It's also time for a new challenge theme
(as it always is during release week).

Just look at this adorable new set of
singing critters!  Wayyy tooo cuuuute!
No photo description available.

Here's my card using this group of adorable
animals and the NEW Brick Wall stencil.

Oh I had so much fun making this card!  I added a couple
drops of the Wicked Black and Marvellous Mocha inks
to some embossing paste and put it through the stenciled 
background (made using Totally Taupe & Berry Bliss
KKS hybrid inks).  The texture IRL is awesome.
The singing critters were masked, colored with 
Prisma Color pencils and fussy cut. As a final touch 
I dotted some snow all around using a puffy paint pen.  

We sure do hope you play along with us for

Sending you SNOW much love!

Hello crafty friends.  I'm back with another
card to share with you.  It's a one layer and CAS 
 card (gasp!) - and I love how it turned out.

The finished size is 3 1/2" x 5".   

I used a new stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
called Snowflake Kisses.  I  showed you another 
peek of this set early today on this blog post 
if you missed seeing it. The snowflakes are stamped
in three different pinks: Berry Bliss, Pink Pizzazz and
Pretty in Pink (all from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps). 
The enamel dots are also brand new and will 
be available Saturday afternoon - Festive Dots

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Oct 2019 NEW Release Sneak Peek -DAY ONE

Hello! Welcome to my blog!
I'm happy to be sharing a card I made today
for DAY ONE sneak peeks of the October 
NEW RELEASE at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

Image may contain: text

Winter is coming (are you a GOT fan)? and that
means snow - lots and lots of snow - in Montana.
I'm a total sucker for snowflakes even though 
I don't like to be out in the cold.  I love to watch the
snow drifting down while I'm snuggled up warm & cozy.

This new stamp set called SNOWFLAKE KISSES 
by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen is simply stunning!

To make this card, I first created the background
with Pretty in Pink and Bubbly Blue inks sponged
through the NEW Perfect Plaid Stencil.  Then I 
randomly stamped a variety of the snowflakes all 
over it using the NEW Stormy Sky ink (this is 
going to be one of my all time favorite blue inks!), 
and added one of the sentiments from the set.  
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.  Hope you do too!

Thanks for visiting me today.  I'll be back with another
sneak peek on Saturday.

I hope you will join us on Saturday for the LIVE
ONLINE RELEASE Party with Kimmie!
The fun starts at 2pm EST.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #502 - Autumn Colors

Hello crafty followers and friends.
Pardon my excitement but... IT'S THE WEEKEND!!!
We are going to watch some college football
and will get to see both my kiddos.  

Today is the start of Challenge #502 at 
and the theme this week is "AUTUMN COLORS".

Here in Montana we seem to have skipped right by
the beautiful season of Autumn.  The leaves had
barely started to change colors and two nasty snow
storms plunked upon us.  I don't mind winter but 
I LOVE Autumn and am really sad to have missed
all the beautiful colors and cool mornings with
warmer days and sunshine - especially the colors. 

My DT card for this challenge features a gorgeous
gourd  that symbolizes autumn for me
(I LOVE pumpkins) - take a peek

The background is created with the Beautiful Burlap stencil
Then I added some stems, leaves and a pumpkin from 
Grateful Pumpkins (on SALE this weekend) and a 
sentiment from Pumpkin Kisses right over the top of
the stenciled background.  Hope you like it!

Thanks so much for visiting me today. Hugs!

CAS Christmas Card

Hello!  Thanks for visiting me today.
Last weekend was World Card Making Day.
 I colored the beautiful and sweet image on
my card below that day, but didn't get the 
card finished until Wednesday.  

I very seldom make CAS or one layer cards, but
felt a calling on this one to give it a go.  The main image 
is from Santa Paws and the sentiment is from 
Holiday Wishes (both by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps).  

A big bold sentiment and a colored main image = viola!
I really love how it turned out.  Hope you do too.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

I also sent this in to Scrapbook and Cards Today for the WCMD 
 4:00 pm Challenge  - CAS.  

Thanks for sharing with me today! Have a lovely weekend. D

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #501 - Black & White Only

Good happy weekend crafty friends!

Today is the first challenge of October
(where has the year gone?) and the theme for 

I was intrigued and pushed a bit by this challenge
as I love color so much.  But hey...that's what 
challenges are for, to help us stretch our creative
muscles and try something new.  So, I looked 
through all my KKS stamps and realized that 
there were many that would work nicely for 
this theme but I settled on an image from 
POLAR PALS.  Take a look:
 The whole image is colored with copic markers in different
series of the blacks/greys.  The polar bear is colored with
the T series, the penguin bodies are colored with the
N series.  It actually looks very striking IRL. 
As a last touch I added 3 black dots from the 
SPOOKY DOTS series (also from KKS). 

I am also entering my card in 

October is a very special month at KKS
as you might see by the banner below.  TEN 
awesome years to celebrate.   This weekend
we have some awesome deals for you ! Hope you
find some krafty products you've been wishing 
for in this SALE.
