Katzelkraft - Medusa

Hi Everyone,

it's Katzelkraft Wednesday!


My stamp supplies:


I sprinkled blue Brusho pigments onto photo paper it and spritzed generously with water. The pigment seeps right into the paper.  I stamped the jelly fish.  I took a Stabilo marker and added some color touches to the jelly fish. Stamped the sentiment with my Misti. Added a glitzy enamel dot



Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration!

Happy Stamping!

Geometric Corner

Hi Everyone,

there are a couple of challenges that are just begging to be combined in one card - I have listed them below.


I made this card with a stencil by My Favorite Things, animal stamps by Cats on Appletrees and the sentiment stamps are by Winnie & Walter . Added Washi tape at the bottom. The reds are all different, but almost look the same in the picture...


I wish you a great day - you'll need it. It's Monday, after all....

Christmas with Heart

Hi Everyone,

time to make some Christmas cards. 


I have this sweet little dear from Sweet Stamp Shop that conveniently holds a heart (requirement for  the Christmas Kickstart challenge). I put him in front of an iStencil Christmas tree and colored him with waterbrush pens and Inktense. 


I rotated the star and sponged it twice.
Added Washi tape on the side and Stickles to the star and heart. This card is super simple to make. Only takes a few minutes.

Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps with Rinea Foil Papers - Take 3

Hi Everybody,

Image may contain: text

Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps is collaborating with Rinea Foiled papers this month. The papers are great quality and not at all flimsy. They are quite fun to create with!


I used a background cutting die for this card. I love the chocolate brown shimmer of the paper and the backside is gold. I just turned the stripes around and glued them back in.  I love this coffee cup and figured it's time to ink it up again. I colored it with Fine Tec Mica colors and added the sentiment.


Enjoy your coffee - or tea, if you prefer!

Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps with Rinea Foil Papers - Take 2

Hi Everybody,

Image may contain: text

Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps is collaborating with Rinea Foiled papers this month. The papers are great quality and not at all flimsy. They are quite fun to create with! Since this month we are promoting St. Patrick's Day stamps (they are 30% off this month) I thought I make a card for the occasion.



I dry embossed one of those lovely papers and punched out a few shamrocks. I also stamped a few small shamrocks and added the heat embossed sentiment - I mounted that with foam tape.


I hope your day will be a blessed one!

Katzelkraft - Be My Valentine

Hi Everyone,

it's Katzelkraft Wednesday! 
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, so I am going along with that theme.


This is actually not a card - I stamped on a primed wood surface, so it can be hung on a wall. I stamped the cat and dog, colored them and masked them. Afterwards I spritzed the background with spray inks.

 Those are the two stamp sets I used

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 Valentine's Day!

Twofer Challenge #13

Hi Everyone,

I am playing again in the Twofer challenge  - the current theme is STARS.

No problem, I have lots of those. Since now stencils are on the allowed list I decided to go with this beautiful Memory Box stencil - if I remember correctly it has never seen the light of day...


For my first card I sprinkled black Brusho pigments onto water color card stock. I got a bunch of backgrounds out of this one and decided to go with this one. Since the white background from the water color paper looked kind of blah I sponged distress inks on top. I also  outlined some of the bigger stars with a fine black pen. Added iridescent tape (with stars, too) and the sentiment (lil' Inkers). In teh end I also added some Stickles.


For my second card I did the same thing.


I used emerald and grey Brushos and used photo paper instead. Again I got a bunch of backgrounds out of this one. The cute dragon is from My Favorite Things, as is the sentiment. 


I hope you liked this!

Happy Twofing!
