CYCI#130-Celebrate, Birthday Style!

Hey there stampers, and welcome to this week's Can You Case It challenge!! This week's challenge is one that anyone can play along it....because it's a BIRTHDAY CHALLENGE!! 

If you head to the CYCI blog you will see two different graphics, one for a "Make a Birthday Card" and the other is more of a Sketch. I kind of played off of both. I was definitely inspired by the sketch, but then went on my own way....and wound up here!


My image is from the super cute Bring On The Cake set from The Cat's Pajamas! I used the Celebration Toppers CutUps, too, which make any card extra fun. 



Well, that is it for me for today! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my stuff, and I hope to see you playing along with this awesome challenge!

Have a great day!!

Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday Challenge-Summer

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

This week's challenge is a summer theme, so I choose to play along using the super cute Oceans of Love set paired with some Doodlebug Let's Be Mermaids paper.


I colored my octopii(still having the debate with myself/the internet over how to spell/make octopus plural) in some bright colors to make my DP. They were then layered on top of circles cut out of with the Open Scallop Doily Die-namics and some White cardstock from Michael's. All my embellishments are my norm: buttons, ruffled ribbon, brads...you know.
 .

CYCI#128-A Christmas Sketch

Hey there stampers and welcome to this week's Can You Case It Challenge!! This week's challenge is a sketch, and I LOVE a good sketch challenge, so I had a little fun with it!!


I had to make a Christmas card earlier this week, and I thought, you know what....make another one, get ahead, YOU CAN DO IT!! So, I used a set from The Cat's Pajamas called Bunny Christmas!  My paper is from Carta Bella, and I paired it with Berrylicious and Sour Apple from MFT, and Lollipop from Bazzill. My embellishments are buttons from MFT, some twine from Lawn Fawn, silver brads, and some gingham ruffled ribbon.



Well, that is it for me for today! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my stuff, and I hope to see you playing along with this awesome challenge!

Have a great day!!
