Last post of Kay’s Takeover

Hey.  I forgot to post the last post of Kay's takeover of my blog.  I am missing her tremendously.  Ouch.  But here is her post, and I will be back tomorrow (after my big class tonight!) to post more…

Hello! It’s Kay on Day Seven of the seven day Non-Hostile Takeover. Isn’t it sad that this is the last day I’m going to be posting? Let me take a moment…

Alright! Lets move on to the last card. This card was created using a Hero Arts light blue note card, which was inked with Memories Ink in midnight blue. The ink pad was pressed directly on the note card. The beautiful thing about ink is that you can make paper any color you want. The “stars” in the “sky” are made of Diamond Stickles which I accidently put in rows. Even though it would’ve looked better randomly, but hey. (Blood of a mathematician, you know?) The stamp is one of my favorite Hero Arts owls, which was colored with the almighty Copics markers and Hero Arts black pearls for the eyes.


What I usually do for card inspiration is to first find a stamp that I really love. Sometimes, when I see the stamp, I see what I want to do for the card in my head, minus the greeting. Then I go to the stamp greetings cabinet and pick one out. That simple! I actually made some mistakes in this card… wait. There are no such thing as mistakes!

This card reminds me of the country side at night, with all of the stars in a dark sky. The owl is just sooooo cute, I think, which is why it made my top five favorite products list.

Just a thought… have you noticed how many Hero Arts products I’ve been using since the historical Pink Card where I didn't use Hero? That’s called “buttering up”, a skill I learned in French class. That and putting your hair up with a pencil.

Anyways. This has been an amazing week of blogging and I look forward to taking over again sometimes. It’s practically historical, Non-Hostile Cyber Takeover Week, and I know this is one history test I know I’ll make an A in.

Until next time, may you be as happy as my family with a camera.

  9. Kay, I really enjoyed your take over and all the card samples you shared with us on your mum’s blog. Hopefully you will get a blog of your own to inspire kids your age to get into card making. Of course, I would probably look at it, too, because I love your sense of humor! You deserve an A+ for your take over!
