Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #152! Musical Inspiration!!

Good morning Krafty people!!  This week, as the title says, we are to create a project inspired in some way by music.  Elaine is our super duper hostess this week and her project is beautiful.  Now we have plenty of images to choose from, especially as all of the Annie images in the latest October Release are dancers.  I expect some of the other girls will have done awesome things with some of them.  Always having to be awkward, I wanted to do something different.  This is one of my favourite snowman images ever and is from our very talented artist Emilie Goulet.  This one always makes me think of the song 'Walking in a Winter Wonderland'.  Fortunately for me, Kraftin' Kimmie has that sentiment in her Holidays Sentiments  set.

So I made an A2 size card, which I rarely do any more.  I used some gorgeous Very Merry Christmas papers from Echo Park.  My card base is kraft and I matted the green snowflake paper onto some Cranberry Crisp and then some Wild Wasabi cardstock.  After colouring my snowman and his birdie friends, I added some Stardust Stickles, then cut out the image using my Circle Nesties.  I framed it using one of my Pinking Circles dies on some more Cranberry Crisp CS.  I used kraft paper for the sentiment, which I heat embossed using....  do you believe it...  Winter Wonderland white embossing powder.  I added a few musical notes, also using kraft CS.  Lastly, I added a clear snowflake in the top right corner after putting some Stardust Stickles all over it to give it a bit of sparkle.

So that's it.  I'll bet you can come up with a creation inspired by music.  We look forward to seeing them all up until next Friday, when Kim will draw a random winner, who will win the stamp Elaine has used on her creation, which is Aurelia the angel.  Just link up your project to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog.

Happy Stamping,
Diana

Release Day and Krafty Hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

Hi everyone.  Well, it's finally here, time for the October Release of stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie!!  Yay!!  We have so many great stamps for you this month and you will find them all at the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop!

For my card today, I am using one of the cute babies from the Oh Baby! set.  This little guy sure wants to be picked up, doesn't he?  Does this look familiar to anyone?  It sure reminds me of days gone by.

I used my circle Nesties to cut out my coloured image, then sponged around the outside while the image was still in the die.  I framed that layer with my Lacy Circles die.  I used Nana's Nursery Baby Boy patterned papers, stitched around the outsides of the papers and added a few pearls to match the retired Morning Marigold cardstock I used for the base and for the sentiment, which comes with the set, along with a few others.  The green cardstock is Wild Wasabi.  Oh, and I finished off with some Wild Wasabi seam binding ribbon.

You will see lots more creations as you hop around and don't forget.  Some lucky folks are going to win some packages of the new gorgeous rubber.

Have fun,
Diana
