Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps July Skrappy Challenge!

 

 Good morning krafty friends! 

It's JULY, 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!

Just make sure to include some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps products and make sure it's a new creation!  

I stamped images from Gear Up to colour with the 4 Copic grey colour families and die cut with a Pinkfresh tag die to create a set of swatches featuring grey.


I labelled each image with the marker colours I used for the image.



I also included a swatch showing how to add shading/shadows with just one grey marker and one colour of marker.



I'll keep this swatch tag with my Copic makers for future reference! As the Gear Up set was used for a Kolour Along it'S on SALE at 40% off right NOW.

 Good morning and welcome to our FINAL day of
June Krafty Peeks!

This one is from artist Neda Sadreddin and is called
GOOD TIMES & TAN LINES!


It's the perfect summer stamp set with these adorable kiddos!
Who wants to hang out at the beach or the pool??
Let's go splish splashing!

 


This little boy is enjoying a day at the beach building a sandcastle! I dug out some Hero Arts embossing powder I've had for years which is perfect for creating a sandy scene! The images are all coloured with Copic markers and white details are added with a white gel pen.


I pulled out a pre-inked background from my stash and layered Kraftin' Kimmie Luscious Lemon Hybrid Ink through the Stylish Stars stencil over top. The sentiment is stamped directly on the background with Wicked Black ink and a sentiment from the set. 

As you head out on today's hop you'll get to enjoy so many fabulous designs from our Krafty Team and Krafty Guests!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Krafty Peeks Day THREE! SUM-SUM-SUMMERTIME!

 Good morning and welcome to Day THREE
of our June Krafty Peeks!

It's called SUM-SUM-SUMMERTIME!


Today we are sharing a KRAFTY KOMEBACK stamp set!


For those who are new around these parts, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps will be celebrating 15 years this fall so we have a lot of retired images most people have never seen before!  (And there are lots of requests for past stamp sets!) So once in a while we bring a set back and this one will be back this weekend!

AND check out this scrumptious new coordinating stencil!

It's called I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM!!!



It's a set of TWO layering stencils to create this colourful summertime background!  Yummy!


So many great images to colour in this set and I created a die cut beachy scene with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders and Honey Bee Makin' Waves Long Border die. The sunny sky is patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes Rainbow 6x6 paper pad.

Dies, coloured cardstock and patterned paper are a great way to create a scene for your stamped images!

Happy hoppin' as you check out what the team has created and see YOU tomorrow for more awesome goodies!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Krafty Peeks Day TWO! I BEE-lieve in YOU!

 Welcome back!

Did you enjoy yesterday's Peeks?
Well, we are back with MORE fun stuff!

Today we are spotlighting a new stamp set from artist Sabrina van Vloten called I BEE-lieve in YOU!


Look at those adorable fluffy bee bums!!




I used Kraftin' Kimmie Hybrid inks in Amazing Azure, Mermaid Melody and Purple Petunia with the NEW layering stencil. I chose these colours as they coordinated with the Copic colours I used to colour the bees. I added Crystal Stickles to the wings on the stenciled area and the Copic coloured wings.

As you head out on today's Krafty Hop you'll get to enjoy lots of gorgeous creations from our Krafty Team featuring I BEE-lieve in YOU! and our incredibly adorable new BUMBLEBEE set of layering stencils in combination with some of our other incredible products such as our Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks!

 Who's ready for some brand new Krafty Goodies?

It's time to bring you NEW stamp sets and layering stencils
from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

In case you haven't heard, we are moving the release to every other month but the same number of wonderful products!


So we will be sharing FOUR new stamp sets (including a summer Krafty Komeback) and TWO new sets of layering stencils over the course of this week!


Today we are excited to kick things off with a stunning and elegant stamp set from artist Michelle Houghton called 
FLORAL FUN!! 
 


It's always a kick when my project is featured in the release marketing!



I Copic coloured all the florals from Floral Fun and cut them using my Brother ScanNCut. 
I'm still learning the machine but it is super helpful for this girl who does not enjoy fussy cutting! I layered the images over this die cut from the Altenew Create-a-Wreathe die set.
Here's a close-up look at all the white gel pen and black fineliner details as well as a few Nuvo Clear Drops on the daffodil.


As you head out on today's Krafty Hop you'll get to enjoy lots of gorgeous creations from our Krafty Team featuring FLORAL FUN in combination with some of our other incredible products such as our Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks!
