Katzelcraft at the Craft Barn, oh yeah!

This week at the Craft Barn Blog  the design team have been using Katzelcraft stamps. Quality red rubber and brilliant design :0) I've had the Bird set for a couple of years, I just love 'em! and come back to them time and time again,

My card was made using the Trees 1 set, it has two very stylised trees and a pretty Christmas scene. I took one of the trees set it on it's side and stamped in Versamark clear ink then embossed with white detail powder.

The pretty bird came from the sheet of Birds, there are so many on this sheet they'll keep me going for years! I just love the sweeping tails of this elegant bird, two tiny orange gems, don't forget you can colour clear gems any colour with Copics or Promarkers (handy huh?) I used Distress ink Broken China behind the bird to give more definition and I'm done!

Thank you for visiting here today, I love to read your comments. I appreciate each and every one and I do my best to visit you in return:0) Bye for now xx

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked if the Craft Barn have an owl stamp like their Logo, I'm sorry to say at the moment there isn't one but it may be possible in the future, I will keep you posted, Gay x

This is such a gorgeous design, Gay! I love the blue sponging on the white embossing and the red strip down the centre finishes it off so nicely!
