Katzelkraft - Christmas Stag

     Hi Everyone,

I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post.
I decided to play along with some Christmas challenges early this year, to avoid stress later, trying to get all those cards done in time. So far, every year has been a struggle.......
52CCT has a color challenge this week - not my favorite I admit, but therein lies the challenge - its 3 shades of brown.
I stamped the stag from the Into the Wild set and colored it with Inktense pencils. Masked it and added the script from the Christmas Snowflakes in brown ink. Added black splatters. The sentiment is heat embossed and is from Darkroom Door.
The stamps I used are from the following sets:
Into the Wild - KTZ281, Christmas Snowflakes - KTZ282 (FRANCE)
 Christmas Snowflakes - KTZ282, Into the Wild - KTZ281 (USA)

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

Happy Stamping!

52 CCT - 3 shades of brown
The Paper Players - winter animals
Day of the Month Card Club - handwriting (not mine, but someone's....)

Du hast mal wieder vorgemacht, wie man 3 Brauntöne auf einer Karte gut unterbringen kann.

I struggle with the all-neutral color challenges too, but your stag card in all browns looks delightful! I like the script background behind the stag image. Thank you for playing with us at The Paper Players!
Your stag is so regal! I love the script background and the double sentiments! So happy you joined my challenge at The Paper Players this week!

Der Hirsch braucht wirklich nicht viel, um hervorzustechen! Der beige Hintergrund steht ihm hervorragend - die Schrift dahinter machts perfekt! Vielen Dank für's Mitmachen bei 52CCT und DotMCC. LG, Rosi

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
