Cave Kids


Good morning!  I cannot tell you how happy I am to see the morning!  Our five year old has currently turned into a cave kid at bedtime, so stress free mornings are a blessing!  So this morning, I am going to forget about my real life cave kid, and celebrate these new ones from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Cavekid-release-angledCalled CAVE KIDS, this new set of stamps is delightful!  This fun set includes FOUR main images plus SEVEN awesome sentiments.  I teamed it up with the Kidosaurus stack from DCWV and some ribbon from May Arts for a colourful and fun card.  I hand lettered a little sentiment – a perfect plan to balance the empty space I had above the little dino I stamped!  This was such a fun card to create! 

Since it is Saturday, let’s talk “challenge”.  This week our challenge hostess is TRACY and her challenge is ANYTHING GOES! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with any stamp (but if you use a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp you’ll double your chances to WIN)!

All the Krafty Girls and Guests listed below have lots of super FUN designs to show you featuring these awesome new stamps from artist Cheryl Grant! And while you’re hopping around, be sure to leave a comment 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 Facebook party tonight!}

Coming for your brains!


Okay, now I have to admit that in our house, we happen to be fans of a little game called “Plant vs. Zombies”, but for the most part, I am not much of a zombie kind of gal. So imagine my surprise when I felt nothing but delight as I coloured up this new zombie image from Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps!

Zombie-release-closeupThis new set, called TRICK OR EAT really is a lot of fun.  And even though the images are perfect for the upcoming Halloween season, I thought this one in particular would make an awesome Valentine or “I love you” card for the zombie fan in your life any time of the year!  I coloured her up with Copics, using a combination of cool greys and green, working on blending the two around edges for a bit of a creepy look.  I wasn’t sure how it would turn out when I started, but I really love how it turned out!

You’ll find so many awesome creations on today’s hop featuring both new images and sentiments from the set! We know you are just going to LOVE these awesome ladies and be inspired by all the incredible designs!! This delicious new set comes with TWO main image stamps, plus SEVEN coordinating sentiment stamps!! They’re fabulous!

So get out there and enjoy some zombies – before they come and get your brains! Thanks for stopping by!


Wild About you!

Watermelon-Panda-full - CopyKraftin Kimmie new release september (wild about you)Hey everyone!!It is day ONE of the SEPTEMBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Sneak peeks, and today, I have a cute image to share with you  from the new “Wild About You” set. This set features a trio of adorable pandas with some scenery stamps to have you creating all sorts of unique designs!


I happened to find some cute DCWV paper in my stash called Melon Twist that was perfect with this cutie.  I coloured the image up with Copics, and the created a really simple layout of layered rectangles.  For a bit of texture, I added some May Arts ribbon and just a bit of bling.  This is definitely a little card that makes me smile!

Here in Calgary, we seem to have jumped right past fall and straight into winter (complete with heavy snowfall warnings for  the last two days), but I refuse to ignore this beautiful season – partially because one of my all time favourite stamps from Kraftin’ Kimmie happens celebrate this time of year! I happen to appreciate any excuse to use it!

So, for this week’s KKS Wonderful Wednesday challenge, Lulu from “Hey There, Punkin'” is making another appearance!  I Sept 10 closeupcoloured her up to match this cute Doodlebug paper, and although this happens to be Doodlebug’s fall collection from last year, a little birdie told me that Kimmie has the new one in the store right now (I might have picked one up)!  The sentiment is hand lettered and that fun ribbon happens to be from May Arts!  

Okay, so now it’s your turn to get krafty!  We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item….you name it!!
