It's one of those days

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my blogpost for Katzelkraft where today I am sharing a clean and simple card.



Sometimes it is really nice to make clean and simple cards. This was was fun to make and quick too. I stamped the girl with the umbrella and the sentiment, coloured the girl with Copic Markers and lengthened the line under her feet to go across the card. I added some colour underneath it too.  

I used the following stamps:

This week at Vera Lane Studio

Hello everyone,

Happy Thursday !

Today I have an art journal spread and a card to share which I made for Vera Lane Studio.


I coloured the pages with Distress Oxide inks and then stencilled the flowers onto them, also using Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool. I added some stamping and some paint around the edges to frame the pages. The girl is new this week and is from "Pretty Ladies", so is the sentiment. I coloured her with Copic markers and cut her out. 

You'll find the Pretty ladies HERE.

I also made this card with the collage sheet "Fat Cats". I used some pattern paper, washitape and a sentiment from another set to complete the card. Lastly I drew a line around the card.

Happy freaking everything

Hello everyone,

welcome to this post for AALL & Create. I have made a card this time and there is a process video if you'd like to see how I made it.


and here's how, scroll further down for the video ! 


I brayered yellow and turquoise paint on the card, then used a babywipe and this stencil to wipe some of the turquoise paint away. 


Next I toned it down by brayering white paint over it and then added stamping. 


I stamped the cat on white card stock, coloured him and cut him out. 


Here is the finished card. You can see the whole process in the video below.

Get your happy on

Hello everyone,

It's Friday and that means a new post for Katzelkraft. I have been revisiting all the animals because they are so cute ! For today I made a card :


I used a gel printed piece of paper for the background. This was a mop up page.
I stamped the elephant, coloured him with Copic Markers and cut him out. I also stamped him on the card panel and added the shading with coloured pencils. I glued the coloured image on the panel and lastly added the sentiment. The panel was then glued on to a white card base. 

I used two stamp sets:

Come rain or shine

Hello everyone,

Time for my second inspiration piece for the Country View Challenges May Challenge which is all about opposites. I must say, I did struggle with this and I didn't really like my first project. This one is much better; I had a long think about it and came up with rain and sun and this is what it looks like:


We hope you will play along with us because we would love to see what sort of opposites you come up with. You could also win the £20 voucher for the shop ! 

Of course there is a process video. You will find it HERE or you can click on the pic below:

This week at Vera Lane Studio

Hello everyone,

and Happy Thursday to you ! For this week's Vera Lane Studio project I have made three projects !
This is the first one :


It is a card and I used a gel printed background on which I stuck some washi tape to ground the mushroom and the fairy. These images are new for this week; I printed them and coloured them with Copic Markers. I added one of the tiny words and I think it came out great.

You'll find the Tiny Words HERE


The second project is this one:


It is a page in my journal. I used another gelli printed background but added some dark green paint with a brayer at the bottom for her to stand on. I also added a tiny bit of the same paint at the top. I used a rubber stamp for the the black lines along the edges. The fairy is from the new set Heart Fairies and I paired her with one of the Tiny Words (see above). She was coloured with Copic Markers.

You'll find the Heart Fairies HERE.

The last of my projects for today is a postcard:


Again this is a gelli printed background. I cut out one of the Fat Cats from the Collage sheet, printed the cupcake from the set Charlie. I coloured the cupcake with Copic and added washi tape and two of the Tiny Words (see above).

Little Frida

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog where today I am sharing an AJ spread made with AALL & Create stamps and stencils.


and here's how:


I painted the pages with a creme coloured acrylic paint and then brayered over some green paint along the edges. When dry I did the same with Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I used the same ink with the stencil.


I then rubbed the stencil with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide, sprayed it with water and used it as a 'stamp'. I love this effect. 


Next I stamped part of the #146 stamp with Worn Lipstick and the stitchlines from set #147 with black ink along the edges. I used the acrylic block to get a good impression. 


These blocks are flexible so you can bend them with the curve of your book. Mine always get very wonky from all the stuff I put in them..


Next I stamped and coloured little Frida. I wanted to stamp her in the book as well and then cut off the legs and arms of this one so I could use her without a white border. Unfortunately I mis stamped and had to cut her out with the white border to hide my mistake... 


I added some black stamping and the sentiment and some washi tape. 





I have used the following AALL & Create products:

Border Acrylic Block
Stamp set #146 - Kings and Queens
Stamp set #147 - Zipp it 
Stamp set #184 - Little Frida
Stencil #59 - Weathered Tiles
