KinderStampO's Sketchy Wednesday

Scroll down for giveaway information!




Hello everyone! It's time for another of KinderStampO's Sketchy Wednesdays. Here is a picture of the sketch and my project. I used the Santa's Village Imagine cartridge again for this project. It came together very quickly and was super simple! I cut this out using Cricut Craftroom. I used a basic square shape and filled it in with one of the patterns on Santa's Village and then cut Mrs. Clause with layers so I could pop up her face and arms. The sentiment is from KinderStampO's "Vintage and Traditional Holiday" stamp set that you can check out here.

It's been a while since I have done a challenge so I decided to participate in Exploring Cricut's challenge number 4. The challenge is to make a card, layout, or papercraft with any turkey Cricut cut. You can check out all the entries here at the Exploring Cricut blog.

I used the Enjoy the Seasons Imagine cartridge and the Art Philosophy cartridge for this project. Unfortunately my Imagine was not working with my Art Philosophy cartridge so I had to take the more time consuming route of printing out the papers in the Imagine and cutting out the Art Philosophy cuts with my Expression. Both the turkey and the leaves are cut using images from Enjoy the Seasons. The bag and square frames are cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I inked up the edges of the bag using Distress inks before I assembled the bag. I also inked up the edges of the square frames. The turkey is embellished with a black pearl for an eye and I added Martha Stewart red glitter with a glue pen. The "a day of giving thanks" sentiment is from the Close to My Heart "Pair-a-Phrase" stamp set. The leaves are also embellished with a glue pen and Martha Stewart glitter. Then I just added a little twine and ribbon to finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed my project. Thanks for stopping by!

KinderStampO's Sketchy Wednesday



Good morning everyone! It's time for KinderStampO's sketchy Wednesday. I have included a picture of the sketch and my card. This is my first project with the new Santa's Village Imagine cartridge. I LOVE this cartridge! Santa is three layers tall with his torso popped up and his arm popped up on top of that. I love the dimension that this creates but it doesn't translate well in this picture. His boots are also popped up. This cartridge really allows you to do a lot of layering if that's the look you desire. The present is on top of a handmade rosette and I added some Glossy Accents to the bow top. The sentiment is from KinderStampo's "Greetings From Home" stamp set. I'm really happy with how this turned out and it was so super simple to put together thanks to the Imagine. Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic day.

KinderStampO's Color it Monday


Hello everyone! I just got back from the local Scrapbooking Expo and I was so excited to use my new toys from the show! For this card I used a stamp and die set from Heartfelt Creations to make the flowers. The stamps and the dies coordinate perfectly together. I stamped the flowers with black ink and then cut them with the matching dies. After that I colored them in with Copic markers and added Coral Reef and Vanilla Breeze Glimmer Mist sprays to them as well. I darkened the edges with Distress ink and glued a little Martha Stewart glitter to the inside of the flowers. The stamp set I used for the sentiment is from KinderStampO's "Greetings From Home" stamp set. I hope you enjoy!

KinderStampO's Color it Monday



Hello everyone! Here is another submission for KinderStampO's color it Monday. I love how the colors work together in this card. It's very bright and fun. I used KinderStampO's "Greetings From Home" stamp set for the sentiment. I used an Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm and Copic markers to color the stamp in. The flowers are Prima and their brad centers are from Close to My Heart. The orange cardstock is cut with a Martha Stewart border punch and I topped it all off with a ribbon from my stash. Thanks so much for stopping by!
