Talk To The Animals! And Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps January Release!!

It's finally here!!! The RELEASE of our very first new stamp sets of 2016!!! And it's totally PAW-some!! wink emoticon
We've released ALL the new clear stamp sets that we've been previewing all week and we're celebrating with an amazing krafty HOP! So grab a nice hot beverage and put your feet up because you will need a few relaxing minutes to enjoy all the gorgeousness by our design team!!
We have two beautiful sets from artist, Annie Rodrigue called MINNIE, MAISIE & ME! and PURR-FECT PRINCESS!
There's a sweet new set by artist Cheryl Grant called
TALK TO THE ANIMALS!
We've got a very special set by artist Emilie Goulet called
A FURRY SURPRISE! What's extra special about this set is that Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps will be donating a portion of the sale of each of this set to a local non-profit animal rescue organization! We want to help take care of our furry friends who are in need of rescue!
Lastly we have two fun new sets from artist, Becky Pearce called A PURR-FECT DAY! and TOTALLY PAW-SOME!
I used Lulu chatting with the baby duck, along with her kitty!  This is from the Talk to the Animals set.  This was so much fun to make.  I used a yummy paper pad from Chickaniddy called Twirly Girly and some matching enamels hearts.  I didn't want a fancy layout as I love the paper I used for the background and I didn't want to cover too much of it up.  I used Pink and Light Green cardstock for the matting and the card base.  I also added some matching pink rick rack.  The sentiment, 'What's the News?' is from the same set along with several other very cute ones.
You will get to see ALL of the new sets in action as you sit back and enjoy the hop! Then head on over to the Krafty Shop because ALL of the new stamp sets are NOW AVAILABLE!

Hip, Hip, Hooray! It's Wonderful Wednesday!!

Well, Happy Wednesday to you lovely folks.  I have a card for today using Kraftin' Kimmie's Make A Wish stamp set.  I love this one, there are about 8 great sentiments, which you can use as the focal point on the front of your card or on the inside.

I made this card for my brother in England and I'm happy to say he really liked it.  I used the Hip Hip Hooray sentiment and the patterned paper is Doodlebug 'Fall Friends'.  It's just a simple card, as you can see.  The card stock is Tangerine Tango for the base and the matting on the rest is Old Espresso.  I added some turquoise twill tape behind the sentiment and a few metallic dots on the sentiment layer.  

Be sure to head on over to Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps to see some of the other fabulous stamps and other items in the shop.

Happy Stamping,
Diana

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps November Release and Blog Hop!!!


Good morning everyone!  Today is finally the day for the release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  I have to say, I just think the artists are doing a better and better job every month.  I just adore this whole release.

I just had to make a card with sweet Lucas sitting on a pile of books and reading along with his cute little kitty, from the Happiness is Reading set.  This stamp was lots of fun to colour with my trusty Copics.  The patterned paper is Enchanted Garden Collection from Bo Bunny.  The card base and most of the matting was done with a very old retired S.U. card stock called Orchid Opulence.  It matches perfectly with the Bo Bunny papers.  I used a matching doillie behind the image layer, which was placed on some pretty green patterned paper.  I added some twine and a few matching buttons as well.  I added the sentiment "Happiness is Reading" from the set, which includes a very cute Lulu, also reading.  There are 4 more sentiments with the set, all perfect for readers.

We have three amazing sets from artist, Becky Pearce including PERFECT PLANNER, OH CROP! and ONE CUP AT A TIME! Then we shared a sweet set for the readers in your life by artist, Cheryl Grant called HAPPINESS IS READING! Then there's a fabulous TEEN set from artist Emilie Goulet called ‪#‎ALLSTAR‬! And lastly came that beautiful couple from artist, Annie Rodrigue called LET'S CELEBRATE!

You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our November Krafty Hop! When you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’Kimmie shop, because ALL the new CLEAR stamp sets are NOW available!! And don't forget...if you NEED it all, we have a Gimme Kimmies Kit which features ALL the new November stamps at a discount!! But only for a limited time!
We've also got lots of new holiday paper pads in the shop plus buttons, sequins, Wink of Stella, Liquid Applique and lots more! All set for those winter and holiday creations!
Now let's celebrate with our NEW RELEASE and get hoppin' and shoppin'!!

Happy crafting and happy hopping,

For my little creation, I used the little Elf girl in the Made By Elves set by Emilie Goulet, from the September Release.  I thought it worked so nicely with the sentiment from the new release's Christmas Cheer set.  I mean she is probably going to deck the halls with the popcorn, don't you think?  My card base was Smoky Slate to pick up the grey in my big snowflake die cut out.  The patterned papers are Doodlebug Home for the Holidays.  I matted the green polka dotted square onto some Poppy Parade card stock, which I also used for the Deck the Halls sentiment.  I added some Lime Green stickles around the image layer and put some red gems above the image and also on the grey snowflake.  Such fun!  I know I will be using all these lovely Christmas sentiments on my cards, there are 8 altogether and they are perfect.

Wonderful Wednesday and it's Fall!!

It's Wonderful Wednesday time!! We hope you can play along!! As always....it's ANYTHING GOES!! Break out your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and get krafty!!
I have been having so much fun with this one of the stamps from the Spooktacular set.  I love making fall cards and I know this is going to become an all time favourite of mine.  I used a card base of Tangerine Tango by S.U.  I stamped the image with Old Olive onto some cream card stock.  Using my Spellbinders, I cut it out, then matted it onto some more Tangerine Tango.  Then I framed it all with some old olive, using my Scallop edge Nesties.  I even tried using some Frantage on it, which you can't see very well in the photo, but I am happy with the result.  I used patterned papers from Bo Bunny called Enchanted Harvest.  I added some orange Sprinkles on the green papers and finished off with an orange gingham ribbon.  Love it, I know just whom to send it to.
There are only a few of the Halloween & the Holiday Kard Kits left... get yours before they are gone!

Omigoodness!! It's Time For A Very Special New Release From Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

This is my sample card for the new Kraftin' Kimmie Christmas Card Kit.  Kimmie gave me a portion of a kit to make this and in fact I had lots left over.  You can see the special stamp, which is being released just for the kit.  Isn't it the most adorable Santa and elf image you have ever seen?  I love it!!
I coloured the image with my ever trusty Copic markers, then matted it onto some rich dark green card stock, which comes with the kit.  I used one sheet of the patterned papers for my background, which is also matted onto the dark green, then onto a card base of cream.  I used some of my other sheet of patterned paper to make the strips, which I matted onto a yummy red card stock, which also came with my little mini kit.  I stamped one of the lovely sentiments onto red and punched it out with my ticket punch.  Then I added some of the lovely red and white twine and added a couple of mini gold jingle bells.  The finishing touch was three wood veneer stars in different sizes.  Easy peasy!!


 This was so much fun, can't wait to make another Christmas card with this very cute image.
Be sure to hop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop and check out all the wonderful papers, cardstocks and embellishments you'll get in this kit, as well as the fabulous new CLEAR stamp set called NO PEEKING! And don't forget to check out all the other NEW stamp sets and goodies in the shop!
Happy hoppin'!

Kraftin' Kimmie's September Release!! Day Two.


Hey everyone!! Welcome back to day TWO of our SEPTEMBER Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!!! All of our brand new CLEAR stamp sets will be released on Saturday night!! Are you excited? Are you coming to the party?? Woohoo!
The super sweet stamp set that we're previewing today is from artist Cheryl Grant and it's called ANGEL VOICES!!!It features our fave kiddos, Lexi, Lulu and Lucas, plus a couple of their furry friends and they are going caroling!!! The set also include a star accessory stamp plus two sweet sentiments!

I just made a simple little A2 sized card using the little singing puppy accessory stamp from the Oh, Hear the Angel Voices set.  I didn't have time to do a lot of colouring, so I just stamped him up and added a halo stamp from one of Kimmie's older angel sets.  I admit, the halo is a little large, but he'll grow into it, don't you think?  I used some gorgeous patterned paper from the Bo Bunny Snowfall pad.  It matched beautifully with some light brown card stock, which I used to mat everything.  I used some vanilla cardstock for the image and also for the card base.  I used one of the sentiments from the set, 'Oh, hear the Angel Voices' and the other one is 'Do You Hear What I Hear?', which I think would have worked as well.  There is also a little singing kitty in the set and I can't wait to do something similar with it.  The main images in the set are three separate caroling children so the possibilities are endless.

All the Krafty Girls listed below have lots of super FUN designs to show you featuring these awesome new stamps from Cheryl! And while you're hopping around, be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away a gift voucher!!! You could WIN some Krafty $$$ to spend at the shop!!!! There will be one winner from all the comments this week and they will be announced at the party!

So Happy Hopping and Happy Crafting,
Diana

Wonderful Wednesday and I'm the Hostess!



Well, it's Wonderful Wednesday again and I am the hostess for this week's Challenge, which as usual on a Wednesday, is Anything Goes!  It couldn't be any simpler, could it?
This time, I made a card using one of the Pretty As A Princess set of stamps.  This one is perfect for my sweet little granddaughter, who turns 6 next week.  
I coloured the cute image using my Copics, as usual and I doodled around the edge of the frame.  All my matting was done using Ballet Blue and the card base is Barely Banana!  I don't know what I'll do when I run out of the retired S.U. card stock.  I still love Barely Banana.  I used some American Crafts 'Heartland Farm' patterned papers, added some blue stitched ribbon, blue enamel dots and I stamped the 'Happy Birthday Princess' sentiment above the image layer.  I hope she likes it.

Are you going to come and party with Kimmie and the Krafty Girls?? The Krafty Koffee Krop is this Saturday!  Oh!! Kimmie's also announced a Christmas Holiday Card Kit!!!

Fall at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!



Good morning everyone and I hope you are having a great Saturday!
As you can see, this week's challenge is Fall, so this is an opportunity for you to make a fall card for you to send to someone special.  I already have someone in mind for this one.  It's just a simple effort as the lovely paper from EP The Story Of Fall did most of the work for me.  I usually like to keep my cards fairly simple anyway, so I matted the pretty piece onto some Old Olive, then onto some Dusty Durango card stock.  The main image is a beautiful sentiment from the new Spooktacular Sentiments set.  I used some of my Nesties dies, matting the image layer onto some more Dusty Durango.  I added some matching polka dot ribbon, a couple of very cute autumn leaves from Fall Medley button embellishments by Dress it Up.  That's all I did, sometimes it's great when the patterned paper does most of the work for you.

Have you joined to Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Friends fb group yet?  There is always so much going on and you can share your creations in there for everyone to see and you can see the cards etc. from so many other gifted crafters for inspiration.

Now, let's see your fall creations for a chance to win some Kraftin' Kimmie rubber.  Just link your piccie to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog.

Happy Stampin'
