Wow!! Wonderful Wednesday again.

Well, this time for Wonderful Wednesday, I thought it was time to make another Christmas card.  I so love these little reindeer.  They work so well for many different things.  They are from the Reindeer Games set and there are four designs, all of which are so cute and there are several adorable accessory stamps such as a yule log, a north pole sign, a hat, star and a couple of little presents.  Also there is a gorgeous little log cabin scene.  On top of that, there are five sweet sentiments, all of which are perfect.  In fact I have a bunch of these little guys cut out and ready to go on Christmas tags.  So cute!!

Okay, so I used S.U. Pool Party for my card base and matted the Santa Express patterned paper onto Poppy Parade cardstock.  I used one of the sentiments from the set, 'Sending You Warm Thoughts This Christmas' on one of the strips of cardstock and added some Sprinkles Shapes holly near the top.

The Magic of Christmas!

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

The theme this week is Magic.  I thought it was a great way to use the KK 'Believe In The Magic Of Christmas' sentiment from the lovely set of sentiments from September 2015, The Magic of Christmas  I love this set, there are eight wonderful sentiments, which can be used as the focal point on your card or as the inside sentiment.  I love sentiments and tend to use them a lot on the front of my cards, it's especially handy if you are in a hurry and don't have time to colour up an image.

I used the patterned papers from a gorgeous pad called A Christmas Story from First Edition papers.  They are so vintage and take me back to a simpler time.  I used the gorgeous holly die cut  on the left.  The card stock is long retired True Thyme, which works perfectly with the papers.  I used it for the card base too and for one of the layers behind the sentiment.  The red I used is also retired Ruby Red, which I love.  So many of the retired S.U. card stocks are my favourites.  I added a Prima poinsettia for an extra little pop.

Well, we always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!!

Wonderful Wednesday with Owls!!

Good morning, stampers!  Well, it's Wonderful Wednesday time again.  Today I have a little card I made using the Kraftin' Kimmie stamp set You're A Hoot This lovely set has four different adorable owls, three sentiments and several other stamps, one of them being the branch my owls are sitting on.  I have used these two owls to make anniversary cards, Hallowe'en cards and all sorts.  They are so versatile.

The card base and image background use S.U. Marigold Morning.  The other colours of cardstock I used are Kiwi Kiss and retired Ruby Red. I used some GG ribbon, metallic dots and I even used eyelets.

Don't forget to show us YOUR WW creations.

Happy stampin'
