Katzelkraft - The Rats are Escaping!

Hi Everyone,

it's Katzelkraft Wednesday!

I went to a craft fair on Saturday and there I saw a cool stencil from Colorful Life Designs that unfortunately was to big for an A2 card. But it got me the idea for this card. I made my own NYC sewer manhole cover and what better than having the rats come out of it?

I made the manhole cover with a Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder and circle die cuts.
The NYC sewer I printed on my computer. The sentiment is by Technique Tuesday.

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!

Linking up with:

Simon Says Stamps - animal antics
Just us Girls - embossing folder
Archi-Scraps - squeeze it in 
(my rat is squeezing out - hope it qualifies, lol)

Obwohl diese Ratten f├╝rchterlich aussehen, sind Deine Rattenkarten immer lustig und erfreuen das Auge.

I so love les Rats but I have to admit that this idea makes my skin crawl, lol. When I had a shop, my friend and I were in one hot day, with the door open, when suddenly I saw what I thought was a cat walk in through the door - it wasn't, it was a RAT! A huge rat that looked like a tabby cat! My brave friend shooed it out of the door with a brush and then put a notice on the door saying, 'No rats allowed!' I still shudder when I remember that day :-(
Great design and beautifully done, as ever!

Is it me or does putting sewer rats on a card make you a genius. And that manhole cover is the perfect backdrop for this vermin.

Verna Angerhofer said...

I am still giggling over this one. Your work is always so uplifting with humor.

Jen said...

This is too funny! Great idea.

Sue VanDeVusse said...

This is one of the best welcome cards I have ever seen! I love your manhole cover with those nasty critters crawling out. Very creative and unique! Thanks for playing along with us at JUGS!

What a fun card, love it. Just ordered the Kazelkraft Rats, thanks for the inspiration :)

Bobby said...

Disturbing and fun at the same time, Cornelia. You know I love your Katzelkraft creations but this one takes top prize.

Bobby said...

I got carried away by the rats and forgot to say thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

Julene Matthews said...

This is fantastic. Thank you for entering Archiscraps and yes it qualifies!
We were in NY last year and saw exactly that! A rat coming up out of a drain. It creeped me out!
