Today is the second day of sneak peeks for the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps February Launch and I’m back for my second day as Guest Designer! This featured stamp set today is Happiness is Homemade and it is super cute. Designed by artist Neda Sadreddin, it seems to be so right to launch this during February and the lead up to Valentine’s Day. Who can resist a freshly baked cookie?!!
I used the new stencil, Baking Bonanza, with Opal Deco Foil. As soon as I saw the stencil, I knew I had to try this technique out. I used Transfer Gel Duo, spreading it through my stencil with a Prima one inch silicone brush and let it try overnight. Then, I cut the sheet of Deco Foil to size and placed it into a folded sheet of parchment paper with a cardstock backer to add support. I let my laminating machine get hot and then put it through. I always let it cool before removing the sheet. I so loved the subtle effect of the opal foil on the white cardstock. Exactly what I wanted for this project!
I wanted to keep this card softer, so I used a pink square cardstock base. I cut the foiled cardstock down slightly smaller and taped it to the base. Next, I diecut two tags using my WR Memory Keepers Nesting Tags Die. Using the sentiments from the stamp set, Versamark watermark stamp pad and Ranger embossing power in Aqua Tinsel, I heat embossed the sentiments on the tags. I then edged both tags with the new Aqua Adventures Kraftin’ Kimmie Colours hybrid ink.
I used soft Copic marker colours on my little bakers: EOO, EO1, R20, G00, B45, E53, YR21, YR31, E47, E74, E79, BG0000, E40, C00, R00, E93, N0, C00, E43, E47. I Also used Sakura Gelly Roll marker pens in white for the buttons and #744 for the stove and the whisk handle.
The finishing touches were to add some embellishments from the Doodlebug Made with Love line. (Did I tell you I stalked this line until I could get in Canada and scooped it up right away knowing it was going to be perfect for this launch?!) I added Shape Sprinkles in Sprinkling of Love and Bake Me Happy. I also added some Stickles in Stardust around the edge of the Deco Foil layer to add a final touch of glitter. I’m so happy with the results!
