KKS152-A Few of My Favorite Things...

Welcome back for another awesome challenge here at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!! We are LOVING your submissions!!! It's awesome to see so many of you creating with KKS!!! Keep them coming!

This week our hostess is ELAINE!! And her challenge is All About MUSIC!! So you'll need to create something with a muscial feel! You can use a stamp that reminds you of a song, you can use musical patterned paper or dies, you can use a sentiment that's the title of a song!! Get kreative!! Have some krafty fun and join us this week because we'd LOVE to see your KKS designs. We hope you can play along!!!

I think what SONG I was inspired by is pretty self explanatory, but from the MOMENT I saw what today's challenge was, I wanted to ink up my Madeline stamp set. It's perfect for a music challenge, right down to the saying! I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. She was layered with Kraft cardstock, and then added to my card base. It was made from Fossil, Wild Cherry, Mellow Moss, Sweet Tooth, and some MME The Merry Days of Christmas pad. To embellish my card, I used the MFT Let It Snowflake Die-namics, and the Fancy Flourish Die-namics. Shockingly, the only other embellishment I used were Michael's brads. My sketch is this week's I Spy Sketch Challenge.

Don't forget that our NEW October release stamps are NOW available along with the Gimme Kimmies Kits but only for a limited time!!! Scoop some up now!! AND this week's Frugal Friday Specials are some of our favourite Halloweenie themed stamps, so grab them today!!

C4C160-You A-Maze Me

This is my final challenge as hostess this month for the Crazy 4 Challenges blog, and I couldn't help but leave you with a sketch KNOW how much I love them!! 

For my card, I used the new Pure Innocence Corn Maze Girl, and stamped her on X-Press It blending card. I then colored her with my Copics, and paper pieced her coat with some Lilybee Designs Autumn Spice paper. She was cut out with my Oval Stax Die-namics, and then layered with the Oval Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics in Hot Fudge cardstock. The base of my card, I used Hot Fudge, Cranberry Crisp, More Mustard, and Sweet Tooth cardstock. I used the Woodgrain Fence Die-namics for my fence, and some Mellow Moss cardstock, and the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics for my grass. To finish, I embellished my card with Hemp Cord, a creative express spiral clip(I attached my sentiment to it using the Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut it out), Kraft and Hot Fudge buttons, and some Michael's brads.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies. :)

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to check out what my teammates have created.
