Inspirational Wednesday - Kraftin" Kimmie Stamps!


Every Wednesday the Krafty Girls showcase one of their favourite stamp sets from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and it's my turn, so I picked the just released rubber stamp "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".
I coloured the image with Polychromos Pencils.  The designer papers are from the Perfectly Plaid and Watercolor Wishes paper pads from Lawn Fawn.  The hearts and enamel dots are by Doodlebug.  I finished the card by adding lace and ribbon.  A very feminine card perfect for a birthday!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

For my Anything But A Card project I made Gift Card Purses.  Aren't they just so sweet!! The paper I used for the body of the purse is from the K and Company paper pad.  I also used the dotted paper from YNS.  For the flap and handle I used a Spellbinder dies.  I found a printable template online for the large bow.  Then I finished it off with a flower and a white pearl.  I used Velcro to close the lid. 
The gift card is added to the inside of the purse.  Here are a few pictures.


The Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps I used are from the stamp set Kick Assy Birthday and Birthday Bianca.  To create the gift card holder I used the Lift A Flap die from Lawn Fawn.


This is a close up of the gift card holder.  These purses were quite easy to do.  There are lots of templates on Pinterest.  I changed how and where I put my gift card but either way is good. 
A few more pictures of the purses.




Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you can join our Anything But A Card challenge with us this month!!  Have a great week!

Aren't these little dinosaurs just the cutest!!  So I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with these guys then I saw a video for lollipop holders.  I didn't have the die that the person used so I decided to make my own.  I had a lightbulb moment....lol.  Once I coloured the images with Copics I cut them out and popped them up on a small scalloped round die.  The paper and enamel dots are by Doodlebug.  I added some ribbon to finish the holder. For the dinosaur with the balloon I used a small piece of wire to make it look like it was floating in the air.  Here are a few close up pictures.



You could change up the papers and make these for little girls.  By the way there are tootsie pops inside the holders. Yum Yum!!!!

I just love this stamp...don't you?  I decided to colour the image with Polychromos pencils instead of Copics.  I layered the image using the Scalloped Rectangle die from Frantic Stamper.  The designer paper is from the Echo Park - Fashionista paper pad.  I decided that once I added the sentiment I would call it finished!  I wanted the image to be the focal point!

It's that time already...it seems the months are just flying by!!  This is a great stamp set to kick off release week.  The floral designer paper I used is from K and Company and the plain designer paper I believe is from Doodlebug.  I made the tag using the YNS Small Tag die and then used a Lacy Edger die from Frantic Stamper to create the fancy bottom to the tag.  Then I used cardstock behind the tag to add colour and make it sturdier.  I finished it off with flowers, ribbon and twine.  These are perfect for any girlie birthday!  I have some close up pictures of each card.
