Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps January Release - Day 1


Welcome to the FIRST release of this brand new year at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

This is Day ONE of the January Krafty Peeks and I am over the moon excited to share everything with you! We've got new stamp sets, new stencils, new ink, a BRAND NEW PRODUCT and we're thrilled to be introducing you to our NEW ARTIST!

The first set for January that we are sharing with you is called YOU ARE SUPER and is from our brand new artist, Neda Sadreddin!

We all have women and girls in our lives who are superheros to us and to others! Just by being themselves as a Mom, a Grandma, a Friend...and we need to tell them more often how AWESOME we think they are! So here comes the perfect stamp set! It features a main full sized image plus two portrait sized images in different super cute poses! You can add a mask and even different letters to her chest to make it personal for the recipient! There are several sentiments and options to create your own! I think you'll agree this is a fabulous first set from Neda!


I coloured up this adorable image with Copic markers and added a few highlights using a white coloured pencil.
To create the backgrounds, I ink blended Black Soot Distress Oxide ink and added texture using the Beautiful Burlap stencil from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. For the red background, I used Krafty Kolours Pretty In Pink and Raspberry Rose. To finish off the backgrounds, I used some Perfect Pearls mixed with water to get the shimmery water droplet effect.  
To finish off my card, I used the Shooting Star Label die and a few of the new Krafty Dots.

You'll get to see ALL of our new goodies in action over the next few days of January Krafty Peeks and they'll all be released at our LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday, January 12 at 2pm EST in the Krafty Friends group!


For now, hop around and check out some samples from our incredible Krafty Team! You might spot some other new goodies while you're hopping around....and I'll tell you more about them tomorrow!! So come on back!
Happy hoppin'!

Stamp AnnieThing - "Use a Die" Challenge

Hi Friends!!
Today I am participating in the Stamp AnnieThing theme week challenge. This weeks theme is "Anything Goes Using A Die"


I absolutely love clean and simple cards and this year I decided to challenge myself to create more CAS cards. 
To begin, I started by ink blending Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks using the Squiggle Wiggle stencil from Stamp AnnieThing 
I just had to use the new Retro Shape Shaker Die that was release this past week and I love how it accents the stencilled background.  The Hugs die cut was done in gold glitter card stock. 
To finish off my card, I added some gold thread and some dewdrop embellishments.
I hope you you liked my card creation for today and I look forward to seeing what you create for this challenge!


Until Next Time - Stephen
