Hi there, welcome to another Saturday challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  I'm so excited for this weeks challenge because we get to showcase some of the older rubber stamps from KKS that are no longer available for purchase!  I've chosen to use this adorable stamp called Snips And Snails.  Once I coloured the image I cut it out so that I could pop it up on the background that I created,  I used distress inks for the sky and grass.  Then I used a stitched rectangle die from YNS to crop down the background.  The designer paper is from the Puppy Love paper pad by Doodlebug.  The heart and footprint are stickers also from Doodlebug.  I finished it off with some cute die cut clouds.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and have a fun and krafty week!

This is another fun stamp by Annie!  I love the facial expressions she does for each stamp!  I decided to make a bit of a background and frame the image to get a framed picture look!  I first coloured the image with Copics then cut her out and popped her up on the embossed brick background from a embossing folder by Darice.  I used the grass die from YNS and the stitched rectangle die also from YNS.  The fancy top is a die from Tim Holtz called On The Edge Die.  I added a few flowers and a sentiment to finish it off.  The banner die is by SSS.  The background designer paper is from the Doodlebug - Kitten Smitten paper pad.  I am so happy with how it turned out!  I hope you have been enjoying all the wonderful projects so far!

Hi there!  Today my card features the adorable stamp called ANGIE!!  I love the sentiments that come with this stamp!  Who here does mornings!!  I don't!!  I get my day going with a good cup of Earl Grey Tea......never coffee!! 
I decided to color up this image with Polychromos pencils instead of my usual Copics.  I love colouring on kraft paper!  So, the beautiful designer paper is from the Doodlebug - Cream and Sugar paper pad.  The heart shape sprinkles and the tea cup are all part of the Cream and Sugar line.  Other items used are a YNS - fishtail die and a MS Lace Border punch.
