A Christmas Theme at The Challenge!

Hi Everyone and Welcome to another challenge at The Challenge!

I hope you find a little bit of time to craft during this busy Thanksgiving week.  We have a great challenge for you this week- 'Christmas'- helping you to get ready for the Christmas season ahead!

I could not wait to ink this stamp up!  I have really become smitten with the Unity Girls and this angel was calling my name!  :)
Your theme this week is 'Christmas'~

I colored 'Maria Girl' with Copics, created a mask and sponged the background.  The sentiment is heat embossed with black ep and is from another one of Unity Stamps set, All is Calm All is Bright.
Now it is your turn!  Check out the amazing inspiration from the rest of the team and from our guests.  I hope you can get inky and link up with us this week!

Thanks so much cor stopping by and have a very Blessed Thanksgiving!

Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Embossing!

Hello and Happy Saturday!
and this week we want to see embossing!  

I continue to have so much fun with one of the latest Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Sets,
Happy Winter Days~

I cannot get enough of this adorable fox!  The sentiment is from another new set, 'No Peeking'.
I was inspired by several current challenges in blogland, besides the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge- 'embossing'.
I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches~

And was inspired by this cute inspiration photo from  Curtain Call~


I used the colors from Color Throwdown~

I embossed with gold embossing paste, using my Holly stencil.  I really like how this turned out.
I hope you do too!
Don't forget to check out all of the fab inspiration from the rest of the team on the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog.  Also, have you checked out the Frugal Friday Specials?  There are some fantastic deals there, so check it out!

Wonderful Wednesday with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Happy Hump Day, Everyone!

It is time for a new Wonderful Wednesday 'Anything Goes' challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  It is also time to kick Christmas card crafting into high gear!

I adore this Gift Wrapping Elf image!  I think we should ALL enjoy the Christmas Season this much!   I watercolored the background with Peerless watercolors and stamped my sentiment from The Magic of Christmas set over that and over the image.
Where did all that sparkle come from, you ask?  From my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush!

Hop on over the the blog for more inspiration from the Design Team and link up YOUR creation!

Smooch the Pooch!

Hi Everyone!

I know it is not even Thanksgiving yet, and here I am making a Valentine's Day Card.
Valentine's cards are the most requested card where I work,  so I try to have a good batch of them come February!  :D

I pulled out a stencil and my Brilliant Red Brusho powder.  Penciled the stencil hearts, then watercolored them.  Outlined the hearts with a Copic multiliner. 
Colored my long time, no see, Unity pooch (Copics) and fussy cut him out.  I used this month's
Unity Sketch~

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

Have a blessed Sunday!

Tonight is the Night for the New Release!

Hi Everyone and Welcome to Our 6th and Final Day of Sneak Peeks for the
November Kraftin' Kimmie Release!

Today's set, Let's Celebrate, is wonderfully versatile- New Year's, wedding- any formal event.
When I first saw the set, I saw a bride and groom saying their vows.  Now, I don't know any couples who have said their vows with champagne in their hands so I had to figure a way to work around that.
So trendy, a shaker card seemed the answer.  I cut my shaker window so that the champagne was removed from the scene and left what appears to be a bride and groom facing each other saying their vows.
I die cut a congrats from brushed gold card stock and adhered it to the shaker window.
