Welcome back to another day of our release this month!!!! This is another great set we put out this month. 

I used some of the previous inks (Yummy Yellow and Marvellous Mocha) and our new inks to create this awesome sunset background on my card. Once it was dry I then added the tree and the accents using our Wicked Black ink.

To the right is the card with the lights out. The ghost glow in the dark!!!!
Aren't they awesome. I used the WOW glow in the dark embossing powder over top of the black ghosts I added to my card. Heat set them and voila! done!!!

August Krafty Peeks....Day THREE!! Grateful Pumpkins!


Welcome back to Day THREE of our
AUGUST Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Today we are featuring the FIRST of two new sets from artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen for our Fall and Halloween release!
This one is called.....GRATEFUL PUMPKINS!


This set of autumn images and sentiments is simply stunning! It contains several gorgeous solid pumpkin images, five lovely fall sentiments in a fabulous font and many little leaves and scrolly accessory stamps! 

These stamps go PERFECTLY with all three of our gorgeous new Hybrid Inks!!! You'll have so much fun stamping them up with the Pumpkin Patch, Purple Petunia and Mossy Meadow inks!!


I truly had some fun with these new inks.
The pumpkin on the card above is stamped once with Pumpkin Patch then I took the same stamp and just inked the outside of the stamp and stamped over the original image.
Isn't the effect neat!

On the card below I stamped the pumpkin using Marvellous Mocha and then used an embossing powder for a local Canadian company called Emerald Creek (sponsor for our weekend retreat!!!!) which is called chunky rust. What is neat with this embossing powder is not only the colours but there is flock in it too!!!!

August Krafty Peeks....Day TWO!! Spooky Suckers!


Welcome to Day TWO of our August Krafty Peeks
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We've got a couple of Halloween cuties for you in today's peeks by artist Emilie Goulet!
Introducing.....SPOOKY SUCKERS!


This adorable set features two tiny vampires plus three fun sentiments! You'll 'vant' this set to use on all your creepy creations! They are super fun on their own but imagine them in combination with the Haunted House set that we shared yesterday!!

 

Aren't these the sweetest little vamps you've seen in a long time!
I wanted to play with these images and colour them as if they are dressed up for Halloween.
I like how the skin tone turned out on both the little girl and the little boy.

I used the same paper line (doodlebug but different patterns for each card) and the same layout  and they look completely different!

You will see these sweeties in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs! You'll see the list of Krafty design team members below and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop!!

Inspirational Wednesday

Good morning krafty friends! 
Welcome to an Inspirational Wednesday post!

Each week one of our amazing design team members will be here to inspire you to get creative with your krafty stamps!

This week it is me!!! I will be showing you my creation with the
A BREW-TIFUL DAY clear stamp set!




Doesn't coffee make everything better!
I went with a more rustic approach on this card using our awesome ink MARVELLOUS MOCHA with a stencil to create the background. I paired this with fabrics (ribbon and twine) and some little paper pieces I had. 
This turned out to be a pretty card which was easy to do and used up some scraps I had laying around.

As an added bonus Kimmie has put the 
A BREW-TIFUL DAY stamp set on SALE! 

Be sure to scoop it up today at a SPECIAL price and before it is gone forever!

Happy Kraftin'!
