Welcome Krafty Friends to Day FIVE of our February Krafty Previews!!!
We're back today with our final set of the new release of clear stamps!  We've got an absolutely stunning floral set from artist Becky Pearce!

Wait 'til you see in in action in the hop.....you won't believe all the amazing things you can do with it!



I might have had a little too much fun embellishing this card, but let's be honest.......can you ever have too much fun? I used Leafy Swirl, Circle Stax, Small Scallop Border, and Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics all from MFT, and the Nested Hearts CutUps from The Cats Pajamas. Lots of buttons, ribbon, twine, clips, and brads later and I think there's a card under there somewhere.

Here's a look at the whole set:

My card was made using Look For Rainbows, and was paired with some yummy paper from Kaisercraft called Little One.

We had a weeee bit of a discussion about heels in the rain, but honestly, if I looked this fabulous, you wouldn't get me out of my heels!!

Here is a look at the first set, in full, called LOOK FOR RAINBOWS! and it features the sweet main image PLUS FOUR fabulous coordinating sentiments!  I just love umbrellas, don't you?

Thinking of Popcorn, Disney, and My Friends....

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
This week's challenge is a Thinking of You challenge, and I automatically thought of one of my best friends, Ashley. Ashley just moved to California, and although I moved away from her first, she moved way farther, and to be honest....I'm a bit more than sad about it. She was my rock when I needed one, the place where I ran when I needed to be saved, and the voice of reason in my head when I was being an idiot. She also turned me into a comic book heroine, so I mean, really....she's amazing. 

So, Ashley and I have seen so many movies together, and most of them are Disney....ok, maybe not most, but yeah..maybe they are. What can we say, we LOVE DISNEY!!! When we released the new The Beast set(as well as Belle), I immediately thought of Ashley because that happens to be her favorite of all the princess movies....she's a Belle girl.  Now, Pippa Popcorn is now retired(sorry kids), but the sentiment that I used is from The Beast, which you can still get!!  I paired them with some Echo Park paper(circus themed, but look at that popcorn paper....it's perfect!), and cardstock from both MFT and SU. That cute clothespin I used was sent to me from my friend Anita....so sweet!
We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!!
