Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge #156

Welcome to this week's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge and this week our challenge is to make it Festive.  I love this elf tangled in the lights, he is called Deck the Halls. I'll have this same expression on my face when I try to get my decorations out of storage. Lol

I had the perfect paper from Echo Park's, Holly Jolly Christmas and I also used a sheet from MME, 12 days of Christmas.  I coloured the elf with my copics to match the papers and added some white ric rac ribbon that I picked up at winners. I believe it's from Martha Stewart. To complete my card  I added a trinket from the  Holiday Trinket set.

***ONE LAST THING!!!   We are having a HUGE SALE right now at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps with over 200 stamps up to 75% OFF and some stamps as low as $1.50!!  Say what??  Yep!!  We need to make room for all the new stamps coming our way, so we're retiring a lot of stamps!!  And in doing our inventory, we've also discovered a few of our previously retired stamps that people have been asking for, so we have a FEW of those up too!  Keep in mind, once they're gone, they're gone!!!  So scoop up the ones you've had your eye on or pass your wishlist over to a loved one!!  What a great way to fill your stocking!!!

I have a Lexie card to share with you and a another Dino card as well. Let's start with Lexie because I love her to pieces.

I created somewhat of a scene which would have worked very nicely with a challenge we had not so long ago that I skipped out on because I felt rather intimidated by it. But after putting together this card I'm very happy with the results. So here she is.

The paper is from MME, Happier. The clouds and grass are from MFT die cuts and the dirt path I made by tearing some brown cardstock and embossing it with a cuttlebug folder. I wasn't really sure where to put the sentiment but then thought maybe it would look alright as a sign. So there you have it.

Then we have a Dino in her egg. I really liked this fun paper and I love pink with black so I coloured her with my  my copics to match. I then used my scalloped spellbinders and inked the image with some pink chalk ink before removing it from the die.  I created the border using a ek border punch and added a bit of ribbon.

Ain't this a cute lil guy, and he could be used for many occasions.  The sentiments that come with this set are fun and witty especially this one.

Then I traced the spellbinder onto some kraft cardstock and cut it out to create the small frame around it.

KKS Challenge #154 Food/Drink

This week's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge is to use food or drink in your card. So I decided to use Agnes because my girlfriends birthday is coming up and she's a chef. So it's perfect!!

I was inspired by this cute chipboard sticker that I had picked up ages ago in the $1.50 bins at Michael's so I searched through my papers trying to find some that would match, and I found some in my odds and ends scrap pile. Added a prima flower with a Spare parts brad, some $ store pearls and some rick rack ribbon. I also added the drippy border using my MS punch.

Check out what the rest of the Krafty gals came up with as well as what's on the Frugal Friday sale.

Have a great weekend!!
