Just one More Page


Welcome back to another month of Skrappy Fun
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!



We challenge you to make Anything BUT a Card.



So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags, boxes...pretty much anything that includes a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp . Make sure it's a NEW creation!  As soon as we have at least five people playing, we'll be giving away a PRIZE...one lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!


You have a whole month to play along until 
Monday, November 25th at midnight EST.
Also be sure to share your creations on the Krafty Friends facebook page because we LOVE to see your stuff!


I made a bookmark with a simple watercolour background and a sentiment stamped in Wicked Black Ink from the JUST ONE MORE PAGE stamp set. I love being able to take a sentiment from a set and making it the focus of the project. I glittered the edges of the bookmark with stardust stickles in the style of Krafty Girl Brigitte! I also added a bit of texture with our Wonky Chevron stencil and Lovely Lagoon ink.

Solid Holiday...a Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek

Welcome to day 2 of the
OCTOBER 2019 release for
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Today we have another holiday set by our fabulous
artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen called.....
SOLID HOLIDAY!



Such a lovely assortment of solid festive images.  They can be used as accessory images on your creations, on tags, bags, stamped in coloured inks, create patterned papers...so many possibilities!


I created two small tags featuring some of the stamps from SOLID HOLIDAY. I combined our new PERFECT PLAID stencil with the deer head for a more masculine tag. Krafty inks used include Wicked Black, Granite Grey, Berry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and our brand new STORMY SKY. I also used a couple of red dots from our FESTIVE DOTS. The tree tag was created using our Krafty Scenery stencil for the hills and a variety of inks including Bubbly Blue, STORMY SKY, Charming Chartreuse, Mossy Meadow and Marvelous Mocha. Both tags were trimmed in stickles. The "ornaments" on the tress are little dollar store gems.



Check out Solid Holiday in action as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today. Be sure to leave some love at each stop because I'm going to give away some krafty $$ to a lucky commenter!

Autumn Colours at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello and welcome to another fun
Saturday Challenge
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!



I'm the hostess for this week's theme,
AUTUMN COLOURS!

I actually pulled out one of our winter stamps to use for this autumn challenge...I've always loved the versatility of our stamps! I selected the adorable raccoon from POLAR PALS and stamped him in TOTALLY TAUPE INK on Arches cold pressed watercolour paper. The entire scene was painted in watercolours. This little guy is normally holding a snowball, but I painted it as an apple and added a stem to fit with our theme. 




Each Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week. You are welcome to enter as many times as you like with a new creations. You are welcome to use any stamp, however using Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and products will earn you double entries.  Each submission will enter you into the monthly draw of a $40 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

Halloween challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello and welcome to fun
Saturday Challenge at Kraftin'

 Kimmie Stamps!


Our challenge this week is....
HALLOWEEN!


I used several KKS products with two stamp sets for my card this week. I started by using our SO MANY CIRCLES stencil to create a moon by lightly sponging some GRANITE GREY ink. I then added a bit more shading to the moon with some copics. I then sponged the sky with Granite Grey' ink and stamped the tree and cat from SPOOKY SILHOUETTES and the sentiment from PUMPKIN KISSES in WICKED BLACK ink. I added some additional depth to the sky with Wicked Black and PURPLE PANSY. The grass was done in MOSSY MEADOW ink. The sky was finished off with some bats sponged in Wicked Black ink with our BATS AND MOONS stencil and I added a touch of white coloured pencil to the moon.

Inspirational Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps


It's INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...
the day one of our Krafty designers provides you with a bit of extra
krafty inspiration to help you get creative
with your krafty stamps!

Since our September release featured Christmas themed stamps and products, I felt it would be fun to continue an early festive mood by revisiting one of our older holiday sentiment sets, CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS SENTIMENTS. 

This set features several lovely sentiments in different fonts perfect for so many Christmas projects. I stamped one of the sentiment in  Wicked Black ink on some patterned paper. All paper edges were sponged in Marvelous Mocha ink then topped with gold paint and bit of gold frantage that was hit with a heat gun. I added a chipboard ornament painted in gold and finished it off with a few dots of red stickles. 




CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS SENTIMENTS is on sale this week so hop on over to the shop to scoop it up. 

Don't forget to check out all the new release goodies from this month. We have new stamps, stencils, dots and ink!

Blessings!
