We have super exciting news to share with you today! Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps has been working on something top secret for the last few months and it's finally time to share! 
Today we are introducing you to KRAFTY KOLOURS INKS by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - a brand new product to the KKS line... Krafty Kolours INKS




These beauties are acid-free, archival and non fading! 

This ink dries almost instantly on paper and non-porous surfaces and requires a heat set on glossy surfaces and fabric :)
- They have a raised felt pad that let you stamp any size stamp! 
- They give a crisp, bright, non-bleeding impression!
- They come in full size pads, mini cubes and ink refills! 

With these inks, you can directly sponge, stencil, watercolour, you can do all sorts of techniques with them... AND they are safe to use with pencils and alcohol markers!!

Today we are having a big Launch Party over on the Krafty Friends Facebook page with the Krafty Girls and Special Krafty Guests sharing information about the new products, sharing tons of new projects, live videos, youtube videos, we're doing giveaways, challenges and lots more!!

I used the new inks with my fave alcohol markers on two cards:


Stamp: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Dino-Mite Pals
Ink: Krafty Kolours Wicked Black
Colouring: Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card
DPs: MFT
Dies: MFT and Avery Elle

I stamped my Dino using the new Wicked Black Ink Pad, which gave a very crisp image! I then coloured it in Copics and used MFT and Avery Elle Dies.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #72


Hello everyone! Today is the start of a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps and we have an easy one for you - ANYTHING GOES! As always, you can win a Paperbabe Stamps Gift worth up to £20! 

I've been in bujo mode... well I decided to start a bullet journal, we'll see how I stick to that but maybe I'll get better at organizing my time ;) I have made my monthly page for May using Paperbabe Stamps super cute animals from the Whimsical Woodland Sets:


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Whimsical Woodland Sets and Butterfly Pieridae
Doodling: Copic multiliners

First I wrote the numbers, days and May word then I created my scene. I stamped a rabbit from Whimsical Woodland Set 3, 2 birds, a mushroom and the big butterfly from Set 4, and used the branch from Set 2. I also added 2 little butterflies from the Butterfly Pieridae set. The rest (flowers, grass, stems, leaves, frame) is doodling, done in different Copic multiliners. 


It was great fun to do! 

For more inspiration, please visit my teamies HERE! Hope you will join us too! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Music in Copics and more


Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a Copic make. I thought I would make a CAS card coloured in Copics and show how to enhance your Copic colouring by adding details to it using other media. 

The image I'm using is called Grooving Jasmine by Make it Crafty.


I first cropped my image in MS Word and instead of using my regular Copic paper, printed it on Canson Montval to be able to watercolour too and use other media. Please note, the watercolour paper will not react the same way Copic paper does, the ink may bleed more, the blending be less efficient, the colours may be darker too - it will all depend on the watercolour paper you choose to use. 
I coloured Grooving Jasmine completely, using the following Copics:

Skin: E000, 00, 11, 13, RV02
Hair: 100, BV04, C7, 9
Purple: V09, 15, 17
Pink: RV02, 04, T3
Blue: B95, 97, 99
Gold: Y11, 26


I then thought I would make a simple watercolour background matching my Copic colours, so I used pink and purple Zig watercolour pens. 


I then went back to work on my image using a bit of Polychromo pencils to add a bit of depth, so I mostly added black to the purple clothes and hair, and purple to her skin. I also added some white highlights with the very thin brush of my Copic Opaque White paint. I doodled a few notes in white gel pen too. 

Image in Copics

Image with added details


And lastly, to really make my image pop, I used a Make it Crafty Chipboard frame. I coloured it using Posca pens and covered the black and pink parts in stickles. I aslo added white dots to my background using a Molotow Paint Marker and changed the colour of my notes too.


That's all from me today! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
Delphine xx

I simply stamped my sentiment on Arches Paper and built my image around it. I drew a candle in Pigma Micron, taking inspiration from Joanne Fink's work which I love. I then watercoloured everything using wtc pens and added details in gel pens.

Paperbabe Stamps Blog Challenge Reminder



Hello everyone! A post today to remind you there is still time to join our SPRING Challenge at Paperbabe Stamps! You have 3 days left to enter HERE

For my spring make, I used my Whimsical Woodland sets to create a sweet spring scene:


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Whimsical Woodland Set 4 (bird) and Set 3 (hedgehog and bunny)
Colouring: Zig and Ecoline markers on Wtc Tile, gel pens and Stabilo, acrylic ink

I used a Watercolour Tile to test it and stamped the bunny and hedgehog from my Whimsical Woodland Set 3 and a bird from the Whimsical Woodland Set 4. I then created a background in watercolour using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and Ecoline Markers - tricky with this paper since the paper needs to be wet before adding marker or the lines won't go... and the paper does not take much water. I then added details in Stabilo 68, Pigma Micron and Gel Pens. 

We hope you can join us HERE! Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,
Delphine xx

Inspirational Wednesday


Hello everyone! It's Inspirational Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and my turn to share a card with you! For my make, I chose to use a very summery image, one of the fab girls from the Sandy Toes set which I love. I decided to make a one layer card (not unusual for me ;)) but did a doodled background for a change :)


Stamp: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Sandy Toes
Colouring: Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card
Other: Copic multiliners, Sakura and Pentel gel pens, Staedler Triplus, Stabilo 68

I coloured everything using Copics then added details using Copic multiliners and other pens on top of my Copic colouring. This doodled background is inspired by Joanne Fink's work which I'm a great fan of! 

Hope you like my different make for today! Thank you very much for your visit, have a fantastic dday! Hugs,
