KKS - Inspirational Wednesday - Out of this world

Hello Krafty Friends!
The day we provide you with a bit of extra krafty inspiration
to help you get creative with your krafty stamps!
I am the hostess this week.
I was so happy when OUT OF THIS WORLD  got re-stocked lately!
I love those cute monsters, and wanted to create a card with them
for my grand-son sixth birthday!

chez Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Le moment où nous vous offrons une inspiration!
Je suis l'hôtesse cette semaine
et je suis heureuse de vous présenter le jeu
qui est de retour dans la boutique dernièrement.
J'adore ces petits monstres, et j'ai créé une carte pour le sixième anniversaire
de mon petit fils Gabriel.

A long long time ago, in a far far away galaxy,
a close encouter between two adorable monsters
and a young adventurous astronaut occured.
I stamped all my images with Party Peach ink, did a lot of masking `
to squeeze every one in that narrow space.
I lengthen the flag pole held by the astronaut from the set Blast off! to give a sense of height.
The images are colored with Polychromos, on bristol velum. 
I used solvent on the monsters to create a soft shading, and a bit of texture.
I masked all my images to make the sky. Starting close to the planet 
I brushed many coats of Stormy Sky ink, followed by Magical Midnight
I mixed some Gloss heavy gel with lots of silver glitters and 
applied sparingly with the Star Burst Stencil, which I also used to draw the  six stars in the flag, adding some Stickles to make them shine!
I used the Party Time Dots on the sentiment from
Party Time Sentiment set.

Il y a très très longtemps, dans une très lointaine galaxie
eut lieu une rencontre du troisième type
entre deux adorables petits monstres et
un jeune astronaute aventurier!
Mes images sont étampées sur bristol velin avec l'encre Party Peach.
coloriées aux Polychromos; j'ai aussi utilisé du solvant (taltine) pour donner douceur et texture.
j'ai utilisé plusieurs masques pour créer cette scène
et faire entrer tous les personnages dans cet espace quand même étroit.
J'ai allongé le mât du drapeau tenu par le jeune astronaute du jeu Blast off pour donner une sensation de hauteur dans l'image.
Pour créer le ciel, j'ai masqué toutes les images, j'ai utilisé une brosse pour appliquer mon encre,
plusieurs couches ont été nécessaire pour obtenir l'intensité que je souhaitais.
encres:  Stormy SkyMagical Midnight
Sparkling Sapphire  et Bubbly Blue.
Puis j'ai appliqué une mixture de Gel épais brillant avec beaucoup de brillants argent,
avec le stencil Star Brust, aussi utilisé pour dessiner les étoiles sur le drapeau.
Les Party Time dots décore le sentiment.

l'intérieur de la carte.

If you want to add OUT OF THIS WORLD! stamp set to your collection,
visit the KKS Shop
and find it at 40% OFF this week!

Happy Kraftin'

May Madness Weekend at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Circular shape fancy fold card

Hello Krafty Friends!

 Here is my project for this May Madness Weekend, a step by step tutorial
to make a fancy fold card, from a round shape.
You will need:

Cardstock plain, 8 1/2 X 11  - to make base of card, plus enough to make inside cards.
Pattern Paper - for matting ( optional)

Cut one 8 1/4 inches diameter circle in plain cardstock.

STEP 1 - score at 1 7/8 and 6 3/8 inches.
STEP 2 - rotate 90 degrees. Score at 2 1/2 inches.
STEP 3 - make folds with bonefolder and cut on the fold line starting where the vertical fold meets the horizontal one, from the inside of the circle towards the outside.
Bonjour !
Un projet conçu spécialement pour le May Madness Weekend
chez Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Un tuto : comment faire une carte à plis de fantaisie à partir d'un cercle.
voici, ce dont vous aurez besoin:
Carton uni - 8 1/2 x 11 po. pour la base de la carte, et suffisamment  pour faire les étiquettes intérieures.
Du papier imprimé (pour doubler - optionnel)

Couper un cercle de 8 1/4 pouce de diamètre dans le carton uni.
ÉTAPE 1 - marquer at 1 7/8 pouce et 6 3/8 pouces
ÉTAPE 2 - Tournez à 90 degré et marquez à 2 1/2 pouces.
ETAPE 3 - Pliez sur les crans avec un plioir, et couper sur la ligne de pli en commençant où le pli vertical rencontre le pli horizontal, de l'intérieur du cercle vers l'extérieur. ( tel qu'indiqué sur la photo)

** If you wish to mat the card, do so before following to step 4.  If not, continue to step 4.
Matting instructions :
Cut one 8 inches circle in pattern paper. I have chose a double sided paper, and used both sides. Then,  I measured and cut pieces for the flaps, the inside section, and the bottom flap, and the little corners,guiding myself on the measurements of the previous larger circle, but cutting them slightly narrower. Position the inside matting before gluing the side pannels. Following by both lateral pannels. Mat the lower pannel before closing the little corners. To glue the folds in place, follow instructions beginning on step 4. 

 ** Si vous souhaitez ajouter du papier à motif à votre base de carte, tel que l'exemple; il vous faudra le faire avant de passer à l'étape 4. Sinon, poursuivez à l'étape 4.
Instructions pour doubler:
Couper un cerle de 8 pouces de diamètre dans un papier à motif. J,ai choisi un papier à double sens, et utilisé les 2 sens. J'ai mesuré et coupé les pièces de papier imprimé en me guidant sur les plis déjà faits pour la base de la carte, et coupant légèrement plus petit. Ajustez les pièces de papier imprimé à la base de la carte, et les coller en place. Puis, continuer de décorer les rabats latéraux, puis en dernier, le petit rabat de la base, et terminer par les coins. Pour coller toutes les pièces, continuer à l'étape 4.

Step 4 - Fold the two little flaps obtained towards the front of the bottom section of the card. then place a strip of double sided tape inside, at the bottom of each lateral flaps . indicated by the arrows.

Etape 4. Formez le pli des 2 rabats latéraux sur le devant de la carte, et placer un ruban collant à l'intérieur. Et coller en place.

Step 5 -  add tape to the bottom section, and the side of the bottom pannel. Glue in place.

Etape 5 . Ajoutez du ruban adhésif sur les côtés et au bas du rabat .

Step 6 - Place a strip of tape at the bottom of the little corners only, as indicated by the arrows.

Etape 6 : Placez un ruban de colle au bas des deux petits coins, tel qu'indiquer par les flêches, et pliez les sur l'endroit de la carte.


Measurements for Inside cards: made with same cardstock as card.

Large one: 4 x 4 1/1 inches; Medium one 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches; small: 3 1/2 x 2 inches. I have matted each cards with remaining of my patterned paper.

EMESURE des cartes intérieures , coupées dans le même carton que la base de la carte.

Le plus grand: 4 X 41/4 pouces
Moyen: 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 pouces
petit: 3 1/" par 2 pouces.

J'ai recouvert chacune de ces cartes avec le reste du papier imprimé.

Hello Krafty friends!
Wecome back to another month of scrappy fun!
We challenge you to make anything but a card!

Bonjour chères amies!
voici le temps d'un autre Scrappy Challenge chez 

J'ai créé un signet  avec: 
I created a bookmark with
Neda Sadreddin

My images are stamped on Bristol velum paper, and colored with polychromos
I used the leaves and vines stencil to create the branch  (inks: Charming Chartreuse, Mossy meadow) to which I draw a little birdhouse.
I also used the Krafty Scenery 1 stencil to make the clouds with
Magical midnight, Sparkling sapphire and bubbly blue inks. 
Glitter around the image is done with stickles, and to enhance the color, I inked the border with Whimsical Wisteria and gorgeous grape inks.

Mes images sont étampées sur bristol velin et mise en couleur aux Polychromos.
La petite branche feuillue est faite avec le  leaves and vines stencil et les encres: Charming Chartreuse, Mossy Meadow) J'ai dessiné une petite cabane d'oiseau!
Le ciel est aussi au stencil, avec Krafty Scenery 1 
et les encres: Magical midnight, Sparkling sapphire et bubbly blue inks. 
du stickle tout autour de l'image sur les bords encrés avec Wimsical Wisteria et Gorgeous Grape.
Un petit gland de soie, et une chaine avec une plume, et une breloque en coeur pour terminer le tout.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Challenge # 529 Layers

Good Morning and welcome to another Saturday Challenge at

Bonjour et bienvenue à un autre Défi du Samedi

This week I am the hostess for this fun and krafty challenge
to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing!
and my challenge for you is

Cette semaine, je suis l'hôtesse de ce défi amusant 
qui peut vous aider à garder votre pensée créative en ébullition.
et, mon thème est 
ajouter des couches ( LAYERS)

I love building cards with many layers!
for this one, I started with a plain cardstock, and used both 
Whimsical Wisteria and Gorgeous Grapes 
with our Confetti Stencil to build the base of my card.
I wanted to go vintage, so I went with a flowery patterned paper (from Magnolia)
for my center piece where I wanted to enhance the sentiment
PARTY TIME  SENTIMENTS SET from artist Melissa Baker Nguyen

j'aime beaucoup construire des cartes à plusieurs couches
je trouve que cela donne du volume et de la dimension.
Pour la base de cette carte, j'ai commencé avec le Stencil Confetti
et les encres Whimsical Wisteria et Grogeous Grapes.
J'avais envie d'un style vintage, qui marierait bien ces teintes de violet.
j'ai choisi un papier imprimé à fleur de Magnolia, qui mettrait en valeur
mon sentiment
de l'ensemble PARTY TIME SENTIMENT SET  de l'artiste Melissa Baker Nguyen.

A die cut doily from Marianne Design constitutes the center piece,
to which I added an inside circle with same paper
finally placing my sentiment.
I created a bouquet, decorated it with string ribbons.
I added purple color to my flowers with same shades of inks and
completed their glittery finish with Glamour dust cristal. 
little krafty dots at the opposite corner to add details.

Une découpe de Marianne Design constitue la pièce centrale,
auquel j'ai ajouté un cercle fleuri pour rappeler la base
Puis mon sentiment embossé avec l,encre purple grapes.
Pour compléter le tout, un bouquet de fleurs, dont les couleurs ont été rehaussées
à l'encre violet, et enduite de Glamour dust pour plus de brillant.
un ruban jute, allant bien avec le style vintage complète le tout.
sans oublier, les petits Krafty dots dans le coin opposé aux fleurs.
