Topflight Stamps - Mice in Love

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day!



 Valentines Day is not too far off, so I figured I make a card for that day. I just got this funky stamp set from Paper Artsy and I thought those two mice are the perfect pair.
I brayered the background. I colored the mice with Prism markers and fuzzy cut them. Added them to my background.


Here are the stamp supplies I used:

PaperArtsy - Zinski Art 44, Versafine ink, 


Speedball Brayer, Prism Brush Markers

Katzelkraft - Reality Ruins my Life

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. 
I still have not used all the new sets I have.....



This is from the set Les Marins.  KTZ226
I love the worried expression on this guys face. I used a background from my stash. The sentiment I printed on my computer (got it on Pinterest). I colored with water brush markers. Added my favorite embellishment - striped paper on the side.



Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration!

If you feel the urge to buy any Katzelkraft products, you can also order them in the US from those companies: Topflight StampsLost Coast Designs, or Frantic Stamper

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Love Birds

Hi Everybody,

you may already know about this, but we are doing things a bit differently in 2020 at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.  The details you can read below (and it's a worthwhile read, trust me!)


My stamping supplies:

I used craft plastic and heat embossed the birds and sentiment. I used alcohol inks for coloring. As the image is heat embossed, it contains the ink and it does not flow uncontrolled all over the place. I added white gel pen accents. The border I cut with a die from STAMPlorations. Added black splatters.


We have three new designers on the DT and their favorite stamp which will be 50% off for the month of January. Shanna's favorite is the Castle, Melinda's favorite is the flowers in a vase and Nadine is the Psycho and saying. The images are on the web site under Featured Products. 
The other news is you can get $5.00 store credit once a week. Each month we will have several categories on sale for 20% OFF and a technique for that month. All you have to do is make a card with at least one stamp from the sales category and use the technique and 
Vicky will put $5.00 on your store account and leave you a comment that it is done. We can't wait to see your creative work! 

Here are the 20% off stamp sale categories and card techniques.
January - CAS (Clean and Simple) card
Valentine Day

Football- Superbowl

Hi Everybody,

We are doing things a bit differently in 2020 at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.  The details you can read below (and it's a worthwhile read, trust me!)



My stamping supplies:

I did some smooshing with distress inks after I stamped the feather on water color card stock. Added some additional splatters and colored in the feather a bit. Added the sentiment and 3 sequins. I also added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom to make it a bit more interesting. - I am going with our monthly CAS theme (my favorite anyhow).


We have three new designers on the DT and their favorite stamp which will be 50% off for the month of January. Shanna's favorite is the Castle, Melinda's favorite is the flowers in a vase and Nadine is the Psycho and saying. The images are on the web site under Featured Products.

Topflight Stamps - Happy New Year with Zinis

Hi Everyone,

I  hope you had a great New Year  and that the upcoming year will be kind to you and your loved-ones!

I have some great news - I have been asked to be on the Topflight Design Team and since my work situation has greatly improved I couldn't say no. So you will get a weekly Topflight post from me for the next six month on Thursdays - I hope that is something you will look forward to!



To celebrate I choose this quirky little character from Paper Artsy, called Mini Zinis 38. It just makes me happy to look at it! I colored it with water brush pens and cut it out. The background I made with a paper pad from Hunky Dory( Hunkydory Dots to Diamonds Paper Pad 1). I added Hunkydory Diamond Sparkles Gemstones and some Stickles. Some of the dots I left blank. I didn't want to over due it. I wish you could see how beautifully this sparkles. The photo doesn't do it justice. 

I used this paper pad previously, you can see it HERE if you are interested.


Here are the products I used:

Katzelkraft - Happy Moo Year

Hi Everyone,

I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Crafty new Year!
And as luck will have it  it's Wednesday - my Katzelkraft day. 


And that happy cow for the Farm animal set (KTZ208) is just perfect, I thought!
I stamped and colored with watercolors. I used the We R Memory Keepers word punchboard to make the sentiment. Bought that a looooong time ago and had so far not used it...But I think I will use it more often - it's simple (once you figured out how to space the letters closer together than intended)
This is the entire set - so many fun animals on it!



Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration!

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Warm Winter Wishes

Hi Everybody,

I have a winter themed card for you today made with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.


My stamping supplies:

I used that bowl/snowglobe before and kept the mask I made for it. That made this really easy. I stamped the globe, fitted the cork in it with a stamp positioner. Stamped the snowman and masked it. Sponged distress ink around - also made a tiny mask for the reflection. Colored with water brush pens and added the sentiment (Cutplorations die). Splattered water, but it didn't show very well, so I added white gel pen "snowflakes". 


During the month of December all the stamps in the shop are 30% off.
 Copic markers and stencils are 20% off:


Happy Stamping and Happy New Year my friends!

Katzelkraft - Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Merry Christmas  to all of you.
And as luck will have it  it's Wednesday  - my Katzelkraft day. 


I thought that the cozy raccoon KTZ 146 would be perfect for Christmas. I used an old background I made a while ago. I stamped and colored with water brush pens and Stabilo markers. I used a Simon Says die to cut the panel.
I did not think it needed a sentiment.


There are quite a few brand new solo stamps in the store - you may want to check them out!

Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration!
