YNS Blog Hop

Welcome to the YNS Holiday Preview Party Hop!
I am so pleased to have been asked to participate and am tickled pink with the new images!
There are 8 new digital images by the talented
Penny & Laurence of Omnia Designs!

Would you like to earn an EXCLUSIVE FREE YNS digi stamp!?

The party begins on Nicole's blog where you will pick up your first letter to build a phrase, which will enable you to get an EXCLUSIVE FREE digi from YNS.
There will also be 10 randomly selected winners from the comments that will each WIN ONE FREE DIGI of their choice. 
Please HOP to Nicole's blog for more details.

I have used the cute Teddie's stocking for my card today, I tried to go a little more rustic so this could be used for either a boy or a girl. I have colored the fur with copics then added a thin layer of prisma pencil over top to smooth out the texture a bit. 

If you have been hopping along and building your phrase…
The next letter you will need is:

Your next hop is the wonderful Tracy and a full list of all the participants is at the bottom of the post.

Winners will be posted at our online Facebook Release party, December 1st @ 7:00pm EST on the Your Next Stamp Facebook fan page.

Simple but useful

Would you like MORE chances to win our awesome Kraftin Kimmie stamps? We've created a fun new SHARE to WIN promotion called WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS!!! Wanna play? Welcome to our last Wonderful Wednesday challenge for November!!

Each Wednesday (except on release preview weeks) we are posting some creations by our fabulous Krafty Girls and we're asking YOU to share your Kraftin' Kimmie kreations here for a chance to WIN!! There are three chances to enter for each month of Wonderful Wednesdays...... but this is the last one for November!! And as's ANYTHING GOES!!...
Your submission must use at least one Kraftin Kimmie stamps but can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered name it!! It must be a NEW creation (so you can't submit something you made last year...haha!) and you can enter every week for a chance to win and at the end of the month, we'll draw a winner for a Kraftin' Kimmie Prize Pack!!! What do you think.....wanna WIN??

This week I have made a simple little notebook for my husband. I actually made a larger one with a pocket and was gonna put "Honey Do List" on the front but thought that might be pushing it with him! So I just made a small notebook for him to use for lists as we have tablets thru our entire home, getting older and all that I guess! This cutie pie is from our latest release and is part of the Together is Better set. 

Sorry, I forgot to keep track of my copics this time, if you need to know I am sure I could make a reasonable guess for you. 

**Please note that you are more than welcome to combine this Share to Win challenge with other challenges, BUT not our regular weekly challenges. This must be a new and different creation than anything you create for our Saturday challenges.

Let it snow!

I am okay with this title for a bit, I love me some snow around the holidays but then I could go right into spring! So if you haven't guessed it, our challenge this week at Kraftin Kimmie's is "Let it Snow" and our hostess with the mostest is Deborah who makes some beautiful cards if I do say so myself!

I have used one of our newer images, this is You're so Cool and I love everyone of the images in this set but hadn't colored this one up yet.

It doesn't have quite as much contrast with the papers and embellies as I like but it works!

Anything but a card!

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I have an altered project for the challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil challenge blog which is "Anything but a card" and our hostess this week is the lovely Cathy.

I have made a tissue box cover for our challenge and have it sitting on my desk at work. Makes me happy.

My image is Nurse, quite appropriate don't ya think? I only decorated the front with an image and flowers but it does have the dp on the other sides and top.

Not too early for Christmas!

Hello everyone! Today I have my card for the awesome Mo Manning challenge blog and this week we would like to see "Christmas or a Winter Holiday" theme to your projects. This weeks hostess is Franz (I sooo admire her work!) and I am happy to be able to get another Christmas card made.

This is Little Elf Kit and she has been glittered like nobody's business!

My sentiment is by LOTV and I have stamped it on black cardstock in white ink and then embossed with white embossing powder to get the chalkboard look. Papers are Basic Grey from a few years ago but I love the rich colors on them. I have used glamour dust on her trim and glamour dust gold on the star.

Okay, here is your chance to play along AND get a Christmas card made up for your stash! Plus you could win $5 to spend at the store!

November Krafty Kardmaking Kit

It's time for NEW STUFF!!! Haha!! We're kicking off the November Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Release with our brand NEW NOVEMBER Love Letters Krafty Kardmaking Kit!
You've been lovin' our first three Kard Kits so here's our newest design!!! Do you live far away from the nearest Krafty store?? Is it hard to choose all your krafty goodies online without seeing them in person?? Or do you ever feel like you’re running out of krafty mojo?? Need a little help putting things together to make a fabulous card?? Or maybe you don’t have the time to design something yourself and want to just be able to put things together quickly! Well, we’ve taken out all the guess work for you and designed a Krafty Kardmaking Kit with everything you need to make SIX awesome cards AND have some goodies leftover to whip up some extras!
We’ve taken our krafty know-how and done all the designing for ya!! We’ve chosen and coordinated patterned papers, cardstocks, envelopes, sweet heart shaped doiles and several different types of embellishments including adhesive pearls and heart charms..... and you’re ready to go!! With the November kit, you’ll also receive YOUR CHOICE of one of our gorgeous $8 stamps!! Choose whichever one you like from our many lines and styles of rubber stamps!

 1 pkg of pink adhesive pearls and several heart shaped charms!
- YOUR CHOICE of any $8 stamp from ANY of our lines of stamps....including the new ones!!

I have used one of my favorite Kraftin Kimmie stamps, this is Dandy Lion and I thought she would be perfect for this Krafty Kard kit. I haven't used all of the goodies I got so I have stuff to add to a second card too!

Additionally, our Krafty Girl design team has taken ONLY what's found in this kit (plus their own white cardstock, ink and colouring medium) and created SIX amazing card samples for you (you'll get to see them all as you hop around the links at the bottom of this post)!!! And with this kit you'll receive a gorgeous colour handout, emailed directly to you, featuring pictures of the six cards PLUS some extras and the sketches to go with each creation!! It couldn't be any easier!!

Warm and Cozy

Hey everyone! So glad it is Saturday, this has been a really busy work week for me and I am looking forward to just being able to sit and craft for a bit. Plus, with it being dark so early, all I want to do is sleep when I get home, not a very productive way to be.

This week at Kraftin Kimmies our challenge is brought to us by the fabulous Karen and she would like us to go with the theme "Warm and Cozy" and with the weather we had today, that sounds good to me!

I have used one of Cheryl's images today, this is from the  Lulu and Friends stamp set, doesn't her bear look squeezable?

I think this card needs more embellishments but I just couldn't decide what to put on it, I have a hard time covering up stuff on cards, I want to SEE the pretty paper haha! So a bow, a heart and some glittery dots finish it off for me. Papers are MME Jack and Jill line I bought at Michaels.

Okay, we always love to see your take on our challenges and Kimmie is giving away a stamp to the randomly drawn winner so you can't win it if you don't play!

Anything goes!

Good morning all my crafty friends! Today I have another card for the Mo Manning challenge blog and this is an easy challenge, "Anything Goes"! And with the amazing amount of wonderful images available at the store you can find something to suit anyone. I have used an image I have been wanting to color up for awhile, this is A Little Birdie told me.

I have used some flowers my friend Kathi sent me and I have used some as they came and others I have stacked up for some variety. I hate coloring wood but this image made it easy as all of the grain is already drawn in. Alright, lets see what you have to show us, we love to see your creativity and you can also win a $5 voucher to the store to get more images!

Wow! can you guys believe it is November already? Time sure does fly and here is your reminder to turn your clocks back this weekend too. That is one of the worst things about this time of year, losing so much daylight. Oh well, whining won't change it right?

Today my card is for the Oozak Challenge blog and our theme for the next two weeks is Anything goes "Thanks". I chose a sweet Sassy Cheryl image for my card this time.

He is colored with a mix of copics and Shinhan markers, my list of supplies will be at the bottom of the post. I have used an older Echo Park paper pad (This and That Christmas) but Rusty has TONS of christmas paper available at the store. I swear it is the largest selection I have ever come across. Some chipboard snowflakes, a little paper piecing on the scarf and WOC flowers and we are all set! Make sure you play along, you can enter to be a guest designer and to win a prize from the store!
