I added a sentiment strip using the new Sum-Sum-Summertime stamp set and a diecut 'hi' which was cut from blue cardstock. I added some blue ink to create an ombre colour and some white gel pen for highlights!

I stamped elements from both the adorable Monkey Business and Stu-Pand-Ous stamp sets to make an outdoor jungle scene!! I love that there are so many mix and match accessories! My daughter had requested a card with a pink monkey on it for her friends birthday and she loved it!! 

I added some clouds using the Chubby Clouds stencil and Ocean Opulence ink and stamped the sentiment with Berry Bold ink to match the monkeys, which were coloured with Copics.

KKS June Krafty Peeks Day 3- Sum-Sum-Summertime!

Good morning and welcome to Day THREE of our June Krafty Peeks! 


Today's set is called SUM-SUM-SUMMERTIME!


This set is a KRAFTY KOMEBACK stamp set!


I watercoloured the delicious treats in this set using Tonic Nuvo watercolor pencils! Then I used KKS inks in Festive Fuchsia, Tempting Tangerine and Summer Sunshine with the Summer Sunbeams stencil to create a bright summer background! 


I added some Stickles glitter gel and Touch Of Gloss to add some sparkle and shine to my card.


I stamped the sentiment, popped it up on my background and finished it off with a few matching sequins!


For those who are new around these parts, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps will be celebrating 15 years this fall so we have a lot of retired images most people have never seen before!  (And there are lots of requests for past stamp sets!) So once in a while we bring a set back and this one will be back this weekend!

AND check out this scrumptious new coordinating stencil!

It's called I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM!!!



It's a set of TWO layering stencils to create this colourful summertime background!  Yummy!

Happy hoppin' and see YOU tomorrow for more awesome goodies!

KKS June Krafty Peeks Day 1- Floral Fun!

 Who's ready for some brand new Krafty Goodies?

It's time to bring you NEW stamp sets and layering stencils
from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


In case you haven't heard, we are moving the release to every other month, but with the same number of wonderful products!


So we will be sharing FOUR new stamp sets (including a summer Krafty Komeback) and TWO new sets of layering stencils over the course of this week!


Today we are excited to kick things off with a stunning and elegant stamp set from artist Michelle Houghton called 
FLORAL FUN!! 
 


I created a pretty traveler's notebook featuring this beautiful stamp set in the last virtual Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps retreat. I layered on the Butterfly Bounty stencil and used Festive Fuchsia and Designer Denim inks. I watercoloured the pretty tulips with Zebra Pen Clickart markers, adding some extra length to the stems and fussy cutting out.


Here I watercoloured the daffodil and iris flowers and used coordinating KKS inks in Mellow Mustard, Luscious Lemon, Soft Sage and Designer Denim. I added some details with the Pattern Parade stencil as well.  I stamped the sentiments in the set in various areas and now I have a pretty journal to add photos and memories to!


As you head out on today's Krafty Hop you'll get to enjoy lots of gorgeous creations from our Krafty Team featuring FLORAL FUN in combination with some of our other incredible products such as our Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks!
