Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Spring/ Easter Challenge, Sprintime Friends


It's time for a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!  The theme for this one is Spring or Easter.


I knew this stamp from the Springtime Friends set, new in March, was perfect for the theme of this challenge.  I inked it with Copics.  That tree was so much fun to color!


I made the banners with a new die set I got for my birthday, by Sizzix, its a mix and match set of six and I couldn't wait to use it.  My papers are from Simple Stories, Vintage Bliss. I also used the  Stitched Circles Die SetDouble Scallop Border die and the Double Scallop Tag die.




I put another of the sentiments that come with this set on the inside of the card.  I love this sentiment!
The 'Happy Easter' was a freebie from my stash.


The Frugal Friday specials are now up in the shop and there is some cute, cute stuff! Be sure to check them out HERE.
Have you seen registration is now open for the Spring Krafty Krop? Go HERE for more information. 
This is the last weekend for Coffee Kits so if you wanted one be sure to go HERE before they're gone.

Well, there you have it folks!  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you feel inspired to get krafty!!

Maggie's Hand Me Downs, Whimsy Stamps

Who's ready for spring??  I am totally ready.  I know it has officially begun but I am looking out the window at snow this morning! UUUUGH! The last few days were sunny and a little warmer but today we are back to cold.

So I find myself reaching for those papers that make me feel warm and springy.  I've made this spring card using Maggie's Hand Me Downs, designed by Lizzy Love for Whimsy Stamps.  This stamp was a part of the March release.  It comes with two different sentiments but the card design is so versatile that I decided I would stamp it on the inside when I decide what the card will be used for.


My papers are Simple Stories, Vintage Bliss.  The flowers, charm, and brads are from my stash.  The pearls are by Santoro from Quick Creations.  The kite and butterflies are dies from Whimsy Stamps, you can find direct links in the list below.



I remembered to take a pic of the image before I put her on a card this time...

Cat Stop Thinking of You, Whimsy Stamps

Good Morning crafty peeps!!  Well, this card has already left the building. heehee.  My daughter saw me coloring up this new stamp, Cat Stop Thinking of You, and quickly claimed it for a birthday party she was going to this weekend.  I explained to her that I had it planned to be a card for a boy so she picked another from the box but when I finished she decided she was taking it anyway.

So here it is, using Cat Stop Thinking of You designed by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps.  This is one of the stamps from the March release and is available now, HERE.

E43 E42 E41 R22 R12 R00 R89 R46 R27 R14 N2 B60

My papers and brads are Simple Stories, Say Cheese and some knick knacks from my stash.  The die on the bottom is MFT and the Wonky Square is a Spellbinders die that I got for my birthday.



I kept the inside simple, the sentiment is a DCWV that went with a paper collection I had but it just fit too well.


 This stamp comes with two different sentiments to stamp in the "bubble" so I wanted to include a pic of the stamp set too.


 Don't forget to stop by the Whimsy Stamps blog and enter the new challenge!!  The theme is Use a Die Cut- something we all do anyway so how easy and fun is that??  And you can win a $15 GV to the shop!  Click HERE to enter.

So, there you have it folks.  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  Feel free to leave me any comments, thoughts, or questions.  I love to hear from ya'll!!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
