Red Maisy

Hi guys. Today I thought I'd share with you a card that I made as part of my DT work for The Craft Barn.  Over on The Craft Barn's blog today they are having a 'red day' so this was my contribution!!  If you want to see the other gorgeous cards that the DT made then click here

The main image is called Maisy and she is one of the Ketto range  by Stamping Bella.  (The Craft Barn currently stock a great selection of these stamps.) The background papers are by Basic Grey from the Nook and Pantry collection and are available from The Craft Barn too.

I've included a close up of the image which I coloured using Copic Ciaos and then added some Smooch Illuminate which you can just about make out on the red scalloped oval which of course was done with my Nestabilities.

You've probably noticed that I used my new Swirl Flourish punch on this card too that I got from The Hobby House - I just LOVE this punch!!

Anyway I hope you like the card.

Hi Kay

I don't think any of us can resist the temptation when browing all the lovely internet shops, I know I always find something I love and just have to leave and write it in a book for next time!!!! My credit card would have a melt down otherwise.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog. I would love to do one for your new room, I could have a nosey through all your stuff!!!! Only kidding.
This is a great card. You've done the red perfectly, I always shy away from using it, it can be a scary colour. Love the swirls and your little image is so cute.

Thanks Chris!!

Lisa - as for having 'a nosey through all my stuff' - you may have gathered by now that I have got an awful lot of it so it would take you quite some time!! Your stool really was fabulous - shame you live so far away otherwise you would be finding another blank stool left on your doorstep for you to decorate!!

Love Kay xx

Hi Kay
Just love this little ketto.
I'm jealous as I cannot seem to get Maisie anywhere, will have to make do until she's back. Lovely card as usual.
Have a nice Easter lots of love to all xxxx

Hi Kay,

Wow! what a different colour for you. Love the cute image.

Received Craft Stamper the other day and read your latest article. I ordered the Moonglow Starburst Stains from QVC the other day. I know you use them a lot. What's the best way to use them? The ones I ordered and have now received have the dabber tops.

Hugs, Pauline x

Jo - I'm sure if you order Maisy from The Craft Barn they will get her out to you just as soon as she turns up!! They seem to have quite a quick turnover with some of the Ketto stamps and struggle to keep them in stock because as soon as they come in they are sold!! Happy Easter to you by the way!!

Pauline - you are right I LOVE the Starburst Stains - the Dabbers are probably the most versatile. You are in luck as I have just finished doing a masterclass on the stains for the August issue of Craft Stamper so keep a look out for that!! This will explain in far more detail than I can post here.
