Happy Birthday, Picklehead!

Tomorrow is my cousin's birthday.  His name is Brian Junior.  I grew up calling him BJ.  He hit high school and realized BJ would get him teased.  He refused to answer to anything but Brian.  I suck at calling him Brian.  Growing up, our beloved Uncle Greg dubbed him Picklehead.  Thus, I call him Picklehead.'s not BJ.

Anyway, he's turning 29 tomorrow.  He's a veteran of two Iraqi tours which resulted in him being rewarded with a purple heart and an honorable discharge.  Now, he works at the VA Hospital in Oregon.  All in all, he's a pretty super kid.

I wanted to make him something I though he would like, so, per my Mom's suggestion, I busted out my Kraftin' Kimmie Betty. 

Here is his card:

I made the background paper by repeatedly stamping 'Happy' and "birthday', then separating with some shiny red ribbon.

I colored using Copics and accented with my Stickles.  I {puffy heart} Stickles.

A Get Well Kimmie

I had another Kimmie I had yet to try, so I figured I would keep the Kimmie going!  I had the distinct pleasure of using Kraftin' Kimmie's Betty to make a get well card for a special friend.


The card base is Papertrey Ink's True Black.  The background papers are from DCWV's Dots, Stripes, and Plaids paper stack.

I colored Betty using:
Hair: E11, E13, E17, E19, and R35
Skin: E11, E00, and E0000
Eyes, BG15, BG18, C9, C7, and C5
Shirt: BG78, BG75, and BG72
Shorts: B69, B66, and B63
Lips: R35 and R27
Flowers: Y18, Y15, and E59

I blinged her up a bit with BBP white blings....

 ...and blue blings.

Lastly, I made her super fantastic with my beloved stickles.  I would let you know which ones they were, but by 140 lb dog is lying in front of that drawer and I don't feel like dragging him out of the way.  =o )

Thanks for looking!

Kraftin' Kimmies goes Monochromatic!

This week's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge was to go monochromatic.  I had so much fun with the Some Odd Girl Monochromatic that I *had* to participate!  I believe this is my first official Kimmie Challenge card.  I had an absolute blast coloring Danny to make the card below for my Papa.

The card base is Papertrey Ink's True Black.  The background layer is ... I must've thrown away the, I'm not sure who it is!  Sorry.  It's a fanastic black and white plaid though!

 Both the Danny and the sentiment are from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I colored the image using C9, C7, C5, C3, C2, C1, and 0.

I highlighted areas of the image using a white gel pen.

The strips along the top, bottom, and around the sentiment are from DCWVs Alphabet Stack.

To finish it off, I added black and white eyelets at the corners of the image.

No Stickles!

Thanks for looking!
