Katzelkraft Daisy Butterfly

Happy Friday! Ericka here continuing with the Katzelkraft theme of the week. I love the variety of styles Katzelkraft offers in their stamps and for today

I picked the Daisy Butterfly with a large bloom and gorgeous butterfly. Remember with all Katzelkraft stamps you will also want to make sure to buy Cling Mounting Foam since all the stamps come unmounted.

I used these beautiful Prism Pearlescent Powders to watercolor my image. A little bit goes a long way with these color packed powders when you just add water.

Once the image was dry, I added a little colored pencil for shading and Hunkydory Sparkles for additional shine.

I used the Katzlekraft Dreamer Sentiment on vellum. The sentiments in this set are unique and I love the font.

Katzelkraft Bugs & Insects

Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today!
We are showcasing Katzelkraft stamps this week.  I was delighted, as you can imagine!

I am right now totally into the insect set from Katzelkraft. I made a whole card series with them. You can see the first card I made HERE. I masked of a narrow strip at the bottom and on the left. Sponged with lilac and pink distress inks. I stamped the flowers and the insect. I colored it with water brush markers. I added Stickles to the flowers and the insect wings. I thought this card can live without a sentiment.....

Here are the stamp supplies I used:

Ready for That Close-up

Hello, everyone! Toni here with you on this fine day. This week we're focusing on Katzelkraft, one of my absolute favorite brands!  I'm using one of the Katzelkraft Frogs and the divan from Katzelkraft In the Living Room.

I started the card by sponging Prism Ink Dusky Rose and Camellia Pink onto the card front. These are amazing pinks, I must say. 

I then sponged Delicata Gold with the PaperArtsy JOFY PS147 Stencil. Trust me; it's waaaay glamorous.

I followed that up with Prism Ink French Navy and the Visible Image Meshing Around stencil as a backdrop for the divan.

Next I stamped my Katzelkraft images and colored them up with Copics.

I love the colors on this card--the pink and blue always look good together then throw in that pop of green--marvelous!

My final step was to stamp the Katzelkraft Carpe Diem sentiment along with a few hearts in Versafine Onyx Black. I think we're ready for that close-up, Mr. DeMille!

That's it for me today! I'll see you next week.  In the meantime, why don't you check out the new products that have come into the TFS shop!

It's Mardi Gras! Let the Good Times Roll!

Greetings! Kathi here with my Tuesday post! This week TFS' DT is featuring Katzelkraft Stamps

Since today is Mardi Gras, I decided to create a little scene with a "Let the Good Times Roll" card with Katzelkraft's fun and fabulous Robots 1 Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set and Robot Dog

The robot and dog were stamped and masked, then the background was inked with the lightest blue from the Blue Ombre Prism Ink pad. The Microchip Stencil by Stamperia was placed on the background and the same blue ink was sponged onto the image panel.The tape covering the ground area was lifted and Thundercloud Prism Ink was sponged onto the image panel.

The masks were lifted and The Robot and the Robot Dog were colored with Copic markers and accents were added with a Glaze pen. I used my label maker to create the sentiment. 

If you'd like to find out how I made my card, roll on over to my blog, Kat's Tales of Stamping!

Katzelkraft Steampunk Mixed Media Bird Tag

Hello friends, it's Autumn Clark from SewPaperPaint with you today to share a mixed media tag featuring a gorgeous stamp set by Katzelkraft called Carte Postale.  I am new to working with Katzelkraft stamps, but am already addicted!  I purchased a sheet of EZMount so I could use my stamps with my stamp platform easily. 

I love creating backgrounds from stamps, especially using small stamps to make repeat patterns.  I chose the thin lines stamp and stamped it on my watercolor paper tag up and down horizontally, then added a few vertical stamps to make a cross hatch design.  I embossed the stamping with Seth Apter's Baked Texture in Ancient Amber along the center of my tag and added an older Emerald Creek EP along the edges for contrast.  I inked the tag using direct to paper (DTP) with Prism Ink Pads in Smoked Paprika, Wild Mushroom, Slate Grey, and Roasted Coffee.  Next, I added some die cut gears, which I embossed with Seth's Chunky Rust.  I glued the gears to my tag as shown.  

I inked a panel with the above mentioned pads and stamped the bird and leaf motif twice each.  I cut one bird into a tag, then cut the wing and clock from the second to layer.  I attached a brad to the wing so it could flap back and forth making an interactive element.  ;0  I stamped parts of the postcard image and in Roasted Coffee to add contrast.  I used the same ink to add watercolor shadows to the image.  

I mounted the smaller tag over the larger with some vintage holey paper, sisal fibers and the fussy cut leaves.  I attached some motivational stickers to finish it off.  I adore this stamp set and can't wait to use it again.  Make sure to check out all of the Katzelkraft stamps at

Have a great week!  Autumn

Enjoy The Little Things

Happy Friday Topflight fans! Ericka here today with another fun PaperArtsy plaque. I've been having so much fun with this PaperArtsy ETS 34 set that I wanted to make something bigger than a card.

I added some fresco paint in Summer Sky and Twilight  as well as some Distress Paint in Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron. I stamped the images in black archival ink and added white gel pen to these great designs. There are so many pretty details to all of these stamps and you can make so many different and unique combinations.

I added the flowers and butterfly from the the PaperArtsy ETS 28 set.

For more details on how I created this picture, stop by my blog Strangely Creative.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! Cheers, Ericka!

Happy Birthday with Carabelle Studio

Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today!
Carabelle Studio came out with some wonderful new stamps - including this cute set that I used for my card.

I immediately fell in love with those quirky animals! So I squeezed almost all of them onto my card. I colored them with water brush markers and water brush pens. I used watercolor paper as background.  The sentiment is from Katzelkraft. I trimmed my card base and used green card stock to frame it.

Here are the stamp supplies I used:
