Wind It Up

Good Morning, friends! Thanks for coming. I'm here today with a new release from Christina Lynn Myers. My stamp that I got to play with is called Wind It Up. For my card, I tried to focus on the girl and keep the background plain. I stamped her in Black India Ink and colored her with my prisma pencils and gamsol. Then I added crystal lacquer to her eyes, lips, heart and clock. Then I accented the gear on her stomach with my Sailor Silver Metallic Pen.
Join us tonight on the Facebook Fan page for a release party. The fun starts at 7pm PST and lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. There will be some giveaways and lots of fun.
Please hop over to Jeanie's blog for her creation. Thanks for coming.

It's almost Easter, right?

Ok so maybe not for a while... But I had to make this card!! I just had to. The stamp was calling to me. Her name is Carrot Bunnie. She's illustrated by Che Gilson over at Queen Kat Designs.
I used some hinges I've had forever! I mean... like.. oh.. maybe 5-6 years or so.. and some fun star brads to attach them to the card. This is one hefty card by the time I layered all the cardstock and added the metals.. I bet it weighs 1/2 a pound. lol
The hinges are actually functioning and the panel with the bunny open up. Under it I hand wrote "Happy Easter" and I still have the entire inside of the card to write to the person I send it to. I have someone in mind for this and I think her lil 12 year old heart will love it. :)

I used my Prisma pencils with gamsol to color the image and then touched up some parts with a Sailor metallic silver pen. It really adds some bling.

If you don't have any metallic pens, I suggest the Sailor brand. they come in a metal shaft with a shaker ball inside to really mix up the color. The tips are metal and once the paint is flowing it just glides on. I have both silver and gold.. well worth the money.

Ok... So that's my blog post for the day. Wow 2 days in a roll! I'm proud. :)

Take care and stay warm!

It's a Foxy Day!

Today we are welcoming Diana Vick to our stamp designer roster at Queen Kat Designs. You've probably seen some of her stamps already but today is a big release of her images! We are proud to have Diana with us. This is my card that I made with Phillea.. I chose to work with her because I LOVE hot air balloons. :) Isn't she the cutest thing? I had fun coloring her. I made this card and one other that can be seen in the QKD gallery. On this one I just had to color her "white" fur purple! She just screamed to be a punk, steampunk fox. :) I used some shimmery silver cardstock for the mat on the image and it just sparkles and shines. I had some mini pearls on a string left over from a Findings kit and strung them on the right side of the card. It's a simple card but really cute.

Thanks for coming to my blog. Please continue the hop over at Chris' blog.

Have a happy day!
