Day 12 Krafty Khristmas!

Welcome to Day 12 of Krafty Khristmas from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!

I really had fun creating this card with Buddy Bears stamp set! 

I started out with Bristol Smooth Cardstock and inked up the background using chipped sapphire and salty ocean distress inks. Then using a mini cloud stencil, I added the clouds with some more chipped sapphire distress ink. I love the tone on tone look! I mixed some Perfect Pearls with water and splattered that onto my background and also some white paint. 


I stamped a sentiment from the Buddy Bears stamp set onto Black cardstock with Wow embossing ink and added Lawn Fawn white embossing powder. Then heat set with my heat tool. I added a strip of vellum behind the black cardstock and added to my distress panel. 


For some dimension, I added my distressed background to some craft and added this to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardbase. 

This adorable bear is from the Buddy Bears stamp set from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. I stamped my image onto Neenah White cardstock with Simon Says Black Ink and colored with my copic markers. Then I cut out the image with my Scan n Cut machine and added to my card. 

Hope you enjoyed today's inspiration! Tone on tone colors are so magical looking!

12 Days of Khristmas with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!

I hope you've been following along with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and the 12 Days of Khristmas! There have been some amazing deals going on each day! Today I'm showcasing the ever adorable Reindeer Games stamp set and did something completely different with it.

What's really cool ... the ENTIRE October release is 30% but for today only and while supplies last. If a stamp set is sold out, be sure to click on the Notify Me button so you can be one of the first to know when it's back in stock. 

I've been diving back into scrapbooking but I still love to color and create with all the fun craft supplies. So I'm combining both worlds. I used the Reindeer Games stamp set in one of album pages. I'm working on some pocket pages and these are the perfect size.

I colored up some of the reindeer on Neenah white cardstock with my copic markers. Then cut them out with my Scan n Cut. I was able to add them to some of my pocket cards. I still have pictures to add but I wanted to have the layout ready to go when I get to my PILES of pictures.






Most of these cards are from a pack I bought a few years ago that are double sided. The bottom card "Merry Christmas 2017" is actually a printable I got from CZDesign.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope this inspired you to get the most out of your crafty supplies!


C.C. Designs Release

It's time ! It's Time! The C.C. Designs December Release is now live!!! This is such a fantastic release you don't want to miss it!

I have a few things to share today so please keep reading! First I have some more inspiration for you with a card I created.

I stamped my images from the Wintertime set onto Neenah white cardstock and colored with copic markers. Then I used the coordinating die to cut them out.  I also colored and die cut some trees and a park bench from the Winter Scene Stamp/Die set. I also prepped my background by cutting a stitched hillside with the Winter Borders Die.

For my sky, I ink blended Wilted Violet and Seedless preserve distress oxide inks (which are also sold at C.C. Designs!) I spritzed with some water from my Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer and dabbed off with a paper towel. I masked off part of the Hillside Border that I did cut and added some Salty Ocean distress oxide.


Next I started to layer my card. I added the stitched hillside on top of the sky background, tucking in some trees behind and ontop of the hill. I adhered this panel to some craft foam and then to a 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" cardbase. I added my characters throughout the card to create a little winter scene. The sentiment is also from the Winter time stamp set which I stamped onto a stitched banner from the Make a Card Scene #17.

I put a finishing touch on to my trees by using some Wink of Stella clear which its so sparkly in person - hard to capture on camera. 

I have TWO videos for you today. One is the release video taking a closer look at the new items. The second video is a process video for my card. I apologize there is no voice on it but I hope it's still helpful.

Critters Challenge - Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Hello everyone! Welcome to another challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! Today's challenge is about critters and of course I had to use the fox from the new Furry Holiday Wishes stamp set! I love love these critters!!! 

I colored up the fox using neenah white cardstock and my copic markers. Then cut the fox out with my Scan n cut machine.  For the front panel, I cut a circle using a stitched circle die and adhered acetate behind it. I stamped my sentiment on the front which is also from the Furry Holiday Critters stamp set. I love the different fonts on it and how you can mix and match the sentiment.


Next, I added foam tape around my window on the back of the front panel. A trick I picked up is to first double up the foam laying one on top of the other. Then peel off the backing so it's sticky on both sides. This allows you to go around the circle so easily. I dusted my edges and the acetate with my anti static powder tool so the glitter moves around better.

Then, I attached this fun patterned paper to my front card panel. I love the snowflakes are on red inside of a blue color- nice change up. Then I attached this panel to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" red cardbase. I added my cut out fox and some glitter snowflakes to the front.

C.C. Designs December Release Preview

Hi Everyone! It's that special time again - time for previews from C.C. Designs!! I have something a little different and out of the box to share today. I love coloring and I adore the stamps/dies from C.C. Designs. There are times I make cards and I don't want to give the away because of the time and detail put into them haha... I want to be able to appreciate my own work.

So.... I decided to incorporate my love for stamping with ..... scrapbooking (which I'm way behind on)

Now for the most part I'm going to create just like I would a card except size it to what I need. In this card my card panel size is 3" x 4" . I started out with stamping and coloring my images from the new Wintertime set and then die cut them out with .... a matching die set!! Yes C.C. Designs has matching dies!!! and ...... the stamp sets are CLEAR!!! 


I used the NEW Winter Borders Die to create a hill with glitter cardstock and look at that cute tiny banner for my sentiment which I made using the NEW Make a Card Scene #17. Seriously, this release is fabulous and I'm over the moon excited about these new products.


I also add some icicles to the top of this insert using the NEW Winter Borders die and more glitter cardstock. 


I know this is totally out of my element of what I usually post but I hope it gives you some ideas on how you can incorporate stamping into your scrapbooks. You'll be seeing more of this from me but even if you don't scrapbook, you can still use the base idea for a card. 

Be sure to check out more previews on the C.C. Designs blog - you DO NOT want to miss what they have in store! Release goes LIVE on Saturday at 11am EST!! 

Java Merry Christmas

Hi everyone! I'm super excited to be sharing my card today as a guest on Simon Says Stamp blog using products from Pink & Main. They have such beautiful papers and stamps that are sure to make their way into your shopping cart!

For my card today, I'm using a variety of products from Pink & Main and Simon Says Stamp. I start out by using the Christmas Mugs stamp set from Pink & Main and stamping then onto Neenah white cardstock with Simon Says Stamp black ink which is a copic friendly ink. Then I color them with my copic markers to coordinate with the Frosty paper pack from Pink & Main. I use the coordinating die set to cute out my mugs. 


I prepare my cardbase by using the Rounded Stitched Rectangle die from Pink & Main and Neenah white cardstock. Next, I use one size smaller of the Rounded Stitched Rectangle die and cut from a piece of snowflake pattern paper from the beautiful Frosty Paper pack from Pink & Main. I also cut out a smaller rectangle from white cardstock and popped that up with craft foam in the middle of my card.


I added my cut out mugs to the middle panel and popped up the center one with foam squares so they didn't all blend into eachother. This fun sentiment is also from the Christmas Mugs stamp set stamped in Simon Says Black ink. I couldn't resist adding a few snowflakes using the Silver & White glitter cardstock from Simon Says Stamp with their Stitched Snowflakes die.  To finish off the card, I used some of the Ice Cube Mix Jewels from Lucy's Cards.

I hope you enjoyed today's card. I adore these papers and Christmas mugs and are sure to be a favorite in your collection too!



Christmas Window - Pink & Main

Welcome!! Today's card is sharing a fabulous stamp and die set from Pink & Main! 

It's called Christmas Window and you can find all the supplies listed down below.

I hadn't made a shaker card in a while and I thought this set would be perfect for it! I stamped my image onto Neenah white cardstock and colored with copic markers. Next, I used a piece of Neenah cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and cut out a window using the coordinating window die. Then I attached a piece of acetate cardstock to the backside using double sided adhesive.


I stamped the sentiment also found on the Christmas Window stamp set, under the die cut window using Versafine Ink and heat embossing with WOW Clear Embossing powder. I adde some chunky glitter on top of my colored image. I added one layer of foam tape around the window of my card panel.


I lined up the window die cut with my colored image and attached to the colored panel. In hindsight, I could have added more glitter but I wasn't going to try and redo it haha! I attached my shaker panel to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardbase and added a bow from the small bow die with whit glitter cardstock.

I think this came out fabulous! I hope it inspires you!
