Bootylicious! (A Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Sneak Peek!)

Welcome back to Day One of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps JUNE previews!!! We are kicking things off with a fabulous new Moonlight Whispers stamp set by Annie Rodrigue called BOOTYLICIOUS featuring two gorgeous female pirates!! You'll find a bounty of gorgeous creations on today's hop featuring both new images and sentiments from the set. You might see some old pirate sets along the way.....such as Billy Blyth, Cutthroat Lizzie, Polly, Captain Scurvy and our Pirate Sentiments set! (links to all of today's sneak peeks will be near the end of my post)

I have been SO excited to play with the new Bootylicious Set!! I absolutely LOVE pirates, and these stamps are a blast to colour! These new pirate lasses by Annie work perfectly with the older KKS pirates, so I decided to make a little scene. I first stamped Billy Blyth (one of my favourite stamps!!) in Memento Desert Sand. Billy works so perfectly with this stamp since he also has a little treasure chest tucked under his arm. I then created a mask for him and stamped the sassy female pirate from Bootylicious over the mask.  The scene was coloured with Copic markers and cut out with Spellbinders. I used two fun sentiments from another older set, Pirate Sentiments, "Yo Ho Ho" and "A Pirates Life for Me!". It's great to be able to show your older stamps a bit of love! The sentiments were stamped in Walnut Stain Distress Ink. All paper edges were distressed and sponged with the Walnut Stain ink. I added a bit of twine and a key to tie in the with treasure chests as finishing touches. 


Here's a shot of the new set:


We  have so much fun planned for the release this month...make sure to check out all the news below!! There will be so many gorgeous sneak peeks, chances to win, challenges to play along with and of course, new stamps to buy and create with!!
