Kraftin' Kimmie Anything Goes and PP#358

Kraftin' Kimmie's Anything Goes was the inspiration for these two cards. Using the August sketch and the KKS stamp Birthday Lulu for the first card I created a cute birthday card. The second card was made with the Zinnia Bouquet stamp from Taylored Expressions.  Turning the sketch and using different colors made them completely unique.
 Also entering the second card into the Paper Players challenge 358 for emphasis on coloring. By using monochromatic colors the focus is on the colored image.

Retro Sketches #154

I really liked this card when I finished it today. I'm always being asked for birthday cards for boys so I used the sketch from Retro Sketches as my starting point for this one. The skateboarder has been in my collection for quite a while and I knew that it would be perfect. I paired the stamp with paper from the Echo Park Scoot 6x6 paper pad and created this fun card.

Merry Monday #147 and CAS(E) this Sketch #111

Today's card is based on this sketch by CAS(E) this Sketch and features stars for the Merry Monday Challenge. I wanted a card that was bright and colorful so I started with the paper from Recollections that I've been holding in my stash. The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado set called Warm Holiday Wishes and it has stars mixed throughout the lettering. The red and green stars in the lower corner are affixed with foam adhesive to give some dimension.

Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Krop Challenge #6

Today I finished the card for the final crop challenge from the Kraftin' Kimmie Birthday Crop on Saturday. The first card wasn't looking the way I wanted so I set it aside and did a second card. Liking this one much better. The added element was to have bling and this card is full of it. I used bling papers which turned out awesome.
