Craft Therapy, Part 2

More creations from the time spent in my craft room. This time I used an Art Impressions image that I stamped with black Memento ink onto a photograph. Also used an Art Impressions foliage stamp plus a yellow-orange and rust ink pads to fill the trees with color! Mounted the stamped photo behind a few die cut ovals. Finished it off with the cute Bugaboo digi image named Autumn Squirrel and a sentiment digi from TLC Creations (

My second entry into Beccy's Place Fifth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. This card, for "B" features the star of Beccy's digi set, "Baby Robin. The card base is a variation that I made to a design found here Was fun to use some of the vintage music sheets that belonged to my grandmother-in-law. Most of them are over 60 years old!

Had fun creating an entry into Art Impressions "Third Dimension" challenge. Used their Happy Purrday set plus a few window die cuts.  The cute squirrel is a free digi from I colored the printed digi then fussy cut and attached him to a free clip art branch with foam tape.  To add more dimension, I created a "chair" in the front of the card,  added a section of a plastic doily and then attached the cat crew with foam tape. The sentiment on the inside of the card is from Beccy's Place digi set titled "Narcissus."

  4. I love the artsy look of your cabin in the woods Kathy, it's a little piece of art. The colour combination is wonderful and I love the image.
    Your Baby Robin card is lovely, the music sheets look great behind the little bird, which you've coloured beautifully. I like your take on the card fold too.
    The last card is adorable! I love all those little kitties lined up at the window watching the squirrel. What a cute design! Well done Kathy.

  5. Fabulous card! Great design. Thanks for joining us at Double "D" Challenges.
