Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Saturday Challenge #525 - Get Messy!

Good morning and welcome to another Saturday challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Are you ready for another fun and krafty challenge to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing? We've got some fabulous ideas for you and can't wait to see what you create! This week our challenge for you is to Get Messy! I decided to create with the beautiful Happy Hummingbird Stamp Set and use one of the backgrounds I created for the 10 Ways To Use Your Stencils Live Video in the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Facebook Group last weekend! You can even download a PDF with full instructions in the group HERE.

I'm using the Sweater Weather Stencil along with beautiful Gold Nuvo Glimmer Paste to get this pretty textured background. I stamped with Wicked Black Krafty Kolours Ink and coloured the Hummingbird and flowers in with Copic Markers. I even added a little watercolour to my sentiment strip and gold foiling with the Deco Foil Adhesive Pen and some gold foil. A few pretty purple dots from the Polar Krafty Dots pack add two more pops of colour! This card is perfect for Spring!!

Scrap Shotz Chat & Craft - Ep 1 - Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glazes!

Howdy! I thought I'd share a fun series we are starting on the Scrap Shotz Facebook Page - Chat & Craft, which is chatting and crafting, he he! I edited the video for YouTube below, and you can check out some fun techniques and tips when using the beautiful NEW Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glazes as well as follow along to create a beautiful stamped and embossed tag.


Here's a look at the YouTube Video, and you can also find the full length LIVE version on Facebook HERE.


I pulled out these beautiful stamps from the Tim Holtz Modern Christmas Stamp set to create two pretty tags. I really love this set and most of the images can be used for more than just Christmas!


We played around with Vicki Boutin's Wildflower & Honey Stencils (on sale!), Distress Oxide Inks and the Ranger Embossing Dabber.


We even embossed on some pretty diecut ephemera pieces! These ones are from the Tim Holtz Botanical Set, but who doesn't have lots of ephemera laying around?!


The Embossing Glazes also worked beautifully on gold metal brads and some Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers... oh so many ideas!


You can find these fun Embossing Glazes in the Scrap Shotz store! I'm sure you'll have as much fun playing with them as I do!!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Saturday Challenge #524 - Party Animals!

Good morning and welcome to another Saturday challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Are you ready for another fun and krafty challenge to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing? We've got some fabulous ideas for you and can't wait to see what you create! This week our challenge for you is to make a project with the theme "Party Animals"!
I thought the adorable little hedgehog with his balloon & cute sentiment from the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set would be perfect for this challenge theme! I stenciled on some Ruby Red Krafty Kolours ink using the Confetti Stencil and stamped the image and sentiment with Wicked Black Ink, before colouring with Copics. I added NEW Party Time Krafty Dots and some puffy clouds to finish off the scene.
Inside, I stamped a festive sentiment using the NEW Party Time Sentiments Stamp Set and the Ruby Red Ink along with fun stars from the set and the NEW Morning Marigold Ink.
Each and every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and you are welcome to enter as many times as you like.
