Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday & CPS Challenge #251

This card is my entry for Suzanne's Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday challenge to make it LOVE-ly.  I used CPS Card Sketch #251 and created the card using some of my favorite items from Stampin' Up.  I love melon mambo and use this color as often as I possibly can!  It was a perfect color for this Valentine's Day themed card.  The card sketch looks like this:

I turned it sideways and came up with this card with a couple of twists on LOVE-ly!

I hope you enjoy the card!  Take a look around my blog for other card samples.

Happy Crafting!  ~Kim

Stamp TV Free for All Friday Challenge

This challenge to create a baby card was a good one for me since I rarely create anything related to babies.  I used my favorite Stampin' Up color, melon mambo, and sprinkled in some pirouette pink for added interest.  I have been attempting to use my Cricut on most things so the Baby phrase is cut from the Cricut using the Cindy Loo cartiridge.  I hope you enjoy my card as much as I enjoyed creating it.


I'm Back....

Now that the holidays are behind us, it's time to get back to being crafty!  The following card is for the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #110.  The challenge was to use at least three different shapes per card.  I thought that Kimmie's brand new Alice in Wonderland stamps were perfect for this challenge given the character of this story.  I hadn't gotten to ink up the Cheshire Cat yet so I decided he would be purrr...fect!

I cut several shapes using my new Cricut Expression 2 (best Christmas present E-V-E-R) and then went to work on coloring the cat with my Copic markers.  I am REALLY enjoying working with my markers again after such a long time away...I think I"ll go try another challenge.  I hope you enjoy the cat...  :)  

Happy  Crafting,
