Our challenge theme this week is to use "Green".  This is such a fun challenge and there are many ways to work green into your project!  My card features one of the stamps from the "A Bit Smart Assy II" stamp set.


I took all of the sentiments from the stamp set and arranged them onto a block and then stamped them with versamark clear ink and then embossed it with white ink.  The background was created using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a bit of water.  I really love these markers I find the colors are very vibrant.  The background paper is from the Doodlebug - Pot O' Gold paper pad.  The hearts are dies from Simon Says Stamp.  The stamped image was colored with Copics and then fussy cut and I used dimensional foam tape to the back to give it a 3D effect.

I decided to make some Christmas gift tags for this months Scrappy challenge.  I used CHRISTMAS CHEER and THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS stamps sets.  I made my own tags and then used a Magnolia Cozy Big Snowflake die to cut out the center.  Then I added a bit of designer paper behind the opening and glued it all down to another slightly larger tag.  After that I glued the snowflake back into the opening.  I used a white gel pen to go around the tag to mimic sewing.  The buttons were made using a Die-Namics button die.  Then I stamped the sentiment and then  added a bit of twine and a gem stone to the middle of the snowflake. Here are a few more pictures of the different colored tags.
 
 

Quick and easy to do and as a bonus you can use up lots of those leftover scraps you have laying around!  So what are you waiting for grab some of your KKS stamps and get scrappy with us for the next month!

Hi, it's time for another WW challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  I've made an underwater shaker card with the Oceans Of Love stamp set.  This is a fun and versatile stamp set.  I've used it so often and in many different ways!  I colored all the little animals and cut them out and glued them into the shaker part of the card.  I used seed beads because they kinda look like a bit of coral!  The shaker box was cut out using a YNS rectangle stitch die.  The waves are also a die from YNS.  I stamped the sentiment then used white embossing powder so that it would pop!

Another fun set by designer Cheryl Grant!  I've created a couple of "Magic Wands" with these stamps.  I found some pictures of stars online and printed them at seven inches then cut them out and used them to create these wands.  The papers are just left overs from other projects.  I used a Martha Stewart border bunch for the lacey look along the sides of the wands.  The images were colored with Copics and I added a bit of stickles and some sequins.  The bat is a die from Memory Box.  The little kitty on the top wand is from the Spook-tacular Sentiments stamp set.  Here are a couple pictures of the full wands.



I used some dowels for the base and lots of ribbons.  These wands were lots of fun to create!!  Thanks for stopping!  There are lots of more goodies along the hop for you to see!!
