Guest Designer for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

I am thrilled and excited to be a guest designer for the month of December with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  It’s a little intimidating to work with the incredibly talented Krafty Girls.  I am sure I will learn a lot from the ladies.

This week’s challenge #157 is ”Baby It’s Cold Outside” creating snow or cold weather projects.  I am using the rubber stamp “Maxwell Snowboarding” for a Christmas card.


He is just too darn cute!  I created a slider card so that Maxwell could actually snowboard down the card.  I colored the image with copics and then stamped another image on thicker black card stock and glued them together to give more stability to the image. I used a penny which I covered with white card stock and then used a dimensional to adhere Maxwell to the penny.  I added a little glitter to his gloves and scarf.  I also added white applique to the snow on the leaf. 


The paper is from the ‘Snowed In’ paper pad by My Mind’s Eye.  Martha Stewart clear glitter to form the mountains.  The sentiment came with the rubber stamp.  Some colored seed beads on the bottom for decoration and depth.

I hope you will join us this week for a fun challenge.  Don’t forget to check out the DT’s gorgeous work.  Have a wonderful week-end!
