Kraftin' Kimmie Skrappy Challenge


Hello everyone! We have a new Krafty Skrappy Challenge for you at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, this challenge is for ANYthing but a Kard! We challenge you to make ANYTHING BUT A CARD! So you can create anything you want as long as it's not a card! So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags boxes... pretty much anything that includes a krafty stamp! You have all month long to play and you can enter as many times as you like! Just make sure to use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and make sure it's a new creation!
As soon as we have at least five entries, we'll be giving away a PRIZE! One lucky krafter will win a $20 Gift Voucher to the krafty store!

Also be sure to also share your creations on our Krafty Friends FB page

I've decided to make a couple seasonal ATCs using my KKS stamps and Distress Oxide Inks. Today is Halloween Day after all ;)


Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Grateful Pumpkins and Spooky Silhouettes
Ink: Kraftin' Kimmie Wicked Black Hybrid Ink

To create my ATCs, I started with a background in Distress Oxides then stamped my images in Wicked Black Hybrid Ink. I really like how striking the images are in black against a coloured background. The first ATC with Grateful Pumpkins would be perfect for Thanksgiving and the second one is of course for today, using Spooky Silhouettes.

We hope you can play along! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Glimps DT: Christmas in Copics


Hello everyone! I'm back to share a Christmas Copic card I made for my Glimps DT post, featuring an adorable Santa called Babbo Pacchetto!

Since I love making CAS scene cards, I decided to create a background for my Santa. 


I created the mountain adding a bit of G20 and BV20 to avoid having a flat white mountain, then I drew a few trees in E70, YG03, 17, 67 and then coloured the sky using B00 and B02. I have kept things simple, but I will add a few details to the background at the end.


I then coloured the skin (E000, 00, 11, 71 and R20 for the cheeks) and white for my Santa (W0, 1, 3 for the clothes and C0, 1, 3 for the beard and eyebrows). It's always best to colour light parts before colouring dark parts to avoid dragging dark colours accidentally with your light markers. 


I then coloured the white of the snow using BG000, C1 and B60.


Next I continued with my Santa. The reds are C5, R35, 37, 39, the black is C5, 7, 9, and the present is Y11, 23, 26, YG95, 99.


Now to add a few extra details: green Copic multiliner on the trees and a bit of snow in acrylic paint, a few highlights too and some dots on the present in gel pen.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 11, 71, R20
Beard: C0, 1, 3
Red Clothes: C5, R35, 37, 39
White on Clothes: W0, 1, 3
Black: C5, 7, 9
Present: Y11, 23, 26, YG95, 99
Sky: B00, 02
Trees: E70, YG03, 17, 67
Mountain: BV20, G20
Snow: B60, BG000, C1

And here is the final card with a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sentiment and a bit of Distress Ink around the edges of the sky:


Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,

Beagle Baby Looooooove


Hello everyone! I'm sharing a very special card today, inspired by real life! People who know me a little know how much I love my baby beagles and I am extremely lucky to have had an image made by the fabulous Christy at Tiddly Inks, based on my second baby beagle who arrived home last month :) I can't tell you how blessed I feel!! Huge thanks again to you Christy!! 
So this is the image I'm using today - my Baby Beagle by Tiddly Inks!

I printed my image and die cut it with an MFT circle die, to then focus on the colouring.


I coloured the sky first, using B00 and B02. I added a cloud in BV20, C0 and C1 to avoid having a completely flat sky.


I then coloured my beagle with E30, 31, 34, 44 and 47 for the browns. I added shadows to the white colouring them in W00 first to see where I would place them and then W0, 1, 3.


Next I coloured the grass with my usual combo of G28, YG01, 03, 17 and 67.

So all the Copics I used are:
Sky: B00, 02
Grass: G28, YG01, 03, 17, 67
Beagle Puppy: E30, 31, 34, 44, 47, W00, 0, 1, 3


Now to add more depth, I added a few details to my image: birds in the sky with a Copic Multiliner, a bit of blue Distress Ink aroung the edges of my scene and I used Posca and gel pens to add blades of grass and dots for flowers.

I then mounted my image on another MFT die cut and on a piece of BoBunny DP. The sentiment was done using Make it Crafty Alpha Chipboard painted in white acrylic. 


Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Krafty Tips and Tuts - Airbrushed Scene with Masking


Hello everyone! I'm sharing a little tutorial today - a simple scene with masking and airbrushing!

For my character, I picked a cute sweetie from the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Halloween Lulu set, just rereleased as rubber. I also used the KKS Spooky Silhouettes set, a fabulous set to create Halloween scenes!


I stamped my character in Wicked Black Hybrid Ink on my Copic card and on a Post-It to mask her.


I then stamped a tree from the Spooky Silhouettes set three times. 


I then placed a mask to mimick a hill.


I airbrushed the sky RV23 and 66 starting from the bottom and then I started from the top with YR18 then YR04.


I used the other part of my mask to then cover the sky and create the hill. I used G29, YG03, 67. 


Next I coloured my sweetie in Copics and went back on the trees with a black Copic multiliner to make them really black.

Skin: E000, 00, 11
Hair: BV04, C7, 9, 10
Outfit: C5, 7, 9, 10, R35, 37, 39
Pumpkin: Y35, 38, YR04, 18 


And lastly, I coloured a tiny piece of paper in YG03 and stamped a Halloween sentiment from the Spooky Silhouettes set, and voilà! 

Hope you found this little tutorial helpful! Have a great day everyone! Hugs,
Delphine xx
