For my release day hop card I used the other image from the stamp set Blast Off.  This is another one of the backgrounds I created ages ago using Distress Inks.  It is also splattered with white paint to create stars.
I coloured the images with Copics.  I decided to add a moon for Lucas and his dog to land on and name after KKS......lol.
I hope you have enjoyed the July release as much as I have!  Thanks for stopping by!

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!
