Dragon Queen

No, I am not referring to myself or an in-law or anyone else for that matter.  But I did want to introduce you to one of Kraftin’ Kimmie’s newest stamps called “Dragon Queen”. 

Aug 20 fullI decided to use this beauty for this week’s Wonderful Wednesday challenge.  I coloured her up with Copics, trying hard to stick with two tones for each colour to see if I could get the depth I was looking for just by layering those two colours.  I’m pretty happy with it – oh, and check out that fun May Arts ribbon in the background  – and guess what – it’s adhesive! So fun!

Hey There Punkin!

Kraftin Kimmie new release august (hey there, punkin')Aug 14 fullI am beyond excited to share with you the new release from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!  This time of the year is always a little bitter sweet for me – then end of summer home with my two gals (my favourite time of the year), but heading back to a job that I really enjoy.  So it’s fun to think about the things that I am thankful for, even though it is only August!

OAug 14 closeupkay, so this first set is a beauty from artist Cheryl Grant featuring three sweet images with our fave kiddos…..Lexi, Lulu and Lucas, called HEY THERE, PUNKIN’!! I chose to work with Lexi, mostly because I absolutely love the look on her face!  It was an absolute delight to colour (and I have to tell you that I have coloured it up 3 times since I received this set).  I think it will be my “go-to” stamp not only for Thanksgiving projects, but thank-you cards for the fall season!

Now, all the Krafty Girls and Guests listed below have lots of super FUN designs to show you featuring these awesome new stamps from Cheryl, and you need to pop around to see this adorable set!  Be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away a gift card to spend at the shop!

Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow!

Outdoor fun!

Well, the weather here in Calgary this summer has been super hot, but with two little gals, that is no excuse for being indoors!  So today’s Kraftin’ Kimmie challenge is a perfect way to relive some of our fun summer memories!

Outdoor-challenge-front

This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, TANGI and her challenge is OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp, with some sort of outdoor theme.  

I decided to work with Lulu from the Down on the Farm 2 set.  She is coloured up with Copics, and then I hand lettered a little sentiment with my trusty Sakura pen!  There are all sorts of fun details on this stamp, and while those little birdies are super cute, that little bunny hanging from the fence is my favourite!

So, here’s to fun outdoor activities!  I hope you have the chance to get outside this weekend, after you check out the krafty inspiration by the Krafty Girls and finish your challenge entry, of course! ;)  Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
