Spring Parade

Hip hip hooray, celebrate the day--Spring weather has finally arrived!  And about time too!
So to celebrate, I have created a parade on my card today with an April release called Happy Spring Chick by artist Jacquelynne Steves.
I printed my digi image at two different sizes to make it look like a mother hen and her chicks. I colored my images with Copics and framed it with cardstock. I used patterned papers from Marcella by K "Fiesta Birthday paper pack (including the circles used as embellishments). I also embellished with jeweled butterflies from Recollections and a paper-crafted butterfly from my leftover stash.
"Happy Spring Chick" is available in the QKD Shop, along with many other fabulous images and rubber stamps.  Good news: rubber stamps are also available already cling-mounted!

Lizzy Love

Here's one of my new favorites at the Queen Kat Store, this image is Lizzy Love number 21.  All of this artist's image are so wonderful!! I colored this girl up in bright yellows with a pink skirt. Do you love the flocked paisley paper?

Drop by the store and check out all the Lizzy Love images, so hard to pick a favorite, but I am definitely partial to number 7 and number 21.  Eek, so cute!

Cheers, Holley

I Think You are Lovely

What a perfect design for an any occasion pick-me-up card!  Lizzy is sporting her cute Uggs and her kitty top.  For this card I used Lizzy Lovely #16 from the store at Queen Kat Designs.  She was colored with Copic markers and Sakura Gel pens.  The simple card features a 5 1/2 inch by 4 1/4 inch white card blank, blue polka dot paper from Gina K Designs and embellishments from Freckled Fawn.  Each layer was inked with light blue chalk ink.

This card assembles quickly with dry adhesive and is a fun card for a good friend!
Have a wonderful day and I'll be back next Saturday with more for QKD!

Happy Spring!

Today my card showcases another new release, this time from artist  Jacquelynne Steves.  It's called Happy Spring Chick.  
I made a card using color blocking, as I don't make many that way and I need to stretch my crafting occasionally so I don't get stuck in a rut.  The patterned papers are a mix of leftover and my own hand-painted background using watercolors.
After decorating the top with various pieces of lace and trim, I added a few jewels and a nice sparkly button to denote the longer days and warmer Spring temps.  A tiny bouquet finishes off my card.
I colored my chick with Copics, then distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Faded Jeans distress ink. My chick looks so happy, waving her banner to announce that Spring is (finally) here!  I'm happy, too!
You can find Jacquelynne's Spring Chick at the QKD Shop.  For more inspiration, check out the Queen Kat Designs Facebook page.  And as always, happy crafting!

Life's Good

Here's an adorable new image that came out this month at the Queen Kat store. This image is called Planting Carrots Bunny Wabbit from artist Mary Ellen Smith.  I think this image would be adorable for Easter, as well as for those cute friends who love to garden, which is great for springtime.
I added some cute carrots on the right side from Jolees, as well as some large carrot brads.  The papers are a gorgeous shimmers mica cardstock from Paper Temptress.  I hope you love this fun image, Mary Ellen Smith has lots of cute rabbits and duck in her stamp line at the store!

Cheers, Holley
