Kraftin Kimmie Sneak Peek Day Three! - Berry Sweet

May Krafty Peeks...Day THREE! Berry Sweet....plus a Challenge!
Welcome back to our third and FINAL day of May Krafty Peeks!


Today we have another fantastic stamp set from our
amazing artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen!
It's called BERRY SWEET!


This delicious set has so many possibilities!! It features lined images and solid images for inky stamping! You could create lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit....red raspberries, black raspberries...such fruity fun! Plus there are so many fun coordinating sentiments!

I created two cards for you today:


For the first one I stamped the lemons on watercolor cardstock, embossed with white and then created a spray with Yummy Yellow reinker and water.




I sprayed a lot of yummy yellow for a heavy inky look.


For the second card I did the same thing, except that I used the new Pink Pizzazz reinker to make the raspberry spray and then used a green copic to color the stems.


The Pink Pizzazz spray.


I also added pink pizzazz reinker to texture paste and then pushed through the polka-dot stencil.  I then cut some circles to add as embelishments to my card.  Remember, you don't have to use the entire stencil. I finished off both cards with the new Fruity dots.  I love the bright colors in these new dots!

Of course, today is also Challenge Day and as always, during release week the theme is Anything Goes! So create a card, scrapbook page, altered item.....with a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp! Use any sketch, design, colour scheme you want!

Kraftin Kimmie Inspirational Wednesday - Unicorns & Rainbows

Hello krafty friends!  
Today is INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY -
the day we provide you with a bit of extra
crafty inspiration to help you get creative
with your krafty stamps!

I'm up on the Kraftin Kimmie blog today and I used the adorable Unicorns & Rainbows set.


I started out by making my own sprays with Kraftin Kimmie reinkers.  I used distilled water in the mini mister and then added a long squirt of Raspberry Rose, Charming Chartreuse and lastly Mermaid Melody.


I held the spray bottle about 12 inches away and sprayed my three colors.  I sprayed on Ranger Glossy finish paper.

I then cut out a panel for my card and matted it on black cardstock.  I then added cloud and rainbow die cuts to the card.

I colored the Unicorns with Copics:
Pink: RV29, RV25, RV23 and RV21
Lime: YG09, YG07, YG05 and YG03
Blue: BG09, BG07. BG05 and BG02
Gold: E08, YR24 and YR23
Grey: W3, W1 and W00 and T3, T1 and blender

I stamped the sentiment directly on the ink spritzed panel.

Remember to use the reinkers for more than just re-inking the pads!!!
