Challenge #83. Kiddie Cards!!

Hidee ho and good morning stampers! As the title says, this week our challenge is to make cards for our little people. That's not a hard one, right? I think it's fun to make kiddie cards. I'm the hostess this week, so I get to pick!!

For my card I chose to use Kraftin' Kimmie's Dancing Dylan. I think she is so cute and so simple to colour for a nice quick card. I used some very pretty Daisy D's Sweet Baby Jane papers. It only contains different shades of pink and green and I could have added more colours on my image, but with Dylan being such a simple image, I just went with the pinks and greens. I coloured her of course with my Copics, using Neenah White card stock, I put some Stardust Stickles on her wings and on the star of her little wand. I cut out the image layer using Labels 7 Nesties, then I traced around the outside of the die using retired Mauve Mist, which is a perfect match with the papers. I then cut it out to make a border for my image. I used my white Signo Gel Pen to make faux stitching around the border. I used Gable Green for the card base with some Mauve Mist matted onto it and the patterned papers matted onto that. I repeated the faux stitching on the M. Mist border. I found some adorable matching Prima flowers, which I adhered on the right of the card, putting a half pearl in the centre. I added some smaller matching half pearls below the image layer, then I stamped 'You're Fairy Sweet' from Kraftin' Kimmie's Fairy Sentiments on a scrap of Gable Green, matted it onto some Mauve Mist and repeated the faux stitching once again. I think it's a cute card for a little girl.

Now you get to make a card for a little person in your life. You know you always need some. If you link your cards up to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog using a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, you will be entered to win 'Dancing Dylan' since that's the stamp I used on my card. Okay, I just got an update from Kraftin' Kimmie saying that the winner will in fact get a SET of Steven Leary stamps!! Woo Hoo, now that's a treat!!

Have fun creating and I hope you have a great weekend and a great week.
