My very first video & some candy to celebrate

Hello Friends, I am soooooo excited to share my very first video with you and I admit right out of the gate....there is room to grow so please be patent with me. The time investment was huge but, I enjoyed the process and learned a lot & I certainly look forward to growing more in this department.

In my new video series called " It's in the Details" I want to show you a very simple card that if you wish you can take your stamped image a step further by adding more details to your card.
Happy Holidays take 1
These cards are super easy with one layer.  I colored right onto the red rubber with my water color markers.   To take this simple technique a step further you can use a stamp positioner (or mark exactly where you stamped the first time) and use some VersaMark & embossing powder, then stamp ON TOP of your already water colored stamped image as you can see in the video. 
Happy Holidays take 2
Embossing on top of the stamped image a second time allows to you water color on top and the colors of the snowflakes won't change or dilute. I love the soft look of this Bo Bunny 6x6 paper pack for layering and I used this nice and heavy watercolor paper for my image. I used some distress ink on my second layer of Spellbinders for the center die cuts. The beautiful scalloped boarder is from this set and such a great value. 

In the video I rounded my corners and added some gems then, (after filming)  I decided I needed to die  cut two chapes to create more interest in the center of my card.....but, I FORGOT that you can't put gems through your machine so I snapped my cutting plates in two. I love the look of the crushed gems so I will try this a different way next  To secure the newly crushed gems I added Glossy Accents on top. I really hope you like the video and I hope to share a video once a week in my series "It's in the Details" I hope you will stay tuned. If you want to subscribe to my UTube channel click here. This card will be featured on the Penny Black blog today. I just love these delicate snowflakes on the wreath from PB. Thanks you for visiting I am so happy you stopped by. Hugs, Kathy

butterfly die cut from Spellbinders & a winner

Hello Friends!! How are you today?? Any time to get inky?? I finally had some time last night and it was wonderful. A special friend of mine is turning 50 and she's celebrating it in a very cool way. Virginia is linking up all of the cards that her friends design for her!! I think this is so much fun & hope you can check it out here. You might be able to tell what a big heart she has plus she's been a great friend to me!! I am blessed to call her a friend. There's so much more to say but, words are not my forte so HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet VIRGINIA :)

I truly enjoy working with these die cut butterflies from Spellbinders. I embossed this sentiment with clear powder on white paper. I layered up some scraps from a card I was working on for next week (and hopefully my first video) The butterfly has a layer of vellum and I used this paper from Bo Bunny for the layers and the butterfly. Ranger's Rock Candy was applied to the butterfly and while it was drying I created the flower with twine. I cut the butterfly in half then, glued it down under the flower with Glossy Accents. ( sometimes I do things backwards usually cause the idea comes in your head after something is already glued down. )  Here is another card I created with one of these butterflies.
I had to make ONE more while I was cleaning up.
Have you heard of Goosebumps? Finally I had time to play with it. To me it's like spray on Glossy Accents that has a texture to it. LOVE can sort of see it on the butterfly above. The edges were cut with more Spellbinders and the black sentiments are from SRM stickers.
I hope you find the joy of this season this weekend. Thanks so much for your visit. Hugs, Kathy

P.S. In this post I was giving away a Copic book and some white paint. I would like to wish a big congrats to  Neha Jain!!!  (I'll email you tomorrow)   Stay tuned I will have more giveaways soon. 


Quick Penny Black card

Hello Friends, I have a super quick share for you today. This card was created for my Uncle that recently retired from decades of work in the field of agriculture. He did work with cows so I thought this Penny Black image was perfect. 
This may go in the record book for the shortest post ever for me. I am in the process of trying to break some old habits,  prioritizing what's important and reflecting for the upcoming new year. 
Have a happy day! Hugs, Kathy
P.S. I cut this die for the "tag" with the SRM sentiment.
