August Krafty Peeks....Day TWO!!! Vampire Queen!

Today the Krafty Girls and I are sharing creations made with the WICKEDLY awesome new stamp sets by Annie....Dragon Queen and Vampire Queen!!!  

Just like yesterday, I used the new Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale paper pads and stuck with green, purple and black for the VAMPIRE QUEEN!  I coloured her up and then used the 'out of the box' technique to cut her out with my oval Spellbinder die.  Using black distress ink, I sponged around the image with the die still on, giving it that white frame.  All the matting cardstocks are by Stampin' Up!  Can you see that black spider's web behind her?  I cut that out with my Silhouette.....haven't used that thing in far too long!  I added some black rhinestones, some black twine, some cheesecloth (love it for Halloween creations)!  I added a bunch of different flowers plus some bat punches and added one of the fabulous sentiments that comes with the set.  But the best part is the little glass jar that I filled with black beads!!  Looks kinda cool, right?!!!

You'll find so many gorgeous creations on today's hop featuring both new images and sentiments from the set! We know you are just going to LOVE these awesome ladies and be inspired by all the incredible designs!! Each set comes with the fabulous queen image stamp, plus THREE coordinating sentiments PLUS an accessory stamp!! They're spook-tacular!

Below you will find all the Krafty Girls & Guests 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 some $$ to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!! Woohoo!!!

ALL of our AUGUST stamps will be available on Saturday night at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!! Be sure to join us for an hour of celebrating the new stamp sets, fun and prizes at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!! Come hang out with the Krafty Girls, Guests and me!!

I used kraft cardstock for the base and added some SU cardstock for matting!  I added a few little flags at the base of the image layer, some twine and a button across the middle and also a bunch of Wild Orchid flowers!  Lastly I stamped one of the fabulous sentiments on a kraft tag at the bottom!  So fun!

Last Stop on the Krafty Hop!!

I'm so super excited about the NEW July rubber stamp release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.....which is NOW available!!  I just love each and every set we've got for you and I'm sure you'll agree now that you've hopped around the Krafty Girls' and Guests' blogs today and seen them all in action!!!

This is the last stop on today's celebratory HOP and I'm sharing with you this card featuring the new OH, SNAP! stamp set!!!  I think this might be my fave image EVAH!!!  

I used my new paper pad by First Edition called New Bloom.  I simply adore the colour combination and all the glittah!!  Using the colours as my jumping off point, I coloured up the sweet girlie image with my Copic markers and used my Spellbinder dies to cut her out and layer up the image.  I used SU cardstock for the base and matting and then used a die to create the heart border.  I used a combination of Prima, Petaloo and Wild Orchid flowers and pearl brads and lastly added one of the fabulous sentiments!!  Have I said that I {heart} this stamp set!!!

Not only are all the new stamp sets available, but I've got lots of paper pads on SALE 20-40% OFF right now, so scoop them up before they're all gone!!  Gotta make room for the new stuff coming down the line!  ALSO every order will receive a COUPON tucked inside with a code for a discount on your next order.....just 'cause I loves my customers!!!  ;)

Challenge 238 - Sketchy Time! And I'm the Hostess!

Good morning, krafty friends!!  It's time for another fun challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and guess what?!  I'm the hostess this week and my challenge is a SKETCH!

I just love sketch challenges because it really takes a lot of the guess work out of creating.  Sometimes the hardest part is designing a new layout for your card, so sketches give you that jumping off point!

My card features the mermaid and whale image from the new Under the Sea 2! stamp set!!  I used the new Enchanted Garden 6x6 paper pad from Bo Bunny because I just loved the colours and I think they go really well with the watery theme!  I coloured up the image using coordinating Copic markers and used several Spellbinder dies to create the main layer.  The embellishments include a double bow using some wrinkled seam binding ribbon, a gorgeous frosted finishes embellishment from SU in the middle of the bow, a spray of pearls and some glittery flowers!  The final touch is the Need a Hug? sentiment from the Under the Sea 2! stamp set!

There are TWO ways to enter our challenges.....on the posts in the KKStamps Blog and also in the photo folders in our Krafty Friends facebook group!!  We have two challenges every week....the Saturday one (this one) and a weekly Anything Goes challenge on Wednesdays!  Please join us for chances to WIN gift cards to the shop!

Also don't forget that we have a DOZEN of our fabulous stamp sets on SALE 25-50% OFF this weekend in our Frugal Friday Specials!!  Scoop up some new stamps, paper pads, EZmount and get kraftin'!!
