Krafty Scrappy Challenge - Treat Yours-Elf Magnets

Hi there!  It's time for another Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps SKRAPPY challenge! This challenge is for "Anything" but a Kard!
You can create Anything as long as it's NOT a card! Calendars, bookmarks, pocket pages, traditional scrap pages, holiday gifts, planner pages, tags...you get the picture! Come play along with us each month and let's get some of those photo's out of boxes and on to something creative and fun! You will have a whole month to play along and you can play as many times as you like! Here are a few things to remember...
THIS MONTH'S THEME: ANYTHING GOES!
1. Create ANY scrap page, Project Life Layout or pocket page cards, altered item, etc. JUST NOT A CARD!
2. MUST be a NEW creation.
3. MUST use Kraftin Kimmie Stamps to be entered in to the drawing.
4. You have a month to play, enter AS MANY TIMES as you'd like!
5. Once we've reached 5 entries, we draw a random winner (winner will be drawn at the close of the challenge)!
6. You have until Monday, March 20th at 12:00 pm Eastern to get your entries in.
7. Be sure to also share your creations on our Krafty Friends Facebook page for everyone to see!! 
 

Every now and then I do a clean up in my kraft room and I came across some old printer magnet papers.  So I decided to use these adorable elves and make some magnets.  The stamp set I used is called "Treat Yours-Elf".  So what I did was color the images with Copics and then added three layers of Modge Podge glue to seal it and make it water proof.  I wanted to be able to dust them off with a damp cloth.  Then I used spray adhesive to stick the images to the magnetic sheet.  Once it was dry I just cut them out.  Worked perfectly and sticks to anything metal with no slipping or sliding!!  I've now got a whole punch of ideas to use these paper magnetic sheets for!  Thanks for stopping by!

It's A Krafty Komeback With Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

It's time for a Krafty Komeback with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
As you know, lots of the rubber stamp sets from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore. Well, Kraftin' Kimmie has decided to switch things up and rerelease a few of your faves in clear stamps, and today we're announcing a new one!
This hilarious stamp set features one of our most popular images from artist Annie Rodrigue! It's a great stamp set to send to our coffee-lovin' friends!
It's ANGIE!!!


You might remember this sassy lady! I think the new sentiments are too funny and match Angie's attitude perfectly!!
The Krafty Krew design team members and guests listed below have created some fabulous creations to inspire you so be sure to hop around and check it out in action! Then hop on over to the Krafty Shop because ANGIE is NOW AVAILABLE!!!

It's also Frugal Friday and there are FOUR fabulous stamp sets on SALE for 40% OFF! But only for the weekend and only while supplies last! So be sure to check them out!
Happy hoppin' and shoppin'!!
  

Even though I'm not a coffee drinker (yuk), I really love this stamp.  It could be a cup of tea in her hands right!  I've colored her up with Copics and then used the YNS stitched rectangle dies to frame her.  The designer paper is from the Lawn Fawn - Perfectly Plaid Fall paper pad.  The cup was made using a die from MFT.  Then some ribbon and a pop of flower finishes her off!
I hope you've enjoyed the hop.  There are so many gorgeous projects to see using the stamp "Angie".

Last month I did the gorgeous Beauty stamp from KKS and I did her in blues.  So, I thought I'd do the Beast for this challenge since the theme is blues!  I coloured the image with Copics and used the YNS stitched square die to frame it.  The designer paper is from the Simple Stories - So Rad paper pad.  The Heart border is also a die from YNS.  The embossed panel is the Houndstooth folder from Cuttlebug.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

Another fun and adorable image for any boys card.  I think if you changed up the colors and made it more girly it would be perfect for any child's card.

KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS SNEAK PEEKS - DAY ONE!

 
 
Chooooo choooooo! ALL ABOARD!! It's time for our February Release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
This month all FOUR of our awesome new stamp sets are ALL ABOUT BOYS!!
Today we are kickin' off Day ONE with a sweet new set from artist Cheryl Grant and if you haven't guessed, it's called..... ALL ABOARD!


This sweet new stamp features a large main image of Lucas and his puppy friend getting ready to ride the rails! What a fabulous set for boys birthdays and so much more! It also features FOUR awesome sentiments in a fun and funky font!
Be sure to join us each day as we count down to the February Release and have fun with us at the LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday afternoon at 2pm EST! We'll be checking out ALL of the FOUR new boy stamp sets, sharing fabulous creations, giving away prizes and having tons of krafty fun!
  

I'm so happy that this release is all about the boys!!  I always struggle to come up with an appropriate image or card design for boys/men!  These are perfect!
I started off coloring the image then cutting it out.  I added a number 9 to the engine.  This is going to be a birthday card for a little guy I know.  Then I created the background.  First I sponged on the clouds with distress ink.  I used Tumbled Glass.  Then I added some browns for the ground.  I used the Lawn Fawn fence die to create the tracks.  I just cut off the spikes or points of the fence. I used the YNS fishtail die with a Happy Birthday sentiment to finish it off. 
I hope you have been enjoying the hop for the beginning of our release this week.  Have a great day and thank for stopping and the lovely comments you always leave!

I've always loved the movie Beauty and the Beast and I was so excited when KKS brought out the Beauty stamp a year ago!  She also released the stamp Beast to go with it!  A perfect combination!
I decided to go with blues and a touch of vintage rose when I colored the stamp.  I also decided to do her hair black with a bit of blue/plum shading.  This is my favourite hair color because it just pops out at you and I secretly wish I had dark hair!!  The designer paper is from the Bo-Bunny - Secret Garden paper pad.  I used a Cheery Lynn Designs doily die and instead of going with white chose to keep everything blue.  This die is called French Pastry Doily Die.  I added a bit of ribbon and a bow.  The flowers are from Wild Orchids and the branches are a punch by MS.  I am so happy with how this turned out!!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment!  I hope you can join us this week for our Square challenge!  Enjoy your weekend!

For today's hop I've used the other stamp from the Buddy Bears stamp set.  He's just chillin'.   I paper pieced the pillow and coloured the teddy bear with Copics.  The paper is from the Doodlebug - Kitten Smitten paper pad.  The fish tail die is from YNS.  Have a great day and enjoy the hop!!
