Katzelkraft - You talkin' to me?

Hi everyone!
No card today, but an ATC. For my weekly Katzelkraft project, I chose one of the cute dogs from the Dainius collection



Isn't he a sweetie?

I took a leftover gel print from my stash and cut it to size. Stamped a small background pattern in the upper left corner and then sponged the edges with Peacock Feathers (Distress Oxide). 
I stamped the dog on the ATC. Stamped it again on Bristol paper, colored it with watercolors, cut it out and added it to the ATC. I heat embossed the sentiment, added it as well and finally backed the ATC with black cardstock.


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

Pink Christmas

Hi everyone!
Let's go for a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown
As usual, we'll start the month with a sketch. (See below)



I sponged a small rectangle with Picked Raspberry (Distress Oxide). Made a few splatters and stamped some snowflakes with the same ink. I added two strings to the card, then adhered the rectangle and bordered it with a black pattern. 
I stamped the bird on Bristol paper, colored it with alcohol markers, cut it out and added it to the card. Stamped a part of the sentiment on a die cut circle and attached it with foam pads. The other part is stamped next to the bird.

Have Fun!!

Special Delivery from Santa

Hi everyone!
We are entering the second half of our current Dream Factory challenge and I want to remind you that this month is all about Santa and Christmas....

The movie for this month is

The Santa Clause



I stamped the Santa, masked him and lightly sponged the part behind him. Removed the mask and colored the image with alcohol markers. Spritzed some blue and white for the snow and added the sentiment. Hope you like it.

Katzelkraft - It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Hi everyone!
Today is Katzelkraft day and Christmas card production is in full swing....
My card features one of the fun mice stamps from the recent Dainius collection. The Christmas tree and the sentiment are from the latest Christmas stamp collection.



I stamped the Christmas tree on a acrylic painted background and embellished it with pearl pen dots. I also added a few strokes of green and a garland. I stamped the mouse on bristol paper, colored it with alcohol markers, cut it out and glued it next to the tree. Dotted on a little snow with a white Poska pen. Added the sentiment.
The Santa hat the mouse is holding is an older Katzelkraft stamp.


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

Fa La La La La

Hi everyone!
Ready for another 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge? 
This week we want you to use a 


Stencil


I sponged some of the background with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers and then applied the musical notes using a stencil and Distress Oxide Chipped Sapphire. Stamped the singing mouse, colored it with alcohol markers and added white dots and stars to its clothes. 
Finally, I stamped "Merry Christmas" and "Fa La La" and added some shadow and glitter under the mouse's feet.


Have Fun!!

Katzelkraft - growing up is optional

Hi everyone!
The recently released Katzelkraft stamp collection contains many humorous animals by children's book painter and illustrator Dainius. His characters are really too much fun!♥♥ I can't help but smile every time I see them, and I am sure you are going to like them too!
Today you'll see two more of them on my card, and another example of how well Katzelkraft stamps can be combined with each other from the newest, to the oldest release!




After stamping and masking the cows and fence, I sponged the background with Mermaid Lagoon and Mowed Lawn (Distress Oxide). Colored the cows with alcohol markers and stamped tufts of grass. The sentiment I embossed on a black strip and adhered it to the card.


See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;))
