Merry Christ-Moose! – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps

Christmas is quickly approaching, and I have quite a few Christmas cards to share! Today’s card features the Kraftin’ Kimmie Moosel-toe! Stamp set.

To create the background of this card, I masked off a plaid pattern using basic sticky notes (always a handy tool to have in your craft space!) and ink-blended using Candied Apple and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides. I also splattered the background using Liquitex Iridescent Bright Gold Acrylic Ink.

Once I had stamped my image (and a sentiment), I used the following Copics to colour the image:

  • Browns: E11, E15, E18, E29, E33, E37, E49
  • Reds: R08, R14, R27
  • Greens: G07, G24, G28
  • Yellows: Y02, Y06, Y11
  • Blacks: 110

To finish off my card, I used Bearly Art Glue to adhere my image to the background as well as add a mat of red cardstock to match the colours of the card.

Thanks for reading. Catch ya next time!

Simple Winter Scene – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps

This post contains affiliate links that are of no extra cost to you. Using my affiliate links simply helps me to keep doing what I love – thank you!

Hello everyone, and happy November! While I love Halloween and the month of October, the first of November (for me, at least) is the start of the Holiday season, which also means the start of making lots of Christmas cards!

To kick off the Holiday season, I’m having some fun with the adorable Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Mooseltoe Stamp Set.

I first stamped an image and sentiment and coloured the image using the following Copics:

  • Blues: B32, B34, B37
  • Browns: E11, E15, E18, E29, E33, E37, E49
  • Greys: C1, C3, C5
  • Blacks: 110

Once coloured, I created the background by masking a square on my card panel and ink-blended a blue sky using Salty Ocean Distress Oxide. To turn my sky into a snowy, winter scene, I splattered with water and white acrylic paint.

To attach my image and sentiment, I used Bearly Art Glue.

Thanks for reading. Catch ya next!

Creating a Scene Using Alcohol Markers! – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps

Hi friends! For today’s card, I am trying something new… creating a one layered card using masking! I’ve always been a little intimidated by masking but decided to give it a shot and let’s just say it won’t be my last time doing it!

After having stamped my images from the Love Bugs stamp set from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, I used Squeezed Lemon, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade to create a glowing sunset using the Scene Maker stencil and mask from Simon Hurley Create.

Once I had created a sunset, I used the following Ohuhu alcohol markers to create a scene for the bugs:

Lady Bugs: NG06, CG070, CG050, R8, R2, R1

Flower: E310, Y12, E170, Y2, Y1, Y3, GY42, G240

Hills: GY173, GY6, G220, G240, GY42, G7, GG020

Sky: B220, B260, B120, Y030, YR030

After colouring, I stamped a sentiment from the Love Bugs stamp set onto the sun. To complete the card, I used tape runner to attach the finished card to a larger panel of black cardstock and then to an A2 card base.

Thanks for reading. Catch ya next time!
