Birthday wishes

Hi everyone!
Time for a quick reminder about our current challenge at the Day of the Month Card Club
We're celebrating


National Look Alike Day
Anything thats twice or look alike goes!



I stamped a butterfly bush flower and a butterfly twice. 
Stamped another butterfly at the top of the flower. Colored the flowers with aqua markers and the butterflies with metallic watercolors. Made a few blue watercolor spots in the background and then die cut the panel into a rectangular shape. I adhered it to an embossed panel and then to a blank card. 
Heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment and added it to the card.


Have Fun!

Katzelkraft - ...it's been one of those days

Hi everyone!
I'm back with a new Katzelkraft card.
For today's ATC-card I used again one of those funny gorillas 





I stamped the gorilla, pineapple and coconuts, colored them with alcohol ink markers and cut them out. 
Stamped a few background patterns on a stenciled leftover and cut it to ATC-size. Pasted a couple of leaves cut out of washi tape in the top left corner and then stuck on the grumpy gorilla with its pineapple and coconuts.
Used letters and words from the Whatchamacallit set to create the text.

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

B-Day Girl

Hi everyone!
Let's go for a new challenge at the Dream Factory
The movie for this month is...



They Cloned Tyrone 

Redesign one of our cards in your own way
or
Use something Twice 
This can be the same stamp/image twice 
or.....
 .....something that is similar, like 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 birds, 2 people, etc.
(...we don't want to take the cloning thing too seriously, because even with cloning things can go wrong... )  LOL




In my case, I used two washi tape strips with a bear peeking out from behind them.

I first colored the bear with watercolors and then added darker shades with alcohol ink markers. I used metallic watercolor to color the gift, party hat and cupcake. I cut out the bear and glued it as well as the washi tape to an embossed background that I had previously splattered with black ink.

 Added the B-Day sticker. That's it!



Have Fun!

Katzelkraft - Just one Smooch

Hi everyone, 
It's Katzelkraft day! - Played with the frogs again...




It's been a while since I made my last Mini-Moo card.... 
These 7x2.8 cm cards are totally cute and addictive. - Sometimes a bit tricky, but really fun to do.

I got the idea for this card when I was digging around and found some fashion stickers from my granddaughter. - As soon as I saw the mouth, I knew what I was going to do with it!

I stamped the frog, colored it with alcohol ink markers and stuck the mouth on. Cut out the frog and glued it to a leftover piece of gel print on which I had previously drawn a water lily pad. 
The bees (Penny Black) are also stamped, colored, cut out and glued on. - I'm kind of crazy, I know... hahaha
I created the sentiment on the computer and printed it out. Cut it into labels, stuck them on and outlined them with a black fineliner.


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

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!

Today starts a new challenge at the Day of the Month Card Club
This month we are celebrating 


 National Look Alike Day

Celebrate people who look like you. 
Look Alike Day is a fun holiday invented to celebrate identical twins, clones, 
copycats and anyone else who you look like or who looks like you.



Twins are discovering the world together, hand in hand.

I tore off a strip of patterned paper and pasted it to the bottom edge of the card. I stamped and masked the monkeys. Spritzed the card with Picked Raspberry (Distress Oxide). Stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with single letter stamps.  Done!



I wish you twice as much fun as usual !! ;)

Don't take life too seriously

Hi everyone!
I'm back with a new Katzelkraft card.
For today's card I used one of the fun gorillas and combined it with a quote I found on Pinterest.



I stamped the gorilla, colored it with watercolors and then added some darker accents with alcohol ink markers. Cut it out and put it aside. 

I drew the banana skirt to fit the gorilla's waist. Colored the skirt with alcohol markers and cut it out. Stamped a little flower, colored it in and cut it out as well. Glued the skirt and flower to the gorilla.
I then brushed and stenciled part of the card with Mowed Lawn (Distress Oxide) and spritzed on some black ink splatters. Pasted a few scraps of washi tape at the bottom, stamped a plant and then added the monkey.
The quote I stamped with single letters. They aren't all on the same level, but that makes it kind of interesting, right?

Hey, Chick

Hi everyone!
We are entering the second half of our current challenge at the Dream Factory.
 

Our Movie: 
Chicken Run 

Chickens, chicks, ducks, eggs, flowers, colorful or whatever else you can think of, 

__________But no Bunnies !!_________ 



I made the clouds using a homemade stencil and Salty Ocean (Distress Oxide). 
To make the straw, I first sponged the area with Fossilized Amber (Distress Oxide) and then used the edges of the ink pad to make strokes in all directions. 
I stamped the chicks and colored them with alcohol ink markers. Cut them out and added them to the card. 
Stamped the sentiment and added a strip of washi tape to the bottom.
Added some Wink of Stella to the metallic parts of the scooter.
