Happy Birthday Chicks


Hi There!

Sharing a birthday card that I made using the music and cute chicks from Your Next Stamp Set – Music Chicks.

Including a close-up.

Stamped images using MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to transfer images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Images were then coloured with Copic Markers. Background was done using Spectrum Noir Markers and then grass was added in using Prismacolor Premier Pencils.

Musical sentiment and notes were stamped using (MISTI), Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then heat embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Background Paper: Echo Parks Paper Co. – Birthday Wishes by Alisha Gordon – 6″ x 6″ Paper Pads

Die Cut – Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214). I used the same die for the small die cut as well. I just adjusted the die to fit the size of the sentiment by putting it through the Cuttlebug twice.

I’ve added a close-up for you to see the image bigger.

This was coloured up using the image from Di’s Digi Stamps – Cute as Cupcake Mice, instructions from Kit and Clowder’s April 2018 Markers monthly class and Copic markers.

Next I added in the sentiment from Stampendous – Mice Birthday – CS075-Stamps.

Beautiful Blooms


Hi There! Here is the card that I made with the new Kraftin’ Kimmie – Beautiful Blooms set.

 

I also used the new Kraftin’ Kimmie Purple Pansy and Kraftin’ Kimmie Lovely Lagoon inks to acentuate the veins in the leaves and petals in the flowers. Also around the borders of the card and die cut. Sentiment is from Kraftin’ Kimmiee – Tweetie Pies.

Background Paper: K&C Company – Susan Winget Specialty Paper – SW Botanical. Inked around card with Kraftin’ Kimmie Lovely Lagoon ink.

Die Cuts: Creative Expression – Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Ovals

Used my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to stamp all of the images.

Centre flower was stamped with Versamark ink and then embossed with Adirondack Eggplant Embossing Powder.

Top and bottom flowers added in Kraftin’ Kimmie Purple Pansy in spots onto Momenta – Cardstock, then stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Next I inked over the entire flowers with Kraftin’ Kimmie Purple Pansy!

For all of the leaves and stems, stamped the images onto Momenta – Cardstock, then stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Next I inked over the entire flowers with Kraftin’ Kimmie Purple Pansy! All of the leaves were inked over with Kraftin’ Kimmie Lovely Lagoon. Just loved how the veins in the leaves turned out once I did that.

For the shaker portion, I used Judi-Kins Embossable Window Plastic 4.25 x 5.5 inches and a little bit of Martha Stewart Sour Apple, Limeade Glitter and Craftin Desert Diva’s Skyfall sequence.

Magical Friends


Hi There!

I had a chance to work with the new Kraftin’ Kimmie – Magical Friends stamps. It was so much fun and I hope you love my creation.

I know that we all would love a cleaning fairy, so I used the sentiment from Kraftin’ Kimmie – Lorretta Laundry stamp set on the front.

I also thought the little Gnome and squirrel on the stump from the Kraftin’ Kimmie – Whimsical Gnomes stamp set fit well with the little scene that I was trying to create.

 

If you look closely at the paper in the background, you will also see some little fairies playing in the flowers.

Of course, I couldn’t resist putting in this little fairy playing with her kitty on the inside, which is also part of the new Kraftin’ Kimmie Magical Friends stamps set.

Here is a close-up:

She has no intention of doing any housework at all! LOL! Instead she is enjoying her day!!! Sentiments surrounding the image are from the new Kraftin’ Kimmie – Magical Friends stamps set.

Birthday wishes are from Kraftin’ Kimmie – Kick Assy Birthday stamp set.

All images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my  MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool for precision stamping and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Then coloured in with Copic markers.

Sentiments were stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Edged around die cuts and main card with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint.

Background Paper: Unique Papercrafting Graphics 45 – Fairie Dust Collection.

Die Cuts: Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214); Spellbinders – Die D-Lites Conversation Bubble 3 Etched Dies
