This week, Krafty Girl Rosie is your hostess and her challenge theme for you is: 

EMBOSSING!


Embossing is one of my favorite techniques and yet
one that I often forget to do!  When I learned how
to emboss with stencils, it created a whole 
new love of embossing for me! 
My card today features dry embossing with 
the Holly stencil and heat embossing for the berries
of the holly leaves and sentiment. 



After running the stencil through my Big Shot
die cut machine to get this awesome raised image, 
I put the stencil back on the panel and used the 
NEW Original Olive ink to brush over the
top of it.  It creates kind of a 3D effect.  
I masked off the little berries while I was inking
the leaves and then used VersaMark clear
embossing ink through the stencil and added
some glittery red embossing powder.  
 I love how it has kind of a vintage feel
with a bit of bling!
Here's a closer look at the embossing:

 I hope that I've inspired you to join our challenge 
this week and share your own creation 
using the theme of embossing. 

And guess what??? This is also one
of the challenges for our special

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Last Day of September Release Peeks and Anything Goes Challenge!!

       Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the September Release  at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


Have you been enjoying the new release peeks?
If you love Christmas - this release has got you covered!  
I have two cards to share with you using the new 
2 piece layering stencil called Pretty Poinsettias
 - this one is going to be one of my all time 
favorites for sure! 
 
Here's the first one


I used Ruby Red KKS ink on the flowers and Fresh Fields 
on the leaves. Then I used a red glitter paste over the top
of the red flowers.  I love the shimmery look of this!

Here's the second card using the same stencil but 
with a different look.  This time I brushed some
Pretty in Pink ink all over the main panel.
Then I used some very small ink daubers
for the leaves (Goblin Green), flower stars
(Yummy Yellow) and Berry Bliss on the berries.
Then I covered the whole panel with a clear
glitter paste. It's a little softer look even though
I still used the Ruby Red ink.   
 

So that's it for me today! I hope I've 
given you some inspiration with
these creations! 

As you hop around the design team's blogs today you'll be able to check out PERFECT POINSETTIAS in action in combination with a lot of our other new September Kraftin' Kimmie products!

September Skrappy Challenge - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

   Good morning krafty friends!

It's September, 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!  As soon as we have at least five people playing along, we'll be giving away a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop as the monthly prize!  

Since Halloween is right around the corner, 
I thought it would be fun to make some 
treat bags for my staff using several of 
the KKS stencils and fabulous hybrid inks. 

Not everyone in my office likes chocolate (GASP!)
so I used some flavored tootsie rolls and 
candy corn (for the ONE person who loves it
in the group).  I actually really love how fun
the candy corn mix looks with the layered 
pumpkin stencil pattern (even if I really don't
love candy corn lol).  
To make the Bats and Moons candy bag I first
colored the white bag orange with 
Pumpkin Patch ink and then stenciled over
the top of that with the new Alluring Amethyst.
So super fun (and easy) to make these gifts!  

You have until Monday, October 3rd to enter, and you can submit as many new creations as you like for more chances to WIN!  Also be sure to share your designs on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Krafty Friends facebook page because we love to see your stuff!

Check out all the details from the Krafty Team below and be inspired to get skrappy!!
