Wahoo, it's the weekend! And it's crafty weekend on top of it all. My peeps and I get to stamp all day! Well all day til I get to be at church for another cardsigning party at least. But I'll party hearty til then!
And today's the release of yet another challenge at the Crafty Contagion blog - which is the lil blog our stamp club does together! I would LOVE it if you would play along on the challenge...it's to make a SPRING card. Whatever that means to you...we're loose with our interpretations! Here's mine...the fact that lil hedgie is running around with a flower says spring to ME....because my tulips are peeking out already! I even had them peering through the snow we had this week - crazy weather!
PS Paper by BoBunny. Hedgie by Penny Black. Black polkadotted strip is washi tape. Thickers by....Thickers.
Have a SUPAH SATURDAY! And with any luck I'll have a HUGEamongous surprise for you on my blog tomorrow morning. That's the plan at least. :)
It's Friday! This week can't be done fast enough....I have a crazylong to-do list and really would love to get busy ticking things off. Yikes! But alas....such is the life. I'd so love to be fishing like this little kid and his frog buddy!!
The stamp is one I picked up when I was in Puerto Rico by a company called Little Darlings - colored with Copics. Paper is Echo Park....and I am ready for the weeeeeeeeeekend! How about you? Got big plans? Tomorrow is Diva Day with my stamp club....all day crafting!!!! Bring it on!
It's Thursday...one day closer to the weeeeeekend!! Wahooo! And I've got a little treat for you...another card using the sketch for this week. Abigail is colored with Copics, trimmed out....and popped. Paper is from Studio Calico...cute little apples that go with Abigail's dress!
On Facebook yesterday, Jennifer asked the gang for a challenge to get her going. Raeanna came up with this one: Use three different pattern paper, 3 embellishments, 3 layers, 3 techniques and 3 ribbons/twine. Oh MY! I think I did it, though check me to be sure....image by Kraftin Kimmie.
How'd I do? Or should I say "overdo"? Maybe "icantstopembellishing.com" really does need to be my url!
On the Stars and Stamps blog today, I have a tutorial for this card format posted...this one uses a DigiDoodle image as well as the ones in the tutorial! Go play along and see if you can win a gift certificate to DDS! :)
The image was printed twice, and I colored both - popping his head, ears, and bandana. Dies are all by Sizzix, the little white dots are made with an Inkssentials white pen. Star punch by Fiskars as well as the straight scallop border punch. The rest is straight up cardstock, no patterned paper here.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
Happy Monday! Okay, okay, I'm trying for optimism here. The weekend was not even nearly long enough! I was locked into the computer all weekend long....learning Wordpress! Now, don't be frightened, once a site gets set up its way easy. And setting up just a blog page is super easy. But...the trouble is in putting a full site together. Hmmm what site might that be? lol. Anyway...I'm not nearly done but am very excited about the possibilities!
And...I got a few cards made! This one is something I dared our Facebook fans to do...combine the ODBD challenge (I picked piercing, layers, and funfold) with this week's sketch! This is a kitty stamp that I've had for eons, no idea who made it; the rubber is so dry and cracked it's about ready for the trash bin! But the kitty is colored like Punch...recognize him? Paper is by Jilliebean Soup :)
Hope you all have a fanTASTIC weekend!! Craft on!
I've been thinking about this for a long long long time...and I think it's time.
I'm going to make some changes to my blog.
Yep. I know I tried a different template a while back, etc, but...that only whet my appetite for things that I can't do here on Blogger. I'm going to be making the leap and changing to Wordpress, and doing some other new things when I get there....It's scary since I've spent all this time building my following here, and all of you have been so so so good to me! I love having you all visiting me all the time...and I want to give back even more to you. But that means changing things up a bit.
First though I need a name. So.....I need ideas!!
- I want to buy a url so the name can't be taken....
- I also don't want one where the .com is taken but .org is available etc - I want to buy up the fleet of names so I can redirect them all to the main url.
- Name should be short and memorable....and easily spellable. "colourful" has been a problem for me all this time so I want noncontroverial spellings.
- If it had something to do with Psalm 139:14 it'd be a bonus. That's my life verse: I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. It's a verse that reminds me that no matter what anyone else says, God made me, and He done good!
- A name involving crafts, creativity, etc would also be a bonus. I'm ok with a general interpretation, lots of the good site names have been taken!
- Did I say short? Yeah.
- Punny would work too. As long as it made sense pretty immediately.
- Words that portray what you think my style is would work too. Is there one word you think of when you think of me or my cards?
Kraftin Kimmie gave us a whole mess of stamps - pirates!! However when I was making a bunch of quick cards for thankyous, I only had this other KK image colored....and it was cute enough I went with it :) Paper by Studio Calico, sentiment by SRM, Nesties by Spellbinders.
