You're welcome dear crafty friend (hehehe).

My card today features MY HAPPY PLACE
by artist Cheryl Grant.  The sentiment is from another
Cheryl designed set called SMARTY PANTS.
 This is one of my favorite stamps 
from this month's release. It just speaks to my
coffee and book lovin' heart. In fact I'm pretty sure
that Cheryl must have based her on my when I
was a younger girl (glasses and all).

Kraftin' Kimmie May 2019 New Release Peek & Anything Goes Challenge

Hello lovely friends!  The May 2019 NEW Release
peeks from KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS continue.  
It's also the start of a new challenge and the theme is
ANYTHING GOES (as it always is during peeks week).

I'm totally lovin' the NEW "MAKE A WISH" stamp set
by Nedra Sadreddin (you can order this tomorrow afternoon)!
It's just so cute I can hardly stand it!

To make my card, I pulled out my very lonely watercolors 
and made a fun background for the genie and Aladdin. 
Then I added some fun polka dots with the NEW
PINK PIZZAZZ hybrid ink and LOTS OF DOTS stencil 
before adding the fussy cut images and a few of the 
FRUITY DOTS.  I added some die cut vellum clouds also
because I thought it would be fun to make it seem
as if the genie were floating in the clouds with a mist 
of magic around him from the bottle being opened.

Here's how it turned out. I kind of like it!

I'd like to enter this card in these challenges as well:
copic markers and inked through the stencil (as well 
as the sentiment).  

I hope that you'll join in on the Anything Goes Challenge 
this week! I can't wait to see what you make and share! 

Tomorrow is the LIVE ONLINE PARTY in the 
Kraftin' Kimmie Friends Facebook Group.  You'll get to
see all the new products and can purchase them from 
the store right after the event.  I hope that you will
join us! It's always a fun time with Kimmie!!

Until then pop on down to the link below and go
visit the krafty team to see their fabulous
creations using the last NEW stamp set to
be release this month - BERRY SWEET.

very Disney inspired and one of my favorite movies
It's called MAKE A WISH by artist Neda Sadreddin.

My card today features the fun genie and the
NEW  LOTS OF DOTS stencil.  Every time I
look at this stamp I hear Robin Williams voice in 
my head.  He was so fantastic in this role!
 I used Nuevo mousse with the stencil. The texture 
and shimmer from the mousse is so fun 
(but doesn't come through very good in this photo). 

Here's a pic of the rest of this fabulous and fun stamp set

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #479 Rainbow/Bright Colors

Hello friends! Hope you're having an awesome day!
This week we have a new month of fun challenges at

I love to use bright colors on my creations. I googled colors of
the rainbow because I couldn't remember for sure how many there
were and found that some sources say there are 6 colors
and some say there are 7 colors which would be
ROYGBIP - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Purple.
Some sources discussed whether indigo is truly a separate color,
or if its a combination (or blurring) of the blue and purple colors.
Very interesting stuff! I'm pretty sure that when I was in
school there was not indigio as a color (but that was a
very loooonnnnggg time ago LOL).

I chose to color up the super sweet duo from Troll Trouble
in the seven rainbow colors (my indigo is a tiny amount
in the boy troll's hair). I also used some of the fun
KKS rainbow enamel dots on my card.
Supah Supah cute - hope it makes you smile!

I'm also entering this card in these great challenges too:
Jo's Scrap Shack Fun Friday Challenges #FFC280 - Always Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #580 Anything Goes
Time Out Challenges #134 - Playful
(What's more playful than a couple of colorful trolls with candy?)

There are some links below that will take you to
the blogs of some more of the krafty krew and their creations.
Enjoy! Thanks for visiting me today!  Hugs! D
