Kraftin Kimmie Challenge inspiration!

  Good morning and welcome to our  

Monthly Saturday Challenge Mid Inspiration Post

We are back today with an inspirational post showcasing more ideas to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing!
We can't wait to see what you create!

This month the challenge themes for you are: 


You can choose any or all - whatever inspires you!

I chose to colour up this cutie from Kitty Kapers, as It’s the one year anniversary of my clinic cat’s passing. This card makes me smile as Bucket was always so mischievous like this kitty.

I also inked up the Cozy Check Stencil with Bashful Blush, and Cool Cantaloupe.

For the stitching prompt I chose to hand stitch a few areas on the panel with lilac metallic thread.

I kept the design of this one simple so that the stitching and kitty could be the stars of the show. 

Our Ink Of The Month, which will be on sale all month long, just happens to be a lovely shade of orange!! This month features the gorgeous Cool Canteloupe Ink Pad, Cube and Reinker! Grab it now to add to your collection.

I thought it would be too cute if I showed his photo of the time he visited the mountains in a polaroid frame. 

I combined pattern paper and a Gelli Print background made with the new Charming Chevron Stencil

I added some enamel dots, and some stickers for a more layered look. I love that I could give this card to one of my male family members!

Krafty Peeks Day 3: Dino-mite

       Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the April Release 

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

We are so excited to share a fabulous prehistoric dinosaur set 

by artist Neda Sadreddin



These awesome dinos are ready to party and send some sweet wishes out to their friends! 

I started by using the chevron stencil and my gelli plate to make a subtle background panel. 

I then randomly stamped the Dino’s over top the chevron design and coloured them in with Copics. 

I then added a pattern paper strip, some die cuts, and the sentiment. 

These Dino’s are so cute I couldn’t decide between using just one! 

Check out DINO-MITE in so many amazing creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs!  You'll also see the beautiful new stencils, CHARMING CHEVRON and ON THE GO along the way! 

Everything will be released after our LIVE Online Release Party TODAY!  All the fun takes place in the Krafty Friends facebook group beginning at 2 pm ET!  See you there!

April Krafty Peeks Day 2: Majestic Mountains!

     Welcome back to Day TWO of our April Krafty Peeks!

Are you excited about what you've seen so far!?  Are you ready for more?

I hope your answer was yes because we've got more fabulous fun for you today!

The stamp set we are 'peeking' for you today is from 

artist Michelle Houghton
 and it's called.....


This beautiful mountain background would be the perfect backdrop to create a scene for your images - or amazing alone with a sentiment!

 Check out MAJESTIC MOUNTAINS and our new stencils in so many awesome creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs!  

When I saw Michelle’s stamp set I immediately knew I wanted to make a card that could switch from night into day! 

Trying to figure out how to do this was a bit of a difficult task, but I’m happy to say I did finally figure it out! 

The mountains were coloured with Copics and liquid appliquƩ to add some snow.

I then added it to the front flap of the card with a frame to hide my edges.

On the back flap I inked up the day scene with our Krafty Scenery 4 Stencil, and the sun from the Krafty Scenery 3 Stencil.

I also stamped the sentiment. 

Then on a separate panel I made a night scene with Krafty Scenery 4 Stencil, and the Starburst Stencil

This panel slides up to reveal the day scene! 

You'll see more of our April goodies all week, and then everything will be released after our LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday at 2 pm ET in the Krafty Friends facebook group!

I’ll definitely be showing off more cards with the sketches this month, and did you know Kim is one of the sponsors for this challenge?

For this challenge you can make anything that strikes your fancy....except a card!
So design a new scrapbook page, bookmark, tag, altered item, planner page, art journal, ATC cards...whatever you like!

Here's some fabulous inspiration from our Design Team this month!

I created my first calendar page of the Year! (šŸ«¢ eep it’s only April!)

I featured the bugs from 
Love Bugs, and the little bee from our new Stamp of the month Bee Happy!

I loved how Kim used the stencils on her page, so I was inspired to use Lots of dots with Cool Cantaloupe, Yummy Yellow, and Raspberry Rose ink!
