The Sea is Calling Me

Welcome back for another fun challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie StampsThis week our hostess is Becky and her challenge is Ships Ahoy/Water Themed, so create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp that fits this theme and play along! Have some krafty fun and join us this week for your chance to win a $10 gift card to the Shop!

I love mermaids, so I used Becky's Water Themed challenge as an opportunity to pull out one of my favourites from the Sea Jewels set. (the set includes three mermaids and several coordinating sentiments) I used some fabulous vintage papers from a Graphic 45 paper pad, which unfortunately is no longer in stock. However, make sure to click HERE to see the paper pads currently in stock at the KKS store! I really loved the paper with the lighthouse, seashore and text...I have a thing for text on patterned paper. This paper originally included a picture of a women and two children, but I trimmed it down to spotlight the portion I wanted as a backdrop for the mermaid. I also trimmed some of the seashells and starfish from the teal patterned paper to use as a frame around the focal layer. The flourish is an MFT die and I added some pearls. All paper edges were sponges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I stamped the mermaid from Sea Jewels in Memento Desert Sand and coloured her with Copics. 


We've got a dozen of our fave stamp sets on SALE this weekend in our FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS at 25-50% OFF so be sure to check them out! We've also just received some NEW 6x6 paper pads by Doodlebug, MME, Simple Stories and more!! Happy shoppin'!

Pop on over the KKS Blog to check out the wonderful creations by our Krafty Girls and special Krafty Guests featuring this week’s challenge. We hope you play along for your chance to win!!

Thanks for visiting! :)

Vampire Queen...Release Day At Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Welcome to August Release day at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS and we’re celebrating with a krafty hop!! 



Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of spooky new stamps from all our artists for our August release. We’ve got an adorable new fall kids set from Cheryl called HEY THERE, PUNKIN'! There's a new set of fabulous trick or treaters from Thais called CANDY CORN KISSES! And of course, we are SO excited to share two new wicked stamp sets from Annie called....DRAGON QUEEN and VAMPIRE QUEEN!

I mentioned the other day when I posted a card featuring Dragon Queen that she was one of my new favourite images. I've used my other new favourite image on today's card...this is Vampire Queen! Isn't she fabulous?! I love every detail about her, from that billowing goth dress, to the skulls around her waist, to that fabulous hair. I had SO much fun colouring this stamp!! I used some older Halloween paper from last year...of course it had to have a vintage feel, as that's my favourite style. ;) I used several dies on this card: Spellbinders Parisian Accents for the middle border, an MFT die for the flourish and Ornate Hinges from Dies by SCACD for the embellishments on the left hand side of the card. All paper edges were distressed and sponged with black ink. I added some rhinestones and a metal key as finishing touches.



Here's the Vampire Queen set:
