Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #230 Girly Girl

It's time for another fabulous challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I have been have a blast this month joining along with the super talented Krafty Girls as a Guest Designer for the month of May.

This week Krafty Girl Sheri is our hostess and her challenge is called GIRLY, GIRl! Sound like fun? There are so many fabulous Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps that are GIRLY. Grab those stamps, maybe a bit of bling, or even something PINK (it's Kimmie's favourite) and let's get GIRLY! You can make any crafty paper project you want, just use at least one Girly Kraftin' Kimmie image.

Don't forget about the fabulous FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS this weekend. There are a lot of stamp sets on sale 25-50% off! There are so many great images and some of them you will see featured in projects for this weeks challenge. Inspiration and sales, what more can you want! Head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp store and happy shopping!

For my card I used the lovely PEONY. The paper on the card is from adornit "Home Tweet Home" 12x12 paper collections. I have been trying to work with all of my paper collections to get through some of my older stashes that I haven't had the chance to scrapbook. This one was perfect for a few cards.

A close up of my image, which is coloured with Copic markers. I have had a few questions about my bows and I am going to share the secret, which was previously shared with me. Check out some of my earlier bows and you will see the improvement. You can create easy bows anywhere with this very simple tool that I know your already own. Do you know what it is? Well it's your fingers and they can help make a wonderful bow. I like this video tutorial. I adapted the technique in the video to get my single bow.

If you want another great video check out Krafty Girl Sharon's video on the Kraftin' Kimmie YouTube page, she's using a tool called Bow Easy. There are also a number of other fabulous videos so go check it out.

Now for the inside of the card. Here I used another Kraftin' Kimmie stamp and combined a Happy Birthday sentiment with the Peony "Bee-utiful" and added a few bees.

Now stop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge blog to check out the wonderful creations by the Krafty Girls and other Krafty Guests featuring this week's challenge. I am sure they will inspire you with their GIRLY creations. Then ink up your Kraftin' Kimmie stamps and play along. You could WIN!

Happy Kraftin'!
