We all used the following sketch by Elisa Kammerdiener for inspiration:

And here is my Princess Birthday Card:

As you can see, I have altered the sketch a bit. I used the Princess Anya Stamp from The Greeting Farm and colored her with my Copics. I seriously LOVE this image! I used Spellbinders Labels 8 to cut out my image, mat and the sentiment. The papers are all from Echo Park Paper's Little Girl line, one of my all time favorites! The beautiful Rhinestone Trim Bling and Mini Shabby Chic Flowers came from the Kinderstampo store. The flowers started out white and I colored them to match my princess with my Copics.

Theme-spiration with Kinderstampo!

Hello and welcome to the latest "Theme-spired Saturday" for KinderStampo! Every Saturday there is a new theme to serve as inspiration for our paper crafting. This week's theme is....

Now, those who know me well know I'm not a coffee drinker so I didn't have an abundance of coffee related items in my stash. However, I did find this adorable stamp in a goodie bag from Unity Stamp Company! So I created my card...

To get the lace effect under my matted colored image I simply tore the edge from 2 doilies and folded and pleated them until I achieved the look I was after. I also added 2 beautiful crystal-look flowers from the Kinderstampo store to give my card a finishing touch. I colored the clear rhinestone in the center of each with a teal Copic marker to make it pop a bit more.

I chose the wintery, snowy teal papers to make the hot coffee seem that much warmer, and like a delicious treat on a cold winter day. Hope you've enjoyed this Theme-spiration, check out the Kinderstampo Blog for more inspiration!
