Katzelkraft - Minuscule

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. 
This card I made for the current Traumfabrik challenge - the theme is Minuscule.

I had to create this little insect scene with the humongous grass - an ancient Stampin' Up stamp to shrink those insects down to size....

If you don't know the movie you should at least watch a compilation HERE. It's definitely worth it!

My Katzelkraft stamps:

Les Nounounes KTZ234, English Quotes ktz139(FRANCE)
 Bugs and Insects  KTZ234 (USA)

Stamped the grass in two different greens, although they look quite similar here. Stamped the insects. Used bleach to get rid of the grass in the insects and once it was dry colored the insects with water brush markers. Stamped the sentiment. In the end I decided to sponge a bit of green at the bottom.

Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration!

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.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
