It’s Saturday (thank goodness, I think this was the looongest week ever!) and that means the start of another challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. Krafty Girl Brigette is the hostess this week and she chose the theme this week: Critters! I always say the cuter the better when it comes to critters, and there is no shortage of cute critters when it comes to the selection of stamps at Kraftin’ Kimmie!!
I chose to use the newly released Awesome Possums because I just think these little guys are way too cute! And they colour up so fast and that was really nice today I have to admit. Did I mention it was a long week? I literally pulled an all-nighter…and I’m the professor! Yes, it was that kind of week!
So, I wanted to quickly create a card, but have it still be awesome possum…ya I know, but I couldn’t resist!
I cut a quick 6×6 square cardstock base, and used a dark navy smooth cardstock for the bottom layer. I used a Your Next Die and diecut a layered large fishtail out of some Recollections blue foil paper and Rose Gold cardstock from Michaels. I first ran the blue foil through my Big Kick with the Happy Hearts Kraftin’ Kimmie Stencil to emboss it. Next, I used a YND die and cut out the windows. I glued it all onto the card base. I also used a die to cut out the letters. It is a brand new die from Picket Fence Studios. Just arrived in the mail today.
I stamped my little possums up using Kraftin’ Kimmie Kolours hybrid ink in Wicked Black and then coloured them in with my Copic markers. I used R20 on the nose, R000 in the ears, tummy, tail and paws. I used N0, N1, N2 & N3 for their fur. I’m liking that colour combo for these little guys.
I tied some gold and white twine onto the card and then tucked the one hanging little guy onto the twine, using foam dots. I actually cut under his chin to stick it onto the twine. The single head I popped foam dots on and placed him in the box.
I added some other interest by using the cut out squares unde the twine and then popped some sparkly embellishment candy dots on them. Final finishing touch was Stickles in Stardust on the edges.
A little hello for a friend…just what we all need these days!
