Woohoo!! Well, Happy New Year! This is my first post of 2011!! I feel like I've been away for SO long! I hope you all had a magical Christmas and are all rested up now! HA! I think we need a holiday from the holidays, don't you??
So that's why this week's challenge at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog, is to Unwind!!! The wonderful Michele Boyer is our hostess this week and she would like us NOT to use any ribbon, twine, lace, trim...fibres of any kind on our designs. EEEK! The thought of making a card with no ribbon had me in sweats!! I never realized just how much ribbon I use when I'm crafting!
Anyhoo, here's my card! It's a very clean and simple design but with lots of layers....does that still count as 'clean and simple'?? I don't know. Anyway, I used the lovely Lillith and paper pieced her dress! The papers I used are from the Pixielicious 6x6 pad from Cosmo Cricket. I LOVE that pad! In fact, I've used so much of it that I actually had to buy myself another pad!! That NEVER happens!
It almost killed me not to add some nice satin ribbon with a big ol' bow on the side....but I held back! I just added some brads in the four corners of the main layer and then added a flag with the sentiment on it....from the Fun Sentiments set. And all done! And I kinda like it!
Now be sure to hop on over to the challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations from our Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests! Then if you feel like spying some snippets of our January release stamps, head over to the KKStamps fan page on Facebook! We've posted a couple of little tidbits for our Facebook fans! And then our main Krafty Peeks will begin on Thursday, January 13th with the new stamps being released on Sunday, January 16th! And it's a BIG release, so be prepared!!!
