Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Skrappy Challenge!

   Good morning krafty friends! 

It's December, 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!


I bought a mini journal in the spring and decided to crack it open and create an art journal page with the Squirrel Friends and Safari Fun stamp sets as well as the Animal Adventure Stencil.


I inked the background with Ocean Opulence and Sandy Shore ink.
The patterned paper and ephemera are from the 49 and Market Vintage Artistry Nature Study line.

I hope you're inspired to play along with the challenge!

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

December Saturday Challenge #675 Christmas and/or Winter!

 

  Good morning and welcome to our new 

Monthly Saturday Challenge

Are you ready for another krafty challenge to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing?
We've got some fabulous ideas for you 
and can't wait to see what you create!

This month our Saturday Challenge themes for you are: 

Christmas and/or Winter

You can choose one or both - whatever inspires you!

Krafty Girl Tamara is hosting our challenge! We take a little break over the holidays so we will not be posting a mid-inspiration post this month, but you can still enter all month long!


I love the Build-A-Snowman stencil and decided to experiment colouring the snowmen with Copic markers. I outlined with the stencil then coloured in the shapes. I turned the stencil over to create the snowman facing left and the background is created with the 3 "buttons" in the stencil, Aqua Adventure, Festive Fuchsia and Lucky Limeade inks.



Every month we post a brand new challenge with a choice of themes to choose from, and a mid month inspiration post with even more creative ideas! You are welcome to enter as many times as you like.

These must be new creations and you are welcome to use any stamp, however, using Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp products will earn you double entries!

Our Challenges are now combined with the 
Skrappy Challenge (first Tuesday of the Month)
and the Christmas Challenge In the Krafty Friends FB group! So feel free to enter any or all of these - the monthly prize is a $20 voucher to the Krafty shop!!!
Woohoo!

Altenew November Inspiration Challenge



Welcome here to my entry for the Altenew November Inspiration Challenge


It was so much playing with the Nordic Wonderland Craft Your Life Kit and Fresh Dye Inks!

I stamped the image in Jet Black ink and colored with the coordinating stencil and Tickled Pink, Ride the Wave and Be Grapeful Fresh Dye Inks. I then embossed with the kit embossing folder and added Stickles, a black glaze gel pen and some Studio Katia clear drops.

Thanks for taking a look!
