Today, I am braving the world of video colouring demonstrations! Why? Well, because when I was hanging out at the last Kraftin’ Kimmie release party, a lot of ladies mentioned that they would love to see some colouring. So, since it was my turn for a tutorial for Kimmie, I figured I would give it a go! And while I am certainly no Copic or colouring expert, hopefully this little demo will inspire you to get out your colouring tools of choice and get crafty!
The stamp featured in the tutorial is from the Once Upon a Time 3 set, and the paper used for the card base is MME.
Thanks for stopping by!

I decided to team up the adorable Lola Lollipop stamp with the kit this month for a fun centre step card. If you’ve spent any time here at ScrappyCanuck Studios, you’ll know that I love Doodlebug patterns and colours, so I had a blast working with this month’s kit!
Now I know you might be thinking – that doesn’t look like the card base in the kit, but I assure you that all the materials used for the card, including the base are from the kit. Here – check it out!
This fantastic kit will be released on Saturday night at our LIVE online release party starting at 6:30pm EST on the Kraftin’ Kimmie Facebook page, along with all of our new stamps being previewed this week – oh, and a bunch more from me featuring the materials from this kit!
Now hop around and check out the SIX awesome cards that the Krafty Girls have made to inspire you!
That’s it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
I have a confession to make. I do not always colour in the lines! No matter how hard I try, I almost always end up outside of the lines in at least one place when I am colouring stamped images. So I wanted to share a little trick with you today.
For this project, I decided to use one of my favourite ChiChi Memories stamps called “Elephant Love” for this card! I love the clean lines on this digi, and you can personalize it in all sorts of ways. So I grabbed my Copics and got to it!
Now, if you look closely, you’ll notice that there are a few places where the colour came across the lines around the edges of the stamped image. If you are using alcohol markers, you can fix this with a colourless blender, but I like to kill two birds with one stone. So, once I am finished colouring the image…
…I grab my BG11 marker and run it along the outside edge of the image – right over top of any of the marker that has “crossed the line”. This not only blends out any of that colour and draws the eye away from those spots, it also give a “halo” effect to your image and helps it to pop off of the page.
If you are not a Copic user – the same technique can work for you – you’ll just have to experiment a bit with the colour that you like best. I like the lighter tones, and I am particularly partial to this blue green colour because I find that it is really subtle and brightens up the image and the other colours I have chosen. You almost do not notice that it is there – which is exactly the effect I am going for!
Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you found this little tip helpful. Thanks for stopping by!
We’re so excited! It’s our OCTOBER RELEASE Day at KRAFTIN’ KIMMIE STAMPS!! And we’re celebrating with a KRAFTY HOP!! So grab yourself a cuppa joe, sit back and be prepared for some krafty eye kandy! We’re going to inspire your creations with our new stamps and MORE!
Today, I decided to team up a few of my favourite things - two of the darling new stamps from artist Thais Narciso (I’M SNOW HAPPY), with another one of my favourite things – chocolate! These chocolate bar sliders are so easy and so much fun to make, and tell me that these wouldn’t make the cutest stocking stuffers ever!
If you’ve never made a chocolate bar slider (or candy bar slider as my friend from the south call them), they are super easy – in fact, I am pretty sure that I have a tutorial here on SCS that you can use to help you out! Then, all you need to do is head on over to Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps and put these cuties in your shopping carte, and you’ll be all set to go!
Oh, and don’t you dare forget about the adorable KRAFTY KARDMAKING KITS!!! All the papers (and fun adhesive cork paper) for these sliders are from this month’s kit – I simply modified the card bases to create the slider cover and then embellished with all the other goodies in the kit! So don’t be afraid to think outside the box (kit???). Just because we call it a “kard” kit, that doesn’t mean you can’t use it as an excuse to go and buy chocolate (like I did!).
The Krafty Girls have cards featuring all the new stamps up for you to look at today, so grab a cup of something yummy, and get hopping! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of these incredible stamps from the new release!! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are available NOW!
