No pink… or blue?!?!

KKS no pink or blue

Oh boy, this was a tough one. Fridays challenge for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps was a birthday card with no pink or blue! I really didn’t think this challenge would be as hard as it was. I coloured up the Alice in Wonderland stamp, with my copics… then realized she wears blue. No problem I made her dress purple and her hair a darker brown instead of blond.

I then went to my crafting table to realize, I really had no purple paper that worked well with the image. Okay so what other colour can I use… something out of the books perhaps. Red! Yes that’s it. Then realized I have no red flowers, haha, but lots of paper laters and a bit of burlap and I am pretty happy with this card.

The Paper Shelter Birthday

TPS Bday

Hey everyone! I was reading Papercraft inspirations magazine (Feb, 2015) the other day and in it I found Jan’s blog, she makes such wonderful projects. Then continuing on with my discoveries it lead me to The Paper Shelter, going through a bunch of their images and things I fell in love! So I bought a couple, then carried on to their blog where I found out they are having a DT call. So I figured with my new found joy with this companies digi stamps, I would throw my hat in the ring.

I printed Acrobat Little Doll on copic x-press it blending card, and coloured her up with my copics. I then layed some old prima paper behind with lace, doilies, and cheese cloth. I embellished the card with Prima, and Wild Orchid crafts flowers and used a simple happy birthday sentiment.

Wheee 1

Hey everyone! This image was so much fun to colour! When I saw this set released from Kraftin’ Kimmie I really just had to have it. Probably because I always loved tire swings growing up.

I coloured this image with my copics, and used a sentiment from the same stamp set. A few layers of paper, some ribbon, twine, and enamel dots finish off this fun happy card.

It’s Party Time

Kraftin Kimmie tire

Hey everyone! Don’t you just love this image!! I do! It is called Summer Swingin’ from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps (links in the bottom of the blog post as usual). She was coloured with my Prisma Colour Pencils.

The papers I used are from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity 6×6 paper pad. I really am thrilled with the way this card came together. I find the white boarders behind all the patterns just let the papers pop and make all the different patters not to busy on top of eachother.

Its Party Time

Its Party Time 1

Hey Everyone. It’s been a few days, dealing with mom stuff, sick kid all that jazz. Anyway on to the card, This one was fun, a couple of weeks ago the Kraftin’ Kimmie facebook group had an online crop and this was my card for one of the challenges.

I coloured this image from the Birthday Buddies Stamp set from Kraftin’ Kimmie with my Copics.

Its Party Time 2

I followed a sketch that was supplied for the challenge, I actually enjoy following other peoples sketches. I have always had a sketch book (I think its like 4 of them now) that I sketch out card or layout designs in when I am upstairs and cant go down to make card at that moment. But it was fun to follow someone elses.

I dug out this paper pad from Bo Bunny (Surprise Collection) it has lots of fun bright primary colours, which is something I don’t usually work with. It turned out awesome! I matted the patterned paper on black cardstock.

Hi Kraftin’ Kimmie Krop

KKS HI 1

Hey everyone. I am back with another card from the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps online Krop. This was challenge #2, the card sketch was laid out for a square card but I do more of the A2 size so I make it work for me.

The Pretty Little Pixies stamp set has been a favorite of mine again lately (I have owned it for a long time.) I coloured the image with my Prisma Color Pencils.

KKS hi 2

 

So second part of the challenge was pink, so I added that into my colouring, as well as chose the Basic Grey Highline collection for my patterned paper. I added just a little detail using a notebook punch from one of the knock out sets from American Crafts.

The Hi sentiment is from the Gold Foil Project life kit, and enamel dots finish off the outside of the card. Inside of the card I stamped “Wishing you a day that sparkles!” from the same stamp set.

Super Pig Birthday

Parker the pig 1

Hey everyone! I have a 4 year old son, that is by every definition of the word a super hero addict, seriously its insane all the stuff he knows about them. Anyway, back on point when I saw this set from Stamping Bella how could I not get it!

Parker the pig 2

 

I kept this card very simple, I coloured the super pig with copics and used the sentiment included on the set. The papers I used were from the Bo Bunny Surprise collection. The blue ribbon across the center is from my stash, I do beleive I picked it up at Dollarama here in canada. The black cardstock is out of my scrap bin I would guess it is American Crafts left over from a layout.
