Okay, I know the weather has been a bit unpredictable this year, but Christmas in July???!!!!  Really???!!!

Christmas-challenge-front

Well, “weather” you are ready to think about Christmas yet or not, we have a fun challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps this week for you.   This week our hostess is STEPHANIE and her challenge is CHRISTMAS IN JULY! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp, using a holiday theme!

Christmas-challenge-closeupThis week, I decided to work with one of my favourite stamps from the winter release last year – from Lexi’s Winter Fun set.  I coloured up Lexi and her snowman pal with Copics to match some DCWV paper I had kicking around and then added a bit of May Arts eyelet ribbon for some texture.  I love how the angle of this stamp makes it so easy to highlight a sentiment!

Don’t forget that Kimmie has put a bunch of great product on sale this weekend – stamps and paper!  So head on over and stock up!

Thanks for stopping by today!

More tutu fun!

Last week, I share a tutu-orial I created for May Arts on how to create a simple tutu from tulle.  Today, as part of Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Wonderful Wednesday challenge, I thought I would share a couple more projects I created inspired by ballerinas!

 

Tutu-card-angledThis little card was created with the Lil’ Athletes set from Kraftin’ Kimmie.  This cutie is so much fun to colour, and I have seen all sorts of fun techniques with her tutu, including a layer of tulle on top!  I decided to colour her up with Copics and then top her off with some layered silk and sequined ribbon from May Arts!  The sentiment is hand lettered, and you can check out a tutorial for that process that I posted last week as well (it was a busy week)!

Tutu-card-closeupSo, let’s talk about the KKS challenge.  As always, the theme is ANYTHING GOES so break out your Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and get krafty!! Your submission 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 July 29th. At the end of the month, one winner will be chosen from all the submissions that month and will receive a $20 gift code to the KKS shop  So if there are four Wednesdays, you have FOUR chances to WIN!

Before I sign off, I will leave you with a couple of other pictures of ballerina inspired projects, just because I love ballerinas!  Have an awesome day and thanks for stopping by!

For today’s hop, I decided to work with the darling Lulu from YOU’RE A ROCKSTAR! Whether you see this cutie with a violin or a fiddle, there is no mistaken the music she brings to any card!  Coloured with Copics and teamed up with some Kaisercraft paper and May Arts ribbon, I think this card is a great way to brighten a day!
