Feeling Festive with Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

I can cross another Christmas card off the list today with my Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps challenge card this week!  I am this week’s hostess, and I’m asking for festive creations!  Play along and you could win the stamp featured on my card today!

See the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog post for full details on entering and to check out the Krafty Girls’ gorgeous creations!

On my card I used the gorgeous CELESTINA (also available in the UK at Quixotic Paperie).

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  The designer paper is the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium pad.

It’s a very grey and miserable day here in Dorset, with lots of rain, so we’re catching up on some chores and then I’ll be spending the afternoon crafting!  Hope you’re having a lovely weekend, whatever you’re up to!

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Challenge – Christmas Tag!

Today sees the start of another fantastic challenge over on the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps challenge blog.  This week the challenge is to create a tag, or a card with a tag on it, and our lovely hostess is SANDIE, so you could win the yummy KKS stamp Sandie has featured on her make today!  Make sure you pop on over to the challenge blog to check out the other Krafty Girl creations, and of course to join in!

This tag actually marks the first of a set that I’ll be sharing over the Christmas holiday.  I always love checking out Tim Holtz’ 12 Tags of Christmas, and seeing all the fantastic techniques on display.  I just never have the time (or by Christmas, the energy) to join in.  This year I wanted to create some fun keepsake decorations, so I decided to create 12 CUTE Tags of Christmas.  I’ll be sharing them over the next couple of weeks, here’s the first one!

On my tag I have used the gorgeous FELICITY, one of Annie Rodrigue’s stamps from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps (available direct from KKS HERE).

The image was coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin markers on Make it Colour Blending Card.  The designer papers and coordinating stickers are from the Echo Park Season’s Greetings 12 x 12 kit.  The chipboard snowflakes are Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard.

That’s it for now!  I hope you’re almost finished with Christmas preparations and ready to enjoy the holiday.  I’m getting there!  Have a fantastic weekend, and I’ll be back on Monday with something else to share.

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Sept Release Preview Day 3 & Challenge!

Glad to hear so many positive comments about yesterday’s Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews.  Emilie’s festive stamps are just TOO much fun, and you’ll get another chance to check out how much I love them on the hop tomorrow!  Just one sleep to go!

Today, the Krafty Girls are showing off the new images from the Moonlight Whispers range by Annie Rodrigue.  I think it’s pretty well known that I adore Annie’s illustrations, and she has created some truly gorgeous angels for this release, all in her unique and slightly quirky style.  Loving these just as much as the new Emilie images!  Kimmie is thoroughly spoiling us!  Check out the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps blog for all the details and to see who else has a peek to share!

PLUS today is of course, the start of a new challenge!  This week’s challenge is CHRISTMAS IN SEPTEMBER – perfect.  Our hostess this week is the Charming Carole!  So pull out your Christmas and holiday stamps and start deckin’ those halls!!  If you use a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp, you could be the random winner of the stamp Carole used in her peek today….the new Aurelia Angel!!!

The new release will be available direct from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps in Canada AND
from Quixotic Paperie in UK/Europe on Sunday 18th September 2011.

On my card today I have used the stunning Persephone.  Love her super cute hairstyle, and that gorgeous dress.

Papers are from the Echo Park Season’s Greetings 12×12 collection kit (also available as a 6×6 paper pad).  As in yesterday’s post, I have used one of the stickers from the kit instead of a stamped sentiment – I simply stuck it to a piece of scrap card and cut round it, then mounted on foam pads.  The gorgeous snowflakes are from the Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard – Snowflake Stars pack – I simply covered them with a gold glitter pen and glued them down.

The images was coloured with Copic Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card.

NOTE: As you pop around to visit the Krafty Girls sharing sneak peeks today, please make sure to leave comments on all their blogs. Kimmie will be drawing TWO lucky winners to receive three of Annie’s new angels!  The winners’ names will be posted tomorrow morning on the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Blog. Good luck!

Catch you all tomorrow for the big hop!
