Day 12 of the Krafty Days of Christmas 2019

Welcome to Day TWELVE of 
the Twelve Krafty Days of Khristmas!
It's our FINAL DAY!

We've had such fun looking back on all the incredible new releases we've had at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps in 2019!
Today, the entire team is joining in to share projects again featuring each month's release.

I'm sharing a card featuring OCTOBER - Snowflake Kisses!.



I painted a simple watercolour background and then stamped the snowflakes in our inks (Pretty in Pink, Purple Pansy and Pink Pizzazz). The sentiment is stamped in our Wicked Black ink and I added some stickles and rhinestones for sparkle.

Make sure to visit the KKS blog to check out what the other designers are showing!

Blessings,

Melanie

I tweaked this little cub from BEARY LOVE to create a Christmas card by cutting around his paws and inserting a wooden candy cane in place of the heart from the original image. I also used two of our inks (Goblin Green and Ruby Red) with our Beautiful Burlap stencil to create the background.
Thanks for visiting...make sure to check out Melany's creation for today!

I made another card with the adorable Yeti Or Not set. This time, I stamped the little snowboarding yeti on Arches cold pressed paper in Totally Taupe ink and watercoloured the entire scene. I used a bit of white gouache on the yeti and for the snowflakes. A wee bit of stickles added just the right amount of sparkle to the snow.

Make sure it's a NEW creation!  As soon as we have at least five people playing, we'll be giving away a PRIZE...one lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

I made a bookmark with a simple watercolour background and a sentiment stamped in Wicked Black Ink from the JUST ONE MORE PAGE stamp set. I love being able to take a sentiment from a set and making it the focus of the project. I glittered the edges of the bookmark with stardust stickles in the style of Krafty Girl Brigitte! I also added a bit of texture with our Wonky Chevron stencil and Lovely Lagoon ink.

Welcome to another fun
Saturday Challenge

Our challenge is:
TIC TAC TOE

Here is your Tic Tac Toe board. Choose any line of 3 items to create your card or project!

My 3 elements are orange, leaf and square. I freehanded a watercoloured leaf, dropped in various colours including orange and made a simple square card. The sentiment is from our LEAVES ARE FALLING set and it was stamped in Wicked Black ink.

You are welcome to use any stamp, however using Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and products will earn you double entries.  Each submission will enter you into the monthly draw of a $40 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

We've also got a sketch (one of the tic tac toe elements) to inspire you for the month of September! You don't have to use it but it's there for you to use if you need a little kick start... feel free to use it any time!
