July Krafty Peeks Day 5 - Woodland Wonders PLUS Anything Goes Challenge



Welcome back to Day FIVE of our July Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Sadly today is the last peek day but don't fret as the release party is TONIGHT at 7pm EST on Facebook! You should come and join in the fun we have!!!

Our last stamp set is from fabulous new artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen!!!
It's called WOODLAND WONDERS!

These adorable critters and accessories are so much fun to colour and play with!

Think of all the quick and simple cards and tags you could design OR all the fabulous scenes with lots of little animals!

The set comes with seven main images, several accessory stamps and also some fun coordinating sentiments! There's a total of EIGHTEEN stamps!!!

Well I will be totally honest and tell you how much I loved this set.

I went a little crazy making cute little cards with this set!

 I did all three cards on kraft square bases.
The paper is by Doodlebug and called Friendly Forest....really fits with the stamps don't you think???

I wanted to do a smaller square as my focal point with just a stamp and the image and slight embellishment.

In this case I used a tiny bit of twine and accented with Nuvo drops.

These images and sentiments are super fun to use and can be used in so many different combinations.

Don't forget today is also challenge day and our hostess is Krafty Girl, Jammie! And as always during release week, the challenge is ANYTHING GOES! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with any stamp but if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp you'll double your chances to WIN!!

July Krafty Peeks Day 4 - Monkey Business


Can I not tell you how much I chuckled when I heard the name of this stamp....MONKEY BUSINESS....what could be better than that!!!! 


Well, the stamp itself of course!!!!! Two little jokers!
This stamp is from Emilie and features two crazy monkeys and FOUR fabulous sentiments!


I chose the sentiment first on this card and picked the monkey second. Isn't it so true though that the MONKEY BUSINESS always happens on your day! LOL

I used paper (that went so extremely well with the stamps BTW) from Doodlebug called Fun in the Sun. I combined this with shapes (palm and leaves) from Silhouette, twine, jewels and wood dots.

I hope you can join us for all the fun and excitement and prizes tomorrow night beginning at 7pm EST!! You can come hang out with the me and Krafty Team at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!

July Krafty Peeks Day 3 - Reading Lexi



Our sweet little girl Lexi by artist Cheryl Grant is spending a relaxing afternoon with her furry pal doing her favourite thing! It's READING LEXI!
 Does this remind you of yourself? Or someone you know? This wonderfully large image comes with three coordinating sentiments! It's so much fun to colour!

I am pretty much sold on anything to do with books. I can read anything, anywhere at any time :)
I am a total bookworm!!!! Do books make you happy too?
Don't you love visiting other people's imaginations and the worlds they create!
What's your favorite book? Mine, it's Harry Potter.....LOL
I even have the audiobooks and am lucky enough to be able to listen to them at work!

I used paper by Doodlebug...lol....seems like a reoccurring theme this week.
I used flowersoft to create the more realistic looking leaves.
I also used twine and some matte sprinkles.


Check out Lexi and pal in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs today! You'll see the list of Krafty design team members and Krafty Guests below and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!

What a day we had yesterday and today's peek is just as awesome!!!

We are thrilled to present the second set of stamps from our new artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen!

amazing and we are sure you are going to love this new one!!!
Check out FANCY FLORALS!


This gorgeous set of blooms is so versatile and is perfectly designed for so many themes and reasons to send cards to the ones you love! There is a basket of blooms, a trio of single blooms and of course fantastically designed sentiments, which, just happen to fit inside the basket!!!

So on my card I used paper by Basic Grey (Plumeria), twine, prills (center of the flowers), loose glitter, Tim Holtz distress inks (for flowers), MME enamel dots, jewels.
I really loved the colours in this paper set so I went a bit crazy with the flower colours. I just loved how they turned out. I also molded them a bit so they stand out from the card.

The first set we are peeking is from artist Annie Rodrigue! It's called FLOWER GIRLS! This fun set features two amazing flower girl images and also two coordinating sentiments!


Seeing as one of my fav flowers are lilacs I went with the girl standing as her dress reminded me so much of them!!! I have a bush outside my laundry window and when a breeze goes by I get such a beautiful smell!!!!

Below is my card on which I used the no lines technique. I went with purple as my base colour because they remind me so much of the lilacs. I accented the card with jewels, flowers, pearl sprays and some glitter tape.
