Hey everyone, it is Saturday, and that means time for a new challenge over on the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Blog.

This weeks challenge theme is Stencils, so pull out those stencils in your stash, and your image of choice and play along with us!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Angie - Jessie Banks

I chose to colour up Angie, I swear she is me! I fussy cut her out of masking paper to create a mask, so that I could make a one layer card with her. If you have the ambition to cut a mask of an Annie stamp, just know I feel your pain. Once I had her masked I used a stencil to create the “wallpaper” behind her, as well as the carpet she is standing on.

Once that was done I coloured Angie up with my copic markers, I added some white gel pen and black coloured pencil to enhance her a little bit more!

We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!! You can enter as many times per month as you’d like!!

Thanks for stopping by,

I coloured up Teacup Fairy with my copic makers (sorry I coloured all of these while I was camping and I forgot the book with all the colours written in it out at the camper). I fussy cut her out and layered her on top of a stenciled background.

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Valentines Card 2015

Kraftin Kimmie vday

 

Hey everyone! Back again this time with a fun Valentines Day card I made using Kraftin Kimmie Stamps image I {heart} you. This one was fun using watercolour to colour the image. The white spots on the image were added using Golden Heavy body acrylic in Titanium White.

I then decided using my Hip Kit colour add on for the month of January would work perfect for this card. I tinted my Golden light molding paste using the Avery Elle Mint to be inkpad that is included in the kit, and doesn’t the Hero Arts for Basic Grey stecil just work ever so perfect! The mint coloured twine is from my stash and I am almost out of it so I am unsure of who the manufacturer is, if I had to guess I would guess The Twinery.

Hey Punk

Punk 1

Hey everyone! I have recently signed up for the Hip Kit Club monthly kits, Being as though I live in Canada, I have opted for shipping two kits together to save a few dollars, which means that I have just received the October and November kits from them (I actually got them a couple of weeks ago but have just started playing with them

I really do love these kits so far, there is a process video at the end of this blog post.

Punk 2

Is it sad, that at the time of writing this blog post, I am only 3 layouts into these 2 kits and I can not wait to get my hand on the December and January kits.

Simple trees

Hey everyone! Jess here again using the same stamp and die set as yesterday, the Snow Day set from Lawn Fawn,  This card I kept rather simple stamping the tree outline and colouring them in with my Copic’s, G111, G14, G17, and G28, then cut them out with the coordinating die.

I then wrapped some May Arts twine around the white panel and stamped my sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and attached my trees with foam tape. Then finished off the twine by tying it in a bow over top.

I dug in my Scraptastic Life Noted card stash and found this fun triangle one and cut it down to fit behind the white panel. Noticing that it looked rather plain on the Neenah Solar white card base I took out my most used and loved stencil (Tim Holtz Spatter stencil) masked off the areas I didn’t want to use and then used distress ink in Peacock Feathers, and picked raspberries through the stencil to create a lovely backround. Attatched my focal panel on some foam tape and it was complete.

Star Birthday

Hey everyone! Here is a fun card I made inspired by the one Kristina Werner did on Jennifer McQuires blog a while back. I started with a piece of Neenah Desert Storm Paper that I folded into an A2 size card. I then took a Prima Star Stencil, and inked it with white ink, let that dry thoroughly then used Distress ink in, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Dusty Concord through the same stencil with it being slightly offset.

I then took a piece of vellum from my stash (it is provocraft vellum but Bazzil would work wonderfully), Heat embossed a happy birthday sentiment and a boarder from some stamp sets from my stash (I can’t remember which ones as I forgot to write them down, I appologize.) Cut a flag into the one side and glued it on, I then used white Scrappers Spool thread and wrapped it around a few times tying a bow. The sequins are from Neat and Tangled
