Touch of Rebel!

Good morning!  Hope your week went well and best wishes for a great weekend!

This is going to be a quick post.

I made this card with an image named Devastatia from Kenny K downloads,
isn't she adorable. 

I coloured the image with my copics on white detail blending paper.  The floural  and solid red paper is from the Mariposa Stack DCVW, checked paper is from Stampin up and all backed with Bazzill Mud Pie brown paper.  I stained all the edges with walnut stain distress ink. 

I used black eyelets and black embroidery floss to minic her bodice.

Here is a look at the inside for sentiments.

I am entering this into Kenny K Challenge Blog #29 and used their sketch for my card.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and please come again.
Best wishes, Katheleen.

Snuggling up!

Hello, how has your weekend?  I hope you have had a wonderful weekend!  Today I would like to share with you a card I made with quilting in mind.

I couldn't resist using this cute magnolia baby to snuggle up on the quilt.  I have had it for some time now and this was the perfect marriage.  Baby was coloured with my copics and the wings are sprinkled with dazzing diamonds.  All the 1" squares are cut from Linen Closet Cardstock Stack and then sewn together.  The ovals are die cut using nesties and a magnolia doohickey for the tag. 
All have been edged with soft sky blue ink.

Here is a closer look at the centre.

I have used three different itty bitty buttons and embellished them with a small bow made from crochet cotton.  All the gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid and the ribbon is from my stash.

 I hope you enjoyed this visit and please come again.

Just for you!


I hope your week is going well!  It is hard to believe how quickly
January is flying by. 

Today I would like to share with you a "just for you" card. 
This card is made with this sweet image from the Magnolia 2010 Collection.  I have coloured her with copics.  All the paper is edged with walnut stain and her feet are highlighted with W1 copic marker. 

The circle is hand cut and the scalloped circle is a Sizzix scallop.  The embossing is done with Sizzix embossing folders, then the edges are sewn.  The sentiment label is from stampin up with a 1 inch circle for the wording.

The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. 
I am entering this in Creative Inspiration Challenge #94, Friday Sketchers Challenge #137, Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #65 and Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge R#2.

Thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you leave. 

Take care and best wishes.

Making Friends..... 

Hello and happy monday, hope your week is starting out well for you!
I am grateful that the new year is here and all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season is behind us.

I made this card today with this cute image from
Sugar Nellie Stamps entitled Braveheart. 
I stamped the image with black amuse ink onto one sheet wonder paper.

I coloured with my copic markers and edged everything with walnut stain. 
I layered white organdy ribbon over chocolate double faced satin ribbon.
Embellished with one button, brown pearls and a few jewels. 
The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the leaves are from MS branch punch.

I am entering this in the Creative Creations Challenge # 93 and
Friday Sketchers Challenge # 136.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by to visit.
Best wishes .... Katheleen.
