Ellie's Birthday Card Kit...

Happy Birthday To Me..
Yep I'm a Halloween baby.
That explains a lot doesn't it!

This cutie is by Saturated Canary and is called Ellie's Birthday.

Isn't she adorable!
The beautiful paper is from the New Echo Park - For The Record 2 - Tailored Collection.
Aren't the colors fun and bright.
I'll have to try out the Document Collection next.
I have colored her with Copic Markers.

I used some Smooch Glitz on the balloons.
It works great.

To celebrate my birthday and this birthday kit I made up just for today.
I made a tutorial.

Thanks for watching.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween.

Christmas Choir Boy...

Today's Christmas card kit features a Chrissy Armstrong image.
Christmas Choir Boy

We haven't used one of her images yet.
Totally cute!
I used the new Whimsy Stamps Ornaments Border Die.
I really like it.
Although I left all the little snowflakes in. 
You are going to have to poke them out yourselves.
I also cut it into two pieces and added some pop dots under some parts.

Love his singing friends
how his robe turned out.
Next on the Christmas Card Kits list we will have Christmas Choir Girl.

But to just buy one for me... Gives me a thrill!
I know crazy...

I stamped out half a dozen and cut out all the parts for the card.
This will be my toss in treat for a few customers this week.

Dancing with Stars Tilda...

I'm still working on Christmas cards.
Isn't she adorable.
I have colored her with Copic Markers.
I dug around in my die draw and found that tree by Tim Holtz.
Thought it added a little something different.
Maybe add some snow on the edges?
The paper is Simple Stories Homemade Holiday.
I really love this paper.

I've added her to my pile of Christmas cards I'm planning on sending.
I'm sure someone will enjoy her.

Hazel Card Kit...

So better late then never right?
I finally managed to make the Hazel video Trish asked for.
I was in a hurry when I shot it yesterday morning so I didn't read the directions before I started.
So I forgot a couple colors.
Like the Broom Handle is E31 & E30
the Broom was actually E31, Y21, Y11 & Y0000
the Bats Ears, Belly & Nose had R00 to lighten them before I used the W2.
I put notes in when I edited.
Sorry about that I had to go to a job interview in the afternoon but wanted to get this done for you guys when the light was good.
The lesson in this is always read the DIRECTIONS first..

So on to the video..

Thanks for watching!
Have a great day..

December Monthly Kits - Tilda with a Cute Lamb & Christmas Tilda with Cat

It's time to start working on those Christmas cards if you haven't already.
December's Monthly Kits feature Magnolia Stamps 
Simple Stories Homemade Holiday Paper Collection.

I have used the same Spellbinder's Circle for both kits so you can mix and match them.
The paper is double sided so you can turn it around.
There are lots of possibilities for making these your own or making them all the same. 

Lets start with the December Water Coloring Card Kit.

The beautiful snowflakes are a new Whimsy Stamps die Layered Snowflakes 
I love it!

Isn't she beautiful!
I have also colored her up with Copic Markers for those of you who like to switch paper.
I'll share that later this week as out Just For Fun card.

Next we have the December Copic Coloring Card Kit.

I'm a dog lover myself, but think that cat is totally adorable.

Both kits come with a package of pearls that you can add to your cards.
I have also added some Liquid Pearls randomly around both girls 
some Stickles Star Dust to the lace on there dresses.

I have a few of these packaged and ready to go.
When those are gone I'll have to reorder.
Head over to the store and grab your's before they go to Pre-Order.

I'll be working on the video's for both of these this week and get the links mailed out to purchasers.

I've managed to color up three more Christmas images this week.
Now to make them into card kits and get them in the store.
Then to start on the rest.
I'll be doing up all the Christmas images first so we can all get those out of the way.
Then I'll get back to the Sweet November Card Series.
I haven't forgotten.

Thanks for stopping by.
