Hello Friends, Today I am wishing you a happy day. How are things going for you?? Me...taking a little break tonight to assemble this card. Lots of fun new products on this card from Penny Black, Simon Say's Stamp and Spellbinders. Just click on the photos in the supply list if you are curious.

I have been organizing my paper and found this pretty check.

I wanted to share how I cut the pumpkins apart and created my background. In this post I show you how I inked the background with distress ink.

To maximize the sentiment banner I added some pop dots. Have a happy day. Hugs, Kathy
P.S. I promise to announce the winners soon and thanks for your patience. PLUS more giveaways soon.



giveaway for World Card Making Day

Hello Friends, Welcome to World Card Making Day! Do you remember that two weeks ago I got my dates mixed up and made this card to celebrate? I really wanted to make a themed card like I did with this one for 2010 but, with the upcoming move that didn't happen.
I thought I would share the cards in the final phase then I decided to add more stuff!! (sorry for the bad photo) In this post you will see the new and improved card on the left AND IF YOU LEAVE A COMMENT YOU CAN WIN SSS OCTOBER'S CARD KIT...DETAILS HERE
Would you have left the cards more clean & simple?? I just couldn't bring myself to leave them as is. Would  love to hear your opinion. 
This embossing folder from Spellbinders is reversible and their embossing folders give you such a nice and deep impression unlike many other companies. Is it bad to want every embossing folder that Spellbinders has?  
I wanted to point out the leaves in this photo... I added glossy accents to only parts of the's a neat look and another way to get more dimension.

In this photo I want to share that I added white dots in the flowers centers and proceeded to add a blop of glossly accents on top. The flowers were colored with Copic markers and I added some white gel pen accents on the petals.
Thanks for taking the time to stop my blog and celebrate with me for World Card Making Day. Leave me a comment to win this beautiful stamp from Penny Black. 
I will randomly select a winner next weekend. I hope you will consider to join my "following" or "register" if you don't already. Thanks again and have a happy weekend. Hugs, Kathy

P.S. Be sure to stop by Penny Black for lots of prizes and contests today that I think you won't want to miss :)



giveaway SSS october card kit

Hello Friends, How have you been??? Goodness...sorry it's been so long since my last post.  I think it's safe to say that by Halloween we will be in our new digs!! That overwhelming and exciting feeling is sinking in a big way :) 
This is Simon Say's Stamp October Card Kit and I am THRILLED TO SAY THAT
I HAVE ONE OF SSS OCTOBERS CARD KIT TO GIVE AWAY! thank YOU Heidi :) Just say "HI"to me in the comment area and I'll pick a winner next weekend. 
Each  month I delight in seeing what surprises await me in my Card Kit boxes. This month I was so excited to see another stamp set with this beautiful flower! (Kristina does an amazing job creating beautiful stamps for Simon) ! This large chipboard sentiment is worth every penny. I added black enamel accents to mine. Take note of this beautiful chipboard coaster that I cut in half to get make another card with will see the other half in my next post. 
I had to show you the glossy enamel accents in all it's glory (that I covered the "Always" with). Did you notice how I used my white gel pen to make lines adding a detail to the petals?? Each seed in the middle of the flowers has a blob of glossy accents on it. 
The fun center of the flower I cut a few times cutting each a slightly different way to give me a variety of sizes to use as embellishments. I should mention that the stamped sentiment "& Forever" I used this die from Spellbinders to get the wonderful shape and lightly distressed it so the shape would stand out.
Thanks so so much for your visit and I hope you are good. Hugs, Kathy
