Lots of Copic coloring and shading on this card. I added white dots with a gel pen and with enamel accents.  I have mentioned  before that I found a new kraft paper that I am in love with by Neenah.  The patterned paper is Basic Grey but, I don't have the name of the paper..sorry. Have a good week and I am grateful for your visit. Hugs, Kathy

winner and tutorial



Congrats to Merry for winning "Poppy" from Purple Onion Designs. If you missed this post you can read about it here.

Now...here is the photo tutorial for the card I posted here. Please note I have the white glitter on order ( I was borrowing it from Kate who I hear has an awesome store in Boston & a online shop too called ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. )

Before I begin all supplies are listed below. 
Peel off one side of the double sided sticky paper or tape called Sookwang and stick it on some white card stock
Trim the excess sticky parts off and turn over. Normally I am more careful not to waste but, I was in a rush when I created this. 
Now remove the other side of the Sookwang. Try not to get any finger prints on the sticky part.  
Add your glitter (for this tutorial I'm using green) and shake off the excess glitter. 
Take your finger and rub pressing your finger into the paper to burnish the glitter.  
Ink up your stamp with Archival ink if you are coloring the glitter.  If you are careful you can try StazOn. (you just have to stay way from the lines if using Copic markers)
I got a better impression when I stood up to stamp. 
You must use your heat gun to set the ink.  
Color with Copic markers or alcohol markers. When this glitter arrives I will show you more how to blend on the glitter. Basically you can use your blender pen to pull the color to shade on the glitter or just color without shading. This did not ruin the tips of my markers but, it's always good to test depending on the pressure you might put on your markers. If you have any questions please email me. I will be back tomorrow with another card. Have a happy day. Hugs, Kathy
I hope you will check out Absolutely Everything

Purple Onion Design's new release and a giveaway


Hello Friends, Did you have a good weekend? I feel refreshed & energized after spending the weekend crafting with beautiful ladies that am so fortunate to call my friends ...I feel so blessed. 
I learned a great technique this weekend from Sharon & Jennifer that I used on my card. Today I am happy so happy to be a Guest Designer at  Purple Onion Designs  & lucky to work with their new release. Purple Onion has a new artist,  Stacey Yacula's with a whimsical collection called "The Sweetest Day". The stamps will be available to purchase on Tuesday, April 17th. 
If you would like a chance to win "Poppy" (the sweet bunny) stamp please leave a comment. I will randomly draw a winner at midnight & post the winner on Tuesday.
It was difficult to get a good photograph but, if you saw this I think you would love the velvet texture the glitter gives you when you burnish it.  All you need to do is stick some double sided tape on some white card stock, burnish it with your finger, stamp on the glitter and color it with copic markers. I will give you links and supplies & explain the coloring on glitter further when I announce the winner. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by. Hugs, Kathy

P.S. Before I go have you heard of the new class called A Cut Above ? It starts today but, you can still sign up and the best part is the material is  always available after the class. I have taken several classes from "On Line Card Classes" and they are the best!

Smiles
 Hello Friends, How is your weekend going?? I have two more catalog cards to share with you with these sweet images from Penny Black. 
 Mimi is taking a relaxing bath for some down time. The "picture" on the wall was created with the help of this and the background stamped with this.
The "wallpaper" was designed with this lovely flower and then, I applied some dots with a gel pen.
Smiles
Lots of layers on the tub, candles and the rubber ducky. 
Enjoy Today
This sweet Mimi is checking something off of her bucket list. 
Enjoy Today
I can see so many occasions to use this fun hot air balloon for. Everything was colored with Copic markers  and the top card I used a Spellbinder die cut. Love how the Penny Black mix and match papers add lots of color to my cards.
Thanks for your visit it's so appreciated. Hugs, Kathy
