Day 2 of New Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!

Good Morning, Everyone!

Welcome to Day 2 of our New Release Peeks from Kraftin' Kimmie!  Today we have another
fabulous sentiment set from Becky, Christmas Cheer~

I paired one of the sentiments with a caroler from last month's Angel Voices Stamp Set; the two seem made for each other!
So I did something that I have not done in ages- DISTRESS!  These sweet carolers have a vintage look to me, so my little one was dressed in vintage colors- a combination of coloring and paper piecing- and placed on a tattered and sponged card with a heat embossed sentiment.  

Ready to see the rest of the awesome inspiration from the rest of the team?  Be sure to leave a little love at each stop along the way for a chance to win some Krafty Kash!

A Few Challenges in Fall

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick post to share a card I made just for fun (always nice to do that!)  after coloring up the image for the 30 days of Coloring Challenge.
I could not resist a few stamps from Unity during their recent new release.  I just had to have this gorgeous image.

This will be for my mom, who's favorite season is fall.  When I think fall, I imagine walking through the woods, quiet and serene.  That is what I wanted to convey.  Beautiful fall colors, but still a sense of quiet.

I was inspired by the colors from Unity's challenge this month-

And by the sketch at MOJO Monday~

 Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is - Autumn is in the Air
Virginia's View Challenge is all about coloring!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Day 1 of Kraftin' Kimmie's October Release!

Hi Everyone!

It is hard to believe that the October New Release is already upon us at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  The new CLEAR stamps have been a huge hit!  I know I love them!  
This week we are sharing peeks of more Christmas and winter stamp sets.  I adore today's peek~Happy Winter Days~Such a fun, versatile and trendy set!  

So fun!

The sentiment is from last month's sentiment set, The Magic of Christmas.  
I simply stamped, colored and fussy cut out multiple ornaments and shimmered them all up with a clear Wink of Stella pen.  Some bright pink cs and striped washi tape anchor the sentiment.

I used the sketch at Happy Little Stampers-

At Papertake Weekly, the challenge is 'Anything Goes'.
Addicted to Stamps and More- 'CAS'
And the challenge this week at Virginia's View is all about color!

A Sketch for this Week's Challenge!

Happy Monday All, and Happy October!

Goodness, it is that time of year when the days get shorter and the air is cool.  It is a good time to stay in and craft!
We have a versatile sketch for you today at 'The Challenge'~

So, I turned and flipped the sketch to fit my image~

I was inspired by the colors at Colour Q~

And Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-  'Anything Goes'. 

I am such an animal lover and I could not resist this adorable pooch set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Canine Capers 1.  I colored this pup with Copics and kept the rest of the card fairly clean and simple, using just a few enamel dots, baker's twine and a button to embellish.

30 Days of Coloring

Hi Everyone!
 Just a quick post tonight to share the first of my 30 days of Coloring Challenge piece. 

This was the perfect reason to ink up one of my new Unity images.  Love, love, love this poncho-clad gal.  I will get her on a card later. 

Hope you have a great, crafty weekend!

Take a Peek at this New 'No Peeking' Stamp!

Good Morning and Happy Saturday Everyone!

It is a beautiful Saturday in St Louis and there is a definite fall feel to the air.  This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year.  My most favorite time?  The Christmas Season!
Kraftin' Kimmie has an amazing new SUPER Sized Holiday Card Kit with what has to be the most adorable Santa image ever!

I have to say, this Santa is soooo cute, you really do not need too much more to embellish your card.  I fussy cut my image out and placed it on a 'window' that I made with a Stampin' Up framelit and their new Softly Falling embossing folder.  I was going to turn the window into a shaker, but decided to adhere a few of the darling wood veneer stars in my not-so-realistic night sky.
I love the colors of the papers in the kit- oh, the greens!  Gorgeous stuff!  

The red and white baker's twine ties into the Santa red shirt.  

Head on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog where you can get more great
inspiration for this kit from the Krafty Girls!  

Have an amazing weekend!

Today is Day One of the Hop that was created by and made famous by
Amy Tsuruta!

on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog.  

I love the warmth and vibrancy of fall colors, so I combined the earthiness of coffee and fall- brown- with the more vibrant colors of fall.  
The cup is a from the Funny Coffee Vol 1 Stamp Set from Skipping Stones Design. My 
background was made with my brand new toys, Brushos and Color Bursts in orange and merlot.  
Once I finished playing with my powdered inks, I stamped some floral images from the Skipping Stones Design set, Dandelion Dreams.  
The coffee cup was fussy cut out and popped up on dimensional adhesive.  I cut a banner and 
stamped my punny sentiment on it.
