Hi friends and welcome to the release day blog hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! 

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of AMAZING new stamps from all our artists! We’ve got something for everyone. Cheryl Alger has designed a brand new set called HALLOWEEN LULU. We also have two adorable sets of trick or treaters from Emilie Goulet called TOO CUTE TO SPOOK 1 AND 2!! And of course we have an amazing new set of six scrumptious CANDY GIRLS from Annie Rodrigue! Oh, and don’t forget the BRAND NEW line of stamps that will coordinate with all your images called HALLOWEEN TRINKETS by the lovely Nicole Aspinall!!! 


You will get to see most of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our AUGUST Krafty Hop! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of these incredible stamps from the new release!! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available!

And of course, as always, we have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’!! The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time!!

For my card today, I inked up one of the adorable new images from the "Too Cute to Spook 2" by Emilie Goulet. This toilet paper mummy cracks me up. :)  Remember all those budget-friendly homemade costumes from back in the day?? lol  I pulled out some older Halloween papers which I believe were from Echo Park. All paper edges were sponged with black ink.The image frame was created with Spellbinders Labels 10. I also raided my first aide box for some mummy-friendy gauze wrap for the "ribbon". The little pumpkin is a button I picked up at the fabric store last year. The sentiment is one of the fabulous new Halloween Trinkets


Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95, R20  Hair: E31, E33, E37, E59, BV29  Shirt: YG03, G82, G85, C7  Toliet paper: C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9   Some additional shading was added to the image with a black Conte crayon applied with a blending stump.

Here's a shot of the inside where I used another of the Halloween Trinkets:
