    Monster Sentiments...August 2022 Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks (Day one)

           Who's ready for lots of brand new Krafty goodies?!

    It's time for our August Release Peeks to begin 


    Today's set features an assortment of fabulous spooky sentiments
    designed by Sabrina van Vloten
     and it's called.....
    MONSTER SENTIMENTS!


    As you hop around the design team's blogs today you'll be able to check out MONSTER SENTIMENTS! in action 
    in combination with a lot of our other new 
    August Kraftin' Kimmie products!  

    You will spot our newest addition to the Kraftin' Kimmie Hybrid Ink rainbow!  It's a gorgeous new colour.....called ALLURING AMETHYST!



    As always it will be available in full sized ink pads, ink cubes and ink refills!

    We've got TWO new Krafty Stencils for this month's release to help add some funky fun to your creations!  

    They are called....
    DAZZLING DIAMONDS!


    and PUMPKIN PATCH! 
    A New 2 Piece Layered Stencil!!


    Both designs are perfect for all your cards, scrapbook pages, mixed media and more!

    Plus we have our exclusive AUGUST ADD ON BUNDLE!

    Our exciting Add-On bundle this month features several amazing products which will coordinate with our new goodies and will help you enhance your new creations!! 


    This month's special curated Add On Bundle includes:

    • Exclusive Coordinating Chipboard
    • Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween Label Tape
    • Doodlebug Sprinkles

      A limited number will be available in the shop on Saturday afternoon after our Live Release Party!

    My card features an inked background and a fun selection from the MONSTER SENTIMENTS set. I love that these sentiments can be used either as the focal point of a card, or in combination with any of our fun Halloween stamp sets. To create the background, I first sponged some white cardstock in Whimsical Wisteria ink. I then placed our new DAZZLING DIAMONDS stencil with one of the cutouts centred on the cardstock. I traced around that diamond with a multiliner, then created a pattern of diamonds by moving the stencil and continuing to trace the outlines. When all diamonds were drawn in, I coloured the spaces between the diamonds with a black copic marker. Next, I masked the centre diamond, positioned our Daring Diamonds stencil over the mask and inked this next pattern with our brand new ALLURING AMETHYST ink. I removed the mask, inked up the sentiment in Wicked Black ink and added some embellishments from our AUGUST ADD ON BUNDLE (Doodle Bug Sprinkles and chipboard coated in stickles). Finally I framed the sentiment with some dollar store pearls.


    You'll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of the August Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Release Party 

    on  Saturday, August 13th at 2 pm ET in the Krafty Friends group
