Good morning Krafty friends! Is it just me or did this week just zip by at breakneck speed or what? I didn't even get around to visiting all my lovely krafty peeps like I wanted too. I will make sure to pop by and say hi very soon though!
Well, today I'm sharing the card I made for the fun challenge that we have this week at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog! Firstly, I wanted to say, I did take a look at all the gorgeous cards submitted for my KKStamps Fiary Tale challenge last week. WOWZERS!!! You all made such beautiful cards and it was amazing to see all the beautiful and creative uses of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Well, I hope you join us again this week as the uber talented, Krafty Girl, Melanie, has set the challenge and this week Melanie would like us to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle...this is such a fun challenge!!! Melanie has used the gorgeous Stella Strawberry from the new January release, on her creation, you must check it out, her project and her colouring are simply divine and what a fabulously krafty project! If you join us and use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your creation then you will be entered into the random draw to win a Stella Strawberry stamp of your very own.
So, onto my card....I have to admit I wasn't all that creative with my 3 R's for this one but I am still quite happy with how my card turned out. I coloured up this sweet image, Rebecca Rasperberry with my Copics and I used my PrismaColored pencils and OMS to add in the blue shadowing and grass, Michele Krafty Girl, Boyer. I also used my new beloved "splotch" stamp from Frog's Whiskers ink stamps and stamped with Memento Dessert Sand ink. I love the way this splotch looks and have always admired this effect on Inge's beautiful cards where I've "lifted" this idea from, hope you don't mind, hun! I decided to team up Rebecca with some 12X12 BasicGrey Bittersweet papers that I had in my stash for a while and I also thought this brown grosgrain ribbon would be perfect for my card! It was from the packaging of my Prima Painterly flowers and was perfect for my recycled item, in keeping with this week's challenge. I also, "reused" or more like "repurposed" some ugly dollar store chipboard photo turns and covered them with the BG Bittersweet paper. I already had this Catslife Press stamp label stamped out on BG Bittersweet paper so I used it too and I added some Pretty pink Prima Painterly flowers with brown glittery domes and some Sakura Stardust pen to finish it off. The bottom sentiment actually comes with the sweet Stella Strawberry.
Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I really hope you can join us this week! Please make a stop by the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge blog for links to all the Krafty Girls cards.
