7 Swans a Swimming....

Something a little different today!!! 

I used the swan part of Maigan Lynn's new "The Mermaid and the Swan" image - printed it 7 times, fussy cut them out and then made them into this card! 

I wanted a bit of sparkle so I added some gold glitter glue and some mica flakes and ice flakes. 

A perfect card for this time of the year!

Hope everyone is getting prepared for Christmas! Of course I have done nothing - oh well!!

Back next week with another new creation!

Time for a Drinky Poo......

Hello everyone! I hope you have had a good week so far and are looking forward to the upcoming holidays. Have you got all your shopping done? I haven't even started EEK!!!
Well after doing my shopping I think I will need " A Drinky Poo" after tackling the crowds.

Today I am showcasing a fantabulous image by Charles Bristow called Lorelei's Martini. I love Charles's images they are so sexy and sassy and fun. 
I really got a kick out of working with this image it definitely was fun. I decided to go with a Christmas twist of this image. Lorelei looks like a candy cane. I used some Bo Bunny Mama Razzi II on this project.

Here is my take on this awesome image.


Look at her little smexy bum sitting on the olive. Tee Hee I really enjoyed this image. I don't know about you but I sure cold use a martini right now.

Thanks for stopping by today I hope you have a safe and Happy holiday.

Happy Holidays

Here's a gorgeous new image from Queen Kat Stamps. This stamp is called Dream a little Dream from artist Maigan Lynn.  I colored her up using copic markers and did her hat in red and white like a Christmas theme hat.  I added a Happy Holidays sentiment from Cosmo Cricket.  I think this stamp works perfect as a little holiday image.  I topped off this card with a couple of buttons and extra thick twine.

Drop by the Queen Kat Store and check out all of Maigan Lynn's wonderful images!

Cheers, Holley

Kraft & Black...

Sharing 2 cards with the new Maigan Lynn images I have to work with this month "The Mermaid & The Swan" and "Thumbelina". 

I couldn't resist using my favourite colour combo of Kraft & Black to make these cards. I added die cuts, braid and pearls/diamantis. I always love the look of cards when I use these 2 colours - the kraft & black always seems to work so well together! 

Hope you have been checking out the QKD Store regularly so you can keep up to date with new release images! 

I will be back next Thursday with some more creations to share!

I chose to make a birthday card with this image because lets face it what woman doesn't want to be queen at least for one day :)

Rocking the Christmas Bird by Mary Vogel Lozinak

Could this Christmas Bird be any sweeter?  This three inch tall rubber stamp is so cute and bound to bring a smile to anyones face!  For these two cards, I printed the Christmas Bird onto Kraft card stock and went from there.  I love the craft with the red, cream and brown color scheme for a traditional holiday color look.  He is showing his heart, too.  Wouldn't he be just perfect for that someone special?

For the second card, I used the same Kraft card stock print.  Mounted on greens, blues, creams and browns.  He looks equally cute for a winter sentiment card.  I can also think of lots of fall ideas for this bird, too!

Hope you enjoy seeing him.  I will be back next week with some other items featuring this outstanding stamp by Mary Vogel Lozinak.  Check out all of her stamps at the store.  Just follow the Christmas Bird link or the store link to the left!

A Sassy Xmas!

As promised in my poist 2 weeks ago - here is Charles Bristow's "Lorelei's Martini" image done up as a Xmas card!
 I coloured her in traditional xmas colours, made some little layered squares for the background, added some die cuts and some snow/ice flakes and there we go! I really must get some more of Charles' images - they are great to work with and have a bit of "attitude" LOL!!
Hope everyone is progressing with their Xmas preparations - as usual I have not done anything - it will all be done at the last minute!!
I will be back again next week with some more creations!
And if you need some new images you must visit the QKD Store and grab some festive designs to create with!

And remember we have a Facebook Page so why not share your QKD creations with us - we would love see them!

Christmas is Coming...

Have you started your cards and gifts yet?  I have, with some of the November releases from the Queen.  This beauty is called "Snow Crystal" and is designed by the talented artist Marianne English.  I colored her with Copics and then diecut the image with Spellbinders Nestabilities Radiant Rectangles die.

I used leftover papers from my stash to frame my image, as well as on my card base.  I kept the embellishments simple, using fiber, leftover adhesive pearl flourish and a pearl floral stick.  Easy peasy, but great presentation!

Do you have some crafty tricks up your sleeve that make your creative life easier?  Please share them with us, as we all need help in stretching our crafting time!!  I'll give you a hint right now:  QKD has some lovely Christmas images in both rubber and digital formats.  Go check them out at the SHOPPE.

And as always, crafters, have fun!!

 Happy December everyone!  are you getting ready for Christmas?  Need I say we are just 23 days away now.  I am making some winter theme cards.  This fun image comes from Kathy Cyr and is called Sledding.  So adorable. I decided to color her up in blue and make a blue card to match.
The card is meant to stand up on the desk and will fit perfectly in a 5.5 in envelope.  Can't you just imagine this pair out and about handing out Christmas cheer to everyone?
Hope you will check out all the Frances Mary and Cornelius images as well as some of the gorgeous lady stamps from Kathy Cyr at the Queen Kat store!
