Clean and Simple Guest Designer!

Hello there!  Today I have to most exciting news to share with you!  I've been selected to be a Guest Designer for Krafin' Kimmie Stamps for the month of April!  I'm over the moon!  I have been a huge fan of Krafin' Kimmie since day one and I'm so honored to share some of my creations with you this month!  To start things off, I have a fun CAS card to share with you guys.  The Weekly Saturday Challenge today is CAS (Clean and Simple).  You can find all the info about the challenge HERE on the Krafin' Kimmie blog.

We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!! You can enter as many times per month as you'd like!!

 I hope you'll join in. 

I have to tell you guys this challenge was completely out of my comfort zone.  As you know, I like to use a ton of patterned paper and die cuts on my cards, so it was difficult to hold back on this one, but I really like how it turned out in the end.  This is Sarah Shopper.  Unfortunately, she has been retired, though you may still be able to find her here and there.  Krafin' Kimmie is in the process of retiring all rubber stamps and is switching over to clear.  That means many of our favorites are being retired so if you have a few on your wishlist, be sure to visit the shop to see if there are any waiting to be snatched up! 
For this card, I just stamped my image and sentiment on Spectrum Noir blending cardstock and colored her up with Copic markers.  Then I drew a squiggly back-line boarder around the edge using my Copic Mulit-liner.  I paper-pieced some of her shopping bags, punched some fun little banner tags and scattered some sequins. 
One last note:
Have you joined the Kraftin Kimmie's Krafty Friends fb group?? It's the best place to keep up with all of the goings on as well as sharing YOUR creations and getting inspired by other Krafty Friends' creations!!!
Frugal Friday specials are UP!!!! And the new March release is in the store!!! Happy shopping 
In addition to the great Krafty Challenges & Wonderful Wednesday, each month we will post a Sketch. The sketch will last all month long and if you use it in ANY of our Challenges or WW's during that month you will get an additional chance to win a store gift card! You do NOT have to use the sketch, it's just a little extra boost for your mojo if ya need it!
