Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps #604 - Use Patterned Paper.

  Good morning and welcome to another

fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge


Are you ready for another fun and krafty challenge to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing?
We've got some fabulous ideas for you 
and can't wait to see what you create!

This week, Krafty Girl Karla is your hostess and her challenge theme for you is: 

PATTERNED PAPER!

Oh I LOVE this theme!! I don't know about you, but... 
I have a HUGE stash of patterned paper. In fact, 
since I've been building my stencil stash my patterned 
papers haven't been getting enough love and use.

I colored up one of the super cute little puffins from the 
PUFFINS AND PALS stamp set and some wintery papers
from my stash to create this clean and simple card. 

I added some Stickles to the snowflakes. I wanted to keep my 
card clean and simple, but I felt it was missing something. 
Why is sparkle so hard to photograph?  
Oh well, hopefully you can see it a little. 

The inspiration for my layout of this card is based on 
the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #508 (see below)
- but I flipped the orientation for my card. 
So I'm entering my card in that challenge too

I hope you like my card and that I've inspired you to 
grab some of your pattern papers and a 
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps stamp set (or two) 
and create something to share with us!

Each and every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and you are welcome to enter as many times as you like.
These must be new creations and you are welcome to use any stamp, however, using Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp products will earn you double entries!

The monthly prize is a $25 voucher to the Krafty shop!!!
Woohoo!  There are two ways to enter: you can link up your creation on the  Kraftin’ Kimmie blog page and if using KKS products,

September New Release Peeks - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - DAY FOUR and ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE!

 Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the September Release

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


We are so excited to share a fantastic set

by artist

Sabrina van Vlotten called...

MICE CHRISTMAS

Sabrina's sweet mice friends are back to help celebrate the holidays! You might remember them from the adorable Too Cute To Spook and You're A Squeak-heart sets! I can't wait to mix and match these cuties! 

This new stamp set has completely stolen my heart! I made two cards to share with you today. The first one features the adorable mouse and his snow"mouse".  Take a peek. 


I also used the awesome new stencil -
DIAGON-ILLY with the beautiful new blue 
hybrid ink called INCREDIBLE INDIGO
This is the perfect blue for the holidays (in
my humble opinion). I also used some of the
Waterfall Stickles (from the September Add On Bundle)
around the edge of the background
frame and to make a few sparkly drops of snow. 
Here's a closer look:


My second card features two more of the 
adorable images.  I took a big risk for me
and colored up a Christmas Eve scene with 
my copic markers.  


Notice that adorable wreath hanging above the
fireplace mantel? That's one of the adorable
charms from the September Add On Bundle
Oh and that sweet sentiment is from the 
Shake It Up! - Polar Bears clear stamp set. 

As you hop around the design team's blogs today you'll be able to check out MICE CHRISTMASin action in combination with a lot of our other new September Kraftin' Kimmie products!
