Je T'aime: Layer Stamping with Hero Arts



Hi everyone and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I have a fun card to share today using the newly released Layering Croissant stamp set and coordinating dies.  Here's my card:






I used all Stampin Up products to create the card.  For the croissant, I used Peekaboo pink ink, Pumpkin Pie, and Tangerine Tango.  For the blueberries, I used Marina Mist and Island Indigo.  For the strawberries, I used Real Red and Rose Red ink and for the raspberries, I used Blushing Bride and Rose Red.  I used the new hearts embossing folder and ran that through my Big Shot with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then adhered everything to Whisper White card base using dimensionals.  I also added lots of Glossy Accents to the fruit.  What do you think?


Well, that's it for me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.


Huge Hugs,


Christine

MFT and Watercoloring




















Hi everyone!!!  I have a super cute card to share with you today using the adorable Space Explorer stamp set from MFT and the Coordinating Dies.  I colored the cute astronaut, space ship, planets, and the moon with copic markers.  I then created my background with Stampin' Up! inks and watercolor paper.  I used some white acrylic paint to splatter on the background to look like stars.  If you are interested in any of the Stampin' Up proudcts, I used, feel free to visit my store HERE.  This technique was so much fun.  I also used my Wink of Stella glitter pen and some Glossy Accents to create some interest.  I used Stampin' Up white embossing powder on the sentiment and then cut the ends to give it a banner type look.  I also used some Stampin' Up silver thread behind the sentiment panel for some interest.  I popped everything up with Stampin' Up dimensionals.  What do you think? 


Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Until next time :)

Bonjour - Revamping my Blog!!!



Hi everyone!  Wow, it's been a long time, hasn't it?!?! :)  I have been busy crafting.  I started a Stampin' Up! blog, but have really been missing using other products so I decided to revamp this here old blog :)  I wanted to share this card with you today.  The stamps I used are from a brand new Oooh La La stamp set and matching dies from Hero Arts.  I used  Melon Mambo and basic black cardstock to create the card.  I ran the Melon Mambo cardstock through my Big Shot using Stampin' Up's large polka dot embossing folder.  The gold glitter paper is also from Stampin' Up.  I heat embossed the sentiment using Stampin' Up's white embossing powder.  I colored all the images with my copic markers (pinks: R81, 83, 85; blues: BG01, 05, 07).  The rhinestones are from Stampin' Up.  It's hard to see in the picture, but I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen all over the shirt and beret.  This card is super simple, but was so fun to make.  I hope you love it! :)  Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon! :)

Hi everyone and Happy Sunday!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  We're so excited! It’s our JULY RELEASE Day at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! And we’re celebrating with a KRAFTY HOP!! So grab yourself a cuppa joe, ...sit back and be prepared for some krafty eye kandy! We're going to inspire your creations with our fun, new rubber stamps!

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of amazing creations featuring new stamp sets from all of our artists for our July release! We know these new stamps will inspire you to make your own fabulous creations! First off, we shared a gorgeous set of SWEET SUMMER SENTIMENTS by artist, Becky Pearce! Then we had TWO new sets from artist, Annie Rodriguez called BECKY BUBBLES and COFFEE & FRIENDS! Also we have an awesome new girly girl set from artist Emilie Goulet called PRETTY AS A PRINCESS! Plus a sweet new BABY set from Cheryl Grant called WELCOME TO THE WORLD!

You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our July Krafty Hop! When you’re done hoppin' be sure to head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop, because ALL the new rubber stamp sets are NOW available!! And don't forget...if you NEED it all, we have a Gimme Kimmies Kit which features ALL the new July stamps at a discount!! But only for a limited time!

Here's my card for today's hop:


I just had to ink up this brand new image from artist Annie Rodriguez.  She's called Becky Bubbles and she was part of the most recent card kit, but if you missed out on that, you can now buy the stamp set.  I of course colored this image with copics.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E53, E25, E29
Pinks: RV10, R81, R83, R85, R89
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Yellow/Gold: Y35, Y38, E18

I added lots of Glossy Accents to the bubbles and then poured fine Martha Stewart glitter over it.  This creates a great effect, it looks glossy, but also sparkly.  Love it.  My DP is from MME.  I added some pearls and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The die cuts were made using a Memory Box die.  The sentiment comes with the set.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Now let's celebrate with our NEW RELEASE and get hoppin' and shoppin'!!
