Kim and Tara Challenge #6!!!


Happy Wednesday people!!! It's time for another fun and fabulous Kim and Tara Challenge!!! Yippeeee!

Tara and I first 'met' over a year ago through blogging. She is a super talented stamper and an unbelievably nice person. I remember reading some of her first loooooong emails to me and thinking 'Man, this girl can yak.....we're gonna be the BEST of friends!!' Hahaha!!

Finally, we were able to meet in person a couple of weeks ago at the Copic Certification workshop! She is exactly the cute, sweet gal that I imagined she would be. Sadly, we only got to hang out for the day and that was only on breaks and at lunch. I really think we're going to need to hang out again soon! Heehee!

So this month it was Tara's turn to pick the image and my turn to pick the papers. We traded items in Toronto and I was so excited to see that she had chosen a Sarah Kay stamp, because she knows I don't have any of them! The papers I picked are called Chocolate by Cloud Nine. Pink and brown...shocking, I know. I threw a little blue in there too, though!!

Of course I coloured the image in using my Copic markers using colours that coordinated with the dps and the layout is a Kimmie original....so feel free to use it! Haha! I added some rich red on the flowers to make it pop and then cut the image out and embossed it using my new Nestabilities!!! I wanted to bring out more of the blue in the papers so added some blue ric rack and stamped the AmyR sentiment on Brocade Blue cs. To finish it off I added some pretty Prima hydrangeas and attached them with big chocolate brads! I'm really happy with the way it turned out.




Now, I got a couple of comments recently that I wanted to address. Trish asked about the sizes of my cards. I generally do a lot of square cards and I almost always tell you in my post what size it is, whether it's 6x6 or 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 and sometimes I do regular A2 size as well. As for the layers, I could never tell you what the measurements are because I just eyeball them. Whatever looks good to me, is how I cut it.

Someone else said they had some questions about one of my cards and asked me to email them. Unfortunately, if you don't leave me an email address, I can't contact you. So if anyone ever has any specific questions, feel free to email me directly....there is a link on my sidebar. Thanks!!

Okay, now head on over to Tara's blog to check out her amazing creation. I got a sneak peek already and it's gorgeous! I love her scrappy style!!! Thanks for another fab challenge Tara!! Hugs!!!
