Just Chillin' with my Gnomies

Ok, it's Saturday, and that means a themed challenge at KKS, this week's theme??????? A SHAPED CARD!!! Gasp!
Oh the horror! I SUCK at shaped cards... I mean, square is a shape right? How about a rectangle? Well crap..... what am I supposed to do???? Why, God, WHYYYYYY?????
I did what any self respecting crafter would do in this horrible predicament..... I grabbed a cup of coffee and went straight to Pinterest.... after deciding on a workout routine, that I was going to eat only healthy food, I was re-doing my laundry room, oh and that dessert is totally happening.... oh yeah, a shaped card.... sigh..... searching, searching...... WOAH! Call off the Dogs, the search is over!

Behold....... a "shaped" card:
Yeah, yeh, yaaaahhhh.... I know, it's not really a shaped card.... but I'm going to say that this qualifies! I mean, come on! I used the incredibly cute Whimsical Gnomes set and colored them all in with my Copic markers of course. The papers are all from Doodlebug, and the felt trees are from recollections. 


I really hope you like my "card" and that it inspires you to play along.  You can be a rebel like me, and make a "shaped" card and I totally can't wait to see what you come up with! You will have until August 25th at 11:55 pm EST to get your entries in! Tootles!

All my best friends are witches!

Hi Krafty People!!!
Guess what it's time for? Yeah time for that Krafty Chamber of Secrets to crrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkk open and reveal another one of it's secrets! This time it's a set that is/was crazy popular and so incredibly cute!  It is: ALL MY BEST FRIENDS ARE WITCHES!!!!! 
I created this card by stamping this fun and spooky girl on Copic Express-it yardstick and coloring her with my Copic markers. I used Stickles glitter on the potion to make it sparkle.  I then used my Distress Oxide Inks, more Stickles, and Mixed Media yardstick from Canson for the background.  The potion paper is from Doodlebug of course and then just some cool black twine as an accent. 
Copic Markers list: E000, E00, E02, E11, R20, BV29, C7, BV23, V17, V09, V06, V12, V12, BG75, BG49, BG15, BG10, W3, W1, W0

I sure hope you like it!  So now RUN (don't walk) to claim yours today! No seriously, there's only a limited number of these available! Once those sell, you'll be put on a pre-order list, so when more are made you can still (maybe) get one.  THAT'S why you need to get one asap! AAHHHHHH!!!

Hope you all have a spooky Halloween! Tootles!

Let the good times roll

It's wednesday...... yup, mid week, we're half way there!  So pour some coffee and take a look at all of the awesome Wonderful Wednesday projects that the DT has created.  Today I'm using the super cute stamp set "Let the Good Times Roll."  It was retired for a while, but Kimmie was able to get a few sets remade in Red Rubber!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!! So, if you don't already own this set, roll on over to the KKS site and scoop one up before they are gone again!!!!

I had such a blast coloring this image, it really was fun. I used some papers from Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) that I thought really went with the image, and I cut some clouds out of various colors of white yardstick on my Cricut machine to make the clouds.  FUN!

Hope you are inspired to participate in our Wonderful Wednesday challenge as well!  As always, it's "anything goes!" So grab the closest stamp, and get to creating! I can't wait to see what you make! Tootles!

Happy Fall Y'all

Ok, so it's hop day.  By now you are in awe of all the serious cuteness that has happened this week, and perhaps you have already scooped some of them up to be your very own.  I'm here to show you one last project for the week so make sure you don't miss out on anything! he he he

I decided to use Happy Fall Y'all again to make another super "fall" feeling card!  Here she is:
This paper is from Echo Park and I thought it would just be perfect for a fall themed card.  I used a couple of black and gray circles to accent the image and colored her in orange and yellow for the season.  I also used these felt pumpkins from Martha Stewart Crafts to add a little fun to the card as well. I used twine on the sentiment to make it look like she was holding a sign! Super fun.

I hope you all have had a fun week with us, don't forget to hop around the blogs today and check out all of the Fall goodness that the DT and GDT members have created for you! Tootles!

...and here's my card:
To make this card I cut a bunch of circles using a Gina Marie die called Stitched Circles and then I used some Doodlebug paper and satin ribbon.  I also used about 5000 pop dots to add a bunch of dimension to this card.  Super fun and so bright! EEEEKKKK! Love them!

Who's ready for a release?

Oh yeah, it's release week baby!  Fall is in the air (well not really, not in Idaho at least, it's hotter than heck and totally still summer) and it's my favorite season.  I love fall because I get to enjoy the cool mornings and the warm afternoons, I get to drink coffee all day (yeah I know, I do that anyways, hush) and I have a birthday in the fall, and i get to start getting ready for Christmas!  All good things!

This release has all the good stuff about fall and you'll see over the next few days that it's all just too cute!  Here's the very first set... ready?????

Aptly named, this set is called "Happy Fall Y'all" and features a sweet little girl and all of her favorite fall things.

To make this card I started with some distress inks and a dampened sponge. I swirled the sponge on the paper after dabbing it in the ink to make that gradient background.  After letting it dry I used the pumpkin stamp from the set and stamped it all over to make the background.  I used the same sponge to add a little bit of ink to the wooden leaves as well. then I distressed the edges of the paper and glued them all in place. It was quite simple and lots of fun to make. 

Well, that's it for day one, I hope that you love this set, I'll catch ya back here tomorrow for some more release week goodness!! Don't forget to hop around to all the the DT and GDT blogs all week because one lucky commenter will receive a sweet prize at the release party on Facebook. Tootles!

I knew that I was good at it, so I enjoyed doing it.  Writing papers and solving math equations, learning a new language, it was all just fascinating to me.  So, when Kimmie posted that the Nerd set was coming back, I squealed with delight!

Wonderful (social) Wednesday

Man alive I spend a lot of time on Social Media... like my phone is permanently glued to my hand and my laptop is always near.  It's nice to unplug every once in a while, but I really miss all of my friends when I do "unplug."  It's just the society we live in today, don't fight it.... it's all gunna be ok.

With all of that being said, I was inspired to use little Miss Social Sally today for my anything goes card for the very last Wonderful Wednesday of the month.  I can't believe that July is gone and August is upon us.  Soon the kids will be going back to school and the grind of the "normal" will be back upon us.  I'm sooooo excited! ha ha ha!

Ok, so here's what I did;
This card is 5x7 and I used The Paper Studios pink textured card stock, the black and white layers are Recollections card stock. The yellow was a scrap, I have no clue what it is! Ha ha ha, just keepin' it real! The DSP is from Echo Park and I Adore it!!! I took the sentiments that came with the Social Sally stamp and inked them and put them inside all of the little thought bubbles. Then the flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts. Gosh I love their flowers! That funky paperclip I got at Wal Mart like 2 years ago, they were on clearance and I thought they were super neat! I colored up Sally with my copic on Express-it blending stock.  Here's the colors: 
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Coat: Y17, Y15, Y13, Y00
Pants: C5, C3, C2, C0
Bench: 100, W9, W7, W5, W3, W1, W0
Hair: RV66, RV19, RV06, RV09, RV02
Eyes: B41, B63, B24, B93, G00, BG000

I hope that you totally love this and that it inspires you to join in our Wonderful Wednesday Anything Goes challenge this week! You have precisely one week from today to get your cards entered over on the Kraftin Kimmie Blog, so lets see what ya got! Woohoo!

Ok, I need more coffee, and I gotta find my phone, oh there it is, on my desk, next to my computer.... sheesh.... yeah, I NEED more coffee! hahahaha!  Tootles!

I like big cups....

...and I cannot lie, you other brothers can't deny.....
 Ummm.... ok, I better stop right there... he he he! In the interest of not offending anyone I'll cease my singing and go on about the crafting! Probably a good plan huh?

Well, the day is upon us... it's SATURDAY! I sorta HATE Saturdays to be perfectly honest.... I feel lost for things to do and I feel like I gotta entertain my family and be... you know... a productive member of society.  I'm perfectly happy on any given week day, sitting in my craft room, just coloring away and singing along with Maroon 5 or something similar (and by similar I mean something completely random that i'm not going to admit to so I won't put it in writing). On the bright side though, Saturday means another Saturday Challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! Now there's something I can get excited about!  So.... Guess what? I'm the HOSTESS this week, meaning that I got to CHOOSE THE THEME! Woot woot! Can ya guess what I chose? Uh huh!
YOUA RE CHALLENGED TO USE A RETIRED STAMP!
There's been so much buzz lately about all of the older retired KKS images that I thought it would be fun to see ya ya got!  So dust off those old rubbers girls and get to crafting.  Here's the one I chose to use..... (please refer to the song above.... hehehehehe I know ya wanna sing it!) : 
This is normally where i'd list for you the Copic markers that I used to color this image, but I was so excited when I colored it that I forgot to make a note of what I used. so.... immmm... yeah.
The papers are from Doodlebug as are the enamel dots and the coffee cup paperclip.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
The ribbon is from Recollections.
The Die I used is from Gina Marie Dies. 
...and the image.... oh that wonderful image is a girl after my own heart, her name is "I like big cups" from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.

Ok, so go forth my crafty peeps and get inking up those retired stamps.  I can't wait to see what you make!  Please be sure to post your creations in the Krafty Friends FB group and don't forget to enter them in the contest on the KKS Blog.  Me? Yeah I'm heard out to get a cup of coffee.... what can I say? I love that stuff! Delicious! Tootles!

Ok so as usual I colored her up on some Express-it blending stock and I totally didn't keep track of the markers I used because..... I have a good reason, so hear me out, because..... we all know that I NEVER do pastel colors. So I had no idea whatsoever what I was doing, so I was grabbing markers left and right and using a tiny touch here and there and then blending it out and then grabbing more.  By the time I was finished my entire craft room had exploded, I even had markers on the floor under my desk.  It was a hot mess and it was a ton of fun and i IMMEDIATELY set to cleaning it all up. Ha ha ha! I can tell you that the flowers were all purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts though, does that help? he he he! 

Well, day 3 is going to be super cute, so I better see you beck here tomorrow.  Don't forget to hop around to all the Dt and guest blogs today and check out the amazing things that are posted... seriously....

Red, white and blue!

Happy Saturday!!!!!  It's also time to celebrate the 4th of July if you live in the USA.  I'm not one for fireworks and all of that stuff, but I'm always ok with a long weekend and time with my family, and by family I mean all the cute Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps images that I have.  They all have names and faces, they are just like family to me.

Today the challenge is Red, White, and Blue! I used the sweet little set called "You're Nifty" and I think little Bobby here is out on a date with little sally to celebrate the 4th of July, what do you think?

I'm sorta in the BRIGHT color mood lately.... so I took out this wicked cute stamp set that I never use (gasp)! This set is called Squishy Hugs and it just makes me laugh! 
I mean, check out the look on that cat's face! Isn't that just priceless?!?!?! I used a top note die from Stampin up! and crossitch circle dies from Gina Marie.  There's a fistful of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and of course I used my Copic markers to color up this sweet little girl and her cat. 

Ok, so bust out those Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and get to coloring!  I just can't wait to see what you create!!!
