Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges - #500 "Use 1 or More Stencils"

Hello friends and happy weekend.
we are celebrating 10 wonderful years and
the 500th Challenge!!! What an amazing milestone!

This week our hostess for Challenge #500 is Krafty Gal Anna.
She is challenging us to  Use 1 or More Stencils on our creations.
And guess what??? Kimmie is offering a special prize to 
one lucky winner from this next week's entries...
5 - yes FIVE - stencils of the winners choice!

Since Kimmie started carrying stencils in the krafty shop
I've hardly used my patterned papers.  The stencils are so fun
to use and they work so beautifully with the KKS hybrid inks.
They also work great for dry embossing.
If you haven't checked them out you should!

My DT card today uses 3 of the stencils for the background
and one of the not so spooky monsters from
MONSTER MASH with a sentiment from PUMPKIN KISSES
and added couple of the fun enamel SPOOKY DOTS.

This is one of the funnest cards I've made in a while.
The first color I used on the background was 
GOBLIN GREEN (leaving some white space around the bottom
and outer edge.  Then I added some SPARKLING SAPPHIRE
in the white areas I had left.  For the stenciled layers, I first 
sponged some GRANITE GREY over the top of the 
Creepy Cobweb stencil.  Second layer was to add some bats
through the Bats & Moons stencil. The sentiment was 
added in Wicked Black (same as the bats) and then I
sponged with PURPLE PANSY ink through the 
Lots o' Dots stencil.  Isn't it fun? I love how the green
glows through the web! Spooky Cool!

Thanks for visiting me today! I hope you find some time
in your weekend to get krafty and join the challenge. 
Your entry needs to be a new creation and you can use
any type stamp product. BUT...  We love to see what you make

from the super cute Hip Hippo-Ray! stamp set (stamped

Holiday Wishes - Day TWO of the September peeks for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello friends, DAY TWO of the September 2019
sneak peeks  for KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS is here!
Image may contain: text and food
Image may contain: text

Seriously what an amazing month of new releases
this is! Today there are two new stamp sets to show you
designed by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen.
There's HOLIDAY WISHES - a fabulous set
of larger Christmas sentiments
No photo description available.

and...CHRISTMAS SEALS - a fun set of
circular sentiments and designs.
No photo description available.

My card today features one of the sentiments from
HOLIDAY WISHES with a clean and simply design.
The NEW Berry Bliss hybrid ink is such a beautiful
rich color for fall and Christmas. I sponged some of
it along with Goblin Green through the HOLY Stencil
to create a fun and festive background.

Let me tell ya' if you aren't playing with some of
the KKS stencils you are missing out on a whole lot
of krafty fun!  So quick, easy and fun to create your
own backgrounds and elements!  You'll start to feel
guilty about all that patterned paper you have in your 
stash that is being clearly ignored (or maybe that's just me - LOL)!

The HOLIDAY WISHES stamp set is just awesome!
 These sentiments work wonderfully for sentiment only cards
as well as on the inside of cards - tags and scrapbook pages too.  

Don't forget about the LIVE ONLINE RELEASE Party
in the Kraftin' Kimmie  Stamps Friends Facebook Group.
The fun starts at 2pm EST on Saturday!
ALL the new products from this month will 
be released in the KKS Shop right after the Party!

We have more inspiration in store for you tomorrow!
Thanks for popping in today! Hugs! D
