You’re The Best!

Hello everyone!  Yayy, it’s Kymona from KreativeKymona and  I’m so excited to be here sharing what I love with all of you.

I was asked to work with a Hero Arts Digital set called Pretty Blossoms Digital. I had so much fun creating with this set.  This set comes with four different flowers.  Working in digital isn’t my go to but after creating this card, it just might be.

I had fun positioning and repositioning my flowers on my computer screen before printing it on my cardstock.

I decided to go with only one flower for this card because I wanted it to be my focal point.

Take a look at my card:

You're the best

Clean and Simple, right!!  That is what I was aiming for.  Doesn’t this card scream encouragement!!

 

How did I create this card you ask:

1. I used my computer program to reposition my flower where I wanted it to appear when printed. I printed two copies.

2.  I used Copic marker Y19 and YR16 to color my flower.

3. I fussy cut out one of my flowers.

4. I added a Wink of Stella in clear to the base of the flower.

you're the best 3

5. I used my bone folder to break the fibers in the paper so that my flower could rest off of my card without touching the card base.

You're the best2

6.  I added a Hero Arts Gemstone to the center of my flower.

7.  I stamped the sentiment “you’re the best” from Hero Arts Everyday Saying stamp set.

8. I rounded all of the corners with my corner chomper.

So what do you think?  Working with printable digital images are easy and fun to use.  I hope you give them a try.

Hello, I’m Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a women who never slows down and loves it. Yes... I am the energizer bunny's sister! I just keep going and going (which is something that I am working on, if you follow my weekly wishes on my blog). I am a single mother of two wonderful children who are 8 years apart. My 16 year old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of ! My 7 year old daughter is a real life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! ...but I love it!! Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends and have a huge love of learning new things. I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking and card-making. I love them all, however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since. I started out as a hobbyist just making cards for family and friends. People were always ecstatic when they received a card from me. What they did not know was that it made me feel just as special to make a card for them. This passion pushed me into teaching card-making classes at work with a couple of coworkers who wanted to learn how to make projects for their families. In September 2013, I made a big leap and created my blog, Kreative Kymona. Besides being a mom, I think that this has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. Just being able to share with my world community makes life so rewarding!
