Katzelkraft Calendar - May

Hi Everyone,

I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post.
I am having so much fun with my Katzelkraft calendar. 
I dedicated May to Mother's Day (May 8th) and therefore Flowers are in order! Unfortunately I could not stop some of the insects sneaking in.....I guess they also like the flowers, LOL!
I started out stamping the flowers first. Stamped the insects. Added masking fluid, since I did not want to mask all of them with post it notes.....Once the fluid dried I smooshed the background with distress oxide inks.

Colored with watercolors and a few marker accents. Also added white gel pen accents. Glued on the little calendar.

The stamps I used are from the following sets:
Fleurs Doodle - KTZ178, Les Nounounes - KTZ234 (FRANCE)
 Hibiscus (not the same set, but would work, too)- KTZ177, Bugs and Insects -KTZ234 (USA)

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

Happy Stamping!

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....)

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   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. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters.
