Get Well Kitty - Through the Craftroom Door, coloured pencil


This week's sponsor for Through the Craftroom Door is Knitty Kitty!


Knitty Kitties started life as quirky hand-knitted cats made by Annabel to sell at craft fairs. As their
popularity grew, Annabel began to design digital images based on her own gang of mischievous pets. The antics of cats Georgez and Berts, along with their long-suffering doggy housemate Holly Poocherson, have inspired digital stamps for you to download, colour, and use for your own projects
at home.

Join the Knitty Kitty Digis group on Facebook for membership freebies and follow knittykittydigis on Instagram for alerts on the next giveaway!

To shop the full range please take a look at the KKD Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Eekers


For my project, I decided to use the Knitty Kitty Cone of Shame because I'm scheduled for a surgery later this week and will be healing kitty myself for a few weeks.

Wrapping - gel plate stamping, stencilling


Wrapping presents can bring great joy, especially when the scissors seem to shape the paper on their own. I used Cosmic Shimmer paste on a gel plate to print this stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

The whole gang is here for a wintery greeting. November's challenge for the Sheepski Designs blog is Christmas! Come join us.

Flocking with a stencil


Flocking has the coolest feel, like velvet. It's possible to flock using a stencil, adhesive sheet, and loose flocking without creating a massive mess. For a fuzzy knit look I used the Sweater Weather stencil from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps with a variety of coloured flocks.

For my "not a card", I made a box to hold some cards! I used three colours of Kimmie ink to stamp a pumpkin from Grateful Pumpkins then embossed it and added re-inker spray to the background with the embossing as a resist. I added the pumpkin to a box I die-cut and embossed with Autumn leaves.


The box will hold the A2 Kimmie cards I made for the September release so I can give them as a gift.

Paint My World - TTCRD, Distress crayon


This week's sponsor for the Through the Craftroom Door challenge is Stamp On It!

Stamp On It had it's humble beginnings in Holland MI 25+ years ago.... started out as a "home" business, soon became a storefront on the north side of Holland, grew to a 2nd storefront in Grand Rapids, before closing the Holland store and enlarging the Grand Rapids one! We began doing small craft shows years ago, slowly adding rubber stamp conventions to our schedule, expanding to almost full-time shows on the road before making the decision in the fall of 2009 to either close or sell the store. Before we were able to close the store, one of our employees voiced her desire to purchase the store! Long story short, we "sealed" the deal by the end of 2009 and became pretty much full-time rubber stamp convention vendors on the road.

Our FB link: https://www.facebook.com/Stamp-On-It-189444731096410/
Our web site link: www.stamponit.net

PRIZE; 3 images

For my card, I used the Art Palette and Painter for a colourful, rainbow and paint inspired card.
