I created a spooky background on the Gel Press with Charming Chartreuse, Goblin Green, Purple Petunia and Wicked Black Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.

I then stamped the Spooky Silhouettes tree and cat stamp. I added a die cut border and I added yellow stickles to create a moon and purple stickles around the outside edge of the background. I added the ghost button and "spooky eyes" to the tree. I finished it off with Krafty dots.

September Skrappy Challenge!

September Skrappy Challenge!

Hidee ho, good stampers!!! Welcome back to another month of Skrappy Fun at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!
We challenge YOU to make Anything BUT a Card!!!
For this challenge you can make anything you wanna....except a card! So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags, boxes...pretty much anything that includes a krafty stamp!!

Just make sure to include a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and make sure it's a NEW creation! As soon as we have at least five people playing, we'll be giving away a PRIZE!!! yep! One lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

You have a whole month to play along until Monday, September 23rd at midnight EST!

Life is a Joy


I created my own background with Ruby Red and Charming Chartreuse reinkers.

I dropped the ruby red on Yupo paper sprayed with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol and then sprayed it with air until I liked the look.


I then repeated the same technique with the Charming Chartreuse until I like the blending. Be careful where the colors blend as these are not alcohol ink and will blend together. I didn't want any muddy colors, so I just went slow.

I then cut my tag out of the background and matted it on red cardstock. I then attached the super kit couple from Life is a Joy. I stamped the sentiment directly on the Yupo tag.

The couple was colored with Copics:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00 and E000
Brown Hair: E29, E25 and E21
Blond Hair: E18, E15, YR23 and Y21
Green: G28, G24, G21 and YG03
Red: R59, R29 and R22
Shoes: W3 and W1
Chicks: Y17, Y15 and Y11
Bench: E79, E77, E74 and E71

Also be sure to share your creations on the Krafty Friends facebook page because we LOVE to see your stuff!
