Birthday Challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

 Good morning and welcome to another

fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge



This week, our challenge theme for you is: 

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!



This week, I inked up one of the adorable pups from our Puppy Power stamp set to make this fun birthday card. I first inked up a white cardstock panel with the following inks: Luscious Lemon, Charming Chartreuse, Ocean Opulence and Sparkling Sapphire. I then used a Lawn Fawn die to cut out the Hooray! sentiment and coated the letters in Glamour Dust for some sparkle. Next, I used the same inks with the Pawprints 2 stencil on the background and then popped up the die cut letters with foam tape. The little puppy was coloured in prismacolour pencils on watercolour paper. The birthday sentiment (from the same stamp set) was stamped in Wicked Black ink.

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 Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp products will earn you double entries!

    September 2022 Kraftin' Kimmie Skrappy Challenge

       Good morning krafty friends!

    It's September, 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!
    So design a new scrapbook page, bookmark, tag, altered item, planner page, art journal, ATC cards...whatever you like!


    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!

    Here's my Skrappy project featuring the September Stamp of the Month, Elf Made (click on the link for all the details on how to get this stamp free with your next order)! I made two tags featuring the elves and one of the coordinating sentiments. For the girl elf, I inked up a background using our Splish Splash stencil and the following inks: Precious Pink, Amazing Azure, Gorgeous Grape and Flirty Flamingo. I used a fineliner to trace the stencil and to add a shadow to the ink splats. For the boy elf, the background was done with our Bouncing Bubbles stencil and the following inks: Lucky Limeade and Stormy Sky. Again I used a fineliner to trace the stencil and add some thicker lines. The elves were popped up on foam squares and I added some twine and tiny jingle bells for a finishing touch. 




    Check out all the details from the Krafty Team below and be inspired to get skrappy!!
