Did you know that Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps hosts a challenge on Wednesday? Well, this is our first one for December, so if you didn’t know before, you do now! Wonderful Wednesdays are all about sharing to win, so come on and play!
Your submission must use at least one Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps but can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item….you name it!! It must be a NEW creation (so you can’t submit something you made last year…haha!) and you can enter every week for a chance to win and at the end of the month, we’ll draw a winner for a Kraftin’ Kimmie Prize Pack!!! What do you think…..wanna WIN??
Today, my inspiration comes from a stamp called “Cuddle Up and Keep Warm“. I wanted a winter themed card that could double as a Christmas card, so I grabbed some of my DCWV Jolly Whimsy paper and coloured up this cutie to match (with a little colour selection help from my four year old – apparently red and pink striped mugs are all the rage)! This stamp just makes me want to curl up on the couch with a hot bevie, a warm blanket and a good book…in fact, I think I’ll wrap this up so I can do just that!
I hope you’ll consider playing along! Thanks for stopping by!
It’s December! Can you believe it? Christmas is just around the corner! I have a few more Christmas cards to get out there, so this weeks Tiddly Inks Christmas challenge is perfect timing!
Today, I coloured up a cute digi called “Jill – Spirit of Christmas”. I love these two cuties! I decided to use DCWV’s Jolly Wimsy stack for the card base because there were all sorts of non-traditional colours to play with. I just thought these two little gals needed a bright and colourful.
If you are in need of a little holiday card inspiration, or just love looking at all things Christmas, make sure you stop by the challenge blog today, because the Tiddly Inks team has outdone themselves! I love the variety of styles in this group of ladies – there really is something for everyone. So stop by, have a look at the cards, and then join us for this last challenge before the holidays! We love seeing your work!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Remember last week I told you that I really need to get caught up on my Christmas scrapbooking? Well, I am still working on it, so I have another project to show you today!
This 12×12 layout was created with a stack called “Christmas Memories” from DCWV – kind of appropriate, don’t you think? The pictures were all from Christmas baking last year with my mom (the girls’ Oma), and I was inspired by one of the pieces of patterned paper in the stack that looks like a bunch of receipes stacked one on top of the other. I couldn’t narrow down my photo choices (what else is new), so I decided to create a pocket by fussy cutting one of the recipe card shapes from the paper, and then simply sealing it up on the sides and at the bottom.
The tag that is also inside the pocket will eventually hold the recipe for the cookies that my mom was making with the girls that day. I haven’t written it out yet because I am hoping maybe my mom will write it out so it can be in her handwriting too!
There is a great set of numbers in this stack too, and although they would be perfect for a Christmas Countdown layout or project, I also thought it would be fun to use it for my page title – 3 Dozen. I simply cut out the number and then added a few small adhesive pearls and adhered it with foam squares for a bit more dimension.
Well, that’s it for me! I am actually going to go and see if I can get a few more pages finished off before the little gals wake up. Thanks for stopping by!
It’s time for some challenge fun with Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!!!
This week our hostess is STEPHANIE !! And her challenge is EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp that features ….well, anything you might do everyday!!!
Now, I know this little pig and card might seem like a bit of a stretch for this challenge, but I just think that sending love should be more of a regular activity. The pig is actually from the “Love is the Air Set” and this paper is MME My Girl. The image is coloured with Copics, and you’ll even see a bit of crochet ribbon on there from May Arts!
So, that’s it for my challenge inspiration for today, but we also have some other fun things going on at KKS, including our 12 Days of Krafty Kreations.
