Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Celebration!

Hi everyone!  I'm sorry I've been quiet this week.  My little one got very sick two weeks ago with RSV and a double ear infection and it took forever for him to beat that bug (he still isn't 100%!).  I then came down with a head cold/sinus infection so it's been a rough couple of weeks.  Anyway, it's Saturday and that means it's the weekend so life is good :)  This is a super fun weekend because we are having a huge celebration over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  We are celebrating over 2000 peeps in our new Kraftin Friends Facebook Group AND it's Ms. Kraftin' Kimmie's birthday! :)  So what better time to celebrate?

Today we're kicking things off with an all day Krafty Krop!! Every two hours the Krafty Girls will be posting a challenge for you to try! Each challenge includes a sketch plus an extra element! If you use the sketch AND the extra element and submit your creation, that's TWO chances to WIN! There will be Krafty Ka$h vouchers up for grabs AND you have all week to play along! It's going to be so much FUN! I hope you can get krafty with us! Here's the sketch I created:


And here's my card:


For my card, I just had to ink up Artemis.  Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and I thought she's make the perfect image for a Valentine's Day card.  I of course colored her with copics.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E01, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E53, E25, E29
Pinks: RV10, R81, R83, R85, R89
Sky: BG000, C0, C1, C4, B60
Grass: G21, G94, G99
Blacks: C3, C5, C7, C9

My DP is from The Paper Studio (I believe this is Hobby Lobby's house brand).  The swirls on either side of the image were cut using the Tilda Swirl die from Memory Box dies.  I love this die and I use it often.  I added some pearls and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment comes in the set.  What do you think?

Also to celebrate, Kim is having a special SALE in the shop this weekend! In honor of her turning 44 years young, Ki has chosen 44 of our fabulous rubber stamp sets and put them on SALE at 44% OFF!!! So scoop them up because it's only for the weekend!!! And please, no extra coupons are to be used during this sale. Thanks! Kim will also be giving away a FREE stamp too!  With every $50+ order this weekend, she will be including a special stamp set!! Since Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, you'll receive either LOVE BIRDS! or CANDY HEARTS! with your order but only for this weekend!

There will be more excitement posted throughout the day! I hope you can join us for all the krafty fun!!!

I'm Just a Love Machine!


Hi everyone and Happy Saturday!  It's freezing and snowing here and my poor little one has been so sick, so this will be a stay in and regroup kind of weekend :)  Well, it is Saturday, so that means it's another Saturday Challenge over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this week is "All About the Boys."  Here's my card:




I know, leave it to me to turn a boy image into a super girly card :)  I just couldn't help myself :)  This adorable image is from the Together is Better stamp set.  I of course colored him with copics.  My DP is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby's brand).  I added some die cuts (from Memory Box), a bow, some bling, and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The perfect sentiment comes with the set.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend!

Come Fly With Me - Some Super Exciting News!!!

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday!  I hope you all had a lovely holiday and a wonderful New Year celebration.  We had a wonderful, low key holiday and New Year celebration, which was perfect and just how I wanted it.  2014 was a pretty rough year for me personally, but 2015 is looking up.  I have some amazing, crafty dream come true news to share.  I have become a permanent member of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps DT!!!!!  That's right, I'm a Krafty Girl!!!!!!  This is truly a dream come true for me.  The very first stamp I purchased to color with copics was a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp.  My personal goal in my stamping "career," my ultimate dream, was to become a Krafty Girl some day and Kim made that dream come true for me.  After a really, really rough 2014, this was even more special for me.  So, thank you Kim, and the rest of the amazing Krafty Girls.  I'm so excited for 2015.


Well, it's Saturday so that means it's an other Saturday Challenge over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog.  Krafty Girl Stephanie is our hostess this week and the challenge is vacation themed.  There are so many images in the KKS library that could fit really any theme.  Here's my card:


For my card, I inked up this gorgeous image from the Glamour Girls Stamp Set.  This set is so versatile. You could use these images for Valentine's cards, vacation cards, really anything!  Love how versatile KKS are!  I of course colored her with copics.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E53, E25, E29
Pinks: RV10, R81, R83, R85, R89
Blacks: C3, C5, C7, C9
Blue: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99

My DP is from Echo Park (a summer set from I think 2 summers ago that I've been hoarding :) ).  I added a bow, some pearls, some die cuts (the border die is from La La Land Crafts and the die cut extending from the image is from Memory Box dies).  I also added some pearls and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment comes with the stamp set.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  I can't wait to share my journey with you as a full time Krafty Girl!  Huge hugs and Happy New Year!
