Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Challenge: You’re The Main Attraction!

Today brings a new Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Challenge.  This week our hostess is the lovely Jessie and she has asked us to EMBELLISH IT!  She wants to see THREE embellishments on everyone’s cards/projects this week.

I tend to find challenges fairly tricksy.  I’m very much a “freestyle” girl, I don’t like working to a plan, so I tend to get all itchy and fidgety when working on challenge cards.  The strange thing, I usually end up really liking how they turn out!  This challenge was particularly tricky because (in case you hadn’t noticed) I don’t tend to use a lot of embellishments.  That’s actually quite funny, since I have an incredible stash of them. ;)

Anyway, here’s my card for the challenge, featuring RUBY THE RINGMISTRESS from the Circus Girls release (also available in the UK at Quixotic Paperie).  It still ended up pretty clean and simple in style, as I used 1. a die cut sentiment (the sentiment stamp comes with Ruby) 2. a heart shaped button and 3. some small crystal gems around the image.

You’ll notice that I also played with my sewing machine again.  I had forgotten how much I love the finished look stitching can give, so you can expect to see more of this from me now I’ve rediscovered it. ;)

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers. The designer paper is from an older Bo Bunny collection.  I’m doing pretty well at the moment, using up my vast hoard of scraps and papers.  There’s still a long way to go, but I’m not adding to it at the moment, so hopefully I’ll actually manage to downsize a bit!  The sentiment and mat were diecut using MFT Die-Namics Fishtail Flags STAX.

I hope you’re having a great weekend.  Make sure you stop by the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps challenge blog and join in – we love seeing your creations, and of course if you play along using a KKS stamp you could win the stamp featured on our hostess Jessie’s challenge card!

Getting Spooky with Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Happy Saturday!  We’ve got a nice quiet weekend planned, as it is Paul’s birthday tomorrow, so we’re going to hang out and relax.  Well, after I make his birthday card that is…I know, I’m very last minute!  When it comes to making cards for specific people, I can be incredibly indecisive.

Anyway!  This week’s challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is to create something SPOOKY.  Pretty simple, since the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps range includes some fantastic Halloween images (that are perfect for more than just Halloween, if you’re like me and enjoy creepy/spooky/kooky all year round).

Our hostess this week is the lovely Jenny, and if you join in using a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp, you could win the stamp featured on her card today!  All you have to do is submit your entry over on the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps challenge blog (where you will find the other Krafty Girl Kreations and challenge guidelines/info).

On my card I have used one of my very favourite stamps in Annie Rodrigue’s Moonlight Whispers collection – BATTY PRINCESS (Batty Princess and a huge selection of other Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps designs are available in the UK at Quixotic Paperie).

I also created a little tag to go with the card, which pulls out from behind the image layer.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  The designer paper is from Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor 6×6.  I added a little bow tied with the help of my Bow Easy template, embellished with two buttons nested together and some black twine.  The little banner sentiment I added is from the Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor 12×12 kit - I actually cut it from the packaging insert sheet and mounted it on card!  The image and mat were cut using Spellbinders Grand Circles nestabilities, and I simply cut the sides off!

I used the following MFT Die-Namics dies:

Spooktacular, no?  :)  I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out my card, and remember, we would love to see you joining in the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Challenge!

Before I go, I’d also like to remind all my Canadian friends that the latest Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Krafty Day is only a week away!  If you would like to attend, and haven’t yet booked your place, hop on over to the website and do so!  There are some fantastic make and takes planned by some of the Krafty Girls who are attending, and having seen this year’s Krafty Day stamp and the awesome tote bags (plus extra goodies) attendees will receive, you do not want to miss out.  

Have a great weekend, whatever you’re up to!

Spooky Favourite – Perfect Poison

Today’s card is also being posted over on the Quixotic Paperie store blog – Quixotic Inspirations, as part of the Spooktacular Halloween week.  Make sure you pop on over there if you haven’t already, to check out the inspiration from this week and to enter the giveaway in >this post<.  Tomorrow will be your last chance to enter the giveaway, and Delphine will be showing off another spooktacular make!

The challenge this week at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is to use your favourite Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps image.  Tough challenge, simply because narrowing it down was a mammoth task in itself (for me anyway).  I finally chose PERFECT POISON (also available in the UK at Quixotic Paperie).  She’s so full of spooky mischief, and she is a lot of fun to colour.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.

Designer papers are Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor 6×6.  The stunning corner diecut was cut using one of the new Dies by SCACD designs – Alice’s Clock Statement Corner.  I added a little bow tied with the help of my Bow Easy template, and accented with one of the MFT Die-Namics Halloween Charms diecuts.

Hope to see you joining in the challenge this week!
