Le sentiment est de Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps , de la planche Capture the moment.

KKS - August Scrappy Challenge - Gnomesville






Bonjour ! Hello!

voici mon projet pour le défi d'août chez  Kraftin Kimmie Stamps lien FB, une page qui ira dans mon album de photos, j'ai capté ce petit village de champignons l'an dernier, au cours d'une de mes longues promenades ! Dès que j'ai vu ce jeu d'étampes, My Gnomies j'ai tout suite fait le lien avec ma photograhie!  Les petits personnages sont étampés sur Bristol velum, colorié aux crayons de couleurs (Prismacolor et Fabercastel), j'ai quelquefois utilisé de la taltine.  Gnomesville, qui figure en titre est le nom d'une ville d'Australie; je l'ai coupé avec ma cricut (Folk Art Festival), de même que le gros champignon à fleur.  Les brins de gazons sont une découpe de Memory box.

This is my creation for the August Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge, a page for my photo album. I captured this little mushroom village last October, while taking one of those long walks in my favority park. When KKS launched this cute stamp set, My GnomiesI instantly thought of how well it would accompany my picture! The title, Gnomesville, is a city in Australia; I cut the letters and the mushroom with my cricut, (Folk Art Festival). The grass is a die cut by Memory box.




Un gros plan du champignon-maison,

Challenge #492 - Go Green, chez Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps


Bonjour! Hello!
Go Green is the challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps this week.  and August is also the time we get our Halloween stuff ready at KKS!  I colored the cute Haunted House with crayons (mix of Prisma color and Faber Castel), wanted a dramatic effect in the sky, I used neon green as a base, and build up my colors afterwards.  I altered  a little cosmetic bag, to become a treat bag, to leave on the table, full of goodies, for my grand-children when they come !  The sentiment is from another set, Spooky Suckers and finally the fun little bats are from Harvest Blessings set! I love so much the versatility of the sets, because it is always possible to mix and match them to create the effect you want!

Le défi No. 492 chez Kraftin Kimmie est Go Green. Le mois d'août est aussi le mois où l'on se prépare pour  l'Halloween chez KKS. J,ai colorié la jolie maison hantée aux cratyons de bois, (prisma color et faber castel) pour obtenir la gamme de couleurs dont j'avais besoin. Je voulais créer un ciel dramatique, j'ai  utilisé le vert néon et bâti l'effet à partir de cette teinte pour créer des nuages un peu à l'air menaçant! J'ai transformé un petit sac à cosmétique en sac de surprise à laisser sur la table, pour mes petits enfants! Le sentiment provient d'un autre jeu,  Spooky Sucker et les adorables petites chauve souris de Harvest Blessings setJ,aime la versatilité des jeux de KKS, ils se marient si bien ensemble pour crééer l'effet souhaité!

this is the complete pannel that consists the front of the bag before I glued it.
Voici le panneau frontal du sac, avant d'être collé.


A view of the bag, from the front! 

Une vue frontale du sac.



A view of the back of the bag. I used an old foam stamp to emboss the "Boo" with the fabulous Mossy Meadow Krafty ink, and the pannels are all inked with this color to give a dramatic effect. It creates a more dramatic effect than simply inking in black. The little gostly figures are also from the Harvest Blessings set!

l'arrière du sac. En pièce centrale, le mot BOO encré avec la couleur Mossy Meadow  et embossé à chaud avec de la poudre brillante. Le pourtour des cartons est aussi encré avec cette couleur séduisante, qui donne un effet plus dramatique que simplement du noir. Les petits visages de fantomes proviennent aussi du jeu Harvest Blessings.



A sideway view, showing a dry embossed  spider web pannel, here again, I inked the side of the cardstock with Mossy Meadow, and heat embossed with glittery powder.


Thank you for stopping by, and Happy Krafting!!!


I would like to enter my project into the following challenges:

Ravenclaw Challenge - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps



Bonjour ! Hello!
The Harry Potter month is ending soon at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and my last challenge so happends to be the Ravenclaw house, which is my own house! Ravenclaw is the house that champions those with a ready mind, it welcomes eccentric people, those who think outside of the box and speak their minds.  I can relate to many of those specifications, but I think they should be "lived" with kindness. Cultivate kindness in everyday's life is most important to me. I  selected this very image from the Life is a Joy  set, released earlier this month, because it is so sweet. . I wanted to illustrate the values of Ravenclaw in a very kind way!

 Have you recognized the  blond girl and the red hair boy? 


Thinking outside the box is what triggered my inspiration.  so ...I made a book card, and the image is in a shadow box.  I used the Ravenclaw color (blue) as my main contrasting cardstock.
Quite a challenge to take good pictures!


This is the cover.
Stamps used: Kraftin Kimmie:  Just one more page (sentiment):

The inside of the book.





The lovely sentiment is from the "Life is a joy" brand new set from July launch. 
The starry sky effect is created with the  Starburst Stencil, the ink I used is Party Peach, also new in July.




The image is showcased in a shadow box! I stamped my image with the peach ink, did the no line technique with Polichromos pencils, on Bristol paper.





An  angle picture to better see the pages of the book, all inked with Party peach, I cheated a bit, and distressed the look with Vintage photo.





I substituted the title for the publishing house, which happends to be Ravenclaw Editor!



Thank you for stopping by!
Happy crafting!
