Flying or Swimming...a Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge

fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge


This week our challenge theme is:

I pulled out our Beach Blanket Bingo set and stamped the surfer bunny in Totally Taupe ink on Arches cold pressed paper. I watercoloured the scene and used a bit of Dr. Ph Martin's Bleed Proof White for the highlights. I paper pieced the surfboard with some of the fun design paper.

June 2021 Release Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...Day 4

 

   Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the June Release

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!




We are so excited to share a fantastic set

by artist

Michelle Houghton called...

LOOKIN' SHARP!


This set of potted plants will have your projects looking green and serene! The sentiments are so wonderfully fabulous and sure to bring a smile to even the most prickly friend!!


I absolutely love this set. The succulents are gorgeous and the sentiments are perfection...they make me chuckle every time I read them. I created a background panel by embossing some white cardstock with the Bouncing Bubbles Stencil. While the stencil was still in place, I sponged over it with our brand new Ocean Opulence ink in combination with Precious Pink and Soft Sage. I then stamped two of the plants in Totally Taupe ink on Arches watercolour paper and painted the images. The sentiment was stamped in Wicked Black ink.

June 2021 Release Sneak Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...Day 1


It's time for our June Release Peeks to begin 


Today's featured set is a Krafty Komeback set by 
Emilie Goulet
called.....
SHELL-O!

This was originally released in rubber,
and we're so excited to bring it back in clear!

This set is perfect to kick off your summer projects with three very cool characters who can't wait to say "Shell-o"!

I used the adorable turtle for my card today. This stamp holds a special place in my heart as I was published in one of the Copic Colouring Guides with a card featuring this sun-loving guy several years back! I stamped the turtle in Totally Taupe ink on Neenah cardstock. I then drew in a kiddie pool and used our Krafty Scenery 3 stencil to complete the background by tracing the palm tree, leaves and umbrella. The scene was coloured in copics and I paper-pieced the umbrella in some fun design paper.

Plants and Trees...a Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge

 

 Time for another weekly challenge


This week our theme is: 

PLANTS AND TREES


I used the adorable Awesome Possums set for my card today. I stamped the little possum perched on a tree branch and stamped him in Totally Taupe ink. I chose some botanical papers and then painted the possum surrounded by foliage in watercolour paints. I also used some coloured pencils to add some finishing touches to the possum. The sentiment is from Lulu and Friends.
