Snow Penguin Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

http://kittybeedesigns.blogspot.com/

Hi everyone! :o)

Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Snow Penguin Card.


I used an adorable 'Snow Penguin' image. He is so cute and fun!! :o)

This was easy and quick created. I made a layout on my computer and printed it out on a white cardstock card base. 

My first idea was to create paper pieced image, but I liked a lot my DT mate's Gloria coloring on this card (and her card also), I decided to go with same coloring as she and to create one layer card. Thank you for the inspiration Gloria!! :o)

I watercolored the image with Distress Inks and just a bit water. I colored it simply, no shading. Lastly, I drew some dots and highlights with white pen and my card was finished. :o)

Dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")

List of supplies:


I hope you enjoyed my KBD spotlight card for this month and last for this year. Check out more cute images at the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy StoreKitty Bee Designs Blog and Kitty Bee Designs FB. :o)

Peace and Joy Circle Cards (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

My second post today... If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.


Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made these Peace and Joy Circle Cards.



To make these cards, I used GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles 'Christmas Blessings' stamp set.

First I made a card with stripped patterned paper. I liked it so much I made another one using tree bark (woodgrain impression) pattern paper. These papers are form Teresa Collins 'Something Wonderful' Paper Pad.


How I made my cards...

First I cut circles I needed. Here are the measurements:
  • card base: 3 7/8" x 2
  • circle panel: 3 3/4"

I heat embossed in white a sentiment on the patterned paper circle panel, splattered the panel with a white acrylic paint mixed with water and left it dry.

Then I heat embossed in white two poinsettias on a vellum paper, fussy cut them out and glued on the panel.

I glued two card base circles together to create a card base, glued the panel on the card base and embellished it with couple pearls. As a finishing touch I highlighted some splatters on the panel, drew couple more white dots and my 1st card was finished. :o)


Repeated everything for the 2nd card. :o)


Cards dimensions: d = 98 mm (3 7/8")

Reindeer Card (LMMS Inspiration)


Hi everyone! :o)


It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this one layer, Reindeer Card. :o)



To make this card I was inspired with GORGEOUS card created by Sue Hastead of  tanglemouse cards. Lovely scene, gorgeous colors and fantastic coloring. Love it!! :o) You can find Sue's card here. :o)

For my card I used an adorable LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Reindeer Greetings' digital stamp. There are more reindeer images from this collection in LMMS shop and you can find them all here. So cute! :o)

I made a layout on my computer and printed it out directly on a card base, for which I used Canson XL Mixed Media 300 g Paper. watercolored the image with Distress Inks. I colored it five days, each day a bit. No particular reason, I felt that way. :o) First day I colored a background, splattered it with water and Distress Ink. In next days I colored the rest of the image.
