September New Release Peeks - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - DAY FOUR and ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE!

 Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the September Release

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


We are so excited to share a fantastic set

by artist

Sabrina van Vlotten called...

MICE CHRISTMAS

Sabrina's sweet mice friends are back to help celebrate the holidays! You might remember them from the adorable Too Cute To Spook and You're A Squeak-heart sets! I can't wait to mix and match these cuties! 

This new stamp set has completely stolen my heart! I made two cards to share with you today. The first one features the adorable mouse and his snow"mouse".  Take a peek. 


I also used the awesome new stencil -
DIAGON-ILLY with the beautiful new blue 
hybrid ink called INCREDIBLE INDIGO
This is the perfect blue for the holidays (in
my humble opinion). I also used some of the
Waterfall Stickles (from the September Add On Bundle)
around the edge of the background
frame and to make a few sparkly drops of snow. 
Here's a closer look:


My second card features two more of the 
adorable images.  I took a big risk for me
and colored up a Christmas Eve scene with 
my copic markers.  


Notice that adorable wreath hanging above the
fireplace mantel? That's one of the adorable
charms from the September Add On Bundle
Oh and that sweet sentiment is from the 
Shake It Up! - Polar Bears clear stamp set.

This week the challenge theme for you is: 

AUTUMN COLOURS!

Fall is my favorite time of year and has some of my very favorite color combos on display!  I colored up this fun
and adorable stamp from the LEAVES ARE FALLING 
clear stamp set.  I used the colors of the papers on my card as inspiration for the copic colors I used.  

Lots of yummy fall colored papers! I used a combo of papers from Doodlebug Design and a strip from the August Add On Bundle (pumpkins). The leaf in the top corner is a piece of the special
chipboard that is also part of the August Add On Bundle.  First I put some Marvellous Mocha ink on the leaf, then I painted a little of the Cosmic Shimmer Opal Blaze in Orange Sunset (from the Add On Bundle) over the top of that. Once dried, I added stamped the sentiment and added some Creamy Caramel ink around the edges.   Below is a closer look for you.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
The Card Concept #159 - Colorful Fall (see inspiration photo below).  I was inspired by the fall theme and used a Clean and Layered card style.



I hope that you will decide to join us this week!

September Skrappy Challenge - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps



   Good morning krafty friends!

It's September and that means it's time for a brand new
SKRAPPY CHALLENGE

with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


 The theme of course is ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

For this challenge you can make anything that strikes your fancy....except a card!
So design a new scrapbook page, bookmark, tag, altered item, planner page, art journal, ATC cards...whatever you like!

Just make sure to include some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps products and make sure it's a new creation!  As soon as we have at least five people playing along, we'll be giving away a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop as the monthly prize!  

You have until Monday, October 4th to enter, and you can submit as many new creations as you like for more chances to WIN!  Also be sure to share your designs on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Krafty Friends facebook page because we love to see your stuff!

Today I have a fun shaker tag to share with you! 
I used one of the super cute images from 
SQUIRREL FUN and papers and the Cosmic
Shimmer Opal Blaze (sunset orange) from the August Add On bundle
To make this tag I first used some Lunar Paste (in traffic cone orange) through the Falling Leaves Stencil on top of one of the papers from the bundle.  Then I sprayed some Distress Oxide paints over the top of it. The outer frame of this tag is chipboard but you can't tell that because I used the gorgeous Cosmic Shimmer over the top of it. The sentiment is stamped with the new Cool Canteloupe hybrid ink (such a gorgeous fall orange!).  

Here's a close up 


If you haven't grabbed the August Add On bundle (still available in limited quantities) you are missing out on some seriously awesome fall
products that work so well with the recent fall release (and previous ones too) at KKS. 
The idea behind the Add On bundles is that you can immediately start crafting and creating when you open the package. There are FIVE full size products in this bundle!! Everything is coordinated so wonderfully and you don't have to dig for things or think too hard about what goes with what.  
Anyway... as I said, it's a great value and awesome bunch of goodies so grab it while you can cause when it's gone, it's gone! 
 
Thanks for visiting me today!

Freshly Made Sketches #500

 Hello again, I'm back again with a second card to 
share that I made for the 

This time I used a fun new kit from Taylored Expressions
 (includes a stamp, stencil and dies) called In The Abstract. 
Taylored Expressions is one of the sponsors of
the FMS#500 celebrations.  

Here's the fabulous Sketch #500
And here's my card

I love the font on the sentiment. 
I was going for a fall type card but after I 
made it, I felt like it almost looked more like
Christmas colors.  That's the beauty of this set
really.  You could change the color of the leaft
sprig to green and add a different sentiment to
get a completely different look.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
