Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Rosie Fairy





You can almost smell the rose on this pretty card. I used the stamp set by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called Rosie Fairy.


Copic Color Chart
Rose : R24 R27 R29 R39 R59 R89

Wings : N0 N2 N4
Eyes :  B34
Shirt : B21 B23 B34
Skin : E000 E00 E01 E02

I used a brown gingham patterned paper by Carta Bella in the Let it Snow 6x6 paper pad for the scalloped bottom. 


The scalloped bottom border cut was made using the die from Your next Stamp called Wonky Scallop Edge Die YNSD313.


The base was created using Kraft cardstock. I cut a large strip of green patterned paper with cream polka dots I found in the 6x6 paper pad by The Paper Studio called Simplicity No.2. I removed the adhesive backing and adhered to the card above the die cut striped piece.



 I cut the colored stamped image using a rectangle die from Sizzix - Stephanie Barnard called dotted rectangles. I matted the piece with the same Kraft cardstock, added foam and adhered to the card. I cut a strip of kraft paper for the diagonal strip added foam below it and adhered the pieces to the card base slipping it just under the image mat.





The sentiment was created using a stamp from Close To My Heart called "For you darling -  Z3375". I used a circle die to cut it out and then cut the top and bottom off added a thin strip of kraft to the back and adhered to another white cardstock circle. I created a border using 2 circle dies and the same brown gingham patterned paper. I added foam to the bottom and adhered to the card then cut off the access.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - The Toymaker

 


With Christmas around the corner this card is bright and beautiful. I decided to play with circles as my inspiration. The stamp set is by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and is called The Toymaker. I colored it up, fussy cut around it leaving a white border and backed it with foam.


Copic Color Chart
Pencil - Y15 Y35 / R11 R32 R43 / E42 E43 / C1
Skin - E00 E01 E02 E11 E13
White - N0
Beard & Hair - C1 C3

Tool - E44 E47 E49 / C1 C3
Green - YG03 YG05 YG17
Tongue - R22 R29
Red - R32 R24 R29 R39

To make the circle frames I used the Stitched Nesting Circles dies by Tutti Designs. I stuck them all together with washi to tape all the dies together (evenly spaced). I used the dies to cut both white and neon green cardstock. I then positioned the circles over each other and cut the bits that extended. I made sure to use the biggest circle in the center so that I could use that one for the stamped image. I then added foam to the back of the frames. I backed the center circle with white.



I backed a few circles with the Green paper from the 6x6 paper pad by Doodlebug called the Home for the Holidays. 



I backed a few circles with the green striped paper from the 6x6 paper pad by The Paper Studio called Simplicity No.2.


I backed a few circles with the red and metallic gold ho ho ho paper from the Pebbles 6x6 paper pad called Merry Little Christmas.


The sentiment was from another Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp set called Dear Santa.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Allstar


 




I am not a huge sports fan however I know people who are and this great stamp set is a winner. I enjoyed coloring this card so much and really love how it came out. The set is by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and is called - Allstar. 


Copic Color Charts
Football - E13 E15 E19  /  N0
Skin - E00 E01 E02
Eyes - Black E44
Grey - N3 N4 N5
White - N0
Orange - YR04 YR19 E08


For the base I covered the top half using a fun black and words sheet I found in the 6x6 paper pad by Pebbles - Jen Hadfield  called Cottage Living.

For the bottom half I used the black and white triangles from the 6x6 paper pad by Project Life - Becky Higgins - High Five Edition.

I used a lighter orange then the markers so the image would pop, and I cut a piece  approximately 2 inches thick for the mat around the image. I added foam to it and adhered the piece to the bottom of the card leaving 1cm of the triangles showing. I then cut the image out by drawing 2 lines across the page omitting the football player and fussy cut the lines up to the football player and then around the payer and back to the opposite end of the line. I adhere the stamped image onto the orange mat approximately 1/4 inch from the top edge. 




I found the 2 sentiments ( You are so wonderful and Make a wish) as well as the arrow in the 6x6 paper pad by Kaisercraft called Daydreamer. This paper pad is really great and I use it time and again. I added a mat using the same orange cardstock and adhered to the card adding foam under the "You are so wonderful) and the overhang of both of the other two.


I finished of the card using XOXO stickers I found in Heidi Swapp's enamel sticker sheet - 312577.

Your Next Stamp - Mini Tweet Holiday Greetings

 





Oh so cute... I loved this little chick so much that I made 6 of them. This stamp set is by Your Next Stamp and is called Mini Tweet Holiday Greetings.


CYNS513 Stamp set


Copic Color Chart
Yellow - Y02 Y15 Y38
Beak - YR04 YR18
White - C1

Orange - YR04 YR07 E08
Blue - B21 B23 B24
Light Blue - B00 B02 B04
Aqua - BG11 BG13 BG18

This cheerful winter season card is made up of a few layers.  I started the card by using a medium blue card stock for the base. Then using a bright cobalt blue I cut the windows  using a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs called Garden Patch (1002), adding foam behind this cut out. I then traced the outside edge of the die on school bus yellow paper (to match the chicks) I cut a little on the inside of the traced edge so not to show the yellow on the outside when piecing the card together. I adhered the yellow to the center of the card, adhering the window framed die piece over it. 


I found the blue snowflakes paper in the 6x6 paper pad by Bo Bunny called Winter Getaway Collection. 



I cut 6 squares out of the snowflakes paper using the smallest square of the Dotted squares Dies by Sizzix - Stephanie Barnard.




I arranged the chicks in each of the windows putting foam under each so they would lay flat. I then chose the "Baby it's cold outside" sentiment from the Tim Holtz quote chips - Christmas #TH93753.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Sandy Toes

 


Fresh and fun summer deserves a bright and beautiful card to match. This chic gal by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is called Sandy Toes.

Glasses - W0 W1 W5 W7 W9
Bathing Suit - W5 W7
Shirt - YR30 YR31

I fussy cut around the stamped image and covered her top with Diamond Stickles.


I found a bright cartoon style clouds paper in the 4.5 x 6.5 paper pad by The Paper Studio called Pink Lemonade. I cut this as my base and adhered to the card.


For the next layer; the waves I used The paper studio called A day at the beach. I fussy cut along a wave path approximately 2-1/2 inches from the base and then adhered to the card base.


The next step I cut the yellow frame using a bright yellow paper I found in the 6x6 paper pad by Lawn Fawn called Really Rainbow.



The Frame was cut out using the My Favorite Things called Square stitched frame. I added foam to the frame.



The next step was to fussy cut palm trees from the paper pad by The Paper Studio - A day at the beach. I added foam to the tree where it butted up against the yellow frame. I did not adhere the bottom 1/2 inch of the left tree right away so I could sneak the pink sand underneath it.

The pink sand was actually a pink sky I found on a paper in the 6x6 paper pad by American Crafts called Twilight - one canoe two.



I flipped the farm paper upside down and used the Lawn Cuts- stitched trails by Lawn Fawn to create my pretty pink sandy beach. I added foam to the back and adhered it to my card, I was then able to adhere the bottom portion of the left tree.



The sun I found in the Pink Lemonade paper pad and I fussy cut around it and added foam to the back before adhering to the card.

The sentiment I found in the Echo Park 6x6 paper pad called  Good day sunshine.



The last step I adhered the fussy cut stamped image to the card adding foam to the back where necessary to lay flat.

Your next Stamp - Cute Home


Whether you're celebrating a friend's new home or sending a note to a long lost pen-pal this "Cute House (CNYS423) stamp set is perfect. A great Canadian stamp company, Your Next Stamp, brings you this versatile stamp set. One of my go-to papers is Neenah 80lbs Super Smooth Coverstock paired with Black ink - India Ink by Hero Arts. The black is rich and crisp and the Copic markers blend well on these sheets without a worry. 80lb coverstock is great when you are fussy cutting around an image and it will hold up well.


Copic Color Chart:
Yellow: Y11 Y13 Y19
Blue: B000 B00
Green : YG03 YG05 YG06 YG07
Red: R14 R29 R39
Grey Roof and Steps: C1 C3
Windows: N2 N4
Brown : E23 E25

For the background I used a fun rainbow themed paper I found in Lawn Fawn's "Really Rainbow" 6x6 paper pad.

                                   

To create the grass I found a scrap piece of solid green card stock and put it through my Sizzix Big Shot using the Your Next Stamp "Chunky Grass Die".


You'll find the clouds paper in this oldie but a goodie of a paper pad by American Crafts called #Summer. 



 I used red cardstock to mat the piece and cut out the word Hello with a die that I had in my case, unfortunately I don't know the brand but many companies have great "Hello" dies. I used the same die to also cut out a 2 matching pieces of foam so that it could be layered.





For a hidden fun feature I used the flowers for the inside of the card as I found them to be a tad bit disproportionate compared to the tree and house.
