Hi everybody! Today I"m up on the Craft Fantastic Blog sharing my first post for the Craft Fantastic All Stars Design Team! For my first project I wanted to show you the versatility of these products and how you can incorporate them into many facets of your crafty life. Click on over to the Craft Fantastic Blog to get a list of supplies and see how I created the charms on this card, a special necklace, and the matching gift back tag. (shown below)
How I made this card:
1. I started with an A2 piece of red cardstock as my base.
2. Cut a piece of patterned paper with this elegant script on it and adhered to the cardbase.
3. Stamped the heart image onto the script panel in red ink.
4. Die cut the heart banner, added red cardstock to the back of the open hearts, added twine, and adhered to card.
5. To create and attach the charms to the card click on Craft Fantastic Blog for a list of supplies and a step by step tutorial. (My new favorite tools)
And then you can adhere the charms to the card.
6. Add the "XOXO" sticker to the card.
**To mail a special card like this I recommend using a bubble envelope or a small USPS box**

Happy Valentines! Whether you celebrate February 14th or not you can always use a simple card for a lovey dovey type occasion any time of year, just change the sentiment. And if you do make Valentines cards, don't fret, there is still time to sneak in some card making before Tuesday. I'll show you how I made these quick and adorable cards for my daughter and three sons with just a few supplies and lots of tips too.
If you cut an 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock in half, then those two pieces when folded will become two A2 cards. So for my kids cards I only need two pieces of red cardstock to get four card bases. Then I die cut black scallop stitched cardstock panels and adhered those to the card bases.
I love to mix and match stamps and use stamps I haven't ever used or haven't used in a long time. So here is an assortment from my "valentines" stash with a few from my sister (cuuuute-spiders and butterfly). Some are old and some are current. So, don't fret if you don't have these or can't find them, just use what you have. Or use your machines, die cuts, or punches to cut out a jar, hearts, butterflies, or spiders.
I stamped the jar with black ink on white cardstock. And in alternating distress ink colors stamped all the "candy" hearts to fill up the jars and leaving room at the top for the stamped sentiments. I also did some two-step or second generation stamping too. If you don't know what that means, I'll explain. You ink up your stamp like normal, stamp on your cardstock once, then stamp a second time, without re-inking, in a different location on your cardstock to get a lighter inked image of the same stamp. It creates some depth and filled my jar up. And attached a paper doily at the top of each jar and trimmed to fit the top of the jars. Adhered jars to black panels of the cards.
Next I stamped all the cute spiders and butterfly on white cardstock, colored them in with watercolor/distress markers and a blender pen, fussy cut them out, and adhered to the jars. I could have popped them up, but I wanted them flat for mailing. And added a piece of ornate ribbon at the top to finish up my cards. I hope I've inspired you to mix and match your stamps, holidays, and create something great!
Thanks for stopping by! ~Kim

This week we celebrated my youngest two kids birthdays, who are fraternal twins. And of course I made them birthday cards, but not just any cards. These are fun die cut flip cards, that my boys love, and they are similar, as you can see, but different. Just like them. Happy Birthday, Boys!
Happy New Year! I hope 2017 finds you happy, healthy, and crafty. And speaking of crafty I continue our family tradition of making "thank you" cards after the holidays. I was taught by my mom, who was taught by her mom, to send thank you notes for gifts. And it's my ongoing resolution to continue that tradition with all four of my kids too. Of course in today's day and age they would rather send an email note, which I think is better than nothing, I prefer they do it properly. So, if I make the handmade cards then they will write a special note and sign them...
Thank you for all your kind words and support of my crafty adventures!
I love reading your comments and hearing about your projects.

Happy Fall Ya'll! Here in Colorado the leaves have mostly turned golden yellow, orange, and some red. It's getting windy, which will blow them all away. Which inspired me to create this Fall card with the Fall colors and the leaves blowing in the wind with Epiphany Crafts Tools...click read more...
Happy Birthday, Mom! We had a lovely special lunch just me, my little sister, and our parents. It's never just the four of us, with no kids and no husbands. It's usually the fourteen of us or more. lol. And my mom finally attended her first craft show and even won some free products too! A very fun day and lots of laughs with my sister too (Riley stamps are a hoot).
And as some of you may or may not know, this time of year, I make A LOT of family birthday cards (like nine, before I start Christmas cards) and Fall themes are my absolute favorite, but this year I wanted to make something different and try some different products and techniques.

April showers bring May flowers, except in CO...mother nature tends to toy with us and extend winter until the end of May. And it's been wet and cooooold! But that didn't spoil my Spring surprise for my Mom with this flowery card I made. Click "read more" for tutorial and materials list...
