Challenge #13 and more Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Well, here we are again with yet another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. This is #13 and this week, our hostess and fearless leader Kraftin' Kimmie herself wants us to use the colour combination of red, pink and chocolate! Sounds like an excuse to make a Valentine card to me! Well, I made one anyway! I had so much fun with the colours that I made another one with the same colours.

The first card is made using Shout Out!, which is one of the January Release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Now this stamp is perfect for a Valentine's Day card. I coloured in Cindy and Mindy and used my Curved Rectangles Nesties to show them off. I used the next larger size to mat them
onto, using Chocolate Chip. I moved the main image toward the top of the Chocolate Chip piece to make room to put 3 little hearts at the bottom. The patterned paper is some that my dear daughter Kimmie gave me a while ago and I love it. Unfortunately I don't know what it is. I stitched it onto some Real Red, then put it on the card base of Chocolate Chip. I made a strip using one of my border punches to go down the right side, tied some Satin Chocolate Chip Ribbon across the centre, stamped the sentiment (which is from Kraftin' Kimmie's Holiday Sentiments) on some Pretty in Pink, matted it on Chocolate Chip and that's it.

The second card uses Lavinia, one of the new Steampunk line of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, created by Annie Rodrigue. That girl is just so talented, I love her style. After colouring Lavinia, I matted her on Rose Red and Chocolate Chip. I used my yummy Bittersweet papers from Basic Grey for the background, matted them on Chocolate Chip and used Pretty in Pink for the card base. I stamped the gear accessory stamp in the corner, added three dark brown brads above it, put some Rose Red GG Ribbon across the middle and I used the stamp 'Get It In Gear!' under the main image. That stamp comes in the set of Steampunk Sentiments, which are also in the January Release.

Now it's your turn to use this great colour combination and show us your creations. Now, we have also added the option of using any kinds of hearts on your cards. If you would like to, fine. If not, that's fine too. I used them on one card, but not on the other. Have fun ladies and have a wonderful weekend.
