Topflight Stamps - Lavinia Forest Scene

 Hi Everyone, It's  Topflight Stamps   day!  This week its anything goes. so I decided to play once again with my Lavinia stamps. I am a hugs fan of this company and I have been over the years slowly increasing my stash. So happy to have an occasion to use them! I made a smooshed background. Stamped everything on it. For the trees I did some generational stamping, spritzing the stamp with water. I didn't really like the geese. Should have left them I tried to cover them mostly with the sentiment. Did some additional brushing with distress inks around the edges and the center tree.... It's as so often an almost one layer card. I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting.  See you next week with more  Topflight Stamps  inspiration. And here are the stamp supplies I used:   Fairy Fir Tree ,  Fairy Fir Tree 2 Whimsical Hares , Slender Mushrooms mini Ducks , Darkroom Door sentiment strip Christmas Versafine ink pad , Blender Brushes Linking up with: Simon Says Stamps

GDT for The Male Room Challenge #157

  Hi Everyone, I am delighted to be guest designer at the current Male Room challenge . The theme for this challenge is "Food". Quite a lot of options here. I decided on the set  Basic Veggies  form AALL&Create. I love that one. I stamped it and heat embossed it in black. I doodles  the frame around the turnips. Colored with water colors. The sentiment is also heat embossed and is from an old set by Casual Fridays. I hope I could entice you to play along. After all this is the season of abundant food and festivities! See you in The Male Room ! Happy Stamping and Happy Eating! Linking up with:

Katzelkraft - Checkmate

      Hi Everyone, I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. For this weeks card I wasn't that happy with my first card, so I made a second one with the same stamps, just slightly different layout and different colors. I wonder, which one of them you like better?  Did my usual masking and sponging and colored the figures with water colors. Trimmed the side and added a strip of designer paper. Different color scheme - stayed more in the same color family. Looking at both of them I actually can't really decide which one I like better and why I wasn't so happy with my first try.... The stamps I used are from the following sets: Le Gambit du Roi - KTZ279,  Les Quilles  - KTZ233 ( FRANCE)  The King's Gambit - KTZ279, Les Quilles - KTZ233   (USA) Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration.  Thanks for visiting!

Katzelkraft - The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

     Hi Everyone, I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. For this weeks card I created a wintry forest scene, using of of the trees from the brand new Winter Wonderland set. I inked up the tree (without its bottom trunk) with some ancient Adirondack inks in green and blue and did some generational stamping. I also misted the stamp. In the end I sprayed a bit of glimmer mist onto the card. After it was dry I  inked up the same tree and stamped it twice in front of the other trees, without misting. I cut out the deer from the Winter Scene stamps (didn't want to deal with masking......) and stamped it onto the bottom left. Heat embossed the sentiment and added it with foam tape and a bit of silver thread. In the end I added some Stickles to the trees and ground. The stamps I used are from the following sets: Winter Wonderland  - KTZ280,  Winter Scene  - KTZ197 ( FRANCE)   Winter Wonderland - KTZ280,  Winter Scene  - KTZ197   (USA) Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wedn
