Happy freaking everything !

Hello everyone,

I have made a tag with one of the latest new AALL & Create stamp sets "Moody Kittens.  This particular one cracks me up. He sure looks moody !


And here's how I made it:


I painted the tag with green and yellow acrylic paints using a brayer. After it was dry I rolled over turquoise in the same way, put the stencil on it and wiped some of the wet paint away through the stencil. I then took the stencil off and wiped away some more until I was happy with the result. 


Next I brayered over some white acrylic paint and stamped the background here and there. I chose the 234rd of March to stamp because that is when I plan for this to go live... 


Next the moody cat. I stamped him on white card stock and on the tag too. I coloured him with my Copic Markers. 


Ready for cutting out... 



Here is the finished tag again; I glued the cat on the tag over the top of the one I stamped directly. I did place some washi tape under him so he has something to stand on. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

I have used :

Stencil #30
Stamp set #171 - Moody Kittens
Stamp set #107 - Date it

Explore the world..

Hello everyone,

Welcome to this Friday's blogpost for Katzelkraft. I have made a card for today. I have used one of the birds of the 'les piafs' set which is an older set.



This card was very simple to make. I started with the white embossed sentiment. When that was done I smooshed Distress Oxide Ink on my craft sheet and dipped the card panel into it, drying in between layers, until I was happy. I used : Mustard seed and Broken China. I then stamped the bird, coloured him with Copic Markers and cut him out, and glueing him to the panel as if he were standing on the sentiment. Lastly I added white splatters and a white line along the edges. 

I have used the following stamps:

Be Happy

Hello everyone, 

I was asked by Abs to make some samples with the new release stamps for the AALL & Create Hochanda shows ! Of course I couldn't say no to that ! 

This is the last of 6 samples I made and it is a postcard:


I really like making vintage things as well so that is what I did. Unfortunately I got carried away and forgot to take WIP photos.... 

I started with a piece of Mixed media paper and used Distress Oxides in Ground Espresso and Antique linen smooshed onto my craft sheet and dipped the card in it until I was happy. 
I did some stamping with the same Ground Espresso and then took Crushed Olive and used it to rub over the Lushy Leafy stencil and printed it on the card. 
I also used that to colour the Lady bug, the sentiment (Both stamped on book pages) and the edges of the card. 
I doodled around the edges with a pencil. 






I have used the following AALL & Create materials:

Stamp #161  Ladybug
Stamp #142 Edison Game
Stamp set #125 For the Record
Stencil #80 Lushy Leafy

Bloom love grow

Hello everyone, 

I was asked by Abs to make some samples with the new release stamps for the AALL & Create Hochanda shows ! Of course I couldn't say no to that ! 

This one is a 6 x 6 panel which I love making ! 


and here's how:


I used a brayer and two shades of blue acrylic paint to get some colour on this panel which is cut from Mixed Media paper. I added some stamping, partly with blue Archival ink and partly with white paint. Just make sure to clean your stamps straight away ! 


Next I added some stencilling. I used VersaMark ink and this fab embossing powder by Seth Apter. 


I then added some more stamping with Orange Distress Oxide ink and added the silhouette with modelling paste. 


Next I stamped some flowers and made a sentiment from some of the words of this fab stamp set by Tracy ! 


I coloured the flowers with Copic markers and added some orange on the sentiment. I didn't use this in the end because it was much whiter than the silhouette so I found some paper that was about the same shade of white and matted it on black card stock. 






I have used the following AALL & Create materials:

Stamp #161  Ladybug
Stamp set #140 Doodled blooms
Stencil #80 Lushy Leafy
Stencil #75 Illusion

Normal is an illusion

Hello everyone, 

I was asked by Abs to make some samples with the new release stamps for the AALL & Create Hochanda shows ! Of course I couldn't say no to that ! 

This is an art journal page. Of course you can make this in a journal.... 


and here's how:


I used a brayer and a piece of Mixed media paper to get some colour on the paper, green and yellow acrylic paint in this case. I then stencilled the tree rings on it using blue acrylic paint. 


Next I did some background stamping, brayered white paint over it and added the silhouette stencil to my paper. I used Graphite paste for that. It has tiny little bits of glitter in it. 


Next I used modelling paste for the sentiment that is on this stencil. 


I stamped another sentiment and a pointing finger to add... but was not happy with the model paste words... 


... so I decided to use a pink paint pen and colour them. I added the other sentiment on the top and added some doodling along some of the edges. 




I have used the following AALL & Create materials:

Stamp #161  Ladybug
Stamp set #125 For the record 
Stencil #63 Wood pile
Stencil #75 Illusion

Illustrate your life

Hello everyone, 

I was asked by Abs to make some samples with the new release stamps for the AALL & Create Hochanda shows ! Of course I couldn't say no to that ! 

This one is a tag and it is quite clean and simple:



And here's how I made it:



I stamped the image twice, once with VersaFine ink which is nice and black and once with Memento because I wanted to colour the pencils with my Copics and Memento is good for that. I also stamped the right hand side once more with Memento to use as sentiments. 


After colouring the pencils and some of the words I cut everything out and adhered it to the tag at the bottom.


I matted the words on black card stock as well the whole tag. I added a ring around the whole which I coloured with my Copic Markers too. I couldn't resist gluing the words back on crooked ! 




I have used the following AALL & Create materials:

Stamp #165 - Numbered pencils by Tracy Evans.
