Pretty Pink Ballerina!!

Happy Saturday and happy challenge day!!  It's time for another fun challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and I am this week's hostess!!  I hope you can play along!  I LOVE to see everyone's kreations!!  PLUS you could WIN some new rubbah!

So my challenge to you is called PRETTY IN PINK!!!  You HAD to know that was coming, right?!  You know how much I love PINK!!  So use any Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and pink it up!!!

I used the adorable little ballerina from the LIL' ATHLETES stamp set!  I used some MME papers and LOTS of flowers....I may have gone a bit overboard with the flowers...hehe!  I added some pink lace, a pretty white doilie and a spray of pearls!

You can't see it in the photo really, but I used lots of dots on her tutu with the copic markers and then also a clear Spica pen!

Don't forget there are lots of awesome stamp sets on 25-50% OFF in the FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS and the NEW March release stamps and 6x6 paper pads are now available too!!!  Happy shoppin'!

Have a wonderful weekend and happy kraftin'!

Do YOU Believe in Fairies?

Good morning, krafty friends!!  I haven't had much time for krafty fun lately so I'm excited to share a creation this morning!

I've been teaching some Kard Klasses in my Krafty Kave over the past few months!  It's been so much fun and the ladies and I are having a great time playing with all sorts of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and learning new techniques!  So I thought I'd share one of the cards we made at the February class!

I designed this card featuring the sassy pixie, TINKERBELL!!  She was so much fun to colour up!  We learned how to colour under transparent objects, like her wings, then we fussy cut the main image and then covered her wings in Glamor Dust glitter!  The card was very simple using black for the A2 sized base with pink for matting.  The patterned paper is some older design from my stash along with a pretty doily.  The sentiment comes with the Tinkerbell stamp set and we used some Pretty in Pink stitched grosgrain ribbon to make a double bow using the Bow Easy!  Lastly we added some white dots to her cheeks using the Sharpie Poster Paint pen!

This is just one of the cards we created at the last class and I'll be sharing more later!  The next set of classes are next week (March 26th and 29th) and if you'd like more information about the classes held here at my house in St. Thomas, Ontario....check out THIS POST!!  

Happy kraftin'!

I used the new SNOW MUCH FUN stamp set along with a sentiment from the YOU'RE SO COOL! stamp set for my design!  I also used the Powder Mountain 6x6 pad from Bo Bunny....I love these blues!!  I coloured up the image and added Diamond Dust glitter on the ice and snow, then added some red seam binding ribbon and some acrylic snowflakes that I scooped up at the dollah store!!!

The Winter Kardmaking Kit!!! {LOVE!}

So...have you heard about our new Krafty Kardmaking Kits??  They are fabby doo!!  SO many goodies in the kit to play with and so much inspiration that comes along with it!

To illustrate how much you can create with just one kit, we're doing a little hop today!  Six of the Krafty Girls were each given 1/6th of a kit and if you hop around today, you can see all the gorgeous stuff we made!!

With my portion of the kit I made this fun 6x6 card using one of the stamps from our I'M SNOW HAPPY! stamp set!

I just love the colours in the Snow Day papers AND I was thrilled with the adhesive cork paper (you get 2 6x6 sheets of it in a kit)!  I was worried about how it would cut but my icicle border punch went right through buttah!

I also made these two fun tags!!  I STILL had supplies leftover and I had planned to make a bookmark....but I ran out of time!! And that's just 1/6th of the kit!!

Hop over to the KKStamps blog today and check out all the other fun things that were made using just ONE kit!!!  Then head over to the KKS Shop and grab one for yourself!!!

Happy kraftin'!
