Kraftin Kimmie Magical Krafty Krop

Nothing like a big Kraftin Kimmie challenge to get me back into kreating.  Apparently between going back to work, moving, summer being beautiful and just over all perhaps being a little lazy, there has been small amounts of crafting done and no blogging what so ever.  Time to get my butt into gear, right?!

A huge thanks to Kim and all her Krafty Girls for hosting multiple challenges from their live krop.  If only I lived in Ontario!

So to kick things off..... Here are my entries for 5 of the 6 Magial Krafty Krop Challenges.  I just couldn't get something going that I was happy with for the first challenge which was BINGO!!! I usually really like bingo challenges, but sadly I ran out of time with this one :(

Next up was Challenge #2!! Falling into Fall!!
I used the sweetly sleeping Little Boy Blue for my fall card.  He's coloured with the ShinHan TwinTouch markers from Close To My Heart.  It was my first time using them.  I coloured something else using both the ShinHan and Copic markers.  I must say they blend very nicely together. The nib end takes some getting used to, but over all I like them.  Everything except Little Boy Blue is from Close To My Heart.

Had to include a few leaves inside, just to keep the fall theme going ;)

Then there was Challenge #3!!! CHRISTMAS!

I used a silver shimmer mist for these lovely feathers.  I think it's safe to say, almost everything, myself included, had a silver mist for days!

I cut snowflakes using both the Artiste and Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridges and put the "leftover" one inside.

Followed by Challenge #4!! Pretty in PINK!! Because what is a Kraftin Kimmie event without a pink challenge ;)  I think Sophia is my favourite! I tried for a bit of a washed out look on this one... the purple version I did looks better I think, but only because I have a very grey toned purple vs a grey toned pink.... is there even such a thing?  One day I'll use that one and you'll see what I mean.  Maybe ;)

Next was Challenge #5!! HALLOWEEN!!  You would think given the time of year, this would be easy right.... WRONG!! I learned, much to my surprise, I have absolutely nothing Halloween themed in my stash! I searched forever for anything orange and found the only piece of orange paper I had.  If it wasn't for my new ShinHan TwinTouch markers from Close To My Heart, I wouldn't have even had anything orange to colour Tabitha with.  Clearly, this needs to be rectified!

Despite all the challenges coming up with the materials and a plan for this one, it's one of my favourite from this group.

How could I not silver shimmer/glimmer mist these adorable little bats!  Round 2 of a fewer number of things being covered in silver! I'm such a messy crafter!

And the inside.  It's nice to have somewhere to write on all that black cardstock!

And finally, Challenge #6!! Clean and Simple!
One sheet out of a chalkboard stack, one embossed stamp and one embossed saying, popped up the reverse side from a piece trimmed off the base.

I will be entering each of these cards in their respective Kraftin Kimmie Magical Kraft Krop Challenge.

That's all for today.  Thanks for stopping by.
