So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps - Candy Cane Christmas Time

Hi Everyone,

I have been playing with the new So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps release.
Here I am using the Candy Cane.



I inked up a strip of Kraft paper with the candy cane and heat embossed it in white.

Colored first the red stripes with Inktense


Added the white


used a green card base and stamped the sentiment


Added a strip of glitter paper and my candy cane panel - used the Misti to line it all up perfectly


Stamped the sentiment again. Toughed up the sentiment where the ink didn't take well because of the heat embossing. You can use a black Sharpie for that or an alcohol ink marker.


Our current promotions:

All Christmas Stamps are 15% off in the month of November

No automatic alt text available.

And this wonderful sentiment is 50%off in November

Katzelkraft - Exhausted Angel #2

Hi Everyone,

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


I played again with my new stamps - could not wait to get my fingers on them......This exhausted angel is from the Sherlock Holmes set
The silhouette stamps are called Winter Scene

I made myself a mask for the angel. Stamped the angel and sponged with distress oxide inks. Splattered some water. Added the Winter Scene stamp. Colored with Inktense. Splattered some more, this time with Mr. Huey in white. Trimmed the sides and mounted it onto white card stock. Added a touch of Stickles to the angel.



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!

Advent Calendar with Cats on Appletrees

Hi Everyone,

no card today, but I am showing you the front of my yearly advent calendar that I make for my daughter. My son prefers the chocolate one, those are easy...


I used designer paper as background and die cut the windows with an Ellen Hutson die. I used a template by Julie Ebersole - you can find it HERE. If you are interested in more details - I have a photo tutorial HERE, that explains exactly how I made this. Just in case you have a few hours to spare to make your own advent calendar....
The numbered baubles are by Memory Box and lastly the animals are from Cats on Appletrees.

If you are interested to see the inside - come back after Christmas, I'll show it to you....

Not much longer until Christmas!

Happy Stamping!

Gilded Embossing Folder

Hi Everyone,

I need to increase my Christmas card production.....just doing them all year long is apparently not enough....


So I pulled out my favorite Dixie Drafts dies (Santa and Reindeer), a 3-D embossing folder and a so far NBUS German sentiment set from Inkystamps. This was really quick to make. I embossed dark blue card stock and smeared Delicata ink on top. Die cut the Santa, deer and stars (Memory Box) from gold card stock. Assembled everything with some Washi tape . The sentiment I had put in my Misti and stamped it on both cards.

Go Nuts on Your Birthday

Hi Everyone,

and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!!

my friend Flo nudged me to play along in the current Night Shift Stamper challenge . The theme is fall fruits. How could I say no...... in fact, it's my biggest problem. I just can't do it.  - Just discovered the link is closed, buhu.....


But I kept it CAS - the fastest way to get a card done.....
I wanted a graphic vibe. I picked an ancient Michaels 1$ stamp - the big acorn. To make it even better it was an NBUS
I heat embossed it onto black card stock. Stamped the little squirrel (Cats on Appletrees) and added the sentiment (My Favorite Things). Would have been even better if it would say bloody birthday....I added those red splatters, since I wanted some color, but it just looks like blood splatter....


Hope you like it - despite those splatters....

Happy Stamping!

Hope you don't end up like this squirrel after today ­čśť

Katzelkraft - Exhausted Angel

Hi Everyone,

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



The angle is from the Sherlock Holmes set. He really could have used some bigger wings, LOL!

The Santa is from Noel - Keep Calm

I made an angel mask. Stamped the angel  and the Santa (also masked) and sponged with distress oxide inks. Splattered some water and Mr. Huey in white. Colored with Inktense. Trimmed the sides and mounted it onto white card stock. Added a touch of Stickles to the angel and to the snowy roof top.

Happy Stamping!
