  1. I love it, i will use your idea but using the cats and dogs I don’t have the rats … thank you, but the way you convince me to buy the arteza brush pens .


  2. I really like the whimsical designs, and the comic strip idea is so unique! I’m off to buy more stamps!


  3. 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.


  4. Lindsay, the card is too funny with that cats face(cat lover here!).TFS your ideas, you are amazingly creative!


  5. I think you’re card is adorable. I seem to be always in the need for belated cards since time goes by so rapidly of late ending up in my missing a lot of events and birthdays!


  6. 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!!!


  7. I love your videos Lindsey and I love the humor from Katzelkraft. I’m not a cutesy stamper so I live to see my kind of stamps.


  8. Such a cute card! I’m a big fan; love to see you use water color pens. First saw Katzelkraft stamps on your Youtube video.


  9. I love the card. I missed the printing in the card. Is that a stamp or did you write the sentiment? I’ve been looking for cute belated stamps, I have an issue with mailing cards ont time. 🙂


  10. Fabulous card!!! I use the word “rats” all the time when things go wrong so I “need” that stamp set!!! It’s now on my wish list!!!


  11. Eeeek, I have that rat set 🙂 Now I just need to get the framed stamp and I can create one. Thanks for all the videos. Such a super awesome card!


  12. I totally discovered Katzelkraft stamps, because of Topflight! I just laugh every time I see their stamps – such fun illustrations and I keep adding more and more to my stamping stash. Happy 1st Birthday, Topflight! Wishing many many wonderful yrs of success!


  13. Oh Lindsay, I love your card! So fun!! I’ve been on the fence about getting these Arteza markers but, the more you show them, the more I want them! What fun stamps too. Thank you for sharing!


    1. Congrats Jean! You won the giveaway! I’ll give your email to Donna at Top Flight Stamps so she can send you your gift certificate code:)


  14. I love the rat on your card. I have a couple of the Katzlekraft stamp sets and they make me smile each time I use them!


  15. Great Card!! I love your art and I love someone with Autism!! Thanks for participating, and for the inspiration. Have a great day.
