Vampire Queen...Release Day At Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Welcome to August Release day at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS and we’re celebrating with a krafty hop!! 



Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of spooky new stamps from all our artists for our August release. We’ve got an adorable new fall kids set from Cheryl called HEY THERE, PUNKIN'! There's a new set of fabulous trick or treaters from Thais called CANDY CORN KISSES! And of course, we are SO excited to share two new wicked stamp sets from Annie called....DRAGON QUEEN and VAMPIRE QUEEN!

I mentioned the other day when I posted a card featuring Dragon Queen that she was one of my new favourite images. I've used my other new favourite image on today's card...this is Vampire Queen! Isn't she fabulous?! I love every detail about her, from that billowing goth dress, to the skulls around her waist, to that fabulous hair. I had SO much fun colouring this stamp!! I used some older Halloween paper from last year...of course it had to have a vintage feel, as that's my favourite style. ;) I used several dies on this card: Spellbinders Parisian Accents for the middle border, an MFT die for the flourish and Ornate Hinges from Dies by SCACD for the embellishments on the left hand side of the card. All paper edges were distressed and sponged with black ink. I added some rhinestones and a metal key as finishing touches.



Here's the Vampire Queen set:



You will get to see all of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our Krafty Hop!

I am tremendously bowled over with the coloring. I can only wish I can achieve this some day. Vampire Queen's "coverlet" looks like Spellbinders was used on it as well as all the die cuts on the card. Super job.
