Just because

Hello together,

last week, I got a piece of really cool structured paper from a friend. I directly thought of the "Les jungle" from Katzelkraft and here we have the result.

I colored the ape with my Delta markers, put him on a circle out of the cool structured paper and mounted it on a teal piece of paper and finally on a black cardbase.

I white embossed the "Just because" sentiment from the Altenew Sketchy Floral stamp set and also white embossed the inside message from the same set.

Wish you all a nice week!

Altenew and Kathy Racoosin - what a great combination

Hello all,

just a few weeks ago, I watched the video of the really talented and "color-combination-queen" in my eyes - Kathy Racoosin.
She was coloring this great flower stamp from Altenew - and after that video, I knew I had to give this a try...

Kathy always says that there is no right or wrong - you just have to have fun!

So I ordered the stamp and today I tried to get out of my normal 'comfort zone' and used these totally different color combinations to get near the look of Kathys card...
I will NEVER ever get close, but I had a lot of fun coloring and I really like my result.

I used my Delta markers for the coloring.

Thank you Kathy for all your great videos and tips!!! You are so talented and always an inspiration for me!

Wish you all a relaxed sunday,

SSS wednesday challenge - Simon Says: We're Seeing Stars

Hello all,

today I will show you one of my new cards, which I created based on the Simon says stamp wednesday challenge which says: we're seeing stars... so here they are :-)

I just received the first My Monthly Hero kit for July. In this kit you have one of Tim Holtz Oxide Inks in "iced spruce". So I tried to create a background with this ink and water... 
I used the already retired "Out in Space" stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop and embossed a few stars in silver directly onto the background and the spaceship on a piece of vellum and foam mounted it onto the card.

The sentiment is also from this set - I inked it with Versafine black ink directly onto the background.I actually really like the effect that the embossed stars are a bit washed-out :-)

I finally added a few silver gemstones and glued the panel onto a 10.5 x 10.5 cm black cardbase and now we are ready to fly...

Wish you all a sunny day!

Simon says stamp wednesday challenge

Hello again...

today I'm showing you a very simple card. The topic for the Simon says stamp wednesday challenge says: USE PLAIN... so I did :-)

And this is my result - I used some old designer paper and the elephant stamp from Katzelkraft. Some golden enamel dots and that's it.

Wish you all a nice evening!

Ich bin auch ein Einhorn / I'm a unicorn

Hallo zusammen,

heute bin ich auf die Challenge von Paperminutes gestossen und da sind diese Woche Einhörner gefragt. Das ist eigentlich nicht so mein Thema und ich hab auch keine Einhorn-Stempel. Aber ich habe mir gerade das tolle "Les Jungles" Stampset von Katzelkraft gekauft... und da kam mir so eine Idee - seht selbst :-)
Today I stopped by at the challenge from Paperminutes. This week they want to see unicorns - but this is not really my things, and I do not even have a unicorn stamp. But I just bought the "Les Jungles" stamp set from Katzelkraft... and so I came up with this idea :-)

Den Löwen habe ich mit meinen Delta Markern coloriert. Den Schwanz habe ich nur oben an der Spitze angeklebt, damit das ganze etwas mehr "Bewegung" bekommt.
I colored my lion with my Delta Markers. The tail is just partly glued onto the cardbase, to get more dimension.

Es gibt auch noch eine 2te Variante mit passenden Farb-Spritzern im Hintergund. Mich würde interessieren, welche findet ihr besser?
I made a second card with color splatters in the background - which one is better? 

Den Spruch ist weiss embossed auf schwarzem cardstock und er ist aus dem "Crazy Talk" Set von Tim Holtz. Und das Horn ist eigentlich ein Eis am Stiel aus dem "Ice Cream Dream" Set von Simon Says Stamp.
The sentiment is white embossed on black cardstock and is from the "Crazy Talk" Set from Tim Holtz. And the horn is actually a popsicle stamp from the "Ice Cream Dream" Set from Simon Says Stamp.

Euch noch ein schönes Wochenende/have a nice weekend!
Euer Bastel-Troll
