Good Morning everyone...and Happy Monday!

I hope that you all had a great weekend and if you celebrate Father's Day...I hope you encouraged the man/men in your life with love, laughter, and loads of fun!

Now, I know that you are probably wondering what the title of my post means.  Well, my blog will be moving.  I am going to be using WordPress as oppose to blogger and since I am not as tech savvy as I would like to think...I am running into a few "lemons"....but you know Kimba....I'm gonna make some tasty lemonade!...LOL!!  I want my blog to represent me and my personality as well as a new venture that I plan on embarking in....don't worry, you will know soon enough.  So, please be patient with me.  So, for this week, I won't be posting any cards and one the new blog is up and running, I will have a link that will re-direct you from this blog to my new one.

Thanks again for your patience and I hope you will continue you checking in and following my blog.  You won't be disappointed!  Thanks for stopping by!

SCRAPLING - here's another one...

SCRAMBLE june 11 by kimba7669
Hey everybody....
If you tuned into yesterday on my blog you would know that I had mentioned about learning about Scraplings.  Well, here is another Scrapling that I created.  One of my friends is due to have a baby anyday now and I am going to give this one to her when I give her a "Welcome Home" gift - a basket of her favorite goodies.  Sorry for the quick post, but this week my son has his Math Regents Exam and I am helping him study for it.  As always, thanks for stopping by!

SCRAPLINGS - Do you know what they are?

SCRAMBLE june 11 - 2 by kimba7669

Hi there ya'll.....Happy Monday!

Today's card is something that "was" new to me but not anymore.  I am part of a Flickr Group and the members have a game that we play every so often.  There is a hostess and she runs the game and it's called The 90-minute Scramble.  What that means is that you have to create a card in 90 minutes, using at least one HeroArts stamp...and sometimes there's a twist, like the card needs to have buttons, or it needs to have the color red.  So, this past Saturday's Scramble was to create a SCRAPLING....and this is what I learned....and I am sure you are wondering what a Scrapling is - a Scrapling is a card that is created with the left over piece of cardstock when you cut a 5.5 x 4.25 are left with a  1.25 x 4.25 piece and this is what I used to create the card above.  This was a challenge for me because it was hard to hold back on the embellishments, and so I decided to keep the stamped image as the "REAL" embellishment and  focal point.  You should give this a try.  What a great way to use up your leftover CS.  Shout out to Stampin' Sue for being such a great hostess and for this AWESOME idea called Scraplings!

I hope you learned something new today.  Isn't that what it's all about?  Learning something new and using it in a creative way....give it a try...I know that once you start creating Scraplings, you won't be able to stop....

Thanks for stopping by!

You're Special - WATERCOLOR

June2011A -You're Special - WATERCOLOR by kimba7669

Hey there all-

Happy Monday to you.  I hope that you had a great weekend.  This weekend my kids were away til Sunday, so hubby and I had the house to ourselves.  The only bad thing about that was trying to figure what to do and trying to cram EVERYTHING into 3 days...LOL!!!  One of the things I did get to do is play with my Distress Inks and create this card using a watercolor technique.  I stamped Broken China and Wild Honey on my acrylic block and spritzed it with water, and with a brush, just painted the flower.  Here is a link with a video that shows you how to do this technique.  It's being done by HeroArts Artist Shari Carroll.  It's really easy, so please give it a try.  Just another way to add color to your cards and projects.

Thanks for stopping by.  I love it when you do.  Until tomorrow....

HeroArts DIGITAL Printables and Stamping

Hello all-

I hope that you had a great Memorial Day Weekend and that you got some time to spend with family and friends. Did any of you get to do any card making or scrapbooking? Crafting of ay sort? I sure hope so...

For today's card I combined a digital element with a stamp image. Can you guess what the digital element is? NOPE...not the HeroArts Hydrandgea. YEP, it's the OLD LETTER WRITING in the shape of a label. HeroArts has Digital Printables that are AWESOME! Their images are so true and amazing, that all it needs is some ink, or Copic Markers, or Colored Pencils, or...I could go on and on. If you get a chance, check them out. I am so sure you would love them as much as I do. And the really interesting this is that this is the VERY FIRST time that I have ever used any kind of Digital anything. It was so easy. Open the PDF, print it out on cardstock, and color and cut. Sooo much fun to use and I am now a TRUE Digi-Lover!!!

I colored the flower using my PrismaColored Pencils. I inked up the label using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I am really proud of the finished product and it just goes to show that trying new things ain't so bad and more times than not, you'll surprise yourself and love the outcome! Here's to TRYING NEW THINGS...LOL!

Anywho, gotta run. Thanks so much for stopping by and please, leave me some love. I really enjoy hearing from you! Have a great day!

Kimba :)
