Kay’s Blog Week Takeover – Day 2 + GIVEAWAY!

Guess who? If you guess Kay, you guessed right! I’m writing a blog post! AND have a giveaway! This is so exciting 🙂

Still having a good week. I think it’s all those crazy theater people that I’m spending four hours a day with, or maybe the awesome people I get to see after… but it’s just another good week from a GREAT summer. Another bonus of the day is that I’m writing this from the back porch, where it’s peaceful and serene like the… um…

Okay! I was digressing. This card has an adorable fish on it. Love THOSE fish. They’re just so cute…

Supplies: Hero Arts fish stamp; Neenah paper; Copics; Hero Arts stripe background; Soft Pool Ink; Tim Holtz die cut.

If you don’t think this is one of the cutest card ever, please raise your hand.

I see no hands raised… excellent. This is another simple card to make. I started by cutting the back off of the light blue card, and stamping the stripes stamp in the soft pool ink onto it. Then, I die-cut the paper and stamped three of the-most-adorable-fish-ever stamp. I carefully colored these with Copic markers. (Except for the last one – I kind of rushed him.) Then I cut a piece of paper thin enough to slip behind the die-cut paper. It is folded in half, with the back attached to the card and the die cut to the front, allowing it to flip open to reveal the world's-smallest-place-to-write-a-message. But it sure is fun! My mum even said she is going to use the idea in a class. (I will now pat myself on my back.)

Cute and simple. Kind of like me. 😉

So, Mum noticed I love Tim Holtz's dies as much as she does and said I could give one away. (She said the die was one the fab folks at Simon Says Stamps gave her. Thanks to them… and Mum!) So just leave a comment here by Friday night and I will personally pick a random winner of this fun die…


And! Kay’s Daily Words Of Wisdom: “Normal” is a setting on a dryer.

Something smells good.

Until tomorrow,
