Krafty Friend on the Kraftin Kimmie Blog Hop

Morning everyone, I am excited to be part of the Kraftin Kimmie blog hop to promote the new sentiments stamps from the new designer Becky Pearce, who is the other Cards By Becky in the crafty world. I was so honoured that Becky thought of me to promote her new venture, I just hope that I have done her work justice.

Becky's new sets feature larger sized fun sentiments featuring a mixture of gorgeous fonts!! This very first set is a beautiful birthday set perfect to use on their own on a more simple design or in combination with a focal image and a more fancy design! We know you're going to love all the amazing creations on today's hop full of inspiration!! 
Be sure to leave some love at every stop because one lucky random WINNER will receive a $10 gift voucher to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!! All of this week's winners will be announced at our LIVE Online Release Party on Sunday afternoon!!! ALL the new stamp sets we are previewing this week will be released on Sunday afternoon!!

I have to admit, I do tend to either forget or struggle to add seperate sentiments, but I love these bigger sentiments that you can add to your image either before or after you colour them in, it makes them a bit more personal.

I have coloured Lola Lollipop in with my Inktense pencils, added glamour dust and shabby blue frantage. The papers are from Maja Designs 6x6 pad Coffee In The Arbour.

Summer Is On It's Way..........

Good morning everyone, I'm with my last card here for this year at Live and Love Crafts! I don't know about you, but I don't like the cold, I think the snow is pretty when it falls (not that we have had any yet), and when it first lays, then after that it can go away. At least when Christmas gets here it is past the Winter Solstice, so we know that the lighter nights are on their way, so it is a long way off, but Summer IS on it's way!

I have used one of the vintage images from Pion Design, this is from the Family sheet, I have added some glamour dust to her flowers though, I love my sparkle. The papers are from Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics, all of the edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool.

Here's my arty shot, I decided to make a sort of frame with some pearl string. For the butterfly I used Versamark ink and then used shabby pink frantage, sprinkled frantage looks fab, but it also looks good when it all melts into itself.

Thank you for popping by.

Pretty Parade

Hello everyone, I'm here with my card made with Live and Love Crafts using one of the new sweet stamps from LOTV Pretty Parade.

Isn't she so cute with her dressed up teddies following her? I have used my Inktense pencils to colour the image in. I have used versamark embossing ink to stamp a few hearts and then sprinkled some shabby blue frantage on, this gives just the hint of a few hearts.

The papers are from the 6x6 paper pad Coffee In The Arbour from Maja Road, the edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool.

Sorry I have been MIA for a while, I have had an evil bug and have spent about a solid week sleeping, I'm eventually on the mend, but it has totally wiped me out.

Thanks for popping by,


Becky xx
