KKS Challenge#148

Hey there my Krafty Friends and welcome to this week's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge which is a super easy one this week because all she's asking is for us to use our Favourite KKS Stamp. Easy Peasy!!

So I starting looking through all of my KKS Stamps and it was actually harder then I thought, just to pick one...maybe I should have done a collage. But then I came across Judy.

I loved her hair, I loved the way she was posed with her milkshake, I loved her heels! :) Definitely a favourite.

I bought this cherry charm ages ago especially to use on a card with Judy, and I've finally used it quit hoarding it. lol

The papers I used are from Life of the Party by Lime Twist (MME) I added some baker's twine and also one of our Every Day Trinkets from one of the first releases. Such handy little sentiments for the perfect finishing touch.

To see more off this week's challenge cards pop on over to the KKS Challenge blog.
Also Frugal Friday Specials are UP!!  Several of our most popular stamps are on special 30-50% OFF.

KKS Challenge #147

Hey there and welcome to Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge. This week's challenge feels very appropriate because our temperatures have certainly dipped and the fall season is upon us. So our challenge is to use fall colours on our cards this week.

I decided to play with Nettie from our latest release.

I was going through all my 6x6 pads trying to find some nice fall papers and came across the perfect one, All Spice from MME. Perfect rich warm colours to play with. I  paper pieced her dress and hair bow, but it probably kinda hard to see that.  Added a bit of cream lace and a flower from Michael s Recollections line.

To see more of this week's challenge cards or to play along, pop over to the KKS Challenge blog,  Also this week's Frugal Friday specials are now up.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

KKS Challenge day

Today we are sharing with you Annie's newest creations. She has designed some sweet girls that are all in the holiday spirit. Today's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge is a sketch and I chose to play with Penelope. I didn't use any Christmas paper because I thought this Sweet Tooth collection from BoBunny worked perfectly. Plus it matched my little dimentional sticker perfectly. :)

So here's the sketch...

and here's my card.

Day Two of KKS Sneak Peaks...

Hi there and welcome back to day two of Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps sneak peaks. Today I am sharing with you a very festive Lulu. She's all set for Christmas and looking super cute.

I had this striped paper in my stash that I thought really looked like wrapping paper so I went with and made my design look just like a gift. The Flower/bow I made using my scalloped Stampin Up punch. Just punch three to five circles onto your choice of DP and scrunch them up a bit. Adding a bit of water has a nice effect as well. Add a brad to the middle and shape the layers how you desire. Super easy too :)

To see more of today's peaks check out the link below.

Day One of KKS Sneak Peaks.

Welcome to this months Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps release. We're starting the sneak peaks off with our Holiday Trinkets.

I like to keep my Christmas cards sweet and simple as I have so many to make. So what I did was start with some embossing with my CB snowflake embossing folder. I wanted a little bit of colour to make it pop a little so I sponged some Stampin Up Soft Sky around the edges. Still looked like it needed a little some so I added a flourish from Cheery Lynn.

To see more sneak peaks head over to the KKS challenge blog.

Be sure to come back for more sneak peaks tomorrow.

KKS Challenge #145

Hi there and welcome to this week's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge which is to do paper piecing on your cards.

I chose to use this cute little gnome from the set Hangin' with my Gnomies. I paper pieced her hat and her skirt and did a touch of shading with my copics.

The Thank You sentiment is from the Everyday Trinkets set.

Check out what the rest of the Krafty girls created over at the KKS challenge blog, or create your own card and play along with us.

Have a great weekend. :)
