12 Krafty Days of Christmas - Day SEVEN - Trendy T's and Trendy T's Icons

Hello - so happy you've stopped by to visit me today.

I get the pleasure today of sharing two of the fabulous
clear photopolymer stamp sets from July 2020 - 

Here's the first card 
Isn't it fun how the icons can be used to customize the 
shirts and personalities of the adults and kiddos?  
The icons can be used in really fun way to make 
interesting backgrounds too (or tags)!
I also used one of the panels from the Pattern Parade stencil
for the main background (with Granite Grey ink). 

My second card uses the same stamp sets & images but this time
it's a Christmas version (the little snowglobe is from
Shake it Up! - Polar Bears. The snowflakes are from the icon set).
Once again I used one of the panels from the Pattern Parade stencil
and the Fresh Fields hybrid ink (also introduced in July) 
with Crisp Crimson hybrid ink (the December ink of the month). 
I love these two colors together for traditional Christmas. 
The main sentiment is from Holiday Wishes stamp set. 
and although the back isn't as exciting as the front
I wanted to show you how I finished it with the 
Handmade Sentiments stamp set (released in Nov 2020).

Each and every day  during the 12 Days Event, you can 
comment on our blog posts for a chance to WIN some
prizes - including some krafty $ to spend in the KKS Store!
You can also enter your own creation using one or more 
of the July 2020 products on the main blog for additional
chances at prizes.  So fun!  
Thanks for stopping in to visit me!  
Have a great krafty day!

December Skrappy Challenge

Good morning krafty friends! 

It's December and that means it's time for a brand new

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, January 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 
because we love to see your stuff! 

Do you love to journal?  Maybe you don't love to journal
but you love lists?  I love lists - there's just something so
satisfying about making a list for me. It seems to put
structure around my world if I have something concrete
to look at - especially if I can check things off as "DONE".
Kimmie recently started a journaling group and I've 
really been enjoying taking my list making to the next 
level of memory keeping and some journaling.  
Here's a page I made last night using the super cute
(and brand new) SAVE MY PLACE stamp set.

If this sounds like something that you would like to learn 
more about - here's the link to the 
Krafty Journaling Fun facebook group. 

But for now there's some more inspiration from 
the Krafty Team below. Click the links to be inspired!!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #559 - Red & Green OR Purple & Blue

Welcome to my blog on this last Saturday of November 2020.
Does that sound as odd to read as it did for me to type?!

Saturday always brings a new weekly theme challenge

Our hostess this week is krafty gal Allison and she has
chosen a fun color combo theme for you. 
Challenge #559 is to Use EITHER 
Red & Green OR Purple and Blue. 

For my DT card I went with the Red & Green combo
and used the super CUUUUTE BELIEVE IN YOUR ELF
clear stamp set (colored with copic markers).

I so adore the look on this mischievous elf's face.
And the reindeer seems to be thinking "oh boy we're 
in for some ride" LOL.  This image is as fun to color
as it is to use on Christmas cards!  The photo 
doesn't show it very well but there's red foil 
cardstock around the base and on the word die. 

If you have been doing some Black Friday shopping 
you can also take advantage of a super sized 
and LOTS of great bargains for  you.  
Here's a link to help you get there - you're welcome! 

We sure do hope that you'll join us this week and 
enter your own Red & Green OR Purple & Blue
creation.  Maybe you'll make one of each!  You
can enter as many times as you wish - just link up a NEW 
creation each time.  There's a monthly prize of $25
for those who play along.  You might be the lucky
one who has some Krafty $$ to spend on yourself! 

So off I go for now! Hope you are having a great
weekend and enjoying some peace and good health
going into the Christmas month. 
Thanks for stopping by! Cyber hugs! D

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #556 - Fall or Winter Creations

Hello to all who are popping in to visit me today!
Happy weekend to you - hoping it's a good one!

It's time for another weekly challenge for 
the honor of choosing the theme this week.

For Challenge #556 the theme is...

I love Fall and all the beautiful colors, hiking, college football
and of course Thanksgiving.  Winter also though has it's own
sort of beauty and is right around the corner (as is Christmas). 
I just couldn't decide at first which theme I really wanted 
so I'm leaving it up to you as to which one inspires you the most!

Our family will not be having the big turkey day celebration this
year due to COVID so I'm sending out more Thanksgiving cards
than usual to stay in touch.  What awesome time it was to
have the super adorable IT'S TURKEY DAY! stamp released
this year.  I've wanted a stamp set like this for while!
My card today is an easel card.  Here's the front
using a sentiment from Pumpkin Kisses
 and here's the card open

So now it's your turn. What season will you pick?
I can't wait to see your creations in the blog or in
the Kraftin' Kimmie Friends Facebook Group folder. 

You can enter as many times as you want - but each
creation must be a NEW and different creation. 
There is a monthly prize offered and every time you
enter it give you a shot at it.  Using KKS products 
doubles your chances.  Go get Krafty!!! 

Oh and before I go... check out the FRUGAL FRIDAY
specials for this weekend and the ink of the month
(which is my favorite - Salty Sea)!

Check out the other creations from my lovely Krafty DT teammates

Challenge #555 and a Krafty Komeback - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Hello friends! Happy Halloween and last day of October 2020!
It will definitely be a different Halloween here thanks to COVID.
But...I'm not going to focus on that!  Instead I'm going to focus
on the FUN News that there is another Krafty Komeback happening
this weekend and I'm super excited about it!!

Before I get to that though - I also want to tell you about 
the new weekly challenge theme that is starting today too.

Challenge #555 theme is CUTE or SCARY! 
I'm not a Scary Halloween type person at all but 
I do love me some CUTE HALLOWEEN images/decorations.
My card features the TOO CUTE TO SPOOK! stamp
set and Ghoulish Ghosts stencil. Take a look

I used the KKS hybrid ink in Purple Petunia with the stencil. 

AND NOW!!!!! Here's a look at the KRAFTY KOMEBACK
stamp set called BELIEVE IN YOUR ELF!  
This particular stamp set made it's debut in 2012
in the rubber format.  It's been in the KKS retired 
vault for the past few years but now IT'S BAAACK
and in the fabulous photopolymer clear stamp version.

I love the look on the face of these elves.
Pure Joy and Pure confusion hahaha. 
This awesome Christmas stamp set will be in 
the KKS Shop for purchase this morning at 10AM EST!
