This little piggy loves you sow much

Hallo allemaal!

Lang zal ik leven, lang zal ik leven in de gloria, in de gloria hieperdepiep, hoera! Vandaag ben ik jarig, maar zoals de afgelopen vier jaar vieren we het samen in de zomer. Vandaag trakteerde ik mijn bewoners en collega's op een stukje kwark of cognactaart maar verder doe ik er niets aan.


Voor mijn kaart van vandaag ging ik aan de slag met de nieuwe release van MFT, de schets en kleurenchallenge. Ik combineerde alles in één kaart en dit is het resultaat. Heat emboste de achtergrond met wit embossingpoeder op een stuk licht blauw cardstock dit is de voorkant van de kaart. Heat emboste de tekst op een andere kleur blauw cardstock en maakte er drie strookjes van.


Stanste de photoboot stans vier keer en plakte deze op elkaar. Tussen de eerste en de tweede strip plakte ik de varkentjes die ik ingekleurd heb met mijn Copic Markers. Op een vierkant stempelde ik de tekst en plakte daar wat hartjes op in dezelfde donker blauwe kleur.

Fijne dag allemaal!

Groet, Marieke

Krafty Peek day 3: It's a mystery + a challenge

Hello all,

Welcome to day three of the April Krafty peeks by Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. It's the last day because of tonight all the goodies will be available in store. But we saved last for best i would say, because this set by Neda Sadreddin is da bomb (at least i think that).


The last set of this month release is called It's a mystery! It's a fun versatile set and great for male cards or invitations for a treasure hunt!


So far you did not see a set of ATC cards Coming by so here they are! I had this idea in my head and it worked out just like i wanted to!


For all the four cards i wanted to do the same, so a made a background using Distress inks and stencils. I wanted the charters to be the focal point so i made the spotlight to put the character in. The stencils i used are corresponding with the sentiment.


Stamped all the images and colored them in using my Copic Markers. Fussy cut the images and glued them on the cards. I stamped some solid images using my black ink. Heat embost the sentiment using versamark ink and white embossing powder.

Have a lovely day!

Krafty Peeks day 1: Good in the woods + Good in the woods accessories

Hello all,

All the krafty FUN is about to begin! Welcome to the April release of 2019 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

This is Day ONE of our Krafty Peeks and we are incredibly excited to share everything with you! We've got new stamps, stencils, ink and enamel dots! Hang on to your inkpads people....here we GO!
We are kicking things off BIG today with TWO brand new sets from artist, Cheryl Grant!! GOOD IN THE WOODS and ACCESSORIES!


For my shadowbox card i used both sets and matched them up. First of i stamped the shadowbox die three times. Twice in white and one time from kraft paper. The kraft die cut i cut them a bit smaller using my scissors so it would match the front. Set those aside and made the background using different dies and cardstock.


The background i sponged blue and put some birds in the sky using my black fineliner. The strips in between i gave them some grass and sand to match the background and the scene. Die cut the rest of the die cuts like the branches, apples, lanterns and the sign. For the sign i made the background myself using the new stencil and ink. Then heat embosst the sentiment and cut it out. With brown ink i gave it a older look.


Stamped all the images and colored them in using my Copic Markers. Fussy cut all the images and adhered them on the right spot on the card.

Have a lovely day!

To know ewe is to love ewe

Hallo allemaal,

Woensdag was ik al begonnen me dit kaartje echter kregen we visite en kwam het er niet van om het af te maken zo ging ik gisteren dan maar even verder en maakte het kaartje af. Ik ging aan de slag met de schets van My Favorite Things. Ik draaide hem 180 graden en maakte er een strakke kaart van.


Met distress inkt maakte ik het gras, stanste het daarna uit met de gras stans en het hek uit kraft papier. Plakte het op elkaar en met distress inkt maakte ik de achtergrond. Stempelde ten slotte de tekst


Stempelde de schaapjes en het hart en kleurde ze in met mijn Copic Markers. Stanste ze daarna uit en plakte ze op de kaart. Het hart bewerkte ik met glossy accent.

Fijne dag allemaal!

Groet, Marieke
