August Release!! Pumpkin Kisses!


Good morning everyone!  It's that time again, the new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps release is here.  So many wonderful stamps to choose from.

I used the Happy Thanksgiving stamp from the set Pumpkin Kisses.  Perfect for making a simple or a more complex card for your friends and family for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I love making cards using the sentiment of a verse as the focal point.

I used cream cardstock for the stamped sentiment and also for the card base.  The patterned paper I used is Pumpkin Patch from American Crafts.  For the matting, I used Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie.
I added some cute tiny fall leaf buttons and a couple of flowers .
Everything is NOW available at the krafty shop! All the new products are available individually but if you HAVE to have it ALL this month, you can pick up our GIMME KIMMIES KIT which contains one of EVERYTHING we released this month and at a discount but for a limited time!
Happy hoppin' and happy shoppin'!

February Release and Hop Day!

Today we are celebrating ALL the new goodies from our February Release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
All THREE new clear stamp sets are NOW available over at the Krafty Shop, along with our Charming Chartreuse inks, TWO new stencils and our new Rainbow Krafty Dots!
First up is the incredible new set from our new artist, Neda Sadreddin called....CUDDLES THE PUPPY!
My card uses one of the stamps from the Cuddles the Puppy set and I am sending it to my grandson as a Valentine card.  He has a very cute grey puppy, so I thought this would be perfect.  As always, I coloured the image with Copics and used a few dies, two matching ones to frame the image as well as the Decagon for the image.  I used another die to frame the sentiment.  For the background I used the great newly released Puppy Pawprints stencil, perfect for this stamp.  I sponged using the Kraftin' Kimmie Bubbly Blue Ink.  I used the sentiment from an older release, called Happy Thoughts.  It has some great sentiments in it too.  The card stock I used is a pale blue and a gorgeous red called Poppy Parade.  Lastly I added a grey puppy button.
Next is the super sassy ladies from the
A DOG'S LIFE stamp set by Emilie!
And the last clear stamp set is a delicious set of yummy-ness called DONUT WORRY from artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen!
We also have a brand new Hybrid Ink in the large ink pad, mini cube and ink refill and it's called....CHARMING CHARTREUSE!
We have two new stencils that you will love called....
.
..PAWPRINTS.
and SPRINKLES!
Lastly is our BRAND NEW product in the Kraftin' Kimmie line and that's our new KIMMIE DOTS!!

This adorable stamp set celebrates our four-legged besties! It features a sweet little puppy called Cuddles and his human pals! There are five main images, several accessory stamps and four coordinating sentiment stamps!
I used two of the very cute puppy images from the Cuddles the Puppy set.  I did that because I made the card for my DD Kimmie's birthday and she has two gorgeous chihuahua pups.  Not quite the same, but pretty close.  I also coloured the girls' hair mauve because that is the shade of Kimmie's hair right now!  I also sponged the background using the new awesome stencil being released this weekend, I sponged it using the gorgeous Charming Chartreuse ink, also being released.  The card stock I used is the retired S.U. Kiwi Kiss and Orchid Opulence.  I added a border along the bottom using a butterfly border punch, also a bow using some Orchid ribbon.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge - Layers


Hi and welcome to this week's Krafty Challenge.  This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, Melany and
your challenge theme is.... LAYERS!
For my card, I used another of the super cute images from the Out Of This World stamp set.  I just love using them, they are such fun and you can colour them any way you want to.  With my trusty Copics, I coloured him up and cut him out using an oval Spellbinders die.  I doodled around the edge of the image, then matted it onto some of the patterned paper I was using, which is from Doodlebug and called So Much Pun.  I used Basic Black for my card base, then matted the rest with bright yellow.  I stamped 'You're My Favourite Earthling', which is one of three cute sentiments onto some red card stock. I added some matching royal blue satin ribbon and I was done.  Don't you love the cute spaceship and alien paper?

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps January Release Previews. Day 1

Welcome to the FIRST release of this brand new year at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
This is Day ONE of our January Krafty Peeks and we are over the moon excited to share everything with you! We've got new stamp sets, new stencils, new ink, a BRAND NEW PRODUCT and we're thrilled to be introducing you to our NEW ARTIST!
Hang on tight...'cause here we go!
The first set for January that we are sharing with you is called YOU ARE SUPER and is from our brand new artist, Neda Sadreddin!
We all have women and girls in our lives who are superheros to us and to others! Just by being themselves as a Mom, a Grandma, a Friend...and we need to tell them more often how AWESOME we think they are! So here comes the perfect stamp set! It features a main full sized image plus two portrait sized images in different super cute poses! You can add a mask and even different letters to her chest to make it personal for the recipient! There are several sentiments and options to create your own! I think you'll agree this is a fabulous first set from Neda!
I felt I wanted to use soft colours on my card as I have somebody in mind to send it to.  I used the portrait stamp of the winking Super girl, who I have called Friend, hence the F on her outfit.  I uded some pretty pink card stock for the base and also for the background around her.  I also used some S.U. Pool Party for matting and for the frame around her.  The actual background was made using Kraftin' Kimmie's new to be released stencil Harlequin.  I sponged it onto a white background using the new, also being released Pretty Pink Ink.   It's so lovely to work with, I can't wait to use the other hearts stencil, also being released this coming weekend.  I added a sentiment, 'Super Friend', which amongst others is also in the stamp set.  I added a few enamel dots and some flowers, just to finish it off.
You'll get to see ALL of our new goodies in action over the next few days of January Krafty Peeks and they'll all be released at our LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday, January 12 at 2pm EST in the Krafty Friends group!
For now, hop around and check out some samples from our incredible Krafty Team! You might spot some other new goodies while you're hopping around....and Kim will tell you more about them tomorrow!! So come on back!

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 is all about....
EMBOSSING!!
I have made a simple card using the fabulous Holiday Village set of stamps, which has so many cute houses, church, trees, snowflakes etc.  It also has five great sentiments.  This was such an easy card to whip up using one of the houses and the super little reindeer and Santa stamp.  I embossed the background layers with one of my snowflake embossing folders, pop dotted the main image, added some green ribbon, a snowflake charm and I heat embossed one of the sentiments in white on red cardstock, then added some red gems.

Out of This World again!

I have made a shaker card using the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps 'Out of this World' set.  I love this little guy and he or she is suitable for so many occasions and for grown ups or kidlets.  There are three adorable main images and three lovely sentiments, as well as several stars and a partial planet to stand them on.  I didn't use the planet as it would not be visible under the sequins. 

I used a white card base and all the rest of the card is made using Doodlebug 'Hallowe'en Parade patterned paper pad. 

I hope to post a card a lot sooner the next time.

Happy Stamping,
NanaDiana

Out Of This World!

Well, first of all, I have to apologize for posting so rarely these days.  So many issues seem to get in the way of what I really love to do.  And I'm retired!!  I'm obviously doing something wrong.





Welcome back to Day FIVE of our AUGUST Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Today is the final day of peeks and the release party is

THIS AFTERNOON at 1pm EST on Facebook!
Are you going to join in and help us
celebrate ALL the new sets?

There's no stamp set on the planet quite like this one
from artist Cheryl Grant!
It's called OUT OF THIS WORLD!


Now don't forget!!! It's also CHALLENGE DAY and as always, during release week the theme is ANYTHING GOES!!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp!! Use any sketch, any design, any embellishments because Anything Goes! Have some krafty fun and join us this week because we'd LOVE to see your KKS designs. You have a week to play with this challenge (until August 24th) and at the end of the month, we'll announce a WINNER from all of the weekly challenges for all of August! We hope you can play along for your chance to WIN a $40 Gift Certificate to use on ANYTHING you want in the shop!! Wanna win??


My card uses the little round guy with his tongue out.  There are two other adorable little aliens or monsters or whatever you would like them to be.  I can't wait to ink them up too, I think I am going to use them for Hallowe'en cards for my grandchildren.  There are two other sentiments besides the one I used on my card.  There are also some stars and part of a planet for them to stand on.  Such a great set.  Anyway, I digress.  For my card base, I used S.U. Gumball Green and all of the matting was made with long retired Only Orange, which I still love.  The patterned paper I used is called Hip Hip Hooray and it's from Doodlebug.  I added a few star buttons, some blue ribbon and my sentiment is on a punched oval of the Gumball Green.  This was such a fun card to make.

All the Krafty Design Team members listed below have lots of super sweet creations to share with you today featuring the OUT OF THIS WORLD stamp set! Be sure to hop around and leave lots of love at each and every stop because one lucky commenter will WIN a gift voucher to the shop! The winner will be announced at the LIVE Online Release Party
