Happy New Year !!!

Hello ... Hello my friends and a Happy New Year to YOU!! I have been thinking about this first post and just the right things to say to you but, I am much better at coloring than communicating. I hope your  new year is off to a great start with some new beginnings and I wish for you only happiness.
Happy New Year
I also have to thank you for a year of wonderful support to me and my blog. It's your warm fuzzy comments is what keeps me coming back and creating more. So a BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!

Happy New Year

I just had to create another layer skirt for this fashion gal like I did in this post here. I layered "Labels 8" to create a double frame with dimensional foam. I stamped the sentiments with  aged mahogany on the outside of the frame and stitched the edge. The next layer is dry embossed. White dots for falling snow.

Happy New Year

I listed the copic colors below that I used on her face, arms and legs. For the skirt I used a different color distress ink for each layer then applied icicle stickles.
Stay tuned I have a color chart to share with you soon and a giveaway as well. Thanks again for a great year! Hugs, Kathy



Tombo watercolor markers

Hello Friends, How are you doing? Feeling frosty? I hope you have something to smile about today.

NIght time snowman
I was in the mood to try something different and I hope you like it?  I wanted to try and create a snowman late into the evening without any moon. I am thinking that this is how dark a snowman would be under these circumstances. 
I used Tombo markers with regular white card stock. You have to be very careful that your paper doesn't pill. The background is distress ink.

Have a great day! Hugs, Kathy



Valentine mini cards

Hello Friends, I hope you had a wonderful and happy Christmas!! You always hear about talk of a let down after the holidays and I hope you are not experiencing any of that. Today at the Penny Black BLOG  Valentine mini cards are being featured by each designer.

3 Mini Cards
I just love this image ... the possibilities are endless.

Below is the set of two mini cards that I create for the blog. I used two oval nesties for the body of the trees and  Tombo markers but, any will do the trick. Don't you find it so relaxing to water color?

3 Mini Cards

For the grass I used worn lettuce distress ink and I wrapped the heart with some colored embroidery floss.

I have another card using this entire image that I will post another time because I still have to photograph it.

 The hearts and the flower are from this image to the left...another one of my favorites.

I forgot to mention the first card I used copic markers and the mini cards I used Tombo water color markers. Sorry I don't have a supply list today I have family waiting for me.

Have a great week. Hugs, Kathy


wine gift cards & an ornament

Hello Hello my friends, I started working on this a few weeks ago and never finished it. All I had to do was cut out the flowers and jazz it up. So I put on my thinking hat and used some tacky tape for the first time to apply the glitter strips.

Christmas Ornament
The gold at the bottom is part of the ornament hanger I used to photograph this ornament.
If you don't have a glue pen I really recommend one especially if you like glitter. The glue pen is how I applied the glitter accents on the flowers. The stamped images were colored with copic markers.

Christmas Ornament

Scroll down for my wine hangers..yup some more but, they are different.

The holly tags were stamped on watercolor paper with gold embossing powder then I applied the color with distress ink and lots of pearl water. Love the sheen on them.

I stamped the background first on the red panel, distressed them,  then used my heat gun to dry it. Once dry I used white embossing powder to stamp the sentiment. You might notice after distressing with the reds I used a tad of walnut on the edges only.

Is all of your shopping finished? Stockings hung by the chimney??

I hope you all have the magic of the Christmas spirit this weekend no matter what your religion is. There is just something magical at this time of year. So if it's appropriate Merry Christmas to you and thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog.  Thanks AGAIN! Hugs, Kathy
