KKS Saturday Challenge - Black



Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


This week's challenge is BLACK!!!! I wanted to create a CAS card this week so I used some very basic supplies, paper, jewels and pop dots and that's it!!!

I used one of our Halloween stamps - WITCH WILLA and one of the awesome sentiments she comes with as the main focus of my card.  Once she was finished being colored I just doodled the frame and added some jewels. Easy Peasy!

We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!!

September Release Day 4 - Daddy-O and Holiday Momma



Welcome back to Day FOUR of our September Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Can you believe we aren't even HALF way through all of the NINE new stamp sets we are releasing?! This week is going to be super fun!!!!

Today we are sharing TWO out of FOUR new stamp sets by our incredible artist, Annie Rodrigue! I know a lot of you have been waiting for these holiday goodies....and it's time!
First is HOLIDAY DADDY-O!


We've got a fabulous stamp set featuring the patriarch of the family and he's putting the star on the top of the Christmas tree! It's a lovely large image plus four coordinating sentiments!
Next up is HOLIDAY MOMMA!


Doesn't she look like every momma? I love her holiday sweater! She's busy unpacking all the Christmas stockings and decorations. And the stamp set includes five coordinating sentiments!


I choose to work with Daddy-O on my card for today's peek! I used paper by Maja Design (Home for the Holidays) and combined that with twine, pearls, doilies, and some flowers. I went with a more rustic look - confession - I was watching a very old Christmas movie...Rocky Mountain Christmas....with Dolly Parton and the movie was very rustic so I continued that theme on my card.

Have you ever done that?

Welcome to Day THREE of our September Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Today we are sharing a second fabulous set from artist, Becky Pearce! This one is an add-on to the set from yesterday! Did you love Shake It Up?? Well, this one is SHAKE IT UP - POLAR BEARS!

This sweet little 4x4 clear stamp set is full of roly poly polar bear images with lots of accessories and gorgeous sentiments! You can use it on it's own or in addition to the Shake It Up snowglobe stamp set from yesterday's peeks for an endless combination of possibilities!! There's a total of SIXTEEN stamp sets in this adorable set!


I wanted to do something a bit different with this set. I wanted to create a cute scene using the super cute polar bears - the background was created using Distress Inks with frantage on top. the bottom snow I made using liquid applique with glitter. I added a few white gum drops and some silver glitter tape. The polar bears I fussy cut out and added a bit of shading.
