Katzelkraft - Christmas: Take it Easy

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. 
And I really have to make more Christmas cards, believe it or not.


So I pulled out my favorite angel from the Sherlock Holmes  set - the exhausted little guy - remember him from last year? You think he should have recovered in the meantime, but I guess not...




I used an ombre colored background and stamped the angel on it. Colored him with water brush pens and Stabilo markers. Added the sentiment. Can't be much easier than that.
The sentiments says: 
Christmas: take it easy
relax
eat, drink and be happy
without inhibitions
and keep smiling


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

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Cool Yule

Hi Everybody,

we are getting closer to that wonderful time of the year where we are all sending out tons of cards....you know which time I am talking about - yes - Christmas!!!! You better start thinking about it - only a few more weeks....that's right!


Here is an easy one. I took the cool deer stamp and colored with with water brush pens. Cut it out.
I took grey background paper and the cool Yule stamp and stamped it repeatedly with Versamark and heat embossed it in clear. Added white gel pen accents. I distressed the paper a bit with distress ink in grey and added generous white splatters. Added the deer.


Happy Stamping!

Funky Fossil - Elegant Tree

Hi Everyone,

I made yet another Christmas card with my Funky Fossil supplies.


I used the Elegant Tree stencil with gold embossing paste. When the paste was partially dried, I pressed the pearls into it. I guess you could also wait until its dry completely, but I think they are a bit better anchored, if you can press them in. Once it was completely dry I trimmed the Kraft card and added Washi tape at the bottom.


This would be super easy to mass produce. I might just do this, in case I don't fulfill my quota of Christmas cards..... You don't even need a single stamp here....

Happy Stenciling Everyone!

My stamp supplies:




Now wait - you didn't think I only gave you half a rat, didn't you??? No way, as you can see, she is just turning around the corner. As so often I colored my images with Inktense a Stabilo markers.


 Here you see the card in all its glory, snicker...


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

Plant a Garden                            Sew Lovely


For my first card I used the set "Plant a Garden". I stamped the flowers in two different shades of green and added a bit of color for the blossoms. Colored a strip of scrap paper and stamped the sentiment on it. Could not resist to add the cute little snail.


For my second card I used the "Sew Lovely" set.



I truly is lovely. I put the sentiment in my Misti and stamped it repeatedly over the entire length of the card with Versamark and heat embossed it. I used a stitched die (Cutplorations) to add some subtle stitching to the borders. Sponged over it in blue. I colored the thread spools and cut them out. Added them to my card with foam tape.


Happy Stamping!

Funky Fossil New Release Preview

Hi Everyone,

Funky Fossil has a new stamp release coming out on the 19th and you will love it!  Here is a little preview of the good things to come:


I used the wonderful geometric stag stencil and combined him with the set "Joy"

Image may contain: text

I used white embossing paste for the deer stencil. I used patterned paper as my background. After it had dried, I heat embossed the stamps in white. Added little tone-on tone accents with a water brush pen.



And here is my second card:


I also used the new set "Festive Penguins" in addition to "Joy"


I combined both stamp sets. I heat embossed the pretty wreath in silver and added the cute little penguins. I just love them. I added some Stickles to the pink hat, to make it more festive.


Happy Stamping!
