Hello Cupcake! March 14, 2013

Filed under: Birthdays,Kids,MFT Stamps,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 12:00 am

Happy Wednesday!   Thanks for stopping by!

I have a cute little card for you today that I whipped up a while back but just noticed that I forgot to post.

If you’ve been here before, you know I have a little obsession with cupcakes – and anything cupcake related!  They are SO popular right now and fun to make, create with, and of course, eat!  Yummo!

Here is my little cupcake girl card :

 

hello cupcake

Who wouldn’t like to get this cutie in the mail?? 🙂  I love it!

I stamped the image – MFT Pure Innocence Hello Cupcake – in black ink, the paper pieced her dress and cupcake wrapper.  I colored the rest using prismacolor pencils and gamsol blended it.  I used some Spellbinders dies to cut the image out and also a little sentiment.  Finished off with some cute patterned paper and a twine bow.

 

So, that’s it for today – just a little cupcake cutie!

Hope you are enjoying your week!  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 Anniversary May 3, 2012

Filed under: Anniversary,Ribbons,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

How is your week going?  So far, so good on this end! 🙂

I’m back again today to share a simple card with you.  I sent this in for a submission call, but it was rejected, so off to the pile  it goes!

 

Today is one of my very good friends anniversary – so many years ago that I can’t even remember how many!  Seems like they have been together forever since I know they were high school sweethearts, I knew them thru college, and then they got married.  I still remember the day they got married.  They had the wedding in the tiniest little country church.  We were running late getting there and when we finally arrived, out I stepped from the car and landed my fancy high heels into a pile of horse poop!  Not a great thing to have happen on your way into church!   Then we went up to the church, which they had already shut the front doors for the ceremony and when we opened them, the WHOLE congregation turned around to see us!  I guess they thought I was the bride coming down the aisle!  Talk about embarrassing!!  We had to then “sneak” into the back and since there were so many people, it was standing room only.  A beautiful ceremony followed by a wonderful reception… and the rest is history!  We have moved all around the country, but we have remained close – even being pregnant at the same time and having our daughters only 3 days apart!

 

So, I want to say Happy Anniversary to Brian and Steph!  May you have MANY more wonderful years together!

Fun flowers created with Spellbinders blossom nesties in all sizes.  Monochromatic look with cardstock, buttons, and ink.  Tied it off with an organdy ribbon and a little tag to wish them Happy Anniversary!

 

Thanks for stopping by – see you all next week!

Graduation Glitter May 1, 2012

Filed under: Card Maker Magazine,Clear Dollar Stamps,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Well, I am not trying to brag or anything, but I am here again today to share another publication! Yeah!  I get SO excited to share my good news here with all of you!  This is the May/June Issue of CardMaker Magazine that I have been published in.  The call was for graduation cards and the theme for the magazine was glitter, glitz, and glam. 

 

Here is the cover:

 

And here is the page that I am on – just love seeing my name in print!  And my son, Brendan, and I agreed that this is definitely NOT the best picture of my work that they could have showcased.  But that is up to their photographer and graphic editor, not us!

 

And here is a close-up of the card that I submitted.

 

Now, let’s play the game from Sesame Street many a year ago….. “Which One Of These Is Not Like the Other?”

Yep, if you said my submitted card was different, then you guessed it!  Sometimes, the editors like the design but want to tweak it to their exact liking.  This time, they liked my card, but wanted me to change the background to more red.  They give you specific directions and then you do it and send it in.  I guess it is ultimately up to them if they choose to use it since I have to wait for an acceptance contract again, but hey, I am happy to have had 3 publications this year!

 

Thanks for stopping in to see my happy news!

Take care –

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!

Turtle Fun April 19, 2012

Filed under: Birthdays,Kids,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by again today!  I know what you are thinking… three days of posts in a row?!?!?  🙂  Ahh, yes, I have been in a blogging mood this week so you get to reap the rewards!

 

Thought I’d show you a fun card I made – just LOVE this little turtle!  I couldn’t resist getting him since birthday cards seem to be what I need to make the most of!  I made him more masculine than my normal cards, but I thought that even the little men in my life would get a kick out of getting him in the mail. 🙂

 

Fun coloring and an easy card layout made this card a fast and easy one to create!

Off for more fun today – hope you are getting lots accomplished this week as well!

Winter Wishes December 9, 2011

Filed under: C.C. Designs,Christmas,Cuttlebug,For Sale,Gifts,Kids,Papertrey Ink,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

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!
