Krafty Vault - My Best Friends are Witches


The Krafty Vault is being opened again!

As you know some of our old stamp sets have been retired and hard to find for quite some time. Well, we've opened the krafty vault and today we are rereleasing MY BEST FRIENDS ARE WITCHES!!!

This fantastic and spooky set comes as completely unmounted pretrimmed natural red rubber! There are only a FEW available right away and then we will be taking preorders for this fabulous set!


My Best Friends are Witches comes with two large witchy images by artist Annie Rodrigue plus a selection of five coordinating verses and sentiments! This particular set will be going live in the krafty shop at 9am EST on Friday morning!
We have also released a few others from the Krafty Vault!
Sea Jewels, Beachy Keen, Oh Snap! and Let the Good Times Roll are all either available for purchase or preorder right NOW!


For my card I used the no lines technique and it turned out absolutely amazing! I really do find this technique challenging however it is really great to use it and the images look fantastic!

For the cauldron and the smoke I pop dotted them from a second image which I had fussy cut out, this was to provide a bit more depth to the image. I used a black Doodlebug Doily in the bottom right hand corder as well. This doily is one of the minis.

I also decided I wanted to decorate the inside of the card with one of the cute sentiments from the set. I placed several flags, one of which with the sentiment on top of  a puff from the smoke which I strategically stamped and coloured.

Don't forget about the FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS that are up in the shop also! A selection of FOUR of our fabulous clear stamp sets are 40% OFF but only for the weekend! Hop on over to check out if any of them are on your wishlist!
Happy stampin'!!

Sadly today is the last peek day but don't fret as the release party is TONIGHT at 7pm EST on Facebook! You should come and join in the fun we have!!!

Our last stamp set is from fabulous new artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen!!!
It's called WOODLAND WONDERS!

The set comes with seven main images, several accessory stamps and also some fun coordinating sentiments! There's a total of EIGHTEEN stamps!!!

Well I will be totally honest and tell you how much I loved this set.

I went a little crazy making cute little cards with this set!

 I did all three cards on kraft square bases.
The paper is by Doodlebug and called Friendly Forest....really fits with the stamps don't you think???

I wanted to do a smaller square as my focal point with just a stamp and the image and slight embellishment.

In this case I used a tiny bit of twine and accented with Nuvo drops.

These images and sentiments are super fun to use and can be used in so many different combinations.

Don't forget today is also challenge day and our hostess is Krafty Girl, Jammie! And as always during release week, the challenge is ANYTHING GOES!

Can I not tell you how much I chuckled when I heard the name of this stamp....MONKEY BUSINESS....what could be better than that!!!! 


Well, the stamp itself of course!!!!! Two little jokers!
This stamp is from Emilie and features two crazy monkeys and FOUR fabulous sentiments!


I chose the sentiment first on this card and picked the monkey second. Isn't it so true though that the MONKEY BUSINESS always happens on your day! LOL

I used paper (that went so extremely well with the stamps BTW) from Doodlebug called Fun in the Sun. I combined this with shapes (palm and leaves) from Silhouette, twine, jewels and wood dots.
