Hello and welcome to another fun
Saturday Challenge!
This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, Sabrina and
your challenge theme is....
FLOWERS!
Each and every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and you are welcome to enter as many times as you like! These must be new creations and you are welcome to use any stamp, however using a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp will earn you double entries! Each submission will enter you into the monthly draw of a $40 gift voucher to the krafty shop!
We've also got a fun sketch to inspire you for the month of January! You don't have to use it but it's there for you to use if you need a little kickstart....feel free to use it any time!

I made a simple card using one of the oh so cute bears from the set Beary Love.  I also used one of the newly released stencils, this one is Happy Hearts.  I sponged the stencil using the also newly released ink pad, called Pretty in Pink.  The bear is set on a  Labels Spellbinder die, which is pop dotted onto another circular die, repeating the hearts theme.  I then added a couple of Prima flowers.
Don't miss our Frugal Friday Specials!! There is a selection of our fabulous stamp sets on SALE 40% OFF but only for the weekend and only while supplies last!

Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping,

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps January Release Previews. Day 1

Welcome to the FIRST release of this brand new year at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
This is Day ONE of our January Krafty Peeks and we are over the moon excited to share everything with you! We've got new stamp sets, new stencils, new ink, a BRAND NEW PRODUCT and we're thrilled to be introducing you to our NEW ARTIST!
Hang on tight...'cause here we go!
The first set for January that we are sharing with you is called YOU ARE SUPER and is from our brand new artist, Neda Sadreddin!
We all have women and girls in our lives who are superheros to us and to others! Just by being themselves as a Mom, a Grandma, a Friend...and we need to tell them more often how AWESOME we think they are! So here comes the perfect stamp set! It features a main full sized image plus two portrait sized images in different super cute poses! You can add a mask and even different letters to her chest to make it personal for the recipient! There are several sentiments and options to create your own! I think you'll agree this is a fabulous first set from Neda!
I felt I wanted to use soft colours on my card as I have somebody in mind to send it to.  I used the portrait stamp of the winking Super girl, who I have called Friend, hence the F on her outfit.  I uded some pretty pink card stock for the base and also for the background around her.  I also used some S.U. Pool Party for matting and for the frame around her.  The actual background was made using Kraftin' Kimmie's new to be released stencil Harlequin.  I sponged it onto a white background using the new, also being released Pretty Pink Ink.   It's so lovely to work with, I can't wait to use the other hearts stencil, also being released this coming weekend.  I added a sentiment, 'Super Friend', which amongst others is also in the stamp set.  I added a few enamel dots and some flowers, just to finish it off.
You'll get to see ALL of our new goodies in action over the next few days of January Krafty Peeks and they'll all be released at our LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday, January 12 at 2pm EST in the Krafty Friends group!
For now, hop around and check out some samples from our incredible Krafty Team! You might spot some other new goodies while you're hopping around....and Kim will tell you more about them tomorrow!! So come on back!

Happy Stamping,
Nana Diana

Welcome to another fun Krafty Challenge!
Are you ready for some krafty fun??
We want you all to play along and we love to see your creations so let's get KRAFTY!
This week is all about....
EMBOSSING!!
I have made a simple card using the fabulous Holiday Village set of stamps, which has so many cute houses, church, trees, snowflakes etc.  It also has five great sentiments.  This was such an easy card to whip up using one of the houses and the super little reindeer and Santa stamp.  I embossed the background layers with one of my snowflake embossing folders, pop dotted the main image, added some green ribbon, a snowflake charm and I heat embossed one of the sentiments in white on red cardstock, then added some red gems.
Every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and you can enter as many times as you like! Each submission will enter you into the monthly prize......which is a $40 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

Out of This World again!

I have made a shaker card using the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps 'Out of this World' set.  I love this little guy and he or she is suitable for so many occasions and for grown ups or kidlets.  There are three adorable main images and three lovely sentiments, as well as several stars and a partial planet to stand them on.  I didn't use the planet as it would not be visible under the sequins. 

I used a white card base and all the rest of the card is made using Doodlebug 'Hallowe'en Parade patterned paper pad. 

I hope to post a card a lot sooner the next time.

Happy Stamping,
NanaDiana

Out Of This World!

Well, first of all, I have to apologize for posting so rarely these days.  So many issues seem to get in the way of what I really love to do.  And I'm retired!!  I'm obviously doing something wrong.





Welcome back to Day FIVE of our AUGUST Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Today is the final day of peeks and the release party is

THIS AFTERNOON at 1pm EST on Facebook!
Are you going to join in and help us
celebrate ALL the new sets?

There's no stamp set on the planet quite like this one
from artist Cheryl Grant!
It's called OUT OF THIS WORLD!


Now don't forget!!! It's also CHALLENGE DAY and as always, during release week the theme is ANYTHING GOES!!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp!! Use any sketch, any design, any embellishments because Anything Goes! Have some krafty fun and join us this week because we'd LOVE to see your KKS designs. You have a week to play with this challenge (until August 24th) and at the end of the month, we'll announce a WINNER from all of the weekly challenges for all of August! We hope you can play along for your chance to WIN a $40 Gift Certificate to use on ANYTHING you want in the shop!! Wanna win??


My card uses the little round guy with his tongue out.  There are two other adorable little aliens or monsters or whatever you would like them to be.  I can't wait to ink them up too, I think I am going to use them for Hallowe'en cards for my grandchildren.  There are two other sentiments besides the one I used on my card.  There are also some stars and part of a planet for them to stand on.  Such a great set.  Anyway, I digress.  For my card base, I used S.U. Gumball Green and all of the matting was made with long retired Only Orange, which I still love.  The patterned paper I used is called Hip Hip Hooray and it's from Doodlebug.  I added a few star buttons, some blue ribbon and my sentiment is on a punched oval of the Gumball Green.  This was such a fun card to make.

All the Krafty Design Team members listed below have lots of super sweet creations to share with you today featuring the OUT OF THIS WORLD stamp set! Be sure to hop around and leave lots of love at each and every stop because one lucky commenter will WIN a gift voucher to the shop! The winner will be announced at the LIVE Online Release Party

Finish the Inside of Your Card Challenge!!


 Welcome to another fun Krafty Challenge!
Are you ready for some krafty fun??
We want you all to play along and we love to see your creations so let's get KRAFTY!
This week we want you to 
FINISH THE INSIDE OF YOUR CARD!   
For my card I used the sweet fairy from the Magical Friends set.  To decorate the inside, I used some of  the patterned paper from the same Crate Paper Botanical Gardens pad that I used on the card front.  I cut the message area out of the same pink card stock I used for the card base.  I added a few little black gems to pretty it up a bit.  I do love decorating the insides of my cards, but don't often take the time.  So that's my little effort.
Submit your krafty design for your chance to WIN! You have until Friday, June 29th to enter this challenge! Keep in mind, all entries are welcome but you must use a
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp in order to win.
Each Saturday we post a new challenge and you can enter as many times as you like!!! And each submission during the month will enter you into the monthly prize which will be....
a $40 gift voucher to spend in the krafty shop!!!
What do you think? Worth playin' for?

AND we've also rereleased a super sweet RETIRED stamp set, WORLD OF WONDER by artist Emilie Goulet! So if you missed it when it was released in 2013, you can snap it up now!

Happy Stampin' and have a Happy Weekend.

I had so much fun making a card with one of the super cute otters, from the newly released set From The Otter Side.  I used So Saffron for my card base and Soft Sky for all the matting and my wave border.  The patterned paper is Perfectly Plaid Chill from Lawn Fawn.  I added some buttons and linen thread and I used one of the fabby sentiments from the set, Hello From the Otter Side.  It was perfect as I have sent the card to my son, who lives in Edmonton, while we are in South Ont.  It's kind of the Otter Side, isn't it?

Happy shoppin'!

These little bees and accessories are so super cute and fun to colour up in no time flat.  I just made a 6 x 6 card using two of the little bee images and one of the sentiments and they are all great.  I managed to find some of my Barely Banana, even though it's been retired for a few years.  I used it for the base and used Soft Sky for the matting.  I cut out the bees with my Spellbinder circles and framed them using Spellbinders Scallop Circles.  The patterned papers are Spring Things by Doodlebug.  I also added a little bee button and a few sequins.  That's it!  Oh, and I even used the sketch for February.  At least my version of it.


Happy Stamping and be sure to leave comments for a chance to win some of the awesome new stamps.

This is my effort using the just re-released Fairy Trinkets from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I also used two of the gorgeous images from the set Magical Friends

The card base and trinket frame are S.U. Flirty Flamingo.  I matted Baja Breeze onto the base and coloured the images with Copics.  The patterned papers are Secret Garden by Kaisercraft.  The ribbon is Flirty Flamingo too.  Such fun to play with these stamps and so many ways to use them.

Happy Stampin',
