Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps - Love Swans

Hi Everybody,

I pulled out some oldies from my Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamp stash. those swans are gorgeous and didn't see much ink yet.



I made myself a rectangular mask and sponged the background. Stamped the white swan and stamped it again onto a piece of scrap card stock. Cut it out. Glued it onto the swan on the card. Used a stamp positioner to stamp the Black swan onto the card. Took a white gel pen for accents and colored the beaks. Once the ink was completely dry (next day) I heat embossed the sentiment. Added splatters.

Katzelkraft - One of those Days

Hi Everyone,

it's Katzelkraft Wednesday!





I finally got my hands on those funny birds. They needed to fly into my craft room....I made my self a "stencil" and sponged the background. Stamped the bird partially on the background. Stamped the bird again on a piece of scrap paper and sponged him, too. Stamped the bird a third time and cut out the eyes and beak. Fuzzy cut he bird and assembled everything. Added some white gel pen accents. Stamped the sentiment.


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

Twofer Challenge #17

Hi Everyone,

 have you been waiting for my Twofer entry? 

Well, here it is:


I have this ancient set by The Alley Way stamps - -a company that sadly does not longer exist. But I still have plenty of their stamps, which in this case came in handy!



For this card I dressed up the bee as vampire - she is riding a broom (Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps) and the sentiment is in part TAWS and Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps., 



For this card I used a honeycomb stamp and the flightpath from a Joy Clair set for the background. Added Stickles to the wings. Die cut the card base with a die by Simon Says and mo9unted it on to dark brown card stock.



I am linking up with:

Watercooler Wednesday challenge - anything masculine (first card)
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - travel (first card) - that bee is travelling somewhere

The Back Stories With Darnell and Cornelia - #5 George

GEORGE


Everyone was gathering in the conference room to celebrate the boss’s birthday so George and Winnie walked down the hall together from the lab where they were assigned. George was busy looking over his shoulder at 3-year-old Winnie who had just let go of the party balloon, so he didn’t notice the pileup in front of him until after he turned the corner.


Before he could stop himself, George stepped on Imogene’s tail which made Imogene howl and fall into the wall. This allowed George a clear look ahead where he saw that Everett was lying flat out, his terrified eyes pinned on the tiniest mouse George had ever seen. Not even in the secret high-security lab.
George knew that Everett was frozen in fear and the only way to clear the hall would require him to step into Everett’s line of sight.
Slinking around Imogene’s wide hips and Everett’s flattened ears, George locked eyes with the tiny mouse. And froze.
