I don't like morning people...

Hi everyone!

It's time for a Krafty Komeback!!!



As you know, lots of the Kraftin' Kimmie rubber stamp sets have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore. Well, we've decided to switch some things up and rerelease a few of your faves in clear! And today we're announcing a new one!

This hilarious stamp set features one of our most popular images from artist Annie Rodrigue! I mean, how many of us need our coffee in the morning before our feet even hit the floor? And I know I don't love mornings....do you?? Haha! What a great stamp set to send to our coffee-lovin' friends!
It's ANGIE!!!

You might remember this sassy lady! And I think the new sentiments are too funny and match Angie's attitude perfectly!!

For this card I've used some papers by Doodlebug "cream & sugar" and I paperpieced the robe.
I coloured Angie with my Copic markers, here are the colours that I've used:
skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E95 (blush)
hair: E51, E59, E57, E55, E53

Aim em Up Cupid!

Aim em Up Cupid

 Hi Make it Crafty friends!

Deborah here with a new blogpost for you today. I can’t get enough of Valentine’s cards lately. So here’s my last one for this year. I fell in love with this adorable Cupid! Look at his face, he’s so funny!


I kept this card so simple. I just distressed the background with some reds and pinks and added some dots with my white Sharpie pen. I also added a chipboard “love” and I coloured the first layers with some red Copic markers.  Cupid is coloured using Copic markers too.

Here are the colours I’ve used:
  • skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
  • hair: E41, E49, E47, E44, E43
  • wings: BV25, BV23, BV20
  • wood: E37, E35, E33, E31
  • tongue: R59, R46, R24, R22

Always look on the bright side of life!

Hi Make it Crafty friends!

Today I’ve prepared a card for the positive minded people between us. Try to enjoy life because it’s beautiful! Life is too short to be unhappy because some silly things happend.
There’s a song about it, do you know it? Always look on the bright side of life…


For this card I’ve used the Bright Side of Life Chipboard quote, I love it so much. There are some other fun quotes in the shop too, check them out. I’ve heat embossed it with some silver embossingpowder. I sponged a background with some blue Distress inks and I splattered some water on it and depped it with a papertowel after about 30 seconds. I used a die for the Rainbow and then I used some clouds chipboard, but I used the old ones, the new ones are in the shop now and they are called: Fluffy Clouds Chipboard Set. I embossed them with some white embossingpowder.

I used some clear sequins and some raindrops as a finishing touch.

I treasure you!

Hi everyone! 

Today it's saturday so there's another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This time it's "hearts".
It's almost valentine, so we need some cards, right?

For this card I've used the stampset "Let your light shine". I really love this versatile set and the sentiments are awesome too!
I watercoloured a heart with some pinks and red and added some hearts on it that I've coloured with my Copic markers. I just added some coloured dots and the card is finished!


To celebrate Kimmie's birthday, instead of a "Frugal Friday", we're doing a CREATE YOUR OWN SALE!!! Use the code BDAYPARTY to get 25% off of your order!!! (does not include the Secret Club set)

Tango

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to write a fast blogpost about this card. I made it for Alicia Bel. It's a brand new digital image in her shop and it's called "Tango". It was such a pleasure to colour this image, I had so much fun to colour her hair, her dress,... 


I coloured everything with my Copic markers.  I tried to colour the dress like she's shining! If you see the dresses of those dancers, they are always so shiny and glittery.  I made a very simple background behind the dancers and tried to give them all the attention that they deserve.


Thank you for stopping by,

My heart belongs to you!


Hi Copic friends!!!

Today I've got some valentine inspiration. Yes, I made a valentine's card! 
I love to make them but mostly I don't sent them to anyone, maybe it's time for a change... 😉



I choose to work with this cutie by C.C. Designs and she's called "Tiny Heart". I think she's so adorable! I always colour the skin first and after that I do the hair. 
Here you can see a picture when I did that and here I mapped out where the shadows are going to be. I always do that with a light colour first, and if I'm happy with that, I do the same with the darkest colour.  I guess it's just how you like to work.


Here are the Copic colours I've used: 
skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E93
hair: E59, E25, E23, E41
turqoise: BG18, BG13, BG11, BG10
pink: RV69, RV17, RV55, RV52
white: C5, C3, C1
red: R59, R46, R24


 After I coloured this little girl, I did the background with some Distress Inks, drawed some hearts with a white gelpen and I stamped some hearts with a fushia ink to give it some more life.


I added some sequins for a finishing touch.

White

Hi everyone!
Today there's a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! It's called "White".
I must say, it wasn't an easy one for me, I'm not used to not using colour.
So I played with a few textures on my card, I used 2 embossing folders to create a design in a white paper. As a finishing touch, I've used some clear sequins. The stampset I've used is called "Sincere Thanks" by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ofcourse ;-)


Have you seen the new Krafty Komeback?!?!? Kimmie's re-releaseing SQUISHY HUGS in clear!!!! and a teeny bit updated!

Now create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp and be sure to use our THEME as a starting point for your creation!!! You will have until February 3rd at 11:55 pm EST to get your entries in!
Pull out those fabby stamps and play along! Have some krafty fun and join us this week!!
