Simon Say's Stamp has the NEW Penny Black Stamps!!! YAY

Hello Friends, How are you today?? Feeling sad that summer is coming to a close?
I have some good news for you     ...yes it's true...
Simon Say's Stamp has all the new Penny Black Stamps in stock!!
First I will start you with the card I created for the Penny Black Blog today.

I love the fashion girls that Penny Black keeps inspiring us with. This particular girl is called "Simply Ornamental." Paper piecing is so easy, fun and bears little explanation. I added a little bit of Walnut Distress ink most of the papers on the card. Before I pieced the dress I applied a  layer of glitter and added a belt before adding the top layer of the pieced dress.

To create a loop on the ornament I taped half of a paper clip to the back of the & glued with glossy accents. The frame was created with this die. It's one of the spellbinders grand that fits into a regular die cutting machine.  You might notice the beautiful new script sentiment from SRM?

I was so busy this summer creating Christmas cards and I thought I would share all of new stamps that I used on the variety of cards that I designed with this collection of stamps.  I know that I am one lucky girl and I love all of these stamps. I can't wait to get busy and use more of the Christmas release. I think you will be pleased :)


Did you see how I enlarged this Happy Halloween House. Here it is in case you missed it. :)

As you might know already below is the supplies that I used for my card . Finally I can link you to the new stamps. I hope you have a happy day AND thanks for stopping. Hugs, Kathy

Donna Downey

Hello Friends, This weekend I was checking out Donna Downey's blog and was feeling inspired by her collages and colorful art work. I had a 10x10 canvas in my closet so I thought I would see what I could create.

I thought some chipboard lettering might be nice then I decided that my SRM stickers looked better. I liked leaving the dimension for the butterflies instead of chunky lettering. I used this one & this sticker.

I had previously colored these butterfies from Penny Black with Copics and I used white gel pen accents. I think the gems are Kaiser???

Happy 
The blue and green gelatos worked awesome on the background. I smeared them directly on the canvas in the corners and blended them with my fingers. Loved the depth of color. I stamped the letter background on the side with Chipped Sapphire?? Notice the doily's? I smeared gelatos into the holes and it looked so pretty but...wait

I didn't think that it would smear once I added the gel meduim :(
I guess that's what it's all about...discovery

I had these Tim Holtz's cutouts left over from these cards. I added more doily painting and stamped these butterflies with Walnut distress ink after I added a vintage page and the card scraps. I was doing something and some of the paint lifted off so I like that accident. I needed the canvas to blend and look more muted so I painted over the entire thing with blue studio paint and then more gel medium. (see supply list)

I would love to hear what you think. It was fun to do something different and use parts around my craft room to literally throw onto my canvas.
Happy
We are taking our son across country this week to move into his first apartment for his second year of college. So exciting! Basically summer is over but, I think we all are ready for more routine in a way.
I can't say it enough but, I am grateful that  you stop in...so thank you again... Hugs, Kathy
How about I leave you with a family photo from this summer??
I love taking pyramid photos because they are fun, you get a natural smile and my face always looks thinner..lol
