KimberlyRae here today with a set of cards to share with you! I just love these sweet Chicks and the sentiments are egg-dorable, too!
Inky Antics Celebrating Chicks and Birthday Chicks stamp sets by Ronnie Walter are just the cutest things ever and I just couldn’t control myself using them! I could have just kept going and going, making these cards! I found mine at Michael’s crafts, but check out all the Fun Inky Antics Stamps here.
A little tip- I straight cut with my Tim Holtz scissors around each image. I really like this look and I’ve used it in my digital layouts quite a bit, this technique worked great for these whimsical and fun cards!
Using my Zig Real Brush Markers made the water coloring so easy. There are fine details on these stamps and my Zig’s really did a great job getting into those tight spots They are my favorite for so many reasons.
I hope you get this set a go and come back to see another project. All the supplies I used are listed below for your quick review
As always, thank you for stopping by and please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment box below and have a Crafty day.
Happy to be back after a bit. Sorry it’s been so long. I’ve been recuperating from a bad accident! It’s actually taken a couple of years to get where I am today! I feel stronger and more confident to get back into crafting and CARD making! Yes, I have made my First Shaker Card and actually blogged! Yay Me!
This fishy shaker card was so much fun to make with Lawn Fawn‘s New Fintastic Stamp and die set. Just love it so much! Yes, I’m a fishy-type of person…love Fish!
I created a ‘seek and find’ sort of toy for my Grandson’s 3rd birthday, so he can move the card around and find his name bits and some more pretty fish.
Now, I started out using my Zig Real Brush Markers to water color all the fish. Then, I used Distress inks to paint my background.
Using Lawn Fawn‘s stitched Cloud border dies I did some inlay for the background. I also, used Lawn Fawn Letter dies and cut them out of contact paper to make a resist for my water color background, works GREAT!
In addition, I used those same dies and flipped them over to make more dimension on the background…do you see those extra subtle waves?
I’m just getting back into the swing of things, after a long recuperation, so you will see many other cards posted, most everyday here. Please, come back and see them and thank you for your comment and any questions you may have. If there’s enough interest in the techniques I used, I will consider making videos. ox

Thank you for stopping by and I want to know what you think about these picks, brought to you by Fleurette Bloom Designs and SVGcuts!? Do you have ’em? Do you need ’em? Did I forget something? Let me know!
Even though this kit has a Card Kit inside the Collection with Printables it also has SVGs which I printed my owls and limb from. The limb wraps around to the back of the card!
I used the Card Kit in the Collection and blue, pink, brown, wood grain and owl textured papers, from Fleurette Bloom’s Little Critter’s Collection kit [printable digital papers] to make up the Bows, mats and cardbase. Also, with SVG Kit MaisonMadelineand using the Gears from the Extras folder I made the Eyelashes. Then, added a sweet lil bow from Trendy Twine!
In addition, to Fleurette Bloom’s Whimsical and Fun designs remember to check out This Weeks Freebie-Mini File Folders!! Cuteeeeeee!
I Appreciate Your Visit, to see more of my projects with Fleurette Bloom Designs please go Here and Stop by Soon to See what I’m up to Next!
Once Cut out you’ll want to organize pieces 1-9 and start adhering them together starting with #1 and so forth around and close up the top part of the boot.
For the Toe of the boot just adhere together the three pieces, pop-out to form the toe and glue to the top part of the boot. I also cut out the pieces for the Sole of the boot and panels.
The last photo show the bottom of the sole and the side panels, these all get adhere with a tacky glue. All of these ‘denim’ boot pieces got inked up with ‘Faded Blue Jeans’ Tim Holtz distress ink.
Congratulations! You’re ‘Boot Vase’ is Finished and ready for a half-dozen Lily Pencils!
Paper Lily Pencils
First, you will want to open your editing software I used Silhouette Studio Designer Edition [SSDE] software and from your SVGCuts ‘3D Flowers’ Collection SVG kit locate the ‘Daffodil’ flower file. [down below in the Comments Box, I have directions how to do this is SCALand Design Space.
Then, I edited the flower part by using the ‘draw an elipse’ tool, draw a circle right in the center covering some of the ‘leaf’ part.
Next, select the circle and the flower part and click on ‘object’, ‘modify’, ‘subtract’! All the flower pieces should be apart now. My petals measure 3.720″ x 1.310″ but you can skew and shape yours any way you want them. Ahhh…love technology these days ;p
To create the ‘slit’ at the base of each flower petal [you only have to do this to ONE of the petals and discard the other five petals] click on the ‘draw a line’ tool and make a line about 3/4″ from the bottom center of the petal.
Now, group and duplicate the petal for six-petals.
You are now ready to watch the Video below which will show you each step to shape and compete your bouquet!

Yay! Congrats! You’re finished with your flowers For the Boot assembly video go here!
Arrange them in your boot vase and stand back you’ve created a piece of paperArt anyone would love to be gifted or keep for yourself- after all you did a Beautiful job!
Card and Envelope
Now- that you’re Boot Vase and Lily Pencils are all done, you can add a Card and Envelope!
First, Select the ‘Howdy Partner’ Card and Envelope folders and cut all pieces [I edited mine, since I needed a Happy Birthday card] using papers from any printed paper as you wish. Embellish as desired and you’re done!
Not only was I challenged to begin with, with my concussion, But the pattern was written by an UK designer and I’m an American Irish girl! I’ll get back to that here in a few, after I share the finished sweet set!
After months working on this ‘gem’, I’m quite pleased with it!
As you can see, I altered the pattern and created a more cap sleeve rather then the long. I also changed the neck to white and didn’t use so many tiny Knitted strawberry flowers as it called for. And I knitted the ‘Pips’ [strawberry SEEDS], which I like a lot more.
I used Cot-Lin yarn by Knit Picks and love the subdued colorways. They aren’t so shocking and defined red, white and green and just yummy.
The pattern calls for a size 6 and size 0 for the flowers, but I used size 2 Harmony circular needles for the flower petals and centers.
Speaking of Circulars- This pattern is written for Flat work! No, in the round. I wish that was stated right up front, I had no idea until I bought the pattern and got into it!! But that’s how I roll…should have asked questions, instead of diving in and assuming! lol Maybe, that’s due to I’m still a Young knitter! haha
TIP for my American friends- UK knitting Lingo as follows:
yrn= YO or Yarn Over
stocking stitch= Stockinette
So of course, with Flat work, there’s a LOT of time intense seaming to be had, but the results are oh Great!
I loved working with the Cotton/Linen blend yarn and I just love, love the way it turned out!
I’ve started a couple more projects working with Anne Geddes Baby Sport yarn and talk about yummy…stay tuned!

Hi Everyone! KimberlyRae here to share with you how I made my Baby Buggy and Card!
Using Carta Bella’s Baby Mine Girl paper kit, I cut the SVG files with my Silhouette Cameo for both the baby buggy and the baby bottle from patterned papers within this sweet collection. Then, I decorated both with additional embellishments to make them even sweeter, including jewel brads for each of the wheels.
