Happy Monday!

Well, another week has gone by, but before the month of March is gone for good, I have more exciting news to share with you. ūüôā


I was published AGAIN!¬† Yep, that’s right – I’m on a roll now!¬† HA! ūüôā


This time, the card edition was all about babies.¬† Instead of going the traditional route, I decided to pay tribute to my good friends who adopted a baby girl just about 2 years ago! (wow! that time has flown by!)¬† There are tons of cards out on the market for baby boys and baby girls, but there are not that many for adoptive parents.¬† So here is my take on a card for them ūüôā



I just couldn’t help myself with the butterfly – it s such a symbol for me and I love¬†the colors of this card.¬† When I chose the papers, I knew just what I wanted to do with them and was pleased it came out for me.¬† Now submitting it, you never know if someone else is going to like the idea or not.¬† But, they did!


Here’s a copy of the magazine it is featured in – CardMaker¬†March/April edition – on newsstands NOW!¬† (or you can click the image to go to the website and purchase!)

CardMaker March 2012

Off to go create some more fun – take care and thanks for sharing my fun with me!

Flowers On Black March 23, 2012

Filed under: DeNami Design,Ribbons — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Hi All!

So I had this vision…. I saw this beautiful shirt a while back in a catalog and thought – “WOW!¬† That pattern is stunning… it would look really cool done on a card.¬† I wonder if I can pull it off?”¬† Fast forward to the other day when I sat down to make some cards and I had no thoughts as to what exactly to make.¬† I thought of that black cardstock and the challenge I wanted to attempt and here is what came out.

I stamped the flower and leaf images with white ink and then colored them with prismacolor¬†pencils.¬† Blended the colors just a touch with the gamsol technique and was pretty happy with how it turned out.¬† It’s hard to see in the picture because of the lighting, but it is fuschia and turquoise and a lime green on the black with white.¬† Not too shabby for a first attempt, so I went on to make this card too…


Now, I like the first¬†one, but the second card turned out good too.¬† It was fun to “play” with a new technique and see how it turned out.¬† I like the look of the colors on the black, but I have to say that choosing the right colors to color with is the key.¬† Not many colors will show up very well on the black cardstock, I had to be choosy.¬† And that is one reason why I chose the simple flowers and leaves.¬† These DeNami stamps were just the right stamp to try this with and now I am addicted to these little flowers….must make more!

Hope you enjoy – maybe it will inspire you to try something new today too!

Have a great weekend!

Sweetness! March 19, 2012

Filed under: Card Maker Magazine,Martha Stewart,Papertrey Ink — anotherkatecreation @ 7:39 am

I feel like the months and days are flying by this year already!¬† Can’t believe it is mid March already!¬† I forgot to get this posted here for you all to see…..¬† I’ve been published again!¬†¬† Part of the problem is the publication dates are off from the actual deadlines I have – for this one, it was last summer!


This time it was the CardMaker Magazine for their January/February issue.¬†¬† I submitted several designs and this one was picked up.¬† I was very excited to see that I had “made it” again.¬† It’s always a good feeling to know that someone out there likes your design and appreciates your hard work.


Here is a copy of the cover of the magazine… (click image to go to the site to purchase if you wish)

CardMaker January 2012


and here is my card…..


I had fun designing this one Рit was a real easy card with just one Martha Stewart punch in several different colors layered on top of each other.  The sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink.  Hope you enjoy!


Have a great Monday!

DeNami Birthday Blog Hop March 12, 2012

Filed under: Birthdays,DeNami Design,Gifts,Kids — anotherkatecreation @ 9:03 am

Hi Everybody!¬† Welcome to the DeNami Birthday Blog Hop!¬† If you have arrived here from NICKI’S BLOG, then you are on the right track!¬† If you just popped in on my blog, but would like to start at the beginning, head on over to the DeNami blog.¬†

First off, let me say sorry for not getting this posted yesterday, but….. we have had the stomach flu going through our house and while I had two kids down with it last week and a hubby away, I did get a chance to sneak in some card making.¬† Unfortunately, the higher powers had other plans for me on Sunday.¬† Just when I though the bug had left the house, it hit me.¬† And boy, did it hit me hard.¬†¬† Anyway, without going into details, let’s just say I don’t think I have ever been so sick in my life.¬†¬† I couldn’t even get out of bed, let alone turn on the computer for a post. Ugh.¬† I’m feeling a bit better today, but I’m hoping this is the end for everyone in my house.

So on to the fun…..¬† Birthdays are such a fun time.¬† They are the occassion¬† that I like to make cards for most of all.¬† And I especially like to make them for someone in particular and while I make the card, I think of that person.¬† I like to think it adds a little something special to the card!¬† And I like to think of what their reaction will be when the receive the card – that’s my favorite part!

The first card I have for you today is for the younger set – or the young at heart!¬† I just love this stamp, and have done it before, but since I have several nephews who have summer birthdays, I thought I’d whip up a cute summery birthday card for them!


stamp: ICE CREAM CONE patterned paper: wite out line (sorry I pulled from the old stash!)

coloring: prismacolor pencils, gamsol, glitter roller pen

accents: TWINE, jewel

The next card I have is one that uses a stamp that I fell in love with because of its’ wistfulness.¬† Now DeNami puts in the wedding stamp category, but I happen to think it could be a fancy birthday cake!¬† See what you think.



cardstock: white

patterned paper: Basic Grey Capella

coloring: prismacolor pencils, gamsol


Okay, continue on your way now through blogland – off you go to DANA’S BLOG!¬† Hope you enjoyed viewing my take on¬†some birthday treats!¬† Remember to leave comments on the blogs as DeNami has a lot of great prizes to give away!!
