KKS Challenge #139 Summer Themed

Hey there Krafters. This week's Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge is to make a Summer Themed card. So I had this image of Arianna coloured from a long, long time ago. I added a bit more shading to her and then carefully trimmed her out and I added some pop dots to her and the sea horses, added a bit of ribbon and pearls and voila.
I love teal but I rarely pair it up with orange... I'm going to have to do this more often, I really like the combo together. 

Anyhoo, to See more of this week's Summer Themed cards, pop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie's challenge blog and also the frugal friday specials are also up on the KKS store page.

Day four of KKS sneak peaks & a challenge...

Today at Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps we are showing you what our fabuolus Annie has designs for us, and it's also challenge day. So first off the theme is old Hollywood and the challenge is Lots of Dots.

So I used Debbie and some paper from DCWV Black Currant. (I think that's what it's called). Really great patterns, some metallic prints and rich colours so I thought it would really suit this image.

I coloured her using my copics and it may be hard to see but I added some sparkle and glaze for a bit of shimmer. The flower I made using a Sizzix die cut then I embossed it using my swiss dots embossing folder and then I sprayed some tattered angels glitter mist onto it. Tricky to catch them glitter in photograph, but  I took a closer pic and I think it's a bit more noticeable. The beautiful brad is from Spare Parts the Paper Studio,  I had scooped up from Hobby Lobby. Perfect finishing touch for Debbie.

If you'd like to play along with this week's challenge or to have the chance to win some new rubber head over to the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge Blog

Thanks for stopping by and we'll see you back tomorrow for the official release!!!

Day Three of KKS Sneak Peaks

Hi there and welcome back to day three of Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps sneak peaks. Today we are featuring what our very talented Emilie has created for us, again sticking with the Birthday theme we have a set of Birthday Buddies. This set comes with three images and five sentiments.

Here is Birthday boy...

I used some papers that I think came from a Celebration DCWV slab, paper pieced his overalls and his party hat and coloured the rest with my copics. Added a circle in the background made with my spellbinders and then finished it off with a sentiment that I made look like a pendant.

To see more from this set and a chance to win some, please head over to our challenge blog to visit the rest of the Krafty Gals and be sure to leave them some love for your chance to win. :)

Day two of KKS sneak peaks

Welcome back for day two of Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps sneak peaks. Today were showing you what's new with Lulu. Summer's around are house are busy busy with birthdays. So these stamps are perfect for cards and layouts. So I decided to do a layout, but no pics printed off just yet. But I'll definitely be filling in the spots with pics from my youngest daughter's party that we just had last weekend.

So here we go, Birthday Lulu :)

Lots of pics to see. First one of the of the double page spread. A little tricky to get a good pic, that's why I took so many. lol

I had bought this slab a long time ago from Walmart because I loved all the shades and patterns in it. First time using in a layout, and it's perfect for a Birthday layout.

I also incorporated some of the newest Birthday Trinkets in the layout.
And here's some pics of them all close up.

Again to see more sneak peaks of Lulu just head on over to the KKS challenge blog to see what some of the other Krafty gals created, and be sure to leave them some may be a lucky winner of these newest Lulu's.
