Katzelkraft - Happy Easter

Hi Everyone,

it's Katzelkraft Wednesday!


I used the cute Bunny for my Easter card - can't forget those!!!
I colored him with Inktense and die cut the egg. I also used a bunny border die to add more interest. Pepped it up with a thin strip of neon paper that was laying around and added the sentiment, which is from the set Holiday Quotes


This set has a lot of useful holiday sentiments. Comes in handy all the time!


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

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!

Simple Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to play along with the Library Challenge, so I made a card for it. I don't know the book, but the cover is easy enough to serve as inspiration. See the picture below.


I took the circle birthday die from My Favorite Things - I actually had it cut already and used a sand colored card stock snippet to fill the circle. Added the horse from Cats on Appletrees, but turned it into a unicorn (or party horse - whatever you prefer). In my book its a unicorn.  I die cut the square with a SSS die.

Peace and Joy

Hi Everyone,

it's Christmas card time again. I am falling behind my goal, so I took some time to make a Christmas card.


The CAS Christmas challenge is about to close, so I took that as incentive. The theme is peace. My dies are by Poppy Stamps and the sentiment is from Uniko. The background is sponged with distress inks and I added water splatters.


Don't neglect your Christmas cards.....

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....

Less is More - focus on sentiment, one layer

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!
