Join me and rest of the Krafty Design Team for an array of fun cards and projects featuring the new products available today in the Kraftin’ Kimmie Shop; 3 new stamp sets, one new ink and some pretty new Krafty Dots…
Life is a Joy
Just One More Page
My Gnomies
Peachy Ink
Pastel Dots

I chose to feature the adorable “My Gnomies” stamp set and the delicious “Peachy” ink and make a cute little card…

I cut the little door on the front of the card so the sentiment peeks through…

And on the inside, I kept it very simple…

Everything is NOW available at the krafty shop! All the new products are available individually but if you HAVE to have it ALL this month, you can pick up our GIMME KIMMIES KIT which contains one of EVERYTHING we released this month and at a discount but for a limited time!

My Gnomies!

Howdy all and Happy Saturday!  Today is Day 3 and the final day of our Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps July reveal.

Today’s new stamp set is called… “My Gnomies” and it’s adorable!


I chose to make an interactive card with some of the sweet gnomes and scenery in this stamp set.
If you you move the circle on the right side it spins all the little gnomies around!  LOL… so cute!




I used our brand new "Peachy" ink to create a soft, subtle back drop for my cute gnomes.

Just One More Page

Happy Friday!  I hope is all going well with you today.  Today is Day 2 of our July release for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Our stamp set today is called… “Just One More Page”. A stamp set perfect for your pre-teen or teen!

I loved the awesome image of our teen on her fluffy bean bag chair so I knew I had to make a scene for her to be relaxing in. So I created a wood floor, a desk and some wall embellishments.


I wanted to make the back drop of the card kind of dreamy… like when you read a book, you create a world in your head from what you read.  I used the “Krafty Scenery Stencil” and some soft Salty Sea ink to make it look dreamy.

And when you open the flap, you see this…

You'll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of July Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends Facebook group on Saturday, July 13th at 1pm EST!

Life is a Joy

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today is Day 1 of our new July Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps release!

Today we have the adorable stamp set “Life is a Joy” stamp set.  To find out more about this stamp set you can visit the KKS blog today.
Aren't the images adorable in this stamp set?

I chose to make a gate fold card featuring the adorable kids on the bench.  I first stamped on my image and then masked it off.  Then I used our fabulous new “Peachy” ink and blended into the back ground.  Then I added a touch of Yummy Yellow and a light blend of Ruby Red ink towards the bottom.  I also used Charming Chartreuse and Enchanted Emerald inks for the grassy area.


For my card base I used the “Peachy” ink again with our “Leaves & Vines Stencil” to create a subtle patterned paper.

You'll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of July Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends Facebook group on July 13th!

Welcome back to another month of Skrappy Fun at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!  We challenge YOU to make Anything BUT a Card!!!

For this challenge you can make anything you wanna....except a card! So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags, boxes...pretty much anything that includes a krafty stamp!!

I began with the sweet little girl holding the book from the “My Happy Place” stamp set for my bookmark.  I first stamped her and then masked her off.  Then I laid down a soft Copic air brushed back ground of yellows.  I took the fun “Harlequin Stencil” and soft brushed on some Pumpkin Patch ink right over top.  I then peeled off my mask and coloured in my little girl with Copics.  I stamped the sentiment on using “Purple Petunia” ink.  And voila… a super fast bookmark!

Just make sure to include a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and make sure it's a NEW creation! As soon as we have at least five people playing, we'll be giving away a PRIZE!!! yep! One lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

Stars & Stripes!

In honour of all my US friends, I thought I’d create a red, white and blue page for July featuring the July Club Canvo collection.

I used the “Quick Quads Stencil” found in the July box to create the 8 notebook looking rectangles.  Then I used the “Circle Tracker & Banners Stencil” to create the focal circles in the center of each page.

I used all the fun stars and stripe stamps from the “Oh My, It’s July” stamp set to fill in all my circles.  I used Samba, Suede Shoes, Twilight and Black Jack inks on both spreads.


Thanks for stopping by!

No Patterned Papers This Time!

Hello and welcome to another fun Saturday Challenge!  Are you ready for some krafty fun?  We can't wait for you to play along and share your amazing krafty kreations!

Our hostess this week is brand new Krafty Girl, Brigitte!  And her challenge for you is NO PATTERNED PAPER!

With our challenge being no patterned paper, I figured I’d use a few fun stencils.  So I grabbed the adorable “Hip Hippo-ray!” stamp set along with the “Mermaid Scales Stencil” and the “Lots O’Dots Stencil” and have a ball…

I stamped my cute little hippos in Wicked Black ink and added some funny bathing suits to them using a Copic multi-liner pen. Then I used Salty Sea and Mermaid Melody inks to add water and waves to the sea. Then I took Totally Taupe and Creamy Caramel inks and created a beach.

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 a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp will earn you double entries! Each submission will enter you into the monthly draw of a $40 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

We've also got a sketch to inspire you for the month of June! You don't have to use it but it's there for you to use if you need a little kick start....feel free to use it any time!

Don't forget that our FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS are up! A selection of our fabulous stamp sets are on SALE 40% OFF but only for the weekend and only while supplies last!

Happy kraftin'!

Here Comes July!

For my Canvo, I love making an intro page.  I used my July Club Canvo to create this fun page…


I incorporated some Sauna, Samba, Stone Blue, Flirty Fuchsia and Eucalyptus inks.


For my first week of July I started off with a swoop.  I used the July Stencil to create the daily spots for the week.  I chose to use the warm summer colours; Limoncello, Polished and Pixie Dust and touch of Twilight.


The plane image and the days of the week stamps are from the "Bullet Journal Basics" stamp set.

And here’s the second page of the week…
