Katzelkraft - First Coffee

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. 


My stamp supplies:


I first stamped the coffee cup, masked it and added the cat. I used Inktense pencils for coloring. Added  the sweet little mouse from the Les Chats Russes set. Used Brushos to make the floor. Added a strip of wood paper on the side. 


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

Happy Stamping!

So Suzy Stamps Event - Color your Life with Catherine Pooler

Hi Everyone,

today is a special day! We are celebrating our collaboration with Catherine Pooler in the So Suzy store, since we now carry her fabulous inks and a few other items, like stencils.


I am a big fan of those inks and often use them for my cards. They are very juicy and give you great coverage. But they also make for crisp impressions. They don't bleed and you can use the black with watercolors as well as Copics. 

For this card I stayed with simple stamping - a few taps of your stamp on the ink pad, stamp and you are done!


I used photo paper for this card. I first stamped the solid wispy chrysanthemum with Tiara yellow. Then I added the wispy outline chrysanthemum with Black Jack and the mini spray as well as the regular spray


I stamped the birthday sentiment and heat embossed it in white. Added a strip of patterned paper below.

Twofer Card Challenge #9

 Hi Everyone,

its time to play along with the current Twofer challenge. I almost didn't make it. I am going on vacation in two days and had to make a load of DT cards, but I had to squeeze this one in...

The theme is LEAVES.



My first card:


Made a birthday card with a Brusho background and that pretty leave die facing outwards. The sentiment is by Avery Elle. No idea by whom the die is.


  My second card:
Went with Halloween, what else would be a good option right now?

Had the leaves facing inward. Used rainbow paper as background  - a real time saver. Added some stamps (Teresa Collins, We R Memory Keepers) and a rat punch border (Martha Stewart)


This challenge just makes me happy!

Happy Twofing!

So Suzy Challenge September/October

Hi Everyone,

onto a new challenge at So Suzy and Crackerbox stamps.

No automatic alt text available.


Had to go with Halloween, of course...


My So Suzy Stamps:



I made the background with Distress Oxide Inks.

Stamped everything on it, except the smiling pumpkin, which I stamped on scrap paper, colored with Inktense and cut out. The skeleton I heat embossed in white and added black pen marks to give it a more realistic look. The sentiment I stamped in white and black with a little off-set to make it easier to read.


This challenge runs from the 15th of the month, until the 14th day of the following month. It has a theme, this month it is all holidays, that you need to follow, but you can use any brand of stamps. However, if you do use Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps you double your chances of winning a $25 gift card, which is awarded to a random winner and is announced on the following months challenge post on the 15th. Link up your project and link to the challenge. If you are using social media use the hastag #sosuzystampschallenge

Witchy Halloween

Hi Everyone,

 I had to play along with Less is More -one of my favorite themes - black and white plus one more color. 
In addition I wanted to ink up my new Rubbernecker stamp I won recently at their challenge and I had just received it. Thank you Rubbernecker Stamps I love it!


I masked my card base and sponged distress oxide orange  from the bottom up, so I ended up with an ombre pattern. Stamped the rest with my Misti - you really need one here, as you need to do several impressions, to get good, solid ink coverage. Added the sentiment, also by Rubbernecker, but a different set. Also added some white gel pen accents.
