Help 4 Katie

Today I am going to share a card I made using a digi stamp that was purchased in a fundraiser. Please check out the Help 4 Katie blog by clicking HERE.  Please take a look and consider giving to this cause to help out a fellow crafter.

I made this card as a "Thank You".  I creating a couple of cards using the same image.

I used a Martha Stewart Aound the Corner punch, Spellbinder die punch and I used my Copic marker to change the color of a red ribbon to match my paper perfectly. 

Have a wonderful day!

Late Valentine Post

Ok.  So I know... It's really late.  I just didn't get a chance to get these out here before now but I wanted to share. Below are the valentines I made for my family this year.

This first valentine was made for each of my grown children.  I made the "love" and the heart shaped  cut out with my Cricut.  The word "love" was cut out in red cardstock and then covered with clear embossing powder. I did the embossing technique three times to make the clear coat really thick.  I also put a coat of white glitter on the hear cut out.  I then embellished with a ribbon and some cute heart stick pins.  I also had a cute rubber stamp that said the word love and I stamped it on the red card stock with Versamark to give a watermark effect.

I gave this card to each of my kids along with some cupcakes which I put into some cute boxes I got at Michaels and tied with a bow.

I also made these little valenines for my grandkids.
This dragon is a digi stamp from Dustin Pike.  His website is HERE.  This little guy was for my grandson so I didn't want to use the pinks and purples.  I colored the image with my Copics.  I used Diamond Glaze on the heart and I used my Viva Decor pens to create the orange buttons in the corners.

This is another adorable Dustin Pike image I used to make a card for my new granddaughter Aspen.

  The last two cards below were made with digital images by Pnk Cat Studio.  You can find their website by clicking HERE 

Have a wonderful Day!

Thank you

I hope everyone is getting around in the snow alright.  I love snow.  I will admit that this year it has been a little challenging.  I had surgery and then it started snowing and just hasn't stopped!  Two days after my surgery my fridge went on the fritz.  Took 3 days before a repairman could get up my driver to fix it and where I live we certainly don't get delivery!  Thank heavens for people who brought us food. This last storm my kitchen sink got clogged.  It took two days before the plumber could get up my drive. That meant 2 days with no kitchen sink. Good times let me tell ya.  I know I could have worse problems but I could use a short break from all the troubles.

Enough complaining already!  I have been so blessed with friends and family helping out while I am out of commission.  I have been trying hard to get some thank you cards made.  Below are two cards I created using the same stamp by Elisabeth Bell.  She is one my favorites!  This stamp is called New Friends.  The first one I created using browns and greens.

I created the flower using a brown piece of binding tape which I stuck together just using glue dots to form the rose and then I cut two pieces of green ribbon in the shape of leaves. 

The next card was done using blues.

I used a glaze pen on both of these images for her barrett to give it some shine and dimension.

Here are some pics of my snow grandbabies. 

I hope every one has a warm and cozy day!
