Kim Klinkovsky Chicks Picnic

Here’s a totally fun card sent in by Kim. Don’t you just love the red and yellow combination!

Here’s what Kim wrote: Hello friends! The red and yellow plaid pattern papers remind me of summer picnics with family and friends. And this chicken wire embossing folder makes the perfect background, with a touch of country using this wagon wheel type border punch. These adorable chicks remind me of me and my friends sitting around catching up on life. I used a mix of watered down gelatos to paint the chicks, watercolor crayons to create the grass and the sky, and cut them out using a stitched frame die cut and border cut. Then I added some festive ribbon, buttons, and a tag to finish it up.

Isn’t this an oh so springtime flowery card. Kim did this and I just love all of her embellishments – from the doily in the background, the big beautiful flowers, even the little ribbon rose for Cottontail bunny’s tail!

Here’s what Kim wrote:
I created this 6″x6″ card that is full of spring colors and this cute little bunny, to get a jump on Easter which is March 27th this year. I’ve never used gelatos before and here I used them on the flowers, the background scallop circle and on the bunny. I stamped the bunny on a piece of watercolor paper with black ink. I mixed purple and blue gelatos together, added water, and stirred until it turned gray to paint in the bunny. I mixed the gelatos with water and left it thicker for the background. And thinned it for the flowers and painting the bunny. I used an oval punch and adhered the bunny image to center of scallop circle with pop dots. And I added a white rosette ribbon to the bunny tail for a unique touch. Happy Easter!

And hey, here’s a special treat. Over on the CardMaker you can see Kim’s actual crafting space! Oh my goodness this girls got oodles of stuff!

Kim Klinkovsky lighthouse

Here’s a lovely card that was delayed in being posted, but I thought it’d be nice to start the new year with a card that’s just thinking of someone special. Kim’s done a wonderful job combing a red, white and blue theme. I love how she put the little sentiment flag on the flagpole of the little part of the building and included some cut out waves. When you just want to send someone a nice card, why not use this one for inspiration.

Kim says:
When I think of lighthouses I always think of red, white, and blue. They are very stately and all American. And this Eat Cake Graphics lighthouse stamp goes perfect with this Graphic 45 nautical paper collection. I colored the stamp image with Copic markers and Atyou Spica glitter pens. It wouldn’t be my creation if it didn’t have some bling with glitter glue on the waves, the windows, and the light. Punch a wavy border at the bottom for some motion. And finished it with a big patriotic ribbon, a sentiment banner, and some black gems.

Here’s a Happy New Year card from Kim. What a way to start off 2016! I love her use of doilies as a background! And all those sparkles  throughout the card remind me of the glittery ball dropping in Times Square – not that I’ve been, but I’ve seen it on TV. :)

Kim says:
I just love this robot stamp for so many occasions. It’s very versatile. I stamped them on cardstock, heat embossed in black, and colored with copic markers. I wanted the middle robot to be a girly robot in purple and all sparkly like she was dressed up for a New Years Eve party! I added glitter glue to her dress, some adhesive pearls for a necklace, and some adhesive rhinestones to each robot to dress them up too. Then I layered the stamp image on a gray polka dot base card, with some purple doilies, several ribbons, and a sentiment to complete.

Happy New Year everyone!!

Kim Klinkovsky -wintertime

Kim’s created a great piece that’s more than a card – it’s a canvas! She’s combined two very wintery stamps and did a wonderful job.

Kim says:
It’s winter time! I wanted to create a home décor piece I could either put on canvas or frame. I started with these two gorgeous stamps on cardstock to create the scene and heat embossed it all in metallic gold to make it shimmer. I colored it in with copic markers, added some glossy accents for glass as the windows, added some icicle glitter glue, and shaved ice to really make it snowy. Tore the bottom edge, border punched the top with snowflakes, adhered to blue snowflake paper, and then adhered the whole piece to this lighter 12×12 snowflake paper. I added some stickers for a title, snowflakes, and words on the bottom. And scattered some adhesive rhinestones all over to make it complete.

Here’s a detail view – just look at all that snow!

Here’s a fun Santa Claus is coming to town card from Kim. She used the traditional red and green theme and I think what she did is just swell.

She writes:
I found this pattern paper that had a lot of my favorite holiday prints in rows all on one sheet and thought this is perfect for a holiday card. The sheet music reminds me of all the holiday songs we sing this time of year. The argyle print reminds me of holiday sweaters, and candy cane stripes. I wanted Santa at center stage and heat embossed him and the sign with metallic gold that has a touch of shimmer and colored with copic markers. Then I added just a touch of silver glitter glue to give his Santa’s suit a little sparkle. And I cut these wonderful glitter tree stickers and placed them at bottom of the page to look like Santa had just taken off.

Ho Ho Ho…Merry Christmas!

Here’s an adorable card from Kim Klinkovsky. She used little Abagail which she says “…is versatile for any holiday, any occasion, all year long.” She wanted to present her as a holiday hostess serving hot chocolate (oh what yum) to her guests and I think she did just that! She looks oh so cute in her little red dress with tinsel trim. And I just love all that’s going on with the prints, pom moms and other fun embellishments.

Here’s what Kim did:
I colored her with copic markers, glitter pens, cut her out, and adhered her with 3D pop dots for some dimension. Then I added some tinsel ribbon to her dress and her bow to mimic reindeer antlers. I colored her plate with a silver pen. Stamped two cups of hot chocolate, colored with Copic markers, cut them out, and adhered to the plate. Cheers! Eat, drink, & be merry!

Kim-Klinkovsky - Moose Xing

Here’s a wonderful Fall card sent in by Kim Klinkovsky!

Here’s what Kim says:
Happy Fall Y’all! I love this time of year when all the leaves change colors and the elk and moose come out in abundance. And this wonderful stamp reminds me of my Rocky Mountains with shimmery snow caps, lots of pine trees, lots of animals, and the beautiful sunsets.

I colored the background with dye inks and an H2O pen and the trees were colored with Copic markers. The snowy mountain top was colored with a white ball pen and a touch of glitter glue to make it sparkle. Then I added some flower soft to the ground for some texture and to look like fallen leaves. Stamped and heat embossed the Fall sentiment. I stamped the moose xing sign, colored with Copic markers, and cut it out. May you get outside, see a moose or two, and enjoy your Fall days.

Here’s a close up. Don’t you just love what she’s done with for the ground cover! I think the moose is going to love snacking.

Kim-Klinkovsky - graveyard

Here’s a fun card from Kim Klinkovsky. She went all out for this one using lots of spooky (but too cute) Halloween embellishments. Too fun! And check out the little detail picture below – she’s even included a little spider! EEEEEEK!

Here’s what Kim wrote:
Happy Halloween! I’ve been dying (Ha!) to use this graveyard embossing folder and loaded it with these adorable stamps to create this eerie scene. I layered some of my favorite pattern papers. Then stamped this wonderful image with the kids peeking around the wall, that went perfect with the graveyard. I colored them with Copic markers and glitter pens to make it sparkle. Used a brick wall embossing folder down the left side and colored with “brick red” dye ink. Stamped a tiny spider on the wall too and added some embellishments to make it complete.

Even though I want fall to be here, summer just won’t let go. Here’s a wonderful beach inspired card from Kim Klinkovsky. Don’t you just love all those cute little seashells?! Little Mara Mermaid has never looked so in her element.

Kim writes…”I was inspired to make this card by “The Lazy Days of Summer” being at the beach, gathering seashells, and dreaming of mermaids. I received all these precious shells and beads from my Mother-in-law and knew I wanted to use them with this adorable mermaid stamp. I colored her body with green and blue Copic markers and then added some diamond Stickles glitter glue all over her body, in her hair, and on the sun to really make it sparkle. And even though it’s Fall where I am, we are having an Indian Summer with 80 degree weather. So, we can still go and enjoy the beach or lake for a few more days.”
