Good morning everyone! It’s Saturday, and here at SCS, that usually means I get to share some inspiration for the weekly challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!!
This week our hostess is Sheri and her challenge is FLOWERS!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that features flowers in some way! So in the image itself, in the patterned paper, add flower diecuts or flower embellishments!! Woohoo! We love to see flowers!!
For this little card, I decided to draw in my flowers! I love this cute stamp from KKS’s “Pretty Little PIxies” set. There is actually a really cute single flower stamp that goes with this cutie, but I thought it would be fun to make it look like she was growing a whole garden, complete with a sentiment. She’s a pixie after all – and they are magical little beings, aren’t they?
We are ALSO sponsoring the challenge over on the Kit and Clowder online colouring community!!! Their challenge is WINGS so if you create a card featuring FLOWERS AND WINGS, you can enter it into BOTH challenges for DOUBLE the chances to WIN!!! How awesome is that? So, go check out the wonderful creations by our Krafty Girls and special Krafty Guests featuring this week’s challenge and head over to the Kit and Clowder online clolouring community for their challenge!! We’re sure you’ll be inspired!! Then join us, play along and you could WIN!!

Okay, here’s the thing – I love a good pun! In fact, most of my cards here at SCS have some sort of play on words. So, when I was originally thinking about this card today, I thought I would play a bit with the work “believe”, teaming it up with the bee hive for more of a “bee-lieve” card.
But once I started fussy cutting the elements from DCWV’s new Honey Chic stack, and started layering them on top of each other, the card seemed so elegant that my happy little pun just didn’t seem to fit. So, as much as I hate to say it, I bee-lieve that this card is much better pun free (but perhaps not this post about it ;)).
If you haven’t seen this great new stack yet, it’s worth a trip down to your local JoAnn to have a look! The colours are fresh and the patterns are crisp, and it is filled with lots of great journaling tags and fussy cutting delights. I have already used it three times this month (another card and a layout), and I am not finished yet! In fact, I have a fun little home decor project to show you next week!
Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you have an amazing weekend, and have some time to get crafty or to do something else that you really love! Thanks for stopping by!
As some of you might know, I am an elementary school teacher. So when it comes to primary colours, I feel like I have this one covered (and covered and covered)! So, I was pretty excited to see that the newest Tiddly Inks challenge is all about primary colours! These are often colours I use for contrast or to pull a colour palette together on a project, but red, blue and yellow are not usually my focus colours. So, working on this card was a fun challenge indeed!
For this card, I used one of the adorable images from the Buggs Mega Pack. I love the graphic nature of this cuties dress, and I thought it was a perfect fit with the bold yellow and red colours.
I hope you’ll consider joining us for this challenge. You have two weeks to complete and submit, and make sure there is at least one of the primary colours as the focus for your card. I played this one tight to the rules, but remember – it’s a challenge to help you get creative – not to scare you away, so interpret the challenge in a way that works for you!
Thanks for stopping by!
I am so excited to be a part of the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps FEBRUARY RELEASE Day hop. Earlier this week, I shared a little confession - that I am not really a cat person. Well, in that post, I also mentioned that this new set, called Feline Great, was making me a new feline fan. If that one wasn’t enough for me, this cutie certainly puts me over the edge! I just love his cute expression, and I love that this stamp could be used for all sorts of sentiments – “hang in there”, “a little birdie told me…”, etc. I think it’s a fun pairing with this centre-step card.
I hope you have a chance to hop by the cards created by the rest of the Krafty Girls! You will get to see ALL of the new images today and there really is something for everyone! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are available NOW!
So, grab a warm beverage, and enjoy the hop! Thanks for stopping by!
