I'm the hostess this week for the Saturday challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I've chose the theme of Embossing.  I love the polished look that embossing gives to cards.  So in keeping with the theme I used five different folders to create the panels and this used up lots of my scrap papers.  The stamps I used for my card is called "Snow Days".  I used Copics to color the image.  The doily is a die by Cheery Lynn called French Pastry.  For the snowflakes I used an MS snowflake punch and 3D dimensional stickers. Here's a list of the embossing folders used on my card.  Snowflake, Baby's Breathe, Ribbon, Swiss Dots and Christmas Holly. 
I hope you can join us for this challenge.  I look forward to seeing all your cards and projects.  Enjoy your week-end!

We are back with Day SIX of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps NOVEMBER KRAFTY PREVIEWS!!! It's our last day of peeks before the release TONIGHT!!
Today we are sharing a gorgeous set of stamps by artist Annie Rodrigue!! This fancy couple is all set for a night on the town! The set is called LET'S CELEBRATE! It includes TWO main images plus SEVEN perfectly coordinating sentiments!


Be sure to join us for all the fun and excitement and prizes TONIGHT beginning at 6pm EST at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY
 

This was a fun card to create!  I've been saving this designer paper for ages and I think it was just waiting for these stamps...lol.  I believe it was called Winter Song - Crystal Arabesque.  I fussy cut the two images out and popped the man out so that he would appear closer.  The clock is a die by La-La-Land called Steampunk Clock.  I used a Spellbinder die for the label.  I chose to use a silver ribbon because I think it gives the card a richer appearance.

KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS SNEAK PEEKS - DAY FIVE!

 
Hi, I'm back with Day FIVE of our November Krafty Peeks for the NEW Release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
The set we are sharing today is a special edition stamp set!!  It's called OH, CROP! The set features SIX fun sentiments plus EIGHT fun icon stamps!
 

I hope you can come hang out with us at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY! The fun begins at 6pm EST on Saturday night and we'll be celebrating the new stamp sets with fun and prizes! Then all the new release stamp sets will be released!!!
  

Instead of a card today I decided to make a simple door hanger for my craft room!  I used distress ink markers and stamped the images to create a background paper.  The opening is framed with a fancy round die by Spellbinders.  Then I added a cute pink bow.  I chose one of my favourite color combo's of pink and purple.
