Rachel Little Angel

Rachel Little Angel (1)

Afternoon all….me again!! It’s time for a new challenge at Elisabeth Bell’s World Challenge and lucky old me gets to play along as a Guest Digi Bell. Our theme this time around is Lace and Pearls.

I’ve used Rachel Little Angel and made a reasonably CAS birthday card:

Bit of a dodgy photo on this one. I’ve managed to pick up the shimmer on her wings but the four smaller pearls look a right odd colour….I swear they match in real life!!!

Supplies:

  • Colouring Medium: Copics
  • DP: Patterned Vellum (make unknown)
  • Card: Pink and White Card and Copic X-Press It Blending Card
  • Stamps: Personal Impressions Double Sayings Stamp Set
  • Dies & Punches: EK Large Border Punch
  • Embellishments: Lace, Ribbon, Pearls and a Wink of Stella Pen

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lilybelle

Lilybelle (4)

Afternoon all! It’s time for another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and I’m joining in as a Krafty Guest….whoop whoop I’m having so much Krafty fun!!  This week's challenge is for Birthdays but no Pink or Blue on your Krafty Kreation! And if you thought it couldn’t get any better than playing with your Krafty Stash, think again as there is the chance to WIN a $10 gift card to the Kraftin' Kimmie shop.

This was a good challenge to push me out of my comfort zone as one of my go to colours is pink, but I searched my patterned papers until I found something I liked, coloured up the magical ‘Lilybelle’ to match (using the no-lines technique) and here is my card:

Lilybelle (6) 

I wasn’t sure this card was going to come together. The colouring was quite tricky as I’m new to Copics and for oranges and greens don’t really have any tried and tested go to colour combos, but having said that I am really pleased with the final card.

Supplies:

  • Image: Lilybelle from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
  • Sentiment: Make a Wish from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
  • Colouring Medium: Copics
  • DP: My Minds Eye (very old…will see if I can find the name!)
  • Card: Kraft card, Black card and Copic X-Press It Blending Card
  • Dies & Punches: X-Cut Square Punch and Small Scalloped Border Punch
  • Embellishments: Paper flowers, Pearls and glitter glue

If you are in need of a bit more Krafty Stash there are loads of fabulous NEW goodies in the Krafty Store and the Frugal Friday goodies are listed here. So now is as good as time as any for a shopping trip. Make sure you take a peak at the March New Releases as well while you’re there!! Also the fabulously awesome Coffee Kits are available, the pre-orders sold out so quickly but Kimmie was able to get more goodies and make more kits. These are available now for purchase.


Now it’s your turn, create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp and be sure to use our THEME as a starting point for your creation! You have until March 27th at 11:55 pm EST to get your entries in! And don’t forget to share your makes over at Kraftin’ Kimmie's Krafty Friends Facebook Group!

Let’s Party

Julie (2)

 

Morning All…..it's Wonderful Wednesday time ( sounds a lot nicer than Happy Hump Day…lol)! And as a Krafty Guest over at Kraftin' Kimmie  I get to play along…whoot whoot. As always on Wonderful Wednesday it's ANYTHING GOES! So I hope you have some Krafty Fun with your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and play along.

There is a wonderful sketch this month, you don’t have to use it but it’s fabulous so you may want to ;-) I used it for one of my March New Release creations but I just had to use it again. Talking about New Releases THEY'RE HERE! The March New Release stamps are in the Krafty store and ready to find a new home!

And here is my card using the fabulous Julie:

Julie (3)

I stuck very rigidly to the sketch last time so this time thought I would change it up with a shaped base and instead of having gaps in between the 4 sections I used ribbon instead. Plus I got these fabulous new dies as a Mother’s day present :-) Most of the cards I have seen with them are very Frou Frou and whilst I thing they look stunning it’s not a look I find easy to achieve so this here is my CAS take on it!!

Supplies:

  • Image & Sentiment: Julie from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
  • Colouring Medium: Copics
  • DP: Papermania Spots & Stripes Festive 12x12 Paper Pack
  • Card: Blue and Yellow card and Copic X-Press It Blending Card
  • Dies & Punches: Go Kreate XXL Frilly Frames #10 Dies and X-Cut Square Punch( For the Fishtail Banners), Fiskars 3-Way Heart Corner Punch (to make the little Hearts)
  • Embellishments: Ribbon, Glitter Glue, Gems and Doodling with a fineline black pen

As well as the NEW stamps, there are MORE Coffee Kits available! The last time the kits were listed they sold out super QUICK! There are limited quantities, so get yours before they are gone!

We love having Krafty fun and want as many people as possible to play along….. so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item....anything you fancy! So hop over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Blog to see all the details and join in the fun!

Back to my decorating now….thanks for stopping by
