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. 


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!

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:

Stamp Connection #37

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 2rd Sunday of the month and this is our thirty seventh transatlantic get-together!

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:
get inspired by the last book you read



You guessed it right - it was about Octopuses. Highly intelligent and fascinating creatures. I learned so much about them! I really enjoyed reading this book! Well written and informative. If you are interested you can get it HERE. And no I have no affiliations to the author.


I used a Fred Mullett stamp, stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it with different colors of embossing powder. Added the Rising Bubbles from Ryn Tanaka stamps and water colored the background. The sentiment is by Altenew.


I am really happy with how this card came out. First I was not sure if it would land in the garbage....



Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!


Happy Mothers Day!
