Saturday Birthday Party

WOW I have LOADED this card with all kinds of stuff from all over the place!  LOL!!  I started out with my favorite paper company "Maja Designs" and used the gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics.  I'm going nuts waiting for the new collection to come out.  Hopefully by the time this posts, we will have seen something new!  I just love those butterfly dies from Noor Design.  So pretty!

This picture is to show the cute little chipboard wood fence from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  I colored the fence with some TH daubers first and then spray some kind of gold flecked mist over top.  (Sorry can't remember the name.)  The flower is from Prima but I've had for a long time so it was nice to finally use it.  LOL!  The gorgeous lace is from Live and Love Crafts

Isn't this heart sign just the cutest?  This is also from SRTC and I painted it with TH crackle paint.  The "Love" sentiment, the heart sign and fence all comes in one set.

Cute image huh?!!  It's called an SC image called "Saturday Birthday Party" from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.  I tried my hand at distress ink coloring again...kinda cute but I need a bit more practice. 

Well thanks so much for stopping by!  I've been taking a bit of a break but I will be back!!  Don't forget about my BLOG CANDY this month!  This is what I'm giving away:

The Stamping Chef

Hello friends!!

Today I'm just popping in to share a digi site that I've had the pleasure of being introduced to over the last week called "The Stamping Chef".  

She's got some sassy and very voluptuous images on her blog, which I freakin' LOVE but I also love the variety.  There's something for very one!  

Anyway, I thought I'd challenge myself to color up this one called "Demented Beauty".  I played with 3 other images for practice...well, I didn't complete all of them but just pieces.  I still can't just grab one image and have it be my masterpiece.  One day!!!

CUTE OR WHAT?!  You just have to check these sweeties out. 

Don't forget about my BLOG CANDY I'm giving away:

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Wee Florist

WELCOME to Kit and Clowder's monthly challenge and this month we are being sponsored by  Whimsy Stamps

The color BLUE is this month's challenge!

I chose to use an image called "Wee Florist" by Sylvia Zet, sold on the Whimsy Stamps online store.  Isn't she a cutie?  Some of my pieces I bought from Live and Love Crafts such as my Maja Design papers (Vintage Spring Basics), the Melissa Frances resin heart corner piece, my clock paper clip, the gorgeous lace and rose lace, the Wild Orchid Craft flowers and my "Cute" TH bulb.  

The leaves are chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company, a new online chipboard company in Canada.  With our dollar on the rise, it's nice to have the choice to stay local.  Woo hoo!!  I covered the leaves with Tim Holtz crackle paint.  Love how they turned out!! 

This doily border is also from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  This time I covered the chipboard with white TH distress paint and then some white frantage. 

Voila!  My colored image!  This is my "before" image I used to gauge how I do while taking Alyce's (Kit and Clowder) classes because some time down the road I will do an "after".  Should be interesting!!  Also, don't you just wish when you took a picture that it was as vibrant in the photo as in real life?  That annoys me!!  Maybe I need a different program....or a new house with my own photo booth!!  hee hee

SO!!  For this month of course there is a prize to be had and Whimsy Stamps is so kindly offering:


They have all kinds of cool stuff to spend your money on!  Papers, stamps, dies oh my!!  The great thing about the challenge is just because we are sponsored by Whimsy, doesn't mean you have to use an image to qualify, although they do have some cute digi's.  It can be any image so whatever you are creating this month, stop by and pop it onto Kit and Clowder!!  Don't forget to add you BLUE to it though!

This month I'm so thrilled to share with you
a free class to Kit and Clowder's

Class includes basic introduction to copic, the copic colour wheel, and how to use your markers

You will learn to color all 3 projects but you can find more details if you visit the Mini Project Classes page.  I have been taking some lessons myself and let me tell you, these classes are very detailed and Alyce gives you wonderful and helpful critique when you upload your colored images.  I highly recommend any of her classes to anyone.  

 Come and join her Facebook page and see all the amazing creations everyone has been making.  The group is for all levels of coloring and everyone is welcome.

If you'd like to, join the Kit and Clowder online coloring community where you can see live classes, challenges and support from other artist's of our craft.  Here you can upload and share your projects and get tons of wonderful inspiration.


There are none!  hee hee
