October 2020 Release Hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps


Today we are celebrating the October Release that is NOW available in the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!



All three of our new stamp sets, plus two new stencils, a new hybrid ink colour Amazing Azure and new Dazzling Dots were released yesterday and we're excited to share it ALL with you in a fabulous krafty HOP.

First up we have TWO new stamp sets from artist Sabrina van Vloten!
The first is called KRAFTY ELVES.....

and the second is WISH UPON A STAR!


The last stamp set is from our brand new artist, Allison Cope!

Check out WINTER SCENERY!



Our stunning new electric blue hybrid ink colour is called AMAZING AZURE!

As always it's available in large ink pad, ink cube and ink refill.


We have two new AMAZING stencils called....
MAGICAL MOSAIC and SO MANY SQUARES!


And lastly we have the perfect finishing touch for your holiday creations with our new Krafty Dots called......DAZZLING DOTS!


Here's my contribution to today's hop featuring the gorgeous new WINTER SCENERY set by our Krafty team member, Allison. I started by stamping the chalet in Wicked Black ink on Arches cold pressed watercolour paper, masked it and added a few trees from the set also stamped in Wicked Black. I then added the mountains in Granite Grey ink, masked them and stamped two of the tree silhouettes in Charming Chartreuse and Mossy Meadow ink. I then watercoloured the scene, including adding some more detail to the tree lines stamped in our green inks. I added some white gouache as a finishing touch. 




Follow the list below to visit the rest of the Krafty Design Team to see what they have created with the October release. Then jump on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps shop and grab some of these fabulous goodies for yourself!

Happy kraftin'!

Wish Upon a Star...a Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek

  Welcome back to Day TWO of our October Krafty Peeks!



The stamp set we are 'peeking' for you today is the second set this month from artist 
Sabrina van Vloten and it's called.....

WISH UPON A STAR!!


This adorable set features four angels, a bunch of little musical note accessory stamps plus a couple of coordinating sentiments!

I stamped one of the sentiments and heat embossed it in black on Arches cold pressed watercolour paper. I also stamped one of the angels in our Wicked Black ink then watercoloured a winter scene. For a little sparkle, I added Stardust Stickles to the paper edges and angel wings and Platinum Stickles to the star on the tree.




Check out WISH UPON A STAR in so many gorgeous creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs.  You'll also see the new stencils, hybrid ink and krafty dots along the way.  Be sure to leave some love at each stop on the hop because Kimmie will be giving away some krafty $$ to the shop! 

You'll see more of our October goodies tomorrow and then everything will be released after our LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday afternoon at 2pm ET in the Krafty Friends facebook group!  


For now, check out all the sweet angel goodness in today's hop!

Santa's Ride...a Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!

 Welcome to Day 2 of the September 2020 Release Sneak Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps !

Introducing our newest set from Sabrina...



What would a holiday release be without the man in red himself?!  This adorable new set features Santa delivering  Christmas joy by train!  The set includes Santa in the engine, two different sized train cars, and a train track in addition to a bunch of fabulous people and items you can interchange to go in the cars. This set is so versatile...you can make your choo choo as long as you want!




I stamped the images from Santa's Ride in Wicked Black ink on Neenah paper and coloured with Copics. In the smaller car, I layered the reindeer and candy stamps. I sketched in a snowy background with a few evergreen trees and added some snowflakes with a white gel pen. I used some fun design paper from Bella Blvd and used one of the patterns to paper-piece part of the train cars. I also used some of our fabulous new Christmas Dots. I also added some stickles to the light bulbs on the smaller car.




Check out SANTA'S RIDE in action as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today!  You'll also see the new stencils, new ink and new dots along the way!!  Be sure to leave some love at each stop because I'm going to give away some krafty $$ to a lucky commenter!
