Kraftin' Kimmie July Release - Day 2


Welcome to Day TWO of our July Krafty Peeks
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
It's an amazing new STRONG LADIES stamp set
by artist Emilie Goulet!
Introducing.....FRIENDS TO THE FINISH!

This sassy set features three tough chicks plus SEVEN super cool sentiments! The perfect set for all those amazing women in your life!


I coloured up this awesome sassy image using my Copic markers then cut out the image using my Scan n' Cut. I created the background  by smooshing some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink...I love how it looks like a wine spill. To finish off my card, I created a simple card layout using funky pattern papers and adding a heat embossed sentiment and a splash of sequins.

Stamp AnnieThing - Red, White and Blue

Hi Friends! 
Today I am kicking off theme week over at Stamp AnnieThing with the challenge for this month which is Red, White, and Blue. 


I coloured up "Tess - Rock On" using my Copic markers, being sure to keep my colour pallete small - pretty much limiting it to Red, White and Blue. I created a fun background using texture paste with a brick stencil and ink blended over it using Distress Oxide inks. I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder on a small strip of black caardstock and finished off my card by added a few black Nuvo Drops.

I hope you like my card creation and be sure to take part in this months Red, White and Blue challenge.

Until Next Time - Stephen

Creating a card with limited Colour Pallet

Hi Friends! 
I am popping by to share another card creation using Stamp AnnieThing stamps. If you haven't noticed, I have been really into clean and simple cards lately. I really love the aesthetic of a card with lots of white space and a limited colour pallet...I think its not only pleasing to the eye but also lets the image really pop. 


This card was really fast and fun to put together and is also the perfect card to send off to a friend if you want to send a quick note. 

I wanted to keep the colour pallet small, so I only used Oranges, Yellows, and Reds. For an extra pop of colour and to help bring your attention to the stamped image, I added a nice rich blue colour. 

The background was created by doing simple ink blending using Distress Oxides in the colours of - Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, and Barn Door. I then splatted some water on it to get the water droplet effect. I cut the bottom on a diagonal for some visual interest and then matted it on the same white cardstock as my card base.

For the image, I coloured up the super cute Lorraine - Sunshine using the following Copic markers

Copics:
Skin - E04, E11, E21, E00, E50, R20
Hair - T9, T6, T3
Swimsuit - B24, B26, B29
Floatie - Y15, Y17, YR16, YR18

I hope you liked my card creation for today!
Until next time - Stephen

Stamp AnnieThing - Burst Your Bubble

Hi Friends! Its my day to post on the Stamp AnnieThing blog and today I am sharing a quick and simple card anyone can whip up in no time. Its especially great to give to a friend that needs come encouragement.

I used Sofia - Burst Your Bubble and coloured her using Copic markers

Copics
Skin - E04, E11, E21, E00, R20
Hair - T9, T7, T5, T3
Dress - RV25, RV23, RV21, BG34, BG11


I designed a simple card layout that really puts the spotlight on your colouring. I created this by using both stitched rectangle and circle dies, some pattern paper, as well as a few gold sequins. I did add some white gel pen to my coloured image for an added touch of detail.

I hope you like my card creation for today! 

Until next time - Stephen
