CC Designs February Release Preview Day #3

 
Hello!  Today, I'm here to share an adorable little Leprechaun with you guys!  This little cutie is part of the New February Release for CC Designs!  I just love him!  He looks so happy with his pot of gold and little green suit!  Adorable!!! 
 
 
For my card, I chose some oh-so-cute patterned paper from Doodlebug and colored my image to match.  I then stamped a sweet little sentiment from the New Lucky Rainbow Sentiments Set.  Then I die cut it using the Shapers 1 Die.  I layered that on top of a stitched label die and popped it up using some foam tape.  Then I added a couple of die cut clouds, a little rainbow, and some enamel dots.

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge - White

 
 
 
Hello! It's time for another Saturday Challenge at Kraftin Kimmie! This week's theme is WHITE!
 
 
 
For my card, I chose the adorable Eskimo Pals Stamp Set.  I thought it would fit the challenge perfectly since the little polar bear is obviously white. :)  So I colored my image in neutral tones and tried to incorporate as much white as possible.  The, I added a strip of patterned paper to the bottom, some linen thread and matted it on red cardstock.  I felt it needed at least a little color. lol!  then I added some white die cut snowflakes and stamped my sentiment in the corner.

SugarPea Designs Let's Fiesta! and Guest Designer Contest

Hello!  Today, I'm sharing a super fun card using Let's Fiesta from SugarPea Designs!  I just love this little guy.  He looks like he's having so much fun!  For this card, I chose some bright Southwestern papers and colored my image to match using Copic markers.  Then I layered several of the papers in the background, cut my image into a rectangle and layered it on top of a scalloped die cut.  I placed a strip of diamond print at the bottom of the image and topped it off with a cute little tag and button.  Then I stamped my image on a die cut cloud and added a little heart underneath.  I popped it up using foam tape to add some dimension.  And there you have it, a festive little birthday card!

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Square Card


Hello there Krafty Peeps!  I'm hosting this week's challenge: SQUARE CARD!  Personally, square cards are my absolute favorite because I think they fit most stamps perfectly!  So, I thought I would challenge you guys to create your own square cards.  For my inspiration card, I chose the oh-so-adorable You're Nifty stamp set.  I just love how cute these two are and with Valentine's Day just around they corner, I thought they would be perfect.  I tried to keep things pretty simple with this one by keeping my image as the main focus with just a touch of patterned paper and enamel dots.

Kraftin Kimmie January Rlease and Blog Hop


 
Hello!  Today, I'm back sharing another card using the Fabulous Party Pearl!  I just love how fun and 'girly' she is!  For my card, I tried to keep things clean and simple.  I stamped my image on a clean white piece of cardstock and chose some dainty patterned papers that I thought matched the image.  I colored my stamp in the same colors and punched two flags for the top left corner.  I stamped my image at the bottom with navy ink and a spiral paperclip finished it off.

ALL of the new stamp sets you've been seeing all week will be releasing THIS AFTERNOON after the LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY! I hope you can join us for all the fun, beautiful cards, giveaways and more!
Today we are sharing a quick little sentiment set that I put together! Thank you sentiments are something we all need throughout the year but especially after the holidays with all those thank you cards to go out! I used a combined a fun selection of fonts for several of the sentiments AND I made a larger Thank You that can be used in combination with any of the smaller lines below to suit your need! I hope you love the new SINCERE THANKS set!
The set is 4x4 and comes with a total of THIRTEEN stamps for an unlimited number of designs as a focal point of your creations or in addition to a coloured image!
 
 
For my project, I decided to make a set of tags. I chose some beautiful "girly" paper and die cut it into tags using the MFT Tag Builder set.  Then I stamped the large "thank you" stamp in the flag and popped it in the middle of each tag. To finish them off, I chose a different coordinating sentiment and stamped it at the bottom of each tag.  I just love how these turned out and think they would be adorable attached to a little gift.
