Thank You
Hello Friends, Happy Friday to you! Thank you for all of your sweet and gracious comments about my very first video ...so very encouraging & heart warming. (I will be selecting a winner this weekend and will try to post it on Sunday...all that info is here) Right now I am working on my second video and I will be using the NEW Copic like markers from Le Plume by Marvy that are almost half the price of Copic's . Here is a post that I did on the LePlume's in Sept & if you are wondering where you can purchase them just click here. In the mean time I hope you will check out Lai-Yoke's tree's here that she created after she saw my video. If you get inspired by anything I do please send me a link I would love to see what you you have created.

Creating this card is pretty straight foward but, if you need more info here is a post I did on Zentangle. Sorry for all of the click here and here stuff. Just in a crunch today. I have 22 people coming over Monday night for a Book Club Christmas Party with spouses and I have NOT started decorating and the house is a reck...crazy! Have a great weekend and would love to hear what you are up to. Hugs, Kathy

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 time...lol.  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
