Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps October Previews – Snow Fun!

It’s preview time again for the latest Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps release.  Today the Krafty Girls are previewing the new cuties from Cheryl Alger, and they are SNOW much fun!

Make sure you stop by all the Krafty Girl blogs showing off peeks today, as by commenting on each of them you could be in with a chance of winning some new stamps!  See the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps blog for full info.  The list of blogs is at the bottom of this post.

Meet Lucas and his Snowman pal!  They come as part of an adorable set.  I love colouring snowmen, they are just SO easy and quick to colour up.  Perfect when you’ve got lots of cards to make.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers. I used MFT Die-Namics diesPhoto Corners and Button Quartet.

Flying By with another Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Cutie!

Just a quick post today featuring one of the adorable Halloween Lulu stamps from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.

I used the little witchy Lulu from the HALLOWEEN LULU set (also available in Canada from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps).

The important thing to remember: witches aren’t just for Halloween!  There’s nothing Halloween specific about this image, so she would also be perfect for “Have a Bewitching Birthday” cards etc.  I LOVE Halloween, but it’s always nice to think of ways you can use the images year round.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.

The designer papers are from an older My Mind’s Eye Halloween collection kit.  I used MFT Die-Namics Photo Corners and Solid Bracket Border to accent.

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps April Previews Day 1 – Playtime Lulu!

It’s that time again! The Krafty Girls are showing off previews of the latest Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps release, and as always we have got some fantastic new images to share with you!

Today we are sharing peeks at the new set from Cheryl Alger – PLAYTIME LULU!  So cute, and we know you have been loving the adorable Lulu sets so far!

You can find out all of the Krafty Girls who have previews today by checking the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps blog.  Be sure to leave a comment at every stop as one lucky commenting stamper will win the new Playtime Lulu stamp set!

** The new stamps will be available to order on Sunday 22nd April from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps in Canada or in the UK/Europe from Quixotic Paperie! **

On my card today I have used one of the adorable images from the set.  So cute!  These images lend themselves easily to clean and simple cards or more detailed creations.  They can be quick to colour up, or you can take more time and add a little extra detail.

Adorable!  The image was coloured using ShinHan Touch Twin markers on Make it Colour Blending Card.  The designer paper is from one of my scrap boxes and I believe it was from Stampin’ Up.  The flower was die cut using a Magnolia Doohickey die, and the leaves behind it are Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard – Round Leaves.

That’s it from me!  Join us again tomorrow for more peeks at the latest release!

Images were coloured using ShinHan Touch Twin markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (I will edit in colour maps later on for those who are interested).  Papers are from my scraps box and are an old Basic Grey range I think.

That’s it from me (remember to check back later for colour info).  Join us again tomorrow for more peeks at the new release!
