Katzelkraft - Oh Dear it's Christmas

     Hi Everyone,

I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post.
As I said previously, we are still in Christmas card making season!
The Cardinal stamp is brand new, but I added a companion (ancient stamp set) for him. He looked kind of lonely on his branch...
I stamped the birds and colored them with water colors. I added Crystal Lacquer to the berries and let them dry. I masked the Cardinal. I used a stencil for the background.Smudged the ground and brushed around the edges of the card. Added the sentiment.

The stamps I used are from the following set:
Red Cardinal - KTZ301Les Piafs - KTZ151, Christmas Sayings - KTZ302 , (FRANCE)
Red Cardinal - KTZ301, Birds - KTZ151, Christmas Sayings - KTZ302,  (USA)

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

Cardinals are one of my favourite birds and this one is coloured beautifully and sweetly paired with his bluebird friend! Love your stencilling behind too! We are glad to see you enjoying the challenge at Stamping Sensations this month with this pretty card. Hugs, Lesley

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

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!

Or you can see the same thing on my photo tutorial. With mirror
