Cocktail Time with Funky Fossil Designs

Hi Everyone,

I finally had some time to play with my Funky Fossil Designs supplies again.

 

I used the Happy Hour stencil and sponged with different distress inks. I masked the corners of the Martini glass. Other than that it was just simple sponging. used patterned paper as a frame. The sentiment is from Les Ateliers des Karine.


I am playing along with the Time Out challenge - they want you to use alcohol, LOL!

Happy Stamping!

Topflight Stamps

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day.
For today's post I picked this wonderful stamp  (Grunge Flowers - 3) designed by Melina Dahl for That's Crafty. 
                 

I made the background with my gel plate. I stamped the flower and colored it with water brush pens. I trimmed the background paper, stamped the sentiment. 



 This was super easy! I love the gel plate - you can create lots of backgrounds in little time. It's a lot of fun and you always have some backgrounds available when you need them.

I hope you liked this! See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

Katzelkraft - Dreaming of a White Christmas

 Hi Everyone,

I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. 


I need to make more Christmas cards....I first stamped the penguin. I drew him a Santa hat. I masked the ground, penguin, hat and moon and sponged the background with distress inks. Colored with different media (water brush pens, markers). I added water and white splatters. The sentiment is from Funky Fossil designs (Festive Phrases). Added Washi tape to the bottom.

My stamp supplies:

 Funny Penguins - KTZ239 (FRANCE)

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

Topflight Stamps - Spooky Forest

 Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day! 
We are featuring Halloween cards this week. Just my thing!

                             

I first stamped teh moon in silver and heat embossed it. Probably was not the right way to start, but I got around that mistake. I masked it. I sponged my background. I then stamped all the animals and trees. The dragon I stamped with Staz-On ink, because of the heat embossing. Added white gel pen accents and water/bleach splatters. 


It's Halloweenish enough, right?
I hope you liked this! See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

Another Halloween card - it's just that time of the year!
Using those fabulous Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps for my spooky card.


 I totally love Halloween, so I jumped on this month stamp category (you'll get all Halloween and birthday stamps 20% off)

I first sponged with distress inks. Used this wonderful graveyard stencil by Funky Fossil. Added the Dancing Skeleton and added a matching sentiment. I used a white gel pen for the skeletons.

Guest Designing for 52CCT

Hi Everyone,

I have the honor to be guest designing for 52CCT! It is a fun, year round Christmas challenge. This time its going to be a color challenge for the next two weeks. Although I think they confused Christmas with Halloween....But I did my best!





I used the pretty new set from Funky Fossil called Elegant Ornaments for this CAS card. I first stamped teh bauble and then spritzed with Dylusion spray. Added the sentiment and some embellishments in gold as well as a gold string. To keep the modern vibe I added striped Washi tape at the bottom.


I hope you liked this and perhaps you find time to play along! I really like how this card turned out. And the unusual colors really grew on me!

Happy Stamping!

Funky Fossil Designs - Introducing Whimsy Town

Hi Everyone,

Guess what? There is another new release coming into the shop at Funky Fossil Designs
Today is the fifth and last day of the stamp reveal. We are introducing
"Whimsy Town". 


There are lots of cute little housed on this set - you are going to love them! I made this for one of my son's friends for his birthday - he is building a tiny house right now - taking a break from college. I "adjusted" the sentiment a bit to fit the purpose. The stitched frame is a die form STAMPlorations.



All those charming, quirky houses were hand carved by Donna Grey - she is known for her whimsical and fun stamps! I am so happy she designed another set for Funky Fossil!

You will have to wait until tomorrow to see the entire set.

Saturday will be the release day. There will be five new sets!
Don't forget to visit the DT blogs  for amazing inspiration from those talented girls!


Happy Stamping!
