Saturday Challenge at Kraftin Kimmie!

Hello!

It's time for another challenge at Kraftin Kimmie!  This week's challenge is to use 3 die cuts/punches. Hope you join in with us so you can  have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!! You can enter as many times per month as you'd like!!You can find all the info over on the blog

 
For my Guest DT inspiration card, I decided to use Rosie Fairy.  Isn't she just adorable.  I have to tell you, this has become my new favorite stamp!  From the beautiful rose to her wings and that little polka dot headband is just too cute!  Love it!  I recently ordered some new square dies so I wanted to try them out on this project.  The Gina Marie X stitched die is amazing!  Just look how yummy it is!  I will definitely be ordering all the other shapes as well!  For my 3 dies, I used the Scallop Square die from Sizzix, the X stitched die from Gina Marie, and the banner punch from Stampin Up (possibly my favorite punch of all time). 

 
Here's a closer look:

Swing into Summer

 
Hello from Larisa!  Today I have a sweet image to share with you!  This is Summer Swing and you can find her HERE in the Saturated Canary shop.  Too early for summer images?  No way!  :)  I told you guys, I'm ready for summer!  As a teacher, I always enjoy having the summers off.  And now that I have a little one to spend it with, I love them even more!  This is one of my all-time favorite images!  That hair...to die for!  That "poofy" dress-- so much fun to color and I love the frilly skirt underneath!  Too cute! 
 
 
I kind of wanted this card to look like Spring exploded all over it so I added some fun butterfly paper, a ton of paper flowers, some pearl swirls, and a die cut butterfly to top it off.  Oh on a side note, if you have not checked out Gina Marie's dies, you need to run, don't walk, to her shop and snap them up.  They cut beautifully and they are unbelievably affordable!  You can find them HERE! 
 
Here's a closer look:

Wonderful Wednesday Fairy

Hello!  Today is Wonderful Wednesday over at Kraftin Kimmie!  You know what that means... ANYTHING GOES!! I decided to use a cute little fairy for my card today.  This is Tea Cup Fairy and you can find her HERE in the store.  Isn't she just adorable!!!  As always, I colored her up with Copics and then I paper-pieced the cup and saucer.  I bling'd out her wings with Gold Stickles and added some fun ribbon and a gold circle paper clip.

Kraftin Kimmie April Release Day!

Hello!
 It's finally here!!! The RELEASE of Kraftin Kimmie APRIL 2016 clear stamp sets!!! 

We've released ALL five of the new clear stamp sets that we've been previewing all week and we're celebrating with an amazing krafty HOP! Here we go!



For this card, I decided to use this adorable morning coffee image from the Smart Assy 2 set.  I love the little curlers in her hair, her mud mask, and her slippers!  Too cute!  I think we've all looked like this a time or two :)  I wanted to create a shaker card so I die cut this cute scallop frame from my old chunky Sizzix dies.  Sometimes I forget I have these and I sort of rediscovered them recently.  Then I added some chunky glitter that I got at Target around Valentine's Day.  I die cut a navy "hello" for the center and added some paper roses and pearls.  I really like how this turned out!  It's so girly and I love girly things :)
