Katzelkraft - Time To Make Merry

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. 
For today's post I got inspired by the current 52CCT challenge - the theme is under the Sea.

And as I am terribly behind in Christmas card making I thought I take advantage of that.

I stamped the Santa hat, masked it and then stamped the fish and masked it. Made the background with distress oxide inks and a stencil. The light chain is from the set Noel sleigh. I used bleach to get the stripes lighter. The sentiment is by Ellen Hutson.

The bleached rays lighting up this cool Santa fish are fabulous, Cornelia ... as ever, brilliant colouring ... such a fun Christmas card! Hugs, Anita :)
So cute and clever to put the Santa hat on that fish. I love this idea.

That fantastically colored fish looks so pleased to be wearing that Santa hat...not! Despite that, the card is simply brilliant. Love the sun rays in your beautifully blended sea. The sentiment tied in with the string of lights is perfect for adding a festive note.
Oh my gosh, that fish with the Santa hat is great! Love your light rays in the water too. Thank you for sharing with us at Cardz 4 Guys!

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
