Happy Birthday Diana Blog Hop!!!

Hello!  Today is Diana's (Nana's) Birthday!  She does so much for the whole Kraftin Kimmie Community so we decided to celebrate with a blog hop!  Be sure to hop along and see all the fabulous birthday cards created by the DT. 
 
For my card, I chose an oldie but goodie.  This is from the retired rubber set called Bootylicious!  One of my favorite sets of all time!  I found some fun pirate themed papers and colored her up to match.  Then I layered it all together and added some fun die cuts.  I thought this theme seemed fitting with the new Pirates movie out!

Kraftin Kimmie May Release Preview Day #2 - Summer Aviva

 
 
Welcome to Day TWO of our May Krafty Peeks
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!...
I am thrilled to share some gorgeous artwork from one of our amazing design team members!!! Today's stamp set is from artist,
Jasmine Turandar!
It's called SUMMER AVIVA!
This sweet set features a beautiful main image with a lovely summer dress with lots of folds to colour up! And there are also two fabulous coordinating sentiments to go with her!
 
 
For my card, I decided to create something fresh and spring-like.  I chose some beautiful patterned papers and colored my image to match.  Unfortunately, my Scan N Cut 2 decided to cut off her bow, but I think she still looks beautiful without it.  I layered the papers in the background and popped my image in the center using foam tape.  A beautiful assortment of paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts finishes it all off.

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge- BUTTONS

Hello! It's time for another Saturday Challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie and this week's theme is BUTTONS!!!  Remember when buttons were the "in" thing?  Well, I haven't seen much of them lately, so I thought it would be fun to pull out some of those old buttons that are collecting dust in your craft room and try using them on a card! 

 
For my card, I chose the gorgeous Treena Twinkles!  I just love how fun she is to color up.  That hair!  I popped her one some fun patterned papers from Doodlebug and added two simple buttons to the corner.  Easy-peasy!
