Inspirational Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps


It's INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...
the day one of our Krafty designers provides you with a bit of extra
krafty inspiration to help you get creative
with your krafty stamps!

Since our September release featured Christmas themed stamps and products, I felt it would be fun to continue an early festive mood by revisiting one of our older holiday sentiment sets, CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS SENTIMENTS. 

This set features several lovely sentiments in different fonts perfect for so many Christmas projects. I stamped one of the sentiment in  Wicked Black ink on some patterned paper. All paper edges were sponged in Marvelous Mocha ink then topped with gold paint and bit of gold frantage that was hit with a heat gun. I added a chipboard ornament painted in gold and finished it off with a few dots of red stickles. 




CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS SENTIMENTS is on sale this week so hop on over to the shop to scoop it up. 

Don't forget to check out all the new release goodies from this month. We have new stamps, stencils, dots and ink!

Blessings!

Day Two of September Sneak Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps


Welcome back with more 
HOLIDAY goodness for our
SEPTEMBER 2019 release for
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!



Today we have TWO NEW sets by our fabulous
artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen:



First up is....
HOLIDAY WISHES!



These gorgeous larger sized sentiments can be used as the focal point of your creation, in combination with a coloured image, on the interior of cards, on tags, on bags and lots more!



Second up is.....
CHRISTMAS SEALS!




We've updated our trinket style stamp set with a combination of circular sentiments and designs.  These new stamps are perfect to use with circle punches, round dies or on their own.  Think of all the tags you can create and so quickly using these sweet images with our coloured hybrid inks!  Plus they make fabulous additions to your coloured images on cards and scrapbook pages and all your other holiday goodies.

As you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today you will see both stamp sets in action in combination with our awesome new September Kraftin' Kimmie products.....ink, stencils and krafty dots!

I used one of the gorgeous sentiments from HOLIDAY WISHES to make a gift tag. I created the background by first sponging the tag with a combination of our Charming Chartreuse and Mossy Meadow inks. I then used our new HOLLY stencil with some pretty green Nuvo Glacier paste and highlighted the berries with red Stickles. The edges were brushed with gold Nuvo Glacier paste and I added a little gold frantage that was melted with my heat gun. I sponged the sentiment layer with the same combos of ink, stamped the sentiment in Wicked Black and again smudged some gold paste on the edges with my finger. To finish it off, I added a bit of red stickles to the sentiment and around the edges of the tag (a trick learned from Krafty Girl Brigitte!!). 






You'll see MOREof our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends facebook group on Saturday, September 14th at 2pm EST!

Monster Mash...A Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek

Welcome back to Day THREE of our
AUGUST 2019 release at
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Today's set is another amazing set
from artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen!
It's called
MONSTER MASH!





Check out this build-a-monster stamp set...you can mix and match different heads, different bodies, different legs!  Imagine all the endless designs of crazy combinations you can make!  

As I wanted to pair this set with our fun new CREEPY COBWEB stencil, I decided to use one of the monster heads with the legs stamps to create a funky little spider. I started by creating a background with the stencil using our Yummy Yellow, Mossy Meadow and brand new GOBLIN GREEN inks. I also added a spritz of a green Dylusions shimmer spray. After removing the stencil, I traced around the cobweb with a copic multiliner. I then stamped the monster head and legs in Wicked Black ink on Hammermill paper, coloured the creature with copics, fussy cut the image and adhered him with tombow mono glue. A trio of our new SPOOKY DOTS finishes it off. 



As you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today you will see the MONSTER MASH stamp set in action in combination with our awesome new August Kraftin' Kimmie products.....ink, stencils and krafty dots!

Pumpkin Kisses...a Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!

It's Day 2 of the
AUGUST 2019 release for
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Today's set is
called PUMPKIN KISSES
 and is by our fabulous
artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen




This gorgeous set features a selection of LARGER sentiments that can be used as the focal point of your creations, in addition to some coloured images or as a finishing sentiment on the inside of your card!  They are perfect for tags and bags and boxes...oh my!  This set is perfect for all your FALL-ish designs!

Here's my card for today's preview. I watercoloured a fall background on Arches cold pressed watercolour paper. This was an experiment in a different style for me inspired by the "spontaneous" landscapes of Steve Mitchell. I really enjoyed the process but unfortunately overworked the piece...a matter of not knowing when to stop lol. A few areas got a little too dark, but the process was really fun and I plan to give it a try again! I added the "IN ALL THINGS GIVE THANKS" sentiment from our new set stamped in Wicked Black ink.
