Katzelkraft Rat Hole

Hi Everyone,

It's Katzelkraft time!
Playing with my favorite rats and a hole...... A rathole, if you will!

This card required a bit of masking. The rest was easy - Inktense pencils. The letters are die cuts (Papertrey) and the tiny sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

You think you need those stamps?

You can get them directly from France: ratspaper hole

Happy Masking!

Ohh my god Cornelia you totally crack me up, your sense of humour is so good. I love it, just love it. I have the rats, just wish I could think on my feet as quick as you. This is top class, brilliant.

Cute rats and I love the hole stamp. Thanks for joining the fun at Lost Coast Designs Anything Goes challenge. Hugz
Hahaha!! Oh, I adore this rats!!! I wouldn't want them crawling anywhere near or inside my house but, I can't help but smile at these group of pals just living it up in a hole somewhere!!!!!
Fabulous coloring Cornelia and extraordinary masking!! I must go check out that hole image, I've never seen it on Katzelkraft, but then again, maybe I haven't look carefully enough.
Thank you for sharing.

Love it, I need to pull out my torn stamp :)
How cute! I often say that sentiment myself when I forget things. This design is sure to bring smiles!

Oh. My. God. Pure, unadulterated genius. What a wonderful family in their rathole home. I am suitably impressed with your masking and coloring. Bet these rats smell the same winner I do.

Never thought I would need rat stamps, but these have such personality, I love 'em! Excellent masking! Great card!
Diese Karte ist mal wieder ein absolutes Sahnestück! Das könnte auch ein Kinoplakat sein.
Ich bin total begeistert, obwohl ich Ratten nicht wirklich mag. ;)
Liebe Grüße

Love that torn stamp, perfect home for those rats. Have to say I'm not usually a fan of the furry quadrupeds, they make rather a mess in our hay barn but these are quite fun.
Thanks for linking up at HLS CAS too. :)

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
