KKS153-Holiday Cheer

Happy Saturday crafty peeps!! It's time for this week's Kraftin' Kimmie challenge...and well, the Krafty Girls are making a scene!! Not literally, but I wouldn't put it past this crazy bunch of girls!! We are creating a scene using our Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, and whatever else we need to make them. This week's hostess is Melanie, and she used Meowy Christmas, so that is what this week's prize will be!!

For my card tonight, I used the GORGEOUS Nettie stamp set. She is the PERFECT party hostess, complete with bottle of wine, so I had to give her a sparkly dress!! She was stamped on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored with my Copics. I added the sparkle to her dress using my Sakura Glitter pen...I wanted it to look like sequins. The wood floor was hand drawn in with my Copic Multiliner pen. I layered my image with Black Licorice cardstock, and embellished with some bling swirls. My ribbon is Silky Crushed ribbon in black from the Ribbon Carousel, and I used Michael's brads, hemp cord, and a spiral clip as well.  For the base, my paper is from the MME All is Bright paper pad, which I paired with Cranberry Crisp and Fossil cardstock.

Here is a close up picture of my image, so you can see some of the sparkle!

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day! Be sure to check out the Krafty Blog for a full list of girls playing along this week!!!

Crazy 4 Anything But a Card

This week's challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog was to make anything but a I made more tags! Not only are tags SUPER simple to make, they add so much to a gift you are giving...makes them more personal, yes?

For my tags, I started by cutting the tag bases with the MFT Tag You're It Die-namics and some Sweet Tooth cardstock. I used the MME Christmas pad, and some Black Licorice cardstock for my paper strip. The Fancy Flourish Die-namics in Gumdrop Green and Wild Cherry embellish the tag bases, along with some Gumdrop Green Grosgrain, Charcoal Twine, and Red Jute Twine.

My images are from the There She Goes No Peeking set. I stamped them on circles cut from X-Press It blending card, and then colored them with my Copics. They were cut out using the MFT Circle Die-namics.

Well, that is it for me for now! Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a great day! Be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to check out my teammates AMAZING projects!!
