Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is an online Canadian stamp company with whimsical stamps from several different artists, catering to cardmakers and scrapbookers with lots of different styles! If you like to colour….you’ll love our images!!! Check us out at our krafty SHOP!
I’ve used an image from the new Kraftin’ Kimmie Canine Capers 2 set.  I adore this image. I colored her to look like my little Michou.
I stamped the image onto Copic X-press It with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Copic Markers.  The Sentiment “No Bones About it. . . You’re Awesome” is included with the image, but I chose to break it apart and stamp the first line onto a piece of paper and cut it into a bone shape. The second line was stamped inside the card (huff method).
Materials used:  X-press it, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Copic Markers, DP’s (Basic Grey - Curio Collection), Tim Holtz Swirl die cut, SU cardstock, Sakura Stardust Pen, and bone buttons from stash.
** Please make sure to hop through the entire list of participants since we will be giving away some super cute Kraftin Kimmie Stamps to random commenters on the DT member’s blogs!

Tilda and her Bunny

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Woo Hoo Wednesday!!!!  The flooring goes into my craft room today!!!!!  Have you noticed that the mail and shipping has been delayed?  Could it be the weather delaying transport??  I know we’ve had a major storm system on the Coquihalla – I guess it is that time of the year!

Today I’ve got a Magnolia Stamp called Tilda and her Bunny.  I loved this little stamp way back when it first came out……….I love her hat!  I’m so happy that Lora is carrying Magnolia’s once again – doing cartwheels happy!!


I tried to “glam her up a bit” by adding flowers and pearls and a very ornate punch……I think I overdid it.  A very good friend keeps sending me wonderful DP’s and I really wanted to tie Tilda in with mauve and pink and turquoise.

Materials used:  Tilda with her Bunny, Xpress Blend-it Memento ink, copic markers, flowers from OCS, An EK Success Border stamp, and Rhinestone and pearls

I loved the way her hat, pants, and shirt turned out – but the front of the shirt has issues…………  I tried to make polka dots…… it is abstract. 

The Design Team for OCS has once been filled until next May,  but please keep submitting your work to the monthly challenge for the chance to win free stuff!!

The inside of my card is quite plain, but I do like this stamp.  So toodles until next Wednesday……….. 

Rubber hugz,
