Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps September Release Blog Hop

Have you been enjoying this weeks peeks? The September release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps are amazing! Panda Bears, Zombies and the sweetest Cave Kids ever!

Today we are back with a KRAFTY BLOG HOP to celebrate this amazing new release. Join the Krafty girls and Guests as we share and hopefully inspire you with these amazing new stamps. This week we have previewed a lot of FABULOUS stamps from all of the talented artists.

We started with the adorable panda bears from WILD ABOUT YOU.

Then we featured the Freak but Chic Zombie gals of TRICK OR EAT!

and last but certainly not least the DINO-mite set from Cheryl Grant featuring the ever sweet Lulu, Lexi and Lucas calls CAVE KIDS.

Today, for our release hop I am sharing a card using an image from WILD ABOUT YOU!

Usually I avoid colouring black and white on my images. I have struggled to get the right look, shading and depth with those colours. Coming face to face with these adorable panda's, I decided to face my fears and I thinks they turned out nicely!

For the shading in my white areas, I used my warm greys (W00, 01, 03) just lightly around the outside. For the black, I used a larger range of the cool greys (c00, 01, 03, 05, 07 and 09) and starting with my lightest, worked up adding layers to the darkest, then went reverse back down to my lightest.

I love the paper in the Fancy Pants What a Wonderful Day and with the black card stock the patterned paper really pops with this image. I cut out simple triangle shapes to create the banner and adhere a small punched heart (covered with glitter) and black Doodlebug Sprinkles. On the bubble I used a little bit of Glossy Accents.

Inside the card I didn't add one of the stamped images (like I usually do). I did find this fabulous bamboo that I was able to die cut on my Cricut (Create a Critter).

Now it's time to continue hoppin' along and checking out the other UN-BEAR-ABLY cute creations by the rest of this amazing group of Krafty Girls and Guests. Remember to leave a comment on each of the blogs on this hop because a lucky winner will enjoy a $25 gift card to the shop.

So get HOPPIN', then go SHOPPIN'. Head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop to see all of the amazing new stamps. While you are there check out past releases and other fabulous stamps, paper, mounting supplies.......... so many great things to check out.
