Snow...huh?  I have to chuckle that I’m posting these snowy cards today…because, here in Southern Calif…our weather is 100 degrees! Don’t let me kid ya…I’m not a cold weather girl…but at the moment… I could go for a little snow!! Winking smile
On to the details! For my first card, I simply cut a snowy hill out of white glitter paper and popped little Lexi onto the hill. Super easy! My sentiment is from the new Winter Trinket set, which I added to a snowflake that was cut on my Cameo, sprayed with adhesive and blinged up with Martha Stewart glitter. The Poinsettias were made with the Spellbinders Poinsettia die.

For my Lucas card, I stamped the image onto white glitter cardstock and fussy cut the snowman after adding a little shading to him with my Copics. His scarf was colored separately and added to the snowman, giving the card a very 3D look. Again, all my snowflakes were cut on my Cameo along with frames for both cards.
Supplies used:
Lexi card ~ My Mind’s Eye ~ Merry and Bright
Lucas card ~ Various different paper from my stash
American crafts white glitter card stock
Spellbinders Poinsettia Die
McGill Pine Branch Punch
Marvy Oak Leaf Punch
Martha Stewart Glitter
3M Spray Adhesive
Thank you so very much for visiting!!

Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks ~ Day 1

The weather is getting a little cooler....we're putting away our flip flops and shorts and pulling out our fuzzy sweaters and warm socks!! We're celebrating winter at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ...and lots more!! (You'll have to wait until later in the week to see what other themes we have up our sleeves!!) Get ready for our OCTOBER 2012 RELEASE!!!!!
We are kicking off the *New* OCTOBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and first off, we’d like to introduce you to a beautiful new set of Trinkets!!! We are very excited to share with you our….WINTER TRINKETS!!!
These circular sentiment stamps have been created and designed by the totally talented Krafty Girl,  Nicole Aspinall!! They are made especially to fit in your 1 3/8ths and 1 ¾ inch punches, for quick and easy cutting!!! This month we are releasing the WINTER Trinkets set which includes EIGHT trinkets in each set with four of each size and they come as both positive and negative images, so you can use your black or brown ink with the positive stamps and use your coloured inks with the negative ones!! You will get the set as a completely unmounted full sheet of deeply etched grey rubber.
All of the Krafty Girls are cardmakers primarily and we have found these to be such a quick and easy way to add a sentiment to our creations or to use as the focal point on our cards! They are also perfect for your Smashbook pages and your scrapbook pages, not to mention your altered items and tags!! No stamper's stash is complete without them!
Now just you wait 'til you see the awesome samples the Krafty Girls have put together for you....and be sure to comment on each and every stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN the new WINTER TRINKETS set!!!
For my WINTER TRINKETS project, I thought it would be fun to add a sentiment to to a Wine Tag!  I simply cut the wine tag out on my Silhouette along with a few different snowflakes.  I glitter embossed them along with the a mat for the wine tag and for even bling, because all that gold glitter just wasn't quite enough ...I added a few rhinestones too.  A gift certificate can be popped into the tag, making this a perfect gift for someone special.  How’s that for a simple, yet fun way to dress up a Holiday gift!  Easy, right?
Thank you so much for popping by today!! Smile

Kraftin’ Kimmie Halloween Treat Bags, Monster Munch Recipe, a Skull Challenge…and a video too!! Whew!! :)

Grab a cuppa and sit back…cause I’ve got plenty of fun stuff to tell you today!  First of all…our challenge today over the Krafty Kimmie blog is skulls!  HA!  That’s right!  Skulls!  Our hostess with the mostest, Krafty ghoul Cheryl has a thing..for skulls!  LOL
At first glance..this might sound like an extra challenging challenge.  BUT…it’s really not.  For starters, did you know that there are over a dozen Kraftin’ Kimmie images that have skulls? How’s that for a bit of trivia!?  Also, all you really have to do is use a skull in some way on your project along with a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp.  Skull Paper? You’re in.  Skull embellishment? Yes!  Skull ribbon?  Well…heck yeah!
I made Halloween Treat Bags, threw together some Monster Munch to fill them with and tucked in a Skeleton Key that I made on my Cameo…Tada!

No one will know who "BOO"ed who's places!

Just two short days to work your spell, 

Keep it secret, hide it well.

Please join the fun, the seasons here . 

Just spread these "BOO's" and Halloween cheer.

Include a note that says:

You have been BOOED! 
Please keep it going by following these directions:
