Autumn Critters Take 2

Can you believe it is October already.  Before you know it, it will be Christmas.  Let me tell you I really do love this image.  Bugaboo was the sponsor to two different Design Teams that I work with and I chose this image 2 times without realizing I chose it for the other.  That tells me that I really love the image.

The card I have to share with you today is an image from Bugaboo Stamps by the name of Autumn Critters.  Bugaboo just happens to be our sponsor over at Little Patch of Crafty Friends for Challenge #92.




I  colored the image up with various Copic Markers, added some glossy accents here and there and the my card was finished.



Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you will hop on over to  Little Patch of Crafty Friends and join in on our monthly challenge.  The theme as always is Anything Goes.

Be sure to visit our sponsor Bugaboo.  She has some really awesome images.



Until next time,
Kathy

Thank You Cards

Have I mentioned what an inspiration Nichol Spohr is to me when it comes to card creation.  She created very similar cards to these for the beginning of StampTEMBER 2018.  The only difference is the sentiments and the color combos on the flowers.

Below is a picture of the 2 cards that I created using the Beautiful Flowers 2 Stamp and Die set from Simon Says Stamp.




I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color the images after embossing them with SSS Fine Antique Gold embossing powder.  I created both backgrounds with the SSS Mod Stripe Stencil and Distress Oxides in Tattered Rose and Aged Maghony.

The "Thinking of You" sentiment came from the SSS Thoughtful Messages stamp set.


And the "Sending Thanks" came from the Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set.


I hope you have enjoyed these cards today and if you have never visited Nichol's blog before please do.  She is never a disapointment.

Until next time,
Kathy

Pumpkin Spice it Up

Hello and welcome to my blog today.  It is my turn to host over at Craft-Dee BowZ monthly Challenge.  For my hosting project, I created this A2 size card, using an image from the 2017 Simon Says Stamps and The Greeting Farm StampTEMBER colberation.  The theme for this card is all about fall, pumpkins and pumpkin spice.  I was truly inspired by Nichol Sphor when she created a card very similar to this one a year ago.


 Here is a close up of the image that I colored using my copic markers.


 And here is a close up of the bow, that I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool.





I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Bugaboo Stamps.  


She has some adorable images so please pay her a visit, I'm sure you will find something in her shop that you will enjoy.  Up next is Tracey.

Until next time,

Merry Christmas Snowmen

Can you believe it won't be long till we are having some snow. 

So I decided to create a card with a snow theme.  This card was created using an image from AMB Illustrations.  I love pictures of snowmen with their cute little carrot noses pointing towards the sky and this image was perfect.  You can find this image here.  AMB Illustrations just happens to be our sponsor over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #90.


I colored the image up with various Copic Markers, added some glitters for snow, then I created the background using some snowflake images that I stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you will hop on over to  Little Patch of Crafty Friends and join in on our monthly challenge.  The theme as always is Anything Goes.

Be sure to visit our sponsor AMB Illustrations.  They have some really awesome images.
