Happy Saturday, stampers!!! Aren't Saturdays wonderful?? Hope you get to relax a little bit this weekend and heck...even get some krafting in too!! Make some time to join us for this week's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge!!!

First off, the random winner of last week's bow challenge is............Steph!! Check out the 'berry sweet' card she created featuring Francesca!!! Congratulations Steph and be sure to email me with your mailing address!!

This week our hostess is the Marvelous Michele!!!! And her challenge is called Mostly Monochromatic!!! A lot of M's, wouldn't you say?? She's challenged us to make a card that is mostly one particular colour....so use mostly pink or mostly purple or mostly one colour on your creation!

We'd love everyone to join in the krafty fun but if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your design, you're eligible to be in the random draw to win the Lounging Miles stamp that is featured on Michele's awesome card!

When uploading your cards to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast, be sure to use the keywords KKSC39 and KraftinKimmie and that way we'll be able to find 'em!!

One quick note....this challenge will be up for two whole weeks and you can enter as many new cards as you like during that time!!! We won't be posting a new challenge next Saturday because......Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is heading to CHA in CHICAGO this week!

Check This Out!!

Today is a happy mail day at Kraftin' Kimmie Central! Haha! I received my copies of the Crafty Stamper magazine!!! Do you remember me mentioning that amazing Krafty Girl, Elaine Hughes was featured in a UK magazine featuring Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps??? Well, my copies arrived in my mailbox today!!!

Elaine did an incredible tutorial on Copic airbrushing and how to created wonderful backgrounds using the airbrush tool. She featured some images from our Moonlight Whispers line of summer stamps....and it's a three page spread!!! Wanna see????



Here is the cover of the magazine in case you want to scoop one up for yourself. I asked Elaine to send me some straight from England (because I just couldn't wait) but I know that Chapters carries this magazine, so I'm sure places like Borders do too. It's the August 2010 issue.




The first two pages feature a gorgeous card with Florence and show step by step instructions on how to create the sky and sandy background Elaine used.




The third page shows the other two amazing creations she made with the same background. These cards feature Jack and Eleanor!!

I'm SO very proud of Elaine for this incredible feature in such a wonderful magazine and SO thrilled to see our stamps in there! Honestly, I was jumping around in the kitchen like a crazy woman.....but can ya blame me??? And of course I had my husband run outside and take pictures of the magazine on the patio table, so I could share it with you all!

Hope you all have a wonderfully krafty day!!

Wednesday WOW!!

I love hopping around the blogosphere and seeing Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps everywhere!! It's such a joy to see them being enjoyed and crafted with by stampers around the world!!

Everyone seems to love the Mermaid Collection that was released last month and yesterday I found this gorgeous design by Amy Young before she'd even entered it into our Beautiful Bows challenge!!!



Amy has used the sweet Calliope on her card with a very simple layout, so the focus is on the image. Of course her colouring is incredible and she's added some wonderful ribbon along with a spray of pearls!! How perfect!!

We love to see your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps designs and the Krafty Girls are always on the lookout for your creations....so keep uploading them to your blogs, to Splitcoast, to our Facebook page and of course, keep entering into our weekly challenges!!

Happy kraftin'!!

Gorgeous Gabrielle!!

Happy Monday, stampers! Let's start another beautiful summer week with some eye candy! How's that??

This weekend as I was blurfing around (that's blog surfing...hehe), I saw some incredible creations by Kraftin' Kimmie customers! It's so exciting to see our images being enjoyed by so many and it's always fun to see how you create with them!



I found this stunning design by the lovely and ever so talented, Suzanne Dean!! She used the lovely Gabrielle, having a cup of tea. I just adore the soft blue/lilac colours and the layout is perfect. And of course, the depth of colour she achieves with her Copic markers is simply incredible! Thanks so much Suzanne, for letting me share your gorgeous artwork!



As I'm hopping around the blogosphere in the coming weeks, I'm going to be keeping my eyes peeled for more Kraftin' Kimmie kreations! Maybe YOU could be featured here NEXT!!!

Now don't forget that you can join in the stamping fun with this week's KKStamps Challenge, which is the post below this one.....AND later on this week (Thursday to be exact) we'll be starting some wonderful Krafty Peeks for the July release images! What do you think we have up our inky sleeves this time?? You'll just have to wait and SEEEEEEE!!
