New Release at SCACD!


Today Susana Loves Stamps is releasing another new round of the unique, fresh and edgy MechAnimals rubber stamps and some fabulous new Far East and floral inspired rubber stamps.

SCACD Digital is also releasing today a fun little gaggle of digital ghoulies that scream fun and sweetness J  You can check them out HERE! 

We're having a fun blog hop today to showcase the new images. If you've been following along, you should have arrived here after visiting with the lovely Pat...wasn't her project awesome?! If you are just joining in, you can find the full blog hop list over at the SCACD Store Blog

I created a card with one of the awesome new MechAnimals, Jellyfish Dreams. The image was coloured with Copics. I used Distress Inks to give this card a grungy kind of my brown inks. :)  I used Anitque Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut stain. I pulled out two Dies by SCACD, Classic Corners and Contempo Compass Statement Corner for embellishment. I absolutely LOVE this sentiment that comes with Jellyfish Dreams. Isn't the font awesome?!

YG91, YG95, E41, E42, E43, E47, W1, W3, W5, W7

The new Susana Loves Stamps rubber release is available HERE. The new SCACD Digital images are available HERE. While you're at the store, make sure to take a peek at all the fabulous products Susana carries!

Our lovely international friends can find the rubber stamps at Quixotic Paperie

It's my pleasure to send you off to visit with the incredibly talented Elaine...I know she'll knock your socks off with her amazing creation. ;)

Thanks for joining us!

Winter Guardian

Hi friends!

I spent some time the other night colouring up one of the GORGEOUS digital stamps from did hear about the Carmen Medlin for SCACD Digital images right?! Susana has introduced some amazing new images  and also re-released some former images that were previously only available in rubber! Digital images are so versatile. You can resize and flip the images to suit your needs, not to mention the benefits of shopping from home in your jammies and being able to download to start colouring right away!

This is Winter Guardian...she just happens to be one of my favourites. :)  I LOVE this style of Carmen's. She's so elegant. With colder weather and the holidays soon approaching, she'd be perfect for your seasonal projects. I haven't had time to put her on a card yet, but I will be doing that soon. I added some Stardust Stickles to her wings and the snow in the globe. I think I'll likely add some glossy accents to the glass globe before placing her on my final project.

Copics:   Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59, BV29  Dress: B91, B93, B95, B97, BV29, N5, E42, E43, E47  Wings: BG70, B91, B93, E42, E40

September Krafty Kardmaking Kits!! (a Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!)

Do you live far away from the nearest Krafty store?? Is it hard to choose all your krafty goodies online without seeing them in person?? Or do you ever feel like you’re running out of krafty mojo?? Need a little help putting things together to make a fabulous card?? Or maybe you don’t have the time to design something yourself and want to just be able to put things together quickly! Well, we’ve taken out all the guess work for you and designed a Krafty Kardmaking Kit with everything you need to make SIX awesome cards AND have some goodies leftover to whip up some extras!

The September 2013 kit is designed to coordinate with our Holiday release stamps that we will be previewing this week. We’ve chosen coordinated patterned papers, cardstocks, envelopes, twine and several different types of embellishments!! With the September kit, you’ll also receive YOUR CHOICE of one of our gorgeous $8 stamps...choose whichever one you like from our many lines and styles of rubber stamps!

Additionally, our Krafty Girl design team have taken ONLY what's found in this kit (plus their own white cardstock, ink and colouring medium) and created SIX amazing card samples for you!!! And with this kit you'll receive a gorgeous colour handout, emailed directly to you, featuring pictures of the six cards PLUS some extras and the sketches to go with each creation!! It couldn't be any easier!!

Your Krafty Kit will be shipped in a sturdy box so that your goodies are nice and safe!! The VALUE of each kit is over $32 but our price this month is $25!! shipping in Canada and the US is $12 PLUS when you order the kit, we are offering FREE additional shipping on anything else in the shop that you order at the same time! So go ahead and load up with paper pads, ezmount, more stamps etc. because the shipping is covered! All your goodies will be shipped together in a box for only $12. (International customers please email me directly to go over your options for the kits!)

Not only that, but here’s a little special for all you krafty peeps ordering the September Kit: when you order the new kit, you will also receive 10% off the August kit when ordered at the same time!!! And again, only the one flat rate shipping!

This fantastic kit will be released on Saturday night at our LIVE online Holiday release party along with all of our new stamps being previewed this week!! 

As stated above, Kimmie divided one Kit between six of us Krafty Girls so you can get an idea of all you can make from just one kit. This is the card I made with my portion of one Kit. I used the Balancing Elf stamp...isn't he cute?! (if you like him, remember that you get to choose one $8.00 stamp as a part of the Kit) I used Classic Corner Dies by SCACD for the corner embellishments and Martha Stewart punches for the snowflakes and decorative lower border...that awesome white glitter cardstock is included in your kit! The edges were all sponged with Bundled Sage Distress Ink. 

Here's a list of all the Krafty Girls previewing the Kardmaking Kits today:  Thanks for stopping by!

If Friends Were Flowers...

Welcome to another fun challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...Fall Fun! 

My card is a bit of a stretch for the challenge, but it does have orange on it, which is a fall colour, right?? The stamp is part of the BFF Trinkets those trinkets! I embellished it up with an MFT die cut flourish, some pearls, flowers and some crocheted trim. Everything was sponged with a bit of Walnut Stain Distress Ink for antiquing. 

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Krafty Girls have created this week, and if you play along you could win a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp!
