Finish the Inside of Your Card Challenge!!


 Welcome to another fun Krafty Challenge!
Are you ready for some krafty fun??
We want you all to play along and we love to see your creations so let's get KRAFTY!
This week we want you to 
FINISH THE INSIDE OF YOUR CARD!   
For my card I used the sweet fairy from the Magical Friends set.  To decorate the inside, I used some of  the patterned paper from the same Crate Paper Botanical Gardens pad that I used on the card front.  I cut the message area out of the same pink card stock I used for the card base.  I added a few little black gems to pretty it up a bit.  I do love decorating the insides of my cards, but don't often take the time.  So that's my little effort.
Submit your krafty design for your chance to WIN! You have until Friday, June 29th to enter this challenge! Keep in mind, all entries are welcome but you must use a
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp in order to win.
Each Saturday we post a new challenge and you can enter as many times as you like!!! And each submission during the month will enter you into the monthly prize which will be....
a $40 gift voucher to spend in the krafty shop!!!
What do you think? Worth playin' for?

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',

Spring!! Where is it?

Welcome to another great Krafty Challenge!
For those of us that just got dumped with MORE SNOW and that's us!! .....we really need this theme! haha!
This week's challenge is all about SPRING!!!
For my card, I used one of the adorable bunnies from the Hoppy Friends set, which was released in March 2017.  For my card base, I used Calypso Coral, also for the matting of the strip on the right and the sentiment, which is also from the Hoppy Friends set.  The matting of the patterned papers is Gumball Green and the papers are Weekend Adventure from Bo Bunny.  I finished up with some matching Prima flowers.  I hope it looks like spring.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! This week it's all about LOVE!!

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.
Create a card, scrapbook page, altered item etc. with a SUMMER theme and submit your design for your chance to WIN! You have until Friday, February 2nd to enter this challenge! Keep in mind, all entries are welcome but you must use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp in order to win.
