Another from Kay…

Hey, there!  I am in Orlando for CHA.  Lots of fun stuff happening at Hero. Be sure to follow them on Twitter (myheroarts) to get peeks at new stamps.  In the meantime, here is a post from my sweet Kay…

‘Ello! It’s Kay, during the takeover week! Today has been pretty interesting, because I looked on the Hero Arts website (okay, Mum showed me) and saw that there was a contest for the week, where you have to make a monochromatic colored card to win stamps. The first thing I thought was… why do you we need more stamps?

I entered anyways though, just for fun, and I created my very first all pink card in the era of all of my cards, which means this is a historical day. Personally, I’m just glad that this is one history test I’ll ace! But what’s funny about the card, entered for the Hero contest, it used almost entirely the competitions products. The only Hero products I used were the ink on the background, the note card, and the pearl. Thankfully, my Mum tells me that Hero supports other companies, so it’s all good. After all, if all the other companies were like my snapdragons and died, this beautiful art would be extinct. But, unlike my snapdragons, the companies are respectful of competition and thrive. (I have a long history of killing entire beds of snapdragons.  Ha.)

This card was created with a pale pink Hero Arts note card that was turned a darker color with the Soft Blossom ink. The butterflies were stamped on the same color card with the same ink, and the “happiness” stamp is on another piece of pale pink note card. The butterflies are held on by Pop-dots and the ribbon is silk ribbon. The Stickles are also distributed by Hero Arts and they are the color Diamond. So here is the card itself:


Tomorrow I plan on posting a video of another card, using another one of my favorite products ever (chalk!) This is super exciting because it means three things: first, I get to use chalk! Second, I get to use my video camera. And third, I get to edit a movie, which is one of my one true loves along with horseback riding, card making, and Graeters ice cream!

I know this is a little off subject, but the best ice cream in the entire world is Black Raspberry Chip from Graeters. It is soooooo good…

Until then, may you be as happy as my brother with a milk.

  1. Love your card Kay! And, I love Graeter’s too. They don’t have it here in South Carolina, but when my brother went to OSU we would go there when we visited!!! YUMMY!

  2. You are so stinkin’ cute, Kay! You certainly have lots of your mum’s talent at card making! Thanks for the fun post!!

  3. Cute card Kay! You’ve learned from the best. Love the project on the previous post too BTW!

  4. So cute Kay, both your post and your card!! Every week I see the challenge and have great intentions, but you have really inspired me to do it this week. Looking forward to your video too!

  5. Kay I really like your card. You really crack me up, as a teacher I always enjoy students who make me laugh when they are just telling me something and not trying to be comical. Don’t feel bad about the snapdragons, I kill almost everything..including english ivy…what?? That stuff is impossible to kill. Have a great day!

  6. Great card again, Kay! I so love ice-cream, too! Unfortunately we don`t have the really good stuff here (in Germany), but they started selling Häagn Dasz and Ben & Jerrys in the supermarkets now. Mmh, New York Super Fudge Chunck – death by chocolate! Looking forward to see your video!

  7. Another great card, Kay. That ice cream sounds amazing – we don’t have that brand in the UK unfortunately, but we have a local dairy that makes some great stuff. Looking forward to your video – are you going to do a fun commentary or have a music background and text comments?

  8. Great card Kay!! great shot of the card I can actually see the glitter. I’ve never heard of that brand of ice cream but it sounds delicious. I’m having lots of fun reading your posts. I am looking forward to your video. Tell mum we can hardly wait to hear all about CHA. : )

  9. Kay, reading your blog entry makes me anxious to see your video tomorrow. You sound really cute when you write and I think you must have a terrific sense of humor. 🙂

    Keep your lovely cards coming! I’m enjoying seeing your creations.

  13. Kay your card is FANTASTIC.
    Glad your Mum is letting you post here. You are fun and awesome.
    Not so sure about the Raspberry Ice Cream tho – Mint Chocolate Chip is better. ha

  14. Kay, That is an absolutely stunning
    card! You did a superior job! And,
    thanks for sharing with us…you are an inspiration!

  15. Kay, love the card – and the ice cream … I’m from NY and they don’t sell it here – only have a chance to indulge when I visit friends in your neck of the woods (around here Turkey Hill is my favorite – black raspberry of course).

  16. Wow Kay – that card is GORGEOUS. I love the details you’ve added, and the sweet butterfly stamp. Stunning card. You are sooooo talented.

  17. Kay, your card is beautiful. I love the glittery butterflies and the interest you added to the background by inking it. You did a great job with that ribbon.

    Too bad about the snapdragons!

  18. Great monochromatic card, Kay! I think I have that Inkadinkado butterfly stamp, too! Love the glittery goodness!

  19. Kay, I’m lovin’ your posts! And – you’re obviously very talented, just like your mum. May the rest of your week be as happy as I am reading this blog. 🙂

  20. Kay,

    The card is so cute! I love reading your blog!

    And by the way, MOCHA CHIP is #1!!

    Looking forward to your video.


  21. Kay, I love your card, it is beautiful – well done. Your Mum better watch out! BTW, I loved the stamp you used yesterday, so I called Stampendous today to find out how to get one, and apparently there isn’t one in stock, so they are going to make me one! I told them about your card, and they wanted to know the name of the blog so they could look it up. Maybe you’ll be famous!

  22. Wow – Kay, you sure have a knack for creating great cards and awesome blog posts – I hope that when you are older you find a career that lets you use these awesome skills!

  23. Good MOrning Kay,Good choice for ice cream it is my favorite as well. Is that a store brand? Very nice card. Thank you. Maureen

  24. Awesome card, Kay! Pink is my favorite color, so I’m glad you chose that for your monochromatic color scheme. I’m also LOVING your posts–you’re so articulate and funny and I hope your Mum lets you continue to be a “guest poster” in the future!!

  25. So much talent in the McGuire household! Luvin’ your posts, Kay! Perhaps when mum comes back you’ll have to get your own 🙂

  26. Kay, this card is beautiful!!! It’s almost embarrassing to see your beautiful things and suddenly see my stuff!
    Cant wait to see your video, yipppiiee!!!
    I am as happy as *me* with a HUGE chocolate ice-cream!

  27. “Why do we need more stamps?” That’s the part that cracked me up. We all suffer from that, so many stamps and still we need more. Your posts are so witty and your talent is amazing. Thank you for taking time to post while mum is away.

  28. I love your card Kay! It has two things I currently obsessed with right now – pink and butterflies! =D

    Looking forward to your next card!

    BTW, I would love to try Black Raspberry Chip ice cream. Unfortunately, we don’t have Graeter’s here.
