Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 14...Time Passes...!


Thanks for coming back to see my Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge card! Today the uber talented Krafty Girl, Donna Wardle from sunny Australia has set the challenge and I have to say that it was definitely a challenge for me!!!! I sure did struggle with this one!!! Donna is asking us to "keep it simple"...that means NO embellies....NO flowers, No buttons, No brads and NO ribbon!!! Only hand made paper embellies and you can use your punches and stitching. Okay now if you felt a little light headed at the sounds of that, then have a seat...that feeling passes, trust me! Now if I can do it, you can do it too, lol!!!! Now, Donna has used the sweet Lavinia on her card so if you join the challenge and use a KKS image on your creation you will be entered and could be the random winner of a KKS Lavinia stamp from the Steampunk collection by Annie Rodrigue!

For my card I used the beautiful Tree Fairy image from Crissy's Cuties collection and the sentiment is from the Steampunk sentiments set! I coloured the Tree fairy with Copics and Twinkling H2Os and cut it out and pop-dotted on the oval! I used American Crafts cardstock and BasicGrey Origins 6x6 pp and my Fiskars Apron lace border punch!

Well, I did mange to survive this challenge and actually enjoyed it....you will note there is not an inch of American Crafts ribbon and not even one little Prima flower on this card, smile! I did attempt some faux stitching which is a bit wonky...just pretend like you didn't notice, lol!


Here is the inside of my card! I really did have fun with this one...thanks Donna for really making this challenge a tough one but lots of fun, smile!!!

I am really looking forward to seeing all your cards sans embellies and make sure you check out all the other Krafty Girls cards too over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges blog!

Thanks for coming back for another wee peek!!!!

Hugs,
