As you know, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps has been going strong for 8.5 years and we have produced hundreds of amazing stamp sets but we can't keep them all in stock forever! So sometimes we have to retire them....but once in a while, it's super fun to bring back an older stamp set in red rubber!!

Aren't these otters just Otterly adorable! I colored mine up with polychromos pencils. I gave them a very fury look!

I stamped my image in the Krafty Kolours Ink Wicked black and the sentiment is Purple Pansy.

Fun note: after googling if otters had fur I found out they are the furriest animals on the planet. They have 2 coats one for the warmth and a second one thats waterproof isnt that cool.

Welcome back to  Day TWO of our JUNE release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We have TWO new stamp sets from artist Annie Rodrigue and these are the very LAST images from this artist. As she has chosen not to do stamps anymore and has ended her contract, we can no longer restock/reorder ANY of her stamp sets. Once ANY of the sets in the Annie category in the shop sell out, they are gone for GOOD so be sure to snap them up!
The first one is SASSY SOPHIE!


And the second is MELINDA MERMAID!

I am sharing my card using Sassy Sophie!
She is so fun and also great on cards for men! I made this one for Fathers day!


I went with a vintage/retro look for the card and stamped the image in the new MARVELLOUS MOCHA Krafty Kolours Ink and sponged a little along the edges of the paper.
The sentiment is from the Hard Workin' Dudes Stamp set and stamped in Mermaid Melody Krafty Kolours Ink.

Water challenge!

Welcome to another fabulous Krafty Challenge!
Are you ready for some krafty fun?? We want you all to play along and we love to see you join in the krafty fun and share your creations!
This week it's all about.....WATER!
***
I have been playing with the Krafty Kolours inks and the adorable Oceans of Love stamp set!

I made a sponged background with Mermaid Melody and Lovely Lagoon and added some Liquid applique for the foam of the waves! For the shape of the waves I just used the other side of the paper from a cloud die cut.

I colored up the Dolphin with RV69, 66, 55, 63 and the Turtle with Y38, 35, 21 and some YR04 in the shell.

I used WOW opague white embossing powder for the sentiment added some enamal dots and all done :)
I am loving those inks and they are amazing for this water challenge! Cant wait to see what you all come up with! Happy Kraftin!
