It’s day two of the October sneak peeks at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, and we have a cute one for you today!  Stocking-full

This set, set from artist THAIS NARCISO features THREE main images and FIVE awesome coordinating sentiments! This fabulous set is called MERRY CHRIST-MOUSE!

IStocking-closeup decided to team up this stocking cutie with some Doodlebug paper, and then coloured him up with Copics to match.  I worked with some simple layers – I am trying to keep my Christmas cards a little flatter this year so it doesn’t cost a fortune to send!  What do you think – does it seem like it is missing something?

All the Krafty Girls and Guests listed below have lots of super FUN designs to show you featuring these awesome new stamps from Thais! And while you’re hopping around, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because we are giving away a gift card! You could WIN some Krafty $$$ to spend at the shop! {This winner will be announced at the party!}

Happy hoppin’!

Fairy Fun!

Have I got a treat for you today!  It’s time for the HOLIDAY STAMP SET RELEASE from Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps, and you are going to love all the new images that Kim has up her sleeve! Today is day ONE of the seek peaks, and we are showcasing two sparkly new Moonlight Whispers stamp sets by Annie Rodrigue! 

Pompom-cuNow, I am absolutely in love with both of the beauties featured today, but I decided to start with POMPOM FAIRY.  I coloured her up in some Christmas-themed colours to coordinate with the Doodlebug paper I still had from last Christmas (it’s still as cute a year later), and then had a bit of fun doodling and adding a sentiment.  I really loved all the details on this stamp and wanted her to take centre stage, so I decided to use a centre step card to give Miss PomPom lots of space.

Below you will find all the Krafty Girls & Guests who have goodies to show you today and while you’re visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN some $$ to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Shop!

It’s Beginning to look a lot like…

banner card…Christmas! Now wait – I know that it might seem early, but I was at one of our local big box stores this last weekend, and I was a little surprised to see rows and rows of Christmas lights! And given that the Ribbonistas from May Arts wanted to inspire you and have you ready well in time for the holidays, it seemed like the perfect time for our Handmade Christmas card hop!

Christmas card hop front

May Arts currently has some amazing classic ribbon and some fun new beauties featured right on the front page of the website.  One of my favourites happens to be a new arrival – the 1″ Adhesive Flag Banner ribbon. I decided to use some of the red, and see how I could use it in a “unconventional” way.
Christmas card hop flower

Simply by cutting each piece of the banner and then rounding the top, I was able to get a really pretty petal shape perfect for poinsettias. I used a hot glue gun to place each petal and then topped off the middle with some Perfect Pearls to give the illusion of the stamen in the flower.  I then added a bit of the Leaves ribbon for a punch of colour, and then added my favourite Eyelet ribbon along one of the layered edges for even more texture.  I love that this card lays almost completely flat (perfect for mailing), but has so much dimension!

Okay, if you haven’t had a chance to see what the other ladies have in store, make sure you pop on by all the blogs for some amazing inspiration.  Half of us are up today, and another set of ladies will be up tomorrow with even more inspiration!  Make sure you take the time to leave a comment, because May Arts is giving away 2 prizes of 2 spools each (one each day) from the Christmas Section. Trust me – it’s worth the effort to comment!
