June Release Day...Pirates!!

It's June Release Day at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!! We’re celebrating with a fun blog hop featuring all of the new glad you could join us!

Over the last few days, we have shared lots of AMAZING new stamps from all our artists for our June release! We’ve got an adorable new pirate kids set from Cheryl called LIL SWASHBUCKLERS, there's a fin-tastic new set from Thais called UNDER THE SEA 2 and lastly, we are excited to share a sassy new stamp set from Annie called BOOTYLICIOUS!

As you hop from blog to blog today, 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!! When you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new stamps are available NOW! And don't forget...if you NEED it all, we have a Gimme Kimmies Kit which features ALL the new June stamps at a discount, but only for a limited time!

The front of my card features my favourite stamp this month. This sassy pirate lass is one of two main images in the Bootylicious set by Annie. In case I haven't told you all, I love pirates. lol I stamped her in Memento Desert Sand and coloured her with Copics. (this is the image I coloured during our online Krafty Krop yesterday...if you attended, you may have seen my "in progress" pictures) The papers are from a Carta Bella pad. All paper was distressed with scissors and black ink. Those pretty hinges on the left hand side were cut with Ornate Hinge from Dies by SCACD. I added a bow and an antiqued key to finish it off. 

I also finished the inside of my card with another new stamp from the Under The Sea 2 set by Thais. Isn't this little octopus fun?! Although, I am wishing I had coloured the starfish in something other than bright orange...doesn't really go with the card. lol  The flourish is an MFT die and the corner embellishement is Contempo Compass Statement Corner from Dies by SCACD

Just wanted to give a shout out to all our Krafty friends who attended the Krop and the Release Party on Facebook yesterday...I had so much fun hanging out with everybody!! It was fun to chat and see what everybody was working on. I'm already looking forward to next time!

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!!

Below you will find all the Krafty Girls who have goodies to show you today and while you're visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN a package of today's stamps!! 

ALL of the JUNE stamps will be available on Saturday night at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop! Saturday is going to be a BUSY day with all that we have planned including and ALL DAY Krafty Krop with challenges every couple of hours and prizes to be won!! Then we'll be celebrating at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY over at our KKS Facebook fan page! Hope you can join us for all the fun this weekend!

Especially for You

Welcome back for another fun challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!! 

This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, Stephanie and her challenge is called DISTRESS IT!! You can create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that is distressed in some way using your distressing tools, scissors and lots of along for your chance to win!

I used one of the cute images from the Sunshiney Day set. I stamped Lexie with Memento Desert Sand ink and coloured her with Copics. I added a little sprinkle of freckles to her cheeks. ;)  The design paper (including her paper pieced dress) is My Mind's Eye. While this exact pad is not available at the KKS, Kimmie does have lots of other paper can find them HERE. All paper edges were distressed with my scissors and then sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The sentiment is from the BFF Trinkets...this set is part of the Frugal Friday Specials this weekend!! It was matted with a little doily cut with an MFT die. The flourish is a Memory Box Die. I added some pearls for a finishing touch. 

Don't forget about the FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS this weekend, 25-50% OFF!!! We've also got a huge SALE on our Kaisercraft paper pads!! 

Pop on over to the KKS Blog to check out the distressed creations by the rest of the Krafty Girls and special Krafty Guests! We hope you can play along. :)
