Beautiful Blooms...a Kraftin' Kimmie Preview!

Welcome to the May 2018 Kraftin' Kimmie Previews! 

You *may* have seen a peek or two of today's stamp set over the last couple of weeks...that's because it was part of our latest Krafty Kard Kit AND it works in perfect combination with our brand NEW Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks!!

Introducing BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen. This stunning set contains several gorgeous large flower images....carnations, roses, daisies....oh my! The set also comes with a choice of a few different leaf styles and stems! Plus the sweet sentiment, "Bloom where you are!"

Additionally, we are doing a GIVEAWAY of the ENTIRE release on the Krafty Friends facebook page! 

Be sure to join us at the LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday afternoon at 1pm EST. We'll be checking out all FIVE new clear stamp sets, sharing fabulous creations, giving away prizes and having tons of krafty fun.

If you tuned in to the live videos we posted the day of the Krafty Kolours ink release, you will have already had a peek at my card. ;)  I stamped one of the large flower images from Beautiful Blooms in our Raspberry Rose hybrid ink on multi-media paper. I then put a little drop of our Wicked Black reinker on my craft mat and applied it with a paintbrush to add some shading to the flower. After stamping the stem in a green ink and adding more shading with the black ink, I fussy cut the flower and set it aside. To create the background, I sponged a panel of multi-media paper with our Mermaid Melody ink pad. I then tinted some light modelling paste with a few drops of our Lovely Lagoon reinker, laid down a stencil and applied the paste to the background panel. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Blooms set...that panel was sponged with Raspberry Rose ink and the sentiment was stamped in Wicked Black ink. I used my favourite tombow mono glue to adhere the elements to the card base. 



Here's a look at the full set:

This is gorgeous... did you use the "texture paste" or embossing paste like Steven and Marilyn?

The lovely lagoon and Raspberry Rose are my favorite color combo. I love that you used the reinker wig some paste for texture on the background!
