Happy Birthday Rachel ...this is for YOU!!

Today is my step mother's Birthday and she's 70 Years old. Rachel is an amazing woman and I couldn't ask for a better step mom! She's is beautiful inside and out so I had to create a special card for her.

To change the cupcake (there is hearts on it) I traced the outside of the cupcake and then stamped the flowers on top. I was looking for one of the creations that you see on the fancy cupcakes and cake shows. The butterfly is in the background of a stamp so I stamped it many times, colored them with Copic markers and applied Gloss Accents. I cut some of the wing to paste on the inside so when I bent them sideways you would see the top layer instead of the underside. I hope I'm making sense??

Here is an adorable picture of Rachel and my dad. Happy BIRTHDAY RACHEL. I love you!

CG157 Large Cupcake
CG124 Floating Flowers (stamped in Hero Hues Lavender Dye Ink)
CG119 Flourish Background Stamp (Ranger distress in "Storm" on this background)
CL158 Cupcakes (used the sentiment) (Clear Design stamps)
LP141 Together (small butterfly is from this woodblock set of 4 stamps)

K5358 Floral Scallop (on top of cupcake)


Caardvarks Challenge and a Birthday Card for Card Patterns Challenge


This is for the challenge at Caardvarks
Antique Engravings Cl383
Hero Hues Note Card


This Birthday Card is late and it's for a young boy so I reached for this clear set from Hero Arts (CL412 Prince Charming). I used some distress ink and Copic makers. If you need more specific details I would love for you to email me. I'm trying to wrap things up for Spring Break.

DigiKits Jen Martakis and a few more

 I love this DigiKit by Jen Martakis...the colors are soft and pretty and the kit has so many wonderful weather elements. Check it out HERE

 These little birds are so fun and they are from Wilna Furstenberg and it's available HERE

 This DigiKit is available  HERE and this particular kit is the full digikit. You can purchase the different genders separately.

 I needed to make a non gender baby card and I was delighted to see this DigiKit by Pamela Funk-Parr called Scrap originals with all these great baby elements. I decided to print the stork in black and white so I could color him and the baby blanket to make it a non gender baby blanket. The sentiment is from SRM stickers.

Have a great day. Many fun things coming up. Hugs,Kathy


My Last Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge as a Guest Designer

                                                                            Happy Thoughts                

It was a fun month joining The Sweet Stop designers and a big thanks to them for having me! This week I mixed the sketch up a bit and I used my sentiment as my focal point. I stamped the background and colored the flowers to match the new Hero Arts butterfly that's so much fun to color. I stamped the swirly frame with colored ink, colored the swirls and added some dots. Have a great weekend....spring break is here and we are trying to make a plan today to go possibly to Florida. Do you have any plans?

Another Sketch from The Sweet Stop

This week it's a sketch with a spin....add some that's a fun challenge.
HERE is the Sweet Stop's blog so you can check out their wonderful design team and what they did with this challenge.



I immediately took stock of my FUN FLOCK and found some bright yellow that would work perfect for my bunny ears. I stamped the ears in VersaMark, "embossed" with the Stamp& Bond (it's like a glue) after heat setting it then you add the fun flock (almost embossing it again but with the flocking) , shake off the excess and heat set it again. Yes, my studio has a soft light yellow dust all over with a spring like feeling.


 I must say after a long week I really enjoyed coloring this gal from The Greeting Farm. The background stamps on the card are from Hero Arts. The large "Easter"  and sentiment is from "Easter"set  at SRM stickers .

Here is another card made with the same sheet of stickers from SRM available HERE and their blog Here

Hippity Hop

I hope you have a spring like weekend. Hugs,Kathy

Sharing Some Hybrid Digi Cards

Hello Friends and Blog Friends,
I just want to tell you how much your comments mean to me...they really brighten my day  but, please don't feel like you need to leave one. As I'm sure you know each comment comes through in my email inbox and I leave it there as a reminder to get to your blog. It's been so dismal and gloomy here that I feel super grouchy and just want to complain about anything and everything AND I have a bad cold!  I hope you week is starting out better. Sorry to be a "Debbie Downer".... Hugs,Kathy

Just Saying

For this card I decided to recolor some of the papers and butterflies in this DigiKit. After cutting the butterflies I used my Cuttlebug to add some texture to the wings. This DigiKit is called This Year by Pamela Parr available HERE and the sentiment stamp HERE

Sending Smiles

These spring papers and elements are from Holly Brook Jones called Waiting For Spring. I enlarged the butterflies, cut them out, stamped some text on them, distressed the wings and added some faux stitching with a white gel pen available HERE.

Big City


These digi papers from Vinnie Pearce called Art Papers are so dramatic and I think they are perfect for a masculine card. This particular paper looks like a city scape to me so I paired it with a Hero Arts stamp called Cityscape. I used pop dots for one of the buildings and added Glossy Accents to make the windows look realistic. DigiKit available HERE and the stamp HERE


The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge and SRM Sticker Challenge with a Great Prize

Hi Everyone,
It's Saturday (yay!) and time for another Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge and honestly.... I really do love their sketches.  Please visit their blog to get more info and to link up your card.



This stamp is one of Hero Arts new wood stamps and I didn’t love it but, purchased the stamp any way. Now that I have used it and colored it I LOVE IT! First  I colored the background with blue (Boo) and scribble colored the flowers (RV06)with abandon because I knew I would be adding cut flowers on top . I just need to stay in the lines but, didn’t need to color perfectly or evenly (I added some distress ink in the center of the flowers to insure that there isn't any white peeking out). Then I stamped the flowers again and cut on the inner flower (not following the outside edges of the flower) . I pulled out some ranger inks and distressed the flowers for my color and curled up the edges of the flowers. The orange paper is Poppy from HA and I stamped the feather grass with Poppy chalk ink before adding my stitching and layers.


Hero Art Stamps: S5317  Large Fine Flowers and CL282  Feather Grass. Poppy Paper and Poppy Chalk Ink
