Kraftin' Kimmie Danny

Hi there,

I was SO happy to get this stamp!  Finally an image I could use for both my father and my father-in-law!  Actually my father-in-law rides a motorbike, so it's PERFECT for him!

Both of their birthdays are this month, so I made two of this card.

This is Danny from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black, on Xpress Blending paper, and coloured with Copics.

C.C. Designs Sugarplums Bride Emma

We had the pleasure of hosting a bridal shower at work for a colleague - what fun!  I LOVE all things wedding and baby.  I wish I'd been a professional party planner!

Of course, I had to make a shower card for Jackie - and here's what I came up with.

I bought this stamps especially for the occasion, because this little image is so sweet - she reminds me of Precious Moments, which I love, and seem so personal and romantic.

I've used my latest favourite paper series - Bo Bunny Gabrielle - with the coordinating elements and ribbons.  I LOVE these series with all of the matching components.  It makes colour matching a breeze!  I've used a labels Nestabilities set from Spellbinders and some Prima flowers to bring out the turquoise (my favourite colour - and what a great combo with peachy pink).

I stamped Emma on XPress Blend it paper with Memento tuxedo black and coloured her in with Copics (of course).  I used E50, and a little E40 & E41 in the shadows, for the dress and veil - always tricky to do a large area of white.

Happy Mother's Day!
