WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE - KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!


It's Wonderful Wednesday challenge time with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! We hope you can play along with us and as always it's ANYTHING GOES!  
We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on until September 5th at midnight on the KKS blog! At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!
 

Hi there!  For today's card I've used one of my all time favourite stamps from KKS and it's called Treena Twinkles!  I wanted to do something special so I decided to try and make an Easel Card with a drawer.  I had to use some of my math skills for the drawer.....lol.
So first off, I coloured the image with Copics and then created a background using Distress Inks.  I used the Spellbinder Round die behind the image.  The designer papers are from the Echo Park - Let's Be Mermaids paper pad.  I love the effect of the swirled purple ribbon.  It kinda looks like waves!  I also used the Spellbinder Labels die on the sentiment.  I used a couple of MS punches for background details.  To finish it off I added some pearls and flowers.


So this is a picture of the card/drawer opened.  I'm very happy with how it turned out!  Thanks for stopping by and have a krafty week!

I've used Copics to colour the image and then I cut her out and popped her onto a background that was inked using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  The papers are from the Echo Park - Dots and Stripes paper pad.  The doily is a die from Cheery Lynn.  The beautiful die behind the image is called Triple Tear Die from Spellbinders.  Some of the other dies used are; Scalloped border die from MFT and Stitched Circle die from La-La-Land.  I finished the card off with a few flowers and some twine. Thanks for stopping by and have a krafty week!!

I actually squealed when I saw this stamp set!!  Aren't they the cutest!!  So of course I decided right away this little cutie needed to be on a shaker card!  So, the designer paper is from the Doodlebug - Fairy Tales paper pad.  I embossed the white panel with a Valentine Hearts Embossing folder by Cuttlebug. I used the Spellbinder Round and Fancy dies for the shaker and filled it with various colored hearts and stars confetti.  I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the lollipop to give it a candied look. Unfortunately it doesn't show in the picture!  Don't you just love that sentiment!!  It's my grown up daughter through and through....she's a candy addict....lol!

I've decided to make a pop-up card using a few of the Lawn Fawn Dies.  They worked perfect with this awesome stamp set by the artist Cheryl Grant.  There are so many combinations and possibilities with this set.  I colored up the images and then cut them out to pop them onto the card.  The combination of dies I used are the Leafy Tree Backdrop, Stitched Hillside, Flower Hillside and the Grassy Hillside dies.  The paper is by Doodlebug.  The butterflies were made using an MS butterfly punch.
Here is a picture of the front of my card when it is closed.


I used the same dies as the inside only they were glued flat to the card base.  I also have a picture of a side view.

Hi and welcome to another Anything Goes challenge with Kraftin'  Kimmie Stamps!  My card this week features the stamp Social Sally!  I chose to do a background and then fussy cut my colored image and add it to the background using foam squares.  Then I used the YNS Stitched Rectangle Die to cut it out.  I colored the image with Copics.  The clouds were sponged on using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I added the grass and ground using various greens.  The designer paper is from a Doodlebug paper pad and the clouds are also YNS dies.  A very fast and simple card to do.  Thanks for dropping by and have a great week!
