East meets West

Hi Everyone,

I like to play in challenges that have interesting themes. Besides that, I really need to get into Christmas card making...


Lost Coast Designs  with its theme East meets West spoke to me. So I pulled out this ancient die cut from Paper Smooches and sponged a background. Added some stamps form another Paper Smooches set.


Hope you liked this.
Happy Stamping!

Funky Fossil Designs - You are Fur-bulous

Hi Everyone,

I am still having a lot of fun playing with the  new release from Funky Fossil Designs!


The dogs are from the set Furry Friends and the bee and flower are from the set Bees Knees, both designed by Donna Gray. I am sure you all know her from being on the DT for Craft Stamper Magazine and she has designed for various stamp companies in the past. And I am soooo happy she now designs for Funky Fossil Designs, as I am a huge fan of her whimsical stamps. You may want to follow her on Instagram - such a treat!

Those are the two sets I used:
Furry Friends A6 Clear Stamp Set      No photo description available.
Furry FriendsBees Knees

I masked a bit and stamped. Colored with Inktense and markers.  Added the sentiment. Trimmed the card and added some strips of patterned paper.


Super easy to make.

Happy Stamping!

Sympathy cards with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Hi Everybody,

Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below.


Unfortunately COVID 19 struck New Jersey hard and I needed  several sympathy cards. Such  disturbing times......
Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps has a nice selection of them, you can see them all HERE.


I made a background with alcohol inks. always amazing what you can create with them.
The sentiment you can find HERE. I stamped it on vellum. I also used a larger sentiment inside, but I forgot to photograph it. You can see it  HERE



This is the second card I made. Same stamps, just different background.


Here are the 20% off stamp sale categories and card techniques.
We also have a big sale on nurse, doctor and medical-stamps.

Penguins love Coffee

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day! 
And since it's also the spring/summer Coffee Blog hop you get a coffee card from me today!
Topflight Stamps is a sponsor for the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and is offering up a $25 gift card. 


Topflight Stamps is one of the Super Sponsors.


I first stamped the half tone circle in Versamark and heat embossed it in white. I stamped the penguin, masked it and then the coffee cup and cut them out. Colored them with Inktense and markers. I then glued the penguin/cup onto the card. Trimmed it and added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom and some Bakers Twine.


I hope you liked this! See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

Guest Designing for The Male Room Challenge #137

Hi Everyone,

I have the honor to be guest designing for the current Male Room challenge, where the theme is "Landscape" in a male version! Thank you so much Male Room for having me!


I had this landscape die (Altenew) in my stash - an NBUS, that I thought is perfect for this challenge. I took a paint chip to get the perfect color graduation, although for the middle color I had to take a different paper from my stash. The sentiment is an old one by STAMPlorations.




So curious how you will interpret this theme! See you at The Male Room!

Katzelkraft - Coffee First

Hi Everyone,

temporarily I switched to Tuesday for my Katzelkraft postings.
And since it's the Coffee Lovers Blog hop right now I thought I make a coffee themed card.



I finally can play with those  wonderful owls - one of the latest Katzelkraft sets. And as usual those animals have quite the personality!

Les Chouchettes - KTZ237, Five O'Clock - KTZ199, Mugs - KTZ201 (FRANCE)
Owls - KTZ237,  Five O'Clock - KTZ199,  Coffee and Tea to go - KTZ201 (USA)

Stamped the owl. Did a little bit of masking. Stamped the coffee cup. Colored with markers and Inktense. Added the sentiment. Then I thought it looked a bit bare and added the stencil (Funky Fossil Designs) and sponged around the outside of the card.


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!

Jingle all the Way

Hi Everyone,

I finally got myself to make a Christmas card - I hardly made any this year. Usually I already have a little stack by now....


I am playing a long with 52CCT - the theme is embossing. I used a cutting plate from Neat&Tangled for my embossing and my favorite characters from Dixi Craft. I used shimmer card stock - I think it shows in the photo. Added the sentiment and two green gems for a bit of bling and sparkle.


Happy embossing everyone!
