I created a card featuring the little witch from I WANT CANDY and some kitties from the SCAREDY CATS sets (the sentiment is from Scaredy Cats). I stamped my images in Wicked Black ink and masked them before applying a background sky in Purple Pansy and Purple Petunia inks. The grass in a combo of our new GOBLIN GREEN ink and Mossy Meadow with some blades of grass added with copics. I also used our BATS AND MOONS stencil to add a couple of bats to the sky. All images were coloured in copics on Hammermill paper.

Monster Mash...A Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek

Welcome back to Day THREE of our
AUGUST 2019 release at
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Today's set is another amazing set
from artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen!
It's called
MONSTER MASH!





Check out this build-a-monster stamp set...you can mix and match different heads, different bodies, different legs!  Imagine all the endless designs of crazy combinations you can make!  

As I wanted to pair this set with our fun new CREEPY COBWEB stencil, I decided to use one of the monster heads with the legs stamps to create a funky little spider. I started by creating a background with the stencil using our Yummy Yellow, Mossy Meadow and brand new GOBLIN GREEN inks. I also added a spritz of a green Dylusions shimmer spray. After removing the stencil, I traced around the cobweb with a copic multiliner. I then stamped the monster head and legs in Wicked Black ink on Hammermill paper, coloured the creature with copics, fussy cut the image and adhered him with tombow mono glue. A trio of our new SPOOKY DOTS finishes it off. 



As you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today you will see the MONSTER MASH stamp set in action in combination with our awesome new August Kraftin' Kimmie products.....ink, stencils and krafty dots!


You'll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends facebook group on Saturday, August 17th at 2pm EST!

Pumpkin Kisses...a Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!

It's Day 2 of the
AUGUST 2019 release for
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Today's set is
called PUMPKIN KISSES
 and is by our fabulous
artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen




This gorgeous set features a selection of LARGER sentiments that can be used as the focal point of your creations, in addition to some coloured images or as a finishing sentiment on the inside of your card!  They are perfect for tags and bags and boxes...oh my!  This set is perfect for all your FALL-ish designs!

Here's my card for today's preview. I watercoloured a fall background on Arches cold pressed watercolour paper. This was an experiment in a different style for me inspired by the "spontaneous" landscapes of Steve Mitchell. I really enjoyed the process but unfortunately overworked the piece...a matter of not knowing when to stop lol. A few areas got a little too dark, but the process was really fun and I plan to give it a try again! I added the "IN ALL THINGS GIVE THANKS" sentiment from our new set stamped in Wicked Black ink.

Coffee Makes Everything Better at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps


Welcome back to another month of Skrappy Fun
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!


We challenge YOU to make Anything BUT a Card!!!
So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags, boxes...pretty much anything that includes a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and make sure it's a NEW creation!  As soon as we have at least five people playing, we'll be giving away a PRIZE!!!  yep!  One lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

I made a K-cup holder that's perfect as a little gift for your caffeine-loving friends! The template for this project can be found HERE. I constructed the base out of kraft cardstock and then finished each panel with a dark brown cardstock mat and patterned paper. I used our Creamy Caramel ink and Beautiful Burlap stencil to create a bit of visual interest and sponged all edges with our Marvelous Mocha ink. The sentiment, coffee beans and coffee cup are all from our BREW-TIFUL DAY stamp set (they were stamped in Marvelous Mocha ink). The coffee beans and cup were coloured directly on the patterned paper with copic markers and I used a touch of white prisma coloured pencil for the highlights on the coffee cup lid. The java button was a fun embellishment I've had in my stash for years. To finish this gift, I dropped in two of my favourite salted caramel K-cups.



You have a whole month to play along until 
Monday, August 26th at midnight EST.
Also be sure to share your creations on the Krafty Friends facebook page because we LOVE to see your stuff!


Check out some incredible inspiration from the rest of the Krafty Design Team below, then join us for all the fun!!

 STITCHING!

It's my turn to play hostess this week and I thought it would be fun to add STITCHING to our projects. I used to add stitching to nearly every project several years back as it adds a lovely finishing touch. However, it's something I rarely do anymore...time to fix that! I pulled out our adorable WILD WORLD set and stamped the rhino image in our Totally Taupe ink on watercolour paper. The image panel was done in watercolour paints. I added a bit of machine stitching, crocheted trim and pearls to finish it off.

Focus on a Sentiment at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello and welcome to another fun
Saturday Challenge
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Our challenge for you is to
 FOCUS ON THE SENTIMENT!

My sentiment card uses our fantastic set HAPPY THOUGHTS. I sponged the background with our inks: Charming Chartreuse, Lovely Lagoon, Mermaid Melody and Sparkling Sapphire. I stamped the sentiment in Wicked Black ink and then used our Starburst Stencil with Bo Bunny Sugar glitter paste to add a little pizzazz.
