Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #540 - Anything Water

Oh thank goodness it's the weekend! 
I had the craziest week that sometimes seemed it
would never end and other times went by too fast
for what I needed to get done at work.  
Thank goodness for the ability to color and create
to bring my universe back in balance.  I hope to 
do some of that this weekend.  

If you follow us at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
you know that each Saturday brings a new
weekly themed challenge.  This week

I'm sharing two cards with you today for this challenge.
The first was made with a couple brand NEW products
from the July release including an adorable water
 creature stamp set called LONG IN THE TOOTH.
 The new She Sells Seashells and Pattern Parade stencils
are so fun to play with and coordinate so perfectly together.
I use the new Fresh Fields green hybrid ink  and added
some of the new Summer enamel dots too.  

The second card features the Underwater Fun! stamp set
and the Krafty Scenery 3  & Nautical Netting stencils from
the June release.  If you are in the Kraftin' Kimmie
Friends Facebook Group go to the video section and you
can watch how I colored this scene.  If you're not
in the fun krafty group we'd love to have you join us. 

Oh and those adorable little shells and starfish are
from the Turtley Awesome stamp set.  

I hope that you will decide to give yourself some good
crafty therapy this weekend and create a new WATER
themed project (card, ATC, 3d item, scrapbook page, etc.) 
to enter in our weekly challenge.  
If you need a little extra inspiration here's the July
Sketch that you could use too - it's a goody!
Image may contain: stripes

You have all week to play along and can enter as many 
times as you want (BUT each entry must be a new creation).  
Although it's not required that you use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp 
or other item we LOVE when you do and you get double
the chances for each entry toward the monthly prize
of a $25 gift voucher to spend in the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop!
Come play along! 

Thanks for popping in to visit me today! D

Hello again! Happy weekend!
I'm happy that you're back to visit me today
because it's the final day of the Sneak Peeks
for the July 2020 Release at 

And a new weekly challenge starts today too.
I'll bet you can guess the theme because it's the
same every month during release week...
Challenge #539  is ANYTHING GOES!

Haven't you just LOVED each of these new stamp sets
and coordinating stencils, inks and dots?
Do you have a favorite yet? 
If not this one just might be it!!!
Our final stamp set of the July release 
is by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen 
and it's called LONG IN THE TOOTH!

 OH MY GOSH...isn't this awesome?! 
Just look at how CUTE they are and 
the fun sentiments and fonts! And
let's not forget about that leggy little bird. 

Before I show you my card today, I wanted to 
happening today in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group.

The FUN starts at 2pm EST - so hope you can be there.
AND...pretty quickly after the release party ALL
the new goodies will be loaded in the KKS shop 
and ready to jump into your shopping carts! 

Okay so are you ready to see what I've made?! 
Here it is...
This card features the SHE SELLS SEASHELLS stencil,
the PATTERN PARADE stencil, the new FRESH FIELDS
hybrid ink and the new SUMMER DOTS.  
My layout was inspired by the current

  After using the stencil the first time with the 
FRESH FIELDS ink, I then very very lightly spread some
Nuevo glitter paste through it again over the top of what I had
already inked.  The original green still shows through but now 
there is a lighter green shimmer on top of it. It's really cool in real life! 
Wish you could see that better!  I was tickled with how it turned out.  
Here's a couple more photos that show the details a bit better

So don't forget about the ANYTHING GOES challenge.
We love to see your creations in our gallery and
in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group too. 
Each time you enter a new creation you have a chance
to win the monthly prize of a $25 gift voucher to the KKS Store.  
When you use a KKS stamp, or other  KKS product 
(stencil, dots, inks) you double your
entries that week.  Wanna WIN - then come play!

I hope you've been leaving us comments as you visit 
our blogs because one lucky commenter will WIN
some krafty $$ to spend in the KKS Store. 
It could be you!  The DT loves to hear what you
