Keep Cozy With Kraftin’ Kimmie

A wonderful theme and challenge for a cold winter day here in Canada!  This week challenge #159 at Kraftin' Kimmie is “Keep Cozy” – create a card/project with a warm theme or color scheme.

I’ve used a rubber stamp from the “Lulu And Friends” collection.  What’s cosier than being in your favourite pyjamas and slippers and hugging your teddy-bear!  I also chose to use warm colors; yellows, oranges and yellowish-green. 

It’s been a great month guest designing with the super talented ladies from Kraftin Kimmie rubber stamps.  Thank you all so much! 

Have a wonderful week-end everyone!

Challenges:

Fun With Shapes And More – #123 Hearts.

Circus Trinkets 1
At first I was going to color him in, but I liked the non-colored image better on this card, but there are so many possibilities with this trinket.  I got a close-up for you.

Guest Designer for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

I am thrilled and excited to be a guest designer for the month of December with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  It’s a little intimidating to work with the incredibly talented Krafty Girls.  I am sure I will learn a lot from the ladies.

This week’s challenge #157 is ”Baby It’s Cold Outside” creating snow or cold weather projects.  I am using the rubber stamp “Maxwell Snowboarding” for a Christmas card.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

He is just too darn cute!  I created a slider card so that Maxwell could actually snowboard down the card.  I colored the image with copics and then stamped another image on thicker black card stock and glued them together to give more stability to the image. I used a penny which I covered with white card stock and then used a dimensional to adhere Maxwell to the penny.  I added a little glitter to his gloves and scarf.  I also added white applique to the snow on the leaf. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The paper is from the ‘Snowed In’ paper pad by My Mind’s Eye.  Martha Stewart clear glitter to form the mountains.  The sentiment came with the rubber stamp.  Some colored seed beads on the bottom for decoration and depth.

I hope you will join us this week for a fun challenge.  Don’t forget to check out the DT’s gorgeous work.  Have a wonderful week-end!
