I then die cut the leaves with the Lawn Fawn Slimline Tropical Leaves Border die. The frame is die cut first with the Pink Fresh Studios Blanket stitched rectangle die and then the Lawn Fawn Reverse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Window die.

The clouds are stencilled with the Krafty Scenery 4 stencil and Designer DenimMostly Melon and Aqua Adventure ink.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps January Krafty Peeks...Day THREE! So Punny 2!

 Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the January Release 

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


We are so excited to share a fabulous new set 

by artist Michelle Houghton

 called...

So Punny 2!



These cute foodie images are going to be awesome to use on your cards and scrapbook pages! But then add the adorably cute eyes and a punny sentiment for even more fun! If you love this set, be sure to check out the original So Punny in the shop for even more fun!


The sentiments in this set are so fun and I Copic coloured pb&j, fussy cut and layered over a Simon Says Stamp die from my stash!

I inked some white pigment ink behind the stacked die cuts as well.


Next up is a card combining the new Falling Hearts stencil and So Punny 2!


I hand drew some "sesame seeds" for the bun and Copic coloured the images. After fussy cutting I hayered them over a background stencilled with the Falling Hearts stencil and Simon Hurley Lunar Paste.

This is a layering stencil so if using paste, make sure to let the first layer dry completely before stencilling the second layer. 

Check out So Punny 2 in so many amazing creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs!  You'll also see our beautiful new stencils, Falling Hearts along the way! 

Everything will be released after our LIVE Online Release Party TODAY!  All the fun takes place in the Krafty Friends facebook group beginning at 2 pm ET!  See you there!

Altenew January 2024 Inspiration Challenge!

 


So excited to play along with the newest Altenew Inspiration Challenge

Love this inspiration photo and I dug into my stash unearthed some stamped and heat embossed on vellum images. 


I coloured the back side of the vellum with Altenew Artist Markers in Pure Graphite, Prussian Blue, Caribbean Sky, Olive and Bamboo and fussy cut. 



I then created a background with the images on this card from my stash to incorporate the 3rd colour in the inspiration palette.

The sentiment is die cut with the Sweet Sentiments die set from black card and Sterling glitter card from the Gilded Glitter Cardstock set.
 
Thanks for stopping in and taking a look!
