Maya & Kitty Drinking Hot Tea...

How about another Maya image.
Maya & Kitty Drinking Hot Tea.

Aren't they adorable!
Just one more Maya to go.
I love that Frostyville Wreath, but it's a pain to cut out.
It kept getting stuck on the cutting mat.
Tip: Wax Paper 
I'll try and remember to do a quick how to video on that after I finish the Christmas card kits.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on the Christmas card kits.
I'm having fun doing them all up.

Thanks for stopping in.
Have a fabulous day!

Color Combo's - Red Violet...

I haven't done any Red Violet color combo's yet..
So that's what we have this week.
Plus I had a request for some pinks.

For this one I colored the whole shirt with the RV93 first and then added the
other two colors. It gave it a nice pinkish purple tone.
Actually I wasn't expecting it when I started the cap does not look purple in tone..

Next we have this cute bright color combo.
I can see me using this one a lot if I found the right paper.

If your coloring along with me you can grab this cute Krista Smith image HERE.
Krista had it as a freebie for Breast Cancer Awareness.
I erased the logo before printing so I wouldn't have to worry about coloring over it.
If you haven't started a swatch book yet it not to late.

Maya & Kitty Sledging...

This is one of three Maya card kits.
Maya & Kitty Sledging
Hopefully by the time this posts on today (I pre-posted it) the other two will be in the store.
Check the Just Added Section.
The other two are super cute too!

I'm really happy with how this one turned out.
It doesn't have traditional colors, but looks awesome.
If I do say so myself.
Although I didn't love cutting out all those doilies.
I love the doilies, but having to punch out all those little bits from the die is a pain.

The beautiful paper is Bo Bunny - Snow Day.

It turned out pretty awesome.
I love how it's got different size bits.
I watched a tutorial the other day on making your own different colors.
So now I'll have to try it.
I'll see how it works then do a tutorial for you guys.

Have a wonderful day!

Angel Gwen...

How about another Some Odd Girl Stamp..

I love how the not white dress turned out!
I think the banner would look really cool done in red with gold embossing.
I didn't do it that way for the kits because I don't have gold embossing powder in the store.
But there's no reason you can't when you get it home.
Just an idea.

Thanks for stopping in!
Have a wonderful day.
I'll see you tomorrow with another Christmas Card Kit.

Dancer & Wishes Card Kits...

How about a couple of fun and festive stamps to bring in a new year of kits.

January's monthly kits feature Some Odd Girl Stamps
Echo Parks - For the Record 2 - Documented Collection.

Let's start with the Copic Coloring Card Kit.

This stamp set comes with the main image, 2 accessory images and 2 sentiments.
Isn't she beautiful!
This kits also comes with a Gold Spica Glitter Pen.

Next we have the January Water Coloring Card Kit.

This stamp set comes with the main image, 1 accessory image and 2 sentiments.
I love how soft it looks.
This kits also comes with a Yellow Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.

Both stamp sets are clear acrylic.
So remember you have to clean them before you use them.
You can read my post HERE about cleaning clear stamps.
I always stamp it a few times on scratch paper to make sure it's stamping clear before stamping on my coloring piece.

I'll be shooting the water coloring video today.. 
I already did the copic video yesterday and getting those emailed out to purchasers 
either tonight or tomorrow.
Unless some emergency comes up.

Head over to the store and pick your kits up and color along with me.

Have a wonderful day!

Are you keeping up with all the Christmas card kit?
Hopefully you are getting the ones you want.
They are quickly heading out of the store.


This cutie is from Whimsy Stamps.
I finally got a chance to use the new Decorative Labels One Spellbinder's Die.
Isn't it pretty!
The beautiful paper is from last year.
Bo Bunny - Snowfall.

I actually ran out of  the light blue snowflake piece.
That's what I get for not counting the stamps first.
I had more then I usually have.
 I obviously liked her.
So the kits have 2 different pieces of paper.
But they both look super.
You'll just have one card that is different.

Have a great week.

Pixie Tilda & Snowy Roof....

Pixie Tilda & Snowy Roof

After coloring that roof 4 times I think it turned out pretty good.
I honestly say I won't be coloring it again for a while.
I used the new Bo Bunny - Snow Day Collection.
Isn't it pretty!

I add a few light clouds to the sky
and some Smooch Glitz the the snow.
I'm loving that stuff.

Thank for stopping in.
Have a fabulous day!

Have you ever colored something and just aren't happy with what you get?
Yep this happen's to me all the time.

I'm still working on Christmas card kits and I want to use this cute Pixie Tilda.

On this Snowy Roof.
Coloring number 1.
After I got done coloring this one I decided I didn't want her hanging off the bottom of the paper.
So it needed to be longer.

So comes coloring number 2.
I got this one all colored and decided I didn't like the warm grays I had colored under the yellows.
Note I also changed the color of the chimney
I thought the house need some lines for siding it looked to plain.
Houses are not the smooth.

Coloring 3 made it as far as being mounted onto a brown mat.
But once Pixie Tilda was displayed on the front I couldn't see her very well against the yellow.
You'd think I would have decided that with coloring number 2.
But no.
Oh and I hated how much Tumbled Glass distress ink I used in the sky.

Coloring 4....
I think we have a winner.
I like the lines I drew on for the siding.
I like that you can really see Pixie Tilda when she's attached to the front.
I like that she isn't hanging off into space
I'm happy with the color off the roof and chimney.
I haven't decide if I'll add some clouds to the sky yet or not...

So see your not the only one who has those days when coloring.
I have been working on this same card for three days.
Did I think about throwing the whole thing back into the coloring box
and forgetting about it?
But knew I had to get it done for Christmas card kits.
So I kept coming back and starting over.

Now to bling it up and actually make the card..
See you tomorrow for the finished card...

Have a great day!
