I have been MIA from blogger for a while.  Life just happens and I have been very busy.  Now, the holidays are here and I find myself behind as usual!!  LOL!!  I have only just begun making cards and trying to make all the things I want to make and never seem to have the time.  Oh, well, I guess that's gonna be my story again this year.  I think I may need to start for Christmas for next year now! I am here to show you my latest creation using Angel Voices stamps from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  Anyway, onto the adorable stamps and my card.   I just love the versatility of these and they are clear stamps.  So, no need to mount.  They stamp crisp and clear and I love them!  You can find this set of stamps here:

Sassy Designs Studios FBF

I am honored to be a GDT at SSD for October.  I am super excited as I love Halloween!!  I have used Candy Apple Candace and colored her with copics.  I attached her to a SVG file that I cut from my Cameo.  I enjoyed coloring her.  She was so much fun.

You can get her here for free for 24 hours if you join SSD.

After that you can purchase her in the store.  She is a fabulous image. 

Now, here is my project.  I hope you like her.  I enjoyed creating with her.

Wonderful Wednesday Challenge May 27- June 2

Here is my entry for the new WW Challenge at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  I used Hannah Hearts.  I so love this image.  She is so sweet and can be used for so many different occasions.  I am using this for my father's day card for my Dad.  He is 78 and he loves every card I send him cause I have made it with my heart.  Which is exactly what the little charm says "May with Love".  And that it is.  You can find Hannah Heart here.

Kraftin Kimmie Challenge #281- Get Sporty

I decided to try the "No Lines" technique in stamping.  I did have a touch of the lines though so I could see them!  I'm not sure I'm feeling this technique as it is difficult to see the lines to color in, but thought I'd give it a go and see how it came out.  I am kind of pleased with the outcome. I do enjoy winter sports and have always loved going ice skating in the woods where I grew up.  It was always so quiet and peaceful.   I colored the image and background with Copics.  I also added some Misting sprays and inks to the back ground and used a snow flake stencil with white chalk ink to give it a little more texture. I also added a snowflake charm and used some of those wonderful snowflake sequins from Kraftin Kimmie.  I did have fun playing with this and I am entering it into Kraftin Kimmie's Get Sporty challenge.  I'm not sure the name of this stamp as I did win him from Kraftin Kimmie.  Thank you Kim for such a cute stamp and one that was meant for this challenge.

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge #278 "A Baby Shower"

Well, here I am again to showcase my layout using Diana from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  You can purchase her here.  This week's challenge is to use an image in the theme of a baby shower.  I bought this stamp this past December immediately after my daughter announced that she was pregnant with her second lil one.  I was sooooo excited, I purchased this stamp with the intentions of using for her next baby shower.  Only, that didn't happen.  Unfortunately, the following week she had a miscarriage.  I was devastated as was she.  I had no idea what I would ever use this stamp for if she decided to not try again.  But, after the announcement was made for this week's challenge, my lil brain went crazy.  I don't have to use it for a baby shower card, I can use it for my granddaughter's scrap pages!!!  Silly me!!!  So, I pulled out some of her baby pics and picked 3 of my faves.  I used different papers from my stash, some baby charms, petaloo flowers (which I love by the way!), bling swirls with flowers by petaloo, and I fussy cut some numbers from a Debbie Mumm paper pad I had in my stash for her birth date.  Yes, she is gonna be 5 years old very soon!!!  How time has flown.  I can remember the day she came home from the hospital and how tiny she was and now to see her, just amazing!!!  I love this lil girl with all my heart.  She is my mini me!!!  LOL!!  I colored Diana with Copics.  Here is my layout.................

Bright Colors

I had sooo much fun with this challenge from Kraftin Kimmie stamps.  We had to use bright colors on our project.  So, I really love the Angry Ballerina image so, I decided I wanted to use her for this challenge.  As I was coloring her I was trying to decide what project to use it on.  I decided that I could really use a bookmark as I read so much.  I usually use my Nook to read, but I do have a bunch of hardcover books to read and I don't have a bookmark anymore as I lost the one I had.  I am excited about how this turned out.  I colored the image with copics and I used some bazzil paper and some papers from DCWV in my stash.  I also used some Darice twine.  I hope you like my bookmark as much as I do!!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Guest Spot

I am soooooooo Excited for this!!  I love Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and I do believe I am addicted.  (That's not a bad thing, right!!)  Anyway, I fell in love with this set of stamps from KKS called Oh, Snap!  It reminds me of every time that my daughter and I go somewhere new we have to do what is now referred to as a "selfie", but we've always called it "A Thelma and Louise".  LOL!!  Anyway, I decided I wanted it to look like she had taken her picture inside a photo booth.  You remember those that you sit in and make those silly faces and it spits out a film of paper with 4 photos of you and your friend sticking out your tongues!!  Yup, very fond memories.  This is actually made into a shaker card filled with some green stars that you can see floating around the image.  I also embossed the sentiments which also come with this set of stamps. I placed the image on top of an svg file I had that is a "polaroid" film just to add some dimension and fun to an already great image. You can find and fall in love with these stamps just like I have by visiting  You won't be sorry, but you may come away a little lighter.  Well, at least your wallet will be lighter!  Hehehehehe!  I hope you like my card.
