Hi, crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by to peek at the card I made for the latest challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! The theme of this week’s challenge is “Double Trouble,” which means to use two Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps on your entry (which can be a card, scrapbook page or other project)!
|Other supplies: patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye – Stella & Rose “Mabel” mini paper pad), flower accent (Basic Grey), embossing folder (Sizzix), Copic markers, ribbon, Tsukineko Brilliance ink.|
I made a change or two to the sketch for my card. I added a matching strip of patterned paper between the two purple stripes, and changed the location of the flower accent. Here’s the original sketch:
Hi, crafty pals! Thanks for stopping by for a closer look at the card I created for the latest challenge at Crafty Contagion! This time, the Divas are getting groovy with the color green!
I’ll admit, it’s not one of my favorite colors, but I had fun with this challenge! I asked Scott for some ideas using the color green, and one that he came up with was a dragon. So, I picked one of my Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps that features a dragon, and colored it up!
Here’s my card, featuring many shades of green:
Hope you’ve been inspired to create something green for our challenge! We’d love to see what you create! Before you link up, don’t forget to see what the other Divas of Team B have whipped up at the Crafty Contagion blog!
Hey there! Thanks for stopping by to see what I’ve made for the latest sketch challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!
Here’s my card:
|Supplies: image and sentiment stamps (Kraftin’ Kimmie – Snow White), border punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), sheer ribbon, embossing folder (Sizzix), cardstock (Stampin’ Up!), patterned papers (floral: Basic Grey Picadilly; teal/navy polka dot: Crate Paper Farmhouse; navy blue polka dot: Bo Bunny Mamarazzi, teal/white polka dot – unsure of manufacturer), Copic markers, opaque white marker, Glossy Accents, Tsukineko Brilliance ink.|
and here’s the sketch it’s based on:
I’ve slowly been building up my Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp collection; I got this one a few months ago, but it’s the first time I’ve used her on a card!
I’ve gotten hooked on the new show Once Upon A Time, which airs Sundays on ABC. I’ve always been a fan of fairy tales! I recently started re-reading all the original Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and there are so many that I had never heard of before, or vaguely remember! I also didn’t realize how dark some of the stories are! I guess I’m used to the fun, happy Disney versions, but I enjoy going back and reading them the “old” way to see how much of the story has been changed.
Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by! After seeing all the new releases at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, I added the Coffee Crusader and Gadget Girl to my wish list! If you haven’t seen them yet, definitely check them out in the store! If you like superheroes, you’ll love this release!
Happy Wednesday and welcome back for the latest challenge at Flutter By Wednesday! Back by popular demand, this week’s challenge is open to anything with wings!
So feel free to make a card with bees, bats, birds, airplanes, dragonflies, or anything else you can think of that has wings! Normally, the challenge is limited to angels, fairies or butterflies (and we’ll go back to that requirement next week), but not this time!
Here’s my card, which is also the one I gave my dear husband for Valentine’s Day:
|Supplies: Image and sentiment stamps (Kraftin’ Kimmie – Batty Princess), paper (Basic Grey – Kissing Booth), ink (Tsukineko; Stampin’ Up – Chocolate Chip), lace (KaiserCraft), Spellbinders oval die, Sizzix embossing folder, opaque white marker, Copic markers, brads, foam tape, heart-shaped rhinestone.|
And he made me a Valentine’s Day card! It came in three parts…here they are all together:
It’s Wednesday and that means it’s also time for a new challenge at Flutter By Wednesdays! This week, we’re challenging you with a L-O-V-E recipe challenge!
So, in addition to your butterfly, fairy or angel, your entry would also include:
L = 2 or more layers
O = odd number of embellishments
V = use the color violet
E = use any color EXCEPT red
So, following that recipe, I created this card:
|Supplies: card base, sentiment stamp (Fiskars), image stamp (Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps – Angie), Spellbinders die, ribbon (American Crafts), metal butterfly accent (Making Memories), ink (Tsukineko), Copic markers, patterned paper (Basic Grey), gem brads (American Crafts).|
Thanks to everyone who fluttered along with us last week, and I hope you’re able to join us for this week’s challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Saturday and Happy New Year’s Eve! I’d like to share my final card as a member of the Unscripted Sketches design team…I’m transitioning to a new opportunity in 2012!
After being a member of the team for over a year, I thought it was a good time to step aside and create a spot for a new designer to step in and become a part of the team!
Unscripted Sketches was the first design team that I joined, and I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to create with the fabulous ladies on the team! I wish each of them the best, and I plan to play along with Unscripted Sketches again soon, and I hope you’ll find time to play along, too!
Here’s my card! I took the picture when we were traveling for Christmas…since I didn’t have my light box with me, I had to improvise!
|Supplies: card base, patterned paper (Basic Grey – Out of Print), image and sentiment stamps (Priscilla – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps), embossing folder (Sizzix), adhesive gems (aMuse Studio), ink (Tsukineko Brilliance), Copic markers.|
Happy Saturday! Hope all of you in the U.S. are having a safe and happy Veteran’s Day weekend!
|Supplies: card base, Copic markers, ink (Tsukineko Brilliance – Graphite Black), gingham paper (aMuse Studio), card stock (Stampin’ Up!), polka dot paper (scrap from my stash), lace (KaiserCraft).|
|Supplies: card base, Copic markers, cardstock (Stampin’ Up!), lace trim (KaiserCraft), adhesive pearls, embossing folder (Sizzix), Spellbinders Lacey Circles & Small Circles dies, foam tape, patterned paper (aMuse), sentiment, accent & image stamp (Abigail Apple, Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps)|
Happy Saturday and welcome back for another Unscripted Sketches challenge!
Here’s my card! I rotated the sketch to the side. Instead of a large title, I used a strip of navy patterned paper. I arranged the image of the magical items and the sentiment in the place of the two rectangles on the sketch, and put my main image in the larger open area.
|Supplies: image and sentiment stamps (Magical Mathilda, Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps), Copic markers, ink (Tsukineko Brilliance – Graphite Black), patterned papers (Bo Bunny), foam squares, gold gel pen, Star Dust Stickles, card base.|
