Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Gift Wrapping Elf

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              This fun little "Gift Wrapping Elf" is an older stamp from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps, although it may be difficult to come by... it's worth the search. A cheerful grin is great for your holiday cards. Get started early and you'll be ready to go for next Christmas season. 
To create this card 5"X 7" card I first stamped the image and colored it up and then used Tim Holtz distress ink to dirty up the background, I used a q-tip as I got closer to the image. This was a lot more difficult then just stamping the image again on a masking paper, cutting it out, and covering the image.

Stampin' Up - Christmas Cutie

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  This stamp is definitely appropriately named as a "Christmas Cutie".  I stamped the image on white 110lb coverstock.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I created the base of the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" side folding card by first folding it it half and then cutting off 1 7/8" from the cover piece. I covered the top flap with a piece of yellow cardstock measuring 3 1/2" x 4 1/4". I also covered the inside back piece with a piece of yellow cardstock measuring 2" x 4 1/4". I covered this inside piece using red Magic mesh and cut it to size before adhering this yellow piece to the card base.

I colored this cutie using the following color guide:
Copic Color Chart:
Scraf and Mittens: R29 R59
Yellow: Y11 Y13 Y15
Boots and snow suit: N4 N6 N7 N9
Snow Suit : B21 B23 B34
Hair : E21 E23 E25 E27
Skin : E01 YR00 E02 E04 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        I used the stampin' up adorning accents edgelits to create the red border detail. To create this I used the scalloped border and secured it to red cardstock using washi tape and the moved the die down a 1/4" secured it with washi tape and then ran it through the big shot again. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              I used the same die to cut a matching border on a piece of striped paper from the Bo Bunny Surprise! Collection 6x6 paper pad. I then secured the red border to this piece, and cut the striped piece to a width of approximately 3/4" by 4 1/4".
I cut a piece of the same red cardstock 3 1/4" x 4 1/8" to create a base for the image. I cut the image 3" x 3 1/4". I used my Stampabilities Happy Birthday #1 stamp for the sentiment and used Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler ink pad to stamp the "Happy Birthday" on white cardstock that I then cut to 7/8" x 2 7/8". I cut a red border piece 1" x 3" using the red cardstock. I secure the sentiment to the card base only where it met up with the top piece and not the overhang.

Quilled - Thinking of you

If you enjoy twirling paper paper then quilling is for you. I really enjoyed working in fine detail with making these little flowers. At the time I wasn't sure is quilling was for me so I used paper I had and cut my own strips with a 1/8 inch thickness. I would not recommend this because I wasn't easy to be consistent on the width of the strips and for quilling to look at it's best a better practice is to use the machine cut packs. They are economical and available in a vast array of colors.

I used a fine tip clear glue to secure the piece together and adhere them to the base of the card.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Make a Splash!

This card makes a rainy day bright using this wonderful stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Although I usually make the base of my cards in bright white for this card I decided to change it up and use grey given the rainy image. The base is a top folding 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" using 110lb coverstock.

The dotted base I used was from the Bo Bunny Baby Bump collection and was cut the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". 

I used my Copic markers to color up this image as follows:

Copic Color Chart
Coat : Y11 Y13 Y15 Y19
Dress : R14 R29 R59
Water : B00 B02 B04
Eyes : B02
Grey pant stripes :  C1 C3 C5
Skin : E000 E00 E01 E02
Mouth : R89
Tongue : R29
Hair : E35 E47 E49

Once the stamp was colored I cut the piece to 4 3/4" x 3 3/8". I cut a base in crimson red 4 7/8 x 3 1/2". I adhered these pieces together and added foam to the base before securing it to the card. 

I cut the "sending sunshine your way" sentiment from the Pebbles Spring Fling 12x12 sheet "From me to you". I added foam to this piece before securing it to the card.

To finish off the card I found in my case of dies a great raindrops confetti die. I cut a bunch of smokey blue raindrops in various sizes and pasted them to the card.

I decided to layer my patterned paper as well as my die cuts for this layers challenge.  I love this cutie and decided she needed to be a fiery little red-head.  I used 2 sheets from the Recollections Blush and Mint 6x6 Paper pad to create both the base and the chevron strip. I used dark burgundy cor'dinations paper to create the tiny borders.  To create the depth of the snowflakes I used 3 layers of dies in white and then sandwiched the top with the light blue patterned paper. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I cut the image to 3 1/4" X 4 3/4" and created a mat around it using a piece of gauze paper from the DCWV paper pack cut to 5" X 3 1/2". I added foam to the back of the image. 

Happy kraftin'!

Make a Wish

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         This top folding 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"card was made using 110lb white coverstock. It was a very quick card to whip up. I used a great multi striped sheet from the Lawn Fawn "Into the Woods" 6x6 paper pad.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              To create the illusion of a lot of work I cut the some of lines on this sheet and added foam to them to add dimension. I then added 2 rows on bright turquoise crocheted ribbon. I adhered all to the card ant then used a corner rounder on the bottom corners.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             To create the sentiment I used a piece of diagonal orange striped paper from the same paper pad cut to 1 3/8" X 4 1/8".  I cut a piece of white cardstock 4 1/4"X 1 1/2" as a border.  I used a vellum quote from the Core'dinations Celebrate pack for the sentiment. I added foam to the base of the sentiment and secured to the card. I added  turquoise gems to the sentiment to finish it off.

I couldn't help myself... I needed to create 2 cards again because this stampset is so gorgeous so this is my second card.. the 1st card I used the men stamps on Day 3... hop back a few days to check it out of you haven't already.
For this first card I started with 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" base of "X's" and "O's" from Project Life - Becky Higgins- High Five Edition. The mat for the ladies was a piece of beautiful pink and white camera paper I also found in this paper pad. I cut this piece using a large rectangle die that measures 2 1/2" x 5".

I used the the Lawn Fawn Scallopped Circles die set to create the circle border with dark aqua cardstock. I also cut the same size circle of the hearts patterned paper I found in the Bo Bunny - Baby Bump Collection. 

I used the same dark aqua cardstock to create the border around the .  The pretty hearts on a line die cut was created using a die I received when I attended the Crop N' Create Crop this past fall. I layered the die cuts 3 high to make them look more like a chip board.  The banner I cut from My Favorite Things - Calm & Cozy Chevron and the My Next Die - Hearts Banner Die. I added foam to the base of the banner to create dimension and filled the hearts with Christmas Red Stickles.  I finshed off the card using the newest Kraftin' Kimmies product ...

For this card I had the opportunity to try out the brand new pink hybrid ink..

I stamped all the hearts in this color and for the "I heart you" sentiment (from the YOU COMPLETE ME stampset) first I stamped using grey ink and then stamped over it usung the Pretty In Pink ink.  I then took out my quilling supplies as I
thought the textured contrast would be pretty. The patterned paper I used on this one was in a 6x6 paper pad by Lawn Fawn  called Kint Picky.  
To create the SMILE I used a die and cut 4 pieces of red card stock 6 white 110lb cover stock and the layered them, 2 red then the 6 white then the 2 other red.
