We HAIR you did something nice…

10444009_10152447028921014_6995170450824411293_nHappy hump day!!  It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for another Wonderful Wednesday challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps!  As always….it’s ANYTHING GOES, so find your favourite Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and get kreating!

Yesterday, my girls received a couple of beautiful princess dress-up hand-me-downs from a colleague, so I decided it would be fun to make some themed thank-you cards.  So my daughters and I got out our Once Upon a Time 3 and Once Upon a Time 4 sets (the dresses we Rapunzel and Cinderella themed), and we got krafty!


For this card, I used some fun papers from American Crafts, and some pretty velvet and crochet ribbon from May Arts.

WW-June-11-closeupI coloured up Rapunzel with Copics, using some BVs for the purple on the dress (BV000, BV02, BV04) and the R81/R83/R85 for the pink. I also used my Sakura markers for the sentiment.  I seem to be in a bit of “hand lettering” kick right now – can you tell?

Okay, now back to the challenge – 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 this post until June 17th!! At the end of the month, one winner will be chosen from all the submissions that month and will receive a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps prize pack!!! So if there are four Wednesdays, you have FOUR chances to WIN!! What do you think…..wanna WIN?? Let’s see your krafty stuff!!

Don’t forget to take a look at all the beautiful inspiration from the Krafty Girls for today’s challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!


A Pastel Challenge

You would think that with two little gals in my house, I would be all about pastel colours!  But the truth of the matter is that when I colour images, I tend to gravitate
towards the bright and bold!  So it is pretty safe to say that the newest challenge at Tiddly Inks (Pastels) was, well, a bit of a challenge for me! ;)


Pastel-closeupI decided to work with this cute image called Wryn -Sunny Day.  It is a newer release at the Tiddly Inks store, but I hadn’t yet had the chance to colour her up!  I worked with my R81/R83/R85/R89 combination for herflower head piece, and my trust BG11/BG13/BG15/BG18 combination for her dress.  I actually usually colour up an image to match some paper I have in mind for the card base, but this time, coloured first!  I think the cute Kaisercraft paper if a great fit, and probably adds that extra “pastel” feel to the card!

I hope you’ll consider joining us for this fun challenge! You have two weeks to create a little something new featuring a Tiddly Inks design and a pastel-theme of some sort!  We always love to see you work, and you could win $6.00 worth of Tiddly Ink images!

Well, that’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!


Tuesday Challenge Time with Tiddly Inks


Good morning everyone!  It’s Tuesday, and that means it challenge time at Tiddly Inks (well, actually, it’s every second Tuesday ;))!  The theme for this challenge is “Celebrate”, so there are lots of ways you can go with this one – birthdays, new babies, new jobs, graduation… there are so many things to celebrate!

Flower-Girl-1-closeupI decided to work with a stamp called Danni and Danny.  I love this little pair of cuties. I coloured up the image with Copics, and actually decided to keep her dress white (which is always a bit of a risk for me because I tend to overdo the grey colours).  It’s hard to tell from the photos, but I also topped up the edges with Stickles for a bit of sparkle.  I think this would make a super cute wedding card or thank-you card for a little flower girl, but I think this would make a darling baptism, communion or confirmation card too!

So, I hope you will consider joining us!  You have two weeks to do some colouring and then link up over on the challenge blog!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

She’s got wings and she knows how to use them!


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!!

IMG_0361For 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!!
