I'm trying to stay ahead of the game and get some more Christmas cards done.  So, here is another fun way to use that oh so cute Mason Jar stamp from Two Paper Divas.  
I stamped the mason jar on a teal snowflake paper and added some lace, a scalloped pink trim (from Two Paper Diva's Jar Accessories Set #3) and pink twine with a glittered jingle bell.  I couldn't resist these little snowballs in the mason jar!  The background is also a snowflake paper that I rounded two of the edges.  To complete this card I added a "Snowy Greeting" from stamp set Warm Winter Wishes and some pink pearls.  Too fun!

Hope you are having a great week...thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards!

Make it a great day!

Frosty Fun

Halloween cards...DONE (mailed yesterday)!!!  Christmas cards...one down and many to go!  On that note, I wanted to share with you a fun, ice skating card I created.  I think this stamp set, "Warm Winter Wishes" by Two Paper Divas is so adorable!  I love everything about it!  You can click HERE to check out all of their amazing stamps.  
I first stamped the ice skates and cut them out.  For the blade portion, I colored them with copic markers and added some glossy accents to make them shiny.  I used Wink of Stella on the skates to add a glittery effect.  Aren't they cute with the little pink pom poms?  I used some fun patterned papers with snowflakes and Christmas words, a little white trim with some silver to jazz it up a bit, a couple glittered snowflakes, a pink seam binding bow with some pink twine and a few sleigh bells.  The sentiment "Frosty Fun" is also from the same set. Here's a closer view of the skates.
I sure hope you're having a great week.  Make sure you take some time to be a little crafty this week!  Thanks for checking out Kirby's Kards!

Baseball and Crisp Fall Days

Let's Go Royals!  (Clap, Clap, Clap Clap Clap!!!)  Baseball fever has taken the Kansas City area by storm!  It's been twenty-nine long years since the Royals have been to the playoffs.  With only four teams left, we are all hoping that our Boys in Blue can take it all the way to the World Series and bring us our second championship.  
Check out this fall card I made using two different stamp sets from Two Paper Divas.  I started with one of their new stamps called "Autumn Block."  It's just perfect for the entire fall season.  I colored the pumpkin, leaf and acorn with copic markers, as well as, the outer frame.  The other stamp set I used is "Fall is in the Air."  From this set I stamped the acorns in two different colors and then cut them out and popped a couple for some dimension.  The patterned papers are from Simple Stories...I thought the colors were just rich and beautiful.  I added a thick, brown-stitched ribbon to the middle of the card and scrunched part of it.  I added some rust colored dots to the top right side in three different sizes and a seam binding bow too.

I sure hope you are enjoying the crisp weather and taking some time to be creative!  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards today!

Make it a great day!

Fall Traditions

Pumpkin Patches, Hayrides, Corn Mazes...what's your fall tradition?  Autumn is my absolute favorite season!  It's just perfect for a bike ride enjoying all the beautiful fall colors with my hubby or a stroll with our dogs.  We try to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and spend as much time outdoors as we can.  I wanted to share a fun card I made using some of the latest stamps from Two Paper Divas.  You're going to LOVE them!
I started with their new fence stamp, which I stamped, cut out and distressed to give it a rustic feel.  Their bicycle stamp has got to be one of my new favorites.  I colored it with copic markers and cut it out as well.  So cute!  The little pumpkins/hayrides sign is from their Autumn Word Block stamp which is also from their latest release.  I masked off part of the stamp, so just the words Pumpkins & Hayrides would show.  The "Enjoy the Journey" stamp comes from the Simple Phrases set.  I then added a little flower to the saying and there you have it!

Thanks for taking a minute to check out my latest creation!

Make it a great day!
