A New Challenge at Kenny K: A color challenge!

Welcome back!  This week Team A is at bat and we are tasking you with a color challenge.  Use the colors above to create a project and share it on the Kenny K Krafty Krew blog for a chance to win a couple of great prizes.  While you're out and about in blogland, be sure to swing by the Kenny K Downloads shop to pick up a few of his great images.  Today I'm using Texting Diva.  She's plugged in and supah cute!  Kind of reminds me of myself...the plugged in part, anyway...LOL!  I NEVER go anywhere without my phone and have told Kirk that if our house was on fire and I could only save him or my phone, um, well...let's just say, it would be a really hard decision.  Anyone see Sophie's Choice? Yeah, it's like that.  

I best scoot!  Catch ya later.  Until then, stay crafty

On my card today I've used the sun worshipping Sunnie.  She's an absolute delight!  She has a frothy, high-octane beverage in that coconut shell and she's ready to hit the beach.

In the shop, we also have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’!! The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time!!

So head on over and check out which ones are up this week!

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

Day Four of May Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Hey, all!  Welcome back to Day FOUR of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps May previews!  Yesterday we shared 3 of the lovely BEACHY GIRLS and today we're showing you the rest...Mararita, River, and Sunnie!  They are equally as beautiful and you are going to love them!  

I am featuring Margarita on my card today.  Isn't she fun!  I have to tell you, I am not much of a water person, but I am loving these stamps!  I would rather have my eyes devoured by fire ants than be caught dead in a swimsuit and trust me, if you ever saw me in a swimsuit, YOU would probably go hunting for some fire ants to chomp on yours, as well...LOL!  

Anyway, I digress.  Back to our hop!  There are lots of amazing creations on today's hop in combination with this week's challenge!! The lovely KAREN is our hostess this week and her challenge is ANYTHING GOES!! We want EVERYONE to play along and have a chance to win the new SUNNIE stamp, as featured on Karen's gorgeous creation!!

Day Three of Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Welcome back!  It's Day Three of Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and we are super excited to unveil 3 of the latest designs from Annie Rodrigue.  Meet the BEACHY GIRLS...Gabby, Jacquie, and Leilani!  So much fun!  There are 3 more fabulous images in the collection, but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see those lovely ladies!! ;)

I'm using the beautiful (and a tad sexy) Jacguie Cousteau for my card today.  I could have used a few small shells to embellish this card for a fun beachy theme, but instead I opted for my good ol' standby...buttons, because as you know, no self-respecting scuba diver leaves home without them.  Actually, I must be in a button phase right now, because I just can't get enough of them.  My craft room is like a rousing game of "Button, button, who's got the button."  Guess what?!  Cheryl has them!  ALL of them!  LOL!!!

Below you will find all the Krafty Girls who have goodies to show you today and while you're visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because ONE lucky stamper is going to WIN a package of today's stamps!! Woohoo!!!

ALL of our MAY stamps will be available TOMORROW night at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!! We'll be celebrating tomorrow evening at our ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!! It's over at our KKS Facebook fan page!

Happy hoppin'!!

Flower Charm by Mo Manning

Hello, bloggers!  As I mentioned in an earlier post, I spent a crafty weekend with my buddy Shay at a retreat in Capitan, NM a couple of weeks ago.  This is one of the cards I made while I was there.  It features a wonderful image illustrated by Mo Manning for Penny Black and I just fell in love with it the moment I set eyes on it.  

I was trying to hold off posting it as it was intended for my mom for Mother's Day, but unfortunately mom wasn't home over Mother's Day so I didn't mail it out.  She's comfortably back at home now, so I'll pop this in the mail tomorrow.  Of course, now the card is not a surprise, but Mo's Digital Pencil is having a DT call and that's a team I would give my right arm to be on, so I thought I would share it.  Unfortunately, that's my Copic hand and having to do without my right arm would not be a good thing...LOL! Let's hope it doesn't come to that ;)  Anyway, sorry mom.

Wish me luck...with my mom and the DT call!

A New Challenge at Kenny K: Steampunk!


Hey, all!  Thanks for stopping in today.  It's time for Team A at Kenny K's Krafty Krew to share a new challenge and this week it's STEAMPUNK!!!  Create a fun Steampunk project and you could be randomly selected to win some fabulous prizes!

I used Capt. Locke for my card.   She is one sassy lady!  I printed her out sort of large, so she takes up a majority of my card, but I did manage to fit in lots of Steampunky gears and cogs, plus lots of bling.  There's ALWAYS room for bling!

Visit Kenny K's Krafty Krew challenge blog and check out the fab creations of my teammies and if you're looking for Kenny K's incredible images, visit the Kenny K Download store.  Lots of amazing stuff there!  

I best be scootin'!  Until next time, stay crafty!
