Katzelkraft - Hungry Rat

Hi Everyone,

I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. 
With this card I hope I can stimulate some of you to play along in our little Day of the Month Card Challenge, that is still ongoing until 8/31. And I have not used my favorite rats in a while....

 This rat normally hold a slice of cheese, but it easily is turned into a slice of watermelon....

My stamp supplies:
Les Rats des Villes- KTZ179 (FRANCE)
Les Rats des Villes - KTZ179 (USA)

I colored the rat with water colors. The sentiment is by Rubber Necker, but I change it a bit - the last line should read "bought it". I trimmed the bottom and added a watermelony strip at the bottom.

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

Girl, you are freaking brilliant. Making that cheese into watermelon is a stroke of genius. You know, how much I adore these rats and this really is perfect for this great sentiment.

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....) 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
