{KKS} Hot n Sexy!

Okay, so this weeks challenge at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps is Hot n Sexy….you may think it strange that I used a fishing themed stamp, but my hubby think women that fish, shoot guns and drink beer are sexy! I used River for my card, and with her 'cheeky' swim suit, I think she's pretty dang sexy! lol

She's coloured with Copics and I used my markers to draw in some cat tails around her custom muck boots! I added some distressing, machine stitching and a wooden button tied with rustic jute twine. THe wave die is my Taylored Expressions.

Check out the KKS blog to see what the other girls have been up to!

{KKS} Lil' Pumpkin

Today I have a card to share with you that features one of our newest releases from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Hey there, Punkin'!

I used some MFT fishtail flag dies and circle die, as well as some rustic jute twine to make a simple bow embellishment. I used distress ink to sponge around the panels. She was coloured with Copics and pastels.

We hope you'll join in with us for this week's Wonderful Wednesday Challenge. As always, Anything Goes! Thanks for stopping by!

{SPD} Anything Goes

I've used a portion of the Tweet Friend set from our Sugar Snap Collection (you can see the full stamp set graphic below). I added a vellum sentiment banner and a nest die cut (from The Cat's Pajamas) and filled it with an egg embellie from the dollar store! I love this Simple Stories Hello Baby paper for these soft and sweet cards!

{TI} Farewell Tiddly Inks!

Hey there! This post is a bit of a bittersweet one for me! Sadly, this is my last post as a Tiddly Inker :( I have really enjoyed being a part of such a wonderfully supportive and kind hearted group of ladies that make up the TI team….this was a place to go when you needed a lift! But the time has come for new designers to get to be a part of such a great team, working for a great lady, Miss Christy Croll, and designing with some oh-so-amazing images!! That part makes me happy- and seeing all of the excitement and enthusiasm over the new DT call made me really see that change is good! So thank you, all you I fans and cardmakers that submitted projects for the call! You really made my departure much sweeter! I know you all can't be chosen, but keep trying! And keep being excited and passionate for your craft! To those of you who were asked to join Tiddly Inks- Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you :) Enjoy this journey…..Thank you to all my FRIENDS that I have made on this team. Thank you for your kind words and support. Thank you to Christy, for choosing me on the last call and for being a person with integrity and heart! You're in a class all it's own! And for putting up with my damned email issues for the past year! Haha!

Now, on with my card! 

I've used Wryn- Sunny Day. I coloured her with copics, and added some pastels in there for some depth. I sponged the panels with distress ink and used my piercer around the image panel. The dies are MFT. The CS is Hot Fudge, as well as the button (both MFT). I used a PTI stamp for the sentiment, stamping in Memento Luxe Espresso Truffle. The ribbon us SU and jute twine was added to the button.

Here's a closeup of this sweetie!

I promise that I won't be a stranger to Tiddly Inks...but this is me, signing off….

{PPC/Xyron} Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Perfect Paper Crafting and Xyron blog hop!

I have a really fun and regal card to share with you today! I've used products from both of these amazing companies (which I'll chat about a bit later) as well as some great die cuts from Reverse Confetti: Tag Me, Too confetti cuts, Arrow confetti cut (with the centre fletchings cut out), and Love Note confetti cut (also what I cut the scallop border from).
I used a circle embossing folder on the cream panels and sponged distress ink to soften everything up. I cut the scallop tag again from vellum and loosely adhered it to the cream tag. Those gorgeous gold words were cut from gold foil paper and then ran thru the Xyron 2.5" Create a Sticker to get easily adhere them to the vellum! No mess- easy peasy!

I always use my Perfect Paper Crafting Mini and Perfect Cutting Mat to achieve those perfect layers. My preference is a 1/16" border, but you can choose one of many options, all with the same tool! Use Jenny5% to get a discount in the store :) 

Here is our hop lineup:

Xyron will be giving out prizes EVERY day, so be sure to check their blog out each day of the hop! And Paper Perfect Crafting will be giving away a $50 gift card, so hop along and leave comments to increase your chances of winning!!

I've used this months Colour Challenge for inspiration! And I used the August SFYTT as well, just because it had so many nice layers to show off my PPC tools!!
