I'm the Hostess!!

Good morning, krafty friends!!  I happen to be the hostess for this week's challenge over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog so I have a fun card to share with you!!!

My challenge for you this week is LET IT SNOW!!!  And I decided to play with one of the new October stamp sets just released at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  This one is by artist Cheryl Grant and is called CANDY CANE KISSES!!

I coloured up Lexi and her pretty holiday wreath with my Copic markers and I used a paper pad I got last year by MME called Merry Little Christmas!  I just love this paper pad for it's non-traditional holiday colours!

My favourite card base is kraft, so I used it for a square base with white matting.  I added some flags in different patterns across the bottom and drew stitches with my copic multiliner around the frames.  I added some acrylic snowflakes I picked up at the dollar store a couple of years these!  I added some glamour dust sparkle to her fur trim and lastly I used one of the fun sentiments in a circle punch to finish it off!

Be sure to check out all the other samples for the challenge from our Krafty Girls and Guests!  Then join us for the challenge and your chance to WIN a $10 gift voucher to the shop!  OH and don't forget that our FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS are up for this weekend with a dozen of our favourite stamp sets on SALE 25-50% OFF this weekend!!

Happy kraftin'!

Last Stop on the Krafty Hop!

Well, I'm the last stop on the October Krafty Hop!!  You've seen SO many gorgeous creations along the way today featuring ALL of the NEW Christmas rubber stamp sets from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.....but I have one more for ya!

I FINALLY got a chance to colour after about a two month hiatus.....adopting two new puppies will do that to a girl!  ;)  And I decided to play with the new SPARKLE FAIRY!!!  It was SO fun!

I used the new Frosty Friends paper pad by Doodlebug (which will be back in stock soon)!  I love the colour combinations on these papers.....I also used the coordinating Winter Assortment Sprinkles!!  I had a blast colouring her up with my Copic markers in those rich jewel tones!  I used grey for the 6x6 card base plus some Bermuda Bay cardstock by SU for matting.  I added some cheesecloth behind the main image, some white yarn trim to make the bow plus an acrylic dollar store snowflake on top.....then I finished it off with the sentiment that comes with the set plus a lot of Stardust Stickles!!  I {heart} sparkle....and the Sparkle Fairy!!

Now head on over to the SHOP where ALL of the new stamps are NOW available!!!  Happy shoppin'!

August Krafty Peeks....Day TWO!!! Vampire Queen!

Today the Krafty Girls and I are sharing creations made with the WICKEDLY awesome new stamp sets by Annie....Dragon Queen and Vampire Queen!!!  

Just like yesterday, I used the new Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale paper pads and stuck with green, purple and black for the VAMPIRE QUEEN!  I coloured her up and then used the 'out of the box' technique to cut her out with my oval Spellbinder die.  Using black distress ink, I sponged around the image with the die still on, giving it that white frame.  All the matting cardstocks are by Stampin' Up!  Can you see that black spider's web behind her?  I cut that out with my Silhouette.....haven't used that thing in far too long!  I added some black rhinestones, some black twine, some cheesecloth (love it for Halloween creations)!  I added a bunch of different flowers plus some bat punches and added one of the fabulous sentiments that comes with the set.  But the best part is the little glass jar that I filled with black beads!!  Looks kinda cool, right?!!!

You'll find so many gorgeous 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!! Each set comes with the fabulous queen image stamp, plus THREE coordinating sentiments PLUS an accessory stamp!! They're spook-tacular!

Below you will find all the Krafty Girls & Guests who have goodies to show you today and while you're visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN some $$ to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!! Woohoo!!!
