christmas fairy altered -- new blog update

Hello Friends, How are you today?  I hope you have a spring in your step with the warmer temps or cooler ones depending on where you live. Today I have a card to share and an a update on The Daily Marker blog makeover. First lets start with the card. 
This adorable girl from Penny Black is a holiday stamp that can easily be altered into a sweet fairy card or a pretty girl by cutting off the wings and wand after stamping.
If you are new to Copic markers I suggest using a blending set because the colors coordinate so beautifully the work is done for you.... they all work together in harmony!  If you have a few of the colors in a blending set make note of other colors from the sets to add to your collection. 
The background was super fun & super easy to create using one of the stencils from Simon Says. I like to use a dauber to add the ink to the cardstock. After using the stencil with sea glass ink just rotate your paper and repeat with a different ink like mint.

I think you will enjoy rotating your stencils to create a new & interesting patterns. I added some faux stitching lines to this background to mimic a plaid pattern. The cardstock that matches mint and sea glass finish your card off easily.

cardstock day3 and winner announced

Hello Friends, How are you today? I wanted to share my last card in my mini series of cardstock cards. Have you ever tried Simons cardstock?  Their paper is a 100# weight and it feels luxurious before you even look at the card because of the weight and body of the paper. The feathers were created with my leftover scraps of paper. (The paper was created out of cardstock that I glued together for "Day One here" & "Day Two here"). The stamp and sentiment you can find here. The postage stamp edge die cut created a simple window for the feathers... have you notice that  I use the die a LOT?

Did you see the blog hop for Simon? Did you see that you can win some cardstock and ink BEFORE it's released? Check out the post here.

I DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO SHARE THE FULL COLLECTION OF THE NEW RELEASE during the hop so I thought I would here. You can purchase sets & the entire collection below or individually. Scroll down to see the card supply list and or the winner. 

The winner of Simons April card kit as seen in this post is Alanna. A big congrats to you Alanna.
A big thanks to you all for the visit and in my next post I will have an update on the new blog. Thanks again, Kathy
