versafine (Smokey Gray) and color the image with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils and Zest-it
  • add a tiny dot detail with Staedtler Fineliners
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versamark onto a strip of black cardstock and heat-emboss ii with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • add a strip of DIY patterned paper underneath - I used the My Favorite Things Diagonal Stripes and Versafine Onyx Black to create this striped black-and-white paper
  • lay both strips over a torn strip of vellum
  • cut one of the leaves from the Paper Smooches Foliage 1 set from vellum as well and add the dragon on top of them
  • add some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins (Sparkling Clear 4mm and 6mm) as final embellishment

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

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



  1. Ach, wie suess! Super Umsetzung unserer challenge! Das hashtag - koestlich!

  2. The little dragon is super sweet! Love the vellum leaves and the torn panel as a mat for the sentiment! The gray stenciled pattern is a great one to have it on the back side too!

  3. I really like this - the softly stencilled background is fab. And I adore that cute little dragon! xx
