Good morning crafty friends! I am back again with another card to share with you! This time I made this card for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge which is Floral Fantasy! I used one of my adorable little Pure Innocence Girls for this card. This cutie is actually from the Easter stamp set, My Basket of eggs, but I covered the eggs in her basket with Flower Soft. I also paper pieced her dress with Scenic Route pp and coloured the rest of the image with my Copics and cut her out and pop-dotted her on the Nestie rectangle.

Kathy's gorgeous cards and I e-mailed her about it. Well, I went in search of some on Etsy as Kathy told me she had found some there and then I discovered that I had some Martha Stewart seam binding in my stash all this time....score! I also found videos on YouTube on how to crinkle your own seam binding and you can also dye it with Glimmer Mist too....check it out here and here....it's super easy and looks fabulous!
So, I made this card with Echo Park pp again and added some bling, Prima flowers and Mellisa Frances rub-on sentiments to finish it off.
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a peek at my first Kenny K card...I think you will be seeing more as I definitely love these funky images.
Have a stampin' great day!

Paislee Queen Bee paper again as I just love it and it is the perfect papers for my friend's, sister's wedding....such a gorgeous colour combo. I have been dieing to ink up this sweet stamp of Tilda and Edwin tying the knot....love the beach theme to this image....so romantic. I made my easel card 6x6 from Colorbok cardstock and I used the Magnolia Doohickey border die Tilda's lace...just love this border it is soooo pretty and the dies work like a dream. I also used some American Crafts fabric rose trim....in a buttery yellow and it is just so scrumptious!
ons and I really love the sentiment on the bottom of the easel card, it is a chipboard sentiment by Colorbok.
Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card today!

JM sentimental challenge as I just got this great My Favourite Things die and stamp set, Di-namics Framed Greetings and stamps set and I used one of the sentiments from this MFT promo set....perfect for this challenge! I also used some new paper that I picked up at Stampin' Bella the other day after I went to the migraine doc. I just absolutely adore this delish paper called Echo Park Paper Co. this collection is called Life is Good...it sure is, with gorgeous paper like this, to play with,smile!
And, of course, I used a sweet Magnolia image, Tilda with three flowers, from the Hoppy Easter collection. I coloured the image with my Copics, cut it out and adhered it with pop-dots. I added some American Crafts ribbon, Prima flowers and half pearls to finish it off. I also spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Gold just to give it a soft sparkle.

Hey crafty friends! Glad you could pop by for the new Challenge we have at the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog! We would like to see just how creative you can get....we would like you to make a fun door hanger! Just remember you need to use a Whiff of Joy image to be eligible for any prize that we may be offering up! The WOJC DT has such gorgeous and creative ideas for you!!! I am sure you will be inspired to join the fun!!!So here is my door hanger...there is a little story to go along with this creation...well, as you know we have been on several camping trips this summer...so on our trip to Arrowhead Provincial Park we stopped at a cute Cottage/beachy type shop and both Hannah and I ended up getting theses adorable flip flops...we got the same ones except mine are brown and black.
aren't they cute...well, When I saw the little chipboard hanger that they were on I knew I had the perfect use for it too! I love using beautiful clothing tags and re-purposing package for my crafty creations.BasicGrey Precision file set. It really comes in handy to get into the tight spots. I then coloured up this adorable image of Henry basking in the sun with a cool adult beverage in "paw",lol! I made the little panel from Colorbok cardstock and cut two and glued them together to make it a little more sturdy. I hung it with some ribbon from the hanger and I punched all the holes with my Crop-A-Dile...even the ones in the very thick chipbord hanger...could not live without my Crop-A-Dile!!!!
I used my bow easy for the first time...well, I have attempted it before but with no luck! So, I looked up a video on YouTube and plunked down in front of the computer and followed along step by step! YAY! I finally have me a bow easy bow...well two in fact!!! I embellished with a few Prima flowers, and pearls and printed the message on the computer. The top sentiment "Fun in the Sun" is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Well, I am really happy how this turned out...I have to confess this is not my front door...mine doesn't look that good, he, he,he! So, I drove over to my mom and dad's to take the pic. Well, my Dad even loved this little creation of mine! He called me to ask where I put it, after I left his place and I said I brought it home with me...he was so disappointed! I think he really likes little Henry.
Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my door hanger...I hope you can join us at the Whiff of Joy Challenge!

I needed to make a card for a girl at work. She has been working in our office on contract and she just found out that she has been accepted into the Interpreter Internship Program...very exciting for her but means she will be leaving us soon. Well, I thought I would make her a card to congratulate her on this wonderful accomplishment and exciting new journey to furthering her career goal to becoming an interpreter. It was also a chance for me to play along with some of my favorite challenges!
I used the gorgeous sketch that they have over at Friday Sketchers and I'm also entering this card in the challenge at Just Magnolia...Acetate, the challenge over at Magnolia Down Under...easel card and the challenge at Cute card Thursday...Whateva!!!
Inge gets around the edges of her images but I don't have any of those fab grunge stamps that she has so I looked around my room and tried to find something that would work. I found a camouflage background stamp from a Technique Tuesday set. I thought I would see what that would look like. It was a little risky as I had already coloured my image. I wasn't happy at first but as the Distress ink in Old Paper dried it started to look a little better.
The sketch called for a tag and so I used one of the many clothing tags that I keep and re-purposed it on this card. The cute flowers where on clearance and I think they were 25 cents for a package of 4. For the acetate I used QuicKutz Adhesive Clear Plastic Material and die cut the QuicKutz butterflies and then coated the adhesive side with Glamour Dust. The sentiments are from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Hope you have a stampin' great day!
