To finish the card, I added some gold acrylic paint, gold frantage, walnut stain disress ink and a big bow.

For today's sneak peek, I made another Christmas tag cut with Spellbinders. I stamped out one of the Merry and Bright Birdies and coloured him as a cardinal with Copics. The beautiful sentiment is part of the set...I absolutely ADORE the fonts of these sentiments and know I will use them for many projects. The two die cut elements were cut with dies from SCACD. I also added a few rhinestones.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge: Distress Inks

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...this week we are challenging you to use DISTRESS INKS! Make a card, scrapbook layout, tag or whatever your krafty heart desires! 

Submit your projects for the chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop. In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card...enter as many times per month as you'd like!!

Have you joined the Krafty Friends FB group?? It's the best place to keep up with all of the goings on as well as sharing YOUR creations and getting inspired by other Krafty Friends' creations!

We will post a Sketch each month that lasts all month long. If you use it in ANY of our Challenges or WW's during that month you will get an additional chance to win a store gift card! You do NOT have to use the sketch, it's just a little extra boost for your mojo if needed. ;) (you'll find it on the KKS blog) 

I made some tags for some  special little gifts I'm working on. This sentiment from PAMPER ME PAULINA was perfect for what I have in mind to make! I love the versatility of Kraftin' Kimmie stamp sets. While the images are awesome and so much fun to colour, the sentiments can also stand alone as the focal point of projects.  The layers were cut with Spellbinders. I used my Distress Oxide inks to create the background for the stamped sentiment. Finally I added a little glitter flower and some Stardust Stickles for just the right amount of sparkle. ;)



Hope you plan to play along! 

Thanks for visiting,

The Kraftin' Kimmie Vault is Open Again...with Zombies and Pirates!


The Krafty Vault is being opened again!


As you know some of our old stamp sets have been retired and hard to find for quite some time. Well, we've opened the krafty vault and today we are rereleasing TWO rubber sets...



These fabulous and sassy sets come as completely unmounted pretrimmed natural red rubber.There are only a FEW of each available right away and then we will be taking preorders for more.

BOOTYLICIOUS comes with two large sassy pirate images by artist Annie Rodrigue plus two coordinating sentiments!

TRICK OR EAT comes with two amazing zombie ladies plus seven coordinating sentiments. 

Both sets are NOW available in the KKS shop!

We've also released a few more rare and retired rubber stamp sets from the Krafty Vault and you can find them all HERE. Some are available for purchase now and some are on preorder.

Since you're already shopping, don't forget about the FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS this week. A selection of FOUR of our fabulous clear stamp sets are 40% OFF but only for the weekend! 

I don't have any new cards to share featuring our vault release, but I thought it would be fun to revisit my cards from the original releases of these sets!

First up is Bootylicious

I absolutely LOVED this set, so I'm thrilled Kimmie has brought it back! I have two cards featuring these awesome pirates. First up is our lovely gal downing some grog!



A little disclaimer with this next card...I had combined Bootylicious with one of the original KKS pirates, Billy Blythe, who is not currently available. However, this awesome lady pirate lounging on her bounty of treasure is one of the two main images in the set!



Next up...Trick or Eat!

I only have a card featuring one of the fantastically quirky zombies from this fun set!
