w&w Belated 2nd Belated Birthday Bash | Special Guest Star Kathy Racoosin

200specialgueststarkathy

Today's Special Guest Star is a woman I highly respect for her boundless talent, cheerfulness, kindness and generosity.  Kathy Racoosin is a gem of a lady and a true pleasure to know online and off.  I had the honor to spend a little time with her this past January at CHA and she is just as charming, funny and delightful in person.  Don't forget to visit her on her blog The Daily Marker for a chance to win a giveaway from us and so many more. ;-)

I think you are going to be charmed by her cards today which include some really fun sneaks of our upcoming February Release.

I was inspired by Gayatri’s challenge…I love to create stamped backgrounds so this was the perfect challenge for me. I loved this set of these adorable birds as much as Shay does.

You really don’t need a lot of markers to have an impact on a card. You could also color these cuties with “regular” markers and put a layer of vellum on top.

A set of bonus cards yes please. The Scenery: Do You See What I See? Creative Screenings stencil was added on the craft cardstock with some white ink to give the cards a subtle pop.

The bird and the hat were popped up for added dimension with some foam tape. Don’t you love how a few white dots can add that little something extra? I colored the inside of the “love” sentiment with the white get pen.
