Darling Dragons Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Anyone that knows me knows I LOVE dragons! I even have a couple small sculptures and artwork in my craft room of them so of course I had to get this Darling Dragons set from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!
I wanted to try something a little different with them for this card. I did a galaxy background using my Distress Ink Oxides. Then added some clouds using the Border Die 2 from Jaded Blossom and light grey cardstock from Papertrey Ink. 
My dragons I colored up on Xpress It Cardstock, cut then up and adhered two of the three dragons with foam squares and the third dragon just directly to the card. For some final touches I used my pretty new Nuvo drops for white speckles. I tried to add some sparkle mist but forgot that the oxides react with water lol ..so the sparkle didn’t show up – I just got more water spots.
Supplies
Distress Ink Oxides – Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Worn Lipstick, Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot
Xpress It Cardstock
Papertrey Ink Cardstock
Copics
RV69, R59, R46, R24
Hope you enjoyed today’s card!

Blue Jeans C.C. Designs

Happy Thursday! I wanted to share today a card I made using Blue Jean from C.C. Designs. She is one of the stamps I picked up shown in one of my haul videos. I’ll post the video down below if you’d like to see what other goodies I got too! 
For this card, I used my Tim Holtz stencil an Distress Ink Oxides. I blended 3 different colors and love how they look together. For my image, I colored her out on Xpress It cardstock, cut her out with my Scan n Cut and adhered her to the card using foam squares.  I love this image! She is one of my favorite to color up!

Friends Furever My Favorite Things

Hello! Hello! I’m popping in to share with you a CAS card I created using My Favorite Things. Super sweet stamp set and so many cute sentiments on it!
For this one, I did a little ink blending with my Distress Ink Oxides. I started by putting a piece of painters tape on two sides of my paper and one about a quarter of the way up my card. Then I inked up the paper above the tape with my Broken China Distress Ink Oxide. I started in a little heavy and then gradually softened my touch as I worked my way towards the middle of the card. Once I was satisfied with the blue, I carefully removed my tape that was in the middle of the card and added it over I’d just been with the blue. I used some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink Oxide and repeated the same steps. 
Once I was happy with the blending, I carefully removed all the tape. I came out with this beautiful soft background on one side of my card which is exactly what  I was going for.
My bear I colored up in copics marker,s cut it out with my Scan N Cut and used some foam squares to add it to my card. I didn’t really want to add much more so I just stamped this super sweet sentiment next to my bear. I also used some clouds from Jaded Blossom to put off in the corner just to break up all that white.

Forest Background Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

I’m trying to participate in some of the challenges going on over in the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps facebook group. This one is for Challenge #5 which is to use a new set plus buttons. I also watched Marilyn’s video using the Forest background set and tried my hand at it. I’m very happy with the results!! I will admit, I was slightly intimidated at first when I got this stamped but once you break it down section by section it went really quick and easy.
