herd there's a DT call (Stamplorations, PTI MIM)

Managed to pry myself off the couch and away from the cookies (eating them now) to create a card for the Stamplorations challenge and DT call.  Read more about it here.

I think I'll always love the Papertrey Ink On the Farm stamp set and dies.  I must be a farm girl at heart.  And I can never get enough of punny sentiments.  Have a look.

Used Distress Inks for the stamping.  Inked the sun with three different yellow/oranges and the hills with two greens.  Misted the stamp with water and stamped over the inked image again.  Love how the water reacts with the ink and adds such dimension.  The herd is die cut from black CS.

I'm also joining the end-of-the-year fun at Papertrey Ink's A la Carte MIM challenge.  I used "#106 Two-toned stamped flowers technique" shared by Melissa P.

As for the cookies... they made it to the neighbors on time...

And to our table...

I sincerely hope you are enjoying the time "zwischen den Jahren" (the days between Christmas and New Years).  We certainly are.

Supplies for herd it's your birthday:
Paper: cardbase Bringmann
Stamps:   PTI
Ink :Distress Inks, Versafine
Tools: die PTI
Other: crochet thread


  1. So FUN! Happy New Year to you, Maria, great getting to know you a bit over the last year!

  2. Good luck with the DT call Maria! Love your bright and fun card - perfect composition and great colours!!

  3. Ha, I love this! I'm also a sucker for a good pun :) The cows look like they're off to morning milking. And those cookies look scrumptious! Hmm, milk and cookies ....

  4. Great stamp set for this 2-tone stamping technique, Maria. Good luck on the DT call. Enjoy those cookies, they look so yummy, don't think they would last very long in my house ;-)

  5. What a fun your card...awesome work!
    happy zwischen den Jahren!

  6. Gorgeous cookies!!! Wow...mouth watering sweetness there! I love the gift bags and your card of course is perfect. I love the cattle line up cowgirl!

  7. I LOVE that stamp set too, and cows happen to be one of my favorite animals, so this card just makes my crafty heart so happy!! Love the cheeriness of it!
    And those cookies look delicious!

  8. Hello dear Maria!
    I love your card! I have that set and you are inspiring me to try using it in a better, prettier way so thank You! and I would gladly exchange my meringues for one of these incredible cookies! YUMMY!!
    I think that "zwischen den Jahren" is a magical time, everything slows down, it forces you to enjoy what matters the most before starting anew! Love it!!
    Happy New Year Maria


  9. Awesome stamping of the background, Maria! Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations. Good luck on the DT call and happy new year!!

  10. Brilliant!! LOVE your herd. Thanks so much for playing along at STAMPlorations xx

  11. Amazing background with your misting techniques!! So much more interesting. Really a great effect. The days between Christmas and New Years are my most favorite of the year ... craziness of Christmas has passed, yet everyone is still at home on vacation. Lots of hanging around and taking it easy. And often being snowed in. Even better for a crafter : )

  12. Congrats on your WIN AND making the Team!! See you soon~

  13. Congrats on your win and making the DT, we are joining together and I am very much looking forward to being on this team with you x

  14. Double whammy! Challenge win and DT gig in one - looking forward to working with you on the STAMPlorations DT :))


Go ahead... make my day!
