Cool Girl

My second post today. This is a KennyK Stamp - All That that I have paper pieced and coloured with copics. The paper, lace trim and flower is from Recollections - Bright and Basic that I picked up at Michaels last week.

I used Rachel Jakes sketch over at the KennyK challenge blog

I was inspired by the colours in this picture by Cake Girl that was found on the cupcake inspiration blog:

Orange You Sweet

Today's card is very Orange. The stamp is KraftinKimmie - Oliva Orange, coloured with copics. The paper is BoBunny- a gift of Love collection. She is mounted on a scallop circle cut from the Nestibilities and I can't resist adding bling to the open circles of the Eyelet cirlce cutout. I think that defeats the purpose of showing the eyelets but I like the shine. Although it doesn't show in the picture very well, the ribbon is a sheer yellow with a glitter.

I've used the sketch from Christine over at Cute Card Thursday

Just Chillin'

I made this card with a Mo Manning image, GAME ON that I picked up at Stamping Bella. The background paper is Basic Grey - Oliver, a favourite of mine. The sketch was inspired by Vickie at Sketch and Stash. I thought I would make a card this week that didn't feature hearts.

Valentine Kisses

It seems that love is in the air. One more Valentine's day card featuring Clara by Kraftin Kimmie Stamps but in this card she is blowing kisses instead of talking to the birds. I used the Seweasy stitch piercer to create the holes for the stitching along the border and added a brad from K&Company. Clara's dress is paper pieced using paper from my stash and a red velvet underskirt.
