to coordinate...it's our

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - NEW Release Peeks - DAY TWO!

 Welcome back!

Did you enjoy yesterday's Peeks?
Well, we are back with MORE fun stuff!

Today we are spotlighting a new stamp set from artist Sabrina van Vloten called I BEE-lieve in YOU!


Look at those adorable fluffy bee bums!!


I'm so excited to share my peek of this
super cute stamp set.  

This little bee reminds me of a fluffy tan
bear who also loves honey.  The fantastic
new layering stencil is so perfect for this
stamp set - so I used it too!

The bees were colored in with 
Yummy Yellow, Salty Sea and Wicked
Black inks. Then I added some 
black gel pen to the eyes and some 
ultra fine glitter to the wings. 

I love the stencil so much that I 
wanted to let make it the focus of
 a second card with one of the 
sentiments from the stamp set.

Thanks for stopping in to visit me today!

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Skrappy Challenge

Good morning, my Krafty Friends!

Thanks for stopping in to visit my blog today! 

It's JUNE and that means it's time for a new
Skrappy Challenge
at 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! 
Just make sure to include some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps products and make sure it's a new creation!  

This month my creation is a scrapbook page using the watermelon stamp from the FRUITY FUN! stamp set. 



I started with Vicki Boutin’s heavy weight mixed media art paper and stamped the images with Granite Grey ink from KKS. I stamped and masked, and then stamped and masked some more to create the cascading watermelon slices.  Then I used my karin watercolor markers to 
color in each of the pieces. 
It took a bit of patience and time but
It was also relaxing and I love how they turned out. 
I made a few extras on a separate piece of paper and then fussy cut them. A scallop oval punch was perfect to create the bite marks in some of the pieces. These were used as accent pieces on the layout. 
Did you notice how I used one of them to create the letter “u” in the title? 
I hope that you like my creation and that I’ve inspired you to get crafty and join this month’s Skrappy challenge too!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - June Challenge! Dad/Boy/Masculine and/or Outdoor Activities

 Good morning and welcome to our 
New Monthly Challenge
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Are you ready for another krafty challenge to inspire you and help get your creative mojo going? We've got some fabulous prompts for you and can't wait to see what YOU create!

This month our challenge themes for you are:

Dad/Boy/Masculine and/or Outdoor Activities

You can choose one theme or combine them!
Enter as many times as you like all month long.
It's a Choose Your Own Krafty Adventure!

June is the month to celebrate the men in our lives. 
Typically that means Father's Day, but the person
that I'm celebrating is my Brother-in-Law. 
I chose the Masculine theme for this month's 
challenge and made a birthday card for
his upcoming BIG birthday year.  

To create this card, I used the 
and the following gorgeous KKS hybrid inks:

The first thing I did was use a white cardstock
panel and sponge the different ink colors through 
the stencil using foam daubers. Then I lifted
the stencil and brushed the same colors over the 
top of what I had just stenciled. 

Since I wanted the die cut numbers to be
the same color as the chevron stripe.
I covered another piece of scrap white 
cardstock with the Magical Midnight ink and 
let it completely dry before using the number dies. 
I also made a custom sentiment strip panel
but covering another piece of scrap white
cardstock with the Sandy Shores ink. 
The sentiment is from the super fun 
Birthday Bash stamp set.   
I stamped the sentiment with
Marvellous Mocha ink but this time I was
impatient and didn't let the Sandy Shores ink
set in the paper as well as I should have so the 
mocha ink kind of sunk into the panel and
didn't stand out as much as I was intending it to.
I think the message is still quite clear and I 
have to admit that I quite enjoy teasing my BIL. 

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me 
today.  I hope that you will take some time
this month to get crafty and share your
own fabulous creation with us. 

Every month we post a brand new challenge with a choice of themes to choose from, and a mid month inspiration post with even more creative ideas! You are welcome to enter as many times as you like.


These must be new creations and you are welcome to use any stamp, however, using Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp products will earn you double entries!

*Our Challenges are now combined with the 
Skrappy Challenge (first Tuesday of the Month)
and the Christmas Challenge In the Krafty Friends FB group! So feel free to enter any or all of these - the monthly prize is a $20 voucher to the Krafty shop!!!

Mermaid Friends!

 Hello!
It's the month of May (it may snow, it may rain, it may be sunny)
and it's a great time to celebrate with Mermaids
(since it's also Mer-May in lots of crafting circles).

I saw the gorgeous color inspiration from 
 and decided that I needed to play along this week.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps also has a challenge theme
(one of 3 to choose from) that inspired me.  
I used the "Use Bright Colors" theme from that challenge.

Here's my card for these challenges


Although it's difficult to see, I added a spritz
(or 10) of soft, shimmery glitter over the top of the
stenciled panel to make it feel more "magical".

The stamp set, Mermaid Friends, and the 
gorgeous Mermaid Scales stencil as well as the
ink I used (Tranquil Teal) are all from 
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
I colored the beautiful mermaid and her sweet friend
with copic markers (BG45, BG53, YR09, YR07, YR04,
V12, V15, V17 and BG 70, BG72).
For a final touch of sparkle, I added some 
gems from Pink Fresh Studios. 

Hope you liked my card! Thanks for stopping by!
