Kit and Clowder's Craft for Clearwater Event:

Hi everyone!  Two posts from me in one day, how crazy is that?!?! :)  When Alyce over at Kit and Clowder invited me to guest design for a big event she's having over on the Facebook group, I was so honored and of course said yes.


To celebrate over 6,000 members over at the Kit and Clowder Facebook Page, Alyce is throwing a huge celebration this weekend.  Beautiful artwork, free images, and, you get to support an incredibly worthwhile cause.  Here is my guest design card using one of the images you can get by making a minimum donation to this worthwhile cause:



This is an image Alyce had commissioned just for this event by the super talented YamPuff.  This image was a dream to color.  I of course colored her with my copics.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: RV10, R81, R83, R85, R89
Blues: BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Dolphin: W2, W4, W6, W8

I used my Tim Holtz spritzer with a distress marker to create the blue border around the image.  My DP is from MME.  I added a ribbon with some bling and some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.  What do you think?

Please head over to the Kit and Clowder Facebook Page to read all about this worthwhile cause.  If you would like to donate go HERE.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by.  Hugs!

Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks Day 4 - A Little Greeting

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!  I cannot tell you  how glad I am that the weekend is here.  I've been battling a horrible sinus infection all week and I'm so glad to have some time to just put my feet up and rest this weekend.

 
We are back again with a very special stamp set for Day FOUR of the  Kraftin' Kiimmie Stamps MAY 2015 previews!!! Today the Krafty Girls and guests are thrilled to share with you....ITTY BITTY FRIENDS!!  This is a fun new stamp set featuring some of our original images by artist, Annie Rodrigue! It includes SEVEN images that are about 1.5 inches tall each plus some tiny sentiments AND some handcrafted by sentiments to add to the backs of your krafty kreations!! The exciting thing about this set is that five of the seven images are no longer available at the larger size and are retired but now you can get them again in this fun mini size!!



You'll find so many amazing creations on today's hop featuring all the new images and sentiments from this adorable new set! We know you are just going to fall in love with ITTY BITTY FRIENDS and you'll be inspired as you check them out today!! Here's my card:


I decided to create just a mini 4"x 4" card.  But there are so many possibilities: tiny notecards, recipe cards, bookmarks . . . the possibilities are endless.  For my card, I of course colored the image with copics.  I chose to color mini Lucy because she's one of my absolute favorites (I'm a HUGE book worm).  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E53, E25, E29
Pinks: R81, R83, R85, R89
Blue: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Browns: E42, E43, E44, E47

The fancy square backing the image was cut out using the Fleur de Lis square dies by Spellbinders.  My DP is from MME.  I added some twine for a finishing touch.  The perfect little sentiment is from the set.  What do you think? 

Below you will find all the Krafty Girls and Guests who have goodies to show you today and while you're visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN some $$ to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!

Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks Day 2: Treasured Memories

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday!  Welcome back to day TWO of our May Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Peeks!!! Have you been enjoying the peeks so far?? We've got more beauties for you today!


Now, no one likes to have to make a sympathy card but as cardmakers, it something we all must do. And having some beautiful designs in our stash to let people know that we are thinking of them during those difficult times is so important. That's what today's preview is all about. We are so happy to share the newest set of elegant sentiments by artist BECKY PEARCE and it is called SINCERE SYMPATHY!! This set includes EIGHT lovely sentiments and you'll see them all as you hop around the blogs today! Here is the full set:


And here is my card:


For my card, I really wanted the gorgeous sentiment to be the star of the show so I kept things very simple (very unusual for me, I know! :) ).  I just love all of these sentiments, Becky does such a great job with the fonts.  Truly elegant and heartfelt.  For the card, I ran the white cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The DP is from Hobby Lobby (from The Paper Co.).  Very simple, but very elegant I think.  What do you think?

Are you planning to join us for our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!!! Hope you can join us for all the fun and excitement and prizes Saturday night beginning at 6pm EST!! Hope you can come hang out with us!

All the Krafty Girls and Guests listed below have lots of beautiful designs to show you featuring these gorgeous new stamps from Becky! And while you're hopping around, be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away a gift card!!! You could WIN some Krafty $$$ to spend at the shop!!!! {This winner will be announced at the party on Saturday!}.  That's it from me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Happy hoppin'!
