Kraftin Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday Challenge



It's Wonderful Wednesday time at Kraftin Kimmie!  It's a Krafty Challenge where anything goes!!!  For my card, I chose Lulu's Wheels!  Isn't she just adorable in her red convertible!!!  And that little puppy in the back is just too cute!  I chose some fun patterned papers for this card, colored my image to match, cut it out with my Scan N Cut 2 and layered it all together.  Then I stamped my sentiment on a die cut cloud and popped it on top using foam tape.  Some enamel dots and a spiral paper clip finish it off.

I've been itching to create something Halloween themed.  It's my favorite holiday and I like to think fall is just around the corner. So I decided to use the oh so adorable Witch Willa to make a Halloween gift bag.  I approached it much like I would a card, it just glued the final product onto a blank gift bag and added a big polka do bow to the top!  So much fun!

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge: Circles


 Hello! Today, I'm sponsoring this week's Challenge: Circles at Kraftin Kimmie.  I love to use circles on my cards.  I think they add a great contrast with the traditional shape of cards.  So this week I'm challenging you to try them out.  Add a bunch or just one or two. 

For my card, I chose this adorable bunny from the Beach Blanket Bingo set.  I chose some bright summery papers and colored my image to match.  Then I die cut a circle, added a scallop circle mat, and popped this little guy on top using some foam tape.  Then I added a die cut sun to the background and some clouds to finish it off.

Krafty Komeback- Let Them Eat Cupcakes


Hello!  It's time for a Krafty Komeback at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! 

As you know, lots of our rubber stamp sets have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore. Well, we've decided to switch some things up and rerelease a few of your faves in CLEAR! And today we're announcing a new one! 

 This super sassy stamp set features TWO fun images from our original A Bit Smart Assy stamp set!

We're calling this one LET THEM EAT CUPCAKES!

 
 
For my card, I chose to work with the cupcake girl.  I found some fun cupcake paper, colored my image to match in bright, cheerful colors, and cut it out using my Scan N Cut 2.  I layered several die cut pieces of paper in the background, popped my image on top using foam tape and added some pretty paper flowers to the side.  A puffy cupcake sticker and enamel dots finish it off.
