Stitch 4You

Hello Everyone!

I am here to share a Sugar Nellie Challenge DT card.
Our theme is always Anything Goes as long as you use a
current or retired Sugar Nellie image.

I made a patchwork card using a folksy stamp by Leanne Ellis.
Sugar Nellie Funky Kits store carries a wide range of
Leanne Ellis stamps, you can find them here.


This stamp image is called "Stitch" by Leanne Ellis.


I stamped the image on 140lb Strathmore Mixed Media paper with
Staz-on Timber Brown ink. I then water colored her with Distress Ink pads.

I have been experimenting water coloring on mixed media paper lately.
Although they are not as absorbent as watercolor paper, I found
they are good for water coloring stamp images,
.
I like the Canson 98lb Mixed Media paper better as you can
easily print digi stamps and the paper is more durable
 than the lighter weight watercolor paper.

Dies ~ Go Kreate, Magnolia and Marianne Design.
Twine, lace and measuring tape ribbon are from The Ribbon Girl.

I hope my creation inspires you to play with us at Sugar Nellie Challenge.
and visit Funky Kits for many adorable stamps.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!

Hugs,
Katie

For the Graduate

Hello Everyone!
Hope you are keeping well wherever you are.
Popping in to share a card I made for my son who just graduated from high school.
I bought this Magnolia stamp years ago for this special occasion.
Finally I got to stamp it and color up this sweet
Graduation Edwin or Eric!


I inked up the stamp with Staz-on Timber Brown ink and
water colored the image with Distress Ink pads.
I embossed around the image with white Frantage for added texture.


I used Eric's favorite color blue for the color theme and added some red and
amber as accents. I stenciled the background paper edges using white embossing paste
and a 6x6 The Story stencil  from The Crafter's Workshop.

Designer paper~ Maja Design Life in the Country and Life by the Sea collection
Dies ~ Go Kreate, La La Land Crafts, Marianne Design and Tim Holtz Sizzix


I am proud of Eric's achievement.
He has maintained a good grade and obtained a District Scholarship 
towards his university tuition from Ministry of Education.
Well done my child!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Wish you a lovely day!

Hugs,
Katie

Sitting Pretty on Mushroom ~ GDT for Conie Fong Art & Design

Morning Friends!
Hope you are doing well wherever you are.

Today, I have a new guest design work to share with you.
I was invited by the lovely Conie Fong, creator of Conie Fong Art & Design,
to do a couple of guest design work for her Facebook Group.


The image I used is called Sitting Pretty on Mushroom.
You can find her at Conie Fong Art Etsy store.

I printed the digi stamp image on Canson 98lb Mix Media paper
with my hp LaserJet printer. I water colored the image with
Distress Ink pads and touched up with PrismaColor pencils.

I truly enjoyed coloring up this gorgeous fairy.
The drawing is so detailed which makes it easy to do the shading.


I used the current sketch from Noor Design for my card layout.
You can click on the image for the challenge link.



Design paper ~ Maja Design Fika collection
Dies ~ Go Kreate, Joy Crafts, Marianne Design, Magnolia and Spellbinders
Other embellishments are from The Ribbon Girls.


I hope my creation has inspired you to create something with
Conie Fong's beautiful images. You can see all her
beautiful digis at Conie Fong Art Etsy store.

We'd love you to join us on Conie Fong Art & Design Facebook Group
and share your beautiful Conie Fong Art creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.
