Krafty Day Special Edition Stamp

Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Moonlight Whispers line by Annie Rodrigue is my absolute favourite line of stamps.  I use them most often because they are just so darn cute.  I was super excited to find out that as part of Krafty Day, we were getting a goody bag with a special edition Annie Rodrigue stamp!  The image is so stinking cute and will be great for creating items for fellow crafty friends. 

Over the course of the day, there was a challenge to create something that used the special edition image.  The problem for me was that I didn’t really bring any supplies with me to create something with.  I brought some copics, my adhesive, trimmer, bone folder, some pre-stamped images, scissors, and 2-way glue.  Luckily, there was some cardstock in our goodie bag, along with some embellishments.  The cardstock was only 6x6, and considering the image was larger than 3x3, I had to use some ingenuity to come up with something.  I cut a piece of the cardstock to 4 1/4x 5 3/4, and another piece to 4 1/4x5 1/2.  I folded over the extra 1/4 inch on the first piece and adhered it to the second piece which made me a standard A2 card.  I bought a 6x6 Cosmo Cricket “Pixie-licious” stack and used a piece from it as my background layer.  Before I go into more details, I better show you the card:

I used a MS punch I bought from Scrappin’ Great Deals which had a table at Krafty Day.  I’ve wanted it for a while and scooped it up when I saw it.  The buttons and hemp came from a bag of embellishments we were given, and I used Copics for colouring.  I really like how it turned out.  I didn’t win the contest, BUT I think I did a pretty good job considering I only used items I got yesterday. 



  1. Hi Steph! You did a fantastic job using items from Krafty Day! This stamp is so cute...I love the way you coloured the stacks of papers, and the texture in her hair is great! Fabulous "engineering" on the card base too!

  2. How sweeet!! Love your card and I would have voted for it to be the winner--if only for your ingenuity in putting it together. Envious you were able to go to the stamp camp and score the bonus stamp! Nice nice nice! xxooTammy
