Father’s Day … a beacon of light

I did not fall into a deep abyss…

sure it seemed like it!

What’s that saying … “Life happens while we you are busy making plans”….

Yes, it has been too long since I have posted a card … because it has been way too long since I have stamped!  I eventually ran out of cards and was forced too… are you sitting down 

brace yourself …      

I had to give … a store-bought card!    (oh the horror!) ;)

But, NOT this Father’s Day!

 •••

Before I get to my card (yes, there is one – yea!) and other exciting KSS news, I want to thank everyone who reached out during this quiet spell. Your checking in and making sure that everything was ok, meant the world to me! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

•••

Now, even though I have been quiet, I have been busy the past couple of months. Doing what?

For starters …  I’ve been busy designing NEW STAMPS!!! Yup, that’s correct! You can look forward to sneak peeks in the near future! Also, you will find that many more digital die cut files have been added to the KSS store. (I’m almost caught up!)

Other exciting news, KSS is sponsoring a Father’s Day Challenge with the Mod SquadThere you’ll find an awesome Multi Step Baseball card from Judy, to get you inspired for the challenge!  And this just the beginning … you can expect to see KSS as a Mod Squad sponsor once a month (if this doesn’t get me back to stamping… I don’t know what will!) ;)

 Lighthouse-with-pine-trees

Determined not to let another holiday go by and having to purchase my cards, I took the Mod Squad’s challenge as the “kick in the pants” I needed to start stamping again. But, first I would have to dig under the accumulated “stuff” that found a home on my craft table (I knew it was there somewhere), dusted off the ink pads and get to work! At first, it sort of felt like learning how to walk again … but before I knew it, I was back to running and got 4 cards done! (oh yeah!)

Lighthouse-with-pine-trees-clsup

Remember when layering Holly Hobbie cut outs, gluing one on top each other in a shadow box was the big thing to do? (I just dated myself?) Well, I reverted back to my childhood crafting days to give this Father’s Day card some depth and layered a pine tree over the rock .  The water was created using the ink pad technique. The sea spray, daubing on top of the water with a sponge and Opaque White (paint?) from Copic.

Thanks for looking!

It’s beginning to look a lot like …

 Christmas!

Stamped using  Multi Step Snowy Pine Trees and Multi Step Ornaments & Stars for this quick sepia Christmas card.

… which I have to admit, would not be so quick if I had to cut the tree out by hand. The digital download from Multi Step Snowy Pines can be found HERE.  If only decorating the real tree was this easy. ;)

Deck the Halls … (take 2)

[Oops! Sorry –  hit “publish” before I was ready! Too much turkey, I’m still sleepy in the head!]

Happy KSS Monday!

… getting ready for Christmas!

•••

3-Orniments

With my finger, I smeared a small amount of Rock Candy – Distress Stickles, over each ornament to make them sparkle. After the ornaments dried, I used a 1/16″ hole punch at the top of each ornament and ran a couple of inches of silver cord through each one. Attached each ornament with a pop dot. Pierced holes where I wanted to “hang” the ornaments. Starting from the front side of my card, I threaded each end of the silver cord (with an ornament attached) through the “hanging” holes. From the back side of the card, I pulled both ends of the cord until taught, but not to hard –  you don’t want rip the ornament. Tape both ends of the cord down in back. Repeat until all ornaments are “hung”.
