Topflight Stamps - Wilfred Walrus

Hi Everyone,

I found this adorable Walrus set in the Topflight Stamps Store. It is from Hobby Arts and I simply had to have it!


I made a mask for the walrus and sponged it. Did some touch up with water brush pens. Masked the walrus and stamped the ice hole. Some more masking and sponging. Stamped the sentiment and the fish. Trimmed the card and added a strip of glitter tape at the bottom.

Katzelkraft - Be Brave

Hi Everyone,

I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. 




My stamp supplies:
 Be Brave - SOLO150Les Dentes - KTZ227 (FRANCE)
 Be Brave - SOLO150, Toothy Animals - KTZ227 (USA)

I first stamped the floor (from Lost Coast Designs), sponged it and then made the rest of the background. I stamped and colored the giraffe and cut it with my Scan'N Cut. I glued it to the background and stamped the sentiment. I used black distress ink to sponge around the sides.


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

Topflight Stamps - Dots to Diamonds Underwater Scene

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day! 
This week's focus is on Dots to Diamonds.



For the background I used a paper pad from Hunky Dory( Hunkydory Dots to Diamonds Paper Pad 1). I first sponged the background  and then added the stencil and sponged some more. I added Hunkydory Diamond Sparkles Gemstones and some Stickles on the top. I stamped the fish and added some "water plants". I used bleach to lighten up the plants.  You can see how beautifully this sparkles a bit better on the photo below. Unfortunately 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 - Mistakes

Hi Everyone,

here is my weekly Katzelkraft post. 


My stamp supplies:
 Adventure Begins - KTZ203, Les Dentes - KTZ227 (FRANCE)
 Adventure Begins - KTZ203, Toothy Animals - KTZ227 (USA)

I used an old background, which I made with my gel plate. I stamped the sorry looking animal (?) and colored it with water brush pens and markers. I used my ScanN'Cut to cut it out and glued it to the background after I stamped the sentiment. I used black distress ink to sponge around the borders.



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

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - 2020

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.

I had some fun with my Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.


So far 2020 has been quite something and Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps expressed that quite accurately with this custom 2020 stamp that you can get in the store. I think it captures the essence of this year. I used the COVID-19 virus as cornerstones and created a frame, filling it with the dot splatter stamp  and grey sponging. I also used the technique of the month - using stamps as frame for this card. 
In case you are wondering about that feisty little dog - it's from a different stamp company (Cats on Appletrees) and not available in the US. I am aware that I shouldn't mix stamp companies, but I simply could not resist ;)




Here are the 20% off stamp sale categories: 
The August card technique is USE STAMPS FOR A FRAME .
Image may contain: text that says 'x o Cracherbor Suzy & Stamps rubberartstamps.com August Sale 20% OFF On stamp categories Babies Dinosaurs Fish No coupon code needed discount will be applied at checkout Free Shipping $45 US Orders $65 International く'

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 (in June its "stencil") 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!
