When I saw this image, I knew I had to use it because I've seen my son in this exact pose!  I coloured him up with my copics and matched my image up with some older Doodlebug patterned papers.  The layout is last week's Deconstructed Sketch and I added some icicles and snowflakes cut from more of that sugar coated cardstock (I told you I loved this stuff!).

Krafty Peeks - Day 1

The weather is getting a little cooler....we're putting away our flip flops and shorts and pulling out our fuzzy sweaters and warm socks!! We're celebrating winter at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ...and lots more!! (You'll have to wait until later in the week to see what other themes we have up our sleeves!!) Get ready for our OCTOBER 2012 RELEASE!

We are kicking off the *New* OCTOBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and first off, we’d like to introduce you to a beautiful new set of Trinkets! We are very excited to share with you our….WINTER TRINKETS!

These circular sentiment stamps have been created and designed by the totally talented Krafty Girl, Nicole Aspinall! They are made especially to fit in your 1 3/8ths and 1 ¾ inch punches, for quick and easy cutting!!! This month we are releasing the WINTER Trinkets set which includes EIGHT trinkets in each set with four of each size and they come as both positive and negative images, so you can use your black or brown ink with the positive stamps and use your coloured inks with the negative ones!! You will get the set as a completely unmounted full sheet of deeply etched grey rubber.

I chose to use one of the bigger trinkets for my card because I happened upon an older Mojo Monday sketch that worked perfectly with this size circle! I matted it a couple times and paired it up with some BoBunny papers from last year.  I also cut some snowflakes and icicles from some Doodlebug Sugar Coated cardstock (totally love this stuff!).  

Now just you wait 'til you see the awesome samples the Krafty Girls have put together for you....and be sure to comment on each and every stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN the new WINTER TRINKETS set!

October Sketch for You to Try - Take 2!

I'm back again today with my second Sketch For You To Try card for October. You might remember that we're sponsored this month by Market Street Stamps and I'm using the Gone Campin set again. 

 I just love these smiley marshmallows - how cute are they?  My son loves roasting marshmallow so that may have influenced my choosing this set.  I stamped the image and sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa ink for something a little different.  I only used an R20 copic marker for their cheeks and a W1 and W00 to do a bit of shading.  I coated the branch with my Sakura Clear Glaze pen to give it some texture.  I decided to straighten out those diagonal tabs on the sketch (hey - I kept them as they were last time!) and added some twine and a button for embellishment.  The papers are from an older Jillybean Soup line.    

Don't forget to hop over and see what my sketch sisters have cooked up for you as well. And you can visit Jen's blog to link up your card for your chance to win big at the end of the year!

October Sketch For You To Try!

Well hello!!  I know - it's been a while since I've blogged, actually it's been a while since I've stamped! Life is busy and getting the better of me right now, but I hope to have some more time in the next couple of weeks!  Today is actually my son's tenth birthday and we're prepping to have some boys over for a sleepover.  Which begs the question: What the heck have I gotten myself into?  and secondly, how is it possible that my baby is 10?!!

Anyway, onto to the actual stamping stuff.  This month we have a super fun sketch with lots of layers!  We're sponsored this month by Market Street Stamps - and this was actually my first time working with their images!  I love their whimsical style and of course they stamp like a dream.  I fell in love with the Gone Campin' set.  I mean, hello?  marshmallows with faces?  Yes please!

I kept it pretty simple by not matting any of my layers and combined the mosquito image with this fabulous sentiment for my image panel.  I embossed the background panel with the Stampin Up Woodgrain embossing folder and used some of their tulle ribbon for the little tab parts of the sketch - I was hoping it would look like mosquito netting!

Here's the fabulous sketch!  I hope you'll play along with us at some point this month!

You'll definitely want to hop over and see what the rest of my sketch sisters have cooked up for you - they're amazing!
