KKS Challenge 171, Use your Favourite KK Stamp

Hi there and welcome to this week's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge, which is to use your favourite Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamp! Really? Just one?!

Well I've definitely have more then one but today I chose to use our Krafty Katastrophe,   which is our special edition stamp from this past years Krafty Day.

I don't have a cat, but I do have a very large dog that likes to lie on my craft room floor, which isn't all that big and I'm forever rolling over her poor tail. :( Don't be alarmed, it's mostly just fur. So anyway, I found this cute little box at a thrift shop and thought it would come in handy for something. I Loved the bright colours that are on it. And now with this cute lil Krafty Girl and a few flowers,  it's even more appealing :)

Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to play along with this week's challenge.

KKS March Release Day, Woot Woot!!!

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 TWO sweet new sets with the kiddos from Cheryl Alger........DOWN ON THE FARM and FAIRY FRIENDS!! We also have a fun new set from Emilie Goulet called PRETTY LITTLE PIXIES! And of course we have an amazing new set of SIX awesome stamps in our SASSY SPRITES collection with a coordinating FABULOUS FRAMES set and they are simply A-mazing! OH and don’t forget the TWO incredible new sets of TRINKETS ...... SPRING TRINKETS and FAIRY TRINKETS!

Love, Love, Love these trinkets. So many fun ways to play with them. I love colouring them in with my copics starting with a lighter colour on the inside and gradually making it more intense closer to the edge. And if you have a variety of circle punchs or spellbinders you can add even more to the look of them, building them up. 

How cute is Lucas as a lil farmer?! So sweet. The papers I used with Lucas are from A Happy Heart (MME) And Stella Rose (MME) I did a little bit of distressing and inking, added some twine and a charm that I thought looked like it may pass for a pitch fork and a few brads.

With Lexi I love how this all came together. Another colour combo that I absolutely love, pink and brown. I coloured her with my copics and carefully trimmed her out and added some pop dots. I used a Cheery Lynn die to make the glittery flourish and added a little more bling with some tiny little gems. I found these beautiful flowers at Michaels in there $1.50 bins.( they come in a package of 4) Anyway,  when she rang me through and I realized that they were on sale for .50  I went back and stashed up on some more!! I love when you get such a awesome steal :) Happy Dance!!

With Pixie Lulu I coloured her with my copics then carefully trimmed her out and added some pop dots to make her stand out a little bit more. Added a flourish of bling behind her and I added the sentiment to the bottom corner heat embossing it with some silver.

Now how sweet is Lexi with this little lamb. I think she's one of my favourite's from this release. I wanted to keep the colours really soft so I chose to go with one of my favourite colour combos, teal and brown. I found the perfect papers in a MME, Breeze 6x6 pad. Added some sheer ribbon and primas and it came together quite nicely.

KKS challenge #168

Welcome to this week's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps challenge. With Easter and spring  hopefully right around the corner this week's challenge is to use pastel colours on your card.

I chose to use Lulu from the Love is the Best Medicine set. The papers I used are called Raspberry Pop and I picked them up in a 12x12 slab from Walmart.

I added some primas and the heart border that I made using my Martha Stewart border punch and the sentiment is a rub on from Stampin up.

Don't forget that the Frugal Friday specials are now on and join us if you'd like to play along with this week's challenge.

Have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by.
