Hello and a hug

Hello crafty friends, it's Kerstin here!

Today I have a cute fall card for you featuring one of my favorite stamp sets.

We had a long and warm summer and I really enjoyed it. But now it's time for the another wonderful season: fall! A good reason to start creating fall cards.

  • stamp and color your favorite critter and fuzzy cut, if you love to
  • create a background in a loose watercolor style and if you're like me add some sprinkles
  • die cut some leaves from the cool cuts pocket tag set and color them as well
  • glue the leaves on the ground and in the air (like falling leaves)
  • add a sentiment and be careful not to ruin it 

If you messed up part of the sentiment (like I did) you can stamp or heat emboss on some vellum, cut it out and glue it over the ruined sentiment.

Hello everyone! Chris  here with a little fun christmas card.  The naughty cute cat just "stole" the dog´s bag. 

When I hold a set in my hands, I love to use the accessories in different ways, as in this case the dogs bag with the cat.

  • first I stamped the images on water color paper and colored  (Distress Inks)
  • cut out all images and also cut out the bag with the dogs paws
  • arranged at the cat in different ways 
  • Background: blended with Distress oxides (tumbled glass, faded jeans)  - after it dryed I used the snowflake stencil with some mousse (in my case metallic gliding polish) 
  • stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder
  • then arranged all images on the card and  glued down with 3d Foam tape.

Just have a look at your Stampsets in your stash  - maybe you have some sets  which match together very well.


The cute stampset "Furry & Bright" / "Flauschige Weihnachten" is from the new Octobre release and available from friday 12th.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
