Inspired by... Kathy!!

I am so excited to feature Kathy, (AKA crzy4stamps-kathy on flickr)! She is one of my stamping idols and it is my honor to share some of her cards. I recommend adding her blog to your favorites because she is always cooking up something creative and inspiring in her corner of blogland and don't forget to check out her flickr photostream, too!

Okay, lets get started. :) Here is the first inspiration card by Kathy:

Isn't this amazing!?! Kathy's coloring of the little girl and snowy background is brilliant! I love these unexpected colors together. This card is so bright and bold! The row of brads along the bottom is such a fun touch- I love the way she incorporated them with the scallop punch! This card is just pure eye-candy!

Here is my take:Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments! :) I hope to see you tomorrow with another of Kathy's stunning masterpieces!

Supplies--Stamps: Flower (Hero Arts CG128), Sentiment (Hero Arts CL342); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Black Ink (Stampin' Up), Copic Markers (YR68, R29, Y08), Martha Stewart Markers (Granny Smith, Putty); Other: Misc. Cardstock Brads, and Thread, Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Pearls (Recollections), Scallop Punch (Fiskars)
