It's Wonderful Wednesday time!! We hope you can play along!! As always....it's ANYTHING GOES!! Break out your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and get krafty!!
Have you checked out the NEW release yet?!? It's available NOW in the Krafty store! While you're there be sure to pick up your Halloween Kard kit, these kits are limited and ALWAYS sell out quick!!

 
I'm using one of the stamps from the newly released "Treat For Someone Sweet" stamp set.  I love this little robot....reminds of the days when Halloween costumes were handmade and not bought at the local store!  I usually make larger cards but I wanted to showcase the stamp so I went with an A2 size card base.  The designer paper is from my leftover stash and I used the Gears embossing folder by Cuttlebug for the blue panel.  For a bit of embellishment I went with brown brads and brown ribbon.  The sentiment is part of the stamp set and it's perfect for this guy!!  Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for having a look!

Lovely Mariposa!

This is a beautiful digital image from Artbymiran called "Maria Mariposa".  She does just gorgeous art drawings!  I have colored this image with Copics and used Stampendous Frantage Shabby Pink embossing powder.  This was my first time trying Frantage and I love it.  It seemed a bit strange heat setting it from the underside of the image but it gives a gorgeous effect.  Will definitely be using this technique again and again!  The framing is the Spellbinder Floral Ovals die.  The designer paper is from the Penny Black Coco Style paper pad.  Lacy border punch and butterfly punch are by MS.  The black brads are by Doodlebug.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your week!!
