Black and White Challenge!

Hello and welcome to another fun
Saturday Challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Are you ready for some krazy krafty fun?
We can't wait for you to play along and share your amazing krafty kreations! We are here to inspire your creativity!

Good morning all you lovely crafters.  It's a very cool day here in South Ontario, fall is definitely here.

As you see by the title, our challenge this week is Black and White.  This really was a bit of a challenge for me, but hopefully this is okay.  I used the adorable little fox from the 'Good In The Woods'set, which was released last April.  Of course the card base and the mattings are all done in
Basic Black.  I used Kraftin' Kimmie's Pawprints Stencil.  I think they could be fox pawprints just as well as dogs'.  I used Spellbinders square and rectangular dies and matching scallops ones.  I used the sentiment from the set 'May the Forest Be With You', which I think is so cute.  I added a few black and white flowers and there we are.

Don't forget to send in your take on a Black and White card, we love to see them and you may win some KK clear stamps for your efforts.  Also be sure to check out the creations from the rest of the team, there are some real beauties from these talented people.

Happy Stampin'.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge! Shapes.

Well, good Saturday morning, I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It certainly has a feeling of fall in the air where we live.

As the title says, the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge for this coming week is Shapes.  There are so many different things you can do with this.  You can do a different shaped base for your card, you can use all sorts of different shapes on the actual card, the mind boggles.  Mine is not terribly creative as I made it before this challenge came up and it seemed to fit.  If I had more time, I think I would have been more inventive.  I can't wait to see what your ideas are for the Shapes Challenge.

I love to create using the sentiment stamps, so I used this one from the Pumpkin Kisses stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment in brown as I used cream cardstock and I like that combination.  The image layer uses a lovely narrow oval die that I've had for years and the frame around it is the matching scallop die and I used red for that  I pop dotted that layer onto a square of patterned paper and matted it onto orange C.S.  I added a strip on a different patterned but matching paper, matting it also onto orange.  It is all on a green card base with yet another matching paper, matted onto some of the red cardstock.  I added some fall coloured metallic dots and some linen thread.  Hope you like it.

Now be sure to enter your own creations  using Shapes, you have until next Friday.  You will be entered to win some Kraftin' Kimmie goodness, good luck.

Happy Stamping,
Nana Diana

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. Tags!!

Good morning to all you crafters out there.  As the title says, the challenge for this week over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is to use a tag, any way you want.  You can simply make a tag as I have done, or you can use a tag on another creation such as a card, or perhaps  in your scrapbooking.  I had not made a tag in a long time and I forgot how much fun it was.  Now I want to make more.

I used kraft card stock for mine, then I used the Kraftin' Kimmie Beautiful Burlap stencil all over the tag, Next, I used some Bo Bunny Pumpkin Glitter Paste unevenly on the KK Creepy Cobwebs and added a cute little brown spider on it.  I coloured up  the cute little boy troll from KK's Troll Trouble, sat him on the bottom, then I added some shiny brown ribbon to the top.

Hope you have fun making something using a tag.  You will have a chance to win some awesome Kraftin' Kimmie loot.

Happy crafting,
Nana Diana

August Release!! Pumpkin Kisses!


Good morning everyone!  It's that time again, the new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps release is here.  So many wonderful stamps to choose from.

I used the Happy Thanksgiving stamp from the set Pumpkin Kisses.  Perfect for making a simple or a more complex card for your friends and family for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I love making cards using the sentiment of a verse as the focal point.

I used cream cardstock for the stamped sentiment and also for the card base.  The patterned paper I used is Pumpkin Patch from American Crafts.  For the matting, I used Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie.
I added some cute tiny fall leaf buttons and a couple of flowers .
Everything is NOW available at the krafty shop! All the new products are available individually but if you HAVE to have it ALL this month, you can pick up our GIMME KIMMIES KIT which contains one of EVERYTHING we released this month and at a discount but for a limited time!

My card uses one of the stamps from the Cuddles the Puppy set and I am sending it to my grandson as a Valentine card.  He has a very cute grey puppy, so I thought this would be perfect.  As always, I coloured the image with Copics and used a few dies, two matching ones to frame the image as well as the Decagon for the image.  I used another die to frame the sentiment.  For the background I used the great newly released Puppy Pawprints stencil, perfect for this stamp.  I sponged using the Kraftin' Kimmie Bubbly Blue Ink.  I used the sentiment from an older release, called Happy Thoughts.  It has some great sentiments in it too.  The card stock I used is a pale blue and a gorgeous red called Poppy Parade.  Lastly I added a grey puppy button.
Next is the super sassy ladies from the
A DOG'S LIFE stamp set by Emilie!
And the last clear stamp set is a delicious set of yummy-ness called DONUT WORRY from artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen!

I used two of the very cute puppy images from the Cuddles the Puppy set.  I did that because I made the card for my DD Kimmie's birthday and she has two gorgeous chihuahua pups.  Not quite the same, but pretty close.  I also coloured the girls' hair mauve because that is the shade of Kimmie's hair right now!  I also sponged the background using the new awesome stencil being released this weekend, I sponged it using the gorgeous Charming Chartreuse ink, also being released.  The card stock I used is the retired S.U.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge - Layers


Hi and welcome to this week's Krafty Challenge.  This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, Melany and
your challenge theme is.... LAYERS!
For my card, I used another of the super cute images from the Out Of This World stamp set.  I just love using them, they are such fun and you can colour them any way you want to.  With my trusty Copics, I coloured him up and cut him out using an oval Spellbinders die.  I doodled around the edge of the image, then matted it onto some of the patterned paper I was using, which is from Doodlebug and called So Much Pun.  I used Basic Black for my card base, then matted the rest with bright yellow.  I stamped 'You're My Favourite Earthling', which is one of three cute sentiments onto some red card stock. I added some matching royal blue satin ribbon and I was done.  Don't you love the cute spaceship and alien paper?

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.

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,
