I created a set of cards for ideas you can use for Valentine's Day with the So Punny stamp set!


"We're a great pear" was your So Punny Krafty Peek and here are the rest of the cards using the So Punny set!

The olives are fussy cut and layered over P13 Hello Spring patterned paper and a Lunar Paste card front created with the Geo 1 stencil.


All the backgrounds were created with the Geo 1 stencil, the pink and red with Creative Expressions Golden Flamingo Opal Polish and Fire Red Kiss Glitter Kiss, so interesting that the area the colours blend turns golden.



 The green/yellow is a combination of Lunar Paste in Lator Gator and Sike!.

by artist

Michelle Houghton called...

SO PUNNY!


This set is filled with adorable images and sweet puns - perfect to send to a friend anytime! And think about how cute they would be for Valentines Day!! 💓You can even add little faces for even more fun!


I definitely had Valentine's Day in mind for this card, creating a background with the Geo 1 stencil and Creative Expressions Golden Flamingo Opal Polish and Fire Red Kiss Glitter Kiss. I then die cut with the Waffle Flower Nesting Hearts Die and adhered the Copic Pears with foam adhesive on top.

The heart is then layered over paper from the P13 Hello Spring collection. 

This is such a fun set!

Kraftin' Kimmie January Skrappy Challenge!

 

Good morning krafty friends!

Happy New Year!

It's January, and that means it's time for a brand new
SKRAPPY CHALLENGE

with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


 The theme of course is ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

For this challenge you can make anything that strikes your fancy....except a card!
So design a new scrapbook page, bookmark, tag, altered item, planner page, art journal, ATC cards...whatever you like!

This month I created a set of Artist Trading Cards for the challenge!


I stamped, Copic coloured and fussy cut this image from Good In the Woods. I inked the background first with the Breezy Backgrounds stencil and Yummy Yellow Hybrid Ink, then while leaving the Breezy Background stencil in place, I layered the Tire Tracks Stencil at an angle and inked with Amazing Azure ink which of course creates this lovely green shade.


I hand doodled a border around the edges of each card.


Embellished with some gems from stash and Tim Holtz Small Talk phrase stickers.


Enjoy hopping around to see what the DT has created and play along with us as well!

Just make sure to include some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps products and make sure it's a new creation!  As soon as we have at least five people playing along, we'll be giving away a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop as the monthly prize!  

You have until Monday, February 3rd to enter, and you can submit as many new creations as you like for more chances to WIN!  Also be sure to share your designs on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Krafty Friends facebook page because we love to see your stuff!

Check out all the details from the Krafty Team below and be inspired to get skrappy!!
