Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 68....Twine or Floss.

Oh happy day! YAY!!! It's Saturday can't wait to get krafty today!!! It is also time for another fun challenge this week over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge! Jeanne has set an awesome challenge this week. I am totally loving the new Baker's Twine trend! Have you jumped on the Twine bandwagon too!? Love it!!! Well, Jeanne would like to see Twine or Floss or any type of string, for that matter, on you card or creation.  Jeanne has used Stella Strawberry on her stunning card and if you join in on the challenge this week and you have used a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamped image you will be entered into the random draw to win a Stella Strawberry stamp of your very own. How cool is that!? Very, I know!!!!!

So, my card didn't exactly turn out how I had envisioned it!  I was going to put both Richie and Judy on the front of the card together but they didn't fit and I didn't want to not use Richie. Especially, after I coloured him up and he was lookin' so cute and all, so I put him on the inside of the card. 

I made my card base 6x6 from Kraft cardstock and used October Afternoon scraps of paper from the Fly a Kite, Cherry Hill and The Thrift Shop collections. I used some cotton lace trim and Maraschino Twinery Twine with a BasicGrey button. I stamped up Judy from the New Moonlight Whispers 50's inspired release and coloured her with my Copics. I love her to bits and wanted to colour her with dark hair this time as she reminds me so much of Katy Perry!!! I used my Tim Holtz paper Distressing tool to rough up the edges of the red American Crafts cardstock and I also used my Kelly Panacci stitching stamps with Vintage Photo Distress ink. 

Here is the inside of my card...I think Richie from the new Moonlight Whispers, 50's Inspired release is super cute him in his letter Jacket!! The sentiments are Melissa Frances rub-ons and I also used a Catslife Press label. Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you can join us this week at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge. Please swing by the KKSC blog and take a look at all the gorgeous cards the Krafty Girls have whipped up!

Happy Kraftin'!!!!

Love the way you've given a feminine feel to the front witht he lace & the floral pattern & a more masculine feel to the inside. The kraft with stitching stamps is so effective & I'm impressed with the use of scraps - shall have to give that a go myself.
