Katzelkraft - Nice People

Hello everyone! 
It's Tuesday and I'm back with a new Katzelkraft creation, for which I used the funny bunny from the "Les Scargots" collection and a quote from the "Adventure Begins" set - combined with texture stamps from Scrap Plaisir.  

This card was not very complicated to do. I stamped some textures with different Distress Oxide inks to create the background. Then stamped the bunny, once on the card and once on white cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers and cut it out with scissors. I added a little "shadow" under the bunny on the card to create some ground before I glued on the cut out bunny.

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

I used Katzelkraft stamps from these sets

Joyeux Noël

Hello everyone!
As you know, Saturday is 52Christma Card Throwdown day on my blog. This week we invite you to play with the following topic

...and I have neither stamp, nor punch for it!!!

But those who know me, know that does not stop me!

First I tried to make the bells - which was actually much easier than I thought at first! 
I punched out three different sized circles, colored them gray, and then cut two small slots in each bell. 
I also stamped small embellishments on each one and glued a string to them for hanging.

So, now that the most important part was done, I could move on to the rest.
I die cut the fir branch from white cardstock and colored it with alcohol markers. - I have a bunch of design paper and colored paper too, but never the one I want! - Do you feel the same way??
It was the same with the background. I designed it myself as well. 
I used the large black ink pad from Stampin'Up and wiped from top to bottom with light pressure over the white paper until I liked the result. Then I made small splotches with white ink and let it dry.
Meanwhile, I made a nice bow and glued it, as well as the bells and the branch to the card. 
Lastly, I stamped the beautiful sentiment from Scrap Plaisir, and adhered the whole thing to a white card base.

Have Fun!

A wonderful World

Hello everyone!
Today I invite you to the very first Dream Factory Challenge of the year. - You'll see a few things have changed....
For January we've selected the following movie

Operation Arctic
Keywords: Ice, snow, polar bears, snowy landscape, 
Arctic, children playing in the snow

After drawing the scene on several pieces of white cardstock, I cut out each layer, 
colored them in different shades of blue, and glued them on top of each other. 
Added some splatters of blue ink, the moon, golden dots and a sentiment from Katzelkraft. Voilà!!

For this card, I was inspired by a vector image of siberianart on VectorStock.

From now on, you can get inspired by the movie poster, the title
and/or the keywords - Isn't that great?! 

Please let us know if you like this new concept 
by leaving a little comment here or on the challenge blog. Thanks!!!

  Have Fun!!

Katzelkraft meets DotMCC (Reminder #23 )

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!!! 

The challenge theme is
National Bird Day

After stamping, I masked the birds and used Distress Oxide and my new stencil to create the background. 
I colored the birds with alcohol markers and added a few ink scribbles on the bottom to create some ground.
If I don't have the right stamp, I do like I did here - I stamp the words on cardstock, cut them to size and stick them on! That's it!!!

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

I used Katzelkraft stamps from the "Les Piafs" set

Christmas Greetings

Hello everyone!
Today is 52 Christmas Card Throwdown day on my blog. This week we invite you to play with the following colors 

White - Green - Brown

I made a quite simple card. 
Just splattered white ink on a kraft card and then sewed three pieces of patterned paper in the shape of fir trees. Added some die-cut stars as well. The sentiment ist stamped with Early Espresso (Stampin'Up). That's all!

Here you can see better how beautiful the paper of the tree on the far left shimmers.

Have Fun!!

National Bird Day - DotMCC Challenge #23

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

National Bird Day
celebrated on January 5th.

There are several ways to celebrate this day.

-- Pick up a bird identification book. It will help you to learn about species in your area.
-- Enhance the attraction of your backyard. Add feeders, shelter and more. Learn what birds in your area like to eat.
-- Visit an aviary. At a botanical garden, zoo, or nature preserve, you can get a close-up look at some of the more exotic species you've never seen before.

-- Make a card with a bird! 😉

I stamped the bird and masked it, then stamped the branch and masked it as well. I smooshed the lower third with Distress Oxide Mermaid Lagoon and stenciled sunrays on the upper part.
Using some bleach and a fine brush, I lightened a few spots in the water and underlined them with white gel pen. - I also added two strips of washi tape to the bottom edge.
Branch and bird are colored with alcohol markers. The sentiment is from Stampin'Up. 

Hope you like it. - Have Fun with the birds!
