This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, Marieke and your challenge theme is....

For my animal card creation today, I chose to feature the super adorable “From the Otter Side” stamp set.  I just can’t get enough of these furry little fellas…

I masked off my otters and then left a heart shaped void around them.  I used the fun “Happy Heart Stencil” to create a heart filled back drop for them!

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 fun sketch to inspire you for the month of February! You don't have to use it but it's there for you to use if you need a little kickstart....feel free to use it any time!

There are two ways to enter our challenges! 1) you can link up your entries at the bottom of this post and 2) share your KKS creations in our Krafty Friends facebook group! We can't wait to see what you create!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’ve had an amazing week!

I’m here today sharing my card featuring lots of pink tulips from the “Loving Tulips” stamp set from Power Poppy! I die cut out y bouquet and the fun polka dot sentiment using the coordinating dies. I decided to create my own striped watercolor paper to place my bouquet on to today.

Plus I finished the inside of my card with a sentiment and a grouping of frilly tulips stamps along the bottom edge.

Introducing... It's a Dog's Life!

Welcome back to Day TWO of our January Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Today we are sharing a fabulous new stamp set by Emilie Goulet! It's called…

This set features two sassy ladies who love their tiny furry friends! One is busy shopping with her little puppy in her purse and the other looks like she is taking hers on an adventure! Aren't they paw-sitively awesome?! The set comes with the two main images plus five coordinating sentiments!

For my card today I wanted to featuring that awesome PAWPRINTS stencil for my full back ground.  I took the new Charming Chartreuse, Yummy Yellow, Pumpkin Patch, Ruby Red, Purple Petunia and Bubbly Blue and used a soft blending sponge and created this wonderful rainbow back ground.

I added my fabulously dressed shopping spree gal in her sunny rainbow frock and her sweet purse puppy to the back ground along with a hand-drawn frame, some random stitching and some of our fun, new RAINBOW DOTS.

Don't forget about the February INK OF THE MONTH! Each month we will put one of our Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks on SALE 15% OFF for the rest of the month!  For February the Ink of the Month is......

This adorable stamp set celebrates our four-legged besties! It features a sweet little puppy called Cuddles and his human pals! There are five main images, several accessory stamps and four coordinating sentiment stamps!

I made two cards to share with you today.  I kept my first card fairly simple for you too!
The first card features that sweet little girl and her polka-dot Dalmatian puppy…
Isn’t she adorable! I also used our new stencil, “SPRINKLES” to create my own patterned paper for the top of the card base.

For my second card, I used the Cuddles in a circle image.  I stamped all of my puppies onto my back ground paper first, then colored it in with a rainbow of Copic Markers.  This card features the little fella with his best pal!
If you close enough, I have also used the new colors of Dots, our new RAINBOW DOTS!!
