Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps August 2020 Skrappy Challenge

Good morning krafty friends!
It's AUGUST 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!

Just make sure to include some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps products and make sure it's a new creation!  As soon as we have at least five people playing along, we'll be giving away a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop as the monthly prize.

I recently bought a travel journal after seeing Kimmie create some beautiful journal pages. And then she started the Krafty Journal Group on Facebook. Problem is, I couldn't figure out what to do with mine lol. So I decided to start simple by creating a watercoloured panel for my front page. I painted a very loose background in some pretty colours, added a stamped flourish and then heat embossed a sentiment and several butterflies from the newly restocked Butterfly Dreams stamp set. I also added some Stardust Stickles and tiny rhinestones as finishing touches. 


You have until Monday, August 31st to enter and you can submit as many new creations as you like for more chances to WIN!  Also be sure to share your designs on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Krafty Friends facebook page because we love to see your stuff!

Check out some more inspiration from the Krafty Team below and be inspired to get krafty!!

Blessings!

Anything Water...a Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge

Good Morning and welcome to another 
fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge


This week's challenge for you is: ANYTHING WATER

I created a bookmark with the new BE A MERMAID stamp set. She was stamped in Totally Taupe ink on Neenah 110# paper and coloured with Copics. I fussy cut her and placed her on some mermaid/underwater themed design paper. The edges were inked in Whimsical Wisteria ink. The sentiment from the Unicorns and Rainbows set was heat embossed in black. And what mermaid project is complete without some glitter?? I edged the bookmark in Thistle Stickles and coated her tail in Stardust Stickles. In place of a tassel, I added some fun ribbon, bakers twine and a wooden dollar store anchor painted with acrylics and coated in more Stardust Stickles.
