My Best Friends are Witches! (A Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!)

Welcome to Day THREE of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps AUGUST KRAFTY PREVIEWS!!! Today we have an awesome new Halloween set by artist, Annie Rodrigue called MY BEST FRIENDS ARE WITCHES...it has two gorgeous main images plus FIVE coordinating sentiments! 



For today's preview, I stamped this incredible witch in Memento Desert Sand and coloured her with copics. Unfortunately it's not showing up in the picture, but I used a Wink Of Stella glitter brush on the "potion" exploding from her cauldron. I absolutely LOVE the shimmer this product gives...next time I'll have to try shooting from a different angle to capture the effect. If you are a glitter-lover, you will definitely want to order one of these pens from the KKS shop! The paper is Graphic 45 Rare Oddities. The sentiment tag is included in this paper pad. I also fussy cut some "ingredient" bottles from one of the design paper sheets to use as an embellishment beside the image panel. The flourish is a memory box die and the corners embellishments are a die from SCACD



Here's a shot of the full set: 

Below you will find all the Krafty Girls and Guests who have goodies to show you today and while you're visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky stamper from all the comments this week is going to WIN some $$ to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!


ALL of our AUGUST stamps will be available on Saturday night at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop! Not only will you be able to purchase the NEW spooky stamps but we are also releasing a Limited Edition HALLOWEEN KARD KIT...there are only a certain number available so if you want one, you'd better be at the party!! Be sure to join us for an hour of celebrating the new stamp sets, fun and prizes on Saturday evening at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!!

A Treat for Someone Sweet...Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Previews Day Two!

Hey everyone!! Welcome back to day TWO of our AUGUST Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!!! Today we are sharing a super cute set of stamps by artist Emilie Goulet, perfect for all the sweet little goblins in your life! It is called A TREAT FOR SOMEONE SWEET!! This fun set includes THREE main images plus NINE perfectly coordinating sentiments!! They are ADORABLE!!!


I used the adorable pig from A Treat for Someone Sweet. I ventured away from the traditional pink colour for this little piggy and opted for warm grey with brown spots. I fussy cut the image and used some VERY old papers from my stash! This set comes with several coordinating sentiments, but I thought it would be fun to use one of the brand new Spook-tacular Sentiments, a set that we previewed yesterday! I used versafine ink and stamped the sentiment right on the design paper. To finish it off, I distressed the papers, sponged with black ink, added some crocheted trim and a little button.


Here's a look at the set:


Be sure to join us for all the fun and excitement and prizes on SATURDAY beginning at 6pm EST!! Hope you can come hang out with the us at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY...to add to the excitement, a limited edition Halloween Kard Kit will be released on Saturday night!
