There's a stamp for that Challenge 35: with Kinda cute by Patricia


I'm excited to share my latest card using There's a stamp for that Facebook Challenge group 35: Easel Card, no pattern paper, and sketch used with permission from Mojo monday! 

Kinda cute by Patricia has this cutie: Girl Picking Berries Digital Stamp for April's facebook challenge. I coloured her up in a rosy colour scheme, and used some darker yellow greens for the berry bush. 

After I coloured her I realize that she needed a cloudy background, but I didn't want to use the typical sky blue, so I decided to colour it with some soft pinks to give it a bit more of a whimsical feel. 

To make the card I chose to try to make a mini slim line card loosly based on the sketch, I added some berry die cut chipboard I had in my stash, and a chipboard wreath to create the prop portion of the easel card. 

I stayed true to  the prompt to not use any pattern paper and chose Kraftin Kimmie Cozy Check Stencil
to create the background layer. I went simple as I really like tone on tone for layers behind my image. 

Lastly I stamped a sentiment from my stash and put the card all together. 

I was dreaming of late spring/ early summer days when coming up with his berry themed card. Every year I yearn for a raspberry bush of my own, but I have not inherited a green thumb, and I'm sometimes to busy to work on my yard. Maybe this will be the year, but first got to wait for the weather to not be freezing! 

Hope you have a sun-shiny day!




The rainbow connection A Kraftin Kimmie challenge

 Hello everyone! 

Last post for tonight! I promise! 

I woke up this morning with a yearning to colour up some butterflies! 

I thought it may be fun to use the Rainbow connection challenge to create a colourful rainbow butterfly card.

I started, by heat embossing Kraftin Kimmie Butterfly dreams stamp set in gold. I then coloured each butterfly with Copics in rainbow order (well attempted at least). 

Then to add dramatic contrast I took my black Copic marker and coloured in the rest of the background. This really made the butterflies pop out, and I think added a black velvet poster look to the card.

I wanted to use the larger die cut frame behind my panel, but found the white a little boring, so I took Kraftin Kimmie Granite Grey ink and stamped the butterflies behind the main panel. This made it look almost like a sketchbook look.

Lastly, I embellished with Krafty dots in co-ordinating colours, some twinkly twine, and a wooden rage heat embossed in gold.

There’s A Stamp For That 34: You deserve a break

Hello Everyone! 

Please bear with me as I try and figure out this blogger thing… I’m a bit Rusty. 

I would like to share my inspiration post for There’s a Stamp For That Challenge 34: Get Well, numbers, and mini slimline card.

I thought the face mask girl from A-bit-smart-assy 2 from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps would be fun to paint.

I started by stamping her with Kraftin Kimmie Pretty in pink ink. This created a softer rosy no-lines look that I absolutely adore. 

I then used my Daniel Smith watercolours to paint the stamp. 

I wanted to make sure that I had a number somewhere, so I typed up a sentiment and printed it with my computer. Lastly, I decorated the card with a die cut chair from pattern paper, krafty enamel dots, and mulberry flowers. 

This card is a great reminder that we all need to take care of ourselves. 

Thanks for looking!


Dusting off the old blog: Quick March Recap

 Hello Everyone! 

After a couple years I'm back with a feather duster in hand to dust off the old blog. 

I do find blogging hard, but I think that it's a great way to go into more detail of the supplies and techniques used to create my colourful projects. 

I wanted to start off by doing a quick recap of the projects I made in March. 

1.) Kinda Cute by Patricia: Boy Doing Exercise

I had fun creating my own soccer net and soccer ball for this card! I'm not one who usually draws, so it was definitely something I'm proud of! 

He was the digital stamp for March's Facebook Kindacutebypatricia challenge. 

2.) Kinda Cute by Patricia: Unicorn With Cotton Candy

One of my favorite projects I made this month was using this sweet unicorn and some pretty papers from my stash. I chose a different colour combo for her main body by using a cream colour and adding depth with blue violet markers. 

3.) Challenge 33: There's A Stamp for That: Easter, Stamp set older than a year, and stripes
Kraftin Kimmie Stamps: Fawn'd Of You


I made this cute little tri-fold Easter card for the challenge. I had so much fun trying a fun fold and working on a bit of a smaller card. I coloured the bunny with copics, and watercoloured smooshed the eggs in dreamy pastel colours 

4.) Kinda Cute by Patricia: Sibling with Puppy

I tried something new by using March's Sheetload of cards sketch to create these 4 cards. I actually really enjoyed myself, although I must admit that watercolouring all 4 images took some time! 

I had to watercolour the pup in black as he so reminded me of my beloved Cobi. 

5.) Kraftin Kimmie Stamps: Forest Friends

Kraftin Kimmie had her Spring Virtual retreat this month, and it reminded me of the spring retreat that we did last year, where I painted this gorgeous image with Krafty Girl Melanie. 

I decided it was about time that I put this image on a card. I used some extra bits from the kit including the gorgeous florals. 

I entered it in the March Spring Retreat Facebook Challenge: Purple (couldn't resist the colour with the pretty whimsical mushroom). 

I'm pretty happy with the amount of cards I was able to make this month!
