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.

Happy Crafting  :)

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.

This is the 1st of 2 cards I've  made using this stampset..  check back on day 5 to see my other creation.

 This card was a lot of fun. I had a concept in my head and had to search through a lot of paper pads to find just the right papers. I hope you like it as much as I do. I started the card using a base of trees which I found in Lawn Fawn's Into the Woods 6x6 paper pad.

The orange frame was created using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Die set called Dashing Rectangles. Although difficult to see in the photos there are tiny cut out dashes around the die cuts. This Border and one sun was cut out using patterned paper by American Crafts - Hip Hip Hooray! 6x6 paper pad. 

I was able to find clouds paper in the #Summer 6x6 paper pad by American Crafts. This piece was cut using the larger Dashing Rectangles Die to match perfectly. In this same pad I found the yellow paper I used to create the other sun die cut that I used as the top layer.

The clouds were creating using a die I found in my stash and patterned white paper I found in American Crafts - Project Life - Becky Higgins - Everyday Edition. I used foam to create dimension. 

I created the layered grass using 2 different green patterned papers and the Taylored Expression die called Wispy Grass Border Die. The 1st grass border was cut from green patterned paper in the #Summer 6x6 Paper pad mentioned above. The other was from the My Favorite Things - Calm & Cozy Chevrons paper pad I used from the above 1st card. I cut 2 of each and layered the pair twice adding one directly to the card base and the other on top of the frame to create dimension and leave room for the men to be secured.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Beary Love - Day TWO

Welcome back to our second day of Krafty Peeks for the January release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Today we are spillin' ALL the tea and sharing SO many NEW goodies with you....are you ready?

First up is today's super ADORABLE new stamp set from artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen!
It's called BEARY LOVE!!!

I think you'll agree with me that this set is BEARY sweet and will be great to use for many occasions!  It includes five main images, a couple of sentiments and a bunch of fabby accessory stamps!


Next...I bet you've been guessing about what our BRAND NEW PRODUCT might be!  You may have even noticed them on my Day ONE release post... Well...as papercrafters we love adding that special embellishment that just finishes off our cards or scrapbook pages perfectly!  For myself and many others.....that's the wonderful enamel dot!!!
Introducing Kraftin' Kimmie Dots!!

We are releasing TWO sets of the new DOTS this month to kick things off!  First up is a set called Krafty Basic Dots which contains all the colors you should have in your arsenal.....black, white, yellow, red and blue!  The second set is perfect for this release covering all shades of reds and pinks!  The perfect extras to throw in your cart!

How about a NEW Krafty Kolours Hybrid INK???
This month we are releasing this super sweet color called PRETTY IN PINK!  Of course it comes as an ink pad, a mini cube and an ink refill!  It coordinates with many of our colors and of course....can be used with our stencils!!!

Stencils you say???  Why yes we DO have new ones for you this month!  For January we are releasing TWO new Krafty Stencils perfect for our inks, texture pastes, glimmer pastes and more!  They are Happy Hearts and Harlequin!!!

You will see all these goodies in today's krafty hop (and you may have seen some of them in yesterday's hop if you were looking)!  ALL of our new krafty goodies will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday, January 12 at 2pm EST in the Krafty Friends group!


I love this stampset so much that I just had to create 2 cards for this release.

This 1st card I made using the fabulous new Happy Hearts Stencils to create my background. To achieve this look I took a piece of white 110lb coverstock and adhered the piece to my craft board using washi tape. I covered 1/4" of each side to keep the border crisp white. I then adhered the stencil to the piece also using washi tape and brushed on Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink across the card. I then used Tim Holtz Red Brick ink to the bottom left of the card where I intended to adhere my bear. 

The cute glossy bear was created using White Liquid Applique. I then colored the bears ears, muzzle, tummy and heart using the following Copic colors:

Copic Color Chart 
Ears/Muzzle/tummy : E40 E43 E44
Red hearts: R24 R29 R59 

For the die cuts I created the frame using 2 nestled dies by Sizzix - Framelits Stephanie Barnard - Rectangles Dotted.  For the Die cut hearts I used the Lawn Fawn Say What? GiftTags dies.

For my second card I decided to create a cute little 70's inspired living room scene. I may have wasted a lot of paper trying to figure out how to create the illusion on walls.  Thankfully not my favorite sheets. I ended up finding all 3 of these patterned papers in the same paper pad. Pebbles - Happy Day! 6x6 paper pad had the wining combination. The grey baseboards and trim was made using scrap grey cardstock I had in my pile. I created the lamp and chair using the design features on my Silhouette.  For the lamp shades 3D shape I pasted the right and left edges directly to the card base and used foam in the center. I added detailed dotted to the shade using Liquid Applique. The sentiment was created using a die from the  Stampin Up die set called "From the Garden"

For the bear I used the following Copic Color Chart:

Fur : C1 C3 C5 C7
Paws : C1 C3
Heart tummy: R11 R02 R22 
I colored the heart on the sentiment tag using R22

Hop around and check out the amazing samples from our incredible Krafty Team and Guests!
See you back here tomorrow!
