Hi!  Welcome to another day of sneak peeks and we've got these adorable Manatee's to share with you!!  I used Copics to colour my images and then fussy cut them out.  I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Wave Borders and Stitched Hillside dies to create the background.  The colours of Distress Inks used for the ocean are Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Antique Linen.  I also used a few of the colours to splatter the background.  Then I just added the images and the sentiment.  Such a cute set of stamps!!  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Hi there!  Don't you just love these adorable stamps!!  Perfect for both girl and boy cards or scrapbook pages!!  I created this background ages ago and was finally able to use it.  It was created with Distress Inks, which I can no longer remember which colours I used!  Once it dried I added some white splatter to give the illusion of stars.
The images were coloured with Copics.  Then I cut out the space ship and added Acetate so that you could see "space" behind the girl.  I'm really happy with how it turned out!
Enjoy the hop!

Re-Release Of The Stamp "Happy Campers"!

So it seems that you've been rather enjoying our recent rereleases of World of Wonder and Totally Tubular since they are both almost sold out! SO we decided it's time for another Rubber Rerelease!
As you know, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps has been going strong for 8.5 years and we have produced hundreds of amazing stamp sets but we can't keep them all in stock forever! So sometimes we have to retire them but once in a while, it's super fun to bring back an older stamp set in red rubber!
We are SO excited to be bringing back the adorable HAPPY CAMPERS stamp set by artist Cheryl Grant!  What says SUMMER more than camping?! This super sweet stamp set is fabulously fun to use in create cards, scrapbook pages, tags, altered items and more!


HAPPY CAMPERS includes three adorable main images featuring those kiddos Lulu, Lucas and Lexi plus FIVE perfectly coordinating sentiments!  This set comes in high quality unmounted PRETRIMMED natural red rubber for beautiful crisp images!
We've got MORE amazingness in store for you because our FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS are also up in the shop! A small selection of stamp sets are up to 40% OFF but only for the weekend and only while supplies last!


I was super excited to see that this stamp was being brought back!!  So perfect for summer birthdays and general all around cards!  I decided to colour the images using Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils.  I love the look of pencils on kraft cardstock.  I kept the card simple because I wanted the images to be the main focal point! 
Have a great week!

Finish The Inside Of Your Card Challenge!

Welcome to another fun Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge! This week we want you to
FINISH THE INSIDE OF YOUR CARD!
Submit your krafty design for your chance to WIN! You have until Friday, June 29th to enter this challenge! Keep in mind, all entries are welcome but you must use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp in order to win.
Each Saturday we post a new challenge and you can enter as many times as you like!  Each submission during the month will enter you into the monthly prize which will be a $40 gift voucher to spend in the krafty shop!


Be sure to hop on over to the Krafty Shop this weekend because we have the FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS up with FOUR of our amazing stamp sets on 40% OFF! Plus our Inspirational Wednesday featured set, BEACH BLANKET BINGO, is on SALE as well!
We've also rereleased a super sweet RETIRED stamp set, WORLD OF WONDER by artist Emilie Goulet! So if you missed it when it was released in 2013, you can snap it up now!
  


This week's challenge is all about finishing up all those beautiful cards we make!!  We tend to concentrate on the outside and forget to add some beauty to the inside!
My card today features the stamp set Beautiful Blooms and the newly released hybrid inks from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  The hybrid inks I used were Yummy Yellow, Marvellous Mocha and Lovely Lagoon.  I added the dots in the background using a SSS medium dot stencil and the Yummy Yellow hybrid ink.  There was absolutely no colouring involved....love it!!
So for the inside of the card I used an MS lace border bunch and a couple of the flowers again stamped with the yummy yellow inks.  I cut them out and attached them to the corner.


You'll notice the flower in the background is a little darker yellow, that's because I left some of the Lovely Lagoon ink on the stamp and then re-applied the yummy yellow ink.  This gave me the darker colour.  I call this my happy accident....lol.
I hope you'll join us this week for our challenge!  Have a great week!
