Halloween....my favourite holiday!!  Well it's a holiday to me!  This sweet little stamp is from the "Spook-tacular Sentiments" stamp set.  I had to use my brain for this card because I wanted all the panels around the stamp to be the same length and width and then fit within the square panel....turned out to be easier than I thought...lol!  The designer paper used on this card is from the Echo Park -Apothecary Emporium paper pad and the Graphic 45 - An Eerie Tale paper pad.  I sponged around the edges with distress ink.  The thick twine is by Maya Road.  Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful Wednesday Challenge

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!!...
The fabulous NEW October CLEAR Stamps are in the store! 
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 October 20th at midnight! 
 

I've got a couple of cards to show you made with our "Sincere Sympathy" stamp set. It's not great when you are in need of sympathy cards but it's always good to have some on hand!


For my first card I used Kraft paper and a beige card stock.  I crumbled up the card stock and then rubbed some distress ink over the creases to get a worn look.  I'm happy with the results!  The butterfly is a MS punch and the flowers are from Wild Orchids.  I used a Pearl pen for the off white pearls in the corners and on the butterfly.


My second card is made with a variety of scraps of designer papers and Kraft card stock.  The sentiment was framed using the round Spellbinder dies.  I added some sewing around the circle and on the outside of the panels and card.  The pink ribbon is threaded through the lace.  The pearls are by Crafts. Again, I've used flowers from Wild Orchids.

It's been a great week of Sneak Peeks and I hope you've enjoyed seeing all the wonderful projects by the Krafty girls and guests!  I have another simple card using the Snow Buddies stamp set.
I colored it with Copics and then used Chalk ink to add a light blue background.  The designer papers are pieces of paper left from other projects and I'm not sure what paper pad they are from.  The only other supplies used are Crafts ribbon, MS border punch and a Doodlebug button.

KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS SNEAK PEEK - DAY FIVE!

 
 
We are back with Day FIVE of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps OCTOBER KRAFTY PREVIEWS!!! It's our last day of peeks before the release....TONIGHT!!
Today we are sharing a SUPER cute set of stamps by artist Emilie Goulet, featuring three adorable furry friends! The set is called ICE, ICE, BABY!! This fun set includes THREE main images plus FOUR perfectly coordinating sentiments!! They are ADORABLE!!! 

 
We are ALSO releasing that special stamp set that was part of the
Holiday Kard Kit last month! You can NOW purchase it individually and Emilie designed this sweet image of Santa and his little helper too! The set is called NO PEEKING!


Be sure to join us for all the fun and excitement and prizes TONIGHT beginning at 6pm EST!! Hope you can come hang out with us at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!  
  

I am very happy with how this card turned out!  I started with one idea and ended up with another....lol!  I can't tell you how often that happens!  I used the October sketch for the layout of the card.  Once I colored the image I layered it using the Spellbinder round dies.  The beautiful paper is from the American Crafts - Very Merry paper pad.  The tags are a die from Simon Says Stamp and the snowflake is a Do-hickey die by Magnolia.  I add a dimensional poinsettia sticker to the center of the snowflake.  I used the scraps from the designer paper to make coordinating paper beads.  I think they make the card pop.  If you haven't made paper beads before you should give it a try!  It's super easy and it's a great way to use your scraps!

I decided to make a three window shaker card and used one window for the sentiment and the other two as shakers.  I filled them with tiny punched hearts and snowflakes.  To make the windows I used a Simon Says Stamp Tri-Square Die.  I colored the image with Copics and layered using the La-La-Land Stitched Circles die.  The designer paper is from the Fancy Pants Winterland paper pad.  The thick twine is by Maya Roads and the large snowflakes are made using an MS punch.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Saturday Challenge - Monochromatic!

 
Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  This weeks challenge is "Monochromatic".
Have you joined the Kraftin Kimmie's Krafty Friends Facebook group?  It's the best place to keep up with all of the goings on as well as sharing YOUR creations and getting inspired by other Krafty Friends' creations!!!
Today is WORLD CARD MAKING Day!! To celebrate Kimmie has put about 80 Kraftin Kimmie stamp sets on sale at up to 50% off!  Kimmie and some of the Krafty Girls will also be hanging in our Krafty Rooms today, so join the event on the KKS Friends FB page and hang out & Kraft with us!!
Oh and be sure to tune in this week as we start peeks for the KKS October release!!
Now create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp and be sure to use our THEME as a starting point for your creation!!! You will have until October 9th at 11:55 pm EST to get your entries in!

Doing a Monochromatic card was very difficult for me!!  I love colors and sticking to just one was like having just one chocolate from the whole box....lol!!!
This handsome dude is from the "All Steamed Up" stamp set.  As you can see my color of choice was green!  I went through my ever growing pile of left over scraps from other projects and used those scraps for the designer papers.   I had to use a bit of "math" to have four different sizes of dp's for the background.  I distressed the edges with Peeled paint distress ink.  The Steampunk clock die is by LA-La-Land and the tags are dies by Simon Says Stamp.  The corner die is by Cuttlebug and the wheel is an MS punch.  I also used part of the Gears embossing folder for a panel behind the image.  The tag pulls out to reveal the sentiment.


I hope you can join our challenge this week!  Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for taking the time to pop in!
