Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Saturday Sentiment Challenge

Hi Friends! 
I am honoured to be guest designing for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps all month long...I was so so excited when Kim asked me. 
I created a card for the first KKS Saturday Challenge of the year (Details about the Challenge and how you can enter below)
I kept my card design extremely simple as I wanted the focus to remain on the amazing image itself as I spent A LOT of time colouring it. The stamp set is called, "Cocoa Cozy" by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Be sure to check out the KKS store to see her amazing selection of stamps...I will warn you though, they are addictive and you will find yourself wanting them all. Back to my card... I have been really trying to challenge myself artistically by exploring different colouring mediums and Coloured Pencils (In particular, Prismacolor coloured pencils) are one thing I have wanted to play around with but I have always found them too hard...slowly I feel I'm improving with them and I so love the depth and detail you can get with Coloured Pencils. So get ready for lots of images coloured with pencils in the future because I'm really enjoying using them. What do you think of my card? Do you like the look of coloured pencils on Kraft Cardstock or do you prefer Copic colouring?

Details about the Challenge:
Today we are kicking the year off with our very first Saturday challenge of 2018! Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps decided to do away with the Wednesday challenges so we all can focus on the fun themes during our Saturday challenges! AND Kim is changing things up as far as prizes!!! Each Saturday she will post a new challenge and you can enter as many times as you like!!! And each submission during the month will enter you into the monthly prize which will be....a $40 gift voucher to spend in the krafty shop!!! What do you think? Worth playin' for?   Keep in mind, all entries are welcome but you must use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp in order to win.
We've also got a brand new sketch for your inspiration for January! You don't have to use it but if you need a little extra kickstart in your mojo, feel free to use it any time!

The challenge for this week is SENTIMENTS!! Create a card, scrapbook page, altered item etc. with a sentiment anywhere on it (it can be the focal point or just an addition to your creation) and submit your design for your chance to WIN! You have until Friday, January 12th to enter this challenge!


  1. Love the look of pencils on kraft! What brand kraft paper did you use?

  2. Wow! You are quite an amazing colorist! Love the depth you get with pencils, but I am a Copic girl with carpal tunnel, so all that layering of color with pencils is too much for me. Really gorgeous palette and pops to beautifully on the kraft stock.

    1. Thank you very much! I will admit that the pencils to aggravate my wrists as well...I like to play with both mediums but when my wrists bother me I switch to Copics

  3. Great job with the colouring. A fab card x
