Red, White, Blue and "Thinking of You"...as I'm dreaming of a sandy beach, waves crashing on the rocks, the warm sunshine on my face, and a fruity drink. Oh! And lighthouses too! I just love them. Don't you? Which one is your favorite? They remind me of family vacations and you can feel all that history when you're standing in front of them. Which say all American to me and I love sharing that history with my kids. So I wanted this card to be red, white, and blue in all it's patriotic glory. And this Eat Cake Graphics lighthouse stamp goes perfect with this Graphic 45 nautical paper collection. Don't you think?

Easter is Sunday, March 27, 2016 this year! So, that does not leave a lot of time to make cards. Do you make Easter cards? If so, post them on Facebook and show me what you've made. I'd love to see them.
I was inspired to create these fun flip card by the shapes and colors from "The House That Stamps Built" challenge. I love the pink, blue, and purple colors. And I think the bunny ears look like hearts. The sentiment I downloaded a printable and printed it from my computer in color on white cardstock and punched it out. ~Kim
Happy Holidays everybody! Do you love pattern paper as much as I do?
I don’t know…I collect A LOT of it. So, now it’s time to use some of it. I mixed and matched teal green wood grain, red bandanna, a quilt print, and a candy cane print. WOW! I told you we were using A LOT of pattern paper, but I think they represent this holiday card pretty well. Don’t you?
So get your prints out and see what you can come up with and post them to My Kraft Kloset Facebook page. I’d love to see them.
I created this card for the Eat Cake Graphics design team. Using the card above as a guide, start with a kraft colored card base, and adhere the three different pattern papers down.
Happy Fall Y’all! I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this time of year when all the leaves change colors and the elk and moose come out in abundance. I made this wonderful card for my design team Eat Cake Graphics. This incredible stamp is one whole piece and reminds me of my gorgeous Rocky Mountains with it's shimmery snow capped mountains, green pine trees, and the moose...
Happy (almost) Halloween! Do you make Halloween cards? I do sometimes, as it's one of my favorite holidays and I have TONS of Halloween stamps. But I have LOTS of birthdays between September and April that I make birthday cards for. So I don't usually have time to make any, but I did squeeze in this lovely spooky card.
I love creating one of a kind backgrounds and this one definitely reminded me of a spooky night with the fog creeping in. I recommend using a watercolor paper when using watercolor inks, markers, crayons, pencils, or blending with water. Because it's absorbent, it won't buckle, or pill when you are blending or adding more water...
Summer is here and it’s time for Stuart and Scooter to go on an adventure. They remind us to never stop playing, smiling, and dreaming. And this
Eat Cake Graphics stamp is versatile for so many occasions. I love this postage stamp embossed paper and how it pops against the red card base. I think it is from a Teresa Collins travel pad, I'll try and find it and let you know. Sorry, I think I'll remember and I don't. I need to be better about writing things down when I'm creating. I love the 6x6 pads for card making, their just the right size and I seem to collect a lot of them. Anyways, this paper is perfect for documenting all their travels.
Can you see the sheen? I stamped the image of Stuart and Scooter with Versafine onyx black ink and colored it with Copic markers, Ranger Tim Holtz mini brown ink and a SU blender pen, and a little bling here and there with spica glitter pens to make it sparkle, of course. Can you see the bling on the goggles, the arrow, and the wheels? I accented the die cut sentiment (from the same pad) and the stamp image with BoBunny blue dot pattern paper for background matting, punched them out, and popped them up with 3D foam adhesive dots. Attached a border strip that resembled airmail postage. And added some Authentique sticker words, star adhesive gems, and red/white bakers twine to make it complete. Where will your next adventure take you?

I'm a mom of one daughter and three sons and I get tickled pink when I get to make cards for girls. This adorable card is a throwback to Stampin' Up and I dug out some retired stamps that are still my favorites. For this adorable card I used itty bitty background stamps with versamark clear ink to create a unique soft background. Tied ribbon around a strip of polka dot pattern paper and adhered to card panel. Used the crib notes stamp set for the pig and sentiment, which I stamped with versafine onyx black, colored in with SU watercolor markers, and added an adorable tiny button for the nose. I recommend glue dots for adhering buttons or you can use a button brad. Punch out the pig and matching pink circle and adhered to pink panel. Take the whole pink panel and adhere to teal card base and add some random stickles diamond glitter glue to some polka dots for sparkle. See what you can do with buttons and get those stamps out and play!

The Crafters Cafe Challenge: #127 - Use Some Buttons - 29 July, 2015
It's summertime and LOTS of babies are being born. I made this simple baby boy card with just white and blue with layered circles stamped with white ink; polka dot pattern paper; buttons colored with copic makers to mimic woodgrain; a "welcome, baby sentiment stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink; a sweet border punch; and a printed ribbon to finish it up.

The House That Stamps Built-DCC78 ~ White Plus One Color
April showers bring May flowers and these magical flowers by Eat Cake Graphics stamps are buzzing with activity. I don't know about you...but we've had 30 straight days of rain and the flowers and trees are budding and blooming everywhere. If you're area has been hard hit by traumatic Spring weather I hope your safe and you're in our thoughts.
Here is a close up so you can see the unique mottled watercolor background, the fuzzy or mossy effect of the flower soft, and the sparkle everywhere...
May is also the month for many graduations: elementary, continuation, high school, college, etc... When I saw this stamp from Eat Cake Graphics of Hank (the dog) riding on his Hoover vacuum, I knew I wanted a banner behind him announcing the occasion...
Sophie Willoughby has a card for her Mom for Mother’s Day. When I saw this adorable stamp from Eat Cake Graphics Stamps it had a letter addressed to Santa. Which would be cute for Christmas or a Birthday card too! But I wanted to mask it and make it a card for Mother’s Day...
Abagail is an adorable stamp from Eat Cake Graphics. When I saw her I knew I wanted to use her for a Mother’s Day card. What little kid doesn’t remember baking or cooking something for their moms? And this cute stamp can be used for many occasions...
