wonderful wednesdays with...


Hiya sistahs!  This month we have another special guest !  Kathy Racoosin.. otherwise known as Kathy Rac otherwise known as The Daily Marker  on Instagram.

Today, Kathy features one of our amazing new releases, “CHICKADEER”



Let’s see what the lovely and talented Kathy did with this image shall we?  You will be AMAZED!

Kathy stamped/coloured/ and die cut the image twice… and look what an amazing delicious adorable scene she created! I seriously CANNOT EVEN..

The little extras on this card are super fun and easy. After coloring the chicks add some copic blending solution on to a rag …just until it’s damp, not to wet) I think you will love the texture that a nubby rag will add to your critters. Add dots to create more texture with your markers.

Using a super fine tip marker .03 you can add tiny details like eye lashes, eye brows and designs on the presents.

For the background I masked a circle and used distress inks fro draw the eye into the center of the card. The look was complete with a stencil on top of the distressed background.

Glossy accents were added to the noses.

Here’s a video sharing Kathy’s process!

and now for some more information on and about Kathy!


Kathy LOVE’s to color and she’s in the middle of her 6th coloring challenge… “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge”.   This has become quite a “movement” if I do say so myself.  Sistahs take this challenge seriously and devote some crafty time every day to colour something up.  It’s SO much fun to participate in AND so much fun to scroll through the amazing posts and amazing talent out there!

Kathy says “This is a good time to jump in if you are new to the challenge, love to color or if you just want to get your feet wet and give the challenge a try. The idea is to color something daily with any medium. Just five minutes, that’s it. I keep hearing how relaxing it is to color and instead of making a full card. The 30 day challenge is really about carving out a little time your day for something that makes you happy. (You are free to jump in and out as time permits). Basically it’s any thing goes challenge and whatever you feel inspired to do.

There are several ways to share what you are coloring. If you want to join a community of coloring enthusiasts I recommend our new FaceBook group or Instagram. Be sure to use the hashtag #thedailymarker30day. (you can also link up your coloring on my blog)

Check out my blog for more info www.thedailymarker.com

I would be delighted if you wanted to join the challenge and a big thank you to Stamping Bella for the support to the challenge and the sweet giveaway. Hugs, Kathy

    How super cute. I really love how she made her own chick in the sleigh. I thought it was the created stamp. Kathy is amazing and the background and scene on this card are proof!!! Stampingbella and Kathy together is a PERFECT marriage!!

  9. Jane Crisci says:

    Such an adorable card! Thanks Em for the chance to win!

  10. Gail Plaskiewicz says:

    Oh my gosh, I never thought you 2 guys would get together! How cool is that? Okay, I’ve been a fan of Kathy’s since last year I think or has it been 2 years? Hey, I can’t be expected to remember everything, can I? LOL Anyway, I get her blog along with other stampers blogs (this one included) so the coloring challenge is something I have been doing for a while with her. I’ve also been coloring my whole life but got my first adult coloring book according to the date in the book in 1981 which is probably when I first got some stamps, so adult coloring books aren’t new like everyone wants you to think. They’ve been around for a long time it’s just that everyone is suddenly making a big deal about it. Kathy and I are friends or I would like to say we are. I don’t know how she feels about it! LOL Anyway, she did an amazing job, as usual, on her coloring, and her card making. If you look on her site you will see things that i have created. Now there is a chance to win something? All right! I will get on that pronto.
    I’m glad you guys got together and I hope there are more mashups between the 2 of you. Kathy is a very nice person from her comments to what I’ve said on her site and so are you. Now can we all give each other a hug and color something? LOL
