Things are looking up!

Sloth-fullOkay, here’s the thing – I have a lot of stamps.  In fact, it’s probably not a good idea to ask me how many because if I had to tell you, I would also have to kill you! ;)  But there are some of those many stamps that I want to go back to over and over again – and the new set of sloths from Kraftin’ Kimmie called Wanna Hang are on that list! I could colour these cuties over and over and over again! I coloured this cutie up with my Copics (warm greys work great for the fur if you are going for a “realistic” colour) and then teamed him op with some bright and fun paper from Doodlebug.

Sloth-closeupSince it is Wednesday, it is challenge time over at Kraftin’ Kimmie, and the great thing about Wednesday challenges is that the theme is always – Anything Goes!  Having said that, your submission must use at least one Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp 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 and you can enter on the blog until Tuesday, April 8th!! 

So, grab that set of stamps that you just love and get krafty!  I can’;t wait to see what you create!

Spring has sprung…sort of!

I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are, but spring has yet to rear it’s beautiful face around here.  So, even if Mother Nature won’t cooperate, the Tiddly Ink Design team is set to inspire you with all sorts of spring creations for this week’s challenge – #130 – Celebrate Spring!



Flower-Girl-2-closeupI decided to colour up Faythe – Flower Girl Extraordinaire, one of the newest releases over at Tiddly Inks. I used my trusty Copics, and worked with some nice warm browns for her skin and hair (E23, E25, E39 for her skin and E34, E25, E39 and E79 for her hair).  The curly hair is a lot of fun to colour – in fact, if you are looking for a quick tutorial, I have one here at SCS – not with this stamp, but you will get the same effect. You’ll be amazed how easy it is!

So, even if the flowers are not starting to bloom where you are, it’s time to think spring and join us for the challenge.  You have two weeks to create and link up - I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Has Sprung!


It’s Saturday challenge time at  Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and this week, I get to be the hostess!

Let's-chat-closeupThis week our challenge is SPRING HAS SPRUNG, so create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that features spring in some way.  I decided to work with a great stamp from the new Down on the Farm 2 set.  Lulu looks so cute sitting on that fence, and what says spring more than bunnies and chicks?!  With some bright paper from Doodlebug, this card may not directly say “Spring” but I think it has a bunch of fun elements from this time of year (or what this time of year should have anyway)! ;)

Now, don’t forget that all the Krafty Girls and Guests have inspiration for you for this challenge, so grab a beverage and pop by the blog!

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great weekend!

You put the “Specs” in Special!


Blog-hopIt’s spring blog hop time at Chi Chi Memories! All the designers have created awesome projects using the newest release, and you won’t believe how cute these images are! I decided to work with a stamp that is close to my heart – Cute in Glasses.  As the mom of a four year old who has worn glasses since she was two, I am always on the look out for images of cute little gals in specs doing their “thing” – you know, not the nerd stereo-type, just regular fun.  This cutie fits the bill perfectly and I can’t wait to share her with my daughter!

This image was coloured with Copics to match this cute piece of Doodlebug paper that I found in my scraps.  I actually had a version of this card all done up, but I wasn’t happy with the colours, so it didn’t make the cut!  I’m glad I decided to try again – this card makes me smile!
