Fun Summer Challenge With Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

 
Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and the theme this week is Summer!
Have you joined the Kraftin Kimmie's Krafty Friends Facebook group? It's the best place to keep up with all of the goings on as well as sharing YOUR creations and getting inspired by other Krafty Friends' creations!!!
In addition to the great Krafty Challenges & Wonderful Wednesday, each month we will post a Sketch. The sketch will last all month long and if you use it in ANY of our Challenges or WW's during that month you will get an additional chance to win a store gift card! You do NOT have to use the sketch, it's just a little extra boost for your mojo if you need it!
Now create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp and be sure to use our THEME as a starting point for your creation!

Today's theme for our KKS challenge is Summer.  The Tweetie Birds stamp is perfect for this challenge.  I decided to create a little scene using the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop die and the Picket Fence die.  I made the flowers using a MS flower punch and the branch/leaves are an Impression Obsession die.  Then I just added some small pearls for their centers.  The image was coloured with Copics and then cut out and popped into the scene.  The designer paper is from the Doodlebug - Cream & Sugar paper pad.  I sponged on the sky/clouds using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  Finally the sentiment was added using a Fishtail Die from YNS.  Have a great week!

It's time for a Krafty Komeback! As you know, lots of our rubber stamp sets have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore. Well, Kimmie has decided to switch some things up and rerelease a few of your faves in clear, and today we're announcing a new one!
This WONDER-ful stamp set features one of our most popular images from artist Annie Rodrigue!
It's ALICE IN WONDERLAND!

I love this stamp and I was so happy when Kimmie decided to bring this stamp out of retirement.  It was originally a rubber stamp but now you can get it in clear.  So, I coloured her up with Copics and then cut her out and layered her using the round Spellbinder die and the Triple Tear Die from Spellbinders.  The paper is from the DCWV - Birthday Wishes paper pad.  The fishtail is a die from YNS.  Then just a little ribbon to finish it off.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Hi, welcome to day two featuring the amazingly gorgeous stamp CINDERELLA!!  This was so much fun to colour up!!  I used two dies to create the clock shaker.  The clock itself is a die from La-La-Land and the other die which is behind the clock is from Spellbinders and its called Triple Tear.  The blue background cardstock was embossed using the Heart Embossing Folder.  I also used a MS lace border punch on the side of the card.  The image was coloured with Copics and then fussy cut and popped up in front of the clock.  I added some blue and white pearls to the clock for added dimensions.  The shaker is filled with gold and yellow sequins.  Enjoy the rest of the hop because there are lots of beautiful projects for you to see!!
