KKS Release Day!!!

Well welcome back!! It’s Krafty RELEASE Day at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!! And we’re celebrating with a KRAFTY HOP!! 

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of AMAZING new stamps from all our artists! We’ve got something for everyone!! We've got a sweet new set with the kiddos and their pets from Cheryl's BEST FUR-IENDS! We also have an adorable set from Emilie Goulet called PARTY MONSTERS! And of course we have an amazing new set of SIX gorgeous CIRCUS GIRLS from Annie Rodrigue that are simply stunning! OH and don’t forget the exclusive line of sentiment stamps that will coordinate with lots of images but especially our new circus girls.... called CIRCUS TRINKETS by the lovely Nicole Aspinall!!! 

You will get to see most of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our DECEMBER Krafty Hop! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of these incredible stamps from the new release!! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available!

Today I have two cards to share with you. First a card with Lexi and her cat. I'm really happy with the way this card turned out. The papers are again from my big box of misc. scraps so I'm not sure what line they are from. I think I even mixed and matched from different companies. I coloured Lexi using my copics. My biggest struggles with colouring are with fur, and my grass techniques need some work. Didn't turn out too badly. Just don't look too closely. ;) 

I added a border using a MS punch, a couple of flowers with some orange brads to match and voila.

My second card is one of my favourites from this release, Arielle. I wanted to use papers that would look like she was up in the sky so I came across these. I punched out the stars onto some silver sparkly paper and pop dotted them randomly. Added lots of bling around Arielle and created the jagged border with an EK border punch and added even more bling. I coloured Arielle with my copics but her clothing was all done with Stardust gelly pens  I also gave her eyelids and lashes for a sexy look. 

And of course, as always, we have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’!! The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time!!

***ONE LAST THING!!! Our HUGE RETIREMENT SALE is still going on right now at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps with so many stamps up to 75% OFF and some stamps as low as $1.50!! Say what?? Yep!! We need to make room for all the new stamps coming our way in 2013, so we're retiring a lot of stamps!! Keep in mind, once they're gone, they're gone and some have already sold out!!! So scoop up the ones you've had your eye on or pass your wishlist over to a loved one!! What a great way to fill your stocking!!!

Now let's get hoppin'!!

For this weeks sketch challenge I chose to use Clementine. I came across these papers from my "scrap box" and thought they were so bright and fun they'd be a perfect fit for this Circus theme release. And these embellishments that I've never known what to do with I thought were kinda fun too, so I added them as well. Added a little decorative rick rack strip from Just the Edge. And Tah Dah!!! :)

Kraftin' Kimmie Previews....Day TWO!

Welcome to day two of Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps December release. Today I will be sharing two cards with you.

My first card is with Lexi and Libby. I embossed the background with a cuttlebug folder that I thought resembled bubbles onto some glossy white card stock. I added some fun double patterned ribbon that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

My second card I used Lucas. The paper is Paws and Claws from TPC Studio. I coloured the image with my copics and added a Thank You Trinket.  The silver rim around it i made with this old tool from making memories that kinda squeezes the metal edges to together to create a tag. Haven't used it in years but thought it would look cute, kinda like a dog tag.

KKS challenge #157

This week's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge is Baby It's Cold Outside.  I chose to make a tag using one of our Holiday Trinkets. With the holidays approaching rapidly it will make a nice addition to any gift. The background of the tag I made awhile ago as a make n' take but never really completed so I added to it. I think we made it by stamping the snowflakes with versamark ink and then using panpastels over top of it. It was along time ago so I kinda forget the steps of this technique.

I heat embossed the trinket with silver embossing powder onto navy blue card stock and used my spellbinders to cut it out. I then added some more layers behind it using my new spellbinders that I picked up at Winners for $9.99! Sweet deal, so I got two. :)

I finished it by adding some sparkly ribbon and some gem flourishes which made me think of  the snow being whipped around on a blustery day.

Don't forget about our amazing RETIREMENT SALE going on NOW! There are over 200 of our stamps on SPECIAL 20-75% OFF and a good bunch of them are retiring, so scoop them up while you can! They are SELLING OUT!! 

Also our November Gimme Kimmies Kits are only available until Sunday night, so grab the new stamps at a discount now!! ALSO we are releasing the December stamps a little early so that you can order them in time for the holidays!!! Krafty Peeks start on WEDNESDAY!!!
