A card for the Mr. and Mrs.

Wedding season and Valentine's Day are almost upon us!  Aren't these bird images just perfect for the Mr. and Mrs. card?  I absolutely love his striped waistcoat and the flower in her hair along with the long flowing tail or train.  For this card I used:

1.  White card blank
2. Floral patterned paper from Kaiser Kraft
3. Pink floral border from Queen and Company
4. Wooden ampersand
5.  Double Wedding Stamp Queen Kat Designs
6. Colored pencils
7.  Liquid adhesive and dimensional adhesive
8.  Medium corner rounder

I love these images and I think the patterned paper and the wooden ampersand set them off just perfectly.  Next week, I will be back with more of these images.

Another Colorway for Charlie and Thomas from QKD

It's almost Valentine's Day and Charlie and Thomas are ready!  Did you know on February 14, 1920 the League of Women Voters was formed?  The background of the card is made from a do it yourself newspaper site.  I simply entered the date and looked up the news!  Very fun!  Charlie and Thomas are new this month to QKD.  I adore this image Charlie and Thomas by Beverly Cowan.  Aren't they magical and chic!  Check out the Queen Kat Design store for fabulous vintage images!  I used a variety of techniques to color the images including gel pens and metallic pencils.  Love these two!

QKD Goes Vintage!

Welcome back to the era of our grandma and grandpa! (or maybe for some of you, your great grandparents)  I adore this image Charlie and Thomas by Beverly Cowan.  Aren't they magical and chic!  This month, I will be showing them in a variety of color ways.  Check out the Queen Kat Design store for fabulous vintage images!

This card was really fun to make.  The button with the leaves is a vintage button from my stash, probably not dating back to the Roaring 20s, but close.  The swirl is from Jolee's and the sentiment from Tim Holtz!  I can hardly wait to make this in a Valentine color scheme!

Have a great week!

Faith Card - Happy New Year

Welcome to 2014 from me! I love this stamp that I picked up over at Queen Kat Designs store called Faith Digital Heart Stamp by Miss Megs.  I printed this stamp directly on the clock paper from Webster's Pages, which was 6 x 6 inches.  I set the image at 80% of a 4 x 6 inch print.  The image is colored with Sakura gel pens.  It was then simply cut to 4 x 5 1/4 inches, to fit the white card blank (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches).  I think this makes a fabulous card for the new year.  It also almost makes me want to get a tattoo!

Happy New Year!
