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


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!


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.

Wonky Coneflower

 kc~Tiddly Inks_TAC_Flower Friend

This fun wonky coneflower is from Tiddly Inks and was colored with Copic Markers then added to a blue panel on which I had stamped the sentiment from TAC. I added it to a pre-made card base I found while cleaning out of one of my many drawers in the craft room LOL!

Just Another Clucking Day!


This was last weeks d2d image and like I said the other day I didn’t even make the wire for getting it posted on my blog but I did post it at Crafters Digital Art Center. Now I am finally getting a chance to share it here. This ISN’T one of the sayings included it was just the kind of day I was having when I made it LOL! It did meet the Double Delight challenge too which was to pop it up.


I added a bit of lace that I had colored to match along the bottom using red line tape to hold it in place on each end then just pinching and pushing it onto the tape to “ruffle” it some.

Don’t forget if you missed out on the image you can still purchase it at the Designed 2 Delight store and play along at the beginning of each month to get the new freebie. Each week of that month that you play you get a new image too!

Bear Delivery x 2

 kc~Bear Delivery x 2

This cute image is from and I used it to make 2 small 3”x3” cards for tucking into presents for a shower or gift for a newborn.  I added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to the balloons and then did a little out of the box technique to make them stand out a bit more too!

Rain Drops Keep Falling on my…

pretty umbrella!  he he! Isn’t this a cute image from Cowgirl Up!  I think they look like they are having fun anyway!

 Picture 082

I used a wax paper resist (TJ) to make the awesome sky background. Added a bunch of small and mini Prima flowers off to the side and a flowery ribbon to set the scene off. I mean when it rains the flowers do come out right?

Frog on a Pot

  kc~PollyCraft_Frog on a Pot_Close Up

Isn’t this guy cute!  He is just hanging out in the garden 0n an upturned pot!  I love his expression and the cute flowers he has. I added a Queen & Co pearl to the center of each. I paired him with some Basic Grey Sugar Rush papers, a bit of Palette Orangerie ink and a cool bee button I found floating around in my  goodies bin.

P. S. I found a HUGE giveaway including 1000 sheets of paper!  Oh MY!  Check it out here.

Train is a coming

I found a couple stamped images of this train hanging out on my work table and decided to color them and use them on a mini (3”x3”) card. 


I like how it looks layered up with some Crystal Effects added to the bright shining lights too!  I think but am not 100% sure this is an SU image. I must of stamped it off at a friends or got it in an image swap along the way.

Audrey Bird Watching

 Picture 083

ok so I don’t really know if Audrey is watching the birds or not she seems to be glancing back towards us looking at her but I choose to call it that because inside this sweet little card I used the For the Birds image to make a bookmarker. I loved combining the 2 images so they could stand alone but yet they could be together too cause like I said you never know what she is really doing hanging out there on the porch :)

Picture 084

the bookmarker is connected to the card for now but easily can be torn off to use in your current read.  I think it is a fun alternative to the basic card I normally tend to make!

Wacky Wednesday – Tumbling Scarecrows

What a great set the Tumbling Scarecrows are!  The set features great poems, a fun scarecrow, tiny leaves and great pumpkins!

see what I mean…


I used the set to make this card:kc~FCD_WW8-4-10

I am not too keen on the fact that my glue to adhere the top layer showed through. Seemed no matter what I tried this AM that is what it did.  I guess it serves me right for waiting till the last minute to play {sigh} anywhoooo you get the idea it is a great set and many uses for some fabulous fall cards. 

TODAY ONLY it is on sale for 50% off in the Wacky Wednesday from FireCracker Designs by Pamela. So hurry over and get Tumbling Scarecrows for yourself before it is sold out!

Best Wishes

This image is another of the Designed 2 Delight weekly ones and it is called Vino, although it appears to me that someone drank all the Vino already!


There was a lot of discussion on the coloring of the bottle.  I have seen many colors for wine bottles but most tended to think they were greenish in color. I guess mine ended up a little blue-green.  The Double Delight Challenge was to emboss here and I did on the flower edges with some Ancient Gold Enchanted Gold EP from Ranger as well as the bottle with clear EP from Gary Burlin and on the label with some Mint Jelly EP from BMUSE.

kc~d2d_Vino-Close Up

I used my Spellbinders die in my Cuttlebug and then did a little Whisped Frames technique from TJ newsletter as well as the Fossil Stone Technique for the mat piece.

Soccer Peanut

 Picture 086

isn’t this a cute peanut guy from Bugaboo I think that he is an I happen to know a great soccer guy that I am probably going to use the card for!  I simple colored him, added a bit of Basic Grey Recess and Lime Rickey papers and some fun fibers I found floating around! SCORE!

Cheer Up

Picture 076

I was just playing around making some backgrounds and then ended up with a whole stack of them so in my effort to use them up here is one of the cards I came up with.  The sentiment is part of a set from FireCracker Designs by Pamela, the flowers are Primas that I just threaded scraps of ribbon through and the butterfly was a metal one I found in my little bin of goodies to which I dabbed alcohol inks on then a cool little gem I found stuck on my work area LOL!

Picture 080

The round green thing I have no clue where it came from but it too was hanging out on my work table and this all just kind of seemed to go together to make a fun cheery card. Yes? No?
