It's Another Wonderful Wednesday!!

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!!
For my little creation I used one of the cute Autumn Wishes stamps, Lulu eating her candy floss, so I'm going to say it was at the Fall Fair.  I used the July sketch for inspiration, I love to have a sketch to use.  I coloured Lulu up with my trusty Copics and mounted everything onto some lovely Bermuda Bay card stock.  I punched out a cute border using the same CS and I used some pink for matting on the flowery layer and to frame the image layer.  I also stamped one of the five seniments onto pink.  I used Summer Lovin', but there are some great others too.  I added some lovely metallic Dew Drops in the corners to add a little pizzazz and there you go.
We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item....you name it!! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on this post until August 22nd at midnight! At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!!! What do you think.....wanna WIN??

You do NOT have to use the sketch, it's just a little extra boost for your mojo if ya need it!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps August Release!!



Woohoo! It's finally here!!

NEW August

Why don't you check them out!
First up is the amazing scene building set called
Next is this fun and versatile set called
And lastly is a wonderful set featuring our feathered friends
This is the stamp set I used.  Those little owls are so cute and they make it so easy to whip up a simple card.  I just coloured two of them and pop dotted them onto a really cool page of patterned paper from the Jillibean pad, Owloween Stew.  The rest of the papers are from the same pad and I love the sheet with the owl story, which I punched out with a die and added down the left side.  I also used one of the sentiments, You're A Hoot and I put a pair of googly eyes on the 'oo'.  Super fun to make.  There are 4 awesome owls, a pile of books in case you want to sit one of the little guys on them.  There are 4 great sentiments, a lovely branch to sit the owls on and a few other stamps, which make this set so versatile.
ALL the new sets are available now individually BUT if you HAVE to have it ALL, we also have our August Gimme Kimmies Kit which includes all THREE of the new sets together and at a discount! But only for a limited time and while supplies last!
Have fun hopping around and checking out the fabulous August Release!
Have a great week,

August 4th. Krafin' Kimmie Challenge. Pearls or Metal Dots!

Happy weekend everyone!  As you can see, this week's challenge is to use pearls or enamel dots on our creations.  I love this kind of a challenge as it gives me a great excuse to use some of those yummy goodies I have in my stash.  My card uses one of the cute little stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps set 'Bugs and Kisses'.  There are several different little bugs in this set, along with a lovely jar stamp that you can put them in.  There are also leaves and several sentiments which are perfect for this set.  The set is perfect for me as I'm really on a kick of making simple cards these days.  So much fun!

My card base is Certainly Celery from Stampin' Up and the borders and the flower and frame are Pixie Pink.  I know I have said it before, but I don't know what I'll do when I run out of my retired card stock.  I used some lovely green half pearls in the corners and also in the centre of my little flower.  The patterned papers I used are called Spring Things from Doodlebug.

Now let's see your creations for a chance to win some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

My Wonderful Wednesday card is one that I recently made for a wedding.  The sentiment is the focal point on the card and I used 'A True Love Story Never Ends'.  It is from the set Love Story Sentiments, which was released in November of 2015.  I also used the retired 'congratulations' sentiment from a retired rubber Kraftin' Kimmie stamp set.  The patterned paper is Jodie Lee Butterfly from Prima Pads and the card stocks are Groovy Guave and Certainly Celery.  The stitched ribbon is also Groovy Guava.  The flowers are from Prima.
