November Release and Krafty Hop!! Oh and Awesome Sale too!!

Well, here we are finally!!  Time for the newest Kraftin' Kimmie Release!  I have to say that I think this is one of the very best we have had.  As you will all know by now, we have the 6 Travel Girls from 6 different countries.  As always, our amazingly talented Annie Rodrigue has outdone herself.  She always manages to create the exact image Kimmie is looking for.

Next, we have the Off We Go set from Cheryl.  Lexi and Lucas are so adorable going to sleep overs and such.  Also Cheryl has made us a beautiful set of scriptural verses and matching images.  I love them, they are so perfect for a lot of the cards I make.

Last and by no means least are the Cute-a-saurus collection from the wonderful Emilie Goulet.  These are the cutest dinosaurs you will ever see.  Check out the gorgeous cards made by the Krafty Girls.

To top that all off, we have a wonderful new set of Trinkets with this Release and yes, you've guessed it, they are Travel Trinkets.  So lovely!!

As if that weren't enough, Kimmie is now having a GIANT sale.  I think I'm quite safe in saying this is the biggest sale ever.  I know because I spent an entire day with my darling daughter going through every stamp in every container.  Kim is not only putting current stamps on sale, but she is also bringing back some of her retired stamps and they will all be on sale!!  Wow!!  So check them out in case there are any you wanted and didn't get before they were retired before.  You may well find them among these.  You will find all of this and more at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

Well, now to my card.  I used Svetlana as I think she is my favourite of the Travel Girls.  I also used one of the Travel Trinkets on my card as a sentiment.  I used some 'It's the Little Things' patterned paper by Fancy Pants.  I love to use black on my cards, so these papers gave me the opportunity.  I was then able to use black for my card base and also for the frame around my image.

So that's my card, be sure to visit the rest of the Krafty Girls and see what creations they all have to show.  And don't forget to leave a comment on each and every blog as some lucky ladies will win packages of the new stamps!!  Woo Hoo!!

Happy stamping and commenting,

Kraftin' Kimmie November Previews!

Well Hi to everyone, it's been a busy week here at Kraftin' Kimmie Central, the big boss has been preparing for the November Release!!  We have some awesome images for you this month, I hope you are going to love them as much as I do.  Today we are showing you previews of  our new Travel Trinkets.  They are such fun to use, either as the focal point of your card or as your sentiment.  Now I'm a little weird, so I thought I'd use is with an older image and not really a travel one as such.  I thought it would be so cute to use the 'Enjoy the View' Trinket with the cute doggie from Canine Capers 2.  He does look like he's enjoying the view, doesn't he?  I love to see dogs looking out of car windows, they look so adorable.  I'm not sure that it's a really safe thing to do though!!

I used a card base of Tangerine Tango, matted some Early Espresso onto it, then some very doggified Max and Whiskers paper from Basic Grey.  I added a bone embellie and some beige twill tape.  The pup was coloured with my Copic Markers on Neenah White cardstock.  I stamped the Trinket onto some Whisper White using Tangerine Tango ink, then cut out a die in Early Espresso to set it on.  Hope you like this preview, be sure to see what all the other gals have for you and come back tomorrow for some more previews. You will find directions to the other gals blogs at Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog.

See ya later,
Diana

Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #154!

Good morning everyone!  I hope you have all woken to a beautiful and stress free Saturday!  This week our Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is to use the theme of food or drink on your card. Our very talented Krafty Kerry provided us with this weeks challenge.  I had a great time choosing this one as there are quite a lot of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps that are related to food and drink. 

I used the Baking Elf, is she not cute?  And doesn't her pie look delicious?  She was fun to colour with my Copics and I cut her out using one of my Nesties, then framed her using a larger one in Ruby Red, which is also the colour of the card base.  My patterned papers are Holly Jolly Christmas from EP.  I love the music sheet!  I matted the paper onto Wild Wasabi, then the red card base.  I also used one of the Trinkets from the Holiday Trinkets set, stamping it with Wild Wasabi ink, punching it out with my 1 3/8 circle punch, then setting it onto a frame made in Ruby Red, using one of my MFT dies.  I finished off with some ruby gems in the corners.

So now we would like you to create your own food and drink themed card or other crafty item.  One of your creations will be randomly chosen and if it's you, you will win the lovely Grace stamp, perfect for Christmas as she is baking her gingerbread cookies. 

Have fun and I'll be checking your beautiful entries during the week.

Happy crafting,
Diana
