I just made a simple little card using one of the little birdies from the 'You're So Tweet' set.  I love these little guys.  I made an A2 size card for a change and my patterned papers are Peace, Joy, Love from Fawn Lawn.  I had fun colouring the little bird and making an easy card.  Sometimes it's good to do that.

**Please note that you are more than welcome to combine this Share to Win challenge with other challenges, BUT not our regular weekly challenges. This must be a new and different creation than anything you create for our Saturday challenges.

We're so excited! It’s our FEBRUARY RELEASE Day at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!! And we’re celebrating with a KRAFTY HOP!! So grab yourself a cuppa joe, sit back and be prepared for some krafty eye kandy! We're going to inspire your creations with our fun, new stamps!

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of AMAZING new stamps from all our artists for our February release! We’ve got something for everyone!! We’ve got a purr-fectly sweet new KITTY CAT set from Thai called FELINE GREAT! There's an awesome new NERDY set from Cheryl called SMARTY PANTS! Lastly, we are SO excited to share a SASSY new Moonlight Whispers stamp set....GLAMOUR GIRLS!

You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our FEBRUARY Krafty Hop! 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 don't forget...if you NEED it all, we have a Gimme Kimmies Kit which features ALL the new February stamps at a discount!!

For my card I used one of the delightful stamps from the Feline Great set.  This little fella is in heaven, he's holding a ball of yarn and dreaming of fish.  So cute!!  After colouring him, I cut him out using my Labels One Nesties, then I used a larger one of the dies to cut a red frame, then another one to 'shadow' it using some retired Marigold Morning.  I used some gorgeous patterned papers from s.e.i. called Corinne.  I used the sentiment 'What's Mew Pussycat', which is one of several very clever ones that come in the set.  I added a few Prima flowers and I scattered some pale blue and some red half pearls around.  I am actually quite happy with this card.  I think it's the colour combo that pleases me.

Now let's celebrate with our NEW RELEASE and get hoppin' and shoppin'!!

I used the very cute boy from the Smarty Pants 2 set.  It comes with 3 studious little kids and several awesome sentiments.  I love the Talk Nerdy To Me one.  I'm not usually one for those kinds of sayings, but I do like this one.  I used  some perfect papers from Alison Kreft called Sweet Notes.  I love the pattern with all the books.  As always I coloured my image with Copics, then I cut it out using a Nesties Die.  I used some more of the papers behind him and did all of my matting using Rose Red.  The card base is kraft.  My dear daughter, Kraftin' Kimmie found some awesome embellies for nerdy type images and so I added a couple of them.

It's That Time Again!! It's Wonderful Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Welcome to our first Wonderful Wednesday challenge for the month of February!! And as always....it's ANYTHING GOES!!
Your submission must use at least one Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp but can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item....you name it!! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on this post until Tuesday, February 11th!! What do you think.....wanna WIN??...


Well, since it was my dear daughter Kraftin' Kimmie's birthday yesterday, I had an excuse to make a card just for her.  I used Lexi holding a balloon from the adorable Together is Better set.  I chose papers from Happy Days by Papermania to pick up my colours from.  These were a Christmas gift from Kimmie.  I found some lovely Groovy Guava card stock, which is long retired, but I love it.  It's a perfect match for the patterned papers.  I also used some Basic Grey for matting as it's nice and dark and contrasty and matches the grey in the papers also.  I also managed to locate my Groovy Guava stitched ribbon, so I used that too.  I used some gorgeous grey fancy gem strips, which were a Christmas gift from my wonderful team mate Melanie.  I thought they worked perfectly.

Now let's see your creations, Wonderful Wednesdays are so easy because it's always 'anything goes'.  Have lots of fun stamping.
