Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps July Stamp Of The Month - Once Upon A Time!

We are so excited to share our newest

Stamp Of The Month - Once Upon A Time! 


You might recognize some familiar characters from Sabrina's artwork!


This sweet set features a sweet fairy and her mouse friend reading what is sure to be an amazing fairytale adventure!! 


It will be FREE with a $75 or more purchase at the
 Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop (before taxes and shipping)
during the month of July!!
*while supplies last

and as an extra special bonus, there will be a 
FREE GIFT
 in December if you collect all our Stamp Of The Month sets this year! 



I created an easel card with a stencilled background using one of my fav stencils, Floral Fantasy, and Ocean Opulence Ink. It gave the blue cardstock a tone on tone effect in the background.


I added a rainbow and sunshine diecut to the cardbase and popped up the sweet Once Upon A Time image, coloured with Nuvo Alcohol Markers. There are so many sayings that would work with this set - anything magical or book related of course! I settled on a lovely sentiment from the Fairy Folk Stamp Set and used some Nuvo Glitter Drops to finish it off!


We hope you're as excited as we are about the 
July Stamp Of The Month - Once Upon A Time!

PS. You can still find some of our 2021 Stamp Of The Month sets in the Shop! 

Happy Krafting!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps June Krafty Peeks Day FOUR! You’ve Been Framed! Plus A Challenge!

Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the June Release 

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!



We are so excited to share a wonderful set

by artist

Michelle Houghton called...

YOU'VE BEEN FRAMED!


This awesome set is of course the perfect compliment to Picture Perfect, which you saw yesterday! There are so many possibilities and fabulous sentiments included!! 


This set is so awesome! I can just imagine so many ways I'm going to use it! I started off by white heat embossing the Smile sentiment using the set we peeked yesterday - Picture Perfect. I then added Krafty Kolours inks sponged over the background, including the New Flirty Flamingo Ink! The white embossed word created a subtle resist for a fun background. 


I then stamped the film strip across my background and layered on the film strip from the Add-On Bundle. I love the vintage look of this strip! I used the Carnival Critters Set to stamp an accessory image stamp around the background, the cute mouse inside the polaroid frame from You've Been Framed, and stars around the little mouse.


I used the fabulous Sending Smiles sentiment inside the frame and added a chipboard word bubble from the Add-On Bundle. A few pretty gems and a smile sticker finish it off!

As you hop around the design team's blogs today you'll be able to check out YOU'VE BEEN FRAMED! in action in combination with a lot of our other new June Kraftin' Kimmie products!

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps June Krafty Peeks... Day THREE! Picture Perfect!

  Today is our third day of Krafty Peeks for the June Release

 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Today we are 'peeking' a super awesome set 

from artist Michelle Houghton
 and it's called.....

PICTURE PERFECT!

This amazing set of vintage style cameras are perfect for so many occasions! The sentiments included are spot on!


I chose to do an ombre background with the New Bouncing Balloons stencil using the New Flirty Flamingo Ink, Pretty In Pink Ink and Pink Pizzazz! 


I layered on some fun paper and the Film Strip and Chipboard from the Add-On Bundle, colouring the Chipboard with Nuvo Glitter Markers. 


I watercoloured a fabulous image from Picture Perfect and added Nuvo Crystal Glaze and a little glitter on top to the flash and lens and popped it up. I love the handwritten font on this sentiment included! 


I used a Photoplay Popup card that has an element inside that 'pops up' when you open the card - a perfect place to add another camera and sentiment!

Check out PICTURE PERFECT! in so many creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs! You'll also see the new stencils, Add-Ons and hybrid ink along the way!  Be sure to leave some love at each stop on the hop because there will be a giveaway for some krafty $$ to the shop!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps June Krafty Peeks... Day TWO! Funtastic Fair!

 Welcome back to Day TWO of our June Krafty Peeks!

Are you excited about what you've seen so far!?  Are you ready for more?

I hope your answer was yes because we've got more fabulous fun for you today!

The stamp set we are 'peeking' for you today is from 

artist Sabrina van Vlotten
 and it's called.....

FUNTASTIC FAIR!


This absolutely amazing set perfectly coordinates with the amusement park theme and the adorable CARNIVAL CRITTERS set from yesterday's peek!


I'm sharing a slimline card today using the awesome images from Funtastic Fair along with yesterday's stamp set, Carnival Critters! 


I used the wonderful Fancy Fireworks Stencil with Lunar Pastes to create a fun filled sky, full of bright shimmery fireworks. This stencil layers beautifully, and then in combination with complimentary stamps from the Carnival Critters set, you get an amazing effect!


I watercoloured the images with both Nuvo watercoloured pencils and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The fantastic chipboard from the Add-On Bundle works so well with these sets too! I painted the 'Cool' chipboard white and then added on blue glitter marker to the top! You'll also see one of the metallic balloon brads from the Add-On set! This fair scene is simply amazing!


I finished off the inside of the card with the ferris wheel stamp and the sentiment included in the Funtastic Fair set, stamped with our New Flirty Flamingo Ink!


 Check out FUNTASTIC FAIR! in so many awesome creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs!  You'll also see the new stencils, Add-On bundle and hybrid ink along the way!
