Birthday Boy March 11, 2013

Filed under: Birthdays,C.C. Designs,Kids — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Hello friends!  How are things in your neck of the woods?

Things are good here in Limerick, PA – the spring weather this weekend has put a pep in everyone’s step for sure!

Today I have a quick post for you.  My son is helping me write this post, so he got to choose the card today. Everyone seems to need a masculine card now and then – and they seem to be the hardest ones to create.  Why are guys so hard to create for???  hmmm…..  I’m guessing it’s because they don’t like the florals, buttons, and bows that we tend to like to create with.

Well, anyhow, here’s Brendan’s pick of cards for you –



This is a simple birthday card for the simple boys.  Made with C.C. Designs Balloon Trevor – I just LOVE these stamps!!

I colored Trevor with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol – a fav technique of mine – and then used some patterned papers and die cut the sentiment and he’s ready to go!


Hope you enjoyed this “guest post” by Brendan 🙂  Thanks for stopping by!



Here Comes The Bride June 20, 2012

Filed under: C.C. Designs,Cuttlebug,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:11 am

What would June be if I didn’t pop in with a bridal card? 🙂

Here is my take on a soft bridal card full of white, pearls, and roses.  I had fun coloring this bride and also figuring out the cutting of the card.  I knew I wanted to do a circle with her on the inside and pearls all around.

The front of the card with a soft sentiment and more pearls.

The inside of the card with the stamp and a sentiment and a wish!

Some layers and texture add to the details on the front of the card.  I just love this beautiful bride stamp – may have to go and make some more cards with her just to play!

So there you go – June with a bridal card 🙂

I’ll be back again next week, although it will probably be a pretyped post since I will be in the middle of the big move!  We are getting excited!! 🙂  The next few days I will be packing up my “craft workshop” or shall I say, what I have out in crafts.  It is always hard for me to do – I have to say I liked when the movers did it a lot better!  But I keep focused on the end prize and I will be up and running again real soon!!

Take care – thanks for stopping by!



Happy Birthday! April 27, 2012

Filed under: Birthdays,C.C. Designs,Kids,Ribbons,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

A special day here tomorrow, as my darling daughter turns 9!   Where did the time go?  I can hardly believe that her childhood is almost gone!  How time is fleeting these days!


I wanted to share a card I made for one of the lovely girlies in my life  – my favorite stamps are the kids from C.C.Designs and this one is part of their birthday line and has a pretty ribbon in her hands to celebrate.  I used an older paper pad to create with and added a popped up sentiment.   A button with twine adds a special touch to the card.

Here’s hoping you all have a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for checking me out today!

Winter Wishes December 9, 2011

Have you missed me???  I haven’t been hiding, just been very busy as I’m sure you are too!!  Tis the season!!  🙂

Things are fine here in Danville, just getting ready for the arctic cold to come tonight so I thought I’d send out a fun card I made for a holiday card exchange I did a few weeks ago.  Check this little cutie out:

The front of the card.

Then here is the inside of the card – with a fun surprise for the recipient too!! 


Lots of fun going on both inside and out!   And I used some of my favorite stamps – lots of little ideas, but it all came together so cutely and I really enjoyed it!


Take care and stay warm this weekend!



Tree Trimming and Treats July 27, 2011

Hi All!  If you are stopping in, I just want to let you know that you are entering the CHRISTMAS IN JULY  fun on my blog today!

Wahoo!!  I can hardly believe it!!   Can you guess what today is???

This is my 100th post!!! 

It seems like it was just yesterday I got the nudge from Beth and Colleen to start doing this!  I guess it’s time to PARTY!!   Who wants to win some blog candy??  Well, leave me a comment here on this post and I’ll pick one person randomly to win something fun!!


Now onto the crafts – I am having a hard time that it is already the end of July and that I only have 2 more posts in this Christmas in July funness!!  This week has been another whirlwind for me and my gang as I am trying to get packed and ready to go to CKC in Valley Forge!  I can’t wait to take some new classes, see some familiar faces and spend time with crafty goodness all around me – hee hee – I feel like a kid winning the golden ticket to go to the candy factory! 🙂


Anyway, this is the card I have to share with you today – I so adore this little guy – Ornament Trevor from C.C. Designs


The picture does not do it justice – and yes, the card colors really DO match more in person than on this pic.  It looks like the reds are just way off, huh?  Oh, well, I am learning new things about my camera everyday and I guess I’ll chalk this one up for more experience!   I love the C.C. Designs little kiddos and they are certainly fun to color.  The papers are from my stash as I am trying to use up the old before buying tons more and the sentiment (studio g) is added with one of my fav organdy ribbons.


Okay, now don’t forget to leave me a comment for your chance to WIN – tell me what card/project  has been your favorite to view over the course of the Christmas in July posts??  OR you can tell me what has been your favorite post over the past 100 that I have done! ha!

thanks for stopping by today – enjoy the day!!

Skiing By With A Little Hi! July 13, 2011

Filed under: C.C. Designs,Christmas,For Sale,Ribbons — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

If you are just stopping by, you have stumbled into my CHRISTMAS IN JULY postings – sit back, relax and enjoy!


Hello out there in cyber world!  Another Wednesday and another fun card to post today! 🙂   Okay, I have to tell you that I fell in love with this little stamped image mostly because of the cute hat 😉 *wink*   I have never been, nor do I ever wish to go skiing!  The  thought of flinging myself down a cold, snowy mountainside on two little boards holds no appeal to me – I would much rather be in the cabin cozied up with a big blankie and a cup of cocoa!  But I like this little guy and I know that many others like to ski. 


I had a little fun with the colors on this – added some not-so-traditional ones to match the patterned papers and I also added a bit of dimension to the card with the snow on the bottom – it is puffed up with liquid applique.  The snowflakes are buttons and I added lots of fun ribbons to the side – no bow so it could be more masculine!

Warm wishes to you all – hee hee – for a great Wednesday!  Enjoy yourself!

Christmas Cocoa July 6, 2011

Filed under: C.C. Designs,Christmas,For Sale,Ribbons — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Hi All!  In case you are just stopping in, I want to let you know that you are entering the CHRISTMAS IN JULY fun on my blog today!


Hidey Ho Campers!  another fun day set for today – and hopefully you’ll find this card a cutie too!

This is Cocoa Emma from C.C. Designs and I just fell in love with her when she was released!!  I had to have her and of course her little bench too!  I colored these a bit ago with my friend in CA – hello Kimberly! – and we had fun together as I was showing her the colored pencil and gamsol blending technique.  I just love this technique and I think it looks just as nice as some of the images colored with the copic markers which is something I just can’t get into – mainly because each marker runs about $4 each – yikes!  Anyhoo – this is just as fun in my book!  Click to enlarge her to see the coloring a detail of the card – it is one of my favorites!


Hope you all have a super duper day!
