It's Wonderful Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps again! Anything goes, yay!!

Okay, so it's Wednesday again!!  I can't believe a whole week has gone by since I posted my last card!!  Where does the time go?

As usual, Wednesdays are Anything Goes, so you don't have to do a special theme!  I love it because I can make whatever my little heart desires.  Since it's my darling granddaughter's birthday on Thursday, I made this card with her in mind.  She is going to be 22 and is still one of the most amazing and sweet people I know.

I used one of the Springtime Lulu stamps, this one has Lulu on the swing and I think it's so cute.  For my card base I used Baja Breeze and added some retired Pixie Pink and Poppy Parade cardstock.  I love the patterned papers I used, they are called Lovebirds from Doodlebug.  I added some Baja Breeze ribbon, a red heart button, which I threaded some wire through and I used my MS heart border punch on the red cardstock.

Now if you would like to win some Kraftin' Kimmie rubbah, join in on this challenge.  Be sure to link up your photo to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog for a chance to be the randomly chosen winner.

Happy Stampin,
Back soon,
Diana

Come Fly With Me On Wonderful Wednesday!!

Well, here it is, it's Wednesday again!!  Time for some of us Krafty Girls to show a little bit of crafting and to encourage all you crafters out there to create something for our Wonderful Wednesday Challenge.  As always, it's an Anything Goes Challenge, but of course to be in the running for some Kraftin' Kimmie Rubber, you need to use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp.

I used to uber cute and sexy airline hostess from the February Release, I just love her!!  She is from our very talented Annie Rodrigue and all we Krafty Girls adore everything she ever draws.

I used some MME Charm patterned papers, which I thought worked well with this image.  I coloured her in with my Copics and cut her out using one of my Nesties dies.  I then put some Eucalyptus stickles around the edges as they blended with the colours of the papers.  I added some flowers, and arrow from a pack of MME Cupid's Arrow embellies.  The sentiment came from the patterned papers, but this little hostess comes with the sentiments Come Fly With Me!, Flying High! and Coffee, Tea or Me!

Be sure to check out all the cards at Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog and link up your creations there for a chance to win some Krafty Rubbah!!

Happy Stamping,
Diana

Flowers and Wings!!

Well, welcome back for another fabulously FUN challenge here at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!! We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can WIN MORE rubbah!! Show us your stuff!!

This week our hostess is SHERI!!! And her challenge is FLOWERS!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that features flowers in some way!




For my card, I used the cute little fairy with the wand from the Fairy Friends set.  I paired her up with some lovely papers from my new Authentique Flourish pad, which I bought from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I love it!!  I paper pieced her little dress and although you can't see it in the photo, I used gold stickles on her wand and Stardust Stickles on her dainty green wings.  As well as the flowers on two of the paper designs, I added a flower in the corner, just for added measure and because I thought it needed it.  I added the sentiment 'Have a Magical Day', one of several lovely ones which come with the set of fairies.  This set is one of the Frugal Friday Specials this week too.


We are ALSO sponsoring the challenge over on the Kit and Clowder blog!!! Their challenge is WINGS so if you create a card featuring FLOWERS AND WINGS, you can enter it into BOTH challenges for DOUBLE the chances to WIN!!! How awesome is THAT?!?
