Kraftin' Kimmie - Challenge #60 - Time To Unwind

Greetings!!!  Today, after all was said and done, I got to sit down and just create.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the teams that I work for, the amazing women that I am forever inspired by, and the delicious eye candy that I get to see every day.

But sometimes, I like to bust out of my "regularly scheduled crafting" and join a new challenge.  My latest new love is Kraftin' Kimmie stamps.  I was introduced to KK whilst blog hopping one day and voila...I'm the proud owner of at LEAST a dozen if not more KK stamps.  I couldn't help myself!!  And if you're new to KK you'll see what I mean!!!  Just so cute, sassy, snarky and adorable!!

This week's challenge is "Time To Unwind".  The use of fibers, ribbon, twine, stitching, etc is prohibited!  LOL!  And I have to say, it WAS a challenge for me!!  I always use either stitiching, ribbon or SOME kind of fibers on  my card!  EEKS!  I sat for a WHILE trying to embellish appropriately!

But when I sat back and said "done" I was happy.

I used the beautiful and very seasonal Antoinette in my creation today. 

My card base measures at 5x5" square.  I've used G45 Fashionista and brandie new SU! Blueberry Crisp designer papers. 

I colored Antoinette with my Copic and Prismacolor markers.  I stamped her snowflake in Brilliance White Craft Ink and then immediately coated them with MS white glitter.  I also glittered up the blades of her skates although it's almost impossible to see in the photos.

I layered my papers and matted my snowflakes.  Just behind where I wanted to add Antoinette, I added a piece of the Blueberry Crisp paper punched with my new spiral punch from SU!.  I've always wanted it and FINALLY decided to grab it up with some holiday cash I had. 

I added my main panel to the card and then worked my embellishments to fit snuggly in around Antoinette.  I popped the matted snowflakes up on 3-D foam adhesive.  I pleated a scrap of the G45 paper, held it in place with double sided tape and then added a white, heart shaped paper clip over it. 

On my darling husbands urging, I used my Quickie Glue Pen to add a bit of sparkle to the white space around her.  I LOVE how it turned out! 

I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired!!
Happy Crafting!!

Crafty Hugs!
Meredith
