Come and Meet Stacey Slapshot!

Welcome to Day ONE of our first release of 2018 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Today we're kickin' off the party with an amazing winter set by artist, Annie Rodrigue! It's called STACEY SLAPSHOT!!! 

Kim is super excited to share this set because.....some of you have seen it already! That's because it was the Super Secret stamp set that was included in the Winter Krafty Kard Kit!!! So those who pre-ordered it already have it in their inky little fingers and you'll get to see their creations today and on release day!

This strong girl stamp set comes with one large main image and FIVE awesome sentiments!!

Included in the Krafty Kit this time was some super cool purple patterned papers from Pink & Main so I just had to colour up my Stacey girl using lots of purple (big surprise right!?!)

All of the Krafty Krew design team members and Special Krafty Guests listed below have lots of great designs to share with you today featuring the STACEY SLAPSHOT stamp set! Be sure to hop around and leave lots of love at each and every stop because one lucky commenter will WIN a $10 gift voucher each day this week to the krafty shop!

Power Poppy & PageMaps Unite!

Hey everyone!  I hope you’ve had a great week and a fun New Years.  Our New Years was extremely low key and uneventful…. but I’m good with that!

Today we’re pairing up with PageMaps and Power Poppy and showcasing some fun card sketches and cool Power Poppy products!

I received this gorgeous, simple card map from Becky Fleck, the creator of PageMaps.

I just knew I had to feature the “Loving Tulips” stamp set and it’s coordinating dies!
Copics: Y08, E08, YR18, R17, Y21, BG72, BG78, YG63

I also used the “Celebrate” sentiment from the “Pure Prairie Spirit” stamp set stamped on my dimensional banner.

For this month's Power & Spark Challenge, we're asking you to "Grab A Map," and get in on some Power Poppy Fun! We've teamed up with's CardMaps to showcase 10 new sketches featuring some of Power Poppy's fabulous stamp sets. You can find all ten sketches along with design team samples HERE! So grab a map, use it to spark a little cardmaking creativity and then, link your creation up HERE.  If you play along, you'll be in the running to WIN a $50 Shopping Spree to the Power Poppy Shop!

Last Minute Gift Plus My Power Poppy 2017 Favs!

Hey all!  There are only a few more days until Christmas and today is my son’s last day of school before his holidays begin so I was up late last night making a last minute gift for his bus driver, Danielle.

Since Power Poppy has SO many amazing stamp sets, I decided to feature some of my favourites on some of the cards I made her.

Here’s a little peek video where I share all 6 cards that I made…

My cards feature the stamp sets; Tea in the Garden, Nice Things to Say, Winter Wonderland, Under Glass, Succulent Singles and also Peony Muse.

I also wanted to share some of my favourite Power Poppy creations with you today from the past year.  Click on the name of the card to take you to it's original blog post.

Light Up the Night!

Happy Wednesday all!  It’s been a busy creative week… which means I’ve had lots of fun!! 

Today is the reveal of my second fun tutorial over on Splitcoaststampers.  Today I share a tutorial on how to use Chibitronic lights and how to incorporate them into your next card project.  They really are a fun supply to use and create with.  Come check it out HERE.

I also created this very simple no-line colouring card for this week’s Splitcoast card sketch too…
Aren’t those skating animals adorable??  You can see the sketch and gallery link right here.  Join us this week… can’t wait to see what you make!

Stayed tuned Friday when the Bloom Brigaders from Power Poppy share some of their favourite projects of 2017!  Join me Friday right here on the blog.

Have a great week!
