Katzelkraft - Never Feed The Monkeys

Hi Everyone,
It's Katzelkraft time!

I used the monkey from the set Les Jungles. the stencil is an iStencil and the sentiment is from Dylusions.

Les Jungles - Rubber stamp - French Style

Isn't that a fantastic set? 

If you feel the urge to buy it you can also order it on the US from those companies: Topflight StampsFrantic Stamper or Lost Coast Designs)

I started with stamping the sentiment first. I colored the monkey with Inkense pencils and Stabilo markers. I lightly sponged the stencil, which I had masked and only used the sphere. I did not mask the monkey - not necessary with that light sponging. I did mask the sentiment. Added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom.

Happy Stamping!

Das ist wohl wahr!!! Manchmal kommt man sich wirklich wie im Zoo oder Kindergarten vor, nicht wie im realen Leben.
Wer ist wohl der Affe in diesem (Welt-)Zoo???
Ich wüsste einige, die sich dieses Tier teilen könnten.
Liebe Grüße

I don't know about your monkeys but mine are total nutcases. Anyway, this is the perfect card for my life right now. No tragedies, just crazy. Love the coloring of course but really love your design elements. So cool.
Great stencil background for that nutty monkey! A fun card design.

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
