BLOG CANDY to celebrate my BD

Blog Birthday

Hello Friends, How are you today?? Summer is just flying and before July ends I want to mention that I have been blogging for 2 years this month and I have YOU to thank!! Thank you for visiting on a regular basis & thank you for lending your ear, perhaps leaving a comment or just peaking in. I want you to know that I appreciate you and I am so grateful for you all!! It's so wonderful to have this forum to share with you. My friends and family can't really understand what it all means so it's great that you do. To celebrate I gathered some of my favorite stamping supplies to give away (better known as "blog candy"). Here are some of the goodies.

The card is included too.
Happy Birthday to me :)
I used the cupcake from this stamp. I doodled the design on her dress with this Copic marker. I have had this glitter for awhile and I think it's more irridesent than what's available now. (It's called Sugar Coating.)  For the cherry on top of the cupcake I added red glitter and then added a large glop of Glossy Accents. Thank you again for helping to make my blogging experience so wonderful. Have a happy day. Hugs, Kathy


If you would like a chance to win this blog candy what you need to do to leave you name on the Inlinkz list. I would really appreciate it if you could post TO  YOUR blog sidebar linking it back to my blog OR mention about this giveaway on your Facebook or twitter or Flickr.

Mimi the mermaid in a fish bowl

Hello Friends, How are you today?? I hope this adorable Mimi will cool you off or make you feel cooler. It's been so HOT here that I think I could fry an egg on the sidewalk. How are you keeping cool during this heat wave??
Splish Splash




I love this transparent set too. 

Are you interested in how I created this fishbowl? It's super easy!
First stamp the "Delicate Pattern" background stamp onto your yellow papers with Spiced Marmalade. Stamp the inside and place your sentiment.
This SRM sticker was perfect for the inside.

Stamp this globe from Penny Black with Memento. Draw an arc with a pencil and cut off to create the top of the fish bowl.
Color the globe with Booo & Boo. Color the fish with Y38& YR04.



Add some Tumbled Glass, Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy distress ink to the bowl & base with a dauber.
Lay some paper down to create a mask to create the waves and distress with Tumbled Glass.

Flip your mask over for the second layer placing your mask further down toward the bottom. Use a  darker blue distress ink. I used Broken China.

 This is the end result.
 Color the second image you stamped with E30 & RV10.
 Add some color where you will pop the mermaid and add some white dots on the fish.
 Color her hair with E08 & Y38. Nothing like a red head mermaid. :)
Highlight her scales, hair and the fish with a glitter pen. I love this one because it's so smooth and shows more than the Copic ones. I wish you could see the glittery accents on the final card but, I can..lol :)
Add scrap dots to the back of Mimi and place her on the fish bowl. When dry adhere to your card.
If you haven't tried "Scrap Dots" you won't be sorry. Next time you order you might want to give them a try. I need to order some more.
Thank you I am always grateful for your visit. Hugs, Kathy
