Funky Fossil - Blooming Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I am playing with the new release day from Funky Fossil Designs.

This is such an easy card to make. I made a little puddle of water and colored it with distress inks in green, yellow and pink. You get some gradient, where the colors mix. Splattered a bit.  After it dried I stamped over it.

It can't get much easier than that! Very simple one layer card, but I love how it came out!

Topflight Stamps - Chinese New Year

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day!

You didn't think I am going to ignore the Chinese Lunar year, did you? Not if it celebrates the RAT!

I am just waiting for excuses to play with my favorite Katzelkraft rat stamps, LOL! Since I needed to fit 4 of them onto my card I went with the A10 format. I also did not want to overcrowd them - they can become a bit territorial, you know...

I stamped them and masked them and sprayed the background. Colored them (Inktense). The numbers are die cuts (Papertrey).

The rat info I got of the internet and printed it from my Computer.

Here is it enlarged - it's otherwise a bit hard to read.

Here are the stamp supplies I used:

Versafine ink, Hunkydory Prism Glimmer Mist

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Love Cats

Hi Everybody,

you may already know about this, but we are doing things a bit differently in 2020 at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.  The details you can read below (and it's a worthwhile read, trust me!)

My stamping supplies:

I used a round stencil I die cut  myself. Sponged the circle, a bit darker on the outside and stamped the branch with the cats first with using white acrylic paint and then again in black ink at a little off set. That adds nice dimension. Lastly I added a bit of red Nuvo drops to the little heart.

We have three new designers on the DT and their favorite stamp which will be 50% off for the month of January. Shanna's favorite is the Castle, Melinda's favorite is the flowers in a vase and Nadine is the Psycho and saying. The images are on the web site under Featured Products. 
The other news is you can get $5.00 store credit once a week. Each month we will have several categories on sale for 20% OFF and a technique for that month. All you have to do is make a card with at least one stamp from the sales category and use the technique and 
Vicky will put $5.00 on your store account and leave you a comment that it is done. We can't wait to see your creative work! 

Here are the 20% off stamp sale categories and card techniques.

Valentine Day
Birds & Butterflies

Katzelkraft - Warm Winter Wishes from a Grumpy Penguin

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. 
I am starting to feel bad that January is almost  over and I have not yet produced a Christmas card....as usual I did not have enough last year....

I used the big penguin for this tag and the Santa hat from the Accessories  set. Did some masking and sponged around the penguin. I colored with water brush pens. The background I dry embossed with an embossing folder. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

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: Topflight StampsLost Coast Designs, or Frantic Stamper

Happy Stamping!

Card Concept inspired Christmas Card

Hi Everyone,

it has been a while that I had time for making a card other than DT cards. But the inspiration picture from The Card Concept caught my eye - see it below.

I used grey card stock as base and dry embossed it with a Papertrey embossing plate.Kind of hard to see, it is quite subtle. I diecut the deer (Poppy Stamps Whittle die,s) and glued them onto wood paper. Used a thin strip of antiqued mirror paper, as the inspiration pic has some lights in it. The sentiment is from inkystamps. Added two small pearls.
