Gift Wrapping Elf



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.

Christmas Cutie


Stampin' Up - Christmas Cuties



                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  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

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               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


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.

Make a Splash!


Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Make a Spalsh!










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.
