Krafty Chicks Challenge #443 {Red/Pink]


Welcome back to another "Krafty Chicks" challenge. This week, it is miss Amy's turn to throw out the "twist" for this week's Anything Goes challenge! 

KCC #443 {Red/Pink}

** Remember, our challenges are always Anything Goes with the optional "twist" thrown in each week. You do not have to use the twist, but we would sure love it if you did! :)

For my card this week, I used Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and Strawberry Slush paper for the red/pinks combo: 


The sentiment is from my older stash of The Alley Way Stamps - ones I couldn't let go of when they closed down...

Please be sure to check out what my other fellow Chicks have created for you using Amy's challenge:


We would love if you would come on over and play along with us this week - remember, it's an Anything Goes challenge with the optional "twist!"

You Warm My Heart


Happy Monday! Another new week awaits us - and this being Family Day here in Alberta, I am taking full advantage of the day off work :) I spent some time doing much needed house work, some of my bookkeeping course and fun in the craft room - cyber crafting with my bestie - Leanne! It is very cold again today (-32C with a wind chill of -34C brrr!) so another great day to stay inside and maybe do some more crafting?! LOL...

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today with this card - it was so fun to create using my stamps from Jane's Doodles. These little to-go cups are just so darling and you can color them up in any color combo you'd like. I stamped them numerous times onto Xpress It! Copic paper, colored them and then cut the panel out with my wonky stitched rectangle die from Craftin' Desert Divas. 


I then layered it on black and teal, added the sentiment strip and finished it all off by adding glossy accents to all the hearts. CUTE!!! 

 

I am entering my card into the following challenges:



the card Concept 108 - Love is in the Air



STAMPlorations - Hearts/Sketch (I used the hearts portion)
Simply Create Too - Hearts 
LeAnns World 101 - Anything Goes
Color My Heart Color Dare - Color Palette
Die Cuttin Divas - LOVE
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes

I sure hope you are enjoying your Monday. Thank you so much for stopping in today! CHEERS!!!

Happy 'Krafty Chicks' Thursday everyone! Today, miss Tangii is up on the blog sharing the twist to our Anything Goes challenge. 

KCC #439 {SKETCH CHALLENGE}

She's issuing the following sketch for us to use:


This sketch made me think and I altered it just a smidgie...I didn't put the square element in - I used my sentiment as the right side element. That's why I love sketches - you can interpret them a little bit different than the next person and make it work for you and your supplies:


All supplies are from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping in today - be sure to hop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the Chicks have created using Tangii's sketch. Cheers!

Life Happens After Coffee!

 

Happy Monday everyone! Welcome back to my blog. By now, I am assuming everyone is back into their routines after the Christmas/New Year holidays and life has resumed to it's normal state! I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today, sharing my first coffee card of 2019:

 

I had a lot of fun creating this card using my goodies from Fun Stampers Journey! I stamped the coffee stain rings with Crumb Cake ink, stamped the cup on Xpress It Copic Paper, colored it up and cut it out with the matching die - isn't that glossy red heart the perfect touch? Life REALLY does begin after coffee :)

 

Thank you so much for stopping in today - cheers!!

This week, it is Leanne's turn to be our hostess-with-the-mostess. She is looking for us to show off some of our projects with TREES: 

KCC #436 {TREES}

I was very lucky to have had almost 2 weeks off of work during the holiday season and although I ended up sick with a cold on Boxing Day, it was still nice to be at home. I took the opportunity to escape to my craft room and cyber craft with my best friend, Leanne, and get ahead on some DT commitments. It was a lot ton of fun to create with her even though we are miles apart :) 

My card this week features the fun set, The Sheltering Tree, from Stampin' Up! Using various elements from the set, I created this super cute scene: 


All supplies are Stampin' Up! - More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand...a nice CAS design!

International Tea Day w/ Studio Katia


Happy Saturday everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the "International Tea Day" collaboration blog hop with Studio Katia and Coffee Loving Cardmakers today! You should have arrived from Amy Tsuruta's blog. If you are just stopping in to see what I've been up to, why not start at the beginning over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog HERE OR over at the Studio Katia blog HERE and come celebrate International Tea Day with us?! 

There will be a $50 gift certificate up for grabs from Studio Katia (eeeek!!) so make sure you comment along the way - commenting will be open from Dec 15 to 22nd and the winner will be posted on Sunday, December 23rd at 6 a.m. PST.

I just gotta say that although I am not *really* a tea gal (when I am sick I drink tea, but other than that, I am a coffee-lover), I fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw it - it's absolutely GORGEOUS...my first card features spring colors and a pretty teal tea cup/saucer:


It was so fun to color up while cyber crafting with my good friend Leanne last Saturday and Sunday! The matching die set is awesome to go along with this stamp and the die sentiments included are "tea" "thanks" 


I also added pretty Gold Sparkle Crystals for some added bling to finish off the card - I really enjoy the CAS design with the tea cup as the focal point!

For 2nd card, I wanted to color up the image using Christmas colors and I absolutely LOVE how this turned out:


I am so in love with this card. The colors, the sparkle, the contrast with the image popped up on a black background...so pretty! I embossed "a cup of" with some winter white embossing powder and cut the black "thanks" with some foam to give it more dimension. Again, I added more Gold Sparkle Crystals for some added bling, then used a bit of red glitter on the berries...

 

A huge thanks to Studio Katia for all the wonderful goodies and allowing me to be a part of this awesome International Tea Day celebration!
