Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes + The Sketchy Challenge - A sketch

Hallo allemaal/ Hello Everybody,

Today i'm combing two challenge's in one post. It's saturday and that means a new challenge started over at our Kraftin' Kimmie Blog, and as most of you know because it's saturday we have a theme challenge. The theme of this weeks challenge is Anything Goes! So get creative with anything and surprise us with your lovely crafting projects!

Also on The Sketchy challenge there started a new challenge and this time we have a sketch challenge and we ask you to use the sketch provided!

Products used: Authenthic design papers, MFT stitched circle die, twine, pin, white and blue cardstock, i'm roses flowers, Marianne design die.

The base is a double square white card 14 x 14. I used some blue cardstock to mask the designpapers. I did that with the other parts aswell. I cut those into the shape they needed to be for the sketch. I made some bows with twine and glued a flower on top of it. 

I colored up the stamp cold noses by Kraftin' Kimmie and die cut it with a stitched cirkel die. I masked it on top of a blue circle. I added some flowers and leaves to finish of the card.

Have a nice day!

Greetz, Marieke

Kraftin' Kimmie - Inspirational Wednesday

Hallo allemaal / Hello Everybody,

Vandaag is het woensdag en hebben we op het Kraftin' Kimmie Blog een inspiratie post van een van de Kimmie girls en vandaag was het mijn beurt! Ik ging aan de slag met de super leuke Bessie Bus Stop! En mocht je hem nog willen hebben, wees er snel bij want op = op.

Gebruikte Producten: Die-Namics pierced banner staxx, Die- Namics stitched circle staxx, Sizzix die, Marianne design embossing folder, Copic Markers, MFT paperpad, Kraft, wit en turquoise cardstock.

De basis is een dubbele kraft cardstock van 11 x 13,5. Daarop een stuk wit cardstock met een strook designpapier en een strook turquoise cardstock. Uit kraft cardstock stanste ik de cirkel stans van Sizzix en uit turqouise, kraft en wit cardstock stanste ik verschillende maten cirkels. De grootste witte cirkel bewerkte ik met een embossing folder. Ik maakte een banner met de pieced banner die en heat emboste de tekst op de banner. Ik plakte alles op elkaar met gewone tape en 3-d tape.

Bessie Bus Stop stempelde ik en kleurde ik daarna in met mijn Copic Markers. Ik knipte en sneed haar op een wit randje na uit en plakte haar op het geheel met 3-d tape.

Gebruikte Copic Kleuren:
Schoenen en paraplu - W9, W7, W5, BG18, BG15, BG11, Y15

Hallo allemaal,

Vandaag een heerlijke dag gehad op de Art Specially en een hoop bekende mensen ontmoet super leuk! Ik maakte van de week nog een kaartje voor een collega van mijn moeder die met Pensioen mag met de schets van Bugaboo en dacht die moet ik dan nog wel even online zetten voor de tijd voorbij is.

Gebruikte producten: Dutch Doobadoo shape art mal (470.713.165), maja designpapers, Noor! design en Marianne Design stansen. Lint, twine bloemen en kraft en wit cardstock.

Ik gebruikte de drie buitenmaten van de mal en knipte deze op maat. Ik verwerkte verder het lint en de strook designpapier volgens de schets. Ook de bloemen het woord proficiat. De rest voegde ik toe.

Ik gebruikte de digitale stempel stella housekeeper en kleurde haar in met mijn Copic Markers.

Fijne dag allemaal!

Liefs, Marieke

I first made the layout of the card before i colored him up. Sometimes it works likes that, it seems there is a shift going on in my crafting were nowadays i first make the card before coloring the image. Although that might be depending on the image and what kind of cardstyle i'm making a card. After i made the card i colored op the dude and fussy cut him. I glued him onto the card with some 3-d tape.

Have a nice day!

Krafty Peeks day 2: What's up, dude?

Hallo Everybody,

Welcome to Day Two of our March Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

You asked for it, so we've got it! It's an amazing new TEEN BOYS stamp set by artist Emilie Goulet!

Introducing.....WHAT'S UP, DUDE?

Used products: Weather wood distress inkt, Striped paperpad by MFT, ranger stone stencil. Copic Markers and black cardstock.

Ok this was a tricky one i really wanted to make a card using graffiti letters. So i ended up looking for some and found a program which i could make my own name and then chose option on what lettertype. So i ended up using it and i then printed it onto some normal paper and held it to my window with a piece of neenah paper on top so i could take it over with a pencil. Before i did that i stamped the image.

I then first did half of the black parts of some letter and then colored in the rest of the letters. When i did that with all my letters i ended up highlighting it with a orange marker. To make it complete i used my white gelpen to ad some extra detail. I made the background with a stencil and some ink. 

Have a nice day!

Krafty Peeks day 1: Loretta Laundry

Hello all,

Welcome to Day ONE of our April release of 2018 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

We're kicking things off with a hilarious image and fabulous sentiment set! It's called LORETTA LAUNDRY!!!

This fabby stamp set comes with one large main image and three super sassy sentiments!!

Used Materials: Flowers, Dutch Doobadoo shape art mal (470.713.165), Noor! Design papers, pink and white cardstock and a pin.

I cut out the biggest three shapes from the shape art mal. I also made a rectangle from designpapers and some white cardstock. I glued everything together.

After everything was glued together i started to make my flower arrangements. One big one on the left and a smaller one with the sentiment inside a pin on the left side.

I colored up Loretta and made the background myself. I cut here and glued here on top of some pink and white cardstock.

Have a nice day everyone!

Greetz, Marieke
