Krafting with a K

My Photo
I love pretty things, and since there are so many venues out there, I chose paper, pen and ink to fulfill the artist within. There is nothing more enjoyable than sharing my passion at the kitchen table with my daughters. Happy Krafting!

I believe in Fairies!

Good Morning!

I am officially a year older this month, but I have to say 
"I still believe in Fairies".

Today I am going to show you another of my Eat Cake Graphics cards.

Eat Cake Graphics stamps used:

This is a very layered card, and after cutting my layers and punching out the edges, I stamped the flower image on top of pattern paper. You can see the pattern on the paper showing through the flowers.  It was a spur of the moment idea, and I rather like the way it turned out.   

I continued to stamp, color and cut out Fairy Nuff, doing the same for some of the flowers, which were then added to bring more dimension to the card. 

To me this is a magical card. My girls LOVE fairies, and they always ask me if I believe in them.  
I always answer
 “If I don’t believe in fairies, then it's like not believing in magic, and what is life without a little magic?”

Happy Krafting!

Hope your day is just right!

Good Morning,

Today is Thursday/Friday.  A LONG weekend, woohoo!

I am going through my paper scraps and putting together layers. For this card I used my Lily Bee paper scraps.

The image is a Kraftin Kimmie stamp from the Once Upon a Time 3 stamp set.  She is uber cute!  My youngest LUVS hugging any stuffed animals (stuffies)  and believes that when she sleeps they play all night.I colored her in to match my daughters tones, and will someday gift this to her.

Topping off the card, I added  a couple of shaped sequins in the right bottom corner, some bling, and Lily Bee Cardboard shapes.

I am entering this into Kraftin Kimmie's Wonderful Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.

Happy Krafting!

My Guy

Good Morning,

Here is my adorable Smile  stamp that my darling husband bought me a few years ago for Christmas.  It is a Stampotique Originals Stamp.  I adore the quirky, not so "normal" images they have by Daniel Torrente and Jill Penney.

This was an easy peasy card to make.  I took out my Scenic Route paper, and cropped them to fit a 4 x 4 card.

Smile was colored with my prismacolor pencils.  To finish it off I added the American Crafts letters, some bling, and the Happy Anniversary stickers.  Yup, this one was for my darling husband on our anniversary.

Stampotique currently has a New Release Blog Hop going on.  The images are stunning, I urge you to drop by.  You can find the start of the Blog Hop HERE.

Have a Krafty Day Peeps!

For my Man


As you guys have seen, the majority of my crafts tend to be on the feminine side.  So today I thought I would show you the card I made for my much loved husband.

I really had fun with this one. Adding layers, embellishments and bling. No Coloring!

The sentiment fits him perfectly as he is fun loving and has read many Dr. Seuss books. Not only as a child, but with his darling daughters as well.  We love to be silly in this house!

Without my husband, I would not be the strong, fun-loving, caring person I am today.  He makes me strive to be a better person.

Happy Krafting!

One Star at Twilight

Good Morning!

It feels so good to be back in blog land, please drop a comment to let me know how all you crafty ladies are doing!

Here we are with my Eat Cake Graphics DT card using

Bert Batula (5033-D) and
Skully Flowers (7077-E)

I am quirky, and I love bats and skulls and monotone/earthy colors. The idea for this card came from the Design Paper.  Twilight, Stars, Bats, Friends and a quirky sentiment to remind the friend I am sending this to that I am thinking of her.

What kind of Quirky things do you like?  What are your favorite colors?

I am in a crafty mood, so stay tuned, there will be more creations coming your way.

Happy Krafting,

Easter Greetings with Eat Cake Graphics

Good Morning!

Here is my latest card for Eat Cake Graphics.  A sunny Easter card using my cute Carrot Top stamp (5037-F)

I used my Sassafras Lass paper, a wonderful company that is no longer making paper (sniff sniff). I colored Carrot Top with my pencils, and took out my grass die and my Stampin Up Punches.  The eggs in the right hand corner were created with the oval punch.  They blend in with the paper but that is how I wanted them.  Carrot Top is leaving behind hidden eggs for children big and small to find!

Is it bright enough for you?  I hope it brings about sunshine and warmth for Easter.

I would LOVE to hear from all of you.  Be sure to head over to the Eat Cake Graphics blog to view many cute creations from the new and creative Design Team. 

Happy Krafting!

So glad we're friends

Hello Bloggers!

How are you today?  I certainly hope Spring decides to visit Ottawa soon.  It is really affecting the moods of my family.  We are all ready for some warmth.

In the meantime,  here is my second post for Eat Cake Graphics. 

Easter is coming up, and I just had to use these two adorable pals (Carrot Top and Thurston the bear) to create a bright and fresh looking card.  Thurston even took out his Easter Ears, to celebrate.

The Eat Cake Graphic stamps used were;
4008-G Thurston ponders with his hand on his chin
5037-F Carrot Top (bunny)
7043-B Just a carrot
8091-J Bunny ears (set of 2)

This card was made from left over scraps in my "collection of many things that will eventually be used" box. I have a hard time throwing pretty things out.

Hope to hear your thoughts on this card.  I love hearing about what you liked and did not like about my creations.  Art is in the eye of the beholder, and we all see things so very differently.

Until next time,
Keep Krafting!
