I can’t believe my guest designer stint with Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is already over. Time seems to fly now that school has started again. Today’s challenge is to create a scene. I made it easy on myself and used a stamp that already looks like a scene when you stamp it. It’s an image from Emilie Goulet’s new Too Cute to Spook 1 set.

The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink once on Neenah Solar White cardstock and once onEcho Park Hello Summer patterned paper. Both images were colored with Copic Markers (Pumpkins: YR00, YR12, YR15, YR18, R08   Leaves: G20, G21, G24, G28   Skin: E000, E00, E01   Shirt: E41, E42, E43, B91, B93, B95  Pumpkin Eyes: E50, E51, E53).  The image on the patterned paper was cut out with scissors and adhered to the image on the white cardstock, which was cut and embossed with a Card Creator Matte B die.

The images were masked and a circle mask was adhered to the upper left corner. With the die still on the cardstock, the image was sponged with Broken China and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks . Next the circle mask was taken off and that area was sponged with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. The layer was then adhered to black cardstock, cut and embossed with a Card Creator Matte A die.

A piece of Hello Summer paper was cut and embossed with another Matte B die, sanded and stitched to a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with the next larger Matte A die. Ribbon was tied around the layers before the image layers were adhered with dimensional adhesive. The layers were adhered to the card base,  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ cardstock from the Emerald Coast Color Made Easy collection.

A sentiment from the set was stamped on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the smallest of the Nested Lacey Pennants dies. Four rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones were adhered underneath the sentiment before the pennant was adhered to the upper left corner. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl above the bow finish off the card.

I hope you have time to check out the other designers samples and participate in the challenge. Have a wonderful weekend!

It’s time for Kraftin’ Kimmie August Release Blog hop. For my card I used another Candy Girl. This image is called Fabby Flossy.

A piece of Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee patterned paper was cut and embossed with the largest Resplendent Rectangle die. The embossed edges were sanded and then cut along the embossed line. It was adhered to the card front, white cardstock with the same die.

A sentiment from the set was stamped in Tuxedo Black on white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with an insert die from the Fancy Framed Tag One. It was sponged with Antique Linen before it was adhered to the upper right hand side of the image. Rhinestones from a Sleek Strip Silver Rhinestones pack finish off the card.

Can you believe we are getting close to Halloween already? Crazy how fast time flies. Me….I am looking forward to next Friday when school starts again. Don’t tell my kids I said that. LOL. I am more creative when I have the house to myself. Today the Kraftin’ Kimmie gang is introducing the Halloween Lulu stamp set. You can find links to the blogs of the participants by clicking on the inlinkz link on the bottom.

For my sneak peek sample I stamped Frankenstein Lulu inTuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with the second largest Decorative Label Eight Nestabilities die die. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: YG01, YG03, YG17   Hair, Skirt, Sneakers: C3, C5, C7, C9, C10   Jacket, Socks: V04, V06, V09   Ground: W3, W4, W5, W7, W9). It was then masked. The die was placed back over it and cloud masks were added that had been cut with Spellbinders Whimsy die dies. The background was then sponged first with Black Soot, then with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

Two pieces of Pink Paislee’s Phantom paper (it is still one of my favorite paper packs) were cut and embossed with the second largest Card Creator Matte A die. The edges were sanded before the layer was stitched to black cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the largest Card Creator Matte B die.

May Arts ribbon was colored with Copic V09 Marker and tied around the patterned paper layers before everything was adhered to the card base, cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Scallop Rectangle die out of Basic Gray cardstock. The bow was topped with a rhinestones brad.

The sentiment is also from the new Halloween Lulu set. It was stamped on white cardstock, cut and embossed with an insert die from the Fancy Framed Tags Two dies. The sentiment layer was sponged just like the image layer background and adhered to the lower left of the image. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl under the bow and  Fancy That! Border Bling on the top left corner finish off the card.

I am excited to be guest designing for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps this month. Today’s challenge is to create something with the Out of the Box technique. I LOVE that techinque and use it quite frequently.  Kerry Johnson is the hostess this week and the prize is the stamp set she is using today.

For my sample I stamped an image from the Sugar and Spice set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Skin:E000, E01, E11    Hair: Y11, Y13, E31    Dress/Bow (B000, B01, B02, B04)    Shoes: N3, N5, N7, N9    Socks/dress trim: N0, N1, N3   Balloon: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17   Ground: YG01, YG03, YG17, E31).

The image was masked, the oval die was placed back over the image and cloud masked cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Whimsy die were added. The image was then airbrushed with Copic Marker B01. The bottom of the clouds were colored with Copic Markers W00, W0, W1. The image was adhered to a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Decorative Oval Nestabilities dies.

Both a piece of Pebbles patterned paper as well as a piece of Solar White cardstock were cut and embossed with the largest Label Twenty-Eight die. The edges of the patterned paper were sanded, then trimmed down to the embossed edge. It was then stitched to the white cardstock label. A hole was punched into the image layers and May Arts ribbon was threaded through it and tied around the label layers. The oval layers were adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

A white cardstock base was cut and embossed with the same Label Twenty-Eight Nestabilities die and the card front was adhered to it. A sentiment from Sugar and Spice was stamped on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the insert dies from the new Fancy Framed Tags 2 die set. The embossed part of the oval was airbrushed with Copic Marker B01.  Parts of a  Fancy That! Border Bling and Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones finish off the card.
