Hi There,

Here is my finished card from the Kit and Clowder April Markers Class.

Image is from: Mo’s Digital Pencil called “Sparkle”.

Here is a close-up.

On the inside I used this sentiment:

Also made this little kitten out of wool for my Secret Pal as she said she liked cats. Making 2 pom-poms and following the directions from “Klutz – Pom-Pom Kitties”. Thought it turned out to be adorable.

For the card background I used paper from Recollection Signature – Kaitlin. LOVE this paper. I then edged the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers. Along the top, I used punch from Creative Memories – Scallop Stitch. Then used the Sookwang tape and added Glitter Ritz – Ice Blue Micro Fine Glitter. Next I weaved some white ribbon through the base of the scallops.

Image was coloured in using a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.

Stamped the sentiments and added them to the card. Hope you like it!

Miss Kate Cuttables – Guest Designer


 

 

Surprise!  I’m a guest designer for Miss Kate Cuttables again this year! Miss Kate Cuttables offers awesome freebie designs everyday and I always look forward to them. I also love their designs and their new paper is great too! I just had to have it as it goes so well with their designs!

I LOVE Christmas and make over 55 cards every year to give to family and friends. I thought why not start early this year and so I made a Christmas themed card for my guest spot.

Using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space I uploaded Miss Kate Cuttables “boy-winter-deer-1016” (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/boy-winter-deer.php). I thought he was sooo cute! Added some Ranger Glossy Accents to his nose and eyes.  Wink of Stella – GL Green 040 was used on the ear muffs.

Here is a close-up of the little reindeer.

 

Also, uploaded one of my all time favourite trees from Miss Kate Cuttables – snowy-tree-10-07-15 (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/freebie-of-the-day-snowy-tree.php). I’ve used this tree on so many of my cards. Added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

The background paper is from Miss Kate Cuttables – “mkd-winter-woodland-paper-collection” – winter woodland reindeer.jpg (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/winter-woodland-paper-collection.php). Printed out the digital image on my HP Printer and then sized it to 6″ x 6″ and edge around the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint.

Behind the reindeer the paper is from American Crafts – Holiday collection – 6 x 6″ (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm). Used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut out the square and then edged around the sides of the small square with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers

The hills were made with Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper – 8.5″ x 11″ and Lawn Fawn – Lawn Cut dies.  Then used  Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass along the tops of the hills.

“Merry Christmas” ribbon is by Celebrate It!

Miss Kate Cuttables, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your guest design team again this year. It truly is a great honour and it made me so happy!
