You’re Going Places!

Time for another challenge with Kraftin Kimmie!   Today the Krafty Girls are using images from the new exclusive set, Going Places!  My card today is my favorite of my samples for this set.  :)

This week Sharon has challenged us to use “Heavy Metal,” faux, real or included in our images.

I just adore this girl on her bike.  So fun.  :)

I colored with Copics then added silver brads in the die-cut flower centers.

Be sure to check out more Heavy Metal samples HERE.  If you decide to play along, be sure to post a link there on the Krafty Blog for your chance to win a free stamp (from this release!)  from Kraftin Kimmie!  :)

And don’t forget to check out this week’s Frugal Friday specials (HERE)!

MFT Previews, Day 4 – Cheers to You

We’re moving on to Day 4 of April previews with My Favorite Things!

Today we’re previewing a fun new Die-namics/Stamp Set combo, Let’s Toast.

I searched on-line and found a wine-shaped card template HERE.  At approximately 4″ x 11″ it’s rather large, but I like it.  :)  I scored the top a few times to help create that “bottle top” look.

I used our new Circle STAX to create the label, the small circle tag from the Let’s Toast set to create the “Make a Wish” tag, and the Large Leafy Flourish was used to help fill the empty space.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the set and added a little die-cut wine glass.  The die-cut bottle tag allows for a super-quick decoration for your favorite gift-giving bottle.  (The bottle of Horton XOCO is mine and will NOT be gifted.  Y-U-M-M-Y.)
