Challenge #543 Use A Sketch!

 

Good morning and welcome to another
fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge


Are you ready for another fun and krafty challenge to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing?
We've got some fabulous ideas for you 
and can't wait to see what you create!

This week, krafty girl Karla is your hostess and her challenge theme for you is:

....Use A Sketch! - you get to choose the sketch!


Hello friends! 
 It's Karla here today with a fun challenge for you! I love starting with a sketch - I always find it takes me in different directions than I would have gone if I just sat down with my supplies. For today's card, I'm using the August Kraftin' Kimmie Sketch you can see below and I used  fun backgrounds I created with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Stencils.  

I coloured up the adorable NEW Be A Mermaid Stamps with Copic Markers and popped them up on foam dots over the background. 
kraftin' kimmie stamps, mermaids, cardmaking, mixed media, dina wakley gloss sprays, texture paste, stencils, copic markers, summer
You can see the Summer Sunbeams Stencil peeking out from the first layer, which I created with Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays and then embossed one of the sweet sentiments from the Be A Mermaid. (You can check out fun Sunbeam Stencil techniques in this video HERE!) Next I layered a watercoloured background that I created in this video HERE with the Nautical Netting Stencil and Distress Oxide Sprays. For the third layer I added part of a background created with the She Sells Seashells Stencil (try saying that 5 x's fast!) and Kraftin' Kimmie Inks. And for the bottom layer I took an inky background I had in colours that matched and stamped seashells from the Be A Mermaid Stamp Set with Sandy Shores Ink. I added in some pretty NEW Summer Krafty Dots and my card is finished!

Inspirational Wednesday - You're a Hoot!


Hello Krafty Friends!
It is INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY!
the day we provide you with a bit of extra krafty inspiration 
to help you get creative with your krafty stamps!



 Krafty girl Danielle C. here as your hostess this week!
Owls are my favorite birds, so the choice was not difficult for me! 
I played with:



and created a fun card with all three little owls! 
I used a peek a boo die cut to create a condo in a tree trunk;
the Woodgrain strencil was perfect to give the impression of bark, 
shades were given using Sandy shores, Marvelous Mocha and a very subtil coat of Totally Taupe. 
I used stickes all around the kraft paper.
My images were also  stamped with Totally Taupe, for the no line technique on the owls, 
on bristol velum and colored with polychromos.
Behind my owls I used the Beautiful Burlap stencil with Charming Chartreuse and the beautiful 
new ink Fresh Fields.
Some Krafty dots (Summer Krafty dots) in different sizes to give a home address to each condo!!!





Thank you for letting me share my work with you today!

....FOR A BABY!

Hello all - as I was thinking about my theme
this week it occurred to me that I have very
few baby cards on hand.  It seems like our circle of 
family and friends who are in the stage of 
life that involves new babies has been expanding
a lot over the past year. And...I'm guessing that we
may be seeing some more new babies in the 
next year as a side benefit of COVID (lol).  
Sooo...I'm getting a jump start on my baby card stash.  
My card features the WILD WORLD clear stamp set 
which is just perfect for new baby cards (and
so stinkin' CUTE too!).  You can pick it up 
in the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop this weekend
with a 20% off coupon - HINT...see below!   

Each and every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and you are welcome to enter as many times as you like.
These must be new creations and you are welcome to use any stamp, however, using Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and products will earn you double entries!

Inspirational Wednesday ~ Beach Blanket Bingo

Hello Krafty Friends!
It is INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY!
the day we provide you with a bit of extra krafty inspiration to help you get creative with your krafty stamps!


 It's Krafty Girl Allison here as your hostess this week!  Today we're featuring the summery "Beach Blanket Bingo" stamp set by Emilie Goulet.

Here is the interactive card I created using the totally cool surfin' bunny dude!

This interactive card is a magnet card. When you pull the tab, the little surfer saunters across the beach...



And as this bunny walks across the beach, he reveals another sentiment...


For the background of my card I used the fun "Krafty Scenery 3 Stencil" and lots of amazing KKS hybrid inks!



Thanks for letting me share with you today.  
If you want to add Beach Blanket Bingo to your collection, just hop on over to the KKS Shop and find it for 40% OFF this week! 

Happy Krafting!
