Live Laugh Love – TKJ #129!

Hello crafty friends!  I'm sharing a little something I recently created for this week's challenge at The Kraft Journal #129 - 'Pretty Papers'!

Debbie TKJ #129 (2)I began with a base of Brown Kraft Cardstock onto which I layered a piece of White cardstock.  Next, I layered three pieces of 'pretty' patterned papers which I cut into flag shapes on the right sides.  I stamped some pretty images from the Love stamp set, punched them out, layered them on top of colored cardstock pieces and then adhered them on top of the patterned paper flags using dimensionals.

Debbie TKJ #129 (3)

I added some 3-D embellishments to make my stamped images pop:  Black Baker's Twine, a Black Tiny Wooden Clothespin and Black Burlap Ribbon.  Last, I stamped two fancy frame images and a sentiment from the Live Laugh Love stamp set in black.

Debbie TKJ #129 (1)Please be sure to pop on over to check out the beautiful 'Pretty Papers' projects created by the rest of the teamies ... and then we hope you'll have time to play along with this week's challenge for a chance to win some goodness from The Kraft Outlet Shop!

Challenge I was inspired by:  Moxie Fab World - Mixy Matchy Style Challenge

Wish BIG!

Hello sweeties!  I hope you're having a perfectly wonderful and relaxing day and getting some crafty time in too!!  We had a wonderful day yesterday for the 4th of July ... R&R, fun in the sun, splish-splashing in the water, BBQ with yummy corn-on-the-cob and watermelon and fireworks in the evening -- a perfect day!

papersweeties-july5(2)I am sharing a card today that I whipped up for a couple of sweet events going on today in blogland!  I was turned onto the {sweetest} Martha Stewart clay mold by my friend, Lori, last week and had to run to the craft store to get one to play with!  The cupcake was made using air clay ... just SO MUCH fun to play with!  I glittered the frosting to make it even more yummy and added a teeny cherry on the top!

papersweeties-july5(3)I used the You Make Me Smile and So Sweet of You stamp sets from Paper Sweeties {two of my favorites!} for all the stamped sentiments, added a beautiful twill striped bow from The Ribbon Reel and a snipett of lime green polka dot washi tape ... I think this card says 'Have a Happy Birthday' ... how about you?
