Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Fabulous Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes


Welcome to another fabulous Krafty Challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Are you ready for some krafty fun??
We've got a super easy theme for you this week and we hope you can play along!

We want EVERYONE to play along and join in the krafty fun, SO we've made this week an easy challenge!
It's ANYTHING GOES!


I used the Buddy Bears stamp set for this weeks challenge. the Anything Goes challenge is the perfect excuse to use a stamp set you may have already purchased but yet to use.

I kept my card creation clean and simple but using a background stamp set to stamp out the gird background. I then die-cut out a square shape in a coordination coloured to frame my Copic coloured image. To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment in a red ink and then added some black Nuvo Drops.

be sure to submit your krafty design for your chance to WIN! You have until Friday, April 27th to enter this challenge! Keep in mind, all entries are welcome but you must use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp in order to win.
Each Saturday we post a new challenge and you can enter as many times as you like!!! And each submission during the month will enter you into the monthly prize which will be....
a $40 gift voucher to spend in the krafty shop!!! 
What do you think? Worth playin' for?

Stamp AnnieThing Mondays - You're Sassy

Hi Friends!
Its my day to share a card creation on the Stamp AnnieThing blog. I created a bright and cheery card that anyone can whip up in no time. 



Today I decided to use and colour up "Melanie - You're Sassy" using Copic Markers. If I am being honest, I wasn't super happy with how I coloured her dress...so I added some white dots using a white gel pen to help cover up what I didn't like.

I used various dies from my collection to create a simple card layout. To add some more interest to my card, I stamped the sentiment that comes with the stamp set repeatedly using a similar ink colour as the card stock to get a tone on tone effect. To finished off my card, I added some green Nuvo Drops for a fun touch.

I hope you liked my card creation!
Until next time - Stephen

Hi Friends! 
Today I am excited to share a quick and simple card I created using the stamp set, "Dorothy -  Have A Sweet Day".

I coloured her using my Copic markers using the following colours:

To finish off my card I created a scene using various stitched dies and some Distress Inks. To create the cloud background, I created a stencil using dies from the Land Of Oz die set and did some simple ink blending using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

I hope you liked my card creation!

 Until next time - Stephen

To finish off my card, I masked off the coloured image and did some ink blending using Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks. I also added a few irridecent sequins.

I hope you liked my card creation for today! Thanks to all who joined me live while I created.

Until Next time - Stephen

Bellariffic Friday - Succulent Chicks

Hi Friends!
I am here with another Bellariffic Friday post to share with you. This week, I am played around with the Succulent Chicks stamp set from Stamping Bella and created a clean and simple card that anyone can whip up in no time.


I used Copic markers to colour these adorable Chicks and then die cut them out using the coordination Cut It Out dies

Copics

Pots - E18, E19, E17, E15
Succulents - BV02, YG17, YG07, YG03, YG01

Although the stamp set came with a lovely sentiment, I decided to pull a sentiment from the Garden Girl Flower Sentiments stamp set.

To finish off my card, I used a woodgrain background stamp to create my backdrop and matted it on a coordinating card stock. lastly I added a few crystal gems for some extra sparkle and shine.

I hope you enjoyed my card creation for this weeks Bellariffic Friday! Also, be sure to stop by the Stamping Bella blog for more inspiration!

Until next time - Stephen
