Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #518 - Your Fave Critter or Creature

Hello and happy weekend!
Saturday's are always the start of a new weekly
and this week the theme for 
Challenge #518 is Favorite Critter or Creature.

Oh boy, for me to choose my favorite KKS critter or
creature is like asking me to name my favorite dog or kid LOL!
There are soooo many awesome KKS stamps featuring dogs, cats, 
birds, bears, beavers, hedgehogs, reindeer, yetis, monsters....etc.
How does one choose you might ask.  Well.... for me it's choose
my favorite at the moment and that is the hedgehogs from the
HAPPY HEDGEHOGS stamp set that was released last month.

I've always been a little enamored by hedgehogs.
They're so cute and shy and small!  
The images from the stamp set are so fun to color too.  

This card was made for our own Kraftin' Kimmie's birthday
using one of the adorable hedgehogs, the Krafty Scenery and 
Krafty Scenery 2 stencils.   Take a peek

I hope that you will join us this week and share
your own creation featuring a favorite critter or creature.
Each time you enter a NEW creation you get a chance
to win the monthly prize of a KKS $40 gift certificate to 
spend in the KKS Shop.  Pretty awesome right??
But you can't win if you don't play along. 
Details on how to enter are on the main blog - here.

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

OH and Don't Forget about the FRUGAL FRIDAY SALE!
There just might be something on your wish list on sale.

Beary Love in Blue

Hello friends!
Popping in to share my newest card with you
for the current Anything Goes Challenge
at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps
(All products used are from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps).

I made the background using a stencil first
(Beautiful Burlap) with a dollar store makeup
brush and Sparkling Sapphire hybrid ink.
Next I used my Stamping platform to make the
repeating heart pattern on top of the stenciled pattern.
First I used a medium sized heart from
Hearts and Stars! In Bubbly Blue ink.
Then I used a smaller heart and this time
used Sparkling Sapphire ink - again in a
repeating pattern. I colored one of the
adorable bear images from Beary Love
In a coordinating shade of blue for a
monochromatic effect. It might be difficult
to see but I stamped the image in the blue ink
too. Kraftin’ Kimmie hybrid inks are so fantastic
for all coloring mediums without bleeding!
Lastly the sentiment from Love Story Sentiments
Was also stamped on the Sparkling Sapphire ink
And cut in a flagged shape.
I really love how it turned out!
Take a look:

I’m entering the following challenges:
YNS Fun Friday Challenge #132 "Create Your Own Background"

Thanks so much for visiting me today! Hugs! D

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - February 2020 Skrappy Challenge

Hello sweet friends and followers!
 Today is the start of another monthly Skrappy Challenge
Image may contain: possible text that says 'Skrapp Challenge! Challenge! Join us for a challenge featuring anything BUT a card! You have all month to play along and enter as often as you like! www.'

The Skrappy Challenge is an awesome opportunity for 
you to stretch your creative abilities and make and

gift box, treat packaging, gift get the idea.  
Just make sure your creation is a NEW one, and includes
a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and/or other KKS products.  

Last year I decided late in the year to make a few desk calendar
pages.  I continued working with 2020 as a gift for Kimmie.
I used all Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, inks & stencils on the monthly sheets.
It was a really fun project! The hardest part was trying to decide
which awesome KKS stamp set to use (so many great options)!

Here's the February page
using one of the sweet stamps from
the brand NEW Happy Hedgehogs!

I put a piece of colored cardstock behind each
monthly panel to give it more strength for standing
up in the small display easel.  

Here are a few more pages that I did as well.
I can't show you all of them because I MAY
(wink, wink) have used some new goodies that
we haven't released yet).  
Stencil - Stained Glass
Stamp set - Bugs and Kisses

Stencil - Krafty Scenery
Stamp Set - Blessings of Peace

Stencil - Wonderful Waves
Stamp set - Hip-Hippo-Ray!

Stamp set - My Gnomies

Stamp Sets - Grateful Pumpkins (tiny leaves), 
Harvest Blessings (kitty and pumpkins), 
and Pumpkin Kisses (sentiment)

You have a whole month to play along (until March 2nd)
and you can enter as many times as you want!
