Preview Day 3 – Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Welcome back to Day THREE
of our JULY Krafty Peeks at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Today is the final day of peeks and the release party is
THIS AFTERNOON at 1pm EST on Facebook!
Are you going to join in and help us
celebrate ALL the new sets?
Our last stamp set for this month is a
‘one of a kind’ stamp set from artist
Melissa Baker-Nguyen!
It’s called MANATEE PALS!

My images are stamped on Neenah Solar white cardstock with Wicked Black ink. Then I fussy cut my cute critters & images out with scissors.

For my background, I created some water using the Rice Paddies Stencil with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. I removed the stencil and lightly went over the area just to soften it up. I adore this color to make water! I then partially stamped the sentiment and added the die cut word friend from the Friend die from Simon Says Stamp. I layered my images to my card around the sentiment in the middle.

For a little added interest I added some Groovy Sequins around the card. I also added some Nuvo Shimmer and Tonic Glaze to my Friend die cut.

Copic Used
Manatee – W6-W5-W4-W3
Manatee Muzzle – C3-C2-C1
