Fun Weekend Recap for Kraftin' Kimmie!

Happy Saturday all! 

This weekend, some of the Krafty Girls from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps have got some LIVE classes going on at our Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Krafty Friends Facebook page.  All the classes this weekend are using our June release stamps, stencils, inks and dots!

Today at 5:00pm EST, I have my first of the 2 classes I am doing LIVE.  It entails a really simple card showing you how to use the Krafty Scenery 3 Stencil and how to make a sandy beach scene.  Plus we colour up the sweet beachy gal with some Copics from the "What's the Scoop?" stamp set.


Plus my second class on Sunday is how to make an easel card.  I'm featuring the "Underwater Fun" stamp set and the Krafty Scenery 3 stencil again.


All the LIVE classes this weekend will be saved to the KKS Facebook page so you can go back and watch them at anytime.

I hope you'll join me this week for at least one of my classes!

Happy Saturday and Happy 4th of July to my American friends!

Love You Bunches PLUS a Sale!

Happy Thursday!  I'm sharing a card made using one of my favorite stamp sets from Catherine Pooler Designs... It's the "Veggies Please!" stamp set plus it's coordinating die, "Veggies Please Dies".


For my card, I used the following ink: Samba, Sangria, Orange Peel, Shea Butter, Sage, Lime Rickey and Orange Twist.  That cute little tag is part of the "Shaker Tag Die" set.

Starting TOMORROW....



In addition to our FREE SHIPPING event, we are restocking our CP Perfect Blocks which includes two NEW block sizes for your stash.



One is long and lean and perfect for border stamps and bigger sentiments and the other is a 4.25" square that is great for larger image stamps and fits right in your hand.


We also have a small batch of restocks on the ink colors that were sold out.  All the newest colors, Pink Champagne, Orange Peel, Hot Tub & Sangria are back!

Happy Shopping and to all my American friends, Happy Fourth of July on Sarurday!

Happy Wednesday!  And Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians today!

In honour of this special day, I did indeed create some VERY simple Canada Day cards for you.

Hello Divers!



Welcome to another fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

This week your hostess is Krafty Girl, Melanie and her challenge for you is .... NO LINE TECHNIQUE!

For my no-line card today, I decided to start my colouring by using "Party Peach" ink to stamp the images from the "Underwater Fun" stamp set.


I coloured them up with Copic Markers and then I added some of the finer details of the images using some Polychromos Pencils.

I think it turned out fabulous!


Here's the list of my 6 favourite no-line coloured inks from KKS; Party Peach, Pretty in Pink, Salty Sea, Bubbly Blue, Totally Taupe and Granite Grey.  I chose the line colour based on my subject or colour scheme I'm going to use.

Club Canvo for July!

Happy Tuesday all!

Here's a little bit about how the Club Canvo subscription works...

Club Canvo is designed to take the guess work out of your monthly themes. Each product is carefully curated by Catherine to inspire your creativity all month long.

Club Canvo ships by the 5th of each month, giving you plenty of time to organize and plan and create your spreads. For example, your January Themed Club Canvo will ship to you at the start of December. You will have the products in your hands before they are available to anyone else!

So here a few of my July Club Canvo spreads...

Thanks for stopping by!

With the "Underwater Fun" stamp set you're going to have a ball!  I just had to make an underwater scene for little yellow submarine.  I used all kinds of blue and greeny-blue KKS inks to create this background along with the new Nautical NettingStencil for the sea floor and the Summer Sunbeams Stencil for the sun beams streaming through the water and finally the Wonderful Waves Stencil for the fun motion of the water.

I chose to make my card interactive today too!
