I have been anxious to use the new Coffee & Friends stamp, which is part of the July release.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a card for my dear friend, whom I had to leave behind in our home town, 3 years ago.  I sure do miss her and this stamp is perfect for her.  
The card base is Daffodil Delight, as is the outer frame for the image layer.  I matted black cardstock onto the yellow.  I love using black, it makes everything pop.  The patterned paper is Beau Jardin by Penny Black and it's yummy.  I added the sentiment 'Miss You A Latte'.  There are 3 other great sentiments with this set.  I added some pretty flowers and punched out some green leaves from the green patterned paper.  I just mailed the card, I hope Jane likes it.

Happy Stampin' and don't forget to link your creation up to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog.

Now to my little creation! Last week, the hubby and I had an 80th. birthday party to go to. This gave me a great excuse to use one of the Make A Wish stamps from the Dec. release. I found some yummy Doodlebug papers called Day to Day, which had some lovely masculine patterns in it. I love the tie page, which I used for my background. I matted it onto Daffodil Delight, which was then matted onto the card base of Gumball Green. I cut out the 80 with my numbers dies, matted it onto some cute brown moustache paper cut into a circle. I set that on a zig zag circle of Poppy Parade and set that onto a little banner strip of the 'stache brown. I then stamped 'Celebrate Your Special Day' onto the checkered green piece at the bottom and added a cute little bow tie and a black moustache. It was a lot of fun making this and I was pleased with it. I hope our friend liked it too.
Wonderful Wednesdays are my favourite, especially as the theme is always Anything Goes. I hope you like it too, let's see your creations for a chance to win. Be sure to link yours up to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog.
Happy Stamping,

Oh Wow!! Time for the July Release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!



Okay, so it's finally time for our July Release and what awesome stamps and goodies Kraftin' Kimmie has in the shop for you.

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of amazing creations featuring new stamp sets from all of our artists for our July release! We know these new stamps will inspire you to make your own fabulous creations! First off, we shared a gorgeous set of SWEET SUMMER SENTIMENTS by artist, Becky Pearce! Then we had TWO new sets from artist, Annie Rodrigue called BECKY BUBBLES and COFFEE FRIENDS! Also we have an awesome new girly girl set from artist Emilie Goulet called PRETTY AS A PRINCESS! Plus a sweet new BABY set from Cheryl Grant called WELCOME TO THE WORLD!

You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our July Krafty Hop! When you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’Kimmie shop, because ALL the new rubber stamp sets are NOW available!! And don't forget...if you NEED it all, we have a Gimme Kimmies Kit which features ALL the new July stamps at a discount!! But only for a limited time!

We've also got MORE new goodies in the shop including new paper pads, enamel dots, brads etc from companies like Simple Stories, Kaisercraft and more! And I've added a totally new section to the shop featuring gorgeous thick baker's twine by Maya Road!!

Now to my creation. I am going to be needing a baby card for some first time parents who are having a little boy. I couldn't wait to use this stamp from the new set Welcome to our World. All three images are adorable and I want to try the others as soon as possible.

I used the retired Baja Breeze cardstock for my base and for the sentiment layer in the heart. There are several other baby sentiments in the set. The patterned paper is Bundle of Joy from EP. Don't you just love the animals and baby bits on the left panel? I used some Early Espresso for matting on it and the main background layer of green. I used green stickles around the image layer and some Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon on the panel. I added some brown half pearls at the bottom right and that's it.

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