Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #570 - Something Yummy!

Happy Saturday crafty friends!
It's time for another weekly theme challenge at 

For Challenge #570 we'd like you to use the
theme of "SOMETHING YUMMY" .

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 Stamps products will earn you double entries!
The monthly prize is a $25 voucher to the Krafty shop!!!

We can't wait to see what you come up with!
There's so many images that have food, cooking, baking
drinks (coffee, tea, wine) to choose from. 

My card features the newly released 
Baking Bonanza stencil and one of the images
and sentiments from Happiness is Homemade! 

I used the stencil to make an embossed background.
Then I added some Cosmic Shimmer in Sunset Orange
with the touch tip applicator through the stencil on top 
of the embossed areas.  After that dried I sponged
some Sandy Shores KKS hybrid ink over the top of the
entire panel.  The shimmer still shows through but it's 
much more subtle (see photo below). 
You can see that I also used the stencil in the usual
way to ink another layering panel.  The image is 
colored with a combo of copics and Prisma color pencils
(and a touch of white Sharpie paint pen). 

So that's all from me today. Now it's your turn to 
create something with our theme and join
the challenge.  Full details can be found on the 
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps main blog (click here). 

Don't forget the new Frugal Friday Specials are loaded
in the KKS Shop too. Some great deals to be found!

and a couple of the KKS exclusive baking chipboard 
goodies (from the February ADD ON Bundle).

I have several photos to show you of my 
Peek-A-Boo Window card.    
The sentiment in the peek-a-boo circle is part of the
LULU AND FRIENDS set.  The sentiment on the 
bottom is from the new HAPPINESS IS HOMEMADE
stamp set.  I used Stickles glitter glue and Liquid Pearls
in Hot Chocolate to decorate the chipboard cupcakes. 

The next three photos show images from 
HAPPINESS IS HOMEMADE in the top cut out.
A One... 

And a TWO...

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps New Release Peeks Final Day & Anything Goes Challenge

Hello friends! Happy weekend to you!
I sure hope wherever you are is warmer than
what we are experiencing in Montana.  
Thursday evening it was -36 degrees F w/wind chill. 
It's supposed to be warmer today but barely above 0. 

The cold weather makes for a great excuse to stay 
inside and get crafty!  Speaking of which...
it's the final day of the February release sneak peek 
and the start of a new weekly challenge. 
The theme is ANYTHING GOES (as it always
is during release week).  So link up and join
us this week - we love to see what you make!

I can hardly wait to show you the stamp set for the final 
day of our peeks.  It's by our own Krafty Gal artist 
Allison Cope and it's called FUNNY FISHES

Just look at all these fun images and punny sentiments!!!

As soon as I saw this set my brain immediately went
to an aquarium.  Never having made such a thing
before it was quite a crafty trial and error endeavor
but I'm happy with how it turned out.  

I used some silver foil card stock around the edges 
and a piece of window sheet to create the front panel
of the aquarium.  I colored the bottom piece with a 
black copic marker for the base. 
The scene inside was created with the new 
Aqua Adventure hybrid ink.  I splashed a few drops of
the ink refill on my gelli plate and then smooshed my
paper on that.  When that dried, I sponged over the
Rocky Road stencil (released last month) toward
the bottom and lightly about half way up the panel. 
Then I took the mini ink cube and just randomly
pressed it down on the panel.  As a last step I 
spritzed a bit more of the ink on the gelli plate
and misted it with water and put the paper back
down on it.  The images and rocks on the bottom
were all stamped in the Granite Grey ink and then
colored with copic markers.  I used some Nuvo
glitter spray in green apple on the chipboard
pieces  (part of the special February Add ON bundle
to make it look like the floating greenery in the tank.
It's really shimmery in real life but unfortunately 
just did not photograph well at all - quite bummed!  
Here's a closer look from a different angle.  

Here's a look too at the special February Add On bundle
It's a great compliment to this month's stamp sets and themes. 

ALL the new products and special add ons will be available
later today in the KKS Shop following the 
The fun starts at 2pm Eastern - hope you'll join us! 

Thanks for popping in to visit today.  I  hope you will visit
the rest of the Krafty DT (links below) and see what they've

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - February 2021 Sneak Peeks - Day Two!

Hello again! Welcome back to Day Two of the
February 2021 New Release sneak peeks! 

I'm super excited about the stamp set today.
It represents something I love to do - bake sweets! 
artist Neda Sadreddin.  It's so sweet you'll 
have a very difficult time resisting it!

Here's my card to share with you today.
I started with a slimline die cut panel and 
used the new AQUA ADVENTURE ink and
the BAKING BONANZA stencil.  Then I added
the fussy cut images and some of the awesome
chipboard accents from the February Add On Bundle.

This chipboard is really easy and fun to decorate 
and embellish.  I used a variety of liquid pearls. 
stickles, ink, nuvo drops and opal polish. 

I'm also sharing this card in the following challenges:

If you are interested in the February Add on Bundle,
here's a photo of all that is included.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - February 2021 Sneak Peeks - Day One!

Hello, hello! I'm happy you're here to visit me today.
Today is the first day of the sneak peeks of
the fabulous February New Release for 

Over the next 4 days we will be sharing peeks of 
the new stamp sets, stencils, ink and bonus add ons.
I hope you're ready to get started because here we go!

Our first stamp set is a Krafty Komeback set by artist
Cheryl Grant called LULU & FRIENDS!

This was originally released in rubber and we are excited
to bring it back in the awesome clear stamp version. 
You are gonna love this super sweet set - take a look!

As you hop around today to all the blogs of the DT
you'll see peeks of the gorgeous NEW hybrid ink color
AQUA ADVENTURE, two NEW awesome stencils
and some peeks of the February Add On Bundle!

Here's my card to share with you today

Do you see that very subtle square shape around
Lulu and her froggy friend?  I first used the solid
largest square from the SMOKIN' SQUARES stencil
to put over the image and then used the 
 Rainy Day stencil  over the top of that to get a 
nice masked off square shape.  Then I used the normal
part of the stencil and very lightly sponged ink
back around the edges.  I think it almost makes the 
image look like it's popped out a bit.  That beautiful
color of ink is the NEW AQUA ADVENTURE.

This and the other new products will be available for  
purchase this weekend after the LIVE Online Release Party
at 2 pm Eastern on Saturday, February 13th. 
Come join us in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group
for the fun with Kimmie! 

Tomorrow I'll be back with another peek for you. 
For now check out the links below for the Krafty DT
and go see what they have to share with you too.
Remember to leave a little love at each stop because
one lucky person could win some Krafty $ just for 
leaving a comment! Plus it makes our day to hear from you!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #567 - LOVE

Hello friends! Happy Saturday!
Are you ready for another weekly theme 
challenge at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS?! 

How timely is that with Valentine's day right around the corner?
Usually I'm scrambling at the last few days to get my cards
done for this holiday.  If you are like me this is a great 
opportunity to jump in and join our challenge.
You can enter as many times as you like (as long as each 
entry is a new creation). We LOVE to see what you make! 

For my creation today I used the Chubby Cloud stencil
(with Bubbly Blue ink) and a sentiment from 
Together is Better! to make two quick, punny love cards.

This was a perfect design to use up some of my
extra die cut hearts that were scattered on my desk. 

I'd like to share my cards in the following challenges too:
