Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Winter



Hi everyone! It's Saturday and that means it's time for another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie!

 This week's theme is Winter!  Which seems perfect since it's finally starting to get cold here in Texas!  For my card, I decided to use the fabulous Holiday Style Stamp Set.  I just love this set!  These little cuties are so so much fun to color!  I chose some classic patterned papers from the Echo Park Christmas Deliveries Paper Pack and layered them in the background.  Then I stamped out my images and colored them up to match.  I tried to keep this card pretty simple because I wanted the focus to be on these gorgeous stamps.  So I just added a simple scallop to the bottom and a die cut snowflake on the side.  A punched tag and button finish the card off.  I just love how this turned out!

CC Designs - Meowy

Hello there!  Today I'm on the CC Designs Facebook Page sharing this cute little card using the adorable Meowy set!  Aren't these kitties just the cutest! 
 
For my card, I chose some fun floral paper and layered it onto the background.  I cut a circle from a coordinating piece of patterned paper and layered it on top of a die cut scallop circle.  Then I used the new Windows die from CC Designs to cut a cute little window strip from red paper.  I stamped and colored up the kittens to match and die cut them out using the matching Meowy dies.  I popped them on top of the windows and let the tail of one dangle on the bottom.  Then I stamped out my sentiment and die cut it into a speech bubble.  Some enamel dots finish it off.

Kraftin Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday

It's Wonderful Wednesday at Kraftin Kimmie!!!
 
For my card, I decided to create one with a fun little Christmas Baking theme!  I chose this adorable elf from the Made By Elves set and found some patterned papers with Christmas candies and cookies.  Then I colored my image to match, die cut him on my Scan N Cut 2 and popped him on top of this little shaker.  I added a die cut "Merry" and stamped Christmas on to a little brown tag.  I heat embossed it in white and popped it on top of the shaker as well.  Some little die cut gingerbread people and some misc. sequins finish off the card.

KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS' TWELVE KRAFTY DAYS OF CHRISTMAS- Big Finale!

Hello!  Today, I'm here to share with you the Twelfth Day of the Krafty Christmas Series at Kraftin Kimmie! Over the last twelve days, the design team members have been sharing some of their favorite creations from the past year! 
 
Today, each design team member is sharing their favorite stamp set from the last twelve months!  Soooooo... my favorite was Rosie Fairy!  I just love how adorable she is and that rose is gorgeous and so much fun to color! 

 
For my card, I decided to go with a black, white, and yellow theme!  I felt like it was a little unexpected and edgy!  So, I chose some fun patterned papers, colored my image to match, and cut her out using my Scan N Cut 2.  Then, I layered several papers in the background, added some pleated ribbon and die cut a fun scallop border.  I assembled everything on the card front and then added my fairy using some foam tape to add dimension.  Then I stamped a cute little sentiment from the Kraftin Kimmie Make Your Own Magic Stamp Set and topped it off with some pearl stickers.

CC Designs - Breakfast Cutie

Hello! Today I'm sharing a cute little card using the New and adorable Breakfast Stamp set from CC Designs.  I just love this little guy in his cutie-patootie pajamas and fuzzy slippers!  Absolutely precious!  For my card, I chose some fun breakfast patterned paper with eggs on it and colored my image to match.  Then I used one of the journaling cards that came in the paper set and glued it down on my card base.  I die cut my image with a circle die, layered it on top of a Scalloped Circle Die from CC Designs and popped him on top with some foam tape to add dimension.  Then I stamped out an adorable little sentiment from the New Meowy set (I got the idea from DT Joni) and die cut that into a circle as well.  A "faux" enamel dot finishes the sentiment off! I also added some gingham ribbon and a little spiral paper clip as a finishing touch.  I just love how this came out!  Such a cute little stamp!  I love it!

Kraftin Kimmie's Twelve Krafty Days of Christmas- Day Five

Hello!  Today, I'm here sharing a fun card featuring Serena Sparkles and Ocean Background released in May from Kraftin Kimmie.  We're in the midst of Kraftin Kimmie's Twelve Krafty Days of Christmas.  Each day, the Krafty Design Team has been recapping all of the amazing releases we've had each month of 2016!  Today is Day #5 and the month of May!  One of my favorite stamps was released that month! Serena Sparkles!  I used this adorable stamp and the fabulous Ocean Background to create this new card! 

 
For my card, I stamped out this cutie and masked in the Ocean Background behind her.  I used some fun mermaid papers and colored my image to match.  After layering a few of the patterned papers, I popped my image on top using foam tape and created a little ocean scene with some coral die cuts, stickers, and shell embellishment.  Some liquid pearls top it all off.

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Paper Piecing!

 
It's time for another Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge!  This week's theme is Paper Piecing! 
 
 For this week's Paper Piecing challenge, I decided to use the oh-so-adorable Shake It Up Set.  I paper pieced the snow globe with some snowflake patterned paper, colored my images to match and cut them out using my Scan N Cut 2.  Then I popped them on top using some foam tape.  I layered several patterned papers in the background and added some cute ruffled ribbon for interest.  Some pearl stickers top it all off.

Kraftin Kimmie Komeback and Black Friday SALE!

Hello and Happy Black Friday!  Today, I have some fabulous news to share from Kraftin Kimmie!!!
 
As you know, a lot of the rubber stamp sets have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore. Well, Kimmie has decided to switch some things up and rerelease a few of your faves in clear! And today we're announcing the first one!
We at KKS, along with many others, are huge fans of Gilmore Girls! And to celebrate the revival coming out this weekend we're giving one of our awesome coffee stamp sets a Krafty Komeback!!!
 
You might remember this set from a few years ago with these two fabulous friends, sisters, mother/daughter having a chat over some rather large mugs of a hot beverage! Some of the sentiments have been changed and you may recognize some a couple of them from GG!
 
 The set is NOW available in the shop!
 
 
 
For my inspiration card, I decided to go with a pink and brown theme.  I found some fun patterned papers, colored my image to match, and then layered them all together.  I added a pretty flower arrangement to the corner along with a cute little coffee cup and espresso die cut.  Some enamel dots top it off!
