Let's get started!

I decided to do my blog in the english language so that you ladies in the United States can understand it!

First of all a tiny bit of me:
I have started stamping about 9 month ago. I was offered a scrapbooking lesson as a birthday present of a girlfriend of mine. I did not convince me but the shop offering the lesson was also offering stamps. I saw the beautiful cards made of stamps and then I discoverd "Bella". I was instantly fallen in love. This is how it started.

Gradually I purchased the necessary material including paper, stamps, ink, embellisment, etc.

For my 40th birthday two weeks ago I got a lot of stamping stuff from my husband, parents and friends. A German Stampin' up demonstrator made a virtuell "party" for my where all my friends could order something from my wish list...

This ist what I got. It feels like heaven!

I think I can quite work with that. I have now approx. 70 copic markers and a cuttlebug!

As a got so many stamps from my friends I decided to make each of them a card produced with theirs stamps to say THANK YOU! (Thank God that no one offered me a Christmas set!)

And here are the first results:
I used the stamps Happy Hearts from Stampin' up, Stampin' up cardstock and paper from Tilda. The hearts are embellised with Fun Flock and Stickles (you can hardly see it on the photo).

This is the next one:
I used the stamps Bold Butterfly from Stampin' up and embossed the flower with the cuttlebug coloured it with an ink pad. Of course I embellised the card with Stickles and Fun Flock.

And another one:

Here I cut out hearts with the scalloped flower, embossed them with the cuttlebug and coloured them with chalk and Stickles.

And last but not least:

This is the stamping set Simply Said using Vers Marker, blue ink, ribbons and Stickles.

This is what I did so far for this project. There were others in the interim!
