Image may contain: text

Grab your favorite beverage, relax and hop along
to all the blogs/links listed below for some more
wonderful inspiration from the Krafty DT.  
After you get done hopping you can pop on
into the KKS Shop and do a little shopping!

In case you missed it ALL the new products were released 
in the KKS Shop yesterday.  These products are already flying 
off the shelf so I'm thinking you are all LOVING them too!

My card for today features the super adorable boy
set from artist Cheryl Grant called FARM-TASTIC

Ohhh and I add a few of the new RAINBOW BRIGHT 
Krafty Dots - I love these Krafty dots! 
No photo description available.

I've been practicing more with making scenes 
and I really like how this one turned out.

Here's a closer look at the sunbeams and cornfield.
That beautiful yellow color is from the new
SUMMER SUNSHINE hybrid ink. 
The rocks in the road are from the Fairy Village stamp set. 
What do you think?  Isn't it sweet?  

There's also a very special promotion going on 
THIS WEEKEND ONLY that you may want to check
Image may contain: possible text that says 'Share the Krafty Kindness Buy a flower for yourself receive an extra one to give away! May 16-17'
Kimmie wants to recognize that these have been tough
times for us in so many ways and yet we've managed
to pull together and support and be kind to others.
This is a friendship set so we'd love for you to give it to 
someone who you feel could really use some extra kindness. 
For every Perfect Peony stamp set you purchase this
weekend you'll get a second one as a gift to share with
someone else.  There was a tremendous response to this
yesterday so the number remaining is fairly limited. 

I'm the last stop on the hop but if  you missed one of the others,
no worries, you can just click on the photo of someone else
and you'll be magically transported to their blog! 
Thank you for visiting me today and thank you for 
supporting this amazing small business that I design for. 
We are ever so grateful for each of you and hope that
we can continue to make your days brighter with our creations.

Happy Friday peeps!  Welcome back for DAY THREE
of the May 2020 New Release peeks for 
Image may contain: text

Artist Sabrina van Vloten has designed the absolutely
most fantastic set to coordinate with her Fairy Friends 
set.  This one is called Fairy Village.  Take a peek at the
two wonderful whimsical images that are just perfect
for our little fairies to live and play in.  EEEEEeee!

These images are also fun just on their own to make a magical
scene. So many fun possibilities with this set.  And I think
it will coordinate well with several other sets from KKS too. 

I had a lot of fun creating a scene on this card. 
The clouds are from Here Comes the Sun and the
sentiment is from Fairy Folk. Those dots are from the 
NEW RAINBOW BRIGHT DOTS. Did you notice that 
I used the stone accessory stamps to create a mossy path 
around the whimsical teapot? 
Can't you just imagine the little fairies living in there? 

There are some very creative ideas from the Krafty Krew
that you'll see if you click on the links below and go visit them.
Leave a comment at each stop because not only do we love to
hear from you, there's also a prize of Krafty $$ to spend in

May 2020 NEW Release Sneak Peeks - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Day TWO - Perfect Peony

Hello and welcome to DAY TWO of the 
May 2020 NEW Release Sneak Peeks for

Today we have a beyond gorgeous large floral stamp with a 
beautiful sentiment.  It's called PERFECT PEONY 

My mom loves flowers of all types, so I used this
stamp to make her Mother's Day card.

Once again I used the beautiful SUMMER SUNSHINE 
on the background.  I absolutely LOVE this stencil!
The dots are from the NEW RAINBOW BRIGHT DOTS.
The sentiment is from HAPPY THOUGHTS (currently
out of stock but you can get notified when its back) - I thought it
was perfect for a Mother's Day card.  I used Zig watercolor
markers to color the flower and then went over it with the
yellow ink as I was stenciling.  I really like the way it turned out.

Here's a look at the stamp set and sentiment - be prepared to
be wowed by it's stunning details and layers of the petals

This and all the new May products will be in the Krafty Shop
immediately following the LIVE On-Line Release Party on
Saturday, May 16th at 2pm EST.  Come join us for some
fun conversation and sharing.

I know that there are some absolutely ahhhmazing
samples from the rest of the Kraft DT - just click
on the links below and go visit them next.
One lucky commenter will receive some krafty $$
to spend in the KKS Store just for leaving some love.
So don't forget to tell them what you love about their creation!

May 2020 - NEW Release Peeks - Day ONE - UP, UP & AWAY!

Hello lovely friends and followers!
I'm so glad you've popped in to visit me today
because today is DAY ONE of FOUR fantastic days of
sneak peeks for the MAY 2020 NEW Release products 

We are starting off with a super sweet stamp set 
featuring one of my favorite animals - elephants.
But gets's elephants, birds and hot air balloons!

Before I show you my card here's a look at the whole set
called UP, UP & AWAY by artist Becky Pearce

Sooooo CUTE - right?! 

I had so much fun creating my DT card.
I used the NEW SUMMER SUNBURST stencil
in the background with the NEW SUMMER SUNSHINE 
hybrid ink (my new favorite bright yellow ink!) along with
a previously released stencil called Krafty Scenery 2 Stencil
for the mountains along the bottom.  And of course a couple
images from the stamp set UP, UP & AWAY and some of the 
NEW RAINBOW BRIGHT DOTS scattered around too.
Here it is - hope you like it!

I colored the image with copic markers and prisma color pencils.
I inked the mountains with MOSSY MEADOW hybrid ink
(and then enhanced with copics and pencils). The sentiment is
stamped in MERMAID MELODY hybrid ink.   

These new products and those that you will see over the next
four days will all be available in the KKS Shop immediately
following the LIVE On-Line Release Party on Saturday,
May 16th at 2 pm EST.  Hope you can join us - it's 
always a FUN time with Kimmie!

some more inspiration for DAY ONE.  Don't forget to leave

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #530 - FLOWERS

Happy weekend lovely friends and followers.
This weekend I get to be the hostess with the mostest
(mostest of what I haven't yet determined lol) for the Saturday
Challenge theme at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!

My favorite part of late spring/early summer is the 
beautiful flowers everywhere.  Flowers signify happiness
and renewal to me.  That is my inspiration 

My card features a couple different flower images from 
the so very pretty and sweet LOVE BUGS set.

I used one of my favorite KKS Stencils called 
Chubby Clouds for the background (w/Bubbly Blue ink).
This is colored with a combination of copic markers
and prisma color pencils.  

I'm sharing my card in these awesome challenges too:
Thanks so much for checking in with me today!
There's some links below to the blogs of some of my
Krafty teammates who also have some creations and inspiration
to share with you featuring FLOWERS.  Go visit them!
I hope each of you has a beautiful day and that
you are staying healthy!  Hugs D!

May Skrappy Challenge - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello lovely friends! 
Hope the month of May is treating you well so far.
Today I'm here sharing a scrapbook page I made for
the monthly Krafty Skrappy Challenge at

If you aren't familiar with this challenge it's 
always got an anything goes vibe BUT... you
So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook and 
planner pages, tags, get the idea.

There are lots of ways that you can use the fabulous 
Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, stencils, inks and dots. 
Once we have at least 5 people participating there will
be a drawing for a $10 gift certificate to spend in the 
KKS Shop.  You have until Monday, June 2nd to enter.

This past Saturday (May 2nd) in the Kraftin' Kimmie Friends Facebook Group,
in celebration of International Scrapbooking Day, we presented our 
friends in the group with FIVE different challenges.  One of these 
might spark your creative juices and get you started on an entry for 
this month's SKRAPPY CHALLENGE. 

My inspiration for this page design was one of the iNSD challenges
 in the Friends Group which is to make your own background. 
I'm just a wee bit behind on my scrapbooking. The pup in this page
is now 10 years old!  I made the entire background with 
the PAWPRINTS Stencil using Marvelous Mocha and Ruby Red 
hybrid inks. The sweet sentiments and accessory stamps are from 
CUDDLES THE PUPPY clear stamp set.  The fun accents are 
from Doodlebug (one of my favorite paper lines).  

So now it's your turn! Go get Skrappy!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #529 - Multiple Layers

Hello and a good happy Saturday to you!
It's time for another weekly theme challenge from 

Our challenge #529, should you decided to accept it,
is to USE MULTIPLE LAYERS on your creation.

I love layers! In fact, I really struggle with one layer
cards (love when others do them - but mine always seem 
to look plain or too simple to me) - so this challenge makes
me happy, happy, happy!   Really - no lie! 

My card features a big flower from the LOVE BUGS
stamp set and a hummingbird from HAPPY HUMMINGBIRDS
(the sentiment is from a retired KKS stamp set). There's also
a few of the Fruity Dots scattered on the front too. 
Both of the main images were colored with copic markers
and then enhanced with prisma color pencils. 
I sent this card to my sister who is quite the flower
gardener - she loved it! 

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

I hope that you'll decide to join us this week too
and share your own Multiple Layer project.
Please make sure that it is a NEW creation
and if it features a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp or other product
your entry gives you a double chance at the monthly 
prize of a $25 gift certificate to spend in the KKS Shop!

And because it's International Scrapbooking Day
Kimmie has a special SALE going on. Check it out!
Image may contain: possible text that says 'SALE! A Krafty Let's celebrate International Scrapbook Day with a SALE! Enjoy special prices on clear stamps, hybrid ink pads, stencils and dots in our Krafty Shop all weekend long while supplies last! WWW'

Thanks so much for visiting me today! 
I realized as I was typing this post that this month marks
eight years that I've been sharing my cards/creations on
this blog. Five of those years I've been designing for 
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  How very blessed I feel!
Hope you have a peaceful, safe and krafty weekend!
