a shaped house card

Happy Birthday
Hello Friends, How's it goin'??
Have you heard the news? Penny Black is look for some guest designers and designers. All you need to do is upload your projects into the Penny Black Flickr group here.
I have a few other houses that I still have to post and the possibilities are endless with this stamp. Welcome home cards or congrats on a new home...etc.
This particular house was enlarged from one of Penny Black's new stamps.

This "witch" had a little makeover. I wanted to to look like a stylish lady without the proper funds. I refashioned her cape as a hat and gave her some longer legs. The sentiment on the bag was changed too. The large sentiment is from SRM stickers.
Have a great weekend! Hugs, Kathy
If you have any questions let me know sorry in a bit of a rush today :)

Hello Friends, Just a quick post that I just had to share...... I am so excited with these new stamps that Penny Black just released. Have you seen them??? I just heard that they are in stock...wah hooo!

Love the movement on these elves....yes there are TWO!!  This one was colored with Copic markers and  two background stamps were used on the ornament . I embossed this one called "Circles & Lines" with white embossing powder. After stamping I distressed the ornament. The round frame was created with Spellbinder's circles so I could float the elf.

 These are the NEW six stamps that were just released last week when I was away. The elves and the houses are from a new & very talented artist to Penny Black and her name is MO .... I mentioned her last week in this post. Here is her blog so you can see lots of her other beautiful digital images for sale.

christmas gift tags with a twist

Christmas tag with a twist #1
Hello Friends, How are you?? I missed you all.... I snuck away to Italy for a week to visit some vineyards on a wine tour sponsored by a local wine shop. My husband and I traveled with another couple that we adore ... it was the longest I have ever left my daughter and was happy to arrive home safely.  As you might image it was a great week full of wine and food.....we literally ate and drank our way through Italy & we lucked out with great weather.  Before I left I prepared some posts  and I really appreciate you stopping by.... it was fun to come home and read all of your comments. I found it hard not to have any access to internet or my cell phone!

This week Penny Black is giving you daily inspiration of all different kids of Christmas tags. Mine are on the Penny Black Blog today. I thought I would share some non traditional tags with vellum accents.
Christmas tag with a twist #2
I love using vellum as an overlay with some scored accents. After I punched the hole at the top I found these wonderful little reinforcers from Tim Holtz. So nice not to have to fuss with the regular white reinforcers.

This
is the flower die cut from Spellbinders. I attached the vellum with vellum tape and layered the flowers with scrap dots ( you must allow proper drying time though) . The tape only works well on lighter colors I found. Did you see that I am giving away a package of these flowers to a random winner?? This is the post with the details. 
Still have a little jet lag so off to bed for me. Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Kathy
