Twofers Challenge #5

Hi Everyone,

here comes once again my last minute projects for the Twofer Card Challenge #5.
The theme is butterfly.
Took some thinking on my part.....


My supplies: 
butterflies: STAMPlorations
sentiment: So Suzy Stamps
congrats die cut: CUTplorations
tiny butterfly die cuts: Memory Box
embossing plate: Papertrey


Not sure if you need much explanation here. I did make myself a stamp from the lacy butterfly die cut and heat embossed it in clear on my sympathy card. I embossed it with Kaleidoscope embossing powder on the congratulations card. So it has that fabulous iridescent shimmer.


Happy Stamping!

Muse Christmas Visions #100

Hi Everyone,

my teamie Chriss made a wonderful Christmas card to spark our imagination over at MCV.


This is her card:


You see I basically went with the flowers. Although a Poinsettia is called a Weihnachtsstern in German, which translates into Christmas star - hence my stars. I first wanted to use gold paper for my sentiment, but then I decided against it and kept it light. Got some gold in the little stars and the Washi tape on the side.

The stars are by Simon Says and the sentiment is from CUTplorations.


Now, since its our 100th challenge we also have a lot pf prizes for you. So come and play along, maybe you will be one of our lucky winners! You still have some time, the linky list closes at 7:59AM on Monday, 5/28.

See you at MCV!

Katzelkraft - The Adventure Begins

Hi Everyone,
It's Katzelkraft time!


For this card I used the Perroquet from the new Katzelkraft release - I guess that mean Parrot in French. this one is a little pirate - not sure if you can see it here... I colored him with Inktense pencils. Added the sentiment from the set  Adventure Begins.

I trimmed the card base and added a strip of patterned paper on the side. Also added some black splatters.

Happy Stamping!

Have a Fin-tastic Day!

Hi Everyone,

a little while ago I won at the Rubbernecker challenge and got myself some wonderful new Rubbernecker stamps. Time to ink them up!!!!


Of course I am also playing in the Rubbernecker challenge - the theme is embossed backgrounds.
I have a lot of embossing folders, but I am usually at a loss of what to do with them. So, this is in fact a real challenge for me. I used blue vellum and an embossing folder. Colored it a bit with Copics and cut some slits to insert my little Rubbernecker fish. Didn't have a suitable Rubbernecker sentiment, so I used one from Your Next Stamp.
Sewed on the vellum/


I also wish you a Fin-tastic day and happy stamping!

Carpe Diem with Katzelkraft

Hi Everyone,
It's Katzelkraft time!


Did you see the new Katzelkraft release??? 
No???? 
You have to check it out - you are in for a treat!

First of all, you can now be the proud owner of a Trash can - so useful, as you already can see....

And all those new animals with their fabulous personalities - a must have in my book...


I used the goose. Aren't they hilarious?!!! The sentiment comes for the new set Carpe Diem - that one has a lot of useful words on it!

I stamped the trash can on a piece of scrap paper and colored it with Inktense pencils and fussy cut it. Separated the lid from the can. Stamped the goose and glued the trash can partially over it. Trimmed my card base and added strips of blue paper at the margins. Heat embossed the sentiment.



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

Happy Stamping!

So Suzy Stamps and Chuck the Squirrel

Hi Everyone,

I am again playing with the new release stamps from April. I love this squirrel stamp, called Chuck the Squirrel and was itching to ink it up....


It goes perfectly well with that snarky sentiment.

This card does not require a tutorial, but I took two pics....


Stamped the squirrel and colored it with Inktense.


Dotted a frame along the card margins and added twine. Also added some ground for the squirrel to stand on...


Isn't he cute?!

You probably know this by now, but just in case you don't.... We have a new feature here at So Suzy's. 
You get a stamp with every order free.
This month it is THIS stamp: 
We also have a sale going on at this month, this includes all Wedding, Mothers Day and Ladies stamps:
