Kraftin' Kimmie November Release Hop!

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 new sets from Cheryl's OFF WE GO and DELIGHTFUL VERSES.  We also have an adorable set from Emilie Goulet called CUTE-A-SAURUS!  And of course we have an amazing new set of SIX gorgeous new TRAVEL GIRLS from Annie Rodrigue that are simply stunning!  OH and don’t forget the exclusive line of sentiment stamps called TRAVEL TRINKETS by the lovely Nicole Aspinall!
You will get to see most of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our November Krafty Hop.  As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of these incredible stamps from the new release!  And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available.  And of course, as always, we have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’.  The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time. 

And if all that isn't enough for you, Kimmie has put OVER 200 stamps on special!  And some of them are retiring!  So hurry over so you can scoop up those stamps you've been wanting.

I've used another one of the new images from Cheryl Alger's Delightful Verses set.  I had so much fun colouring this image with my copics, and I used some blender solution on a washcloth to add texture to the grass.  The layout is an older Deconstructed Sketch and I added lots of homespun touches for embellishment.  The papers are from the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic paper pad and I matched them up with some Stampin' Up cardstocks.

Use the sketch she has provided as inspiration for your card or scrapbook page! And the random winner of this week's challenge will receive the new MYRIAM, as featured on her gorgeous creation!

I've used the gorgeous Priya for my card.  I coloured her up in some jewel tones and added some Stardust pen to give her a bit of gold trim.  I left my panels un-matted, for some reason I've been digging the look lately.  I added some gold ribbon and a die cut flower as well.  The sentiment is included when you buy this stamp.

Krafty Peeks Day 3 - You're Dino-mite!

Today at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps we are sharing a new set by the totally talented Emilie Goulet!  We've got something super cute and so unique for you!  Perfect for the little kidlets in your life....and maybe some old fossils too!  It's CUTE-A-SAURUS!  Emilie has created a fun set of DINOSAUR images for your cards and scrapbook pages!

Below you will find a list of all the Krafty Girls who are sharing PEEKS with you today!  And as you're hoppin' around, be sure to leave a comment at each stop because someone will win a package of these fun stamps!

I've used this hatchling dino for my card today and paired him up with some Echo Park A Boy's Life papers.  I sponged all of my edges with some Ranger Vintage Photo ink to dirty it up a little.  I added a button and some twine for embellishment and a sentiment flag along the side of the image.  

All our new NOVEMBER 2012 stamps will be available on Sunday at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!  And come on back tomorrow because not only will we have a fantastic new challenge for you, but we'll be revealing the NEW stamps by Annie Rodrigue!  Get ready to take a trip around the world!

Kraftin' Kimmie November Peeks - Day 2

Welcome back to our NOVEMBER Krafty Peeks!  Today we are excited to share the TWO new SETS by artist Cheryl Alger!  First we have some characters that you are already familiar with.....Lulu, Lexi and Lucas! And we are very excited to share a sweet new inspirational set by Cheryl.  It's OFF WE GO and DELIGHTFUL VERSES.

All the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests listed below have lots of super designs to show you, so be sure to hop over to each of them! And while you're there, be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away one of EACH of the new sets!  You could WIN the new OFF WE GO or DELIGHTFUL VERSES set.

I've used one of the images in the Delightful Verses set.  These images are so sweet and I kept my card simple to showcase the image as well as the coordinating verse.  I used an older sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches blog and some Echo Park For The Record 2 papers.  I coloured the image with my copics and coated the lantern with my Sakura Clear Glaze pen.  Easy peasy!

Come on back tomorrow to check out MORE new stamps we have to show you, this time by artist Emilie Goulet!  And ALL the new stamps will be available on Sunday at the KKStamps Shop!

Happy hoppin'!

Kraftin' Kimmie Meets SFYTT!

Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!  Today I'm your hostess and my challenge to you is to use a food and/or drink themed image on your card.  I've also paired up this challenge with my second Sketch For You To Try card for November.  

I used Grace for my image and flipped the sketch so that Grace wasn't looking off the card.  I used some Echo Park This & That Christmas papers and added some crochet ribbon as well.  Make sure you hop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie blog to see samples from the Krafty Girls and Guests as well as link up your entry!

And don't forget to check out my sketch sisters to see the fabulous creations they've come up with.  And you can visit Jen's blog to link up your card for your chance to win big at the end of the year!

November Sketch For You To Try!

Welcome back to November's Sketch For You To Try!  We have a super fun sketch this month that made me think on it for a bit before I sat down to stamp!  Love that!

This month we're sponsored by the Sweet Stamp Shop.  They have some super cute stamps so make sure you check them out!

I've used one of the Holiday Trinket stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps and some new Christmas papers from Echo Park (Very Merry, I think?!).  I added some stitching, brads and ribbons for embellishment but kept the rest pretty simple -  when I'm making Christmas cards I always like to think about mailability (is that a word?).  

Here's the fabulous sketch! I hope you'll play along with us at some point this month!

You'll definitely want to hop over and see what the rest of my sketch sisters have cooked up for you - they're amazing!
