White Rabbit

Welcome back to the previews for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and today is also the start of a new challenge! The challenge this week is a pretty fun sketch so make sure you head on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie blog for the sketch and all the inspriation from the other design team members - this is one day you won't want to miss!

Today we are featuring images from Annie Rodrigue which features new characters in an Alice in Wonderland theme! Don't forget about leaving a comment on the Kraftin' Kimmie blog for a chance to win today's prize - there will be TWO winners and each get three of Annie's new stamps that were featured today. How awesome is that!

For my card I chose to use the White Rabbit and give him some color... the Andy Warhol style! I actually started with six panels becuase I had forgotten about the sketch but the last two were easily removed and really helped to brighten up the mix too. Believe it or not, the colors were actually hard to select so I had a few Andy Warhol images on my computer and taking inspiration from them.

Hope you enjoyed the inspriation and remember to come back tomorow for a Kraftin' Kimmie New Release Hop! :D Cao!

Welcome back to the next preview for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Today we're featuring images from Emilie Goulet and I've chosen to use Panda. I colored this cute little guy lime green as a direct inspiration from packing tape I found at the store! LOL Yes, those black strips in the back with green and white skulls is packing tape - how cool is that?!

The rest of the card was created with a modpodge of items on a white card backing. I was having so much fun adding embellishment that I didn't pay attention to the orientation of the card backing.... so what happened? It's completely upside down! LOL None the less, hope you enjoyed it. ;D

Make sure you head on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie blog for more inspiration from the DT and to leave a comment for a chance to win today's prize! TWO lucky winners will receive the complete set of Emilie's stamps that were featured today. Then come back tomorrow for another chance to win some new release stamps and the next Kraftin' Kimmie challenge!

Girl with Flower and Girl on Bench

It's the December Krafty Peeks from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps starting today with images featured from the artist Cheryl Alger! This month's stamps by Cheryl come as a set of three images with five coordinating sentiments called Sugar and Spice and I've used two of them on my project today!

For my project today I created a journal page featuring two images from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Girl with Flower and Girl on Bench. I paied these two cuties with the Rose Garden background stamp from Make it Crafty. Then I used a floral designer paper to set the scene for a beautiful flower garden.

The rest of the project was covered with a little ribbon, more decorative paper, flowers and gems. At the time it didn't feel like I was putting everything on there but I suppose I did. ;D Except for that kitchen sink, of course!

The sky in the background was created by holding the tip steady and lightly while drawing long lines across the white part. The BG0000 and BG000 were light enough that I didn't have to wory about the image and just drew right through it so I didn't have to start and stop in the middle where it would be the most visable. After drawing the lines in one direction and rotated the page and did it again in the other direction.

Each day there is a give away stamp to random commenters so make sure you head on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie blog for the rest of the inspiration from the DT and to leaver you comment for a chance to win. Today's lucky winner will receive a set of Cheryl's images - whohoo! We'll have two more days of previews then on Sunday is the Krafty Hop that you don't want to miss. ;D

Summer Monkey

Welcome to another challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and this time our theme is Buttons & Ribbon. I took this opportunity to create a boys card as I am plum out of those! I've seen meters on other blogs that count down how many holiday cards have been met and I should find one and use it for by cards... so this would be one down and only 24 more to go!! Not bad... that would be two a month.

For my card I used Summer Monkey from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Then for the ribbon I used some burlap ribbon I had in the cupboard and lastly the buttons are a mixture of buttons and brads made out of corduroy; both are great for adding texture to the card. The rest of the card was kept simple and I was lucky to find some colorful, yet suitable, decorative paper for the theme. Thanks for stopping by. ;D
