Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps July New Release Sneak Peeks Day 1- Trendy Tees & Icons!

It's time! It's TIME! The July Krafty Peeks begin today and you're not going to believe the incredible goodies we have in store for you this month at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! We've got an extra large helping of stamps, stencils, ink and dots for you so get ready to have your socks knocked off!!! Be warned! Today is Day One of our July Krafty Peeks and we are kicking things off with a BANG!


First up we have TWO new amazing stamp sets that work so well individually AND in combination with one another! They are from artist Neda Sadreddin and they're called... TRENDY TEES and TRENDY TEES ICONS! Check out the fabulous family of images in the first set with a selection of words to be combined to make sentiments or to add to their shirts!


Then take a look at the second set of amazing icons and words so that you can customize your images any way you like!  WHAT FUN!!!  The possibilities are endless!


As you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs today you will see the TRENDY TEES & TRENDY TEES ICONS stamp sets in action in combination with our all of our other awesome new JULY Kraftin' Kimmie products! I couldn't help but use these adorable stamps in my planner!! The tiny images are just perfect for adding fun decorations to your planners and calendars... because hey, planning should be fun!


I first stamped all these cute images on matte sticker paper with Wicked Black Ink and then coloured them in with Copic Markers. The sticker paper worked wonderfully to colour them on! I used our brand new FRESH FIELDS ink to colour in the mom stamp's Tshirt by creating a mask. Then I layered the fabulous PATTERN PARADE stencil over top to create a tone on tone polka dot T - so cute!!


I diecut some shapes from more sticker paper and used the awesome pattern stencil again to add background colours in Krafty Kolours Inks. I fussy cut out the images and then started layering on my fun stickers!! I used the cross-stitch stencil and the tiny dotted line on my pages - these will be a go-to for cards and scrapbooking too!


I used some coloured pens to write in some events and to do lists, with more room for journaling as the days progress. I stamped some more words on various patterned stickers and added some fun Simple Stories stickers from my stash. I'm definitely inspired to get some projects and chores finished up now - because we all know checking off a list is almost as fun as making it 😉 By the way, if you love journaling and planners - you might want to check out the Krafty Journaling Fun Group!


You will also spot our newest addition to the Krafty Kolours Hybrid Ink rainbow!  It's a gorgeous rich green named FRESH FIELDS! As always it will be available in full sized ink pads, mini cubes and ink refills!


We've got TWO brand new Krafty Stencils for this month's release to help accessorize your creations! They are called PATTERN PARADE & SHE SELLS SEASHELLS! The fabulous patterns on the first stencil are just the right size to add some inky designs to your Trendy Tees!!  (And the second stencil might give you a clue as to some other stamp sets we might be sharing later this week!)


And of course, we are adding the perfect new coordinating Krafty Dots for this release! The package includes enamel dots in varying sizes in 6 different colours! These ones are called SUMMER DOTS!


You'll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of July Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends facebook group on Saturday, July 11th at 2 pm EST! For now, hop around and check out some incredible designs from our Krafty Team!!  Be sure to leave some love on EACH stop on the hop because Kraftin' Kimmie is going to be giving away some krafty $$ to the shop!!  PLUS our designers are AMAZING and you should tell them so!  ;) Come on back tomorrow for more SUMMERTIME krafty goodness!

Hello! I'm back today with an adorable Mermaid Digital Stamp from the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop that I'm featuring on the Gerda Steiner Designs Blog! I just love her purple hair - if I was a mermaid I'd definitely want purple hair!! I was really excited to coordinate her with this fun Echo Park 6x6 Paper Pad called Mermaid Dreams. I used my Copics and coloured her up to match! A pretty scalloped edge circle die and hello word diecut from Studio Katia finished off the front of this 4 1/4" square card.

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Saturday Challenge #536 - Use A Stencil!

Good Morning and welcome to another fabulous and fun Saturday Challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Are you ready for another fun and krafty challenge to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing? We've got some fabulous ideas for you and can't wait to see what you create! This week our challenge for you is .... USE A STENCIL! I decided to use a stencil in a bit of a different way for this project! I actually embossed the fabulous Summer Sunbeams Stencil first - and if you've never done this -- you gotta try it! Using an embossing mat and my Cricut Cuttlebug, which is almost ancient now ;) I ran it through with a piece of white cardstock and it actually embosses the texture of the stencil into the paper. Then, I used our new Summer Sunshine Ink to add a soft yellow shine fading out toward the edges. This is a fun way to add even more detail and texture to your project. **If you missed the Live Video where I demo'd all kinds of different ways to use this stencil be sure to check it out HERE! And here's another video with 10 more ways to use stencils!


I stamped a diecut circle with a fun birthday sentiment from the Party Time Sentiment Stamp with Sparkling Sapphire Ink and popped it up in the center of the sunshine. I coloured up one of the adorable fairies from the Fairy Folk Stamp Set and added some pretty Krafty Dots to the card!


Inside, I stamped a sweet butterfly and a sentiment from the Fairy Folk Set using Sparkling Sapphire and Magical Midnight Inks and added a little more of the paper I used on the front. 


Each and every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and you are welcome to enter as many times as you like. These must be new creations and you are welcome to use any stamp however using Kraftin' Kimmie stamp and products will earn you double entries!

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps June New Release Hop!

Woot!  Woot! Today we are celebrating all the wonderful new summertime things in our JUNE Release that are NOW AVAILABLE in the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop! All THREE of our new stamp sets along with two new stencils, our stunning new hybrid ink colour, Sandy Shores and sweet new krafty dots were released yesterday, and we're excited to share everything with you in a fabulous blog hop! I decided to use a little of almost everything in my project for today - first doing some paper piecing with the cute submarine from UNDERWATER FUN! I thought if I had a sub I'd definitely choose a colourful one! and I created a scene using a slimline die - tucking in the adorable Lucas in his scuba gear.


I used the KRAFTY SCENERY 3 waves to add subtle texture to the watercolour paper with Lovely Lagoon Ink, stamping one of the awesome sentiments on top! I used the same stencil and the New SANDY SHORES to stencil a sandy bottom too. 


I took the cute crab from WHAT'S THE SCOOP?! and added him to the bottom of the card, and I added bubbles and seashells from TURTLEY AWESOME! A bit of Glossy Accents gave the crab's cute eyes and the bubbles some dimension, and the New SEASHORE DOTS! finish this fun card off!


So let's check everything out in action as we hop around the Krafty Design Team's blogs today!  Grab a nice hot (or cold) beverage, sit back and relax while we take you on this krafty tour! First up is fabulous girly set by artist Neda Sadreddin called WHAT'S THE SCOOP?!


Next is a fun set from artist Cheryl Grant featuring our fave kiddos called UNDERWATER FUN!


Lastly is an ADORABLY sweet stamp set from artist Becky Pearce called TURTLEY AWESOME!


Available now is our stunning new Krafty Kolours hybrid ink colour in the large ink pad, the mini cube and ink refill called ...SANDY SHORES!


We have two new stencils that coordinate perfectly with our lovely new stamp sets and they are....
NAUTICAL NETTING and KRAFTY SCENERY 3!


And lastly we have the perfect finishing touch for your summertime creations with our new Krafty Dots called... SEASHORE DOTS!


All these new items are available individually however if you HAVE to have it all, we've got our JUNE GIMME KIMMIES KIT which contains everything AND at a discount!  But remember this is for a limited time and only while supplies last! Now head on out on today's celebration blog hop and check out all the new products in action as the Krafty Team shares their incredible creations!  Then jump on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps SHOP and grab some goodies for yourself!

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps June New Release Sneak Peeks - Day 3 -Turtley Awesome!

It's our FINAL day of June Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! Are you READY for more summer FUN?! Everything you've seen us share this week will be released this afternoon (Saturday) after our LIVE online party! All the new goodies will be available at 3pm EST!


We are closing out the festivities with a brand new adorable stamp set from artist Becky Pearce called.... TURTLEY AWESOME! OH my gosh, how cute are these TURTLES!?!  I ask you?  These little sweeties are having fun at the beach!  There are four main turtles, little accessory stamps for all the seaside fun plus a cute little ducky pal!  And don't forget all the incredible coordinating sentiments!


For today's project I couldn't choose just one of these cuties, so I decided to use 3 of them, sitting on the beach having a blast!! I chose a slimline card design and cut out a circle from a piece of cardstock to create a mask to use with the New Nautical Netting Stencil. I also used one of the circles from the So Many Circles Stencil for the area under the sweet little birdie! This technique creates a two in one stencil effect - great for spotlighting different areas. I used the New Sandy Shores Ink along with Salty Sea Ink for a beachy feel.


The New Krafty Scenery 3 Stencil was perfect to add more summertime elements with the bright sunshine, umbrella and waves using various Krafty Kolours Inks. I used Copic Markers to colour in these sweet turtles and added some white gel pen highlights for detail.


I stamped one of the cute sentiments along the bottom with Wicked Black Ink to wish one of my besties a very special birthday 😉🎂 Lastly, I added in a few of the New Seashore Dots with those fun seashell and starfish accessories! 


Here's a look at the Video where you can see all these new goodies closeup!! 


Of course, today is also Challenge Day and as always, during release week the theme is Anything Goes!  So create a card, scrapbook page, altered item.....with a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp!  Use any sketch, design, colour scheme you want!

I coloured up Lucas and his adorable puppy with Copic Markers and added some gel pen highlights.
