A Touch Of Whimsy

Hello Friends, I am so excited to show you this new flower from Penny Black's "A Touch of Whimsy" catalog. Love this new paper from Basic Grey too....it's the perfect background for these bright flowers.

You make me smile
The name of this flower stamp is so fun...it's called "Pinstriped". I colored this image quickly with just a little bit of shading with my Copic markers. The black stitching on the Spellbinder frame is done with a super fine pen that I use often. You might have noticed that I have been using these enamel accents a lot lately. Below you can really see the dimension that you get with this product.

These are the new flowers from the catalog that I am in love with. I have so many images colored that I can't wait to layer them on a card and share with you. Just click on any image to see it larger.

Have you had a chance to stop by the Penny Black Blog this week. They have two new amazing ladies they have introduced to the team and I adore both of them. Here is the first one and here is the second one. I am sure they would love for you to give them a warm welcome.

Do you wonder how my photos turn out so white & bright. You might want to wander over to Lily Pad and read this post.....they have the answer for you &  Deborah teaches you how to make one of your own.

Tim Holtz new die .... love it

Hello Friends, How are things going? Did you have a nice weekend?
When I saw this new "Bigz Die" from Tim Holtz Alterations by Sizzix I knew I had to have it. Below you will see 17 reasons why. First, how about the card?

Just for You
I stamped my all purpose,  favorite background from Penny Black on the die & colored it with Copic markers. I added Glossy Accents to the wood and finished it off with an antique pin and button. The white trim on the card is from my doily stash. The sentiment is an SRM sticker.

Just for You

Now you will see why I had to have this die. These were created for centerpieces on the tables at my daughters Bat Mitzvah. In total there were 17 dress forms. The front & the backs were "painted" so that makes 34 designs. To this day I can't believe that I did this with some of my daughters help.

We sold each one at the party and donated the money to a local shelter. Each image was designed from mostly logos, printed on a transparency then blown up on a projector.

 Every one has some glitter on each side to add that shimmer. EACH one was drawn by hand by me. I used Sharpie markers to color the designs.

Here are a few favorites. This pattern was on one of my daughters Lily Pulitzer dress.

 This idea was inspired from a picture  hanging on the wall in the Betsey Johnson store.

This was designed from a Tory Burch shoe box. All of the blue is glitter. You should see how many colors of glitter I own!

Thanks for letting me share. Have a great week :) Hugs, Kathy

Catching up .....

Hello Friends, I hope you had a wonderful Easter or Passover and some good weather too.
Hello Friend
I wish I could say that I have been busy in the kitchen cooking up some yummy goodies.

Hello Friend
I finally had some time to color during our spring break and tonight I was determined to sit and finish a card for my sanity! It has been a log two weeks & I am so behind on emails. Cleaning, more cleaning and  more organizing is what has been occupying all of my time. Please accept my apologies if I oew you an email I promise to catch up in the next two days. 

Hello Friend

This digipaper from Jen Martakis was the perfect "wallpaper" for my little kitchen scene. I added some chocolate frosting to the inside of the bowl & drew some eyelashes on her eyes. Mimi's hair is is that new look where half of your hair on the bottom is blonder. I will list the supplies below.
By the way....have you seen the new Penny Black " Touch of Wimsey" catalog. You can download it here.  Have a great week and thanks for your patience! Hugs, Kathy
