Katzelkraft Meerkats

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. As promised last week, I show you the envelope I created, using those awesome Katzelkraft Meerkats.


At Heindesign - a German stamp company they have a stamp project - you can create a card or post card and send it to them and you will get a Andra Tutto Bene stamp - this means everything will be alright. It is Italian. In Italy the people applauded all the COVID helpers with those signs on their balconies. It is such an uplifting message. I decided to play along. The card I showed last next week, you can see it HERE.


 The meerkats I stamped and colored with Inktense pencils.  Added white gel pen accents. The sentiment I wrote into a sponged speech bubble. The frame is an ancient wood stamp from a no longer existing company. Added matching postage stamps.



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

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

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....)
