Hi all you lovely stampers out there in Blogland! As you see from the title, this week's challenge is 'A Blast From The Past'. Our awesome and talented hostess for this week is Angie and she would like us to use one of our first Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I think this is a great challenge and I was happy to have an excuse to ink up one of my first KK Stamps. I had a hard time choosing, but I have to say that the quirky, mischievous Lillith is probably my very favourite, certainly my favourite of the first ones. She has such expression on her face that you know she's either done something naughty or is about to. Of course, putting a frog on your head when you are dressed in your best clothes is probably a big part of what she's up to. I love that the frog has the same mischievous expression as Lillith.
I used some 'once again unknown paper' for this. I wanted some bold colour for Lillith, so I used this lovely sparkly paper with a black background. I coloured Lillith to match, cut her out with my Labels Eight, then sponged around the edges with some pretty green pigment ink. I put some green satin ribbon across the front and made a bow with my 'Bow Easy'. I pop dotted Lillith on the right, added some orange and green Prima flowers, then I stamped 'You're Toadally Awesome' on some orange cardstock to match the matting behind the dotted layer. I used some Gable Green for the card base. Now we want you to use one of your first Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps to make any kind of card you like. Be sure to link up your creation to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog for a chance to win Lola Da Vinci, which is the stamp Angie has used on her awesome card.
Also, I want to remind you of Frugal Friday, there are 6 lovely stamps that are on sale until Sunday for 40 - 50% off. The stamps are Sharing is Loving, Little Summer Girl, Virginia, Lily Lemon, Squirrel's Gift and Cheeky Monkey.
Some more great news is that for every order of $25 or more before taxes and shipping, you will receive a FREE Steven Leary stamp. I love Steven Leary's images and have used them a lot.
So go to it stampers and let's see what you have for us. I can't wait to see which stamps you choose for your cards.
See you next week,
