Bubble Bubble Toil and Trouble...Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks Start Today!!

It's almost time for another fantastic release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...and we're gettin' our Spook on for August! That's right, all the stamps in this month's release are Halloween themed!  Each day leading up to the release this Sunday, the Krafty Girls will be showcasing stamps by different Krafty Artists..tune in to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog each day for links to the participating Krafty Girls' blogs. On Sunday, we'll celebrate release day with a ghoulish blog hop certain to offer loads of spooky inspiration as you'll see a collection of cards featuring an assortment of the August stamps.

Today, we are introducing a trio of whimsical little witches by Krafty artist Cheryl Alger! This is "You're Boo-tiful" who comes with the sentiment matching her name. This little witch was a lot of fun to colour up with her cute hat and curly hair. I went with traditional Halloween colours to match the paper from Echo Park. One of these double sided Echo Park sheets had a bunch of tags and little sentiments on one side..I used two of them to frame the witch and for the sentiment. The sentiment was stamped with black Versafine Ink. I also used Bundled Sage and Black Soot Distress Inks on the paper edges. The little black "stitches" were added with a Copic multiliner.


"You're Boo-tiful" was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento ink and coloured with Copics.


Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E7, E59  Clothing: C3, C5, C7, C9, V01, V04, V06, V09, YG00, G20, G21, YG67  Pumpkin: (I didn't write these down, so I'm working from memory...and I really fiddled around with a bunch of colours as I wasn't happy with it, so I'm pretty sure this is not an accurate or complete list. Sorry!) Y06, Y23, YR04, YR07, E08, E18
