Feeling Festive with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Good morning and welcome to our weekly challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Our hostess today is the lovely and oh so talented Elaine Hughes. Her challenge is "Feeling Festive"...she wants to see holiday themed cards or projects. :)

I decided to play with the Holiday Trinkets and create an ornament. The Trinkets have been such a fantastic addition to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps lines. They are fantastic for cards, scrapbook layouts, tags, journals, custom gift packaging and so many other possibilities! To create my ornament, I followed parts of this TUTORIAL by the very talented Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace...this site is a fantastic source of inspiration! Becca's style is so elegant. This 3D ornament is created by cutting out four Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Pendants. The pendants are then scored, folded and adhered together to create this snowflake-like base. The full instructions for scoring and folding can be found in the above link to the tutorial. (I omitted the ribbon spool and just matched up the pendants and glued them together) I added some rhinestones and then spritzed the entire white ornament with Glimmer Mist. I also added some dimensional silver embellishments that I picked up at a local craft store on a sale rack a while back. I stamped the Holiday Trinket on white cardstock in Memento Ink and coloured portions of it with my B21 Copic marker. This was then spritzed with the Glimmer Mist, trimmed out and matted with silver cardstock cut out with Spellbinders Lacey Circles. Add a loop of silver ribbon and you're done. :)



I wish the shimmer showed up better in this picture...it really is quite sparkly in real life!

We'd love to have you play along with our Feeling Festive challenge this week. If you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your project, you could be the lucky winner of the stamp used on Elaine's gorgeous card.

Don't forget to check out the incredible SALE going on at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Some of the sale stamps are being retired, so this could be your last chance to get them...scoop them up quickly as quantities are limited and some have already sold out! The November Gimmie Kimmie Kits are also still available for a limited time! These kits of the new release stamps are grouped together by artist and offered at a fantastic discount. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Blessings,

Melanie
