Candy Bars and Birthday Wishes

Hey everyone, it's my week to post a Krafty Tip & Tute over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog. I don't normally do anything that requires a tip or a tute, but these Candy Bar Slide Holders are so easy, and fun, you can't help but want to make them. :)



 I chose to use the Make A Wish set. I cut some balloons out using a Balloon Die-namic from MFT, and some Simple Stories paper. I added some hemp cord as the strings for the balloons, and then gathered them together with a Lemon Drop button. To finish I added some brads to my sentiment, and then layered it with Lemon Drop, Wild Cherry, and Nightshift Blue cardstock. 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Hope you enjoyed it! Have a Krafty Day!

I also want to wish a VERY happy birthday to the sweetest, most amazing man to ever enter my life. The man that gives me strength when I have none, and believes in me even when I don't. Mark, I hope you have the best birthday, to the moon and back babe. :)

A Crazy Masculine Saturday Challenge

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

It's Deborah here today with a new challenge for you! My little nephew becomes 6 years old this week, so I've chosen to have a boy's theme this week. The new challenge is:

All About the Boys!!!  


For my card today, I used the new Words of Inspiration set, which basically eliminated my struggle with trying to figure out which one of the super cute or gorgeous Kimmie Stamps I was going to have to make manly....which I think we all struggle with, right?  I used an old MFT Dienamics to create my layered sentiment. My paper is from one of the MME Notable pads, and I paired it with Orange Fizz, Berrylicious, and Kraft cardstock from MFT. To embellish my card, I added Orange Fizz, Berrylicious, and Sweet Tooth buttons. My finishing touches were more hemp cord, and some brads.

My card is also for this weeks CRAZY 4 CHALLENGES challenge, to use opposites.
