World Wide Open Design Team May 2018

Good Afternoon Crafty friends,

Today's post is sharing my design team project for World Wide Open Design Team If you are on a design team make sure to join us for a chance at some great images from our sponser Julia Spiri.

The image I have used is called Wedding Flowers and you can find it here.

I'm sending this off to my mum for Mother's Day. I have fond memories of her lilies growing in front of our house, so many beautiful colors to choose from but today I choose a pink blend.

World Wide Open Design Team April 15th

Welcome to World Wide Open Design Team Challenge #04

15th April through to 12th May 2018

My project today is featuring Princess of Tea which you can find here. I printed the image out twice, colored the full version with copics and created a shaker card with the second image fussy cut and applied to the outside of the shaker. I was pretty happy to have finally used up these vellum flowers that have been stored in my craft bins for at least 10 years.

Birthday Wishes

Today's card features Unicorn and Rainbows from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps
Colored with copics and wink of stella
Embossed with a brand new embossing folder with clouds.

I find it very difficult to photograph glitter, each cloud is brushed with clear wink of stella and the rainbow clouds have Frosted Lace Stickles. 

I would love to enter this card into this weeks challenge at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps
The stamp set and embossing folder are my brand new never used before items.

Thanks for stopping by!

at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

We have a theme for this month's stamp sets and it's a category that every stamper must have in their stash!
We're celebrating BIRTHDAYS!
Today we have a totally SASSY new set
by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen!!

I'm super excited to share this set because it was the Super Secret stamp set that was included in the latests Krafty Kard Kit!!! And I preordered it already have it in my inky little fingers and you'll get to see the creations today and on release day! I'm so excited to be here as a Guest Designer.

This totally awesome set comes with a bunch of sassy larger sentiments that work for boys, girls, men or women!

There are also a selection of birthday themed images including balloons, stars, cake, candles and ice cream! Just wait 'til you see all the totally different creations today!

In the kit was a fabulous embossing folder that I wanted to showcase with the stamps. I inked up the folder with picked raspberry, wilted violet and cracked pistachio Distress Oxide inks from Tim Holtz. Spritzed the folder with water and ran the folder through the big shot. I love the watercolor look this technique gave the paper.

Kraftin Kimmie Challenge #1 - A Brand New Stamp!

Two posts in one day!?! Are you guys as shocked as I am? I think I'm finally getting my mojo back after losing my Grannie after Christmas.

Kraftin Kimmie has five challenges that end today. I'm going to play along and see if I can get all 5 competed.

Here's #1 Use a Brand New Stamp.
I'm being buy sets on Frugal Friday (a few sets that are up to 40% off!) and my stash of uninked sets is crazy. Today I used the oxide inks (faded jeans, broken china, peacock feathers and cracked pistachio) on my craft mat and sprayed with water, layed watercolor paper down to get full coverage and create gorgous background for this card. Sporty Boys, karate boy was colored with copics and fussy cut out. (that never happens here so that was another challenge for me.)
