Kraftin Kimmie Holiday Stamp Release

Well I love Kraftin Kimmie, so when she offered us another chance to guest design I totally signed up. Unfortunately life got bananas, so I didn't get time to participate in the actual blog hop. Here are the 2 fun cards I made with the kids, and the fantastic new Christmas stamp sets!

This first one is using the stamp set "Shake It Up" by Becky Pearce. I really wanted to highlight the snow globe aspect, so I used Liquid Glass over top to make it look 3d. I made the mistake of trying to push it around a little though, so it did run a bit.

The 2nd set is "Santa Paws" by Emilie Goulet. I played with some glitter ritz and some Cricut cuts on this one. Sookwang Tape is such a versatile tool to have!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello All,

It is a wet and windy day here in NS, and I have been busy packing to go away, trying to feel better and to get lots of crafty things ready for the crazy busy holiday season. Last year I sent out about 65 cards, gave out another 20 and taught 2 classes. Odds are it will be about the same this year, so time to stock up, but that doesn't mean I can't make some blog worthy!

Today I thought I would share a clean and simple card I made at my National Stamping Day Crop as a make and take. It features the September Stamp of the Month from Close to My Heart, as well as some of our the amazing new ribbon that matches our "Fundamentals". Isn't it amazing what you can do with just some stamps?!? I am thankful for that and my wonderful hubby very often.
