Baby Card!

Good morning and welcome to another
fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge
Are you ready for another fun and krafty challenge to inspire you
and help get your creative juices flowing?
This week, krafty girl Danielle V is your hostess and her challenge theme for you is:
....FOR A BABY!
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 Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and products will earn you double entries!
The monthly prize is a 25$ voucher to the Krafty shop!!!
Woohoo! There are two ways to enter: you can link up your creation on the Kraftin’ Kimmie blog page.


For my card I used the super cute older stamp set called Welcome to the World, which was released in February of 2018. I love this one when it first came out and I still do now. I especially love this stamp, the stork carrying the new baby in it's beak. There are two other lovely main images and several sentiments. I especially like that it has a 'boy' and a 'girl' stamp. Not all sets have that. I used some lovely Wisteria Wonder card stock for the base and also for the image frame. The patterned paper is from the Nana's Nursery pad. I also used the sentiment 'It's A Boy' from the Baby Love stamp set, which was released at the same time as Welcome to the World.

Happy Stamping,
Nana Diana

I Love You Tons!

Hi everyone!  I sure can't say our weather has got any better here near London, Ontario, thank the Lord for air-conditioning!!

Well, today we are showcasing the awesome set 'Long In The Tooth' at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  Another super cute set featuring walruses, accessories and five hilarious sentiments.  I used this one of the three walruses and being silly, I added the beachball from the June stamp set 'Turtley Awesome', before sitting the adorable seagull on top of the ball.  I have been wanting to get back to making slimline cards for a very long time, so that's what I did today.  It was fun, I will be sure to do it again.  The card base is retired S.U. Baja Breeze, I matted Poppy Parade onto it and the patterned papers are Mermaid Dreams by Echo Park.  I used my narrow oval Spellbinders for the main image, the scalloped frame is also Poppy Parade.  I chose the sentiment 'Love You Tons' for this one, but can't wait to use the others on more cards.

Hope you like it, you will see lots more amazing cards as you hop around.  Hope to be back soon,

Stampin' Nana Diana

July Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Good morning all you crafty peeps!  Hope you are having a good one!  Here in S.W. Ontario, it is crazy hot and humid.  I think yesterday was a record high.

Well, this is my post for today, using the super cute 'Be A Mermaid' stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I love this set, there are so many beautiful mermaids, a merman, a dolphin and two manta rays, not to mention three little shells and three awesome sentiments.

I used one of the adorable mermaids along with one of the super cute rays.  Of course it is coloured with my trusty Copics and though you can't see it in the photo (rats), I have used Stickles on her hair adornments, tail and on the ray.  Also around the border on the image layer.  I used retired Kiwi Kiss for the card base, and matted also retired Pixie Pink outside of the patterned paper, which is from the Doodlebug 'Under the Sea' pad.  I added some Kiwi Kiss ribbon and a few pearly dots.  This card was lots of fun to make.

Hope you have a wonderful day and that you get to do some 'Happy Crafting'

April Krafty Peeks, Day One!!


Welcome to Day ONE of our April Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We are ready to celebrate and inspire you with
THREE new stamp sets, TWO new stencils, a brand new INK colour and some new Krafty DOTS!
Who's ready to celebrate SPRING?



We're kicking off the fun with a sweet new SPRING set from artist Neda Sadreddin and it's called.....
HERE COMES THE SUN!


I used the sweet image of the little girl with the bird on her hand. Also I added the happy sun image. The whole set is adorable, there is another image of the wee girl stepping in a puddle and the cutest little duck, also in a puddle. Then there are two little clouds and a couple of flowers. Also three lovely sentiments. I used 'Here Comes The Sun'. I know I will be using this set a lot. Anyway, I digress. I actually started this card for the challenge for this week, which was a recipe, to use two layers, a stencil and some red. I then realized I could not post it as the stamp set was not to be released until this weekend. I used the Kraftin' Kimmie stencil 'Sprinkles' with Sapphire Blue Glimmer Paste, it's so glittery IRL. My cardstocks are Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay and Barely Banana for the sun and sentiment. I added some cute flowery ribbon, some red gems and I think that's it.


As you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today you will see the HERE COMES THE SUN stamp set in action in combination with our all of our other awesome new APRIL Kraftin' Kimmie products!

You will spot our newest addition to the Krafty Kolours Hybrid Ink rainbow! It's an amazing dark royal purple named GORGEOUS GRAPE!
As always it will be available in full sized ink pads, mini cubes and ink refills!


We've got TWO brand new Krafty Stencils for this month's release to help accessorize your creations!
They are called RAINY DAY and BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLIES!


And of course, we are adding the perfect new coordinating Krafty Dots for this release! The package includes 66 enamel dots in varying sizes in 6 different colours!
These ones are called RAINY DAY DOTS!


You'll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of April Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends facebook group on Saturday, April 18th at 2 pm EST!

For today's Peek, I used the Chubby Clouds stencil, which is released this week along with the other goodies.

Challenge #516 - Combine Stamp Sets!


It was fun going through my Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps deciding which ones to put together.  I settled on the ,You Are A Squeakheart, set, using one of the very cute mice from that and I took the little snail bearing mail from the Love Bugs stamp set, just released a couple of weeks ago.  I used the little sentiment from the Love Bugs set too.  I hope it looks like he or she is delivering a letter or card to the mouse.  That was my intent anyway.

I used my very last sheet of Pixie Pink for this card.  It has long been retired.  I'm always sad when I finish up my retired card stocks.  Anyway, I digress.  I used it for the card base and also for the frame behined the sentiment. I used papers from a fabulous new pad from Kraftin' Kimmie's last Shop the Box and I didn't even realize before I opened it to use, that it had envelopes on some of the papers.  It's called Love Notes by Doodlebug.  I put a border of yellow card stock behind the main papers, then I used another design from that pad in yellow, matted on Poppy Parade.  I coloured the little cuties with my Copics, die cut the image with Spellbinders Labels V, then used the largest die in the set to make a Poppy Parade border behind it.  To finish it off, I put Yellow stickles all around the edge of the image and added a few red Kraftin' Kimmie Dots.

I think that's it.  That was fun, can't wait to make another card.  Now it's your turn to create something using two KK stamp sets.  You can do it!!

Happy Stampin',
Nana Diana

Kraftin' Kimmie Love/Friendship Challenge!

Hidee Ho stampers,

I can't believe I have not posted a card in here with my Kraftin' Kimmie stamps since October!  Ridiculous!

Well, I couldn't resist this challenge as the easiest cards for me to make are Friendship and Love ones.  For this one, I used the super cute Happy Hedge-hugs, which are being released today.  The stamps are all so cute and the sentiments are just as adorable, such as the one I used, which is 'Sending Hedge-hugs to you'.

For the pink matting, I sponged the new Daisy  (Petite Posies) stencil with the also new Crisp Crimson Kraftin' Kimmie Ink.   I coloured the main image with Copics, framed it in a rectangle die, then onto a Deckle edge frame.   I matted the pink layer onto some black CS, then onto a base of Cool Caribbean.  I added some sparkly ric rac and some matching Prima Flowers.  I know just who I'm sending this to.

Hope you have fun creating something using Love or Friendship as your inspiration.

Happy Stampin',
Nana Diana

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'.
