An ornament for the Penny Black blog

Hello Friends, I hope you had a nice weekend? Did you set your clocks back like we did here in the east?? It was nice to have that extra hour! Today I am sharing a chipboard ornament I made for the PB blog. If you feel like making a comment maybe you will be inclined to leave it at PB's blog instead?
Stop back tomorrow I will announce the winner of my blog candy and have a new Spellbinder new die to give away :)

Jingle all the way

I love the quality of this chipboard ornament. In the center is a die shape from  CC&M that I traced and cut out to create a window.

Jingle all the way
Sometimes I color on top of the chipboard but, for this one I traced the ornament onto white paper, cut it out, stamped, distress it and then glued it down AFTER I CUT OUT THE WINDOW. If you have questions please feel free to email me. Have a great day! Hugs, Kathy

Tiffany Doodles has a new challenge

and that means BIG prizes. The challenge is to create anything other than a card! Here are more details.
I didn't have to think long or hard about what I wanted to create. In this post in case you missed it I made a decorative "can" for my colored pencils. I needed another one for my water color pencils.

While I was at it I took a smaller can from my recycle bin and made one for my Tombo brush tip markers. In case you noticed ....I  need more! These markers are fantastic for coloring directly on the rubber stamp, spritzing and then stamping on your paper.

85% if these butterflies are colored with distress inks!! The only thing I used my copics for was the oval shapes you see below. A tip I learned from Jennifer was to use glossy accents as a resist. After coloring the ovals I applies glossy accents and left them to dry.

This finger sponge dabbers are perfect for distressing and coloring small areas. Every craft room should own some of these! I use my sooooo much :)

Just rub the color around and let dry. Take any marker with a medium tip and trace over lines. This is  easy for this application and the darker lines will cover any bits of ink that went over the lines.

Then add some white dots. I'll be back with an ornament tomorrow. In the meantime I am inking some of Penny Black's NEW Valentine stamps. YOU WILL LOVE THEM. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hugs, Kathy


Creative Cuts and More - FOUR days left to enter!

Hello Friends, I have to tell you that this is my first experience with Creative Cuts and  I was pleasantly surprised!! Creative Cuts is sponsoring Caardvarks and I LOVE  what the DT designed for you. Here is the link to see for yourself. 

I have many many collections including a Santa collection that I bring out every year. I adore this Penny Black Santa and the chipboard frame (from Creative Cuts) was a perfect way to make him shine.

To color the chipboard all I did was press it right onto my distress ink. Right on the pad. So easy!


I cut out the mustache and the hat after deciding that the specs were way to difficult to cut out. If you don't like to color this Santa is super easy and fast.

I love creating scenes with windows and usually have to create them myself so I loved having this window shaped card from CC&M.

Season's Greetings
The tree is so glittery and fantastic in person. You can see a little of the shine below.

Season's Greetings

This is how I created the background. I started with a small circle of yellow in the center only. Here is how I distressed the blues.


Check out Creative Cuts and More's  website you will be blown away by the variety that they offer. Next time I will be doing some of their adorable boxes!

The count down is on! There is only four more days until I choose the winner for my blog candy. Check it out here.  
I can't believe it's Friday! Have a great weekend! Hugs,Kathy
