KLSNS #33...Shaped Cards



Hello and Happy Saturday Stampers!

Today's KL Stampin N' Scrapping Challenge kicks off with another great challenge...Shaped Cards! I already know what you are thinking and the possibilities are endless aren't they? *lol*


I ran across a few circular easel cards and decided to make an oval easel card. I wasn't exactly sure how to bring my idea to life but after throwing away a few prototypes, I finally came up with something that I could live with. I just wished that I wrote down the measurements. *sigh*



My adorable image, KiKi with Puppy is one of the many C.C. Designs Stamps that Kelly sells at her on-line store. KiKi is colored in with Copic Markers, cut out and mounted on an Nesties oval die. Because I didn't have any Nestie oval dies that would nestle inside the label 10 die, I had to use my Cricut Expressions to make a custom size oval mat. The lace is machine stitched to the Cricut Expressions oval mats.

For more KLSNS DT inspiration and the official rules, please click here. We also want to thank our growing number of challenge participants. Without you all, these challenges would not be possible! So keep up the great work and I hope to see you all again this week!
