For my li'l card, I used the cute little princess from the 'Believe in Fairytales' set, which is newly released just a few days ago.  I had such fun with this one and I made it for an adult, I know I would love getting a card like this.  I used Regal Rose for the card base and also for the punched out border I put down the left side on the strip of patterned paper.  The patterned paper I used is the Bella pack from Wild Rose Studio.  I matted the image layer using YoYo Yellow and Wisteria Wonder.  I used the sentiment 'Hope Your Day is Magical' which comes with the same stamp set.  I used Regal Rose card stock and layered it onto a mini doillie, which you can find at the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop.  I added a cute princess button, which also comes from the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop.  The finishing touch is a satin bow, just to make it even more feminine.
Now how about you get crafty and show us your lovely creations.  Be sure to link them up to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog.

Wonderful Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!



Well, here we are, it's Wonderful Wednesday again, time to post another Anything Goes Kraftin' Kimmie creation.  I just loved this little guy, so I had to make a card with him.  I think he's actually Huck Finn, but I thought he looked like a little farmer and made my card with that in mind.  He comes from the set 'Book Pals', which also included Pippi Longstocking and Laura Ingalls.  They are all so cute.  You can find them at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop.

I used Wild Wasabi for my card base and matted black onto the base under the patterned paper background.  The papers are Summer Fresh by Simple Stories.  I used black under the chevron strip of patterned paper and also on the image frame and the rectangle of red check.  I also used some Real Red and Daffodil Delight card stock.  I paper pieced his pants and doodled around the edges of the frame.  I added some brown and beige tiny buttons on the strip and a little piggy button onto some linen thread.  The sentiment 'Aw shucks, yer nice' comes with the set.

So now you get your trusty pencils, markers or whatever out and see what you can link to Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog for a chance to win.

Happy Stamping,
Diana

It's Wonderful Wednesday again!!





Good morning, it's Wonderful Wednesday again!  I am actually joining in on this one and sharing a card I made for my hubby for Father's Day.  The image is from the 'Wild and Crazy Guys' set.  Besides the tool guy, there is a barbecuing fellow and a golfer.  They are all awesome!!  Actually any one of them would have worked for my husband as he does a lot of building and fixing around the house, he also barbecues and he plays golf.  However, someone else I know, has made him a card with the golfer, so I chose this one.

I am away from home right now, so I am not near my craft room, but I think the patterned papers I used are 'All About A Boy'.  I used Daffodil Delight for the card base and Early Espresso to matt the papers on.  I chose 'You're A Handy Guy' for my sentiment from the set and I found a lovely dark brown wrench, which I tied onto the twill ribbon with some linen thread.  Such fun to make a card with this image.

So don't forget to join in with our Wonderful Wednesday Challenge for a chance to win some rubber.  Link up your card or creation to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog and don't forget that WW is always Anything Goes, so no theme to worry about.  Also, be sure to check out Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps to see all the new goodies she has just brought in and also, every weekend except Release Weekend, she puts a bunch of awesome Kraftin' Kimmie stamps on sale.  These are what she calls Frugal Friday specials.

So Happy Stamping, all you gals out there.  I can't wait to get home and back to my craft room and see what I can get up to.

Pretty in Pink! Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge, April 9th.

Happy Mother's Day weekend.  I hope all you Moms out there have a wonderful day tomorrow.

I am actually joining in a Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge this weekend.  I have missed taking part with the other members of the Design Team, so I thought I would give this one a go.

What could be more fun than  'Pretty in Pink' for a theme.  Ooh, the mind boggles at what could be done with pink.  I have a very special friend in England who has a birthday coming up, so I was able to combine the two.

I used one of the Becky's Beautiful Sentiments line, this one comes from the 'Make A Wish' set.  I was spoilt for choice as there are a bunch of birthday sayings, but I chose this one as I love the sentiment and also the scroll work above and below.

I used pink card stock for the base and for the frame around it.  I matted the patterned papers, (which are Letters from Paris from Wild Rose Studios) onto Always Artichoke card stock.  I added some pink brads and a pretty pink ribbon.  Simple, but I like it.

Now it's your turn to create your own Pretty In Pink card or whatever takes your fancy.  Be sure to link your creation up to Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog to be entered into a random draw for some crafty goodies from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps shop.

Happy Stamping and Creating,
Diana

Wonderful Wednesday, May 6th.



Well, hello and Happy Wonderful Wednesday to all fellow crafters out there.  I know I have been MIA for a long time, have to confess I was in Florida for most of the winter and just did not have room to take card making supplies.  I am now so rusty, it took me hours to put together this simple card.

I used Pippi, who is one of Cheryl's gorgeous creations.  I just love her illustrations.  Pippi is one of the stamps in the set 'Book Pals'.  The other two stamps are Huck Finn and Laura Ingalls.  So lovely.

I used kraft card stock for my card base, my patterned papers are Blackberry Lane from Wild Rose Studio.  I matted them onto Kiwi Kiss card stock and the image layer and sentiment were on Pale Plum.  I added a ribbon of kraft seam binding, a few flowers and a couple of Kiwi Kiss brads.  As I said, not a complicated card, but I am so out of practice.

Be sure to enter the Wonderful Wednesday Challenge yourselves for a chance to win some new rubber.  Come on, you're making cards anyway and the theme is always 'Anything Goes'.

Happy Stamping,
Diana

It's Wonderful Wednesday over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!


Well, good morning or afternoon, or whatever time of day it is with you, I hope it is great!!  I'm afraid I have not posted for a while, I have been very busy with other things and I really miss the stamping and card making.  

This is a very simple card using the Kraftin' Kimmie's Interior Sentiments.  I have not had time to make too many intricate cards this season, but I wanted to show this as I think you can make a very pretty card without taking too much time.  I love using the Interior Sentiments on the outside of my cards too as I feel very strongly that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus first and foremost.  By using the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares, it makes it a little fancier.  I used some retired Gable Green cardstock matted onto a Confetti White base, added a little patterned paper and some red ribbon and there you go.  I love to make fancy cards, but when I am pressed for time, I am quite happy to do something like this.

Now don't forget, you can show us your cards for a chance to win a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp.  As always, it's Anything Goes, so let's see your creations.

Happy Stampin'

Hey! It's the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps October Release!


Hi everyone!  As the title says, it's time for yet another amazing release over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I just love all the stamps.  I have chosen to use just the kitty in the mailbox from the Candy Cane Kisses set by Cheryl Alger.  I adore everything she creates.  

For my card, I used the Bo Bunny 'Candy Cane Lane' pad.  It has pages for Christmas and some for just winter.  I had no idea the name was so similar to the stamp set until I just checked!  Anyway, I used Blushing Bride for the card base, then I used Bermuda Bay for most of my matting.  I framed my image with Bermuda Bay Scalloped Nesties after cutting out the image using my Oval Nesties.  Since there was a little gold star on one of the little trees, I thought I would add a star to the mix in Marigold Morning and I put a sentiment from the set on the star.  I added a clear snowflake on the pink patterned paper and I added some Stardust Stickles to it as well as putting a little on the snowy ground.

As well as this great set of stamps, we have a Pom Pom Fairy and a Sparkle Fairy from the uber talented Annie Rodrigue and another set from Thais Narcisso called 'Merry Christ-mouse'.  You won't see a cuter set of mice anywhere!!

Now be sure to hop around to the blogs of all the Krafty Girls and leave a comment at each of them for more chances to win a package of some of this new Krafty rubber.

Happy Hopping,
Diana

It's Wonderful Wednesday again at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!


Yep, it's Wonderful Wednesday again, one of my favourite Challenges!!  As always, the theme is 'Anything Goes' and that suits me just fine.

For my card, I have used the awesome Lucas from our wonderfully talented artist, Cheryl.  I just adore all her stamps.  Did you ever see a cuter stone age boy?  I am always looking for stamps to use on masculine cards, so this was a perfect choice for me.  To be honest, it was given for a birthday almost as soon as I had it finished.  

This stamp comes in a set with two other adorable 'Cave Kids', the other two are Lulu and Lexi.  I coloured with my trusty Copics, then matted the image layer onto one of the Deckle dies from Spellbinders.  I used some very cute papers from Basic Grey, Max and Whiskers.  I used a great little canvas tag and stamped 'You Rock', which is one of the 7 sentiments that come with the set.  They are all so clever and cute.  My card base is Kraft and the frame and 'Happy Birthday' sentiment are punched from Dusty Durango card stock.  I added some linen thread and a little green dinosaur to the tag.

Be sure to visit Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop to see this and other amazing stamps and don't forget to link up your own Wonderful Wednesday 'Anything Goes' creation to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog for a chance to win some Kraftin' Kimmie rubber.

Happy craftin',

Wonderful Wednesday, August 6th.

Well, hello all you lovely stamping folks out there.  I have to confess that I have not been around much for a while.  I have been into some other creative projects, which have tied me up.  I have enjoyed them though and now I'm back to my other love, cardmaking.

As the title says, It's Wonderful Wednesday, which of course is whatever theme you choose.  For my card, I chose Lulu playing the violin from the set 'You're a Rock Star'.  I used a simple layout, my lovely patterned papers are American Crafts pad, XOXO, which came from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop.  I coloured Lulu with my crafty Copics, added some die cut musical notes, a row of bling in pink and clear gems, then added some lovely flowers and some punched out leaves.  I used Regal Rose and Cranberry Crisp cardstock.

Okay, so now it's your turn to make and Anything Goes creations and link it to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog for a chance to win some Krafty rubber.

Happy Stampin'
