Focus on a Sentiment at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello and welcome to another fun
Saturday Challenge
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Our challenge for you is to
 FOCUS ON THE SENTIMENT!

Each and every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and 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 a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp will earn you double entries! Each submission will enter you into the monthly draw of a $40 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

My sentiment card uses our fantastic set HAPPY THOUGHTS. I sponged the background with our inks: Charming Chartreuse, Lovely Lagoon, Mermaid Melody and Sparkling Sapphire. I stamped the sentiment in Wicked Black ink and then used our Starburst Stencil with Bo Bunny Sugar glitter paste to add a little pizzazz.





Did you know....for the month of July we've got lots of fun stuff going on over at the Krafty Friends facebook group?!  We are celebrating Harry Potter's birthday with giveaways, challenges, a guest designer contest, prizes, sales and more!!

inspiration to help you get creative
with your Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!



t's my turn to share a creation this week and I chose to feature our FROM THE OTTER SIDE stamp set. This set has a few adorable main images along with some fun coordinating sentiments. I stamped these two otters in our TOTALLY TAUPE ink on Arches 140 lb cold pressed watercolour paper, sketched in a background and did the entire scene in watercolour paints. I added highlights to the water with some white gouache.

Capture the Moment...June 2019 Blog Hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps


Today we are celebrating all the 
new goodies from our
JUNE Release at
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

We are celebrating with a fun hop around the Krafty Team's blogs to check everything out in action! 

The release includes:

HIP HIPPO-RAY by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen

YOU ARE MER-MAZING from artist Neda Sadreddin

CAPTURE THE MOMENT from artist, Cheryl Grant 

Our newest Hybrid Ink in the large ink pad, mini cube and ink refill called
SALTY SEA


Two new stencils called
WONDERFUL WAVES and MERMAID SCALES

Everything is NOW available at the krafty shop!  All the new products are available individually but if you HAVE to have it ALL this month, you can pick up our GIMME KIMMIES KIT which contains one of EVERYTHING we released this month and at a discount but for a limited time!

Confession: I have never made is an ATC (artist trading card). These fun mini creations measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Thought it was time to give it a go! I inked up one of the images from Capture the Moment and stamped just a portion of the image in Wicked Black ink. I coloured the girls with Copic markers. The background panel was created by sponging the paper in our new Salty Sea ink and then using our Wonky Chevron stencil with Sparkling Sapphire ink. I also used a trio of Underwater Dots and a sentiment from the set to finish is off.
