Holiday Hugs...

Have you seen this cute new Penny Black stamp? It's called Holiday Hugs. This is one of my new Seasonal Kits available over at Heather's Hobbie Haven. This one is colored with Ranger Distress Inks, but I colored it in Copic's too.

The coloring makes them both look different. I love that about different color mediums. Maybe I should break out my Prisma pencils and give them a go. Well not today. I've got to go do my How To video for tomorrow post.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Kate Krafty A Ragamuffin..

I was watching a video tutorial over at Color Me Copic. This one featured Blonde hair. (YR20, YR21, YR23 & E33) Since I'm a blonde I love that color and always want to find new color ideas. I also have been wanting to added to Heather's Favorite's over at Heather's Hobbie Haven. I need to work on that some more. I have lots of favorite color combo's I just need to get them down. This image has the perfect hair for show casing colors.

I'm also going to enter in the Saturated Canary Challenge. The challenge is "FALL Colors". I already entered a card, but since this one matches and I didn't even plan it that way. Why not. Maybe I'll be the lucky winner and can pick up another cute Krista Smith image! LOVE those..

Thanks for stopping by I hope your having a fabulous day!

Ragged Angel...

One for me. I colored up a couple of images while watching TV a few days ago. This cutie is by Mo Manning. Isn't she adorable(Ragged Angel)? I love her whole outfit, very old fashion looking. there's another one where the girl is holding a bird (Urchin with Bird). I think I'll color her next. The paper is from the scrap pile. Just dug around until I found some that went together. Even the flowers, heart and border came from there.

I used Paula's trick for adding glitter. I had to hunt all over her blog Paper Possibilities to find it. I finally found it in the November posts. I knew it was a while ago. I keep looking at that bottle of Glamour Dust thinking why did I buy that? Now I know. It's very glittery!!

Copics Used:

  • Shadow: W0
  • Skin: E21, E00, E000

A Rosie Rabbit Gift...

Check out this fabulously fun paper by My Minds Eye - 12 Days of Christmas. I wasn't crazy about it at first, but I love how festive it looks with Rosie. I think the Martha Stewart Present Border punch gives it a little extra something. I have all these punches I never use. Shame on me! Rosie started out brown and I just wasn't thrilled with her so started over and made her gray. Much better. The brown was cute, just not what I wanted.

I'm off to water color. Thanks for stopping by. I hope your having a fabulous day!

Something for You Card Kit...

Oh my I love this new Magnolias collection Sweet Christmas Dreams. This cute image is called Something For You. Isn't she adorable? There are three different Magnolia DooHickey dies too. Paris Nights, Spruce and Swirly Lace. They all look so pretty. I don't have these in the store yet, but I can be persuaded if three of you want one.

I have again used the Fancy Pants Saint Nick Collection for the paper. you can click on the picture for a closer view. Have you tried those new EK Success Slim Layering Punches? I just got in the Butterfly, Ornaments & Fall Leaf ones. I tried them out they are pretty awesome! I like how the Ornaments & Fall Leaf connect together. I even went over and grab the EK Success video to add to the page if you want to watch it.

Thanks for stopping by I hope your having a great day!
