Keep Calm

Hi Everyone,

I am in full blown Christmas card mood.......
and here is a very quick CAS card with that funky Katzelkraft stamp Big Cat #9 that fits just about any occasion....


I intentionally left the background white (and its quicker that way anyhow). I colored the cat with Inktense pencils and gave it a hat (Tim Holtz) - did some masking for that. The sentiment is also from Katzelkraft, its from the Keep Calm Set.

 I used Stickles on the hat brim.



Are you going to make some Holiday cards this weekend?

Happy Stamping!

There's that cat again...looking like he had too much cheer the night before. But he's so festive with his vivid hat and eyes. The more I see of him, the more I love him.

Diese Katzen sprechen einfach für sich!!!
Diese hier schaut sooo witzig um die Ecke, dass jedem, die diese Karte sieht, der Tag gerettet ist, egal wie doof er angefangen hat.
Und die Nikolausmütze sieht aus, als wäre sie genau für dieses Tier geschaffen.
Klasse!!!
Liebe Sonntagsgrüße
It is just perfect, no blended background needed! Love it ;)
Ha ha! This made me smile.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
