  17. I’ve had that Rats stamp set as well as the Darkroom Door on my wishlist for some time. You have just convinced me that I “need” them. I use my other Katzelkraft stamps all the time.

    Terrific card and thanks for all the coloring tips. I often try to use too many colors when coloring and it never looks right.

    Masking is awesome (learned it from the Frugal Crafter!). When I get a new stamp set it’s fun to try them out by making a mask right away.

    I need to remember to heat emboss my stamping more often. I like Versafine as it’s the best black ink out there, but I’ve smudged it more than a few times. I also sometimes forget to powder my card, but it’s not as important with the clear embossing powder.

  32. I really do adore Katzelkraft stamps and I love what you did with this card. ❤ But, I really loved your video Lindsay! My favorite part was you holding the stamp in place for a few moments to allow transfer of the ink. I've never seen that before, but know it to be true. Most people either press super hard to get a good impression or rock the stamp. What you really need to do is just hold it still for a few moments. Bravo for you! Today's my b-day too! Yay! Thanks for your Blog entry!!!
