Inspirational Wednesday: Coffee and Chocolate with a Holiday Twist!

        Hello Krafty Friends!

It's INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY,
the day we provide you with a bit of extra krafty inspiration
to help you get creative with your krafty stamps!

 
Hi everyone, It's Krafty girl Melanie here and this week we are featuring the fabulous Coffee and Chocolate, which you'll find on sale at 40% off all week!



Since we are into the festive season, I decided to use this great set to make a fun coffee themed Christmas card perfect for your favourite caffeine loving friends and family. Inspired by all the holiday cups from the various coffee shops, I paper pieced both the cups and the sleeves with some patterned paper. I added some shading with a coloured pencil. The sentiment is from our Perfect Poinsettias stamp set. All paper edged were inked with Marvelous Mocha ink. Finally, I added a few Krafty Dots and a wooden snowflake as a finishing touch.

Make sure you head to the shop and add Coffee and Chocolate to your cart while it's 40% off!!

As far as the background I have used a piece of watercolor paper which I have cut to size with a wonky stitch die . Then with the new pawprints 2 stencil and some paste I have added the pawprints.

Once dry I have sprinkled some teal pigment colorzz

Inspirational Wednesday - Solid Holiday!

       Hello Krafty Friends!

It's INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY,
the day we provide you with a bit of extra krafty inspiration
to help you get creative with your krafty stamps!

 
Hi everyone, It's Krafty girl Patti here and this week we are featuring the fabulous Solid Holiday, which you'll find on sale at 40% off all week!



I have been working on some holiday gift tags made out of wood ornaments, and I thought Solid Holiday had some simple but effective images to add to the middle of the tags! 

First tag was created using the Wishing you a Merry and Bright Holiday. 



I started by covering the wood tags in teal stencil butter, I then simply heat embossed the sentiment in white, and added Nuvo Drops.

My Second tag was a bit difficult to photograph due to the shimmer and shine. 

I used the stag from this set. 

I started by inking the background in Kraftin Kimmie Hybrid Reinker- Lavish Lilac (which is currently on sale!).

I added a bit of a silver glimmer paste over top of the Lavish Lilac. This did change the hue a bit, but made the ornament so shimmery. 

I then heat embossed the stag in silver embossing powder, and added Nuvo drops. 

I love that these tags are a fun way to create with some Kraftin Kimmie products and simple dollar store wood tags. 

On December 12th I will be showing live how I stain the tags with Kraftin Kimmie ink refills, and alcohol ink to customize it to any colour you may have in your stash! 

The photos don't really do these tags justice, but I promise they will be loads of fun to learn! 


Make sure you head to the shop and add Solid Holiday to your cart while it's 40% off!!
