Do YOU know what day it is???  It’s Krafty RELEASE Day and it’s our last release of the year!!  Today Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new DECEMBER stamps and there’s SO much awesomeness to SEE!!   

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of FUN new stamps for you to get inky with!  We’ve got something for everyone!! There is a fun new SET by Cheryl Alger for the little ladies in your life!!  It’s called SUGAR AND SPICE!  We also have TWO fantastic sets of VALENTINES from Emilie Goulet called LOTS OF LOVE 1 AND LOTS OF LOVE 2!!!  And of course we have an amazing new set of six ALICE IN WONDERLAND stamps from Annie Rodrigue!  PLUS we are also releasing a coordinating set of WONDERLAND SENTIMENTS!!
You will get to see most of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our DECEMBER Krafty Hop!  If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog!  As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of these incredible stamps from the new release!!  And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available! 

And of course, as always, we have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’!!  (You’ve been buying presents for everyone else all month long….don’t you think it’s time to reward your krafty self a little bit??!! ) The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time!!

Okay, so today I am using the Princess stamp from Lots of Love 1.  Isn't she just too cute?  She is just perfect for a Valentine card.  I had so much fun colouring her and also using my Die-namics Fancy Flourish die, which I must confess my dear daughter gave me a few months back and I haven't been able to remember to use it!!  I love it though and I'm sure I will remember it from now on.  I used some lovely S.U. Raspberry Tart DP and took my colours from there.  My cardstocks are Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose and Melon Mambo, which went perfectly with the papers.  I did some stitching using the Kiwi Kiss colour.  Lucky for me I had some thread that was a match.  I also had some lovely metallic pink dew drops, which were also a great match.

So I'm assuming you have come from the blog of the fabulous Beate and from here you go to the blog of our fantastic artist Annie, creator of our Moonlight Whispers.  Be sure to leave a comment at each of our blogs for more chances to win some of this new, awesome rubbah!!  Happy Hopping,
Diana

December Sneaky Peeks!!



Okay, so I didn't make a card for yesterday's peeks, but I have made one for today.  Today at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps we are featuring Emilies' adorable images.  I plumped for the cute panda and he makes a great Valentine panda, so I used some hearts on this card.  Actually quite a lot of hearts.  This little guy is one of the Lots of Love 1 set.  The other stamps are a princess and a couple of cute kissing fishies.  They are all gorgeous and I can't wait to ink the rest of them up. 

I stayed traditionally Valentine with this, basically because I wanted to use this yummy patterned paper.  Actually I've had it so long, I don't know who made it.  Anybody know?  I used the pinks and reds in the paper and this was the result.  I'm sure I can find someone to send it to. 

Tomorrow the girls are showing the fantastic new Annie images, you will love them.  Go to Kraftin' Kimmies' Challenge Blog to see who has made a lovely creation with Annie's new Moonlight Whispers.  I will be back for the blog hop on Sunday, when we all get to use whichever artists' stamps we like.  Be sure to come back for that and don't forget to leave a comment at each of our blogs each day until then too.  Today's two winners will each be the lucky recipients of one of the sets of Emilie stamps, so what do you have to lose, right?

So Happy Stamping and I'll see you soon,

Embossing, Heat or Dry, take your pick!!

Hi everyone, I wish you a happy Saturday and a great weekend altogether. 

This week, I am the hostess for the challenge at Kraftin' Kimmies' and I would like you to use either heat embossing or dry embossing on your creations.  I love to heat emboss, but for this card I did some dry embossing.  I used the lovely Takara and her little dragon for my image.  I used some Basic Grey Ambrosia patterned papers.  I love the grey and oranges together.  As you can see, I embossed the 'sun' circle.  I used 'Musical Flourish' embossing folder.  My cardstock colours are Basic Grey and Tangerine Tango.  I also used some Basic Grey Taffeta ribbon.

So if you join in this week's challenge, which I hope you do, the stamp you will have a chance to win is Takara.  The challenge is open till next Friday, so you have a week to join in.  Be sure to link up your cards to Kraftin' Kimmies' Challenge Blog.

Also, just a reminder that Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is doing the Frugal Friday thing again and the stamps this week, all of which are 40-50% off, are Mr. Punkinhead, Rudy the Reindeer, Billy Blyth (the pirate), Speedy the Turtle, Roxy and You Are A Treat.

Happy Stamping,
Diana
