Kraftin Kimmie Challenge time - Shape it up!

Hey everyone!! Kraftin' Kimmie's challenge blog is back from our Holiday break and it's time for a new challenge! This week, I'm hosting the challenge, and it's to use at least three different shapes on your card (the actual shape of the card can count as one of them).  I used square, rectangle, circle, and heart.


Aren't they the cutest, sweetest couple you've ever seen??? LOL! I LOVE these bears!!! They're from the fabulous Lots of Love 2 Set! I am in love with all three images in this set! And the set comes with a total of five fun sentiments too!  They're stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and colored with Copic markers. They're then cut out using circle and petite circle Nestabilities.


DP is Love Struck by We R Memory Keepers matter with Bazzill Red and White Bazzill cardstock. There's lots of machine stitching and faux stitching as well.  The bow is made using May Arts silk ribbon along with the Bow Easy, and the heart was cut using the Cricut Expression and Doodlecharms cartridge.  I also used a Martha Stewart border punch for the heart border.


The inside is decorated to coordinate with the card front. Please be sure and hop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge blog to see what the rest of my talented teamies created for your viewing pleasure! Then if you join us in the challenge with a Kraftin' Kimmie image, you will have a chance to win the adorable bear stamp I used for my card today!! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
