Happy Halloween

 Witches Cape

I made this card for my best bud Anna :)  She loves Halloween and I liked the variation away from the typical orange and black!  I did include a little of both of those but it wasn’t the focus and I really like how it looks.  No idea who make the image (I actually think I stamped it from Anna’s stash on one of my visits!) But the October 31st is from Teresa Collins. How about that fun Basic Grey paper with the creepy crawlies on it – pretty cool! Did you notice too I cut out at the bottom of the cape to let it flow right into the black. and the sky was sponged on with charcoal grey ink.

Hope you all have a Happy Halloween! We’ll be seeing some family off I imagine and then we have our Sunday dart league today. I don’t live in a residential area so no trick or treating for us.

Copy of Louby Loo

I think the image is from Looby Lou and I colored with with my Marvy Wet Look Embossing Markers (Pastel).  Added some scraps of patterned papers I found (using my favorite layout again just a different shape like I had mentioned.  I added the clippo and a bit of ribbon to the top since I wasn’t using a sentiment and called it done :)

Happy Birthday Oval

Yes another birthday card and yes another birthday, actually we have  a LOT of birthday’s this time of year in my family so I usually am making them in abundance!  I am not sure what I am going to do this year since I seem to still have no desire to be crafting new things. :(

FireCracker Designs by Pamela image and colored with Copics and Gelly Roll pens, cut out and mounted up on foam tape above a scrap paper background. I added some of those awesome Queen & Co pearls to the sides too.

Happy birthday brother!

kc~Bugaboo_Turlte Birthday

Yep today is my brothers birthday!  I don’t know yet if this will be his card or not but seeing as I had a birthday card to share  and it was his day I picked it :)

This background is another of the Acrylic on Watercolor that I got from Marthy in my Swap-Bot swap.  I love the backgrounds she made and was thrilled she was my partner!

The image is from Bugaboo and colored with Copic Markers. Metallic Gelly Roll pens for the balloons to give them some sparkle as well as the hat and horn.  I used the Out of the Box from Technique Junkies and then added a green ring I found and some misc. stickers to spell “happy” as well as some faux dew drops to the ring.

Desert Scene

kc~ Gingerloft_Desert Scene

I just loved coloring this image from Gingerloft,  a beautiful sunset the warm desert and the shadows across the mountain!

I paired it with orange and black papers and matted it on a brown card base.  Simple really was mostly coloring and sponging color on straight from the ink pads.

Your How Old Dino?

How Old Dino

Pollycraft makes this fun digi image!  I colored the dino with shades of blue and added green grass under him.  I added some Mermaid Stickles to the balloon on his tail.  The background is an Acrylic on Water Color Paper and is another of the ones I received in the Swap-Bot swap I hosted for handmade backgrounds papers and it is an acrylic on watercolor by Marthy, I love the circles and colors she used!  The sentiment is from TAC called Another Year T-1030 and I used BMuse Mint Jelly EP to accentuate the word “how” on front.

Fall Flowers


Today is the final blog hop for the FCD gang. Pamela is closing the rubber end of her store. Hop along with us for one last time and see what Fall/Farewell things the team came up with.

Don't forget that this is a round robin type hop and wherever you start is where you end. There might be surprises along the way so be sure to leave a comment on every blog as you go. Plus we all like to hear what you have to say anyway :)


Fall Flowers

I colored this digital image, Buncha Daisies; from FireCracker Designs by Pamela with my copics blending the orange and yellows together and really like how they turned out.

kc~FCD_Flowers_CloseUp

I added some Basic Grey paper that has a woven pattern to it and layered with some dark chocolate brown, mounted everything onto a great orange-rust card base and then accented it with some golden yellow pearls from Queen & Co. I love the fall colors of this card!

To carry on with the hop your next stop is Hetty :)

Floral Trio

Floral Trio

This is the 3rd and final of the cards I made duplicates of.  The image is from Stamp It also called Antique Flower Trio.  I used some MM Travel paper for the mat and some Really Reasonable Ribbon in green. I again tore the image out and inked the edges with Palette Cognac.

Butterfly Swirl Thank You

This is another of the cards I made duplicates of.  As is the case with most of the cards I am sharing these images were ones I stamped off at a friends and did only 2 or 3 of them so figured it was finally time to do something with them :)

Butterfly Thank You

For this one I did one of my favorite things to add a little texture to the card – TEAR IT UP!  Simple, easy and adds some extra visual oomph!   The stamp is from Stamp It, I used sponges to dab Palette Inks on (Chartreuse, Haystack & Lavender) I also added some Shimmering Candlelight H2O’s to the butterfly wings. The sentiment is from TAC – Rose Sentiments T-302.

Butterfly Frame

Butterfly Frame

I made 2 of these butterfly framed cards, I am thinking of putting them with some others I made duplicates of and packaging them up as a gift. 

The image is from Stamp It and I used Copics to color it, Smooch Pearlized Top Coat to add some shimmer to the butterfly wings and then I cut the center out & around the outsides then used a nice crackle patterned paper as a background for it.

Butterfly Up and Over

Butterfly with Flower Trio

This background paper was one I got in a swap I had hosted on Swap-Bot it was made by Bonny. I like the mix of colors and it reminded me of floating along in a garden. I was attempting to do a Technique Junkies Up and Over but it really didn’t turn out that way BUT the butterfly, from Priscilla Style (Digi) is UP above the flowers and the stems, from Oopsa Daisy by FireCracker Designs by Pamela are OVER the edges so does that still count? LOL I used Gold EP from Inkadinkadoo on the flowers and the edges of the circle around the butterfly. There IS a little out of the “box” technique done too for the ends of the butterflies wings!

Birdhouse Oval

 

kc~BirdHouseOval_CloseUp

I can’t remember if I shared this with you all before or not and it is in the stack of to be shared cards so I am sharing now – sorry if it is a repeat!  Can you see the shimmer of the paper that is from Paper Temptress and it is the copic coloring paper (can’t recall the correct name right now sorry, thin and she specifically says it is good for coloring with them…in case you are looking)

Birdhouse Framed

I colored with the Copics then cut it out.  I layered onto some paper that I distressed the edges of and I added mini pearls along the upper right curve of the oval. This is one of my favorite layouts and it works for  most any shapes you want to use also.

Sorry it has been so long and I don’t find a sticky with the info on it I don’t know who the image is by although I do know it is a digital one.

Another Day at the Beach

kc~FCD_Beach Scene

Well I didn’t get too many days at the beach this year at all although I sure would of loved to!  This image is from FireCracker Designs by Pamela and I added some waves in the background and a shaving cream piece I found in my scraps stash made a perfect sky! The metal embellishment along the bottom says simply everything!  If only it were as easily done as it is said!

Did you know too that FireCracker Designs is closing it’s virtual doors on the red rubber portion of things?  Right now they are marked down to 50%!  Be sure to stop in and see what is still available and get it before it is too late.  Pamela is going to keep on with her digi’s but not sure at what pace.

Monkey Love

kc~Bugaboo_Monkey Love

Hi friends :)  I know I have been away for awhile, I haven’t been much in the crafting mood…lots going on in life, lots of changes some good some not so much.  I have finally today got around to cropping and marking some pictures of things I have done “way back when” and one or two that I finally got finished so thought I would pop in and schedule so posts to share with you all.

This image is from Bugaboo and I think he is adorable!  I made him for my dh for our Anniversary back in August. I used some Star Dust stickles, Copic Markers, Liquid Appliqué and  Sugar Rush paper from Basic Grey.

Help Please We need a new home!


Got your attention with the title there didn't I :)
The time has come to pair down and thin out my collection of items. I have added (and will be adding) photos to the Sale Album (click or use the link on right in the sidebar) Also in the sidebar is a listing of the Idea Books I have for sale. I prefer to ship in a Flat Rate Envelope/Box as it is cost controlled then :) However I am willing to ship in plain manila envelopes if I have the size big enough for your purchase and will then charge just actual shipping. Insurance/Delivery Confirmation is your choice BUT I am NOT responsible for a package once it has been delivered to the Post Office.

Prices are negotiable! I really need to get the items moved on to a new loving home :) If you have any questions about any products please email me (link on side bar) or leave a comment here :) I will remove the sold items as they are paid for so the list is kept current. There are plenty of stamps available (see photo's) such as SU, TAC, CTMH, Hero Arts, VIP, and Magenta.
Watch for more to come too I am sorting through my craft room!

Thank You

kc~Tiddly Inks_Oriental Girl TY

This adorable Thank You from Tiddly Inks is fun to color.  Her hair is just perfect for trying out various shading methods.  This time I used a brown on her hair and had light coming in from several area’s – maybe too much?  idk I liked it though so went ahead and turned her into a card!  I found the base made up in a stash with layer of leaves already on it so I simply matted and added the girl and the sentiment (from TAC) .

I did a little of the Wisped Frames technique from TJ too. Inside I added a white layer, wisped frames on it too and stamped “you’re so thoughtful” (from TAC)

Mini Card Drawer

 kc~Mini Card Drawer

I saw a tutorial {here} for an adorable box with cards inside.  It actually is like a little drawer and one could make it multiple layers and divide the drawers up by type of cards (ty, baby, wedding…) to make a great addition to anyone’s gift wrapping station! I started off with just one though cause I wanted to see how “easy” they were to assemble and how they looked.  I love it!  The cards inside need envies yet as I don’t have any that size (3” x 3”)and need to figure out a way to make some)

kc~Mini Card Drawer_Top

TO the top I added a matching die cut shape (Slice)to what I used on the cards and also a paper flower. So what do you think? If you try the tut yourself I would love to see your results too. The sentiments are from TAC Just Because set and I left the insides of the cards blank so that the gift giver can write in them.

Birthday Bear

 kc~d2d_BirthdayBear

Designed 2 Delight is where this cute bear is from.  It was one of the weekly freebies from Faith.  I used it on a card with some funky stripes and dots and then added the large chipboard balloon which I colored purple and covered with some Smooch to have it be all glittery fun!  The wire ribbon was added for some depth and I opted to go with a lady bear in pink LOL!

kc~d2d_BirthdayBear_CloseUp

I think it would be a fun card for a little girl’s birthday!

Wanna Drink?

kc~PollyCraft_Drink Monstor 

he he isn’t he scary! I don’t think you ought to be accepting that bubbling drink from him but then again it might be pretty delicious!

This image is from PollyCraft and is actually called Beer Monster but I don’t much care for beer so I colored over the shirt with metallic pen…had I been thinking I could of erased it prior to printing it since it was a digital image LOL but yeah like I said HAD I BEEN thinking :)  I also added some puff paint to the foam on the drink and I played with the eyes too!  I used a tube from PSP that I had with eyes and manipulated them to cover the other ones and add another dimension of fun to this image.
