Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge 76! Flowers!!

Hello, it's Saturday morning once again and time for a Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. Our hostess with the mostest this week is Andrea and she wants us to use flowers on our cards.

Well, you wouldn't think that was hard, would you? I mean, it's not like I don't have oodles of flowers and papers with flowers on etc. But as you will see if you have read my last post, I totally messed up as I thought I was making a card for this week's challenge, but totally forgot about flowers and I used Chef Sheldon! So here I am again trying to get something posted that's actually correct!!

Anyway, I am dying to use all the new fairies from the Kraftin' Kimmie April Release, they are all so cute. I used Rosabelle for this card, one of the many awesome illustrations by our super talented Annie Rodrigue! Her work is amazing!!

I coloured Rosabelle with my Copics to match the S.U. Tea Party DP I had picked. It's retired now, but I love it. I cut her out using my circular and Pinking Nesties. The pinked frame is in Apricot Appeal. The other cardstocks are Wild Wasabi and Pretty in Pink. I used some handmade flowers , some Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon and a toadstool charm.

It's a simple card, but I didn't have much time to put it together. I'm happy with it anyway.

I hope you will all have a happy and safe weekend.

Blessings,
Diana

Kraftin' Kimmie's Chef Sheldon!

Hi all you gals out there, I'm trying to make up for being away for 3 weeks, so today I made a card with cute little Chef Sheldon. I think he is so adorable, as are all the Steven Leary images. This is from the Kraftin' Kimmie April Release and I haven't had much time to play with them yet. I think this sweet image could be used for anyone.

I coloured Sheldon with my Copics of course and I paper pieced his li'l oven mitts. I used an Oval Nestie to cut him out, then used a Big Scalloped Oval Nestie to border it. I always get frustrated because a lot of the Nesties only come in the one set, so the next size up is too big for what I want. My dear daughter Kraftin' Kimmie suggested drawing around the outside of the same Nestie, which is a little bit larger than where the die actually cuts. Then I cut it out and it makes the perfect size border. Thanks Kimmie!! I used some MME Glittered paper and did my own thing for the layout. I added some twine, a cute little cutting board button, some brown pearls and I used the sentiment from Abigail Apple on a piece of Kiwi Kiss, which matches the Kiwi Kiss on the image border. The other cardstocks are Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip.

That's it for me, have a wonderful evening and a great day tomorrow.

Blessings,
Diana

Happy Easter and Challenge 75. Let's see your Frills!!

Hi all you stampers out there, I do wish you a happy and Blessed Easter! I have been MIA for a few weeks as my husband and I and our darling granddaughter Emileigh have been in Florida. I wish I could say it's good to be back, but we came home to such grotty weather after all the sun and heat there, that I almost wish I was still there.

Okay, so this week's hostess for the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is the very Krafty Krista She would like us to use lace or frills on our cards. She has used 'Diana' so that's the stamp you will win if your creation should be randomly chosen.

For my card I used the gorgeous 'Isabelle', I think all the fairies are adorable, I can't wait to get back down to business and use them all. I coloured her with my Copics of course, I used some Stardust and Cotton Candy Stickles on her wings and I brushed some Smooch Pearlized Topcoat on her hair. For my patterned papers, I used the new K and Company Sweet Nectar. I used some Olive Dew Drops on the image layer and some white frilly ribbon down the left side. The cardstocks I used are Kiwi Kiss, Bashful Blue and Real Red. The sentiment I used is from Kraftin' Kimmie's Fairy Sentiments.

Be sure and link your creations up to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog for a chance to win Diana and so we can all check them out.

That's it for me, I pray you will have a wonderful time this weekend with family and friends.

Blessings,
Diana
