This was such a fun image to colour!!  Especially all those arms!!  I can relate to this, can you?
Once again, I have coloured the image using Copics.  The designer paper is from the Lawn Fawn - Perfectly Plaid and Watercolor Wishes paper pads.  I've used a couple of Spellbinder dies, and a banner die from YNS.  The butterflies are an MS punch.  I just thought this image needed some lace and flowers!

These new inks are a Hybrid ink that combines the best of both dye ink and pigment ink!

- They give a crisp, bright, non-bleeding impression!
- They come in full sized pads, mini cubes and ink refills!
With these inks you can ink directly, sponge, stencil, water colour, you can do all sorts of techniques with them and the Krafty Kolours Inks are safe to use with pencils and alcohol based markers!
Today we are having a big Launch Party over on the Krafty Friends Facebook page with the Krafty Girls and Special Krafty Guests sharing information about the new products, sharing tons of new projects, live videos, YouTube videos, we're doing giveaways, challenges and lots more!
You'll be able to purchase all the large ink pads, mini cubes and refills individually OR in sets at a small discount and there are TWO brand NEW stamp sets that are from the May release that will ONLY be released as part of the special kits!
We also have amazing coordinating Bazzill Bling cardstocks to match the coloured inks and you'll be able to scoop those up as well!

Hi there!  I had so much fun creating this background using the brand new Krafty Kolours Inks.  I have a video posted on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps group on YouTube, showing how I achieved this look on glossy card stock.  I hope you'll check it out and give it a try!  The stamp used is called Mermaid Friends.  To finish the card I added a few sequins.

Here's another card I did using the inks and the new stamp set Beautiful Blooms.

For my Anything But A Card project I made Gift Card Purses.  Aren't they just so sweet!! The paper I used for the body of the purse is from the K and Company paper pad.  I also used the dotted paper from YNS.  For the flap and handle I used a Spellbinder dies.  I found a printable template online for the large bow.  Then I finished it off with a flower and a white pearl.  I used Velcro to close the lid. 
The gift card is added to the inside of the purse.  Here are a few pictures.


The Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps I used are from the stamp set Kick Assy Birthday and Birthday Bianca.  To create the gift card holder I used the Lift A Flap die from Lawn Fawn.


This is a close up of the gift card holder.  These purses were quite easy to do.  There are lots of templates on Pinterest.  I changed how and where I put my gift card but either way is good. 
A few more pictures of the purses.




Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you can join our Anything But A Card challenge with us this month!!  Have a great week!
