KKS Challenge #76 May Flowers

This weeks Kraftin Kimmie challenge is to use flowers on your card. I love to use flowers. I have an abundance of them cause besides paper, it is one of my other guilty pleasures that I just can't resist.

I saved Lilybelle  especially for this challenge. I love these pale green primas's I picked up at Mary Maxim's...I  kinda wish I would have picked up more then one package. lol The designer paper that I used is from the Vicki B. collection by BoBunny.  I adore every sheet that is in this 6*6 pad. All the colours are just scrumptious.To finish it off I added some All Dressed Up adhesive ribbon and a few pearls.

To see more of this weeks cards head on over to the KKS challenge blog.

April 24 CPS

This week Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is happy to be sponsoring the sketch challenge over at Card Positioning Systems!! If you'd like to play along, you could win some new rubbah!!
...and here is this week's sketch...

I had Emelia coloured up some time ago and thought she would work perfectly with this sketch.

I used some dp from the Green Stack/ DCWV , inked around Emelia with some Frayed Burlap distress ink and added the sentiment which comes in the Kimmie's Steampunk Sentiments.

Now are you ready to play?? Then head on over to the CPS challenge blog.

Have a great day! :)

Happy long weekend everybody. I think spring may have gotten lost this year!! Has anyone seen it?!! Seriously it's snowed twice this week!

I thought maybe Rainy Day Miles here would help bring some more "spring like" weather or way. He's dressed appropriately for the season, not winter coats, hats and mitts. That's what my girls have been wearing this past week.

Anyhoo, this weeks KKS challenge was to use frilly ribbon or lace. I have an abundance of this ribbon that I had scooped up in multiple colours at The Bella Boutique over 2 years ago. So this challenge was perfect. Use up that old stuff to make room for new. Lol ;)

Be sure to pop over to the Krafty Girl challenge blog to see what that rest of the gals came up with this week.

Have a Happy Easter, and a wonderful long weekend.

KKS Challenge #74 - Krafty Bingo

It's Day Three of Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Sneak Peeks...and a challenge.

Today's Kraftin Kimmie challenge is a Krafty bingo...I was beyond confused at first but when I met Tara who is incredibly sweet, she explained it to me and then it made sense. I thought we had to choose a row and then make a card with the embellies in that a row. But the challenge is just to choose a row and then put the anywhere on your card...doesn't have to be in a row. Duh me!! Totally makes sense now.
So here's the sketch.
And here are two cards I made following the sketch.
Annie Rodrigue has done it again with her incredible artistic talent creating five beautiful fairies
It was hard to choose but for my first card I used Isabelle and I chose the diagonal row, bottom left to top right. Punches, ribbon, and gems.

For my second card I used Tallulahbelle and I used the left parallel row on the Bingo card. Flowers, Glitter, and Diecuts.

I absolutely love all of these fairies. I think there easily one of my favourite releases. Love them!!!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the challenge blog to see more of these cuties.
Plus release day is Tomorrow!! :)

Kraftin Kimmie Sneak Peeks Day two...

Welcome back to Day Two of Kraftin Kimmie's sneak peeks. Today we're featuring Steven Leary's images. I played with two because it was just too hard to choose only one. So my first card is with Astronaut Andy. Isn't he cute. I coloured him with my copics and inked around the image before taking it out of the circle nestabilitie. I also added some crystal lacquer to his helmet to make it look all glossy, probably hard to tell in the picture though. The sentiment that I used is from Kimmie's Sassy sentiments. On one of my shopping trips I found the perfect paper for Andy ...but I can't find a piece that says what line it is from :( Sorry about that, my desk is a tad messy at the moment. It could be in there somewhere.  Actually the ribbon matches it sooo...I just went and looked and it says American Crafts. So I think the paper is probably the same. Phew, I feel better now. lol

Anyway... ;)

My second card today is Dancing Dylan, named after my lil girl. :)  She's very much a girly girl. Has long, long hair. Looooves to dress up, sing, dance and craft. Just like mommy. Hee hee. Craft that is. lol
I found this paper in a pack at Lensmills. I know!! They sometimes actually have some pretty cool stuff. But it's always a hit or a miss. I also got the silver sparkly paper there, or maybe it was the dollar store...either way it was also a steal. I used my Spellbinder Lacey circles for the image and Spellbinders Fancy tags for the sentiment. Which is from the Kimmie's Fairy Sentiments.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and be sure to check out the challenge blog to see more Krafty Girls Sneak Peeks.

KKS Sneak peaks day one.

Hi there and welcome to our first day of Kraftin Kimmie stamps sneak peeks. Today were starting our peeks with Krafty Quotes #3. I chose to use the the Eleanor Roosevelt quote. I used two sets of my spellbinders and added a few flowers and some little gems that I got from the dollar store. I also added a few butterflies using my Martha Stewart bunch.
There are three other quotes in the Krafty Quotes #3 set. Want to see more...of course you do, so hop on over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of the Krafty Girls cards.

Have a great day and be sure to come back tomorrow to see some more sneak peeks.

KKS Challenge #73

Welcome to this weeks Kraftin Kimmie challenge. This week's challenge is to follow this sketch.
And this is what I came up with...

I love this stamp and had not yet had the chance to play with the Angry Ballerina, even though she doesn't look like she wants to play. lol
The patterned paper is some old stuff that I have been hoarding but I finally decided it was time to use it. I love, love, love pink and brown together. One of my all time fav's.
Anyhoo, I used my copics to colour her and inked around the edges of my nestie with some pixie dust chalk ink. Added some nice wide rick rack and a flower that I made...yup I did. Using the scalloped SU punch some layering and some water...and tah dah. :)

To see more cards for this week's challenge, or if you'd like to play along check out the deets here.

KKS Challenge #72

Today's Kraftin Kimmie challenge is to use stripes on your card. I had not yet had the chance to colour up Lavinia. I love her pigtails, they look like tornadoes and the dress... I love it!
I coloured Lavinia up with my copics and added a few flowers with a jewelry spacer and a brad in the middle of it. I really like that look. I used my SU tag punch for part of the sentiment...the rest is inside. So it should say "Time passes...Friendship remains" However I forgot to take a picture of the inside, probably because I never do the inside until I know who it's for and what the occasion is. But this time I did...really.

To see more of this weeks challenge...check out the Krafty Girl challenge blog. Also we have some new Krafty guests joining us this month so please send some love their way. Welcome Amanda, Deborah, Jenny, Krista, and Tangii. All very talented and creative ladies :)
