Winter is around the corner

Hello Friends, How was your weekend?? I saw my first bright orange & red leaf a few days ago but, I'm waiting for that crisp feel in the air. My hope is that fall lingers and the only snow I see this year is on cards :)

The theme this week at the Penny Black blog is snowmen.... so if it's still hot in your neck of the woods maybe this week on the PB blog you will cool off. Yesterday Jill created one of her wonderful PB& J videos and today you will find my card on the blog. I colored these sweet images with a combination of Copic markers & Le Plume markers on X-Press paper from Copic. The highlights on the snowman were added with some Tombow markers.

I love creating frames and it's super easy with Spellbinders. For this frame I used Wonky Rectangles.


The 'Sew Easy" piercing mat makes piercing must easier and I love the color and the squares to help guide me. You can't really see the dimension on the snowman's eyes and buttons. They really resemble "coal" when you use Enamel Accents. If you are wondering about the paper it's in the supply list below. This is starting to sound like an ad or something. Does it sound that way to you?? Let me know if I am giving to much info and or if you have any questions. Have a great week. Hugs, Kathy
P.S. Stay tuned for more cards and a project I created for PaperCrafts Inspirations.

Card Supplies:


Card number ONE

Hello Friends, How are you today?? I am so excited to share some news with you!!  Paper Crafts Inspirations is a Uk based magazine and they asked if I would like to be featured teaching a "Master Class" in their magazine this month on vellum. I created four cards and a project using vellum for different levels of crafters. I think it will be a seven page spread showing products and the cards etc. (It just hit the stands and I have yet to see) Today I am sharing card number one with you.

To celebrate my first publication in a magazine I have a huge giveaway with almost everything I used in my cards and projects for the publication. More on the giveaway below this card.

I love these deer from Penny Black's "Forest Friends" and in this card I gave the deer smiles for a different look. For this card I used some holly leaves to give the doe a soft feminine touch. I stamped snowflakes on the dark blue card stock with white ink and added some more white with a gel pen. To get that soft effect on my card base I sewed vellum on top of the blue.

The sentiment is from SRM stickers and the label is from Spellbinders called "Ribbon Tag Trio".
This window is from Tiffany Doodles and you can go to the  Paper Crafts Inspirations blog and download it for FREE plus you will find more of the tutorial on the Paper Crafts Blog.

Now for the fun part!!!!!!! I have to give a shout out and a big thanks to  Penny Black, Spellbinders, SRM stickers & Simon Says Stamp for donating all of this loot in this prize package!!
