April Krafty Peeks, Day One!!

Welcome to Day ONE of our April Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We are ready to celebrate and inspire you with
THREE new stamp sets, TWO new stencils, a brand new INK colour and some new Krafty DOTS!
Who's ready to celebrate SPRING?

We're kicking off the fun with a sweet new SPRING set from artist Neda Sadreddin and it's called.....

I used the sweet image of the little girl with the bird on her hand. Also I added the happy sun image. The whole set is adorable, there is another image of the wee girl stepping in a puddle and the cutest little duck, also in a puddle. Then there are two little clouds and a couple of flowers. Also three lovely sentiments. I used 'Here Comes The Sun'. I know I will be using this set a lot. Anyway, I digress. I actually started this card for the challenge for this week, which was a recipe, to use two layers, a stencil and some red. I then realized I could not post it as the stamp set was not to be released until this weekend. I used the Kraftin' Kimmie stencil 'Sprinkles' with Sapphire Blue Glimmer Paste, it's so glittery IRL. My cardstocks are Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay and Barely Banana for the sun and sentiment. I added some cute flowery ribbon, some red gems and I think that's it.

As you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today you will see the HERE COMES THE SUN stamp set in action in combination with our all of our other awesome new APRIL Kraftin' Kimmie products!

You will spot our newest addition to the Krafty Kolours Hybrid Ink rainbow! It's an amazing dark royal purple named GORGEOUS GRAPE!
As always it will be available in full sized ink pads, mini cubes and ink refills!

We've got TWO brand new Krafty Stencils for this month's release to help accessorize your creations!

And of course, we are adding the perfect new coordinating Krafty Dots for this release! The package includes 66 enamel dots in varying sizes in 6 different colours!
These ones are called RAINY DAY DOTS!

You'll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of April Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends facebook group on Saturday, April 18th at 2 pm EST!

Challenge #516 - Combine Stamp Sets!

It was fun going through my Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps deciding which ones to put together.  I settled on the ,You Are A Squeakheart, set, using one of the very cute mice from that and I took the little snail bearing mail from the Love Bugs stamp set, just released a couple of weeks ago.  I used the little sentiment from the Love Bugs set too.  I hope it looks like he or she is delivering a letter or card to the mouse.  That was my intent anyway.

I used my very last sheet of Pixie Pink for this card.  It has long been retired.  I'm always sad when I finish up my retired card stocks.  Anyway, I digress.  I used it for the card base and also for the frame behined the sentiment. I used papers from a fabulous new pad from Kraftin' Kimmie's last Shop the Box and I didn't even realize before I opened it to use, that it had envelopes on some of the papers.  It's called Love Notes by Doodlebug.  I put a border of yellow card stock behind the main papers, then I used another design from that pad in yellow, matted on Poppy Parade.  I coloured the little cuties with my Copics, die cut the image with Spellbinders Labels V, then used the largest die in the set to make a Poppy Parade border behind it.  To finish it off, I put Yellow stickles all around the edge of the image and added a few red Kraftin' Kimmie Dots.

I think that's it.  That was fun, can't wait to make another card.  Now it's your turn to create something using two KK stamp sets.  You can do it!!

Happy Stampin',

Kraftin' Kimmie Love/Friendship Challenge!

Hidee Ho stampers,

I can't believe I have not posted a card in here with my Kraftin' Kimmie stamps since October!  Ridiculous!

Well, I couldn't resist this challenge as the easiest cards for me to make are Friendship and Love ones.  For this one, I used the super cute Happy Hedge-hugs, which are being released today.  The stamps are all so cute and the sentiments are just as adorable, such as the one I used, which is 'Sending Hedge-hugs to you'.

For the pink matting, I sponged the new Daisy  (Petite Posies) stencil with the also new Crisp Crimson Kraftin' Kimmie Ink.   I coloured the main image with Copics, framed it in a rectangle die, then onto a Deckle edge frame.   I matted the pink layer onto some black CS, then onto a base of Cool Caribbean.  I added some sparkly ric rac and some matching Prima Flowers.  I know just who I'm sending this to.

Hope you have fun creating something using Love or Friendship as your inspiration.

Happy Stampin',
Nana Diana

Black and White Challenge!

Hello and welcome to another fun
Saturday Challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Are you ready for some krazy krafty fun?
We can't wait for you to play along and share your amazing krafty kreations! We are here to inspire your creativity!

Good morning all you lovely crafters.  It's a very cool day here in South Ontario, fall is definitely here.

As you see by the title, our challenge this week is Black and White.  This really was a bit of a challenge for me, but hopefully this is okay.  I used the adorable little fox from the 'Good In The Woods'set, which was released last April.  Of course the card base and the mattings are all done in
Basic Black.  I used Kraftin' Kimmie's Pawprints Stencil.  I think they could be fox pawprints just as well as dogs'.  I used Spellbinders square and rectangular dies and matching scallops ones.  I used the sentiment from the set 'May the Forest Be With You', which I think is so cute.  I added a few black and white flowers and there we are.

Don't forget to send in your take on a Black and White card, we love to see them and you may win some KK clear stamps for your efforts.  Also be sure to check out the creations from the rest of the team, there are some real beauties from these talented people.

Happy Stampin'.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge! Shapes.

Well, good Saturday morning, I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It certainly has a feeling of fall in the air where we live.

As the title says, the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge for this coming week is Shapes.  There are so many different things you can do with this.  You can do a different shaped base for your card, you can use all sorts of different shapes on the actual card, the mind boggles.  Mine is not terribly creative as I made it before this challenge came up and it seemed to fit.  If I had more time, I think I would have been more inventive.  I can't wait to see what your ideas are for the Shapes Challenge.

I love to create using the sentiment stamps, so I used this one from the Pumpkin Kisses stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment in brown as I used cream cardstock and I like that combination.  The image layer uses a lovely narrow oval die that I've had for years and the frame around it is the matching scallop die and I used red for that  I pop dotted that layer onto a square of patterned paper and matted it onto orange C.S.  I added a strip on a different patterned but matching paper, matting it also onto orange.  It is all on a green card base with yet another matching paper, matted onto some of the red cardstock.  I added some fall coloured metallic dots and some linen thread.  Hope you like it.

Now be sure to enter your own creations  using Shapes, you have until next Friday.  You will be entered to win some Kraftin' Kimmie goodness, good luck.

Happy Stamping,
Nana Diana

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. Tags!!

Good morning to all you crafters out there.  As the title says, the challenge for this week over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is to use a tag, any way you want.  You can simply make a tag as I have done, or you can use a tag on another creation such as a card, or perhaps  in your scrapbooking.  I had not made a tag in a long time and I forgot how much fun it was.  Now I want to make more.

I used kraft card stock for mine, then I used the Kraftin' Kimmie Beautiful Burlap stencil all over the tag, Next, I used some Bo Bunny Pumpkin Glitter Paste unevenly on the KK Creepy Cobwebs and added a cute little brown spider on it.  I coloured up  the cute little boy troll from KK's Troll Trouble, sat him on the bottom, then I added some shiny brown ribbon to the top.

Hope you have fun making something using a tag.  You will have a chance to win some awesome Kraftin' Kimmie loot.

Happy crafting,
Nana Diana

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!

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!
