Happy birthday little monster!



 Hi everyone!
MiC gal Deborah here today with some inspiration for our challenge for adding some details with a black pen. Well, I failed… Sorry! I didn’t understand the challenge completely and did something else. Oops! Instead of adding texture with a black pen, I drew extra things to the image. Like the green monster, I drew some eyes on them instead of 3 circles as eyes and added brows. To the orange monster I drew a tongue out of his mouth. And for the yellow monster I’ve added a bow, brows and lashes to his eyes.

So if you’re interested, here are the colours I’ve used:
  • Yellow: Y00, 11, 15, 17
  • green: G28, YG17, 13, 11
  • orange: YR07, 04, 02, 00, E08
  • blue: B26, 24, 21
  • grey: W7, 5, 3, 1
  • red: E29, R46, R24, R22
  • pink: RV69,17,  55, 51

Baby Love

Welcome to Day ONE of our February release of 2018
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Today we're kickin' off the party....or should I say shower....
with a sweet new set from our fabulous artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen!

You'll notice there is a theme this month and it's all about BABIES!! So we're having a shower instead of a party! Aren't I funny? 
This versatile set is called BABY LOVE!

foto van Kim Reid.
This gorgeous set comes with lots of large images, smaller accessory stamps, scenery stamps and awesome words & sentiments!! You'll be able to design shower invitations, birth announcements and baby cards not to mention gift tags, bags and boxes and amazing scrapbook pages! Think of the possibilities!


I've designed 4 cards with the same layout in 2 different colours with 2 different images. How cute are they?


This cute elephant is my favorite image of this whole stampset, I think he is so adorable! I've used Glossy accents to add some details to the hearts and a white gelpen on his eyes to let sparkling his eyes.


On this image I used a white gelpen to add some dots and used the Wink of Stella clear brush to give some sparkle. I did it on the pink and blue one.


And here's a picture from all 4 together!


All of the Krafty Krew design team members and Krafty Guest listed below have lots of great designs to share with you today featuring the BABY LOVE stamp set! Be sure to hop around and leave lots of love at each and every stop because one lucky commenter will WIN a $10 gift voucher each day this week to the krafty shop!

  • skin: E04, E13, E11, E00, E000
  • hair: Y21, E59, E37, E35, YR23
  • red: R59, R46, R24, R22

  • orange: Y35, Y38, YR04, YR07
  • background: E41, E40

Furry Angels

foto van Kim Reid.
Hi everyone!
Welcome to Day TWO of our January Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We all have lost furry friends over the years and know friends and family who have also been through such a devastating ordeal. It's hard to know what to do in these situations but I think sending a sweet handmade creation with warm thoughts and hugs is so helpful.
And so we have the new FURRY ANGELS stamp set!
foto van Kim Reid.

And here's the card I've created using the new stampset. I sponged some clouds using a die from Lawn Fawn and some Distress Ink. The sentiment is embossed with white Wow! embossingpowder on black cardstock. Some sequins completes the card.

I've coloured this beautiful dog with my Copic markers.
Here are the colours I've used:
fur: E29, E25, E23, E21
wings: C3, C1, C0
blue collar: B18, B05, B02, B00

Classy Olivia

Hi everyone!
I wish you a very happy New Year, may all your dreams come true! I just want to show you the card I’ve created for the new skin challenge. I know it’s hard sometimes but I have 1 big tip for you all: clean your markers before you start to colour! It depends from your colourcombination, but my E11, E04 or E13 are starting to be tacky really fast.  Rub on your nibs with some alcohol and make sure your marker contains enough ink.
For this card I’ve used  the gorgeous new Classy Olivia Digi Stamp. She was awesome to colour! She’s one of the new teen stamps, so I decided to use some trendy haircolours: a greyish brown and a purple ombre and purple lips.
Here are all the Copic colours I’ve used to colour her up:
  • skin: E04, E13, E11, E00, E000
  • hair: E79, E77, E74, E71, V28, V25, V22, V20
  • dress: BG78, BG18, BG13, BG11, BG10
  • purple: V09, V17, V15, V12
  • eyes: YG67, YG63, YG61, YG11

Let your dreams take flight

Hi everyone!

I just want to wish you a very happy New Year!

Today we're kicking off the Krafty year with a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. The theme of this week is "Sentiment", so you just create a card using a sentiment.


I sponged paper with Distress Ink, splattered some water on it and stamped with some small daubers white ink on it.
When it was dry I stamped the sentiment and the butterflies from the stampset "Butterfly Dreams" by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I've glued it to a black cardbase, added some sequins and the card was finished.


Hope you'll find some time to play along!

Fairy Gift

MiC gal Deborah here today with my last Christmascard of this year.  I really love this cute Fairy Gift Digi Stamp. I couldn’t wait almost another year to colour up this cutie. I sponged the background using my Distress ink and I coloured the chipboard with my Y21 Copic marker to give it a bit of contrast against the green.


Here are the Copic colours I’ve used:
  • skin: E04, E13, E11, E00
  • hair: B21, 100, BV29, BV25
  • red: E29, E08, R46, R24, R22
  • green: YG17, YG13, YG11, G28
  • white: C3, C1, C0
