Kraftin Kimmie Selfie

Decided to go for the full black and white feel. But, Boy do I hate colouring the skin this way. I end up going way too dark. But here she is anyway. The stamp is Oh Snap! from Kraftin Kimmie, and the sentiment comes with her. The papers are oldies from Papermania. I kinda followed the April Sketch from Kraftin Kimmie. I am entering this into the Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge where the theme is Black and White. Think this just about covers that. Haha. I am also entering her into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge where the theme is Use a Sentiment.

Kraftin Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday

Boy have I been busy making these cards this last wee while. But it wont likely last much longer. I've a weeks holiday next week, so the mojo will go on holiday too probably. Anyway, my card for today is for the Wonderful Wednesday Challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie where they have an anything goes theme. I was making it for their Saturday Challenge - black and white, but have decided to make a fully black and white card. Might have to change my mind later mind you. I hate colouring skin in greys/blacks. The image is called Going Places. The papers are Papermania from many years ago. A huge pad, so have still loads to get through. The sentiment is a stamp from Whimsy Stamps here. A little bit of ribbon, wee rhinestones and a ribbon slider to finish. I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and even remembered to post it in time this time. Haha. I am also going to enter it into the Papertake Weekly Challenge where there are several things to choose from. I went with the colours White plus one (excluding skin and hair)

The Sugar Bowl 123 again

Oops, I forgot this was the Sketch Saturday Sketch. And - yes - I've missed it. But never mind, I can still enter it into the Sugar Bowl Challenge. This wee cutie is from Sugar Nellie and is in their retiring rubber range, so I'm guessing once they are gone, they are gone. You can get her here. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions. The papers are really old and were freebies from a magazine. The mushroom is a Magnolia die. I thought they looked real sweet, but they are much bigger than I thought they would be. This is the smaller one of the two.

Kraftin Kimmie #276 = Twine

I decided to make a chocolate/bottle tag thing today. I recently bought this Kraftin Kimmie image called Nettie which I thought would be good for them. And another (or at least one) item towards Christmas. I got the tutorial from here.  I am entering it into the Challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie where they want you to use some twine. I have used a little bit in the button. The papers are real again from Dovecraft - although I do have them in digital too. I am also going to enter it into the challenge over at Papertake Weekly where they want to see Cute as a button - either a button or cute. Lucky I used a button eh. Oh, almost forgot. Am entering it into the Sweet Stampin Challenge - Anything but a card.

Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Party

Another Gorjuss Girl card. I do love me Gorjuss Girls. I have a few all coloured up and ready for cards. But I liked the colouring, so couldn't bring myself to put them on cards. But as my colouring is improving I thought just go for it. For this one, I have used a Personal Impression stamp called New Heights. This one is from the clear stamp set. It is slightly smaller than the rubber (hmm - yes I have both rubber and clear). But I can only find her in the Do Crafts range (no - I haven't got this one - yet). Anyway, I am going to enter her into the Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl Challenge. The papers are real and are from GCD Studio - Ella Blue, which I have had for a while, but am slowly getting through. The sentiment is also Personal Impressions and a couple of MFT diecut buttons. I actually used the sketch from Sketch Saturday but missed the deadline oops.
I am also entering her into the ABC Challenge - H for Happy Birthday.

Kraftin Kimmie #274

I decided to get my Copics out and have a wee play. I so need to practice more with them. Although I am quite impressed with my colouring on this one I am more comfortable using my Polychromos pencils, but like the results with the Copics. So I guess it's gonna be practice, practice, practice for me eh. But I also will have to invest in some more colours because I don't have loads of colours other than skin and hair. Well I have a nice pink combo that I can use, but you get a bit fed up colouring everything pink - haha. Anyway - onto my card. The image is from Kraftin Kimmie stamps. The paper's are from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Carolina Coast by Melissa bennett. The seashells are a die from Marianne designs. I have followed the April sketch from the Kraftin Kimmie Blog and would like to enter it into their challenge where the theme is to decorate the inside. So I'll give you a little peak of the inside.

I would also like to enter it into the challenge over at Papertake Weekly where the theme is anything goes.

Tiddly Inks #154

I managed to get another card made. I know shocking isn't it. I decided to make a card for the challenge over at Tiddly Inks where the theme is Anything Goes. I have a few all coloured up, so thought I would use one of them. The papers are downloads from Sweet Shoppe Designs - A whimsical Garden by Kristen Cronin Barrow. The fence is a Magnolia die, the clouds by Memory Box and the mushrooms are Cottage Cutz Crafts. I added a few red gems, but think they might have been better clear. But hey Ho, they are stuck now. I also want to enter it into the ABC Challenge which is go digital. I can do that. Image is digital by Tiddly Inks and the papers are digital too.

Cute Card Thursday #367

I have wanted to make one of these box card thingies for ages. I even downloaded the instructions, but can't find them now. But when I came across a magazine with it in I just had to give it a go. And it was actually quite simple. But it soo didn't turn out like it was in my head. But I'm likin it anyway. The papers are from one of these fill your box type of places. The image and sentiment is from Slinky Tart. I am entering her into the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme is buttons and bows.

Gorjuss Girls

I just love all things Gorjuss. And it all started when Sugar Nellie brought them out as stamps. Now they aren't made by Sugar Nellie, but are still cute. They are now made by Do Crafts, but you can still get them from Funky Kits - the home of Sugar Nellie. They have a few of their own left and some from Personal Impressions from when they did them. I have sooo many of them, but never too many - haha. This one is from Do Crafts and is called Ladybird - but typical I can't find her in the shop. The papers are also Gorjuss Girl papers. I am entering her into the Gorjuss 2000 Party over at Sugar Nellie.

The Sugar Bowl 123

This card had me thinking. I was asked to make a card for a 9 year old boy. All the images I could think of I thought were either too old or too young. But - hey - Sugar Nellie to the rescue. I decided that everyone loves dogs and what boy doesn't like texting, so we used this wee Guy. Coloured with polychromos and blended with Sansador and paper stumps. The papers are a huge pad from My Minds Eye. Another of my years old stash. So I am entering him into the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl where the theme is anything goes.
