Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Shaped Creation

It's Saturday and that means it's time for another Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge.  This week's theme is all about shapes!  For my card, I cut my card base into a label shape.  Then I die cut my patterned paper into the same shape, only smaller.  I chose of the adorable mermaids from the Sea Jewels set, colored her up to match my patterned papers, and cut her out using my Scan N Cut 2.  Then I created a little ocean floor scene using some die cut coral and sea weed.  I stamped my sentiment and added my image using foam tape.  There you have it, one simple, shaped mermaid card!

Kraftin Kimmie August Release Sneak Peek #1

 
 
Hello!  It's Day ONE of the Kraftin Kimmie August Sneak Peeks!  We are kicking things off with an incredible new set from artist, Cheryl Grant!
It's called HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL!!
This set is full of scene building elements to create amazing designs! Of course Lulu is the center of attention along with a fun wagon which you can fill with some of the other images like pumpkins, puppies and kitties!! So cute!

 
For my card, I decided to create a little scene.  I found some cute fall papers from Doodlebug and colored my image to match using Copic Markers.  Then I die cut a cute little tree, some clouds, and rolling hills.  I layered it all together, added my image, and popped in onto a piece of leaf patterned paper using foam tape.  I just love how it turned out.  Such a sweet little stamp set, perfect for fall!

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge: Pearls or Enamel Dots

Hello!  This week I'm hosting the Saturday Challenge at Kraftin Kimmie.  If you know me at all, I love to use enamel dots and faux pearls on my cards. So this week I thought I would challenge you to do the same!!!  So dig out those enamel dots and pearls and start creating!  

For my inspiration card, I chose the NEW Social Sally Stamp!  I just love how adorable she is texting in the park!  Too cute!  I used several patterned papers in the background and created a little park scene with some die cut grass and clouds.  Then I added some black enamel dot to finish it off and draw the eye to the main image.
