I've used Lucas from Somebunny Loves You and kept it clean and simple with some Kraft cardstock and some strips of Doodlebug patterned paper.  I just love his bunny suit!

The Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp shop now carries a selection of 6x6 paper pads!  We are happy to offer these to our Canadian customers at the moment, due to the extra weight of the paper.

I've used Lulu holding an Easter basket from the set and coloured her up with my copics to match the Doodlebug papers that I chose.  I stayed pretty true to the sketch and didn't add any embellishments - I figured there was a lot going on with the patterned papers and didn't want to overwhelm.

Here I've used this super cute girl with a backpack and paired her with this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  The papers are some older My Mind's Eye and I added some buttons and natural trim.  I also used some felt grass on the bottom panel rather than a scalloped edge like the sketch called for.  Just wait until you see the other images in this set - super cute!

Krafty Peeks - Bookworm Trinkets!

Well it's Day TWO of our Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Are ya ready for more?

Today we’d like to introduce all you READERS to a beautiful new set of Trinkets!  We are very excited to share with you our GORGEOUS….BOOKWORM TRINKETS!

These circular sentiment stamps have been created and designed by the totally talented Krafty Girl, Nicole Aspinall!! They are made especially to fit in your 1 3/8ths and 1 ¾ inch punches, for quick and easy cutting!  This month we are releasing the BOOKWORM TRINKETS set which includes EIGHT trinkets in each set! You will get the set as a completely unmounted full sheet of deeply etched grey rubber.

Today we have awesome samples that the Krafty Girls have put together for you....and be sure to comment on each and every stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN the new BOOKWORM TRINKETS set!!! {All of this week's winners will be announced at the online party on Saturday night!}

I absolutely love these trinkets!  I read a lot and I read fast!  If I love a book, I can finish it in an afternoon.  I think that's why I fell in love with this particular trinket.  I've been known to stay up into the wee hours of the morning to finish a book.  I coloured it with my copics and mounted it on another circle and a scalloped circle.  I used the corner bookmark tutorial from Splitcoast stampers.  I love this particular book mark because I can slip it onto the cover while I'm reading (so I don't lose it - I'm forever misplacing bookmarks!).  I used Doodlebug papers and matching Washi tape.  I can see that I neglected to show you the inner part of the bookmark - where there's a pretty scalloped edge and some more patterned paper - oops!

Krafty Peeks - Feathers & Fur!

Today Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is previewing an EXCLUSIVE Moonlight Whispers stamp set! FEATHERS AND FUR is the newest of our special Krafty Klubhouse Kits…..we’ve been releasing a new one every few months and this is our first one for 2013!

Be part of the Krafty Klub and order your exclusive set (it will be released on SUNDAY) which features THREE special edition stamps designed by Annie Rodrigue PLUS SEVEN coordinating sentiment stamps!

Now let me be clear…..there is NO club to join or sign up for! ANYONE from ANYWHERE in the world can order this special set but ONLY at the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Shop!  These images will not be sold individually, but only as the complete set called…..FEATHERS AND FUR!

I've used this super cute dog image from the set and actually stamped it on Kraft paper rather than white cardstock.  I coloured it with my copics (when you colour on kraft cardstock you may have to use deeper colours than you might normally use) and did just a bit of shading with my prismacolor pencils.  The papers are from the Doodlebug Lovebirds 6x6 pad and I added a little bit of matching washi tape under my heart.  I adore this sentiment, but it there's a couple of others included in the set as well.

Check out the links below because all these Krafty Girls have gorgeous previews to share, featuring all three of the new images! Then come on back tomorrow for more peeks combined with this week's challenge!
