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',

The day of love is quickly approaching and whether you have a husband or wife, a boyfriend or girlfriend, some furry babies, your grandma....we need to tell people that we LOVE them all the time!! So our challenge this week is LOVE and HEARTS!!
I used the stamp set Furry Angels for my love card.  I so love this set as I always want to send a card to friends or family who have lost a pet.  I know this is rather a sad card, but I don't think you can find a situation with more love involved.  I went with gentle pastel colours for my creation, using long retired S.U. Almost Amethyst and True Thyme.  There is also an angel kitty in this set, three lovely sentiments and a set of paw prints.

Wow!! Wonderful Wednesday again.

Well, this time for Wonderful Wednesday, I thought it was time to make another Christmas card.  I so love these little reindeer.  They work so well for many different things.  They are from the Reindeer Games set and there are four designs, all of which are so cute and there are several adorable accessory stamps such as a yule log, a north pole sign, a hat, star and a couple of little presents.  Also there is a gorgeous little log cabin scene.  On top of that, there are five sweet sentiments, all of which are perfect.  In fact I have a bunch of these little guys cut out and ready to go on Christmas tags.  So cute!!

Okay, so I used S.U. Pool Party for my card base and matted the Santa Express patterned paper onto Poppy Parade cardstock.  I used one of the sentiments from the set, 'Sending You Warm Thoughts This Christmas' on one of the strips of cardstock and added some Sprinkles Shapes holly near the top.

Now don't forget to create your own WW item and enter it for a chance to win some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  Happy Stampin'

The Magic of Christmas!

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

The theme this week is Magic.  I thought it was a great way to use the KK 'Believe In The Magic Of Christmas' sentiment from the lovely set of sentiments from September 2015, The Magic of Christmas  I love this set, there are eight wonderful sentiments, which can be used as the focal point on your card or as the inside sentiment.  I love sentiments and tend to use them a lot on the front of my cards, it's especially handy if you are in a hurry and don't have time to colour up an image.

I used the patterned papers from a gorgeous pad called A Christmas Story from First Edition papers.  They are so vintage and take me back to a simpler time.  I used the gorgeous holly die cut  on the left.  The card stock is long retired True Thyme, which works perfectly with the papers.  I used it for the card base too and for one of the layers behind the sentiment.  The red I used is also retired Ruby Red, which I love.  So many of the retired S.U. card stocks are my favourites.  I added a Prima poinsettia for an extra little pop.

Well, we always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!! You can enter as many times per month as you'd like!!
Have you joined the Kraftin Kimmie's Krafty Friends fb group?? It's the best place to keep up with all of the goings on as well as sharing YOUR creations and getting inspired by other Krafty Friends' creations!!!

That's it from me,
Happy Stampin'

Wonderful Wednesday with Owls!!

Good morning, stampers!  Well, it's Wonderful Wednesday time again.  Today I have a little card I made using the Kraftin' Kimmie stamp set You're A Hoot This lovely set has four different adorable owls, three sentiments and several other stamps, one of them being the branch my owls are sitting on.  I have used these two owls to make anniversary cards, Hallowe'en cards and all sorts.  They are so versatile.

The card base and image background use S.U. Marigold Morning.  The other colours of cardstock I used are Kiwi Kiss and retired Ruby Red. I used some GG ribbon, metallic dots and I even used eyelets.

Don't forget to show us YOUR WW creations.

Happy stampin'

Fall Colours Challenge!


Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
So the challenge this week is Fall Colours.  I love making Fall cards, so I really wanted to do this one.  I used one of the stamps from Harvest Blessing, which was released in August 2016.  I wanted to try colouring on kraft paper, I don't know if I ever have done so before.  I kind of like it.  The card base is also kraft paper and I matted with Kiwi Kiss and Pumpkin Pie from S.U.  The patterned papers I used are called Fall Friends from Doodlebug.  The sentiment Happy Autumn is also from the same set.  Perfect for a simple fall card.
We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!!
