Darling Dragons Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Anyone that knows me knows I LOVE dragons! I even have a couple small sculptures and artwork in my craft room of them so of course I had to get this Darling Dragons set from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!

I wanted to try something a little different with them for this card. I did a galaxy background using my Distress Ink Oxides. Then added some clouds using the Border Die 2 from Jaded Blossom and light grey cardstock from Papertrey Ink. 

My dragons I colored up on Xpress It Cardstock, cut then up and adhered two of the three dragons with foam squares and the third dragon just directly to the card. For some final touches I used my pretty new Nuvo drops for white speckles. I tried to add some sparkle mist but forgot that the oxides react with water lol the sparkle didn't show up - I just got more water spots.

Hope you enjoyed today's card!

Happy Thursday! I wanted to share today a card I made using Blue Jean from C.C. Designs. She is one of the stamps I picked up shown in one of my haul videos. I'll post the video down below if you'd like to see what other goodies I got too! 

For this card, I used my Tim Holtz stencil an Distress Ink Oxides. I blended 3 different colors and love how they look together. For my image, I colored her out on Xpress It cardstock, cut her out with my Scan n Cut and adhered her to the card using foam squares.  I love this image! She is one of my favorite to color up!

Friends Furever My Favorite Things

Hello! Hello! I'm popping in to share with you a CAS card I created using My Favorite Things. Super sweet stamp set and so many cute sentiments on it!

For this one, I did a little ink blending with my Distress Ink Oxides. I started by putting a piece of painters tape on two sides of my paper and one about a quarter of the way up my card. Then I inked up the paper above the tape with my Broken China Distress Ink Oxide. I started in a little heavy and then gradually softened my touch as I worked my way towards the middle of the card. Once I was satisfied with the blue, I carefully removed my tape that was in the middle of the card and added it over I'd just been with the blue. I used some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink Oxide and repeated the same steps. 

Once I was happy with the blending, I carefully removed all the tape. I came out with this beautiful soft background on one side of my card which is exactly what  I was going for.

My bear I colored up in copics marker,s cut it out with my Scan N Cut and used some foam squares to add it to my card. I didn't really want to add much more so I just stamped this super sweet sentiment next to my bear. I also used some clouds from Jaded Blossom to put off in the corner just to break up all that white.

I also watched Marilyn's video using the Forest background set and tried my hand at it. I'm very happy with the results!! I will admit, I was slightly intimidated at first when I got this stamped but once you break it down section by section it went really quick and easy.

7 Kids Crafting Supply Store The Greeting Farm

I'm back today to share a super fun card I made using Buddy Ian from The Greeting Farm that i purchased over at 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store. I had a lot of fun creating this! 

I started out stamping my image twice. Once on Xpress It cardstock and again on brown patterned paper. I colored up my image on the Xpress It cardstock and then on the patterned paper I cut out just the shirt. I adhered it to my colored image and colored it up a little just to add some shadows to it. 

For my base, I use a kraft cardstock. I used the Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil and applied some Walnut Stain Distress Oxide for a really cool faded background. For the sentiment, I used the same distress ink oxide and stamped it twice for a nice solid look. To finish off the card, I adhered it to a chocolate cardstock and popped up my image with foam tape.

Hope you enjoyed today's card!

Snow White Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

I have a beautiful but simple card to share with you today. This one is featuring a stamp from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. It was the Super Secret Krafty Stamp from February which means it won't be released until April .. I  think. .. haha... You can visit the Kraftin Kimmie facebook group to watch for more details at the beginning of each month. 

This stamp was so beautiful just by itself so all I did was colored it with my copics and added some layers.

Sending Sincere Thoughts card SVG Cut Club

Hello! Hello! It's my day to post over on the SVG Cut Club blog and today I'm sharing a super awesome card! All the links to the products will be provided below.

I played around with my distress ink and created this really cool background. Then I added the peeking sun from the March Bundle at SVG Cutting Files. I'm always in need of thank you cards so I used the Sincere Thanks set from Kraftin Kimmie and stamped that on my flag that I cut using the flag die from Jaded Blossom. I heat embossed it to really make it pop! And for a little added touch I added some sequin mix from Pretty Pink Posh.

7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store and The Greeting Farm

Big News!!!! Super excited to share with you today that I am now a part of the 7 Kids Design Team!!!! Woop! Woop!! If you haven't heard of them before, 7 Kids provides supplies for your crafting needs - all in the name really ... 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store... haha! 

Today is my first post as an official Design Team member and I'm sharing a bookmark I made for my daughter using The Greeting Farm.

I played around some more with my distress inks which is what I used to make the background. I went for the pinks and yellows for this one because I KNEW I wanted to use a little fairy for it.  While my background was drying, I colored up the fairy with my copics and cut it out using my Scan N Cut machine.

For the sentiment I actually heat embossed it with WOW white embossing powder using my Misti stamp tool. I have found when it comes to embossing, since the ink is clear, to stamp it twice. That gives me nice solid coverage and using my Misti is perfect to line it up perfect each time. 

Once the sentiment was complete and my fairy adhered, I laminated it. Perfect-o!! And she loves it so that's good!

All the links are provided below the picture.

Hop C.C. Designs

Hello Hello again! I'm sharing another card from the new release at C.C. Designs! I did something a little different this time with the set. 

I took the carrot from this set and flipped it OVER. Using the BACK of the stamp, I randomly stamped around my paper using second generation stamping. This is where I stamp OFF of my paper first and then go to my paper. That way it appears lighter. Once I was satisfied I had enough, I flipped the carrot back over, inked it up and stamped on top of my carrot "blob" .. lol .Sorry I don't know what other word to use but "blob". 

Next I used the sentiment "Boing!!" and stamped in between the carrots. My bunny I colored up and used the coordinating die for this set to cut him out. For my sentiment, I stamped in Versamark ink, heat embossed with Recollections White Embossing Powder and adhered to the card. I attached my bunny with some foam squares to "pop" him up a little.

Pretty cool right?!

Kitty with Chickies C.C. Designs Card

Happy Saturday! I had this little kitty all colored up for a while now and just misplaced it so it never got added to a card. Well... I finished it off last night! I used some distress inks to create a soft outdoor background for kitty and friends. I also used the clouds from one of my new dies I got from C.C. Designs. I have a youtube video on my most recent haul so be sure to check it out! Some great deals going on right now (at the time of this post!) so get them while supplies last!

And of course to top it off - I adhered the white cardstock to a foam piece for dimension because I LOVE dimension on my cards!

I need to color this cutie up some more! I love it! and the artist lines are already there which makes it that much easier. I'm thinking an orange tabby next time ....
