Hello Spring - mixed media with Krafty Kolours from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Today's flowerful greeting is made with a brand new product from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Not just the gorgeous flower stamps but the inks, too! Krafty Kolours Inks by Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! These are hybrid inks in gorgeous colours that are fun to work with.

I combined Krafty Kolours Inks with a new stamp set from the May release, that will also be available now in inky kits, and a wood door hanger laser cut with the greeting.

Flowers - colouring 3D embossing

I went to the stampin' gather hosted by my Stampin' Up demonstrator, and she showed us the pre-order Gotta Have It All bundle for the upcoming release and colour revamp. We got to play with the new pretties (and some of the current ones, too). She didn't have a planned make and take but let us create with our own inspiration.
