Then when the day comes you get your goodies together and through Periscope we ALL make something together!!!! Join the NEW FB Group to get all of the deets!!! We can't wait!!!!

I've used "Frosty Friends!" and "Happy Winter Days!" (sentiment) by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

Roller Skating Avery

Hi everyone!

I've used a stamp for this card from last release: Roller Skating Avery by The Paper Nest Dolls
She is available in digi and in rubber stamp.
She is so adorable, I love her skirt!

I knew from the first moment I wanted to use this paper for her. I love the colourcombination.
I wish I had such a ponytail!
I cut her out with a small white border so she pops more.

Here are the Copic Marker colourcombo's:
hair: E37, E35, YR23, Y21
skin:  E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
black: 100, W7, W5, W3
pink: R89; R85, R83, R81
yellow: E37, E35, YR23, Y15

Ivy Curls

Hi everyone!

This time I used a stamp by Jeremiah Ketner "Ivy Curls", she is available as a digital stamp at Crafts And Me.

I know it's not a real Christmas image, but I think it can be used for that. I love the bow and the stars. It's so shiny! Because I wanted some more shiny things on the card, I added some Frantage around the image with some golden glitter and white white powder. 

I forgot to heaten it on the back to melt, so I blew with the heater all the embossing over my image, the ground and myself of course... So clumsy!

Here are the Copic Marker colours I've used:
skin: E04, E11, E00, E000, R02
hair: E50, E59, E57, E53
green: G28, YG17, YG13, YG11
red: R59, R37, R35
white: C3, C1, C0
yellow: YR23, Y15, Y11
pink ears: RV11

Thanks for checking out my post!

Snow Buddies

Hallo allemaal,

Wat wordt het nu toch snel winter!
Hoog tijd om mijn voorraad kerst en winter kaarten te maken.
Eerlijk gezegd zag ik er wat tegenop om aan de kerstkaarten te beginnen, maar ik heb de smaak ten volle te pakken. Ik wissel gewoon wat af met kleuren, dus niet te veel traditionele rood en groen kleuren. Volgens mij is dit het eerste jaar dat ik er echt plezier in heb.

Voor deze kaart heb ik weer mijn favoriete papier van Doodlebug gebruikt. Ik hou wel van felle kleurtjes, dus deze is helemaal mijn ding.
Dat paars, groen en blauw vind ik een prachtige kleurencombinatie. De stempel is van Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps "Snow Buddies".

Om een sneeuwpop in te kleuren werk ik het liefst met stipjes plaatsen. Donkere stippen waar er schaduw valt en waar het licht valt hele lichte stippen tot niets. De stippen in de sjaal van de sneeuwpop heb ik nog ingevuld met de witte Molotow marker. Ideaal om dingen wit te maken als je er per ongeluk in gekleurd hebt.

Hier zijn de kleurtjes die ik ervoor heb gebruikt:
huid: E04, E11, E21, E11, E00, E000
haar: E50, E59, E57, E55, E53
blauw: N7, B29, B26, B24, B23, B21
paars: BV29, V09, V17, V15, V12
groen: BG78, BG18, BG15, BG13, BG11
sneeuwpop: C5, C3, C1, C0, 0 (blender)
wortel: E09, YG07, YG04, Y35
roze bloem: RV17, RV55, RV52
schoen: N7, N5, N3, N1
vogeltje: W5, W3, W1

Bedankt om langs te komen en een fijne dag nog!

Boo to you!

Hi everyone!

This time I'm the hostess for the new saturday challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Do you know we are only 2 weeks away from Halloween?
It's crazy!

So I thought we still have to do one Halloween challenge. I love to make them! Perfect time for using crazy colours on the hair, skin, backgrounds,...

And I used the Oktober sketch this time again!

For this card I've used a stampset from last year "Trick or Eat!". I love this zombie who is cute and scary at the same time. And the text with cat is from the "Spook-tacular Sentiments" set by Becky.
I also used some Kraftin' Kimmie Sparkles "Passionated Purple". I really like a touch of sparkle on every card!

I used a lot of paper with some glitter in it, the black and the purple... And I heatembossed the sentiment with cat with glittery black embossing powder. It's so beautiful in real life.
And I used a new skin colour on the zombie and I love how it came out.

Here are the colours I've used:
skin: BG96, BG93, YG91, W1
black: N9, W7, W5, W3, W1
eyes: E29, R59, R35,  W3, W1, blender
orange: E09, R07, R04, Y38
purple: N7, V09, V17, V15, V122
ground: E43, E41, E40

It's a HUGE sale!! Since Kimmie won't let us go on vacation with her (rude, I know! lol) she's put LOTS of Krafty Goodness on sale!!! Head over to the Krafty store now to take advantage of this sale! Don't forget all orders placed between now and the 25th, will ship out on the 26th!! Happy Family Vacation Kimmie

Thanks for reading and I really appreciate your lovely comments!

Wonderful wednesday: Candy!

Hi everyone!

It's wednesday already, so time for another Wonderful Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

 2 weeks ago I was going to a friend to get krafty and she has 2 sweet daughters. And I thought, I can buy them some candy. And then I had the idea to make 2 little bags candy by myself. So I filled the transparant  with Fruit-tella's.

I heat embossed this little cutie "Charlotte" from the set "Itty Bitty Friends" with a bright pink embossing powder. She is only about 2 inches tall and she is super cute!
The regular larger Charlotte is retired, so the "Itty Bitty Friends" stampset is the only way to have this stamp if you haven't here already.

I really love this set and use them all the time for the backs of my cards.

Here's a close-up of the image on the candybag.

They were happy with it, I hope you like it.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Release Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!

We're so excited because it's FINALLY our OCTOBER RELEASE DAY at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!! We're releasing all the new CLEAR stamp sets we've been previewing all week and we’re celebrating with a KRAFTY HOP!! 

Over the last few days we have shared lots of wonderful creations in our Krafty Peeks featuring all the new stamp sets from each of our artists for the CLEAR October Release! We know these stamps will inspire you to make your own wintry creations! First off we shared gorgeous sets of holiday sentiments from artist, Becky Pearce called CHRISTMAS CHEER as well as a sweet little FOXy holiday set called HAPPY WINTER DAYS

 The both sets or on this card. I made a stepcard (is that the correct word for this one?) for the first time. I had a giant tree die from Marianne Design and I wanted to hang the ornaments in the tree. But I came out with this shaped card. It's better in real life. It's a disaster to make a picture of it because it's so big...

 Then we showed a sweet set of snowmen and friends by artist, Cheryl Grant called SNOW BUDDIES! 
 Next came those fun characters shreddin' the white stuff from artist, Annie Rodrigue called SNOW DAYS!
 And lastly we showed you an adorable new set of critters from artist Emilie Goulet called ICE, ICE, BABY! 
Plus as a special bonus, we are now releasing the fabulous stamp set that was previously only available as part of the Holiday Kard Kit! It's called NO PEEKING!

You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our September Krafty Hop! When you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’Kimmie shop, because ALL the new CLEAR stamp sets are NOW available!! 

Now let's celebrate with our NEW RELEASE and get hoppin' and shoppin'

Softball Ellie

Hi everyone!

Today  I'm here with some inspiration with Softball Ellie by the Paper Nest Dolls.

I coloured the little cutie with my Copic markers.

hair: Y21, E37, E35, YR23
wood: E59, E37, E35, E31
