Hello again! Happy weekend!
I'm happy that you're back to visit me today
because it's the final day of the Sneak Peeks
for the July 2020 Release at 

And a new weekly challenge starts today too.
I'll bet you can guess the theme because it's the
same every month during release week...
Challenge #539  is ANYTHING GOES!

Haven't you just LOVED each of these new stamp sets
and coordinating stencils, inks and dots?
Do you have a favorite yet? 
If not this one just might be it!!!
Our final stamp set of the July release 
is by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen 
and it's called LONG IN THE TOOTH!

 OH MY GOSH...isn't this awesome?! 
Just look at how CUTE they are and 
the fun sentiments and fonts! And
let's not forget about that leggy little bird. 

Before I show you my card today, I wanted to 
happening today in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group.

The FUN starts at 2pm EST - so hope you can be there.
AND...pretty quickly after the release party ALL
the new goodies will be loaded in the KKS shop 
and ready to jump into your shopping carts! 

Okay so are you ready to see what I've made?! 
Here it is...
This card features the SHE SELLS SEASHELLS stencil,
the PATTERN PARADE stencil, the new FRESH FIELDS
hybrid ink and the new SUMMER DOTS.  
My layout was inspired by the current

  After using the stencil the first time with the 
FRESH FIELDS ink, I then very very lightly spread some
Nuevo glitter paste through it again over the top of what I had
already inked.  The original green still shows through but now 
there is a lighter green shimmer on top of it. It's really cool in real life! 
Wish you could see that better!  I was tickled with how it turned out.  
Here's a couple more photos that show the details a bit better

So don't forget about the ANYTHING GOES challenge.
We love to see your creations in our gallery and
in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group too. 
Each time you enter a new creation you have a chance
to win the monthly prize of a $25 gift voucher to the KKS Store.  
When you use a KKS stamp, or other  KKS product 
(stencil, dots, inks) you double your
entries that week.  Wanna WIN - then come play!

I hope you've been leaving us comments as you visit 
our blogs because one lucky commenter will WIN

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #536 - USE A STENCIL

Hello to you and happy weekend!
Today we are kicking off another weekly 
challenge theme at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. 

 Challenge #536 from krafty gal Melany is

There are so many awesome stencils 
available from KKS that it was difficult for me 
to make up my mind on which one I wanted to use.

But then inspiration struck and I knew that the
TRIPPY TRIANGLES stencil would be perfect with 
this adorable ice cream cone stamp from the 
 newly released WHAT'S THE SCOOP? clear stamp set.
The background panel was first inked with a combo
Then I lifted the stencil and went over the whole
panel again with the new Sandy Shores ink and a 
blending brush.  Makes me think of a waffle cone - YUM!

Now it's your turn to jump into the challenge this week.
Pull out your stencils and have fun making a
new creation to share with us!  You have all week to 
participate and can enter as many times as you like
(just make sure it's a new creation each time),  It's not
a requirement that you use KKS items but we love when
you do and you get double the chances to win the
monthly prize of a $40 gift certificate to the KKS Shop! 

Wanna WIN - then you gotta PLAY (big smiley face)!
Thanks for stopping by to visit me today.  
There's some links below to more of our krafty DT
who have Stenciled Creations to share with you.  Enjoy!!

June Release Blog Hop Celebration - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello friends! Today is the day we celebrate
the fantastic products just released by 
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Image may contain: text

Have you been following along with us as
we've been sharing each day?  Do you have a 
favorite from the release - or do you 
LOVE IT ALL like me??!

All the new products are now available in the store 
 and ready to jump into your shopping cart! 
You can purchase them individually or ALL of them
at once as part of a specially priced GIMMIE KIMMIE KIT
(but these go fast and are only available for a limited time). 

As a quick recap for you the NEW stamp sets are
WHAT'S THE SCOOP! by artist Neda Sadreddin

UNDERWATER FUN! by artist Cheryl Grant

& TURTLEY AWESOME! by artist Becky Pearce

There are also TWO new stencils -
a beautiful brown hybrid ink - Sandy Shores
and more enamel dots - Seashore Dots!

My card for the hop features What's the Scoop!

I stamped my two images with the Sandy Shores ink
and then colored them with copic markers.  
As a last touch I covered the tubes and sunglasses
in glossy accents.  Here's a close up of it

And here's one more close up so you can see the 
dimension around the edge of the card for the 
pool (which I inked with Granite Grey).
For the pool bottom I used Salty Sea, Granite Grey
and Mermaid Melody hybrid inks through the
stencil.  I started with the lightest color and kept
adding the other colors until I had the effect I wanted. 
The sentiment is stamped on the diving board.

So I hope that you have a refreshing or rejuvenating 
beverage and maybe a snack with you as you 
settle in and hop around to the blogs of the rest
of the Kraft DT.  They have LOTS of awesome
creations made from this release to share with you. 
Enjoy the day peeps! Happy hopping and shopping!
