Today's set features an assortment of fabulous spooky sentiments

MONSTER SENTIMENTS!

I stamped the fantastic Birthday Witches sentiment with Alluring Amethyst and Wicked Black Inks.



I splattered on some of the sparkly Dylusions mist from the July Add-On Bundle and then used the super fun August Add-Ons including the Halloween Tape, moon & stars enamel dot sprinkles and awesome chipboard, which I heat embossed for a cool effect!

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps August Skrappy Challenge - ATC Tutorial!

Good morning krafty friends!

It's August, and that means it's time for a brand new
SKRAPPY CHALLENGE

with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


 The theme of course is ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

For this challenge you can make anything that strikes your fancy....except a card!
So design a new scrapbook page, bookmark, tag, altered item, planner page, art journal, ATC cards...whatever you like!

Here's a quick little tutorial on how I created my project for this month's Skrappy Challenge! 

1. I used the Lots Of Love Stencil and sprayed through using Distress and Dylusions Mists. I used Vicki Boutin's Foundations paper, which is a great base when you're doing any mixed media! You can see where I sprayed through the stencil and then flipped it over and layed the stencil face down for both positive and negative effects.


2. Next, after the sprays dried, I added ink sponging with the Magical Mosaic Stencil and Luscious Lemon, Ocean Opulence and Lavish Lilacs Inks in various areas around the page.


3. I splattered black Distress Oxide Spray over the background. You do need to be really sure this is dry before moving onto the next step! I used a heat gun.


4. I stamped sentiments from the Butterfly Dreams Stamp Set after cutting the background into 2.5 x 3.5" rectangles for an ATC size. I used Gorgeous Grape, Festive Fuchsia and Sparkling Sapphire Inks.


5. I added some sparkle with Stickles Glitter Paste and the polka dot pattern in the Pattern Parade Stencil.


6. I stamped the gorgeous butterflies from the Butterfly Dreams Stamp Set with Nuvo Embossing Ink and then with Wicked Black Ink on a stamping platform before heat embossing with WOW Wanderlust powder for a sparkly effect.

7. I fussy cut the butterflies and then glued them to the background in the center of the butterfly, over a circle of gold metallic thread, leaving the wings unattached. 


8. I added gold flat sequins & small butterfly sequins.


9. I finished it off with sentiment strips cut from Tim Holtz stickers and drawn stitched lines using a black pen.



Just make sure to include some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps products and make sure it's a new creation!  As soon as we have at least five people playing along, we'll be giving away a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop as the monthly prize!  

You have until Monday, September 5th to enter, and you can submit as many new creations as you like for more chances to WIN!  Also be sure to share your designs on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Krafty Friends facebook page because we love to see your stuff!

Check out all the details from the Krafty Team below and be inspired to get skrappy!!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps July Krafty Peeks... Day THREE! Puppy Power! Plus a Challenge!

 Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the July Release 

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

We are so excited to share an adorable set

by artist

Becky Pearce called...

PUPPY POWER!

This sweet set has so many cute doggie images and accessories, plus sentiments for any occasion! Plus our new Pawprints 2 stencil is perfectly matched!!

I started off creating a mixed media background with the Shimmer Spray from the Add-On Bundle and added in some of the sprays from my stash! I spritzed the mists on my glass mat, added a spray of water and dipped the paper in several times, drying in between. Then I splatted some water and dried again for lots of inky goodness! Finally, I added the paw print stencil using Marvelous Mocha and the new Glorious Grapefruit Inks.

I stamped these adorable pups and coloured them in with Nuvo Alcohol Markers, using some soft, neutral brown colours. Then I pulled out the other awesome new stencil we have this month - Breezy Backgrounds and created a pretty and clean stenciled area for these cuties to sit, of course using again the new Glorious Grapefruit ink!


I finished off the card with Nuvo Dream Drops embellishments, Nuvo Crystal Glaze for the puppies noses and eyes, and a sweet sentiment from the set stamped again with Marvelous Mocha!
