Time for a Spooky Krafty Komeback - and a Challenge!

Hello all! What an exciting day it is at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!
Today we are bringing back a super cute Halloween stamp set
by artist Cheryl Grant that was first introduced in 2013 and has
not been available for several years.  I was one of the lucky ones
to have purchased this in the original rubber form but now
it's available in the awesome clear photopolymer stamp version! 

Not only is this stamp set back in the shop there is also a 
special promotion going on this weekend called
MYSTERY MADNESS.  Everyone who participates in this 
will WIN A PRIZE! There are lots of good ones to win. 
One lucky winner will win their entire order for FREE.
To participate you must first purchase the  
YOU'RE A SCREAM stamp set (separately
or as part of an order - such as your FRUGAL FRIDAY purchase).  
Once you've placed your order 
head on over to the KKS Krafty Friends Facebook Group
to find this graphic and claim a number.  Everyone who has 
a number will be a WINNER.  But be quick because
there are only 30 spots available!!!
Remember everyone with a number is a winner.  

Are you ready to see it???  It's called YOU'RE A SCREAM! 
I cannot express how very happy I am that this set is back!

I made two cards to share with you today.  Here's the first
using Lucas the Mummy and the new Gorgeous Gauze stencil
(and some of the new Halloween dots).  I colored him with 
prisma color pencils on kraft paper.  Inks used are the
NEW Tempting Tangerine and Purple Pansy hybrid inks 

My second card features Lexi the Spider.
That big ol' purple spider web around her is 
made with foil and the Creepy Cobweb stencil.
This is my first attempt at using foil with the 
Duo Transfer gel (no heat required).  I learned a couple
things in the process but am happy with how it turned out. 
I also used the new Halloween dots and Tempting Tangerine ink.

We've put together a fun krafty hop for you 
featuring this Komeback set and  promotion. 
There's also a new challenge this week and the 
theme is ANYTHING GOES!  Playing along in 
our challenges gives you a chance at the monthly
$25 gift voucher to spend in the KKS Shop! 
Come play along and show us how you're using 
your KKS goodies!  We love to be inspired by you too!
Thanks for stopping in to visit! Enjoy the rest of the 
inspiration from the krafty krew below! Hugs! D

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #545 - PURPLE!

Happy happy weekend! I hope it's a good one for you.
It's time for another weekly theme challenge at

Use a lot or a little - just make sure we can 
see some of the color purple on your creation. 

I LOVE the color purple but for some reason 
it's not the first color I reach for.  
As I started thinking of ideas all of a 
sudden lots and lots of them flooded my brain.
So....I might be using purple more often!

Have you seen the NEW Gorgeous Gauze stencil?
I am a little bit obsessed with this stencil and used
it for the background on my card.
That lovely gal is from the stamp sets Trendy Tees
and Trendy Tees Icons ("BFF"). 
This card is going to my BFF named Karen
(who by the way loves Purple).
The Purple Petunia KKS hybrid ink worked 
perfectly for the tone on tone look. 
 I added some of my favorite embellishments -
the Krafty Dots.  I'd love to tell you which ones
I used but I have so many of them and I lost track
of labeling them (oops). can find 
lots of of them in the KKS Shop while you are
shopping the Frugal Friday Specials - wink wink!

Please come play along with our  PURPLE
challenge this week.  We love to see what you make with 
the KKS goodies you purchase. And don't forget
that your creations often inspire us too!! 
Every month Kimmie selects a random winner 
from all the weekly challenges (a $25 gift code to use
in the KKS Shop).  If you wanna win you gotta play! 

Thanks for stopping in to visit! Hugs! D

 Hello crafty peeps! Today is DAY ONE of 

the sneak peeks previews for the August NEW RELEASE


I'm especially excited about today's stamp set because I've been 
wanting a Thanksgiving themed set with pilgrams and a turkey. 
I finally got my wish!! Whoo Hoo! 

Artist Neda Sadreddin has outdone herself with this one! 
Take a look for yourself at "IT'S TURKEY DAY!"
Crazy CUTE - right??!

I couldn't decide which image to use so all of them had
to be on my card LOL. 

You will get to see LOTS more awesome samples if you
go visit the links of the other Krafty DT down below. 
Make sure to leave a comment at each stop because
we do keep track of that and one lucky person will be randomly 
selected to win some krafty cash to spend in the KKS Shop!

August Skrappy Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday! 
Can you believe it's August already?!
Truthfully I'm kind of wondering how the heck
that happened so fast LOL! But I'm not complaining
really as I love the hot days of August and I look
forward to fall being right around the corner. 
Oh but I digress because what I really wanted to share 
with you is that we have a new challenge for you at 

At the start of each month it's the SKRAPPY CHALLENGE.

What's this you might ask?'s an opportunity for you to 
create and share with us a project that 
is really anything but a card.  
You can make and share a 3D project such as a 
tag, bookmark, box, ornament, or maybe some
ATCs or a scrapbook or planner spread.  
We love to see you use your Kraftin' Kimmie goodies and 
stretch your creative muscles to inspire us and others!
If we get at least 5 people to participate in the challenge this
month there will be a $10 prize to the Krafty Shop offered to
one lucky random winners. You have until August 31st to enter.

I am one of those people that still prefers real books over 
electronic versions.  Something about the weight of the 
book in my hands, the sound of the pages turning and the smell. 
To me that's just heavenly!  And I also hate to turn the corners of
my pages to mark my place and love to use bookmarks! 
So I collect those (kind of like I collect coffee mugs). 
I had this idea to make a book wrap/sleeve with a removable 
bookmark as a fun way to gift or share a book.  

The main image is from GIRL POWER.  The sentiments
scattered around the sleeve are from several other stamp sets
that feature readers, reading or bookworms.  

If you would like to get some more inspiration just pop
on down to the links and go visit some more of the krafty
krew.  We love when you visit us and let us know if you like
our creations!  So say hi while you're visiting!  
And then go get krafty and share w/us in the blog
or in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group.
