Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 7...Oliver and Olivia...Happy Winter & Have a Cool Yule!


Hey Krafty friends, It's time for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge! So are you all set to be Krafty? Well, we have a great challenge for you this week set by Nana Diana! It's not too difficult and you'll have one more Christmas or Happy Winter card in the "done" pile! Can't beat that now, can ya!? Diana has used sweet Bernadette on her super sweet card so the lucky random winner of this week's challenge will receive Bernadette from Crissy's Cuties!
I had a great time at my friend Michelle's house last weekend and I made these two cards featuring Oliver and "Olivia", smile. I decided to make a very simple and easy to re-create sketch and used my fave MME Colourful Christmas pp and teamed it up with Prism Kraft cardstock for the base. I am going to use this basic scheme for all my Christmas cards this year! I loved using Oliver from Crissy's Cuties Collection...he is soooo super adorable, easy and fun to colour and I can change him into "Olivia" if need be, smile!
So, I stamped Oliver on ATS Copic Quality paper and coloured him with my Copics. I cut the image with my Nesties and left the image inside the Nestie and inked it with Green Chalk ink. I added my fave ribbon American Crafts and used my new Nestie Snowflakes. I embossed the cardstock with my cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and then cut the snowflakes, Inked them and added a BG Brad. The sentiment is from Kimmie's Holiday Sentiment set and I stamped it on one of the cute die cut tags that came with the MME colourful Christmas paper pack.

Here is the inside...very simple as, I want to mass produce these so I didn't go too crazy on the inside, smile! The sentiment is from Kimmie's Everyday Sentiment set.

For this card I turned Oliver into Olivia with a wave of my magic Copic marker,lol! Again, I cut her out with my Nesties, used the die as a stencil and sponged with pink Metallic rub-ons. For these snowflakes I embossed the cardstock with the snowflake Cuttlebug folder first. The sentiment is also from Kimmie's Holiday Sentiment set. Again I used my fave American Crafts ribbons and BG Brads for the snowflakes.

And once again here is the inside of the card!
Well, Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek! Make sure you go and check out all the other Krafty Girls creations too...they are super duper fabulous! I hope you can join us this week for the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge blog!
Hugs,
