My Sailboat

Hello again, I'm on a role creating card, which frankly is a bot of a miracle.

For this card I used another digital stamps from Lotv Digi Shop called Sailing Boat.

I printed the image on Neenah 80lb card stock, cut it out with a circle die and coloured it with Copic markers.


I combined the coloured image with design paper from Authentique called Seafarer, which I also used to paper piece the sail on the sail boat and created a 5 1/2" square card.



Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Kathy

Bonfire Night

Today I am back to share another card.

This time I used the Bonfire Night digital stamp from Lotv Digi Shop, which I coloured with my Copic markers.

We Go Together Like Milk and Cookies

Hello again, I'm back agin to share a card that I created using another digital stamp from Lotv Digi Shop.

This time my card is a 5" square card which I layered with a combination of design paper and card stock.

I printed the digital stamp onto Neenah, 80lb Solar White card stock and then coloured it with Copic markers. Then I cut it out with a stitched square die, layered it with card stock and popped it on the card front with some foam tape.

I'm so happy with how the finished card turned out.

Decisions, Decisions

Hello and long time no hear.

Today I'm back to share a card I created using a digital stamp that I bought from LOTV Digi Shop.  The image is called Emma Shoes and she is just adorable.

I one thing I have to get to used to to using digital stamps is sizing.  I printed her a little big bigger then I thought so I ended up creating a 5 1/2" square card and I'm very happy with how it turned out.

I did actually colour the image first and then I searched through my 6x6 paper pads to find some design paper that would go well with the coloured image. The paper pad I found was called Fifth Avenue from Melissa Frances which had the perfect colours and romantic feel that I though would go perfect with the image.

I also dyed some white seam binding with Cotton Candy spray from Lindys' Stamp Gang to match better with the paper and colouring.

It was fun to break out some of my older supplies, including supplies to create a stick pin that would go with the feel of the card.

Here are a few pictures of my card.









Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you enjoy my card.

Have a great day! Kathy

Cheers

Surprise, I'm actually back to share a card I have created for a friends 50th birthday party last night.

I took quite a long hiatus from really any kind of crafting, ever since I start a new full time job at the end of June.  I'm loving the job but the motivation to craft totally flew out the window.

My friends birthday  gave me at least a little bit of motivation to create a card, although as you can see from the picture, I still haven't gone back to colouring with my Copics.

I recently bought some new stamp sets from MFT Stamps, so I hoping I can get back into colouring too.

Here are a couple of pictures of the card I created using posting products from MFT Stamps.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence-Birthday Cuties, Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz - Shabby French (words on wine bottle label)
Dies: MFT Stamps - Wine Service, Cheers, Blueprints 13 (Panel & Stars)
Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
Other: Recollections 110lb White  card stock and 65lb kraft card stock, Recollections Black & Gold Halloween 6x6 paper pad,  MFT Stamps 100lb Paver Red card stock, Craft Medley - Dazzling Metallics Glass Beads,  Foam Tape

Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by and I hope you have a great day!

I hope to be back soon with another creation, Kathy

Jolly and Happy Christmas - 6x6 Mini Album

Hello my friends, I hope you had a great week.

Today I am sharing a  6" x 6" Christmas mini album that I created using the Say Freeze 12" x 12" paper pad from Craft Smith.  I had already created a 9" x 7 1/2" album using the same paper pad and since I had quite a bit of design paper left I wanted to create another album.

For this new album, I used the tutorial from Laura's Craft Zone YouTube channel.  Her instructions are very clear and easy to follow.  I only made very small modifications to the her instructions to create an album that worked with the design paper I used.



Here is the original album along side the new album.

















Below is a list of the supplies I used to create this album.

Grafix - 12 x 12 medium weight natural chipboard
Craft Smith (Michaels) - Say Freeze 12 x 12 design paper
Recollections - 65lb red card stock
Martha Stewart - Rings : Around The Page punches
Hug Snug - black seam binding
Adhesive - 1/4" & 1/2" Scrappy Tape , Nuvo - Deluxe Liquid Adhesive
Ribbon from my stash

Thank you so much for coming by and checking out my newest creation.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Kathy
