Challenge 89 - NO Embellishments!!

Welcome back for another Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge!!! We've got a really fun one for you this week.....it may be a REAL challenge for some of you!

First though, the random winner of last week's challenge is......SANNE!!! Check out the fabulous card she made with the sketch featuring Janelle!!! Great job and congratulations! Be sure to contact me with your mailing address!

Our fabulous hostess this week is the Dazzling DONNA!!! She has presented us with a really tough challenge this week.....(well at least it was for me....heehee!). She wants you to create a project with NO embellishments!! That means no flowers, no brads, no ribbon, twine, buttons etc. You can use punches and you can sew on your designs, but that's about it. Try to keep it simple!

We'd love for you to join us for this week's challenge and if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp, you could be the random winner of the Brigitte stamp as featured so beautifully on Donna's card.

There are two awesome things going on at the KKStamps Shop this weekend!

- our Frugal Friday specials are up with FIVE of our stamps on sale for 40-50% off but only until Sunday night!
- also our July Gimme Kimmies Kits are still available....all the new stamps are on special when ordered as kits, but again, the sale ends Sunday night!

So hop on over to the shop and scoop all these specials up before they are no more!!

So let's check out the embellishment free samples the Krafty Girls and Guests have for you this week!!!

And today you'll see all SIX of the Traveling Girls in our Krafty Peek challenge cards! Now I'm only going to show you the outsides of our samples.....you'll have to 'travel' over to the Krafty Girls' individual blogs to check out the insides!! There's lots of inspiration for you today, that's for sure!!!

Krafty Peeks.....Day ONE!!

It's that time again........my favourite time of the month!! It's time to start sharing peeks of the new JULY Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!

Now we know that no one really likes to make sympathy cards, but it is one of the events in life that we need to make cards for to show our friends and family how much we care and that we are thinking of them as they deal with such a difficult time. We share our love through our creativity and we think that our new Sympathy Sentiments set will help you do that.

The set features a gorgeous floral image designed by the wonderful Emilie Goulet. It's such an elegant image and so nice to work with. The set also comes with eight lovely phrases in all different fonts.

Check out all the gorgeous designs that the Krafty Girls have to share with you today and while you are popping around, be sure to leave a comment on each post! YOU could be the random winner of this brand new set! I'll announce the winner tomorrow. And you're going to want to come back anyway because we've got new stamps from Emilie Goulet to show you!!!

Now get hip hoppin'..............

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.....PUBLISHED!!

I just love hearing from customers that they've seen Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps in their crafty magazines!!! Yesterday I was contacted by one of the editors of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine in the UK and apparently, we have TWO cards in the August issue!!! And she even sent me the pictures!!!

One of their designers, Jo Nevill created these sweet cards featuring Judy and Fanny from our 50's release! Aren't they sweet!!? They sent me the photos to share with you all, but they are kind of tiny, so I'm not sure how well they will show up here, but you can see them in all their full colour, high quality glory in the magazine itself! I'm going to hunt one up as soon as they arrive in Canada later this month!






ALSO, one of our amazing Krafty Girls, the lovely Michele Boyer, received her advanced copy of the new issue of Paper Creations magazine and guess what???? She has TWO gorgeous KKStamps cards in there too!! These ones feature You Make Me Happy and Dexter the Dragon!! I can't wait to pick up my copy!! I think I'll be making a trip to Chapters in the very new future! I like to have a copy of each magazine with a Kraftin'
Kimmie kard
in it!! It's so very exciting!!



So if you're ever flipping through a crafty magazine and see a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp featured in there, let us know!!! We love to see them and of course, have to pick up a copy as soon as possible!

AND be sure to come back and see us tomorrow because.............THE JULY KRAFTY PEEKS BEGIN!!!! We're featuring a brand new sentiment set, so come and check it out tomorrow!!

Happy kraftin'!
