Katzelkraft - Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!
Usually my Katzelkraft day isn't until Tuesday, but since the new challenge on Dream Factory starts today and this card is full of Katzelkraft critters and I can't make it in time anyway, I'm combining the two for today. 


For this month we have a beautiful animated movie as challenge theme:

Keywords: Tiny creatures, (insects, beetles, birds, snails, butterflies, flowers, forest etc.), 
both from the real, as well as from the fantasy world.


Once again I've done myself a pretty fiddly job and actually I could not afford it in terms of time, 
but what the heck, it was fun!

Stamping, masking, sponging, coloring, cutting, cluing ..... 



I used Katzelkraft's whole NOUNOUNES family 
and a tree and sentiments from Stampin'Up to create this XXL birthday card. 



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

Katzelkraft - growing up is optional

Hi everyone!
It's Katzelkraft day. Today I played with the fun meerkats.



I had a small piece of background paper left over that I used for last week's tag and decided to turn it into a bookmark.
It's amazing how much you can squeeze in such a small space without it looking cluttered! I actually managed to fit all the meerkats from the set on it!
All but the lightest one are cut out and glued on after I colored them with alcohol markers. Before that, I stamped a few circles and dots on the background. The sentiment I cut into labels and backed them with black cardstock. To finish the bookmark nicely, I attached a green ribbon to the top.


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

XMAS Shopping

Hello everyone!
Ready for a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown
This week we have a sketch challenge for you (see below)




As for the last sketch, I used again an age-old 3-D image for my card.
So that it does not look so old-fashioned, I have left the card very bright. To stick with the sketch, I simply attached gold printed vellum on the card that I had previously sprinkled with black ink. 
The matching sentiment I found in my sticker box. :)  Hope you like my oldie!


Have Fun!!

Advice from a tree...

Hi everyone!
We have a new challenge at the Day of the Month Card Club! This month we are celebrating


Love A Tree Day

Trees are a vital part of nature. They provide more than just beautiful landscapes and a shady canopy on a sunny day. They play a significant role in reducing erosion and moderating the climate as well as give us oxygen. Large quantities of carbon are stored in their tissues as trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. 
They provide habitat and structure for strong ecosystems.

This is a good day to plant a new tree or 
spend some time enjoying the beauty of the trees that are all around you. (Source)


I stamped the tree on a background of green and blue splatters, trimmed it and added a piece of torn paper to the bottom edge. I lightly traced the placement of the image on the card and wrote the tree's advice along the lines. Then I erased the lines and adhered the image with foam pads.

Katzelkraft - Sunflower

Hi everyone!
Tuesday is Katzelkraft day here on my blog. 
This week I decided to make another tag - I'm liking them more and more....



I again used a background made with the gel press (red and pink area). This one didn't print very well, but for my tag it was just what I wanted. So I could color the upper part of the tag with different liquid inks and Distress Oxides - as you can see I got carried away with the colors.... 
I stamped the images and text in black and splattered some white ink on the tag. The flowers do not have stems, so I adapted those from another stamp.
The thistle and sentiment in the upper left are from older Katzelkraft stamp sets that are no longer available.


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

Girls just wanna have fun...

Hi everyone!
It's the second half on the Dream Factory and I want to remind you of our current challenge.
This month we have two movies...


Two is a Family and/or Bad Moms

The topics are:
Father's Day and/or Mother's Day - or simply masculine and/or feminine



My first card was for Father's Day, for the second one I chose the Mother's Day/feminine theme. 
To dress the girls I used the paper piecing technique (patterned paper for the one on the left and a scrap of homemade background for the girl on the right) - everything else I colored with watercolors. 
I backed the girls with pink cardstock and glued them to patterned paper, which I then adhered to a blank card. 
Hope you like it.

Have Fun!!
