Paint My World - TTCRD, Distress crayon


This week's sponsor for the Through the Craftroom Door challenge is Stamp On It!

Stamp On It had it's humble beginnings in Holland MI 25+ years ago.... started out as a "home" business, soon became a storefront on the north side of Holland, grew to a 2nd storefront in Grand Rapids, before closing the Holland store and enlarging the Grand Rapids one! We began doing small craft shows years ago, slowly adding rubber stamp conventions to our schedule, expanding to almost full-time shows on the road before making the decision in the fall of 2009 to either close or sell the store. Before we were able to close the store, one of our employees voiced her desire to purchase the store! Long story short, we "sealed" the deal by the end of 2009 and became pretty much full-time rubber stamp convention vendors on the road.

PRIZE; 3 images

For my card, I used the Art Palette and Painter for a colourful, rainbow and paint inspired card.

I decided to showcase Leaves Are Falling, using the boy and his pumpkin and pup, and pair it with last year's Grateful Pumpkins. I used a gel plate and stamping for the background and, once again, ink watercolour for the image. For more information on how I put it together, check out my detail post: https://rijacki.blogspot.com/2019/09/pumpkin-spice-detail-kraftin-kimmie.html.


Inside, I added a sentiment from each set and a pumpkin from Grateful Pumpkins.

For my card, I used a Lawn Fawn interactive die set to make a magic picture story. Say cheese!


Pull the slider up to see the mousie with a slice of cheese.


And inside, the belly full mousie. How very mice of you! You're such a squeak-heart!

The mice and cheese were stamped and coloured with Creamy Caramel and Yummy Yellow on a table cloth stencilled with Totally Taupe and Salty Sea.  If you want to know more about how I made the card, check out my details post: https://rijacki.blogspot.com/2019/09/youre-squeak-heart-detail-kks.html.

Elf-tastic - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps day 3 September sneak peeks


For the month of September, I am a Guest designer on the Kraftin' Kimmie design team! This means I get to help showcase sneak peeks for the September release!

Welcome back to Day THREE of our SEPTEMBER 2019 release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We are keepin' things going with a brand new adorable set from artist, Neda Sadreddin called...



ELF-TACULAR!

Check out these sweet elves, reindeer and SANTA of course! So many fun accessory stamps....presents, snowflakes, candy canes, stars!! Plus several magical sentiments!

As you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today you will see the ELF-TACULAR stamp set in action in combination with our awesome new September Kraftin' Kimmie products.....ink, stencils and krafty dots!

Everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends facebook group on Saturday, September 14th at 2pm EST!


My card is a double slider surprise that opens out to reveal Santa, the reindeer, and elves using a Lawn Fawn die set. I used Krafty Kolours with a waterbrush to colour the images with bright vibrant colours. I also added embossed snowflakes and used masking to add a blended background.


Inside, I stamped a sentiment with Wicked black and added a couple of the accessories for fun detail.


When the slider is closed, thee elf extols you to "Believe in the Magic!"
