Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Polar Pals 2 - Jessie Banks.jpg

I love making cards, I am a cardmaker at heart. So I did a tag for today’s anything but a card challenge. I used Polar Pals!

I also have something fun to share with you all. The benefit of working on an amazing team, and having such great people around you can learn lots. I do this regularly but I don’t normally post about it. Some of you may have looked at this tag and recognized it. That’s because I lifted the talented Melanie’s colouring, which you can see here.

I actually do this quite often when I see something I love, but I don’t normally post it anywhere. I thought this one would be fun for you all to see. So what I did was look at Melanie’s card once, then I sat down with my paints and attempted to recreate it. I learned some fun things about fur, and all that jazz. Some of which will be used regularly in my paintings in the future. That is what is so awesome about a design team, we love to create samples as ideas, and things for you to lift to help you learn, and grow in this hobby.

You have TWO full months to play along until Monday January 28th at midnight EST!
Also be sure to share your creations on the Krafty Friends facebook page because we LOVE to see your stuff!

Check out some incredible inspiration from the Krafty Design Team below, then join us for all the fun!!
Happy Kraftin’!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Puddle Jumpers - Jessie Banks

I pulled out Puddle Pals for this fun little scene. I stamped him out while I was in Ontario and did most of his painting during lay-overs in the airports. When I got home I finished off the background, completing this little guy all in watercolour.

As some of you know, the first annual Kraftin’ Kimmie Retreat was this past weekend, and those of you that were there saw this little RACCOON come to life! I was so happy with him, unfortunately the lighting on the photo was slightly off, and I left him to live with Kim so this is what we get. It is fairly close though.

You will see these new images in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs in combination with the NEW Granite Grey and Bubbly Blue inks AND the NEW Sweater Weather and Sparkling Snowflakes STENCILS!

You’ll see the list of Krafty design team members and Krafty Guests below so hop around and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!!

I am hosting this weeks challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Our theme is Orange and Purple!! So for this one I pulled out Spooky Suckers and my copic markers!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Spooky suckers 2- Jessie Banks

I love how he is peeking in from the side, and the stark white background allows them to appear as though they are floating. I always wanted to float as a child, not necessarily fly, but float. Yes, I was an odd kid.

Check out the Orange and Purple creations from our fabby design team and guests!
