Katzelkraft - All is Calm, All is Bright

Hi Everyone, I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. Sorry, it's a Christmas card....but we just had a bit of snow, so it's snowing on my card as well....I really wanted to play along with the current  Christmas Kickstart  challenge. The theme is "Out on a Limb" and there is simply no better stamp than this one! I have not played with those cute cats in a while. I also have not used that pair having fun on a tree branch. I stamped them and made a mask. Brushed around them with blue and a bit of black distress ink. Colored them with alcohol ink markers and added white accents with a Posca pen. I made them some Santa hats.Added white acrylic paint splatters. Stamped the sentiment. A simple one layer card. The stamps I used are from the following sets: Cats on a Wall  - KTZ294,  Christmas Sayings  - KTZ302 (FRANCE) Cats on a Wall   - KTZ294 ,  Christmas Sayings  - KTZ302   (USA) Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration.

Topflight Stamps - Studio Light

 Hi Everyone, This week is all about Studio Light products on the  Topflight blog . It's a Dutch company owned by Marlene. She has terrific products at very reasonable prices. Go and check them out, if you are not familiar with it. I masked off a strip and sponged with distress inks and then put a stencil over my strip and added some pattern to this background. I then stamped the  Berry Branch  stamps on it. Added a sticker sentiment. I had so much fun that I decided to make a second card with more masculine colors. Its quite quick to do anyhow. I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting.  See you next week with more  Topflight Stamps  inspiration.

Guest Designing for the Dream Factory/Traumfabrik

  Hi Everyone, Today I am honored to be guest designing for the current  Traumfabrik/Dream Factory challenge . It's a challenge about  movies and the inspiration will be coming from the movie  MAVKA - H√úTERIN DES WALDES  in English   MAVKA. The Forest Song . This is an Ukranian movie. The DT chose it to  honor this brave country, which continues to fight for its freedom! So you can put anything on your card that had forest and/or its creatures as a theme.  Here is the movie poster - perhaps it inspires you! The trees are from Rubbernecker, with a few selected ones from Lavinia. The cute forest animals are from Cats on Appletrees. Did some brushing for my background. I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting and perhaps you'll find some time to play along with the  Traumfabrik/Dream Factory challenge Happy Stamping! Linking up with:

Katzelkraft - More Foliage

   Hi Everyone, I am continuing with my Katzelkraft flower series. I used the new plant set Foliage. I am very happy with how this turned out The stamps are so pretty! I first stamped the frame and the sentiment and heat embossed them in gold. I used Lavinia Elements ink to stamp the Eucalyptus leaves and used a water brush to move the colors around a bit. Added the remaining leaves in black ink with some generational stamping. Made a quick mask to mask off the frame and brushed around it with the color remaining in the brush to keep it light. Added the dots and glittery gold enamel dots. Trimmed the bottom and added Washi tape (Funky Fossil Designs) to the bottom of the card base and glued my panel on it. The stamps I used are from the following sets: Foliage   -  KTZ310,  Grunge Frames  - KTZ265,    Adventure Begins - KTZ203, (FRANCE) Foliage  - KTZ310, Grunge Frames - KTZ265,  Inspirational Quotes  - KTZ203,   (USA Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Ka
