April/May Release peeks - Day One! Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps

 Who's ready for some brand new Krafty Goodies?

It's time to bring you NEW stamp sets and layering stencils
from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

In case you haven't heard, we are moving to release every other month but the same number of wonderful products!

So we will be sharing FOUR new stamp sets and TWO new sets of layering stencils over the course of this week!


Today we are excited to kick things off with a super SWEET stamp set from artist Sabrina van Vloten called FRUITY FAVOURITES!!  You may remember her design called Fall Favourites from last autumn!  You loved it so much that we expanded on this yummy theme!


ALSO we have a coordinating set of layering stencils which is super FRESH!

It's called FRESH FRUIT!



What fun these two new products are - right?!!! 

My card today features the new stencil - but I chose to only color up certain elements. Take a peek… 


I used Lucious Lemon and Summer Sunshine inks for the lemons on the background. I also inked the edges of the papers with the Luscious Lemon ink. I stamped an extra lemon slice and added it with dimension to the bottom of the glass. After coloring with copics, I added some super fine glitter elements to the bugs wings and the bubbles in the drink. 

Super sweet and so much fun. 

Now pop on out by clicking one of the links below for the Krafty Team to find more inspiration for today’s peeks! 

As you head out on today's Krafty Hop you'll get to enjoy lots of gorgeous creations from our Krafty Team featuring FRUITY FAVOURITES and FRESH FRUIT in combination with some of our other incredible products such as our Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks!

Skrappy Challenge -April 2024. Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Good morning krafty friends! 

It's APRIL (can you believe that?), 
and that means it's time for a brand new
SKRAPPY CHALLENGE

with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


 The theme of course is ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

For this challenge you can make anything that strikes your fancy....except a card!
So design a new scrapbook page, bookmark, tag, altered item, planner page, art journal, ATC cards...whatever you like!

Just make sure to include some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps products and make sure it's a new creation!  

My creation this month is a super-sized
birthday tag that I made for one of my
staff.  I added a pocket on the backside 
of the tag so that I could tuck a coffee 
card into it for him. 
To make this tag, I started by sponging
Magical Midnight ink all over it 
(front and back).  Then I grabbed 
a panel of Vicki Boutin's Foundations
white cardstock and spritzed it with
some Distress Oxide ink sprays
(Stormy Sky and Aged Mahogany).
After the panel dried I used the 
with some Lunar paster in 
Game Over. The final technique 
was to rub the Magical Midnight ink
all around the edges again and glue 
it to the tag base.
I was surprised that the lunar paste 
absorbed the ink and lost it's shine.
At first I was disappointed, but after 
I walked away from it for a while and
came back, I decided that it's perfectly
distressed and it has a very masculine
feel to it (something that is typically quite
difficult for me to achieve).  The fun sentiment is from the Birthday Bash Sentiments! stamp set. 
I think that it's kind of perfect 
for the person I made it for. 



*NEW - Our Challenges are now combined with the 
Saturday Challenge and the Christmas Challenge In the Krafty Friends FB group! So feel free to enter any or all of these - the monthly prize is a $20 voucher to the Krafty shop!!!  Woohoo!
