Skrappy Challenge – Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Welcome back to another month of Skrappy Fun

We challenge YOU to make Anything BUT a Card!!!

For this challenge you can make anything you wanna….except a card! So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags, boxes…pretty much anything that includes a krafty stamp!!

My project today is creating this adorable little gift box. The end of the school year is rolling in and these make great gifts for teachers. You can tuck little pieces of candy inside for a special treat! 

I used the Tiny Gift Box die from Lawn Fawn and die cut it from a piece of Key Lime cardstock. 

Before creasing my scored lines, I’m going to randomly stamp leaves all around using the Beautiful Blooms stamp set and Lovely Lagoon Ink from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.

To adhere the box together I’m using some Scor-tape. It has a nice strong hold and I won’t worry about my box coming apart. Soft, simple and this ink looks great on the Key Lime cardstock.

You have all month long to play AND you can enter as many times as you like! Just make sure to include a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp and make sure it’s a NEW creation! As soon as we have at least five entries, we’ll be giving away a PRIZE!!! yep! One lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!
You have until Tuesday, June 26th at midnight EST!

Check out some incredible inspiration from the Krafty Design Team below, then join us for all the fun!!


Beautiful Flowers – Split Coloring/Stamping – SSS

Welcome everyone! I have TWO cards to share with you today. I’m using this gorgeous stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Beautiful Flowers by doing some split coloring/stamping.  Be sure to keep reading to view my video I’ve included.
This stamp set was part of the June 2018 card kit of the month. Unfortunately this kit is sold out but you can sign up for the next kit so you don’t miss out. You can also purchase this stamp separately as well which I’ll provide links to down below. 
Using my Misti tool, I’m going to stamp my floral image on the bottom half of a piece of white cardstock. I’m using Neenah Solar white 80lb cardstock measured at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2 and I’m stamping in Simon Says Stamp Black Ink which is copic safe. I’ll clean off my stamp, line up a piece of Sunflower cardstock in the same spot and stamp the floral image again except in Simon Says Stamp Clear Ink. Then heat emboss with clear embossing powder. 
Keeping the cardstock in the same spot will ensure the floral image is stamped exactly the same on each piece. 
Next, I’ll color in my floral image using my copic markers. I’m following along the artist drawn lines for most of my coloring. 
I’m going to trim both pieces of cardstock down to give me 3″ top panel.
Next, I’ll stamp a sentiment from the Kind Flowers stamp set onto black cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder. 
Then I can trim this down to about 1/4″ strip. To assemble the card, I’m going to use an A2 size notecard for both. I’ll start by adding my bottom panel to the bottom of the card first. Then my black sentiment strip. I’m not worried about overhang because I can trim those off later. 
Now I can add my top panel to each card. I’ll use my Tonic trimmer to trim off the excess cardstock. 
Now, typically the image is supposed to look continuous. If you look closely at the card with the yellow panel on the bottom, I accidentally attached my floral piece the wrong way. I didn’t notice this until I was taking pictures of my card. But honestly, did you notice if I hadn’t told you? lol … 
I finished off both card by adding the Painted Thanks die cut from Silver Glitter cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Tacky Glue. Regardless of my oops – I love how both cards turned out. I hope you’ll give this a try and learn from my mistakes.

You are Mermazing – Neat & Tangled

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I snuck in some crafty time between trips to the pool outside. I was able to finally play with this beautiful Mermazing stamp set from Neat & Tangled.
I stamped my image onto Neenah white cardstock with a copic friendly ink. Then colored with copic markers. I fussy cut this out because I forgot to buy the coordinating die which I would much rather have! 
I also stamped out the banner sentiment onto Peacock Cardstock with clear ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The other part of this sentiment is stamped on Black Cardstock with clear ink and also heat embossed with white embossing powder.
For the background, I used a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I ink blended Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, and a light hand of Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink. Then I used the Rice Paddies stencil and added Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste. 
I absolutely love how this came out!

Critter Concert – Reveal Wheel

Happy Saturday! I’m sharing another Reveal Wheel card I made from the May Lawn Fawn Release. This was actually the first one I made. 
I used some Perfectly Plaid paper for the front of my card and Sunflower cardstock for the bottom portion to create a “floor” for my critters. 
I love this cute little speech bubble to add my sentiments. 
Before attaching the top panel to my card, I added a trail of music notes.
I love all these cute little sentiments.
My critters are stamped onto Neenah white cardstock with copic friendly ink. Then I colored with copic markers and diecut out using the coordinating dies. I know dies can be pricey but I highly recommend getting them with these sets. They cut out everything on the die. Sometimes the images can get really small and the coordinating die just saves so much time. Plus they create this nice rounded edge around your images for a great finished look. 
These reveal wheels are just way too much fu to make. I plan on making some for teachers because it’s something completely different and lots of fun! 
I apologize I don’t have my copic colors listed for you. This was my practice card and didn’t write everything down but I hope this inspired you to check out the Reveal Wheel if you haven’t already.
