Krafty Scrappy Challenge - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Hi, everyone welcome back to another Krafty Scrappin' Challenge and as always is Anything Goes!
For this challenge you can create anything as long as it's NOT a card! Calendars, bookmarks, pocket pages, traditional scrap pages, holiday gifties, planner pages... etc!   
Here are a few things to remember...
THIS MONTH'S THEME: ANYTHING GOES!!!

1. Create ANY scrap page, Project Life Layout or pocket page cards, altered item, etc. JUST NOT A CARD!
2. MUST be a NEW creation (created on or after this post date)
3. MUST use Kraftin Kimmie stamps to be entered in to the drawing.

7. Be sure to also share your creations on our Krafty Friends Facebook page so we can all drool and OOHHHH and AHHHHH!
 
 
I decided to make some Christmas gift tags for this months Scrappy challenge.  I used CHRISTMAS CHEER and THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS stamps sets.  I made my own tags and then used a Magnolia Cozy Big Snowflake die to cut out the center.  Then I added a bit of designer paper behind the opening and glued it all down to another slightly larger tag.  After that I glued the snowflake back into the opening.  I used a white gel pen to go around the tag to mimic sewing.  The buttons were made using a Die-Namics button die.  Then I stamped the sentiment and then  added a bit of twine and a gem stone to the middle of the snowflake. Here are a few more pictures of the different colored tags.
 
 

Quick and easy to do and as a bonus you can use up lots of those leftover scraps you have laying around!  So what are you waiting for grab some of your KKS stamps and get scrappy with us for the next month!

Hi, it's time for another WW challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  I've made an underwater shaker card with the Oceans Of Love stamp set.  This is a fun and versatile stamp set.  I've used it so often and in many different ways!  I colored all the little animals and cut them out and glued them into the shaker part of the card.  I used seed beads because they kinda look like a bit of coral!  The shaker box was cut out using a YNS rectangle stitch die.  The waves are also a die from YNS.  I stamped the sentiment then used white embossing powder so that it would pop!

This is one of my favorite KKS stamps so far!!  I love dragons and I am an avid reader...so perfect for me!!  I created a little shaker box for this card and filled it with tiny stars.  The front of the shaker box is a SSS Mod Window die.  I colored the image with Copics then I used the blender pen to create the spots of the dragon.  My first time doing this and I am quite pleased with the effect!  The designer paper is from the Graphic 45 - An Eerie Tale paper pad.  The button and enamel dots are from Doodlebug.  Thanks for stopping and enjoy the rest of the hop!!

Yup, another shaker card....lol!  This one is a little different!  The shaker is on the front of the card, but the scene is on the inside!  These little flamingoes are just too cute! It's put together pretty much the same way, only there is acetate on both front and back so that it is see through!
Here is the inside with a beach scene.


I've also discovered a few tutorials on Pinterest to make flowers with felt.  Super easy to do and I really like the look of them.  This one is a little larger but it can also be done the same way to make them much smaller.

I don't know if you've noticed, but I love making shaker cards!!  This stamp was perfect for one!  After I colored it with Copics I fussy cut the image out and layered her onto the background paper.  Then I added some grass/ferns.  I like to place a piece of acetate on top of the image before I add the sequins/beads.  I find it moves/shakes better.  Once I did that I added more grass and rocks to give a 3D effect.  This shaker card is deeper than what I usually do.  The designer paper is from the Doodlebug - Under The Sea paper pad.  The dies are from YNS.  Thanks for stopping by!

This is the stamp "Floatin' Fiona" that was part of the Surprise Krafty Kit which contained a whole bunch of neat stuff to create with!!  The designer papers are from the Echo Park - Summer Party paper pad (which was included in the kit)!  I found the neat little pink sandals in the jewelry section of Michael's!  The flowers are from Wild Orchids.
