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!

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!

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.

Each Saturday we post a new challenge and you can enter as many times as you like!!! And each submission during the month will enter you into the monthly prize which will be….
a $40 gift voucher to spend in the krafty shop!!!
What do you think? Worth playin’ for?
