Funky Fossil - Home is where the Heart is

Hi Everyone,

I am playing with the new release from Funky Fossil Designs. I used the set Scandi Home for this card. 

I heat embossed the cute little house  and flowers onto bronze shimmer card stock and heat embossed it with WOW Verdigris embossing powder. Added the little heart and "HOME" and heat embossed in white for some contrast. Added white gel pen accents. Heat embossed the bottom half of the sentiment with Verdigris embossing powder onto the black card stock. I mounted the bronze panel onto some matching card stock and assembled everything.

 It shimmers nicely. You can see this better in this picture.

Topflight Stamps - Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day!

Carabelle Studio came out with some wonderful new stamps - including this cute set that I used for my card.

I immediately fell in love with those quirky animals by Carabelle Studio! So I squeezed almost all of them onto my card. I colored them with water brush markers and water brush pens. I used watercolor paper as background.  The sentiment is from Katzelkraft. I trimmed my card base and used green card stock to frame it.

Katzelkraft - Bugs & Insects

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. 
I am addicted to this fun Katzelkraft set Bugs & Insects. I could not put it away... I made a whole card series, which you will see over the next few days. One I already showed you, you can see it HERE

 Here is my first card:

There are so many fun critters on that one:

I masked of a narrow strip at the bottom and on the left. Sponged with distress inks. I stamped the flowers and the centipede. I colored it with water brush markers. Added white gel pen accents.Added Stickles to the flowers. I thought this card can live without a sentiment.....

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

Funky Fossils - You fill my Days with Joy

Hi Everyone!

Even if you don't care about Unicorns (like me) you have to just love those little chubby ones from Funky Fossils Designs. I honestly couldn't resist them. And they are so perfect for Valentine's day or girl birthdays or whatever sweet card you can think of.

Here are all the Chubby Unicorns from the set:

I combined them with the Let's Talk stencil. The sentiment is an ancient one from Papertrey. I colored with markers, water brush pens and  tiny bit of Finetech Mica colors.

And now the good news:
 You will get 15% off all merchandise with code HEART15 from today 2/14 to midnight (British time) on Monday 2/17!

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Happy Easter

Hi Everybody,

Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below.

Our monthly technique theme at Crackerbox Suzy Stamps is MONO COLOR and Easter is one of our discounted themes this month. For the complete list, see below.
So I figured I am going to combine the two.

My stamping supplies:

I colored the bunny and small egg with water brush markers and cut it out. The big egg is a die cut. I trimmed the Kraft card stock and mounted it onto a white card base. Stamped the sentiment. Attached the eggs and bunny to the card. I put foam tape under the head of the bunny to make it a little bit more dimensional. 

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.

Topflight Stamps - Paper Artsy Zinis

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day!

We are showcasing Paper Artsy stamps this week.  Of course I had to go with the Zinis. they are just so cute and quirky!

I used some ancient rainbow paper from my stash. I stamped the little muse hole entry in the upper left hand corner and the Zini cat in the lower right hand corner. I stamped the cat again onto scrap paper and colored it with various markers. I fuzzy cut it and added it to my card. I also stamped the tiny mouse onto scrap card stock, colored it and fuzzy cut it. I added some white gel pen accents. Lastly I decided it looks a bit empty, so I added the stencil. Would have been better to add it beforehand....
