Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps October Hop & Shop

  Woohoo!!!

Today we are celebrating all the new fabulous goodies in our October Release that are NOW available in the

 Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!



All three of our new stamp sets, plus two new stencils and a new hybrid ink colour were released yesterday along with our exclusive ADD-ON BUNDLE, 

and we're excited to share it ALL with you in a fabulous krafty HOP!


I absolutely had to use the adorable NARLY DUDE! set today!! These guys are just so darn cute! And I figured why not pair them with the awesome  Exclusive Charming Christmas Chipboard ornaments in this month's ADD ON BUNDLE to set a christmas scene! I used pretty pink, blue and gold sparkly embossing powders and an embossing ink pen to turn these ornaments into fabulous glittery creations! Of course the New SWEET SNOWFLAKES Stenciled background had to have lots of pretty colours, including the New FESTIVE FUSCHIA, Ocean Opulence and Aqua Adventure Inks.



I diecut a Christmas tree from white cardstock and sponged it with the New FESTIVE FUSCHIA and Pretty In Pink Inks and then rubbed on some of that amazing sparkly Moonstone Glimmer Paste over top. I decorated with some diecut stars and the beautiful Classic Krafty Dots, again from the ADD ON BUNDLE. I just love the glitter in these enamel dots!! I coloured up the sweet narwhals with Copic Markers and added some Stickles and white gel pen highlights. 


I added the first part of a sentiment from Wish Upon A Star and then stamped Narly from the NARLY DUDE to finish it off, again inked in that beautiful FESTIVE FUSCHIA Ink. I finished off my scene with the snowflake charm from the ADD ON BUNDLE and added one more glittery Krafty Dot to the center! I think this is a super fun way to wish anyone a Merry - or Narly - Christmas!

So let's check everything out as we hop around the Krafty Design Team's blogs today!  Grab a nice hot beverage, sit back and relax while we take you on the krafty tour!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps October Krafty Peeks Day THREE! Narly Dude Plus A Challenge!

 Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the October Release

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!




We are so excited to share a fantastic set

by artist

Melissa Baker-Nguyen called...

NARLY DUDE! 

We have another fabulous Arctic animal set to share today! These jolly narwhals are ready to send out amazing greetings for so many different occasions! 

I am sooo excited to share this sweet set!! I had so much fun creating with these adorable creations. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to create a rainbow of colours on my card!


I coloured the cute narwhals up with Copics, giving them rainbow tusks and adding a dot of Stickles and white gel pen highlights. Then, I got to work creating a pretty background! I dry embossed a white cardstock background with the WHIMSICAL WINDS Stencil and blended over top with the New FESTIVE FUSCHIA and Ocean Opulence Krafty Kolours Inks. I love the pretty purple colour created when the pink and blue inks blend!! I created a star charm from the beautiful exclusive chipboard in the ADD-ON BUNDLE, covered it with white ink and then covered it with FESTIVE FUSCHIA and Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. 

I diecut a rainbow from white cardstock and sponged it with FESTIVE FUSCHIA, Purple Pansy & Summer Sunshine Inks and then used my finger to spread the Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste from the Add-On Bundle over top! This Glimmer Paste is so awesome and sparkly!! I stamped one of the awesome sentiments from the set and added some pretty sequins from the Bundle!

Today's featured set is an adorable icy Arctic set

PUFFINS & PALS!


These sweet puffins and their chilly friends are going to make you smile with their cute faces and awesome sentiments!


I am so excited to share this card with you featuring this awesome puffin and his friends! I couldn't stop smiling while creating this bright fun card!! I love the New FESTIVE FUSCHIA Ink, and I paired it with the pretty Purple Pansy Krafty Kolours Ink for a fun stencilled background using the New WHIMSICAL WINDS Stencil. I also sponged it around the edge of my cardbase to create a custom base that matched perfectly! I coloured up these cuties with Copics and added foam dots for extra dimension. I created the little scene with a stitched snowbank and a frosty pond created with watercolour using some Zebra Funwari pens.

After stencilling the background I used the Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste included in the OCTOBER ADD ON BUNDLE to add a glittery element to the windy swirls. This Moonstone paste is amazing!! I also used the Krafty Dots and sequins from the Bundle to embellish and stamped a cute sentiment from this fantastic set!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Saturday Challenge #600 - Easel Cards!

  Good morning and welcome to another

fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge


Are you ready for another fun and krafty challenge to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing?
We've got some fabulous ideas for you 
and can't wait to see what you create!


This week, Krafty Girl Tamara is your hostess and her challenge theme for you is: 

MAKE AN EASEL CARD!

This is such a great challenge! Easel cards are super easy to make, but look like you've had to figure out all kinds of details! Basically, you fold an A2 card base that is top folding - so cut your paper to 4 1/4" x 11" and fold at 5 1/2". Now you have a top folding cardbase. Next - Score the top of the cardbase at 2 3/4" so it essentially can bend in half. Now, you can add a focal layer with your stamped sentiment, scene, etc, and only glue the bottom part of that element (I'm using a scalloped rectangle for my card) to the bottom fold of the card base. When you add a popped up sentiment inside, your card becomes an easel and will rest against the sentiment. It will simply fold flat to mail however! You can embellish as desired!! 


I decided to use the New Long Landscapes stamp with the beautiful sailboat scene to be the focal image on this card! I stamped it in Totally Taupe for a no-line effect and coloured it in with Zebra Mildliners on watercolour paper. They are actually waterbased and you can watercolour with them!  I also stamped a couple clouds from the Valiant Viking set with Bubbly Blue Ink. I used the New Diagon-illy Stencil with the beautiful New Incredible Indigo Ink to create a fun stripy background! I used a sentiment on the front of the card from Life Is The Bubbles and some Krafty Dots, and then I added one of the Long Landscapes sentiments popped up inside the card. 



Each and every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and you are welcome to enter as many times as you like.
These must be new creations and you are welcome to use any stamp, however, using Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp products will earn you double entries!
