Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Girls Just wanna have fun 2 - Jessie Banks.jpg

I paired up the Girls Just wanna Have Fun and the Let Your Light Shine sets to create this shabby layered card. I haven’t made a card like this in forever and am so out of practice! Guess that means I should make more?!?!

I hope you will play along with us over on the Kraftin’ Kimmie Blog!

You’re Spectacular

Hey all! I have a soft and dreamy post featuring The Greeting Farm to share with you all today.

I coloured up You’re Spectacular with my copic markers. Adding it to a splashy watercolour background that matches the pink on her dress, kept this card super simple. I usually love adding sentiments to the front, but this time I chose to write a fun personal message inside for a friend.

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps – Flowers Challenge


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

This week our challenge for you is Flowers!

kraftin kimmie stamps - tweedie pies - jessie banks

I used the Tweetie Pies stamp sent and painted it up with my watercolours, adding some branches with hanging flowers off of them. They aren’t perfect but I am really happy with how this scene turned out!

I was going to add a sentiment to the front, but couldn’t find a perfect place for it, so I will add it to the center of the card.

I can’t wait to see what you make to play along with us! Hop over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Blog and link up your make!

Thanks for stopping by!

I pulled out the flowers and cut a whole bunch of masks to make this great little card, layering the flowers to create a couple clusters. I then pulled out my watercolours and painted this up. I am over the moon with how this came out!
