My Favorite Things–WSC373!!

Hello!!

It’s time for this week’s Wednesday Sketch Challenge over at the MFT Challenge Blog!  I fell in LOVE with this week’s sketch, and was immediately inspired to make a tropical scene!!  Here’s the sketch:

MFT_WSC_373

And here’s how it inspired me!

KKL_WSC373-2-21-18

I used the Beach Scene Builder Die-Namics to create the the palm tree, waterline and sand.  Man, that set of dies really makes creating these scenes effortless!  With a little bit of ink blending, it literally came to life without too much effort!  I used the Inside & Out Stitched Circle Die-Namics to die cut the aperture, and I used the Soak Up the Fun Stamp Set for the sentiment.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Challenge Blog to be linked to the other beautiful designs that my teammates have created for your inspiration using this week’s Wednesday Sketch!  And while you’re there, be sure and link up your own take on the sketch for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique!  We’d love to see what you create!

That’s it for me today, friends!  I’ll be in my craft room today, filming an upcoming video!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I sure hope you’ll come back again soon!

My Favorite Things–Stitched With Love St. Patrick’s Day Style!

Hola!!

We’re playing with the Cross-Stitch Tag Die-Namics, again and this time we’re coming up with applications for St. Patrick’s Day!  Here’s my project!

KKL_FEB2018-Stitched-With-Love

I altered one one of the new St. Patrick’s Day Cross-Stitch Patterns (you can find all of them HERE) to add a rainbow, and I used the Stitched Cloud Edges to alter the top of the tag.  I also did a bit of stamp surgery on one of the sentiments from the Lucky Dog Stamp Set to create the new sentiment.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

KKL_FEB1518-Chibi-Lights-Project


When we got this assignment, I knew I wanted to use the new In Paris Stamp Set, because . . . City of Lights – helllloooooo!!  LOL I had a blast creating a Parallel Circuit to get all of the lights to light up on the Eiffel Tower.  I’ve listed and linked below all of the products that I used to create my project.  Here’s what it looks like all lit up!


KKL_FEB1518-Chibi-Lights-Project-Lit


And a quick little video clip of the card in action.




I’ve actually created a full video describing in detail how I created both the card and the circuit for this project.  You can find it over at the MFT Design Blog.  In addition, you’ll find the links to the other brilliant projects that my amazing teammates have created!  There are giveaways going on over at both the MFT Design Blog as well as the Chibitronics Blog!  You’ll find all of the details at the MFT Design Blog.

My Favorite Things–Wednesday Sketch #372!

Hello friends!

MFT_SketchChallenge_2017Logo

It’s time for another Wednesday Sketch Challenge over at the MFT Challenge Blog!  This week’s sketch is delicious, and really turned my creative crank!  Here’s the sketch:

MFT_WSC_372

And my take on the sketch!!

KKL_WSC372-2-14-18

Isn’t it so cute?!!  I just love those little bears driving cars from the Town Bear Stamp Set.  I masked off and inked up the strip to create a sweet little background, and then stamped and colored one of the bears and used it in place of the small rectangle.  I just love taking a bit of creative license with these sketches!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Challenge Blog to be linked to the other awesome designs from my teammates using this week’s sketch!  While you’re there, be sure and link up your own take on this week’s sketch challenge for a chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher from the MFT Online Boutique!  We’d love to see what you create!

That’s it for me today, friends.  I’m working my little fingers to the bone to make more crafty goodies for you all, so I’ll be back very soon to share!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It’s the best part of my day when you do!  Have a great day!

My Favorite Things–February Release Replay!

Well hello!

Print

I’m back from Vegas with my girlies, and can report that we had an awesome time!  I’m too pooped to peep, but wanted to pop in quickly to share my project for this month’s Release Replay Challenge!

KKL_FEB1218-Release-Replay

So I found this amazing iTunes gift card at Target and knew that I wanted to make it the focal point of a card using the new Gift Card Window & Frame Die-Namics.  I think you all know how hard it is to make a masculine card.  Those men in our lives don’t like a lot of frills and fuss.  So what better way to accomplish a no-frills card than to just make the gift card the star of the show?! Am I right?!  I used the Blueprints 30 to create the card front, the Gift Card Window & Frame to make the opening for the gift card and Gift Card Pouch.  I die cut the card front twice from Smooth White Card Stock, and die cut the Essential Sentiment Rip Strip from the flap to provide ease in removing the gift card without destroying the card.  I used the Interactive Labels Stamp Set to label the rip strip.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other fresh takes that my teammates have created using this month’s new release products!  I know you’ll be amazed!!

That’s it for me today, friends!  I’ll be getting the skunk on my head covered up today and then back to my craft room I’ll go to get more projects completed!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I sure do appreciate it!  I’ll be back very soon with more crafty goodness!!
