it's called JUST ONE MORE PAGE!


This super cool stamp set features a reader who looks so peaceful to be starting an adventure! She's all set with her comfy pillow chair, noise cancelling headphones and of course, her BOOK! Plus three amazing sentiments!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Tweetie Pies


Hi Friends! 
I have a fun, clean and simple card to share with you today that you can whip up in no time.


I coloured this adorable image from the Tweetie Pies stamp set with Copic markers and then cut her using my Brother Scan N Cut.

My card layout is pretty simple which I have been really into the last while. I started by ink blending Purple Petunia Krafty Kolours hybrid inks onto some purple cardstock using the Leaves and Vines stencil. I made a point to lighten my hand to give the soft look around the edges. Next I placed my ink blended piece onto some striped green diagonal  pattern paper that I had in my collection. I diecut a circle and did some more ink blending using the Charming Chartreuse Hybrid Ink (which matched the green in the pattern paper perfectly!!...I love it when that happens!!) To finish off my card I added a few green enamel dots from the Rainbow Dots collection (which also matched the patten paper and Charming Chartreuse Ink perfectly!! Woohoo)

I hope you liked my card creation for today!

Until next time - Stephen

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - You Are Mer-Mazing

Hi Friends and welcome back to Day TWO of the

JUNE 2019 release at

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
This new stamp set is amazing in fact...it's called YOU ARE MER-MAZING and it’s by artist, Neda Sadreddin!



I coloured the AMAZING mermaid image up using Copic markers. I placed her overtop of a background I created by doing some ink smooshing with my Krafty Kolours hybrid inks. For some added interest, I used a scalloped edge die on the right of the card. To finish off the card I heat embossed the sentiment on some black cardstock using white embossing powder and added a few clear droplets.

You’re a Legend!


Hi Friends!
 Today I decided I needed to crack open my Magical Celebrations Grab and Go! box again from Stamp Anniething. I love the Grab and Go! boxes as they literally have everything you need to create a card, scrapbook layout, tag, or whatever your heart desires...just grab your favourite colouring medium and some inks and you are good to go! 
I die cut the stained glass window thats included in the box and did some simple ink blending using Stamp Anniething blender brushes and Hybrid inks. I coloured up this cute image using Copic markers and die cut him out using the coordinating die. I popped him up with foam tape and added a bit of gold thread behind him. The sentiment was heat embossed on black card stock using white embossing powder. To finish off my card, I added some enamel dots that are also included in the box.

I hope you like my card creation for today!

Until Next Time - Stephen
