First up is the BEE-utiful set that’s on everybody’s list….SWEET AS CAN BEE!!!

I created this adorable bee inspired card for the release.  I created the background using the Sweet As Can Bee Stamp Set, and used the heart from Kraftin Kimmie’s Bugs & Kisses Stamp Set.  I used the White, Black and Yellow color scheme as I thought it added to the Bees and still made the card pop with some fun color. This set is just too adorable.

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps’ June Krafty Peeks…..Day ONE! SWEET AS CAN BEE and NEW Krafty Kolours Hybrid INKS!

Welcome, welcome, welcome!

Today we are kickin’ off our JUNE Krafty Peeks at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!
We’ve got a super sweet stamp set to share with you today!
This one is from artist Becky Pearce and it’s called SWEET AS CAN BEE!

When the Krafty Kit arrived in the mail, I immediately had so many fun projects come to mind. I could hardly wait to play with this new adorable set. For my first project I created this BUZZ-Y Bee’s Gift Box.  I used my honeycomb embossing folder to create a honeycomb/hive like background and added color to it by sponging on the two new hybrid inks. I left the embellishments rather simple as these busy bee’s were just too adorable to hide. My favorite element of this box is the flying bees attached to the lid with some curled wire. They wiggle and wobble (almost like they are flying) when you shift the box around which gives the project some nice movement.

Here are some close ups of the box lid and alternating sides of some of the fabulous bee characters.

This BEE-utiful set was included in our Summer Krafty Kit along with TWO BRAND NEW Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks!!! The set comes with SEVEN main images, some cute accessory stamps and FIVE fabby sentiment stamps for a total of FIFTEEN stamps in the set!


The gorgeous new Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks we are introducing this month are YUMMY YELLOW and MARVELLOUS MOCHA!!! You can get them in large ink pads, mini cubes and also refills!! They go perfectly with this release!!

Let’s Get Inky

I’ve got some super exciting NEWS to share with you today!
You may have heard that Kraftin’ Kimmie has been working on something top secret for the last few months and it’s FINALLY time to share it with everyone!!!

Today they are introducing you to…..
Krafty Kolours Inks by Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Kraftin’ Kimmie is thrilled to introduce a brand new product to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps line…..KRAFTY KOLOURS INKS!


These new inks are a Hybrid ink that combines the best of both dye ink and pigment ink!

– These beauties are acid free, archival and non-fading!
– This ink dries almost instantly on paper and non-porous surfaces and requires a heat set on glossy surfaces and fabric
– They have a raised felt pad that let you stamp any size stamp!
– They give a crisp, bright, non-bleeding impression!
– They come in full sized pads, mini cubes and ink refills!

With these inks you can ink directly, sponge, stencil, watercolour, you can do all sorts of techniques with them AND most exciting….the Krafty Kolours Inks are safe to use with pencils AND alcohol based markers!!

I had the chance to be one of the Guest Designers with this new product and had a blast playing around with these amazing new inks, and am just in LOVE with the purple and teal. The pads were nice and juicy and the ink did not bleed with my copic markers. Always a bonus. Here are some the projects I created using these fabulous new inks.

First off I created a book mark using a watercolor to stamp the images from the Beautiful Blooms Stamp set and used the black to stamp the sentiment.


I enjoyed the same technique of using the stamp set Beautiful Blooms and watercolor directly on the stamp but turned it into a gorgeous paper lantern. The roses in the middle are the new inks stamped directly onto paper and used more as an embellishment for the lantern.

Paper Lantern


And of course because I fell in love with the inks I was inspired by a third project where i stamped the main image from the Magical Friends Stamp set in the new black ink and also the sentiment. I used my copic markers to color the image and test to make sure the ink did not bleed.


I loved the new product and could have played even more with these beautiful inks and their colors which I feel are vibrant and pretty close to the color shown on lid. But life happens and I had to be torn away…haha.

Please join us today, we are having a big Launch Party over on the Krafty Friends Facebook page with the Krafty Girls and Special Krafty Guests sharing information about the new products, sharing tons of new projects, live videos, youtube videos, we’re doing giveaways, challenges and lots more!!

You’ll be able to purchase all the large ink pads, mini cubes and refills individually OR in sets at a small discount! PLUS there are TWO brand NEW stamp sets that are from the May release and will ONLY be released as part of the special kits!
ALSO I’ve chosen some amazing coordinating Bazzill Bling cardstocks to match the coloured inks and you’ll be able to scoop those up as well!! SO exciting!

So be sure to pop into the group today or hang out with us for all the fun all day long!! Let’s get INKY!!!

Monthly Make It Challenge

I created a very simple but fun card using Kraftin’ Kimmies stamp set Baby Love.

I made the background splatters using Pigment IZInk in Citronella, Cactus and Topaz. The sentiment banner was heat embossed with white. The Elephant image was colored using Copic markers and accompanied two adorable little birds from the same Baby Love stamp set.

Monthly Make It - April

Anything Goes Challenge

I decided to join the Anything Goes Challenge through Kraftin’ Kimmie. I made a birthday gift tag using Dino-Mite Pals. I colored the image using copic markers. Adding a tie of twine to secure to any birthday gift for that dinosaur lover. I kept the tag rather simple and just played around with the various stamps from the Dino-Mite Pals set and had some fun.


Anything Goes - Apr 20th

Pirate Loot Bags

For the fun of it I decided to create a rather simple Pirate Loot Bag using the Bootylicious stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie. I colored the image using Copic Markers and adding them to a black background. I decided to make the image pop like a logo for the bag by adding some white rope and skull and cross bone sticker. These are nothing fancy but they were simple and fun to create for the Anything Goes Challenge.

October Krafty Peeks…Day TWO!! Evangeline Angel!

Evangeline Angeline Header

Welcome to Day TWO of our October Krafty Peeks at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Did you love yesterday’s peek?? So beautiful, right?! Well then you’re going to love today’s peek too because we’ve got another gorgeous ANGEL!


I’m super excited to share this one because…..some of you have seen it already! That’s because it was the Super Secret Krafty Klub stamp set that was included in the Khristmas Kard Kit!!! So those who preordered it already have it in their inky little fingers and you’ll get to see their creations today because they are our fabulous GUESTS!

I am one of those lucky ones who snagged the awesome card kit and am happy to be one of many guests for this release.  I have to admit I had a good chuckle at Evangeline hugging the Christmas Tree and fell in love with it right away.

I created a fun Easel Card. Coloring the image in Copic markers and adding a special touch of subtle glitter to the wings and star topper using Stickles. For the garland on the tree I used Nuvo glitter drops which gave it a perfect shine. Finishing off the card with a few fun embellishments, nothing major as I really wanted to showcase this adorable and fun stamp by Annie.

Evangeline Angel Krafty Peek- Thurs. Oct 12th - WM

This adorable new stamp set comes with one large main image and three fabby sentiments!! It can be found on Kraftin Kimmie Stamps after the release party.
