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....

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!

This guy always cracks me up...he really looks as thought he's enjoying himself. Isn't this a Christmas Card? I mean the hat in all, says it all.
Grumpy penguin looks so cool though with his Santa hat on.

Love the penguin and the hat is a fun and adorable addition. I’ve never used Katzelkraft stamps, I am discovering these are fun and quirky. You are very generous to add a discount code to your post. Thank you. Glad you joined us at The Male Room. xx Clarissa

What a fun penguin Cornelia, even though he does have rather a scowl on his, and love the bright blue background of the tag, and great embossed falling snow in the background. x

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
