Oh my goodness, this week has been kicking my butt, we've got so much family stuff happening plus the kiddo's first year of school is winding down(only 2 1/2 weeks left!). So last week was National Scrapbook Day, I didn't get to participate over that weekend, but Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps(www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com) had their challenges open all week long! Gotta say, I've only got a few so far, and out of the 5 challenges I finished, I kept reaching for this one stamp and her sentiments 4 times, lol. Couldn't help it, she's too cute and fun to color! Fussy cutting again kicked my butt on one challenge, but I LOVE how it turned out. Alright, here we go, all 5 challenges in one post! :-)
Challenge 01: Krafty Kreations- Use Kraft somewhere on your project
Challenge 02: It's a Celebration! Make a project that celebrates something!
I wish you could see this one in real life because it's awesome! There's so many layers and it sparkles so pretty! I had to make something to celebrate spring because it finally became spring in Minnesota! We were doubting we'd get one at all.
Challenge 03: Let it sparkle: use bling.
You can see the rhinestones pretty well, what you can't really see in this picture is that her shirt and the flower centers sparkle too. I colored them with a Sakura Stardust pen in Clear.
Challenge 04: Anything but a card: Make anything other than a card.
I stamped her directly to the tag, colored her, and then used my TH Distress Inks to ink around her to create a background. The sentiment was inked on a piece of paper, inked with Distress Ink and then pop dotted up to add some dimension.
Challenge 06: Buttons, Bows & Bling: use at least 2 of the 3 on your project.
I had fun creating the 3-D bow and stamping the sentiment directly to it, love how it turned out. It's so hard to see the bling in this picture, it's really sparkly, I colored every other flower in the background with the clear Stardust pen. It just shines blingy sparkle in real life. I'll try for close-ups later.
Alright there's all my challenges, I'm off to help a family member pack up to move so I'll see you all again soon.
Hope the rest of your weekend is crafty! :-)
