Lets get hopping with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!

Llama-Drama-WM

Hello Everyone,

I hope you have enjoyed the releases of the March Kraftin Kimmie stamps release. It has been an honour being a Krafty Guest this month!

All THREE new clear stamp sets are NOW available over at the Krafty Shop, along with our new Sparkling Sapphire inks, TWO new stencils and our new Springy Krafty Dots!

So let’s have a fun hop around the Krafty Team and Krafty Guests’ blogs and check everything out in action! Grab a nice hot (or cold) beverage, sit back and relax while you enjoy this kreative tour!

I decided that I needed to use Drama Llama one more time during this release! I coloured up the Llama with the saddle. I decided to add some green’s and blue’s to make a gender neutral card, as I get this request all the time from my family.

I loved this pattern paper from My Mind’s Eye as it just felt like the perfect paper pack to use with a Llama card.

I then heat embossed the No Problamma!  (my favourite sentiment of this release) and added a sprinkling of Kraftin kimmie Spring dots.

This turned out to be my favourite card of the release, I hope you like it as well!
If you liked anything from the Kraftin Kimmie release, good news! you can get it in the shop right now! Including the Gimme Kimmie Kits which contains everything Kraftin Kimmie released this month at a limited time discount in case you want it all!

Now head out on the blog hop to check out these lovely goodies in action and then head on over to the krafty shop to scoop them up!

Happy hoppin’ and happy shoppin’!

I really wanted to make a night sky using our Sparkling Sapphire ink, I then added sparkly embossing paste through the new Starburst stencil to add some shine, I then thought it would be super adorable that the fairy godmother stamp is floating along the dreamy clouds, I used purple pansy ink behind the fairy godmother to make her look like she is glowing, and then added a sprinkling of our Kraftin Kimmie new spring enamel dots.

Lots of hugs,

~Patti

Fawn’d of you, Kraftin Kimmie Release Day 2

Fawn'd-of-you-WM

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to Day TWO of our March Krafty Peeks at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Fawn'd of you banner

Today we are sharing a wonderful spring stamp set from artist Cheryl Grant!
It’s called FAWN’D OF YOU!

This sweet set features a lovely lady who’s getting ready for the nice weather to begin and the flowers to start growing!
She has two furry friends…a bunny and a fawn….plus four coordinating sentiments!

My project today features the Girl and her friend fawn. I matched her up to some pattern paper that I thought worked well with the vine stencil and Sapphire ink. I then heat embossed the sentiment onto some pattern paper clouds for a sweet spring look.

We have some more exciting announcements to check out below!

Don’t forget about the MARCH Ink of the Month!
The colour this month is LOVELY LAGOON and you can scoop up the large ink pad, the mini cube and the ink refill
for 15% OFF until March 31st!

I think it would be a great pair to make some ink blended backgrounds with our March ink release Sparkling Sapphire

Sparkling Sapphire

You’ll get to see ALL the new goodies….stamps, stencils, ink and dots over the next couple of days! Then everything will be released at our LIVE Facebook Release Party on Saturday afternoon at 1pm EST in the Krafty Friends group!

Llama Drama Kraftin Kimmie Release Day 1

Llama-Drama-polaroid-WM

Hello Everyone!

All the Krafty FUN is about to begin as we kick off the March 2019 release for
Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

This is Day ONE of our Krafty Peeks and we are over the moon excited to share everything with you! We’ve got new stamps, stencils, INK and enamel dots!

llama drama wm sheet

The first stamp set we are previewing for you is
called LLAMA DRAMA and is by our fabulous
artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen!

I love that you can use the full llama’s, portrait llama’s, or mix and match the heads to the bodies! Of course we have lot of fun accessory stamps to add unique personalities to each llama!

I decided it would be fun to use all the llama heads in a polaroid (a llama family!) and the hilarious Save the drama for your llama sentiment.

As you hop around the Krafty Team’s blogs today you will see the Llama Drama stamp set in action in combination with our awesome new March Kraftin’ Kimmie products!

Sparkling Sapphire

You will spot our newest addition to the Krafty Kolours Hybrid Ink line! It’s a stunning new dark royal blue called
SPARKLY SAPPHIRE!
As always it will be available in full sized ink pads, mini cubes and ink refills!

I am excited to use this colour with other blues, greens, and teals to make some ocean backgrounds!

stencils

We’ve got TWO brand new Krafty Stencils for this month’s release to coordinate with our stamp sets!
They are called LEAVES & VINES and STARBURST!

Starbust was so much fun to play with! I loved squishing Versamark ink through the stencil to make a silver heat emboss starry background!

Springy Enamel Dots

And of course, we are adding some lovely new Krafty Dots!
These ones are called SPRINGY DOTS!

I was inspired by the springy dots for most of my projects for the release as I thought it would be fun to limit my colour palette!

You’ll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of March Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends facebook group on Saturday, March 16th at 1pm EST!

For now, hop around and check out some incredible designs from our Krafty Team!!

Llamaste!

Trick or Treat Some Odd Girl Blog Hop

Wizard Panda by Patti

 

Ding Dong!
Welcome to our annual Trick or Treat with the Odd Girls!
Our hop is full of spooktacular Halloween Tricks and Treats. Don’t worry, our tricks won’t be too scary! AND, just like trick or treating for candy, you don’t want to skip any houses…or blogs in this case! Every stop along the way will have (crafty) goodies for you but you won’t get the treats you must be a good trick or treater and stop at every house and leave your comment. You can Trick or Treat with us thru midnight EDT on November 3rd, winners will be announced here on Nov 5th!

Lately, I have been challenging myself to get out of my “colouring comfort zone.” I was finding that I wasn’t enjoying colouring as much, because I was doing the same thing over and over so for this project I wanted to see if I could change the little Wizard Bandit from a Racoon into a Red Panda (which is my favorite animal!) and I am pretty happy with the results. Just goes to show a little challenge can spark some creative fun!

I added my magical red panda to the front of a canvas where I wanted to use mainly orange and black with just a pop of green, I must admit I never make Halloween cards as I have no one to give them to… so I made a canvas instead! and will use it as  Halloween decor!

Here is our hop order for you after you leave the comfort of my porch…
Patti <—–You are here!
Wondering what our treats are?
Well, of course we’ll be doing a coupon code for 31% off at the shop throughout the hop, TRICKORTREAT.
Then from those of you who comment on every stop we’ll be giving away 3, $15 GCs to the shop. Awesome, right? Make sure to stop in our community, I may have another surprise up my sleeve as well.
And there you have it! Happy Haunting – I mean HOPPING!

 

Lots of hugs,

Patti

Valentine Hop with Some Odd Girl

Stamp: Mae and Kaylee Selfie by Some Odd Girl Stamps

 

Hello, Gals and Pals!

Welcome to the Some Odd Girl Valentine’s Day Hop. I am the first stop on the Blog Hop! You can scroll to the bottom of this post to see the full list (just click on the next name to go to the next blog!)

I usually do not celebrate this holiday as I have no significant other in my life…. so instead I am celebrating Galentine’s Day!

galentines-day

I decided to make a card using Mae and Kaylee Selfie for my Best friend, who truly is one of the loves of my life. I have been friends with her for over a decade and our friendship will never stop. So just like Leslie Knope (who by the way is an avid scrapbooker/ craft maker), I challenge you to have your own Galentine’s with your Bestie or group of friends to celebrate. Maybe make her a Valentine’s as well.

Inside the card I am going to put Will you be my Galentine? and then make a cute checkbox with Yes (then let’s get waffles) or No (Then no waffles for you!)

Be sure to check in and comment on each blog, including this one, to be the most eligible. Since we’re spreading the love so hardcore, everyone gets 14% off at the Some Odd Girl shop using code SOGLove! )But, we’ll also be choosing 2 lucky winners from those of you who comment on every blog, each receiving a $14 spending spree in our shop.
Here’s our hop list…

Lots of Hugs!
