I used a PTI card stock base. I added a piece of MME dotted paper with a MS lacy border punch strip tucked under it. The holly punch is also MS. Some red, green and white twine was added with a red gem. The sentiment is My Favorite Things. Inside the card is a MFT sentiment from the same stamp set, name unknown. Links below.
Tis the season! Kim

Mojo Monday Sketch 320. I'm also playing in Merry Monday 84 which is to use a tree and bling. I added my bling in the corners of one of the mats and on the button. I colored a There Goes stamp set, such an adorable doggie and used MME Winter Wonderland paper. White embossing power was used for the sentiment, so fun!
Take care until next time! Kim :)

It just so happens that Krafin Kimmie Stamps was having an Anything Goes Challenge this week and I used this cute KK Stamp ( I couldn't find her in the KK store so I don't know the name). I was in the mood to practice my coloring so I inked her up. I used KK Sketch Challenge 202 for the sketch and some cute MME Hootenanny paper. I think it would have come out much better if I chose a dark color card stock for matting, oh well. :)
Gotta make this a short post. See you soon. Kim

I'm sure the idea of this site is to use those colors to do more stamping but I used the colors in my paper. It took me a while to incorporate all the elements in a way that was pleasing to me. This week's Mojo Monday Sketch 319 helped!
Just US Girls 215 is also having a Color Challenge -Brown, Red, Kraft and White, which this card fits. My kraft color is in the wood veneer stars. I just love them. The paper is MME Lost and Found Christmas. The Joy stamp is Hero Arts and the Bling is Recollections.
Have you been making Holiday cards? Kim

Hi Friends, so OK, my attempt at the MFT sketch this week didn't go so well. But, at least I'll have another card for my Xmas card stash. I actually like it, it just looks nothing like the sketch. I really tried to make the curvy element by hand because I don't have that die but it didn't look good (to this perfectionist!).
I LOVE this Basic Grey paper and I love the MFT stamp. The gingerbread man is a Recollections stamp from Michael's from a few years ago, heat embossed in white.
Thanks all for now, peeps! Hugs, Kim

So how gorgeous is this color palette of Teal/Blue and Brown? I just love it! I HAD to add a touch of red because these kinds of sleds ALWAYS have red paint on them!
I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch. Sure wish I could link this card up over there but if you want to win the release , you must only link your post to Flourishes.

Hey Bloggers and Kraftin Kimmie Fans, how are you today? Halloween's over and you know what that means for we card makers. Time to make Christmas Cards! If you do so, that is. I think last year I sent out some handmade AND some store bought.
This little cutie has been hanging around waiting for the right challenge. This week's KK Challenge is "pick a holiday" so I pick Christmas! This cute Cheryl Alger stamp set was released last fall when I was a guest designer. I used last year's MME paper pad and matching button pack. The two-tone twine is also MME. The tiny tag is PTI stamped with a KK sentiment. I added Flower Soft but it was my first time using it and I don't think I used enough. (?)

Hi Friends, I've been accumulating quite a bit of My Favorite Things stamps and dies over time but have rarely played in the Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I think it will be easier for me now that we can link up on the MFT blog instead of Splitcoast Stampers. I'd thought I'd try to start playing weekly (I Hope).
This little Pure Innocence cutie is from the Bear Hugs stamps set. I dressed her in some cute paper pieced prints from the My Mind's Eye paper pack. I mounted her on some SB die cuts and following the sketch, kept it mostly clean and simple. I used the smallest die of the same set for the sentiment with some hand-cut banner pieces. Easy Peasy! Did you guys know I was a micro-surgeon? That's what I always call myself when I cut out a ridiculously tiny piece of paper like the one on her sleeve by the bear's head. LOL!!!
See you again soon!

Hi Friends, It's been a while since I've posted ( I've been making Christmas cards) but I'm back with a card I started for Flourishes previous weekly challenge but put it aside. So this week I changed my plan for the colored image so it would fit the "Plaid or Houndstooth" this week. I also used this week's Deconstructed Sketch 125 which is turned on it's side.
I started with a base of PTI card stock and cut mats to match the sketch with Echo Park Fall Recollections paper. I used a few SB dies to cut the Flourishes "A Season of Thanks" stamp set focal image which was colored with Copics. The substituted the banner item from the sketch with a horizontal seam binding ribbon and bow and added a WOC Cherry Blossom Flower, some recollections leaves, and May Arts Twine. A few gems finish it off. Links to challenges below. See you soon! Kim
