strings on the stencil.  So much fun to ink up!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Challenge #547 "CIRCLES"


Happy Saturday everyone! Each and every Saturday
at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS we give you 
a new challenge theme to create with.  

This week our hostess krafty gal Delphine has chosen the
theme for Challenge #547 of CIRCLES! 
One of my favorite shapes! 

I got a little overly ambitious and decided to make
a slimline shaker card featuring three circles.

That absolutely adorable quirky turkey and fun 
sentiments are from the NEW IT'S TURKEY DAY!
clear stamp set.  What do you think?
Do you like it? I will admit it was a bit of a challenge
for me after only making one fairly simple shaker card
previously. But I persevered and I love it!! 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

What will you make to share with us this week for 
the CIRCLES challenge?  I can't wait to see!!
You can submit your entry in the KKS blog link
or in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group (look for the 
folder to upload it there).  Every time you enter a new
creation in one of our challenges you get a chance toward
winning the monthly prize of a $25 gift voucher to spend
in the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop! And...if you use KKS
products on your entry it counts twice!  

Before I go... there's an awesome VIRTUAL krafty event
happening next week (starting on Friday, September 11th).

This going to be so much FUN!  I'll be doing a couple of the LIVE
craft alongs on Saturday and Sunday.  If you aren't in the group already

Time for a Spooky Krafty Komeback - and a Challenge!

Hello all! What an exciting day it is at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!
Today we are bringing back a super cute Halloween stamp set
by artist Cheryl Grant that was first introduced in 2013 and has
not been available for several years.  I was one of the lucky ones
to have purchased this in the original rubber form but now
it's available in the awesome clear photopolymer stamp version! 

Not only is this stamp set back in the shop there is also a 
special promotion going on this weekend called
MYSTERY MADNESS.  Everyone who participates in this 
will WIN A PRIZE! There are lots of good ones to win. 
One lucky winner will win their entire order for FREE.
To participate you must first purchase the  
YOU'RE A SCREAM stamp set (separately
or as part of an order - such as your FRUGAL FRIDAY purchase).  
Once you've placed your order 
head on over to the KKS Krafty Friends Facebook Group
to find this graphic and claim a number.  Everyone who has 
a number will be a WINNER.  But be quick because
there are only 30 spots available!!!
Remember everyone with a number is a winner.  

Are you ready to see it???  It's called YOU'RE A SCREAM! 
I cannot express how very happy I am that this set is back!

I made two cards to share with you today.  Here's the first
using Lucas the Mummy and the new Gorgeous Gauze stencil
(and some of the new Halloween dots).  I colored him with 
prisma color pencils on kraft paper.  Inks used are the
NEW Tempting Tangerine and Purple Pansy hybrid inks 

My second card features Lexi the Spider.
That big ol' purple spider web around her is 
made with foil and the Creepy Cobweb stencil.
This is my first attempt at using foil with the 
Duo Transfer gel (no heat required).  I learned a couple
things in the process but am happy with how it turned out. 
I also used the new Halloween dots and Tempting Tangerine ink.

We've put together a fun krafty hop for you 
featuring this Komeback set and  promotion. 
There's also a new challenge this week and the 
theme is ANYTHING GOES!  Playing along in 
our challenges gives you a chance at the monthly
$25 gift voucher to spend in the KKS Shop! 
Come play along and show us how you're using 
your KKS goodies!  We love to be inspired by you too!
Thanks for stopping in to visit! Enjoy the rest of the 
inspiration from the krafty krew below! Hugs! D

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #545 - PURPLE!

Happy happy weekend! I hope it's a good one for you.
It's time for another weekly theme challenge at

Use a lot or a little - just make sure we can 
see some of the color purple on your creation. 

I LOVE the color purple but for some reason 
it's not the first color I reach for.  
As I started thinking of ideas all of a 
sudden lots and lots of them flooded my brain.
So....I might be using purple more often!

Have you seen the NEW Gorgeous Gauze stencil?
I am a little bit obsessed with this stencil and used
it for the background on my card.
That lovely gal is from the stamp sets Trendy Tees
and Trendy Tees Icons ("BFF"). 
This card is going to my BFF named Karen
(who by the way loves Purple).
The Purple Petunia KKS hybrid ink worked 
perfectly for the tone on tone look. 
 I added some of my favorite embellishments -
the Krafty Dots.  I'd love to tell you which ones
I used but I have so many of them and I lost track
of labeling them (oops). can find 
lots of of them in the KKS Shop while you are
shopping the Frugal Friday Specials - wink wink!
Image may contain: text

Please come play along with our  PURPLE
challenge this week.  We love to see what you make with 
the KKS goodies you purchase. And don't forget
that your creations often inspire us too!! 
Every month Kimmie selects a random winner 
from all the weekly challenges (a $25 gift code to use
in the KKS Shop).  If you wanna win you gotta play! 

Thanks for stopping in to visit! Hugs! D
