I am still in the Christmas spirit and made another holiday card.  I didn't know I'd like this image so much.  This is the first time I've used this image and even though I'm not much for the style of this woman's hair, I grew to love her and she's more beautiful in real life.

Happy New Year and New Things.With Kat Scrappiness

When I visited Kat Scrappiness the first time, I couldn't do without buying something and also the 2nd time, etc.  I hope you enjoy everything as much as I do.

Now Kat Scrappiness is Die Cut Divas' first sponsor for the new year, 2020.  Visit the Die Cut Divas challenge blog to see what's happening there.  It's all about the New Things.

My first card for 2020 is a Congratulations card for a friend who is retiring and a very funny friend.  I think she'll get a kick out of this card.

I didn't know what I would do with this zig zag die shape at first, but just went with the flow and cut the card,  cut a scrap paper, then sponged Antique Linen onto the inside of the card using the scrap paper as a template.  Then I started playing around with some other dies in different colors.  For some reason, I kept putting this mandala die on, so that cemented the basic design.  I knew I had colored some Crazy Birds and found one that fit perfectly.  For such a simple card, it took me two whole weeks to come up with what I wanted.  It turned out very cute.

Kat Scrappiness Zig Zag Border dies (three separate dies in the package)

Die Cut Divas and TWO cards

Die Cut Divas challenge for December has two sponsors, Cheapo Dies and Morgan's Artworld with digital images at  Morgan's Artworld Digial Image Shop on Facebook.   Check out Die Cut Divas for the December challenge.

My first card is for Morgan's Artworld.  I can't help but use this digi in the winter months.  I'm just glad I don't have to bundle up so much.


Supplies:
Morgan's Artworld Winter 10
Elizabeth Craft Designs Rectangle Stitched dies
Copic markers
Silver glitter tape

My second card for the month is for Cheapo Dies.

This post shows what stamps, embossing folders and dies do for a card.  I matched up the colors on the "happy" die with those on the poinsettia.  Lots of time spent in coloring with four colors on the flower, each brushed on twice.


This is an Elizabeth Craft Designs poinsettia, but Cheapo has a poinsettia here that is similar as well as having many Elizabeth Craft Designs dies in the store.

Supplies:
Elizabeth Craft Designs Poinsettia clear stamps and matching dies
Elizabeth Craft Designs happy holidays 
Embossing folder - don't even remember buying it, but doesn't have the manufacturer name on the folder.
Copic markers R81, R83, R85 & RV09; YG61, YG63, YG67 & YG45

Bugaboo and Turkey?

Last day of the November challenge at Die Cut Divas and good luck to you.

I am in the mood for Autumn and turkey.  I found a bag of  silk Autumn leaves in my garage and had to scatter them with my card to take a picture.  See that strip of gold glitter tape on the left side - I had to cover a mistake.  I ran a 1/2 inch wide double sided tape up that side and then realized it wasn't the back side of the die-cut, but the front.  I grabbed the gold glitter tape and ran it on top of the double-sided tape.

You can save almost anything.  I hope you like this little gal because I think they are so much fun.

Tags are the Rage

I'm joining in on the 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019


All the details and the link up can be found HERE.

I started with stamping the plaid stamp on a diagonal and embossing it in white.  I have not finished all the tags, but I have a start.   I finished the tags before my cataract surgery, but didn't have enough time to post them.  More to come.  LOL

Completed tags below and I'm sure I'll use the other tags before Christmas.


I was inspired by Jane Taylor on this day.  I hadn't used my HA Bold Prints and thought I could use that for my plaid.  I colored two of them in with Copic marker R39 and will do the same on the larger mouse tag.
