To an old goat!


Hi Friends, Today I'm sharing 2 cute cards using Simon Says Stamp goat image from the cute set Birthday Farm Animals!. One is done in Copics and the other, colored pencils. This animal stamps are so darn cute and I have reached for them many times.

 Super simple card layouts, I just layered patterned papers, the first one My Minds Eye and the second one Simple stories (?). I used a sketch but don't remember which one since I made these months ago and didn't share until now. And layered the colored, die cut circle on top. A few simple embellishments and done! Great masculine cards.


Simon Say Stamp Wednesday Challenge -All creatures Great and Small
Creative Card Crew 81 -Birthday with sentiment
Sweet Stamps Blog -Happy Birthday
Addicted to Stamps 98 -Embossing Dry or Heat (the 2nd card has dry embossing)

Thanks for visiting!

Hello Friend





Hey everyone!! Welcome back to day THREE of our FEBRUARY Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!!! Have you been enjoying the peeks so far?? All of our brand new rubber stamp sets will be released Saturday night!

For today's card I used Fancy Pants paper to create a cute sentiment-focused card. I stamped one of the wonderful sentiments from the new set "Hello Friend" with SU gray ink onto a MFT Stitched Circle die. I sponged Momento ink while still in the die. After die cutting a few MFT fishtale banners and the background with a Lil' Inkers stitched reqtangle, I layered them all together. Some "Twinery" twine and various makers of enamel dots finish it. BTW, those red looking dots are pink, the really do match, honest! :)




Today we are SO thrilled to share the newest set of elegant sentiments by artist BECKY PEARCE! This set features some lovely words about friendship in beautiful fonts and is called HELLO, FRIEND!! This set includes NINE lovely sentiments!



Are you planning to join us for our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!!! Hope you can join us for all the fun and excitement and prizes tomorrow night beginning at 6pm EST!! Hope you can come hang out with the me and Krafty Girls!
