Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Saturday Challenge!

     Good morning and welcome to our  

Monthly Saturday Challenge Mid Inspiration Post

We are back today with an inspirational post showcasing more ideas to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing!
We can't wait to see what you create!
*****

This month our Saturday Challenge themes for you are:

Stitching and/or Cute Critters!


You can choose one or both - whatever inspires you!


Our Ink Of The Month, which will be on sale all month long is the gorgeous Mellow Mustard Ink Pad, Ink Cube and Reinker! Grab it now to add to your collection..

I've used both themes on this card!


I Copic coloured this cute image from Safari Fun and used the Summer Sunbeams stencil as a guide to pierce stitching holes with my craft pick.

I then handstitched embroidary floss and mounted the panel on a stitched rectangle die cut.


A few Studio Katia black crystals add a little shine to the card front.

 Every month we post a brand new challenge with two 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.


This month's challenge will remain open until the end of the month!

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)

Altenew March Inspiration Challenge!

 



There are so many different ways to use 3d embossing folders so I thought I'd challenge myself to colour the gorgeous Beautiful Bergenia folder for the March Inspiration Challenge!


I inked the flat side of the embossing folder with Altenew Buttercream Crisp Dye ink to create the soft yellow background and then coloured the raised areas with Artist Markers.


I kept it simple and finished off the card with a die cut sentiment from the Versatile Greetings Die set and stamped sentiment from the Bold Bouquet Outline Stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!
