Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps- Weekly Saturday Challenge- Clouds

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
This weeks challenge theme is, clouds. My son who's in Kindergarten got invited to his 1st every Birthday Party. It's for a little girl in his class whom will be turning six. I decided to use this theme and make her a cute little Birthday card to go with her gifts. 
I mean what girl wouldn't like a card filled with clouds and a unicorn holding a balloon. 
I colored using Copic Markers.
Pattern Papers- American Craft
Enamel Dots
Twine
Stickles
Spectrum Noir- Clear Sparkle Pen
Letter stickers

I used the,Unicorns & Rainbows stamp set for my image and then I used the, All Aboard stamp set for the sentiment.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' March Release Bloghop

Woohoo!!! It's finally here!!!

Before we recap on this months new stamp sets, I have one more creation to share with you all.
I created this adorable little scene using the new, Darling Dragons & Forest Background Stamp Sets.
In order to merge these two images, I stamped my dragon onto some white cardstock using my Misti Stamping tool. I then stamped him a second time onto some masking paper. I fussy cut out the dragon on masking paper and layered on top of my image on cardstock. I then positioned my Forest Background where I wanted it and using the same Misti, stamped that too.
You never would know that these two stamps sets are separate using this technique.
I colored my entire image using Copic Markers.
I added some glossy accents to my pond to make it glisten.
Finished card off by using some fun pattern paper to mimic the scene and added some backers twine and enamel dots.

Now onto all the new stamps we showcased this week....
First up we super sweet new spring set by artist
Emilie Goulet! We have TWEETIE PIES!

Now on to our February Farm Fresh Challenge. This month our challenge is:

Mixed Media!

I'm not gonna lie this challenge scared the crap out of me, I've never done mixed media before. This actually turned out to be a really fun challenge and made me think outside my comfort zone.
Here is what I ended up creating...Please be gentle on me...
I used the adorable, Little Fairies-Clear stamp set.
I colored using my Copic Markers.

Before I embellished, this was just a blank 6x6 brown board with two hanging holes in it. I laid down some pretty pattern paper. Here are some of the other items I used..
Embossing paste
Embossing Enamel
Misc. Moss & Mushrooms
Metal Findings by Tim Holtz (keys & key hole)
Paper Flowers
Butterfly Embellishment's
Adhesive pearls
Stickles
Sequins
Glitter

I hope you all enjoy and I hope my creation inspires you all to get out of your comfort zone and create new things.
 Now be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to read the rules and link up your card.

Hugs!
