Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #486 - No Patterned Paper

Happy weekend!
It's time for another weekly theme challenge 
from KRAFTIN' KIMMIE CHALLENGES.

Challenge #486 is "No Patterned Paper".
I can remember a time when that would cause my
heart to quiver in anxiety to make a card without
patterned paper.  I have a very large amount of
it in my crafty stash - it's kind of an addiction LOL.
But...lately I've been having so much fun using stencils
that my poor patterned paper stash is quite neglected.
with two different blue hybrid inks to make the background
for this pet sympathy card.  I colored the sweet dog to
resemble the doggie that the family lost.
The main image and sentiment are from 
the clear stamp set called FURRY ANGELS .

There's velum panel over the top of the base
that I stamped the sentiment on.  It's never
fun to make a sympathy card, but I do believe
that it really touches people's hearts to know
that we care enough to make something
especially for them in their time of sorrow.

I hope you'll make and share your own
beautiful creation with us this week
without any patterned paper.
We LOVE to see what you create.
Thanks for stopping in to visit me today!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps BLOG HOP Celebration for June 2019 NEW Release

It's BLOG HOP DAY!
I love this day of the new release each month.
It's so fun to see all the different ways that the
KKS DT  and our special guest designer use all the new products. 

Image may contain: text

I played with HIP HIPPO-RAY! and the
WONDERFUL WAVES STENCIL to create a fun scene. 
The waves were created with the NEW Salty Sea ink.
The sentiment was stamped with Wicked Black ink.
(Just as a little side plug - the wicked black ink
is a must have in my book.  It's amazing!)
I also used some of the pretty UNDERWATER DOTS.

I'm so happy you've stopped in to visit me today.  I hope that 
you will hop on down to the rest of the links and enjoy some
more inspiration created for you by the krafty krew DT. 

All THREE new clear stamp sets are NOW available over at the Krafty Shop,
along with our new Salty Sea inks, TWO new stencils and the new
Underwater Krafty Dots! Yaaaay!
You can pick and choose - or for those of you who loved it all there's
an awesome deal called GIMME KIMMIE kit which contains one
of everything from this month at a discount (but only for a limited time).

As You Like it Challenge: Favourite Stamp Brand and Why
Although I'm sure most of you are going to guess that
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps are my favorite stamps.  And
guess what??? You are Correct!!  I am completely a sucker for
cute stamps.  KKS has lots of  fun, whimsical
stamps that just seem to work for so many occassions.
They stamp so crisply and beautifully and are so much
fun to color and create with.  And of the owner, Kimmie
Reid, is an absolute doll.  I am living the dream to be
able to design with her stamps and share my creations with you.

For the next three days we will be wowing you with
creations from the DT and guests featuring the new
release products.  Everything will be released and
available for purchase at the LIVE Release Party
in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group at 1 pm EST

Inspirational Wednesday - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Cuddles the Puppy

Happy Wednesday everyone!
Wednesdays are my second favorite day of the week
(right after Saturday!) and they are always 
special at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE CHALLENGES
because the DT gets to select a stamp set to
showcase and inspire you.  What's
even more fantastic than that is that Kimmie
then puts that stamp set on SALE!  Whoop whoop!

Today it's my turn to be your inspirational enabler
and I chose the Uber Adorable CUDDLES THE PUPPY.

Cuddles The Puppy is such a perfect and fun set for 
the dog/puppy lovers in your life.  Recently several
families I know have gotten new puppies so I thought
I'd make them a card to help them celebrate.
It's the furry version of a New Baby card.

So now that I've shared - here comes the really
big enabler part... You can get this set in the
Krafty Kimmie Shop this week ON SALE for 40% OFF!
Sale ends next Tuesday at midnight so be quick - hehe!
