CC Designs August Preview Day 1 and a BIG Announcement!

 
Hello!  So... I have some HUGE news to share with you guys!  I have been asked to be on the Design Team for CC Designs! I'm am so excited and honored to be on this team and I have been dying to share this news with you guys for the last month!  Sooo... that means I'll be sharing my CC Designs creations with you guys and today I'm starting with a preview from the new August Release so without further adieu, here's my card-
 
 
This adorable set is called Meow-lloween and features 5 cute kitties all dressed up in Halloween costumes!  It also includes several sentiments that coordinate with these festive felines.  For my card, I decided to feature 3 of these cuties.  First, I chose my patterned paper which was some old 12X12 Halloween paper I had in my stash.  Then, I colored the cats to match and added some pleated ribbon.  I decided to keep this card pretty simple since I had several stamped images I wanted to feature. So I punched the patterned paper into little flags and added a sentiment at the top.  I also used one of the new CC Designs Die sets for the stitched rectangle.   
 
Here's a side view:
 
 
And a look at the inside:

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Green



Hello!  It's time for another Saturday challenge at at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! This week's challenge is to use the color GREEN! 

For my inspiration card!  I decided to use the adorable #allstar set!  I've been wanting to use these cuties for a while and this Green Challenge was the perfect excuse!  I chose this adorable Doodlebug paper and colored my image to match, paying special attention to the green!  To create the image, I first stamped the football player, masked it, and then stamped the cute little cheerleader.  Then I cut the image out with the Scan N Cut 2.  I added a few enamel dots and cut the football embellishment from the paper pad.

Little Gnome

 
Hello!  Just wanted to share a simple little card I made using the MFT You Gnome Me set.  I've actually had this set for quite some time, but just hadn't used it.  I love gnomes so when I saw this set, I just knew I had to HAVE it!  It's just so darn cute! 
 
 
I wanted to keep my card pretty simple so I chose some cute garden paper, colored my little gnome to match, and added some little flags.

Kraftin Kimmie Release Sneak Peek Day #4: Unicorns & Rainbows



 
 
Hello!  Welcome back to my blog.  Not only do I have another fabulous stamp set to share with you, it's also challenge day!  
 
Today I am previewing a super magical new set of images and sentiments by artist, Becky Pearce!   This new 4x6 clear set is called UNICORNS & RAINBOWS!!! And it's absolutely adorable! 

There are four beautiful unicorns plus a castle and a rainbow plus some stars AND SIX coordinating sentiments that you can mix and match to create amazing combinations! So there's a total of FIFTEEN dreamy stamps!

For my card, I found some super bright and colorful paper.  Then I decided I wanted to use all of these little cuties so I masked them, colored them up, and then cut out the image with my Scan N Cut 2.  I wanted to created the look of a big fluffy cloud, but I only had small cloud die cuts so I just layered them to create the desired effect.  Then I added a cute little doily, some pleated ribbon, and a few enamel dots.

Kraftin Kimmie Release Sneak Peek Day #3: Make Your Own Magic

 
 
Are you loving all the MAGIC so far?  Well, today does not disappoint.  
 
Today I am sharing a sweet set by artist, Cheryl Grant! It features our fave kiddos Lulu, Lexi and their little puppy and they're having so much fun with their spells and wands!!!

The set is called MAKE YOUR OWN MAGIC! There are three main images plus FIVE coordinating sentiments! Aren't they adorable!!!

For my card,  I decided to choose some adorable paper that featured potion vials.  Then I colored my image to match.  I really wanted to create a MAGICAL effect so I added a ton of dots with my Copics and glitter swirls all around this two cuties.  I also added some star rhinestones.  Then I topped it off with some baker's twine and a cute jar of eyeballs (a necessity for any spell).

Kraftin Kimmie Release Sneak Peek Day #2: Book Dragon



 
 
Are you ready for another amazing day of July krafty peeks!? As an English teacher, this stamp is near and dear to my heart.  It's just so cute!!! I'm so excited to share the new set by artist Emilie Goulet called BOOK DRAGON!!

This 3x4 clear stamp set features a gorgeous and magical dragon image PLUS four awesome coordinating sentiments!!! Think of all the opportunities for texture colouring on this fabby guy! He's such fun!

 For my card, I decided to color my dragon lime green.  I chose some "school" related paper and colored my little dragon to match with Copic markers.  Then I die cut a spiral edge border and added some embellishments including some stitched stars.  I really like how it turned out.  This little guy is such a cutie!
