Liebe SU Mädels!

Ich bin immer noch von eurem Zuspruch nach meiner Presentation bei unserer Convention in Mainz überwältigt und gerührt! Was 10 Minuten so ausmachen, habe ich mir gar nicht vorstellen können. Jetzt bin ich so unheimlich glücklich, dass ich so viele nette Mädels kennenlernen durfte! Habt vielen Dank für eure freundlichen Kommentare!  Seid gesund (und kreativ  :  )   !  ) bis wir uns in Manchester wiedersehen!

Liebe Grüße,

Cynthia „Stempelwalküre“

Brayered Background with Betsy’s Blossoms

Here is a card that I wanted to show during my „Workshop WOW“ at the convention this weekend and just did not have time to get to do it. I used the scraps I had leftover from making my swaps for the last german Demo-Meeting in Cologne. I made lots of little green „Sigfried the Singing Stamp Monsters“. So I had tons of die cuts from the Bigshot Snowflake.

I brayered over them with „Raspberry Ripple“ ink like I did at the convention.My brayered backrounds begin always with my favorite SU product of them all, „Whisper White“ cardstock! And here is what I came up with! The pictures are not shiny because of bad lighting but because I used the new pigment ink „Stampin‘ Pad  ILLUMINATE“!

That ink pad is GORGEOUS STUFF !!! A must try!!!!
This is SIGI, in case you have not met him yet!


Creativity and Sharing

Here are a few thoughts I had as I was preparing my „Workshop WOW!“ projects for the Stampin‘ Up Convention this weekend in Mainz.
I thought I might share them.

Creativity comes from the most profound place inside each of us. That is probably why we are often so sensitive and protective when comes to our own ideas. Sharing these ideas require the utmost amount of trust.  Not in others, but in ourselves.  It takes courage and practise to share one’s ideas. It can be a little uncomfortable at first, but there are so many good reasons to share, and so few not to.

Have a nice day!



I was so honored to be asked to do a Workshop „WOW“ at the Stampin‘ Up Convention in Mainz this weekend.  It was a moment which will certainly be engraved upon my heart!  I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of the many incredible folks who made this such a wonderful experience.  I was truly overwhelmed by your more than enthusiastic response to my presentation and humbled by your warm and very human embrace.

A kazillion hugs,


p.s. For those of you out there, who are desperately trying to translate the word „Kazillion“. Don’t throw away your dictionary, because you can not find it!  It doesn’t exsist. I JUST MADE IT UP !( It means; many, many more hugs than one could possibly count.)  And for those of you who do not know what a „dictionary“ is. It is a book! You know, paper, a thing with real pages and no buttons to click.  You might find a definition of „dictionary“ if you google it.  If not, you might just ask your parents or grandparents if they still have one.!  (BIG SMILE!)

Here I am with my SU Family.  My „mom“ Maggie and my „grandma“ Jenni.  I think we look more like „Charlie’s Angels“

Angekommen in Mainz!!!!!!

Gerade im Hotel angekommen und schon viele viele Demos kennengelernt. (Nette Mädels aus Lübeck und Hamburg).  In der Hotel Lobby sehe ich schon die schönen Convention Taschen in einem Chevron Muster in Gelb und Vanille. Ich höre lovely English und Französische Akzente gemischt mit Lachen!

Ich freue mich auf morgen!
