Kimono Kids



I've decided that there are so many ways to use the Kimono Kids set (IB&C p 42) and for many different occasions. I love this as it means I get really good value out of a set, which no matter whether you're starting out or you've been a stamper for years is fantastic.

I made the invitations earlier this year for my Mum's birthday, the good friend flower card as a pick me up for one of my friends in Canberra that was having a down day and the purple fan girl for a birthday. 

The fact that I can colour the dresses any colour I decide means that I can essentially match them up with any of papers I have or any cardstock, including those little pieces that I find tend to lie around a little long.

I pulled out my Stampin' Pastels (chalks) and the blender pen for the fan girl card as I don't use it much but it does make adding colour really simple.  The other two cards I chose to use the markers and they are super quick and add a little more vibrant colour.
