Well, made a couple of kraftin kimmie cards today for a few different challenges. I just love her images, they are so whimsical and different from anthing else out there. My first card is for the kraftin kimmie challenge which is to use scallops. I used my MFT large scallop to make a double layer of scallops out of iridescent cardstock then added some lace and some paper from the new Stella and Rose paper pads. I added some glossy accents to the teapot and her cup and saucer to make it shiny and pop a little bit. Her cheeks look a little flushed in this photo, perhaps there is a little bit more than just tea in the little kettle! This is going to a new friend of mine who isn't feeling well, hope it brightens her day.
This is my second card for today, also a kraftin kimmie image but this is for the Simon Says Stamp challenge which is a recipe and for the ABC Challenge which is to use pink and...I could win more kraftin kimmie stamps! I don't have any from the new release so am crossing my fingers! This is an old paper pad I got on clearance at Michaels, some metallic pink dots from www.ladybugcraftsink.blogspot.com and a pink polka dot rose I have been hoarding for awhile now. I have to say I am getting better at using some of my supplies as I get a little more confidant with my cardmaking. I hated to use up beautiful paper and embellishments and then hate the layout or the coloring on the image. Oh, and while we are at it, does anyone else hate double sided paper that is beautiful on both sides so then you hate to use it and cover up the pretty paper. Make it ugly on one side I say so I don't mind hiding it!
