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. Blooming Birthday 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: Les Rats des Villes Versafine ink , Hunkydory Prism Glimmer Mist Linking up with: Watercooler Wednesday challenge  - all about occasions Simon Says Wednesday challenge - anything goes

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: Two Cats in a Tree Love you Catherine Pooler Ink 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 w

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 usual I did not have enough last year.... Grumpy Penguins  KTZ145, Accessories KTZ156 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 Stamps ,  Lost Coast Designs , or  Frantic Stamper .  Use code  FUNSTAMPING  to get 12% discount at  Topflight Stamps .

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.
