Katzelkraft - Smile when it's raining + DotMCC Reminder #27

Hello everyone!
Today I want to remind you of the current challenge at Day of the Month Card Club, and since today is Tuesday, Katzelkraft is also in the game!!! 


National Escargot Day 
on Day of the Month Card Club

The background of this card is the negative print of a stencil I used for this card
Since it was already finished, all I had to do was add the stamps.

I tried to color the umbrella, like here, but ended up liking it better without, 
so only the snaill got a little color. Hope you like it too!

Have fun with the challenge! - See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;)

Hello everyone!
Today starts a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week we want you to play with 


You can use any color you want, but kraft has to be predominant!

I embossed the panel and then carefully dabbed white ink on the snowflakes. 
I stamped and colored the little scene quite some time ago, 
but somehow the scene looked very lost on a white background... 

I kept putting it aside and lo and behold, today it matched this background perfectly! 
I just cut it out and adhered it to the new background. Cool! Hope you like it...

National Escargot Day - DotMCC - Challenge #27

Hello everyone!
Time for a new challenge at Day of the Month Card Club! This month we are celebrating

National Escargot Day

Let's go out and eat some snails. 
It's considered a delicacy by some. For many others, the thought of feasting on snails is just too yucky.
The approved way of celebrating National Escargot Day is by eating a plate of Escargots. For those who can't bring themselves and their stomachs to the table, I suggest making a card with snails on it for our challenge! 😉

I don't eat escargots, but there are quite a lot of them on my card! LOL
Except for the four snail shells on the far right, I drew everything by hand and colored it with alcohol markers. 
I then masked the snail shells as best I could to sponge the background with Distress Oxides. The Birthday sentiment is from Stampin'Up. I got inspired on Pinterest. Hope you like it.

Katzelkraft - Hello Friends

Hello everyone!
Time flies and we are already back to Tuesday! That means I have a new Katzelkraft creation to show.
I used stamps from the "Les Mordants" set, and a sentiment from the "English Quotes"

I stenciled the background with Distress Oxide, colored the pencils with alcohol markers and cut them out. I embossed one sentiment on a large black label and stamped the "you color my world"  on smaller ones. I glued goggly eyes to the pencils and then pasted everything to the card - two of the pencils are mounted with 3D foam pads. Added a strip of washi tape to the bottom, to finish it off.

Hope you like it. - See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;)

Winter Wonderland

Hello everyone!
At 52 Christmas Card Throwdown we always start the month with a sketch. (See below)

Here's my inspiration.

First I sponged the background with Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio (Distress Oxide) and then stenciled dots with the same colors. I stamped the images and splattered white ink on the panel. 
 The animals, the branch and the bird I treated with bleach to make them lighter. 

I tore the panel into three parts and glued them slightly shifted on the card. 
Finally, I embossed the sentiment on a black label and adhered it with adhesive foam pads.
Hope you like my Winter Wonderland...

Have Fun!!

Hugs and Kisses

Hello everyone!
It's half time at the Dream Factory, and I want to remind you of our current challenge "The Broken Circle"
This time we'll just take inspiration from the title and the movie poster. (see below)

Keywords: Circle(s), tatoos ...or whatever else you can discover on the poster.

My card is very simple. I just die cut circles and adhered the negative parts with adhesive foam pads to a panel, which I had previously sponged with Distress Oxide inks. 
The sentiment was already printed on vellum. I die cut this as well and adhered it to the largest circle. 
Finally, I added three sequins for more interest. Hope you like it.

Circles meet us every day ... we just have to see them!
Have Fun! - See you soon for a new challenge!

Hello everyone!
I have the honor to support the Christmas Craft Creations team this month. The theme is "No Stamping" and this is my second inspiration for it.

The little die-cut village had been on my craft table for a long time, and the background is a leftover piece from a Brusho Pigments experiment. I sprinkled on some gold splatter, put both in a frame and backed it with patterned paper before adhering it to the square card base. 

The HoH❄️Ho is die cut once from black foam, and once from gold cardstock and adhered to each other. 
Finally, I die cut Santa's reindeer team and adhered it to the frame slightly sticking out. Hope you like it...


Have fun with the challenge!

Katzelkraft - Les Dodus ATC

Hello everyone!
It's Tuesday and I'm back with new Katzelkraft creations. 
For today I made 4 ATCs with the "Les Dodus" stamp set.... (see below)

I created backgrounds with Distress Oxide, Brusho, Izink opaline pigment and two different stencils and then just stamped the images and sentiments.
I backed two of them with purple cardstock and the other two with black cardstock. 

Here again in a single view.



I hope you like them! - See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;)
