Hello Kitty Cuckoo Clock - MDF Kit by KaiserCraft

I was looking at new goodies that came in at my local scrapbooking store, and this cuckoo clock kit from KaiserCraft caught my eye.

I've always wanted a cuckoo clock, but boy are those things expensive. Every once in a while super cute and girly things catch my eye (ie. pink/glitter/kittens) and I remembered I had these little Hello Kitty toy figurines I collected ages ago...

And Hello Kitty as a mermaid (Yay! Mermaids and cats - a Mercat?)

I used some scrapbooking paper by BasicGrey attached with mod podge, decorated the edges with glitter glue, added a little wood tray for the mer-cat to sit, and some necklace chain to hang the dangly parts. Here's my finished clock:

Orchid and Other Flowers Card Making with Rubber Stamps

I can't wait until spring. I miss flowers so bad!

Here I have heat embossed an orchid on white card stock (using gold embossing powder.)

I colored the image with Copic markers.

I cut it out and used the same stamp to make a matching background on the brown craft paper.

Here are a couple more cards I made using a similar idea.

Rubber stamps from
The Enchanted Gallery

+ News: There are 4 new rubber stamp sheets arriving next week!!!
