This week Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is happy to be sponsoring the sketch challenge over at Card Positioning Systems!! If you'd like to play along, you could win some new rubbah!!
For my card, I used the new Merry stamp from our Krafty Holiday release!! The sketch was fun to start out with as inspiration....now my card is square, rather than long like they have in the original....but I'm using my creative license, I guess! heehee!
I started out with my Eskimo Kisses dp by Basic Grey from last year....so proud of myself for using up some of my older papers. I had SO much fun colouring up Merry with my Copic markers. Isn't she just a hoot? She reminds me of Mrs. Cleaver! Now Merry comes with her own sentiment and a pair of oven mitts as an accessory stamp, but I chose to use one of the fabulous phrases from the Holiday Sentiments set.
I used kraft cardstock for the base and Pretty in Pink and Real Red for matting. Then I added some lovely satin ribbon and a bow across the middle. The flowers are so pretty and sparkly in real life and I threw on a spattering of pearls a la Tara!! Isn't she pretty??
So Andrea came over to have a play date with me yesterday! I feel like I haven't coloured in SO long, what with all the big events we've been participating in....Krafty Day, Scrapfest, Mildmay....and I'll have pictures soon, I promise! So it was a great colouring day and I got three whole cards done. THEN, I started feeling crummy and as soon as Andrea went home, I crawled into bed and slept for two hours. Needless to say, I am down with a cold and I feel awful. Poo.
Don't forget that all the new Festive Holiday stamps are now available at the KKStamps Shop and you can also get the Gimme Kimmie's Kits for a limited time and at a discount! Hope you can join our CPS challenge!!
