Wonderful Wednesday and it's Fall!!

It's Wonderful Wednesday time!! We hope you can play along!! As always....it's ANYTHING GOES!! Break out your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and get krafty!!
I have been having so much fun with this one of the stamps from the Spooktacular set.  I love making fall cards and I know this is going to become an all time favourite of mine.  I used a card base of Tangerine Tango by S.U.  I stamped the image with Old Olive onto some cream card stock.  Using my Spellbinders, I cut it out, then matted it onto some more Tangerine Tango.  Then I framed it all with some old olive, using my Scallop edge Nesties.  I even tried using some Frantage on it, which you can't see very well in the photo, but I am happy with the result.  I used patterned papers from Bo Bunny called Enchanted Harvest.  I added some orange Sprinkles on the green papers and finished off with an orange gingham ribbon.  Love it, I know just whom to send it to.
There are only a few of the Halloween & the Holiday Kard Kits left... get yours before they are gone!

Omigoodness!! It's Time For A Very Special New Release From Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

This is my sample card for the new Kraftin' Kimmie Christmas Card Kit.  Kimmie gave me a portion of a kit to make this and in fact I had lots left over.  You can see the special stamp, which is being released just for the kit.  Isn't it the most adorable Santa and elf image you have ever seen?  I love it!!
I coloured the image with my ever trusty Copic markers, then matted it onto some rich dark green card stock, which comes with the kit.  I used one sheet of the patterned papers for my background, which is also matted onto the dark green, then onto a card base of cream.  I used some of my other sheet of patterned paper to make the strips, which I matted onto a yummy red card stock, which also came with my little mini kit.  I stamped one of the lovely sentiments onto red and punched it out with my ticket punch.  Then I added some of the lovely red and white twine and added a couple of mini gold jingle bells.  The finishing touch was three wood veneer stars in different sizes.  Easy peasy!!


 This was so much fun, can't wait to make another Christmas card with this very cute image.
Be sure to hop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop and check out all the wonderful papers, cardstocks and embellishments you'll get in this kit, as well as the fabulous new CLEAR stamp set called NO PEEKING! And don't forget to check out all the other NEW stamp sets and goodies in the shop!

Kraftin' Kimmie's September Release!! Day Two.


Hey everyone!! Welcome back to day TWO of our SEPTEMBER Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!!! All of our brand new CLEAR stamp sets will be released on Saturday night!! Are you excited? Are you coming to the party?? Woohoo!
The super sweet stamp set that we're previewing today is from artist Cheryl Grant and it's called ANGEL VOICES!!!It features our fave kiddos, Lexi, Lulu and Lucas, plus a couple of their furry friends and they are going caroling!!! The set also include a star accessory stamp plus two sweet sentiments!

I just made a simple little A2 sized card using the little singing puppy accessory stamp from the Oh, Hear the Angel Voices set.  I didn't have time to do a lot of colouring, so I just stamped him up and added a halo stamp from one of Kimmie's older angel sets.  I admit, the halo is a little large, but he'll grow into it, don't you think?  I used some gorgeous patterned paper from the Bo Bunny Snowfall pad.  It matched beautifully with some light brown card stock, which I used to mat everything.  I used some vanilla cardstock for the image and also for the card base.  I used one of the sentiments from the set, 'Oh, hear the Angel Voices' and the other one is 'Do You Hear What I Hear?', which I think would have worked as well.  There is also a little singing kitty in the set and I can't wait to do something similar with it.  The main images in the set are three separate caroling children so the possibilities are endless.

All the Krafty Girls listed below have lots of super FUN designs to show you featuring these awesome new stamps from Cheryl! And while you're hopping around, be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away a gift voucher!!! You could WIN some Krafty $$$ to spend at the shop!!!! There will be one winner from all the comments this week and they will be announced at the party!

So Happy Hopping and Happy Crafting,
Diana

Wonderful Wednesday and I'm the Hostess!



Well, it's Wonderful Wednesday again and I am the hostess for this week's Challenge, which as usual on a Wednesday, is Anything Goes!  It couldn't be any simpler, could it?
This time, I made a card using one of the Pretty As A Princess set of stamps.  This one is perfect for my sweet little granddaughter, who turns 6 next week.  
I coloured the cute image using my Copics, as usual and I doodled around the edge of the frame.  All my matting was done using Ballet Blue and the card base is Barely Banana!  I don't know what I'll do when I run out of the retired S.U. card stock.  I still love Barely Banana.  I used some American Crafts 'Heartland Farm' patterned papers, added some blue stitched ribbon, blue enamel dots and I stamped the 'Happy Birthday Princess' sentiment above the image layer.  I hope she likes it.

Are you going to come and party with Kimmie and the Krafty Girls?? The Krafty Koffee Krop is this Saturday!  Oh!! Kimmie's also announced a Christmas Holiday Card Kit!!!
