Time for a New Release!

Did you attend the new release party at Queen Kat Designs on Facebook?  I was one of the lucky commentators to score a free QKD digi of Lizzy Love #25 by artist Lizzy Love!  How cool is that?!
So this is what I did with my new digi.
I colored her with Copics. Her original look sports a shamrock headband, but I decided to place flower sequins on the shamrocks for a pure spring look.  Then I distressed the edges and framed her with cardstock before adding her to an embossed and sanded card face.
I embellished with sparkling buttons, circle borders and some jute.  My sentiment is from a K&Co sticker sheet. I finished off my card with white gel pen lines around the perimeter of the card and boxing around my sentiment.
I don't know about you but I am SO ready for Spring. After spending Spring break in Seattle, where Spring is blossoming in the greenest greens and the boldest colors, it was so difficult to return to the last remnants of mucky snow and brown brown grass in Chicago. Ugh!
So I'm daring Mother Nature to catch up with my crafting by washing her hands of winter and welcoming Spring in all its beauty! Come on, Mom, let's see some sunshine and blooms and greenery!!  Are you with me, crafters?!
We would certainly love to see some cards and projects using QKD stamps and digis.  Please share them with us on Facebook!!  You never know when another contest will pop up!  besides, you can get some very awesome inspiration there.
Like what you see?  Stop by the Shop and have fun!

Lizzy Love #16

 

Today I am showing a page from my art journal using the Lizzy Love #16  Stamp available at Queen Kat Designs.

For this page, I used white gesso on the background and using Italian Sunset Mist, Alaskan Salmon, and Blitzen mists all by Tattered Angels.  I stamped with chalk ink in pink grapefruit  and  key lime.  I added dots of acrylic paint using Jenni Bowlin paint in a yellow-orange shade.  I also colored the title and other circles using colored pencils.  Lizzy lovely was colored using Copic Markers and cut and placed on the page.  This one is all ready for my latest thoughts on connection.

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Bunny!

I love Sandra's designs - so cute & quirky!
 
Tag background is a mix of paint & inks & spritzes of water.
 
You can never have enough decorated tags - they always make great bookmarks!

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!
