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!

Welcome back to our release day hop!  I chose to use the stamp Sassy Sophie for my hop card.  I coloured the image with Copics.  The papers are from Echo Park - Fashionista paper pad.  I kept the card simple because I wanted the focal point to be the image. I added a border with an MS punch and then some pink ribbon.  The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder by Wow.
I hope you  have enjoyed all the beautiful projects this week by the Krafty girls and our guests!  Have a great week!

For today's card I have created a underwater shaker card.  This background was also created using Distress Inks and Photo Paper.  I used vellum and a YNS Wavy die to create the waves and a Rectangle die to frame the card.  The images were coloured with Copics.  The vegetation and rocks are also a die from YNS.  I added Glossy Accents to the hearts on their cute little bellies!  The shaker was filled with gold and yellow sequins.  Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS SNEAK PEEKS - DAY TWO!


Welcome back to Day TWO of our JUNE release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We have TWO new stamp sets from artist Annie Rodrigue and these are the very LAST images from this artist.
As she has chosen not to do stamps anymore and has ended her contract, we can no longer restock/reorder ANY of her stamp sets. Once ANY of the sets in the Annie category in the shop sell out, they are gone for GOOD so be sure to snap them up!
The first one is SASSY SOPHIE!  The second is MELINDA MERMAID!

Wow, I love this stamp!  So many possibilities!!  The background was created using Distress Inks on Photo Paper.  I coloured the image with Copics and then cut her out.  I took a bit of twine and twisted in to make it look like the chain on a ships anchor.  I finished it off with a few glass drops.  She was framed using the YNS Stitched Rectangle die.
Enjoy the rest of your hop and thanks so much for stopping by!
