Imagine Bookmark

I've been slowly but surely getting myself back on track with my postings.  And today I have a really fun bookmark created for World Book Day, which is on March 7.  I love to curl up with a good book, whether it be a real paper and ink book or the digital version (although I'm partial to the paper and ink kind myself).  Plus, you can't use this awesome bookmark with a digital book. :)

I used so many fun products on this tag.  Starting with the background, which was misted with Dylusions inks.  Then I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil with Art Anthology Sorbets to create a fun textured design.  Once that was dry, I layered on a bit of punchinella, a stick pin, and a Basically Bare felt cloud, which was covered with Stickles and a bit of ink from a Zig Art and Graphic Twin marker in Cornflour blue.

Then I used a Zig Emboss Writer on the chipboard letters then heat embossed them with WOW embossing powders.  LOVE the vibrant yellow!

The sun is a stamp from Queen Kat Designs, which was colored with Zig Brushables in Pure Yellow, Zig Art and Graphic Twin in TUT-80, Zig Wink of Stella in GL. Clear, and lastly a Zig Photo Signature pen in Red.

Party Animal

Jamie here with you again on a wonderful Friday.  Today I have a fun card to share that uses a new stamp called Dobs by stamp designer Che Gilson from Queen Kat Designs. This was such a fun stamp to work with.  I knew immediately what I was going to make.

I started by coloring the image with my Prismacolor pencils (as usual).  Then I started on the card background.  I layered my papers, added a bit of burlap ribbon, a chipboard arrow, and the sentiment.  Quick and simple, my favorite type of card. :)

And it is with a sad heart that I have to say this will be my last post as part of the Design Team for Queen Kat Designs.  I have enjoyed my time with the company and with the gals on the team, but family life and personal issues have taken over any spare time I've had.  I will truly miss working with the company.

You Are Beautiful

Welcome back to another fun Friday!  Today I've made a tag using the Celtic Fairy stamp by stamp designer Kristie Silva from Queen Kat Designs.  I simply love her facial expression.  So let's see how this tag was made.

First, I misted the background using several different colors of Dylusions inks.  Then, using a stencil and gold dimensional paint, I created the raised portion.  Then I simply layered on the punchinella, baker's twine, butterfly, and the sentiment.

The image itself was colored with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut.  Then I simply adhered it to the tag itself.

Today I have a stamp called Yeti by stamp designer Kristie Silva from Queen Kat Designs.  Is he not the cutest thing you've ever seen?  And hugging his little toy made it the perfect stamp for a Valentine's Day card.

I started by coloring the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  Next I inked the edges of the cardstock.  The card background was made by layering different patterned papers, adding a bit of baker's twine, a few black buttons, and a felt key.

It all comes together to make one super cute card perfect for that loved one.

Heart Plate

I'm gearing up for a fun Valentine's Day, and today I have a fun project with just that theme in mind.  Oh, and did I mention quick and easy too?  

Let's start with our supplies.  I used  red, pink, and black Zig Painty FX markers and a red Zig Photo Signature pen.  The plate is a plastic plate I found at my local dollar store.  You never know what little gems you'll find there, plus they only cost $1, so you can't beat the price. :)

So I mentioned this was a quick and easy project.  All I did was alternate drawing hearts with the red and pink paint pens.  Once the paint was dry (which only takes a few seconds), I added highlights with the black paint pen and the photo pen.

The end results yield an adorable plate for Valentine's Day.  To protect the paint, I would recommend giving the plate a quick spray with an acrylic sealant.  Also, neither the paint nor the acrylic sealant are food safe, so any food placed on the plate needs to be in a wrapper or placed on top of a napkin and not directly on the plate itself.

Thanks for stopping in today!

Jamie here with you on this wonderful Friday morning.  Can you believe we're already into the second month of the year?  So today I have a fun stamp from Queen Kat Designs to share, Moon Girl by stamp designer Laura Macy.

This is such an adorable image!  I had the image colored and the card made in about 30 minutes.  I love it when a stamped image "speaks" to me.  :) But it really does make the creative process so much easier when it happens that way.

The image was fully colored with Prismacolor pencils, then simply mounted on cardstock and layered on the card.  A simple acrylic star was added to completed the card.  Quick and simple, and totally adorable!

Thanks for stopping in today!
