twins birthday

My cousins Luke and Oliver are turning 8 this year so I made them same but different cards.

Here is Luke's:

And here is Oliver's:

The penguins are an old stamp'n up set. I put stickles on the water of both and coloured them my-self. I like these penguins a lot because they are cute and funny.

This card is for my cousin Ellie who is turning 14! I did the "Ellie" in pink and I added glossy accents to the Ellie so that it would stand out from the rest of the word. The patterned paper is from doodle bug and the letters are from memory box.

Sara's birthday card

This card is for my friend Sara who's birthday is on Wednesday. She is turning 11!  I was inspired by the movie "UP!". I used a 1 inch circle punch for all the balloons and I drew in the strings. I prefer to use stamps to make EVERYTHING but I think drawing it makes it look messy which works since it's string blowing away in the sky.

CASology #113

This card is for CASology #113. I didn't just want to do grass but it still had to be grassy so i did a penguin wearing a grass skirt from a stamping up set. I finished it of by using what I call surfer font for the happy birthday.

Bev's birthday

This card is for Bev's birthday. Surprise!!!!!! Happy birthday Bev! i was inspired by this card (which she made)

I used the same alphabet (without capitals) and I wanted to also include the circles at the bottom (sequins?) but differently so I used Christmas lights and colored them controlled randomly, as my mom would say. I also made it in rainbow but i did not like it as much and the over lapping was messy so i re-did it with just warm colors

2nd entry


                                  This will be my 2nd entry this week because I got this good idea:

I did it 7 times before i liked it (because I stamped it upside down or because it was not straight). I know this one's not perfect but it was the best one.

CASology #110

For this challenge I used Hero Arts lol set for the phone, heart and smiley face and the I heart you is from Paper Smooches.  I started off with the idea of an email and it kinda changed to text but I think it still connects to letter.

my painting

So the other day I found a canvas in my play room. I wanted to paint something abstract and i found this on Pintrest and I thought that I was going to make it. Here is how I made the painting. I toke the scotch blue tape and made a random design (you can make the tape as neat or as random as you want). Next I chose which colors to use (rainbow plus pink). And then I painted all the big and little areas. Then I waited for the paint to dry. And finally peeled of the tape to reveal the final creation.

CASology 109


here is my java card:

I'm excited to be the guest designer this week! I don't actually know much about coffee since I don't drink it. For the coffee in my card I embosed the "cream" in clear and then sponged it with photo, twigs and walnut distress inks. For the mug I cut a whole bunch of the 2 circles and glued the rings together and added the handle. For the sentiment I looked through a LOT of different sets and found this one in a Technique Tuesday set. I used it because cream lightens up coffee.

Muse Challenge #78


this was my inspiration:

This is my muse card. I met Bev last fall when I was visiting my aunt with my mom. Bev's a nice lady.  For this card I focused on the colors and the frame. I used photo booth from neat and tangled and face it from the alley way stamps.

CASology 106


As soon as I hear the word rainbow I think of unicorns which is why my card has a unicorn on it. F.Y.I: the sentiment and the horn were my first heat embossing that I did by myself. I hand coloured the rainbow mane and tail. This is for CASology.

owl stickers

These wall stickers are from my friends birthday party (Taylor, the one who the wood card was for). My parents don't like me putting things on the wall because they might peel the paint off the wall when we take them off, so my mom bought me some foam core and then I stuck them on and coloured them with copics because the stickers started out clear. I will use this as art in my room:

Muse 77 - Happy Birthday

muse challenge #77

for this card I switched the colors

On the stamp of the bird, the bird is on a post like a pet parrot so I added to the branch and drew leaves by hand.

one layer simplicity challenge #7: wave the flag

                              This card is for the one layer simplicity challenge #7: wave the flag 

                                              This card was inspired by the Chinese flag:

                  The card would be red but it ONE layer simplicity so that is why the sentiment is red.

CASology #105

This card ALL started with the raccoon as the main idea because it looked like it was running. So then I went and looked for a sentiment that make sense and that I could do something with. Then I added the heart over his eye to make it look like the raccoon was CRAZY.... in love, like in cartoons! :)

CASology #100 celebrate


This is my 2nd post on this new blog platypus krafts... the reason why its crafts with spelled with a "k" is because.. 1. platypus crafts with a "c" is taken and  2. because my name is Kate which stars with a "K" : )

I was going to use a rainbow ink pad for the candle stick but it was dried out so I had to use the pink and purple ink pad which I put directly onto the paper. I drew the wick with a fine black marker and the flame is stickles. The celebrate stamp is from Hero Arts.

My old cards

These are cards I've uploaded before on CASology:

CASology 97 - Bee
