Birthday Trinkets...a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Sneak Peek!

Hi crafty friends! It's almost time for another release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and we're kicking off the sneak peeks today with a brand new set of "Birthday Trinkets" designed by Krafty Girl Nicole Aspinall! The Trinkets are so versatile. They are perfect to use in combination with your stamped images or just on their own as the focal point of your card. They are also great in scrapbook layouts, journals, tags and smashbooks.

I made a little 4x4 card so that I could use up some scraps of MME paper. I stamped out this fun Birthday Trinket on kraft cardstock  with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I thought I'd try my hand at making some little pinwheels with toothpick handles to go along with the fun sentiment and font...I love that the Birthday Trinkets have a variety of fonts and designs! I used my Spellbinders Circles to cut it out and matted it with brown cardstock and a Lacey Circle cut out of kraft cardstock. The flourish is an MFT die and the pearls were made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. I also pulled out the In Stitches Set to add some faux stitching in the Memento Ink. This is such a great set to have on hand for when you don't feel like pulling out a machine. :)
