A Rosie Rabbit Gift...

Here the latest Copic Coloring Card Kit available at Heather's Hobbie Haven  A Rosie Rabbit Gift. I bought the cute My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas paper by accident  and thought this cute Stampavie image would be perfect with it. The paper is really fun and colorful. You can find the 6 x 6 paper pad in the store. I originally colored Rosie brown and then wanted her gray so the directions come with both color choices.

Here's a close up so you can get a better look. The package would look really cute paper pieced too! Thanks for stopping by..

Winter Fairy Alternate Coloring..

Hey everyone if you bought the Winter Fairy Water Coloring Card Kit.. I did an alternate coloring for you to try. The instructions that come with the kits are perfect if your just starting out or want to get done quick. The whole point when I made the kits up was to try and use as few colors as possible. I've used a bunch in this new coloring. Here's a picture of the whole card. I used the exact same lay out and papers, but doesn't it look different.. Oh I also used Liquid Applique on the fur parts this time. You can click over and see the original HERE.

Lets zoom in.. If you click on the picture it will enlarge..

If you'd like to try this way...
Here are the colors:

  • Shadow: Tumbled Glass
  • Skin: Tattered Rose & Vintage Photo (Mixed)
  • Cheeks: Aged Mahogany (Diluted, Mostly Water)
  • Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain ( Added in Layers)
  • Coat/Boots: Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain ( Shadow)
  • Gloves/Pants: Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood (Shadow)
  • Outer Wings: Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky (Shadow), Weathered Wood (Deep Shadow)
  • Inner Wings: Victorian Velvet, Fired Brick (Shadow), Bundled Sage (Dots & Small Accents)
  • Ear Muff: Victorian Velvet, Fired Brick (Shadow)
  • Leaves/Flowers on Coat: Bundled Sage, Forest Moss (Shadows)
  • Berries: Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick (I used both, not mixed)
  • Bird: Pumice Stone, Fired Brick (Accent)
  • Flowers in Hair: Bundled Sage, Fired Brick
If you have questions feel free to leave a comment.. Give it a try!! Tell me how it turned out..
If you haven't picked up one of these cute kits yet head over to Heather's Hobbie Haven and grab one. I had to order more of these cute Winter Fairy Stamps and make up more kits already, but when these are gone that's it.. Too many stamps, not enough time!!

Product Review...

Do you have one of these We R Memory Keepers Brad Setter & Paper Piercing Tools? This tool takes the pain out of putting brads on your projects. Simply use the piercing end to make a hole, insert the brad legs, spread and flatten. No more broken finger nails!! But you know what I use it for the most? Getting those darn  left over shapes out of dies. I don't know how many of the other paper piercing tools I have broken the tip off of. You know how it goes you poke the tip into the tiny little hole to remove the stuck piece and oh no the tip broke off and of course now it's to big to stick into the tiny little hole. The tip on the We R Memory Keepers tool is thick, but not to thick. I have yet to break one removing count less stuck die cut pieces and I remove a lot! 

This tool get's a high review from me. I'd buy one for my best friend any time!

Tree Trimming Kaylee

Are you ready for some Christmas cards? This is Tree Trimming Kaylee from Some Odd Girl. I love those big eyes. You can find this Copic Coloring Card Kit in the Previous Kits section. I'll be adding some more Christmas kits very soon.

This clear stamp set includes the main image, 2 accessory images and 3 sentiments (Trim the Tree, Merry & Bright, Deck the Halls). You could use a different sentiment on each of your cards. How about coloring her dress green or yellow or coloring the ornament red or green. You could make each of your three cards different. Just a thought.

Also I just received my order of Whimsy Sylvia Zet images.. These are super adorable.. I've got this one (Wee Suzi) colored and ready for me to make into a kit.. So keep a look out for those to be hitting Heather's Hobbie Haven.

Have you seen a certain stamp you'd like to see made into a kit? Let know and I'll check into it!
