Challenge #555 and a Krafty Komeback - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Hello friends! Happy Halloween and last day of October 2020!
It will definitely be a different Halloween here thanks to COVID.
But...I'm not going to focus on that!  Instead I'm going to focus
on the FUN News that there is another Krafty Komeback happening
this weekend and I'm super excited about it!!

Before I get to that though - I also want to tell you about 
the new weekly challenge theme that is starting today too.

Challenge #555 theme is CUTE or SCARY! 
I'm not a Scary Halloween type person at all but 
I do love me some CUTE HALLOWEEN images/decorations.
My card features the TOO CUTE TO SPOOK! stamp
set and Ghoulish Ghosts stencil. Take a look

I used the KKS hybrid ink in Purple Petunia with the stencil. 

AND NOW!!!!! Here's a look at the KRAFTY KOMEBACK
stamp set called BELIEVE IN YOUR ELF!  
This particular stamp set made it's debut in 2012
in the rubber format.  It's been in the KKS retired 
vault for the past few years but now IT'S BAAACK
and in the fabulous photopolymer clear stamp version.

I love the look on the face of these elves.
Pure Joy and Pure confusion hahaha. 
This awesome Christmas stamp set will be in 
the KKS Shop for purchase this morning at 10AM EST!
You are gonna want this one - sooo much fun to color!  

Here's my card to share with you

This is literally how I feel every year as I untangle
the lights from the tree LOL!  
Hope you enjoyed my card - you can hop on down to 
the links below and see more inspiration from 
the krafty krew using this stamp set.

Did I mention it's in the KKS Shop now 
and the Frugal Friday Specials are also loaded

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Challenge # Make Your Own Background

Hello lovely friends and followers!
It's time for another weekly theme challenge

The theme for Challenge #554 is "Make Your Own Background"
My daughter in law and I played with some alcohol inks
for the first time and made several beautiful backgrounds.
My card features one of them as well as the Solid Holiday

 The solid stamps work so great for picking up the 
alcohol inks off the panel and then stamping on 
a piece of white cardstock.  I used Yupo shiny
paper for the background.  LOVE how it turned out.

I hope you're having a great weekend.
We started getting snow (lots of it) last night
and it's still going.  A great excuse to stay inside
and get crafty I think!   I'm going to be working on
another special release coming up at the end of 
the month for Kraftin' Kimmie.   

You can enter the challenges by linking up on the 
main KKS blog or in the Challenge album
in the Krafty Friends Facebook group.
Every new creation you enter in any of the 
challenges during the month puts you in the 
drawing to win a $25 gift voucher to the KKS Shop!
We LOVE to see what you do with your KKS goodies
so go get crafty and share with us please! 

OH...and the FRUGAL FRIDAY SALES are up too!

Thanks for stopping by to visit! D

Krafty Elves - October Sneak peek for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Happy Thursday (aka Almost Friday)!
It's a special week at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS
as we start the peeks of the October new release!
Today through Saturday you see lots of inspiration with
peeks of a new stamp set (and the other goodies) each day!
Are you ready to see the first one???! 
I'm ready to share it with YOU!

Our first new stamp set of October 2020 
is by artist Sabrina VanVloten!
It's called KRAFTY ELVES!

This special set "might" look a little familiar as it
was a special release that was part of the
swag bags for the recent Krafty Virtual Fall Retreat. 
Some of the lucky participants have already used 
and shared a few of their creations with it in 
the Kraftin' Kimmie Friends Facebook Group. 

This set is just way too sweet and perfect for the 
Christmas holidays! Take a look:

Not only does it have three elves getting ready
 for Christmas with their crafts and baking,
there's also an adorable sentiment for both
the front AND the back of your card! 
And just look at the little extras - pencils, 
paints and a gingerbread cookie! So FUN!

My card today features the builder elf from the 
set and the NEW So Many Squares Stencil 
and some of the NEW Dazzling Dots.

I used the following other KKS products too:
Did you know that Granite Grey is the ink of the month
and on SALE this month?  It's awesome for creating
subtle backgrounds, no-lines coloring and softer sentiments. 
If you don't have it - now is a great time to get it. 
I taped off a portion of one of the sentiments from 
The Magic of Christmas sentiments set to get just the 
"CHRISTMAS" below my die cut word. 

All the new goodies will be available for purchase 
on Saturday, October 17th immediately following

The fun starts at 2pm EST.  Hope you'll join us! 

 There's some links to more of the Krafty Krew DT 
who also have a sneak peek creation to share with you.
Please go visit each one and as you visit leave
a comment telling us what you like about the new
products, our creations and/or Kraftin' Kimmie. 
One lucky person will win a $10 voucher to spend
in the KKS Shop just for leaving comments.
The more blogs you comment on the better your
chances of winning.  PLUS we LOVE to hear from you!
Thanks so much for visiting me today!  D

With Halloween coming soon I thought it would be
fun to make a wreath for my office door at work.
It's about 15" in diameter so it was difficult to 
get a very good photo. 

Here's a close up of the middle

for the middle piece.  The sentiment is from 
and that spooky and cute gal is from Spooky Suckers

My lovely Krafty DT pals shown below also have some
inspiration to share with you.  I think they've really
